I can say without a doubt that we continue on after "death". Hummm maybe it should be called our "new beginning".
Our spirit DOES continue on. Yes- I died once (in this life time) That's how I know.........been there done that kind of a thing.. indescribable in human terms. Close with "unconditional love" but it is as close as you get yet still a million miles away from what it is. Heaven---yes...and no. Not like it is written in the bible but it is like coming home. So amazing.........
I am also a lead investigator on our paranormal group........we continue on people!!!!! Death is Not the end. It's just the next step in our journey.

Actually science already tapped a part of the next level by measuring the light you body gives off. Not spiritual aye? If anyone of us was to take a picture in uv light guess what shows up at the top of you head.... A spiral. You guys be the judge but also do extensive research for we are in our universal stage of consciousness.

That "energy cannot be created nor destroyed" meme is a prime example of bad science, with the mainstream completely misunderstanding what that statement actually means and running off a cliff with their own interpretation without anyone from the scientific community straightening the confusion out. Then the new (wrong) version becomes an axiom, and it's never challenged again.
How can energy be created or destroyed? do you know what happens to particles at zero Kelvin? do they freeze, vanish into other states or form? does pressure become zero? does life stop to exist at zero Kelvin? Does energy stop to exist at zero kelvin? Is it possible to create and destroy energy above zero Kelvin???
Read experiments on super conductors and know the theory and the evidence and stop talkin no-sense

His qualifications as a physicist and cosmologist make him more qualified to determine the existence of a magical afterlife than more 99%. of the population. If he doesn't think it exists, I'm more likely to believe him based on his credentials alone. His thoughts on the existence of some dimension or alternate reality which might be heaven could probably be considered an expert opinion.
Remove the fact that he's physically crippled and has to use a computer to talk. Also keep in mind that his books were written so that the layman could understand them if that helps you gauge his qualification, because inside that crippled body resides a powerful mind which is very active.

Honestly... Stephen Hawking saying there is no afterlife is like the Pope saying there is an afterlife.
It really shouldn't surprise anyone.
I fear that once again, as always, people are going to take this as reason enough to change their belief system- "Well Stephen Hawkings says so, and he's smart, so he must be right!!!!".
Honestly... take this as we should take everything- with an open mind.
Figure out the answers yourself- don't look to others to answer life's questions for you; look within yourself to find the answers.
