This is a thought I've had for about a year now or so and I've never really looked into it much and most likely has been stated before if not a common
grounds among philosophic literature. Anyways, it's basically this:
In our current lifetime, the reason that we'll most likely never be able to ineffably prove or disprove the existence of a god (synonymous to anything
like creator) or afterlife is because in our current level of evolution among our consciousness and species is too "low" and that if anyone were to
know and make known globally definite evidence of such or lack thereof, it would cause a completely different mentality among everyone living.
*Afterlife is anything that is said to possibly occur after one physically dies, e.g: Heaven, reincarnation, Hell, etc.
*The disproving of such would also completely eliminate theoretical and quantum physic fields that discuss possibilities of different realities,
dimensions, entanglement, etc. as well as the existence of extraterrestrial life, the soul, demons, spirits, ghosts, angels, and any other
I can't really say as to what I think it would be like if a god's existence and the afterlife was definitely proven and made publicly known because
I'm unsure how to word out correctly what would result consequentially.
As for the definite proof that there was no god or afterlife and made publicly known, I have a few questions. Would the fear of death, damnation, and
among typically other religiously influenced factors currently affecting us, disappear? What would happen to morality? Assuming that the proof of this
showed that when you die absolutely nothing happens to you, - that's just it and you're done - would it change people's worldview on living (and in
general) in "the now"?
That's essentially it because I'm not sure as to how I'm supposed to write my conjecture[s] when I haven't entirely finished thinking it out
thoroughly, so feel free to give me any feed back, thoughts, or anything else. Anything's welcomed.
