We do leave a note behind it is our remains. It is the way that our loved ones know we have ceased to exist on this earth. Could you imagine if you took your body with you when you die there would be no closure for anyone just as people that do disappear and the grief the family goes through not knowing whether they are alive or dead.
As for belief in the afterlife, yes I firmly believe there is somewhere else after this. The only way you truly experience this is to be with a person who is dying and in the final days or hours before death. What happens is enlightening. My mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September and gone by mid-February of the next year. Near the end, she was talking to a space above us near the ceiling on another level. There were many things that happened but I am not going into great detail, lets just say once you have experienced this, you will never forget, nor be a skeptic.
Another thing I have wondered about and thinking about loved ones and their experiences with life threatening illness or accidents is the Exit Points we choose before beginning our lives here. When I was in my teens I had an operation and remember leaving my body and floating over but did not leave the operating room but watched them trying to revive me. I had an allergic reaction to one of the anesthetics used at the time. I came back but remember it like it was yesterday. That was exit 1. I have gone many years since that one, my next and probably final exit point is Diabetes Type 1. Since I was diagnosed with this at 37 and have had some really low lows that could have easily put me in a coma. This is Exit 2. In 2007 I had 2 Exits 3 and 4, the first being some kind of an allergic reaction with hives and very low BP and an appendix attack and nearly died, so now I think number 5 is on my doorstep, not sure how long before this one happens. Not for a while I hope.
If anyone thinks back are there exit points that you have had and chose not to take? Although this is sort of off topic I think it is all related and if you believe in an afterlife, we all planned this life with things to accomplish and exits we choose to leave it once this is done...
Oh by the way you can read as many books as you want but until you experience any of this first hand you can't comprehend.
The only way you truly experience this is to be with a person who is dying and in the final days or hours before death.
I have looked, and continue to look.... at as much evidence either way as I can get my hands on.
So - are you implying that you will, now, look at the evidence that opposes your claims?
Ball's in your court......
There is no proof. Over 150, 000 people die each day, yet out of all these cases, not a single anything has been found to remain.
"Colton, still 4 years old, told his mother “you had a baby die in your tummy didn’t you”, which completely shocked them both because they had never told him about their miscarriage. They asked him how he knew and he said that he met his sister in Heaven and she told him what happened."
"Well he’s 7 years old now and it took a couple of years for his parents to really understand what happened, but when Colton Burpo was four years he was having surgery in the hospital for a burst appendix. While he was in surgery he apparently had some sort of out of body experience and could see what his parents were doing. He witnessed that his dad was praying and his mom on her cellphone. Both parents say they have no clue how he knew that, but that it’s absolutely true. And the story just gets more interesting from there.
Apparently during the same surgery Colton went to Heaven where he recounts how he met his grandfather who he had never known, who he later recognized in photos. The interesting thing is that he didn’t recognize photos of his grandfather as an old man with glasses, which is how everyone knew him, but rather as a young man. Colton’s father literally had go find a photo of ‘Pop’ as a young man before Colton was able to recognize him. Now that’s pretty wild.
Four year old met his mother’s miscarried child in Heaven
"Dr. Rodonaia was killed by the KGB, pronounced dead, taken to the morgue for three days and returned to life during his own autopsy. Dr. Rodonaia was a psychiatric researcher who worked for the KGB and later became a dissident. He was a scientist trained in historical materialism and did not believe in God."
"George Rodonaia underwent one of the most extended cases of a near-death experience ever recorded. Pronounced dead immediately after he was hit by a car in 1976, he was left for three days in the morgue. He did not "return to life" until a doctor began to make an incision in his abdomen as part of an autopsy procedure. Prior to his NDE he worked as a neuropathologist. He was also an avowed atheist.

I feel sorry for you, you must not have anyone close to you or who has gone through this to provide you with your own first hand experience. No book in the world is going to satisfy your need for proof. Proof is in the eye of the beholder.
Seriously, WHAT IS IT TO YOU? What if there IS proof? WHY are you so pissy about this, Mr Randi????
You want me to become a scientist and invite you to the experiment?
You are being ridiculous. Read the book(s), or don't. I don't care. You are being ridiculous.
Either tell us WHY you refuse to even entertain the notion, or..... well, move on.
The door is over there ------------------------>
But I see what your "proof" amounts to, nothing but blind conviction in someone else's story. Bravo.
Call me crazy~
This is nothing new
