I'm having a hard time dealing with non-existing after life. I mean I don't believe in any Gods so therefore there is no reason to believe in an afterlife. I know my conscious mind will be gone and therefore I will not be aware of anything but i still can't believe in completely and total darkness after life.

 

what do you all believe happens after death? Maybe hearing others opinions will make me feel better about this.

'Spook', by Mary Roach, is a very entertaining and informative book about the soul, spirit, and afterlife. I'd also recommend her book 'Stiff'.

 

Excellent recommendation

You make death sound like the lights are out. Darkness. There needs to be a you to perceive darkness. Death=no more you. We are now sure that the universe and everything in it will just go dim and cold and simply stop existing in any meaningful way. Not even a Big Crunch. We are sensible and rational creatures, used to being able to wrap our minds around concepts, but you can't really get a handle on death because death is death. It isn't an experience we can analogize to something else in our experience the way we can analogize birth to a variety of experiences. Coming into being we understand. Going out of existence is something we will never understand.

Imho Who's to say? My belief is that we only have one life and we should live it to the fullest.

Be kind to every other living thing and learn as much as we can about the things that interest us, so that we fully understand what we enjoy the most.

Why do we make life so complicated? We think too much maybe.
