it's called a myth. there is no such thing but with religion we are led to believe it occurs. i find it hilarious that some people actually believe in it and i also find it a little bit creepy that some people can be conned so easily.
I'm not convinced that there's life BEFORE death, but if I had to offer an opinion about what comes afterward, I'd say we finally get to rest. At least we'll be able to avoid election cycles.
Some people believe that when they die their physical body will turn slowly to dust but their soul will leave at the moment they pass on to begin a new life in some sort of afterworld. Most religious people have some faith in this idea.
The transmigration of souls is I think an early Egyptian belief via a mythology of the gods but there were earlier attempts to 'please the gods' on the journey home by leaving trinkets and food and such like in the grave.
Personally I don't buy this notion and tend to think that once the physical body packs up that's it. Lights out. Fin. End of story. Back to cosmic dust and reinvention through natural processes. Beautiful!!

Are you born with your soul looking the way you do when you die?Or, when you die old do you grow young in the afterlife, and die young you grow old? Is there an age limit after death?

It is still a mystery that where the soul goes after death. What do you believe/guess/imagine/assume on this???

Why is it that some people believe that they will remain even whence their physical bodies are gone? Does science back this up? Does scripture?

I often wonder about the Church and Bible. I had a friend in college who would read it every night before going to bed. He would attend church every Sunday. Is the Bible a reference on how to conduct ones life? Is it some sort of medium in which Jesus or God communicates...

This is a question for all you atheists or anti-theists. What do you believe about death; is there anything after it? Do you believe in any kind of eternal soul that lives beyond bodily death? Reincarnation? Or is death just the end?
