    Do you contend that the afterlife is actual or a fantastical idea propagated by religion in order to assuage people that there is something....better?   To those who believe in the afterlife, do you strongly contend that the afterlife is a guide as to how to live your life?  To those who don't believe in an afterlife, do you believe that the afterlife is a distractor in living the fullest life?  YOUR THOUGHTS?

      I think some religious ideas may just come from experience.  Testimonies of Near Dear Experiences are quite compelling.  Scientists thinks so, too.

      Nobody should have any consciousness after clinical death, but people do when they have NDEs. 

      To me, the afterlife is not a guide.  God is.  The Holy Spirit is on earth to guide us, not something to be guide us in the afterlife when it is irrelevant.

    Almost impossible to answer a question like this. No one that has passed away can tell us what happens, and we cannot come back to life after dying. Afterlife, reincarnation, etc is more of a assurance so that people would stop thinking about their death and what happens after.

    There is enough evidence for me to accept there is something after this life. What that something is remains a mystery.
