    The living know that they shall die but the dead know not anything. Are the dead really ignorant...

    In the past I have met people who put your spirit/soul in the grave with you after death. Some allow it[spirit] to roam freely and may even claim that it attends its own funeral service. When people dream of their departed relative or friend, they are told they saw a demon impersonator.Recently I dreamt about a deceased parent and in the dream I found money in an unlikely place.Presently the sudden death of a colleague has created  a financial need; and money is coming from unlikely places.Why would demons want to help someone to obtain money in a time of need?Are the dead really ignorant?

    From a Christian point of view, the dead can have nothing to do with anything under the sun once they are gone.  The dead see things spiritually now, not carnally.  Their perception of our true needs changed.  Wicked spirits merely want to lead people to wicked people, and the love of money is the root of all evil. Financial blessings are not necessarily heavenly blessings - but I am sure there are many prosperity preachers that would not agree.  Peace.

    No just not alive.  I may get negative responses but the the answer seemed the most logical.

    It's more about consciousness than ignorance.  All that means is that once you're dead you cease to exist, think, or rationalize.

    The Dead body ... of course does not know ... but Souls of the Dead, are to Know ... of the Doings ... For, Deeds accompany the Soul ... Thus, you are answerable, for all you did ... And you are Awarded, or Rewarded, according to what you did ... in this life.

    For there is A Creator ... and a Just One at that.

    The dead are not ignorant. They retain their body, although apparently buried under ground. But they are free to travel and appear in places. And whenever the dead is seen in dream he/she is in his/her body. They are aware of the happenings that is going to occur with someone and they come in dreams to advise and counsel the person. The dead resent and pity the kith and kins if they forget them and do not pray for them.

    The spirit which is the real you is aware continually, it matters not that the flesh is unaware.

    This question has been tossed around again and again and again. The living are conscious that they will die, the dead are not conscious at all.  Ecclesiastes 9:5

    The bible says the soul sleeps. David said there is no remembrance beyond the grave. Deeper study i have done only brings a lot of hooha back at me. So i will just say that only upon resurrection will the person know anything, until then it is just sleep with no active spirit running around.
