If there was definitive proof that when you die, their is no after life, no heaven, hell, thought or existence, how would it alter your behavior if at all?
(note: the question is not about what you believe to be true but what actually is fact in the scenario of the question)
I wouldn't change at all. I already live my life by that. I live for what I have here and that is all I need. No need to fear or hope for an afterlife when we already have a wonderful amount of time to live how we choose.
To me it makes no difference at all. My goal is to be a good person that gives love and receives love. I do not fear retribution, I do not hope for a heaven, I do not mind to dissolve and return to the source of all life.
Your 'Team Leader'
It would alter almost everything I do. Because the biggest question is not, is there an afterlife, but, is there a God? And my proof that has satisfied me to the existence of God has also satisifed me that there is an afterlife.
It would change everything.
Probably remain the same way I am. However, I may be a little more chaotic and outgoing to live life.
It would not make a difference.
One should not live life in expectation of a reward. We should all make the best of what time we know we have. That is just the present. No one is guaranteed anything more than this very moment. So use that moment to the full and try to make a mark that will leave people happier and richer than they would have been without you.
Our faith and belief is an important part of our lives. It is like our goals where we seek to achieve.
If it comes a day when we have proof of no after life, it will still be the same as we seek a new goal for the next generation.
We are creatures of circumstances therefore we can adapt quickly to any form of changes and learn from it. Life goes on ...
First of all, I would be very sad
My life has centered aroun the existence of a loving God who has promised me a place with Him in eternity. But nothing would change. I'm not going to start robbing banks and shooting people down in the streets. I would go on respecting life and living a life of love.
I think realizing that our actions have consequences here and now should always be the driving force behind our behavior, so no change for me.
it wouldn't make any difference. i already no that's is what's going to happen. it would sure end religion fast though.
First off, this is an interesting question!
Personally, I believe that uncertainty is a necessity of life; thus, knowing what awaits after you leave this plane would certainly (IMHO), cause people to act with a sense of urgency in seeking out dreams or goals. The only problem with that is it would be disingenuous for some people. I'm rambling, sorry! Honestly, if I could know the answer, I wouldn't want to know!
I think I would still try lo live life at it's fullest, I would try as hard as could to spend as much time with people in my life as I could, I personally believe there is a after life, or more like just an extension to this one......There is so much energy in the atmosphere to prove other wise.
It would be impossible to realize such a scenario after we, as humans and most who have very strong religious beliefs and WE, after being exposed to why we are born, die and have after lives, can no longer relate to such a possible happenstance. As adults and experiencing life. as we know it, and having been given a choice in belief in a creator, and what to expect if we are not faithful in our beliefs, have meaning and a desire to procreate our species. We have high intellect and know in our hearts that there is a God. Living the good life and in following Him and having an after life in the spirit, is what allows most believers to lead a useful and sharing life that is meant to be. If there was no belief, utter chaos and destruction would reign foremost, and there could be no enjoyment in life at all, as we see today. Human kind would create kingly gods in some form on this earth and there could be no truth and goodness left in which we could all benefit from in our futures. This is why our Creator sent Jesus , His son to save the lives of those who would follow and provide a way to live in the spirit with our God.The fight of good against evil, has been a part of our existence and without the good, evil would self-destruct and all life would be gone from this world.

If you had definitive proof that god couldn't possibly exist would you tell everyone?The evidence is irrefutable and only you know now what do you do ?I'd have to let it go and not tell anybody.
