I've never been to Australia. I have no solid evidence that it exists. There are plenty of writings about it, and lots of people have openly accepted it, but I myself have no real, personal way to verify it's existence. So, how do I decide if it's real? Actually going there is the only real way.
Aye. Australia could be a myth. When I die, I'll be safe in any option. If there's a heaven, I might make it in. If there's no afterlife, I won't care. If I'm reincarnated, I get to be an animal. Huzzah
If an "afterlife" was on another plane of existence (for arguments sake) - say another dimension or something, how are scientists expected to find out whether it does or doesn't exist. I'm sorry, but scientists can't say "there is no afterlife" - they don't even know what they are looking for.
of course they can, becasue no matter what we ALL (and i mean myself aswell) would want to believe or how much we would like to have an afterlife. it's just not going to happen, and saying that there is, or might be one, just shows how afraid people are of the fact of simply ceasing to exist. it's just a thought, i'm the first to say that it'd be cool, if we've evolved so far, that when we die we move to a higher level of existence, but thats sci-fi/fantasy people, face it. just humanitys incapacity to accept, that no matter what we create, design, come up with, wie just die! no mumbo-jumbo, no nothing ... btw, i don't know if i'd be REALLY so pleased to die, wake up, an face an infinitive-long existence ... so i know, i can't change any of you people's minds concerning that point, but as too often stated: hope's the last to die! and btw, i need something to do until i my time has come to cease to exist.
I think all the Aussies of the world kinda prove that Aussieland exist. might be a big british hoax though, you never know
ZeRoNiTe;3268836My thought is you don't know you are dead, and you go on to live the life of another person from birth/conception. You can't remember your previous life, obviously because you're a different person with a different brain/mind.[/quote]If this is the case, then you wouldn't be "you". That new being (the baby that is born) is someone else, it isn't you.ZeRoNiTe;3268836Has anyone actually thought about what actually made you, you? How is it you became to be you and not anyone else? That said, you are someone else to anyone but yourself. Weird thinking, huh?[/quote]A person is "them" because of their experiences throughout life. It is what makes that person, it is their memories and encounters that make that person who they are.I've heard of it yes, but don't see how you can relate that to this topic.

We can't weigh it, see it on any spectrum, touch it, smell it, or anything like that. If we can't at least weigh it than I am sorry but it doesn't exisit.Pixies are "suppose" to be little people with wings. So yea, it's plausible that they don't exist. An afterlife and Soul on the other hand are something completely different. They don't have essence in our reality. [quote=Aeroflotte;3270956]Ever heard of "Absence of proof is not proof of absence?"Floorwax;3269126Oh? Prove it. You can't. I can't prove it exists. One answer isn't "more right" than the other.[/quote][/quote]:ditto: You can't prove whether a "Soul" exists or doesn't. Scientists don't know what a Soul is, it may not "weigh" anything. Those say an afterlife doesn't exist because scientists can't prove it. Well of course they can't. They don't know what they are looking for. Same goes for the Soul.Yet, if we go with that theory, you wouldn't be "you" anymore. There would be a new person quite possibly with some of your memories buried deep inside. [quote=ZeRoNiTe;3269724]So if we can't prove magical pixies exist, or can't prove that they don't exist, they could still exist? Since when was it possible to prove that something doesn't exist when it simply isn't there?nameless720;3268973I think that sounds like a good concept. Heaven sounds like a pretty boring place to me to spend all of inernity. I would rather come back to earth again. Here you have the choice with the kind of life style you want to live. In heaven, you dont.[/quote]How do you know? We are only told of Heaven by some Book. Say (for a moment) that it does exist. There may be no "Rules". Everything would be different. Say someone who used to be a Murderer went to Heaven, what are they going to do? He / She can't go round killing people because there are no people to kill. [quote=Afterburner;3269130]Allright here is the idea I have always had, but it might be a bit hard to understand. When you die, that is it. but that isn't it, you go on to live another life like Zeronite says, but you don't know. So in a sense, it is nothing, but in another sense, it is reincarnation.[quote=Ihaterednecks;3269138]It's not that hard of concept to grasp, in actuality. Your basicly seeing through the eyes of something again, with no memory or knowledge of a previous life.
You simply can't say that :vikki: You don't know what is "next" nobody does. Nobody can say one or the other, we can only speculate. As for Science Fiction. Quite a few shows, and the content within them is based on Reality and "what could" happen. The only two things that get my mind wondering are what is "outside" of the universe, and what awaits us when we die. If nothing, then fine, we don't / wont know about it. However, if something (whether it be heaven or something completely different) we are suppose to last there forever... Surely we'd get bored or something...
I've heard of it yes, but don't see how you can relate that to this topic
I don't know what you're talking about. :lookaround:
Seems plenty related to what zeronite said.
I believe in reincarnation. But in the case that those Christians are right, hell be mineth place.
