I see some people saying that when you die, it's all over, and nothing remains, literally nothing. I find this as devoid of reason as saying there is heaven or other afterlife.
"Realistic" people may try to convince me that whe I die there will be "nothing", total destruction. But what is the base for that claim? Absolutely none. The person who feels smater than christians or other people for believing he is going to be totally vanished and nothing will exist after that is as deluded as anyone. Let's analyze:
1. Have they ever died? Then how come they know what it's like?
2. If they claim that it is because all brain activity will cease, then have they ever experienced this nothingness they talk about? If not, how can they claim that it exists? This is as speculative as assuming the existence of God. No one that I know of has ever experienced nothing. There is always something everywhere. It contradicts the laws of physics. So where the hell did they get this nothingness from?
3. If they say that they have actually experienced nothingness, and that it was the state before they were born, then how do they know how it was like then, if they were not even born yet? If they know what nothing feels like because they were not born, I can know what the big bang or the first human being making fire was like, because I was not born in that time too. Seems unrealistical? Then why the nothingness assumption seems realistical? Because they cannot remember what it was like before being born? I can not remember what is was like being 1 month old, or being in the uterus (and they say babies dream there). Does that mean there was nothingness there too? Why should the fact that there is no memory before we were born account for nothingness before and after life, if the fact that there is no memory of early stages of consciousness does not?
To resume: No one has ever seen this "nothing", it is a concept created by humans with as much evidence as any god or afterlife. Anyone that thinks they are smater for facing the terrible abyss of blackness that is death and not delude themselves with afterlife does so out of their imagination alone.
