Seems a bit presumptuous when you consider all we don't know about space, time, the universe, our conscientiousness, and existence in general. I have trouble believing anything concrete that we can even put words to. I agree though, that people's hopes and fears have always been used as a weapon against them.No, it'll still go unanswered. There is no life after death; just death after life. Deep down, we all realize this reality. It's simply a degree of how willing we are to fool ourselves to believe otherwise, that allows us to be taken advantage of accordingly by those seeking to control us.
Whether there is or isn't is a moot point really since we the living will never know until someone comes back from the dead for real and that seems unlikely to happen since it has never done so yet. Which is why I said earlier that our main task in life is to live and focus on living until the very instant we are no longer alive. Thinking about what comes after that for us is not just a waste of the time we have to be alive but causes a stress that prevents us from doing it fully. Take it from me, that is what that depression showed me, which I have surmised since was its purpose. Suffering it liberated me once and forever from that terrible affliction.
'How far y'all going?' Ruby asked us with a sigh.
'We're going all the way 'till the wheels fall off and burn.
Till the sun peels the paint and the seat covers fade and the water moccasin dies'.

So true. As humans we seek answers to everything and when that isn’t possible we come up with our own answers in order to feel that we know what’s coming, which is another human trait. All we can be sure of is that we die. Beyond that it’s fantasyland.
The beauty of dogs is that they only live for the moment. A trait that can be considered negative in humans.

worked as a cook at a local restaurant during those college years, so it was a good read. Also enjoyed his later TV shows.
Kind of surprised posts like this are still here, as definitely brings in the topic of religious beliefs which I thought was banned on the forum. Of course you're welcome to your personal beliefs but I for one haven't had a near death experience and don't expect to know for sure until I'm done.But for what we do know from our experiences, we can give thanks to logic, reason and the scientific method. Of course keep an open mind, but extreme claims require extreme proofs. Again, deep down we all know that this is it. This is our shot, and we only live on through our genes. That's where the evidence takes us.

Well, I no sooner responded to that reported post, then proceeded to find other posts that definitely cross the line. I think sentiments have been sufficiently expressed regarding this tragic event. The best course of action is to close this thread.
