RE: Your views: Life after death?
Trying to explain what happens after death would involve explaining conciousness and how our brain works, so i'd like to keep it short... Your brain is constantly "going", and recording memories. You die, and it isn't anymore, and all your memories and feelings are gone forever. Though, there is one thing I can't comprehend -- if you fall into a coma or become unconcious, is waking up essentially starting a new life with the same memories?

To be fair, all of them would have been converted to other substances or split apart so many times, it probably couldn't even be classed as the same molecule anymore

its not exactly the same. during sleep, you're very concious. in a coma, you essentially "stop."

What about when your brain dead? Are you still living? technically your organs are still operating.

You don't know Christianity then. The accepted beleft it either the 'design' theory or the 'causation' theory, all which make some sence. Like most Bible stories, they have symbolism behind them and well as tradition.

RE: Your views: Life after death?
Being as i was raised as a roman/ukranian catholic, it's kinda hard for me to think that there isn't a life after death. I guess when you think of it there isn't really a possibility to be alive outside of he human body. I would say that your views come from whats around you, and what you were  tought.

I do however belive that the whole idea of life after death does make it easier for us to handle death, for example, I'm sure that it would be much easier to tell a young child that "Don't worry, Grandma is with God now, it's better there." vs "Sorry jimmy, Grandmas gone, you'll never see her again."

lol it's ok, when people hear Christians they automatically think brainwashed people who believe everything the Bible says. That's why there are so many different types of Christians, because of the way they interpretate the Bible :P.
