    The existence of life after death is a universal question. Lots of people believe that there is, so it’s a plausible question, which actually does have a scientific answer. Astounding advances in neurobiology have shown us that our physical being is entirely controlled by our brain. Consciousness is an emergent property of the functionality of brains. It’s there in varying degrees in most animal life forms, and becomes impressive- even if only to ourselves- in humans. Test after test, experiment after experiment, study after study show us that everything we do and think comes from the processes within our brain. There are a lot of people who have set out to prove that there is a ‘soul’, for example (or any other term you like for a consciousness which is separate and apart from our physicality), but in every case that adheres to true scientific methods, the proof is the opposite. The very idea that life ends at death is unsettling to many people. After all, we don’t want to die, so if we construct a viewpoint which takes our bodies but not our minds, we feel far more at ease with the whole process. This is a perspective which is put forth by most religions, along with the existence of someone which is managing the whole mess. Brilliant people aren’t safe from harboring these ideas – the physicist Roger Penrose, when outside his day-job of rigorous study, lent his name to a group which seeks out ways to bring a ‘soul’ into believable existence. But, they simply make extrapolations which are unfounded, untreatable and not even logical in their quest. Even one of the world’s most advanced physicists can’t show why anything supernatural would exist. That doesn’t mean that there is nothing physics can tell us.

    Yes, you know what , when there is God there has to be Evil as well as there has to be a life after death as well. It's really a simple logic!!!!!!!!!!!!
