    :D YUP there sure is but its not all what people think it is

    Some go into oblivion no heaven or hell

    some latch on to this world and refuse to cross over

    some go to there heaven but that aint all cracked out to be what people think

    some go to so called hell but its not fire and brim stone thats just something man made up to scare you into doing the right thing

    hell is is kinda like a huge network of dark gloomy caves every one is naked its cold damp yet dry

    if any one here has walked on dusty dry smooth concreate and its so iriatable its like when some one scratchs a chalk bord and your teeth grind cause of the iritateing feeling every step you take

    no one aknowledges each other there all reliving in there heads regreats lost's and emotion sufering

    basicly the feeling of dread sorrow and sadness

    the devel is no man with a pitch fork and horns or a red cape

    he looks just like a reguler person maybe more handsome then most he almost looks alien kinda like a cross between a dark elf from dnd and the elfs in lord of the rings

    with anguler strange features

    he tells you half truths and sweet honey lies

    he dosent make you do anything but he missleads you alot in a charasmatic way

    theres also a few things that still roam both hell and earth from the days of old

    shadow wraths ghosts and a few nastys one creature hunts children and takes there last breath from them by suitting on there chest

    thers all kinds off ods and ends

    so yeah is there life after death yes and no it all depends on the person

    for me i think ill walk into oblivion not because of belif or lack of but because i choose to

    in hell the devill cant lkeep me

    in heaven i just acept what ever

    but oblivion i can finaly rest

    no thought no anything just blackness what all fear i embrace willingly lol

    well thats my belief

    I don't know. One option missing in your poll, so I didn't vote.
    Only dead people will know, but they can't tell it anymore.:doubt:
    Reincarnation, heaven/hell, ... Who can know?

    I think your animating spirit is like all other energy in the cosmos, it can never go away, just be transformed. I think depending on your spiritual condition when you transcend (how honed and pure you are- and yeah that translates into how good a person you were) your energy either hangs together more as it zips to its next embodiment, or fragments consistent with your level of rotteness.
    If that energy is life itself, sure there is life after death. But if that energy is merely sucked into the meeting of egg and sperm, say, to create a new life, through an unknowable miracle some call God's hand, then no, I don't think life goes forward, but the energy still will... maybe to get captured for the creation of a new life somewhereo_O?? Hmmmm...

    One of the most inspirational books that I have ever read is Life After Life by Dr. Raymond Moody written, I believe in the 1970’s. He interviewed thousands of people who had temporarily been “clinically” dead, either through almost drowning, auto accidents, the operating table, etc. Almost everyone lost their fear of dying, they found themselves bathed in a loving Light, no matter what religion they were, that DID NOT JUDGE THEM, but rather the Light let them judge themselves; very interesting and inspirational stuff.

    Gal, your description comes the closest to what I feel but I am trying not to have any concepts about anything including my first paragraph; want to have an open mind and not let any of my preconceived concepts ruin the experience for me.

    Good comments to ponder here Acadia.

    I think near death, out-of-body or spiritual experiences are very profound and leaves a deep impact on many people. Some say they are just delusions or the product of neural synapses firing in our brain. Personally, I don't think these experiences prove to us what the final physical death is like or that they are a product of someone's determination. Whatever the experience means to the person is what really matters. I think when experiences such as these happen and awaken us to greater realizations the entire meaning of death changes for us. :)

    NO!...Of course there isn't anything after Death.....It never ceases to amaze me the sheer arrogance of the the Human Being.....why do we think that we are any better than say an Elephant or a Cobra or a Dragonfly....do they have a life after Death?......We are all here by sheer accident...our Planet is here by sheer acccident....just because our brains developed faster still doesn't make us anymore unique than anything else on this Earth.

    When I was little I used to tell my Dad I was afraid of Ghosts...his answer to that was "Never be afraid of Ghosts, if, they exist they will never hurt you, what you need to do is keep your eye on the Live ones"...

    Because I lost my Mum from TB when I was 5, I always knew she loved me, so I was tempted to try and find her through so called Mediums etc.,....although they said they were 'In Contact', not one could tell me her 'Nickname' or my Sisters name who had died from German Measles 3 Months after my Mum.

    It's a lovely wonderful thought to think that there's 'Something' at the end of it all but has anyone here truthfully had any member of their truly loving family, (other than in a Dream), come to them and said " Hey! don't worry it's OK"?.........

    If your comfortable with the belief that it's not 'The End' then God Bless You...but one things for sure, one of us is going to get the surprise of our lives..... :D :D

    PS. Sorry if my view appears a little jaded. ;)

    :D lol who knows maybe there is a life after death for animals insects etc etc

    you breath air yet you dont see it but yet at times you can feel it

    some times you smell stuffs that arnt there but dosent mean they wernt there

    well if you dont think theres no life after then there isnt for you perty simple welcome to oblivion

    i dont see anything wrong with oblivion

    in truth its just diffrent for every one there isnt a right or wrong or even an is

    just that its what you want or need

    pure blackness no thought no feeling of self awareness to a few select like ourselfs welcome it

    why should one care about how others view life after death in the end you make it what it is lol

    Mr. Blaze:

    With your very last sentence - you made all the sense in the world - something I sometimes have difficulty with in your posts - but I love them nonetheless, just for their pure entertainment! :D

    Sorry to hear that you lost your mum and sister.:'(
    I can understand you doubt mediums , after hearing your experiences.
    I'm however a strong believer of the paranormal, and do believe in mediums. Unfortunately, there are some that are false.
    I always think: absence of proof is no proof of absence.
    And your right: some are going to get a big surprise. :doubt:

    "And in the End, the Love you take is equal to the Love you make." -- John Lennon

    Also, notice the Emerson quote that I always use as my signature? ;)

    EDIT: Yeah, Mediums ... there's a sucker born every minute. Houdini and Randi have destroyed a bunch of their "careers".

    Or, quite likely, the surprise of your deaths! :ninja: Anyway, it's all a bit of a moot point. Unknowable & unprovable, whatever you believe. To my knowledge, no one has received an e-mail from "the other side". In spite of all mystic/religious/paranormal attempts to explain/understand the BIG MYSTERY, maybe Dr. Carl Sagan said it best. "We are all star stuff." Collections of carbon & hydrogen atoms (with a few other ingredients) briefly brought together in the utter randomness & ifinity of the cosmos. And into that void is where we are destined to return.

    Given infinite time, perhaps we are just part of the greatest recycling project ever. :D :doubt:

    Absolutely spot on Blaze Mate... and very well put Max.........let us all make of our 'End' what we would wish it to be.....I won't say 'God Bless you all' because I don't believe....but Bless you all anyway, in whatever you do and wherever you finish up when your 'Time' comes.....for my part, if we all meet eventually in the 'Wherever', I won't be disappointed............ :D

    I would think there are a couple of ways to help validate the "medium" experience:

    Hearing from the many others that have already done so and then try one out yourself. :)

    You may be right steverio.....but just see how much information these 'Mediums' will come up with if you tell 'em you only pay on results... :D :D
