The Science to an Afterlife

What happens when you die? Do you go to heaven? Are you born again, but in the future? Is the light at the end of the tunnel the light to another hospital room? These are all questions we all would love to have the answer to, many choose to simplify it by simply believing or creating a religion or a "god". But what is the science to an afterlife? Nobody actually knows what makes you, well, you. If you were to copy your brains atoms in the exact same pattern it's in right now, and then killed the current you, you wouldn't magically exist in that other body, or would you? Probably not, but what defines you then? Is it the electrons in the brain? Probably. Do you have a soul? Debatable. What about parallel universes? Where an infinite amount of universes exist, and atoms can only be in a finite amount of ways, and eventually it would have to start repeating. Would the electrons in your brain be repeated? Probably, as parallel universes also feature scenarios and decisions, every possible scenario and decision exists in a universe. And scenarios and events are what causes certain electrons in your brain. But, why would you teleport to that body after you die? Why don't you teleport there now, if parallel universes do exist? See? A dozen questions out of one: "Is there an afterlife?" There could surely be a lot more, an infinite amount of questions in an infinite amount of languages.

I do not believe in heaven or hell any longer. Nor do I believe in a deity that will get us to heaven, if only we believe. I grew up with the shame and guilt shoved down my throat for "not being good enough," "not worthy of God's love, but he gives it anyway," and in a family and extended family/school, etc.where they were supposed to be the ones who showed us by example what love is/was. Well, the more I questioned, the worse I was, and the closer I was to being the devil. I reject that now. And, if there really is a hell, I am already here.

Personally, I don’t believe in God either. I’m an atheist.

@Rexion If you don't mind my asking...how old are you? How old were you when you came to this realization? Did you grow up with any religion, other than the national religion of Lutheranism? Is that even still a "thing" in Sweden? Did your parents believe?

@CoralLevang I’m 14 and I’ve never actually believed in God. I don’t see my dad, but I think he is Christian. My mom says that she believes in God, but her ”own” God.

Yeah, I should start studying metaphysics someday. We can still share our thoughts and memories via physical means such as books, drawings, paintings or music. In one way, we become immortal once we leave something that will never be erased or forsaken. I think we have a physical body and an energetic one, made of electricity or something ethereal. That energy should leave the physical body once it's done, energy can't just disappear.

That’s actually an interesting theory! I never thought of that. ”Energy can not be created, it can not be destroyed, only transformed”

Science agrees I think with what you wrote. It just bothers me that I am so small in comparison to the rest of the universe.

I don't think the Philippines actually exists. I've never been there.

I like this topic and like discussion about it. Asking these questions is great but they are very difficult questions even for science. Science fiction perhaps may give us more than science and what little science gives is theoretical. That is why I suppose some people say if you will find out you will know after you die. There is little to believe or create from science (real science) on this topic? Perhaps religion got mentioned in this topic because it does?

However, a scary thought; If nothing happens, if you just disappear, I mean, you can't think or anything, just black, not even black, you know what I mean. Then you wouldn't know ;(

@Rexion True, no doubts. But then I guess we could take comfort in knowing that hell, after you die there will be no pain, no sorrow, no fear because there is after really nothing.

There is an after life and we go to heaven or h*ll.
