You're absolutely right. If the question is "is it possible", sure, why not? A lot of things are possible. I'm going to accept the possibility, and unfortunately too many deists/theists confuse accepting a possibility with actually believing the proposition.

I am forced to conclude that nothing can happen to us that cannot happen equally to a frog or ant or blade of grass. It is mere arrogance to suggest otherwise.

Maybe we are already dead?



Nah just kidding. No afterlife. I forget who had it as a signature, but, "you have to be some sort of moron to think that you'll survive death"

Well the only thing that I can't explain is why we get conscious the way we are, rather than simple act like a pattern identifying computer (brain) and act probably the same way, but iwthout consciousness... Why am I here, getting the information of the brain, that's what bothers me. I believe that 100% of our lives (or merely) happen in our nervous system, but then if we ARE the nervous system, why conscious, since that would mean that any material system that has a specific shape (such as our nervous system) in this universe could get consciousness the way we do, technically this could happen at huge scales as well. I don't know, I'm just still confused as fuck.

Maybe some perspective of "universal scale" is needed then. You do realize that our solar system is but a grain of sand to our galaxy and our galaxy is a mere grain of sand to the universe... so our "universal scale" is pretty much squat. If our planet was an atom bomb and blew up the universe would see a bubble kinda like we do amidst the boiling surf at the ocean. If you thinking we have anything "universal" its that we are aware of it and some think we can have some influence over it...and we do, as much as a dust mite can effect the rotation of the moon.

How do you know there isn't a heaven for the grass I cut this weekend? Or the grass that so many people smoke ...

Technically, atheism has nothing to do with afterlife because afterlife is not theistically specific and also exists for people that are nondenominational believers and possibly even some nonbelievers.

Before the Big Bang, there was nothing but crabgrass.

That's because you're stupid.

So don't worry about that.
