posticon Is the Afterlife (Life After Death) Impossible?

The afterlife is the belief that an essential part of an individual’s identity, or the stream of consciousness, continues to manifest after the death of the physical body. ~ Wikipedia

So what do you believe? Do we simply cease to exist after our physical bodies die? Or does some part of us live forever? Is there such a thing as the afterlife?

One scientist, Dr. Sean Carroll, physics professor at California Institute of Technology, has this to say:

“Claims that some form of consciousness persists after our bodies die and decay into their constituent atoms face one huge, insuperable obstacle…within (the laws of physics)…there’s no way…for the information stored in our brains to persist after we die….Read more

One of our readers recently sent us a question about the afterlife. Here’s her letter (which I’ve partially edited to omit unrelated information):

 “Lately I’ve been wondering if there really is an afterlife, a creator….My brother died about a month ago, and my thoughts have turned to what happens when you die. I have so much doubt right now. Maybe we are just an accident of the universe.”

 Here’s Spirit’s reply:
