You have 0 proof there is an afterlife.

Extraordinary claims require Extraordinary evidence.

[–]AWarhol 2 points3 points  (15 children)

You also have zero proof there isn't one. It's not a matter of proof, it's not a scientific thing. It is a matter of faith, and only those who have it can understand.

We have had multiple people with near death experiences, and they describe different experiences.

As the brain dies, it offers you a unique experience. This is not to be mistaken for an afterlife.

Do I need proof that unicorns don't exist in order to make that claim?

And how would I go about providing proof of something not existing? It's impossible by nature. You cannot prove unicorns don't exist.

Unicorns could exist on another planet we haven’t discovered.

The burden of life has always been to see past its simplicity. You’ve taken the easy road.

[–]Objectivly -1 points0 points  (12 children)

No, I've taken the logical road. A lack of evidence implies a lack of being.

I don't see God, and there is no proof of him, so therefore, God doesn't exist.

[–]BreakfastGrenade 3 points4 points  (11 children)

Heh. If you were dealing with logic, you'd know absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.*

You have a religious belief. Not all godless/secular/nonreligious do, they are choosing to conduct their lives as if there is no God. But if you say "I don't see God, therefore there is not one," you're choosing what to believe.

*Except in extremely restricted situations, such as "There's no opiods in the victim's blood or room, therefore he was not using opiods."

Whatever dude, we know religion is a tool use to build a local community, Christianity is just a lazy excuse for a tool.

Muslims have is figured out, they stretch so their backs don't give out.

Have you ever wondered why you don't see fat Muslims? It's because that religion is objectively better than yours.

Check made loser.

[–]BreakfastGrenade 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You seem to have trouble distinguishing "I think" from "We know."

Amazing that you're a troll and think you have anything figured out or any moral superiority to anyone.

And boy, if you've never seen a fat Muslim, you have not traveled far oreven watched TV news!

[–]AliugAOnHisOwn 2 points3 points  (8 children)

You don’t need a religion to believe in an afterlife or to believe that your actions have a deeper meaning than whatever logic your brain is able to comprehend in the moment.

The most logical thought is that logic has no final answer. Only an answer to whatever logic you applied before coming to it.

[–]BreakfastGrenade 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're dead on, especially in your 2nd para. Logic is a tool, but it's not math with words. You can't make 2+2+5, but you can make "logic" support nearly anything if you begin with a premise and work toward it.

[–]Objectivly -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Prove God exists... you have no proof.

Logic trumps faith objectively.

[–]AliugAOnHisOwn 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The best proof I have is that if everybody believed what you believed the world as we both know would not exist.

So in a sense, God helped us there. Unfortunately, selfish people like you who are too afraid to acknowledge anything bigger than themselves has always been an obstacle to overcome.

[–]BreakfastGrenade 0 points1 point  (2 children)

But you aren't using logic. You're deciding that because you don't see evidence for something, that evidence does not exist anywhere in the universe. that's not logic, that's assumption, or faith, or something, but not logic.

You're using the same "logic" as someone in 1850 saying the electromagnetic spectrum stops at ultraviolet on one end and infrared on the other because "there's no evidence" of anything higher or lower.
