    I'm not a religious person so the whole "When we die we'll either go to heaven/paradise or hell" though with so many people claiming that they saw the after life it has made me curious but there's no solid proof (actual images and/or sound).

    What are your thoughts?

    I used to think that when we'd die we'd just die and that'd be it, but who knows, there might be something else to it (sure as heck I wouldn't be willing to try it out, lol).

    I like to think so. I've invested a lot of time watching paranormal investigation shows and videos and I'm pretty much convinced.
    Unsure if it'll be anything like we imagine heaven or hell.
    From a scientific standpoint if it does exist I'll place money on it having something to do with quantum physics.

    I've actually been dead, temporarily (obviously, otherwise my ability to type this takes on a whole new meaning). I distinctly remember feeling a cool breeze on my forehead, I could smell flowers, and there's a hazy recollection of a femae voice I don't recognize telling me I still had too much to do. Not sure what it was. Maybe a religious experience, maybe just my brain's way of coping with the trauma. I don't think the human mind is evolved enough yet to answer those kinds of questions. I do try to achieve all I can with my life as a result of it almost being cut short, but whether or not that's divine mandate or just me being pragmatic is a different matter. I try not to worry about it. The end will reveal itself when it's time. No point thinking about it now, no matter what it is I can't stop it or change it. Death is inevitable. I prefer to think about life, and how best to use it.

    Very true. My most favourite quote ever relates to what you said.
    A man destined to hang can never drown - Regina Spektor

    EDIT:

    People can't be resuscitated?

    AND no one can die and and come back, only if god wills.

    Our religion says that no one can ever imagine the heaven.

    There are those who've reported to have died and then came back, but maybe it's just their brain playing tricks on them.

    Answer:
    .

    Exactly.

    Do you know if you want to be a Muslim you have to believe in the after life and that you're going to stand in front of God and you're either going to hell or heaven?

    I don't believe in life, but I do believe in something better. Your very own after-life made out of your past experiences. The more you live your life, the fullest and limitless it will be. Of course, if someone dies too young he/she gets another try.

    And if I'm wrong, eh. I'm dead anyway.

    You've been dead 6 billion years before you were born and you'll be dead 6 billion years after you die. Believing that religious nonsense is just plain stupid, it just serves to hold you in line with the rest of the sheep.

    So if your heart stops beating and your brain activity stops, as long as you 'come back to life', as far as the Islamic religion is concerned you never died?
    Interesting.

    Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!



    But He loves you

    You said it's impossible to come back to life. Some people are pronounced dead by medical professionals and then are resuscitated and brought back to life.
    They tend to be the people who talk about their experiences of the afterlife.
