Do you really know What Happens When You Die? Will You Go to Heaven Or Where? See What Happens

“What happens when you die?” you might think. You are the latest in a long line of historical figures to wonder the same thing.

 

The afterlife has historically been important to societies all throughout the world. In Greek and Roman mythology, it was referred to as an underworld. Valhalla, a paradise, was referenced by the Vikings. In Chinese mythology, there is a concept of the Diyu, or hell. For many Great Plains tribes, it was a “good hunting field.”

Long before recorded history, people interred the dead with food, tools, jewels, and other useful items. The fact that the living assumed the dead would need these things after they passed away indicates that they had faith in a hereafter.

Diverse Points of View

Science and medicine

Students studying science and medicine have come to very different conclusions about death. Some people consider that believing in science precludes the supernatural, including life beyond death. Others argue that science reveals, or at the very least hints, that there is life after death.

Stephen Hawking, a scientist, compares death to a computer that breaks down. He had a fantasy of the hereafter.

Nobel Prize winner Max Planck contended that science proved that the mind is not a product of physical matter (such as brain cells). Since it exists outside of physical matter, it might survive physical death.

Others assert that since the fundamental law of thermodynamics indicates that neither energy nor matter can be created nor destroyed, life cannot end after death.

Medical professionals and researchers have also studied the experiences of people who were declared clinically dead but later came back to life. In a significant scientific investigation, a team from the University of Southampton in England found signs of consciousness after a time of cardiac arrest without any brain activity.

Based on study and case studies like this, some scientists have come to the conclusion that there must be life after death.

Philosophy

Additionally, philosophy has a lot to say about this. Ancient thinkers like Socrates and Plato believed that the soul persisted after death. Immanuel Kant later came to the opinion that morality required the existence of both a just judge and an afterlife.

Intellectual atheists who rejected the idea of an afterlife included Marx, Lenin, and Nietzsche. They believed that enjoying life fully and believing in a hereafter were mutually exclusive.
