Review of Do you believe in life after death?

Why have the lights gone out

Advantages: I need to believe
Disadvantages: I'm afraid not to

A year ago, I would have empathetically said yes, life goes on after death, many things happened in my childhood that I could not have put down to mere co-incidences. Over time, my beliefs have been questioned over and over again, leading always to the sa ...
