Review of "Do you believe in life after death?"
Is there life after death? What a patently absurd question! Of course there is! Speaking for myself (and who else would I presume to speak for?) I have been dead for some time now, and as far as I can tell no-one has noticed!Seriously (or at least as seriously as I can manage) I have a bit of a bone of contention here - or maybe a few:
Firstly, why does it matter? We can never expect to prove whether there is or isn't life after death. If we manage to die and come back to haunt our nearest and not-so-dearest all that happens is that a blanket of doubt is thrown over the whole thing…or you get to see someone being sectioned up close and personal.Secondly: Who do we think we are? What makes humans so bloody special anyway? To quote someone pretty clever…maybe Jonas Salk - if insects were to disappear tomorrow, within 50 years all the species of the world would have disappeared. If humans were to disappear tomorrow, within 50 years all the other species of the world would be prospering. Why on earth would the cosmos benefit from the continuing presence of humans - Pre or post-mortem?
Strikes me that this is a very SHORT review, and maybe all the better for it. It is, however written from the heart.I will continue to live my life for today; doing some good where I can and bringing some pleasure where it's possible. I will not save up my best stuff until I die in the hope that I can somehow cash in after shuffling off the mortal coil.
I suspect my strong views on this topic stem from finally getting round to writing a will, and giving voice to my wish to have my raddled corpse used for whatever medical or scientific purposes might suit, and stating unequivocally that I wanted no funeral of any sort.Of course…I'll be dead, so it won't matter one squeaky little bit to me if my wishes are totally ignored. Rest assured, I won't be back to haunt anyone!
