I had 2 .....Yip

AdvantagesCant wait

DisadvantagesNone....Gotta be better than this

"Twice that happened to me! Life after death is the question and yes I believe. This is my 2nd review and I am registered disabled. I have been since 1993/4 (no sympathy thanks its ok) and in that year I had 1 experience and again a few years later. One very brief and the other very very scary. The 1st happened after I got out of hospital. I was still very unwell and was laid up downstairs on the settee. I had lost 5 stone in weight in ..." Read review

Are you still out there dad?

AdvantagesKnowing your loved one is well

DisadvantagesWhat if we're wrong?

"...what was going on nor do I think I was scared. I was puzzled when someone came to take me away to spend the night at my neighbours. Everything from that night onwards is a blur. I just remember things of many months after, probably two or three years later… Was I told he’d gone to heaven? I don’t know. Don’t want to ask as it still upsets me. Don’t think it did then because I did not know what death was…but I wonder how I felt when someone that ..." Read review

Its Death Jim but not as we know it

AdvantagesAdvantages of Death ?

DisadvantagesDisadvantages of Death ?

"...you burn these all you do is release the stored energy in the form of heat and light (also sound if its explosive) Might not the living things on our planet also be looked at as simply ways of 'storing' energy. Batteries if you like. When we eat plants and animals all we're doing is releasing their stored energy into a form that can be utilised by our bodies. We're like the old steam locomotive engines and food is our equivalent of coal recharging ..." Read review

Living your life for when it's over.

AdvantagesA peaceful haven for the grieving.

DisadvantagesWhere is the evidence?

"...have their theories. Personally I do not believe in life after death, I believe that we only get one chance, and one life, I believe that we should make the most of what we have been blessed with. And the mere proposition of ghosts and spirits roaming the earth undiscovered makes me laugh. Man has discovered how to clone animals, man has set foot on the moon, man has even gained the knowledge of how to prolong human life, and yet after all these ..." Read review

YES. I do believe in life after death. Review with images

AdvantagesMaintain a belief throughout your life that will help you

DisadvantagesThe pain and loss.

"...him very much as I do my mother,I've never seen them,but-my oldest son Matt,who is now 17 has felt and smelt my father.-he descibes his favourite aftershave;it's no big deal to him,but it gives me comfort to know that my parents look out for us-and visit sometimes. Matteo seems to have inherited the same gift from his grandad,but he doesn't go around broadcasting it. (peers and all that..!!sorry matt!) Well,I hope you have enjoyed hearing my ..." Read review

Solid evidence, or a feeling in the soul?

AdvantagesMakes you feel good if you believe it

DisadvantagesIt's a belief...not a fact

"...yes and no. I do believe that the soul lives on - but not necessarily in a "place". I'm convinced that the soul of the dead is carried by those who knew them. Now, whether this is simply "knowledge" of the person, or something more is something I still haven't worked out. All I do know is that what I believe in works for me. And that's the key thing. I believe it. I don't know it, and I sure as anything can't prove it! ..." Read review

Life After Death

AdvantagesTo be seen

DisadvantagesAs above

"...- no more us? Or do we live on after death, continuing to experience things in new realms? Do we have some sort of immaterial "soul" which is actually the origin of our minds and consciousness now? Does this "soul" continue on after our deaths, migrating to some sort of heaven or higher dimension? All difficult questions, to be sure. And although it is not true that all atheists and all theists will answer the same way, it is a fact that most atheists ..." Read review

Do You Beleive....????????

AdvantagesThe Truth

DisadvantagesNone this is great hehe

"...never really understood why people do this. I'll try and avoid ranting in this because my grandparents are the most religious people ever, everything they say or do has to revolved around god or something to do with religion. I thought that people like so are suppose to accept everyone and forgive anything that they have done prior to their changed life. They are probably the most prejudice people I have ever come to know. I'm ok saying this mainly ..." Read review

My views - Life after death, God, Science (update) Review with images

AdvantagesComforting thought

DisadvantagesProbably untrue

"...to not proceed. However, I do aim to give another view, my view, something different. I hope some can take what I say on board, I hope it helps some people think, perhaps strengthen their own views. For I believe that things in life should be questioned, why blindly believe in something? I am a scientist, a physicist in fact. My love of the subject has spawned from my inquisitive nature. I like having answers, having tangible things and questioning, ..." Read review

Death is but the next great adventure

AdvantagesHope, eternal life

DisadvantagesAre we just deluded?

"...aware has asked itself. Where do we come from? Why are we here? Where do we go when we die? Don't worry, I'll only make my feeble attempt at tackling the last question otherwise we'd be here all day. These are three simple but important questions which we all ask because we fear the unknown. It's one of the reasons why we persecute each other, we seek out differences and use these trivial matters to create enemies, as irrelevant and ..." Read review

It's Life Jim But Not As We Know It

AdvantagesLife goes on (just not as we know it now)

DisadvantagesYou might go somewhere you dont want to go

"...that after we die, we do have an afterlife, but not as some others may believe. But to me that is personal choice, which we as humans all have free will to choose to believe what we want to. The Christian Church (be it catholic or protestant) tells us that when we die we are judged on our actions and either admitted to heaven or sent to hell. Some people may choose to believe that but personally i do not. I believe in karma - you reap what you ..." Read review

This Life

AdvantagesIt's a comforting thought

DisadvantagesIt's a misleading one

"Do you believe in life after death? Define life. In the sense that most people reading this will imagine it, the answer is no. There is no life after death. We do not have an immortal soul that will live on either in this body or another, on this plane or another, in heaven or purgatory or hell. When you die, you are as dead as a bank-whacked fish or an uprooted cabbage. Dead. Food for the planet. End of story…. ….ah, well, that’s ..." Read review

Beliefs are good. But it's not spirituality

AdvantagesYou may agree

DisadvantagesSceptical

"...what humanity has attempted to do when answering the question of whether there is life after death. Those who may contest my opinions by stating that they have experienced paranormal activity or had various spiritual encounters that cannot be accounted for by a deep knowledge of ourselves. To you I offer this rather vague and unfulfilling answer: there are things that we have not yet discovered about the physical Universe or indeed our own minds. ..." Read review

The Final Frontier

AdvantagesSomething to believe in

DisadvantagesThat we do not know.

"...am a lot older and do not believe unquestioningly as a child does. I question a lot of things. There are times that I want to believe. And there are others when I cannot believe. I have never received any massages from "The Other Side" verbally or otherwise, that I know are messages. I will let you decide if you want to. Let me recount some experiences that I have personally had. First, in my much younger days I lived in Kent. I had some ..." Read review
