Let’s suppose there is an afterlife. I don’t believe there is one, but let’s just suppose there is. Why do most people automatically assume this means something? What if we die and and are reborn into a world that is just as confusing and meaningless and trivial as this one? What if we are reborn into an afterlife that brings us no closer to knowing the ultimate mysteries than we know now? The existence of an afterlife doesn’t necessary entail the existence of god or gods. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything except that there is something about physics that requires sapience to be transferred into this new existence. Is that just natural law or did the powers that be write things that way?
Just something to think about.
