What is the Afterlife?

The afterlife teaches us that life exists after death. Spiritual beliefs often teach us that we have a soul that lives on after we die.  Atheists often believe that this is false since the dead don’t speak and we can’t prove that life exists after we die.  If this is the case, then why do billions of people all over the world try to become or be a better person to prepare themselves for their next life?

Life after death is not a new age concept. In fact, afterlife theory has been around since the beginning of time.  Mankind has always been fascinated with the stars, planets and moon.  When you look up at the sky and see nature, most people say, “Someone must have created all of this. How can it be possible that its all one “big bang”?

Is There Any Scientific Proof of Heaven?

Nobody can prove that heaven exists. However, mainstream religions like Christianity, Judaism and Islam all say that it does. Most of what we know about heaven comes from ancient textbooks and prophets.  If you read the Holy Bible, you will often read stories from prophets and those that say miracles came from God in heaven. 

What we know about heaven came from another person that told us that there is a heaven.  When Jesus came to heaven, he did not give us a video of what heaven looks like. Instead, he showed us love and said that when we die, we could go to heaven if we believe in him. If we accept Jesus Christ as the Lord and savior, we will go to heaven. 

The reason why most people want to go to heaven is because it said to have no pain or sorrow. It’s a place where you can stay for all eternity and see that there is no reason for suffering any longer.

Different faiths teach heaven differently.  Some faiths believe that only their own people that believe in their religion will enter heaven. In Judaism, it is said that the Jews will only enter heaven. Those that are not Jews will go to a place called hell.  In Islam it is the same. It teaches that all those that believe in Allah will go to heaven.  Those that are not believers in Allah will go to hell.

Science has not been able to prove if there is a heaven or hell. It doesn’t mean that they never will. After all, they weren’t always able to prove that the earth was round.  It was once believed that the earth was flat.  Scientists are still trying to figure out if life exists on other planets as well. 

Some people like Annabel Beam claimed that she saw heaven after she fell from a tree.  Annabel is not alone.  There are thousands of accounts of people claiming that they have been to heaven after dying and coming back to life.  Others say that they were having an out of body experience and seeing themselves laying on an operating table and then going to heaven afterwards. 

You can either believe these stories or write them off as fiction.  However, some of the afterlife stories are so chilling and detailed that it leaves you wondering if life does exist after we die. 

Artists like Leonardo Davinci gives us a glimpse of proof of afterlife through their artwork.  One can only fantasize what life would be like if there were such a place as heaven.

As you can see, there is currently no proof of life after death that exists. Only people’s stories and words from people that claim there is one. 

Can Worship Give You a Glimpse of Heaven?

Many people that sing songs to their God claim that they can feel him.  They claim that they feel and sense the presence of God and know that heaven is real.  Even though you can’t physically see a heaven, you certainly can sense that a heavenly place must exist because of the peace that you feel when you are in that moment. 

What Do Buddhists and Hindus Believe?

Buddhists and Hindus believe that we pay for what we have done in this life in the afterlife. They also believe that the soul is reincarnated into another dimension when we die.  It teaches that if you are a good person, you will come back again and someone that has a good life.  Eventually, if you do this enough, you will go to a permanent place of rest. Some people see this as heaven and others see it as simply nirvana. 

Buddhists believe in the power of meditation.  When you meditate, you begin to feel internal peace when you reach higher levels of thinking about nothing. The idea is to put yourself into a sleep like state forever and feel nothing but peace.  This is harder to do than most people realize.

It is said that once the body dies, the soul lives on.  In Hinduism, it is believed that you can speak to the souls of those that have died and when you die, they welcome you and help you ascend to the new world.  You also come back if you need to.  When you come back, you will come back according to what you deserve. If you lived a life doing bad things, you may come back as ant or a dog. 

What Is the Egyptian Afterlife?

If you lived in ancient Egypt, you would have seen life on earth as a small part of your full existence. Ancient Egyptians believed that your life would continue after you died.  It was believed that if you lived a good life, you would enter a place called The Field of Reeds.  This was the Egyptian thought of heaven. It was believed that the Gods would put you there if you deserved to be there. It was a place where you would feel nothing but peace.

Egyptians believed that the soul was trapped in the body.  It would not be free again until it left the body and went back into the spirit world.  Once in the spirit world, it could go on to a heavenly place.

God and the Afterlife

In almost every spiritual belief, it is believed that an entity decides as to what happens to your soul when it dies. You go through a period of judgement and a God will make the decision on what happens to you. Whether you to go heaven or hell or back to earth is all up to the God in which you believe in. 

Atheists don’t believe in a God and therefore say that when their body dies, they are just gone. They have no soul and go nowhere.  The famous scientist David Goodall did assisted suicide at the age of 104. He said that he accepted that there was no life after death and that he preferred assisted suicide to end his life because he felt that he woke up everyday to suffering. 

For some, the afterlife is nothing but a state of nonexistence.  For others, it’s a way to enter complete peace after a life of long-term suffering. 

The life after death debate has been going on for centuries now between theologians and scientists.  Theologians argue that believing in heaven and hell are by faith.  It cannot be proven through science. 

Will Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) Change the Way that We View the Afterlife?

In the 20th century, recording devices such as tape recorders, video cameras and television sets began picking up voices where nobody else was present.  People started to realize that you could hear voices with recording devices, and it became a worldwide phenomenon.  The voices that were being picked up by EVP were the sounds of human voices.  They were and still are words and phrases that human is saying. 

These voices are often responding to questions that someone would ask them.  The voices are in different languages and often the dead. 

If you are wondering how an EVP works, here is some information.  Take a digital tape recorder and visit a cemetery that is known to have hauntings.  This means that the cemetery is active with living spirits that want to speak to the living.  These spirits are often poltergeist in nature and sometimes spirits that speak actively into recording devices. Visit a gravestone and place your recording device on top of the headstone.

Ask the person that to please speak into the tape recorder so that you can talk with them. You won’t be able to hear their responses.  However, when you play back the recording, you will often pick up a voice or white noise that you can hear.  You will be able to see that the spirits are trying to speak to you.  The spirit may say a simple “hello” or “I am here”.  They will often respond to your questions. If you say, “Did you die in a car accident?”  If the person did, they may respond, “Yes, I died in a car accident” or a simple “Yes”. 

EVP’s are proof that life does exist beyond this physical world. The air has living spirits in it that we cannot see or hear with our own ears.  However, recording devices are picking up these voices.  Amazingly, this could not have happened before the 21st century.  We are the first century in the history of mankind that can talk to spirits through a recording device.

It appears we can prove the existence of the afterlife after all.  We can hear that actual human beings are trying to communicate with us.  These beings are coming from a spirit world that we cannot see.  Are they speaking to us from heaven, hell and in between world? We don’t know.  I do believe that in time, future generations will research this and figure out what happens to a person after they die. 

Science has recently proven that brain activity is still present 2 hours after a person’s heart stops being and they are declared clinically dead. However, it has not been proven that brain activity is still present after 2 hours.  Researchers are continuing with their experiment to see how much longer after a person dies, their brain is still active. These kinds of research experiments are being conducted in both the United States and Canada.

Even the project CERN in Europe has developed the world’s most powerful computer.  This computer is trying to find out who God is and if actual spirits exist that we cannot see.  CERN was able to capture some images of spirits in some of their experiments.  Shockingly, this was not an experiment about spirits. It was more of an experiment and study of matter and the God particle.  However, it is now being looked at deeply because in many of the computerized images, they are finding actual human spirits appearing out of the air.

We are living in amazing times. Times in which the world will soon see that heaven is real and so is hell. We will begin speaking to spirits once they have died through advanced recording equipment. 

The questions about the afterlife are soon not going to have questions because we will know 100% that life does exist beyond earth. When we died, our body may go to six feet under, but our spirt is still alive. Also, what makes us “us” will survive as well.  It’s going to happen when we least expect.

It is thanks to the billions of people that lived and died on earth that worshipped God.  They were the first to say that life does exist beyond this world. Jesus Christ said that there was a heaven and many modern-day religions and spiritual faiths do teach that there is a heaven and hell.  Many other faiths such as Hinduism and Buddhism teach about reincarnation of the soul.  It is hard to say exactly who is right and wrong.  However, its up to you to do your own research with modern day technology.
