    Dying is like going to sleep. Except we don’t wake up, ever.

    I had that experience several times, with major head traumas that rendered me unconscious. One moment I was conscious, the next moment, nothing. No dreams, no thoughts, just black nothingness. That’s how I imagine death will be.

    No fantasy afterlife, no going to Heaven (or Hell), no going or existing anywhere.

    The good thing is I won’t have to worry about the afterwards. Nor about what people say about me, good or bad. I suppose I could worry about it now, and plan ahead, but after it happens I’m never gonna know.

    For reference, read Gore Vidal’s novel “Messiah”. Might give you a different perspective. About dying, and not wanting to die.

    Which doesn’t answer the question of this thread.

    What do YOU think will happen when you die? A direct answer from you would be refreshing, rather than an evasion.

    People who think that humans are mere "flesh & blood" are absolutely deluded.
    We also have a spiritual side or a soul. If we didn't, we wouldn't be able to feel emotions such as love, hate, or any of 1000 other invisible emotions.
    And, just like your physical body grows stronger the more you work out and exercise it, so does your soul.
    But most of the world these days have forgotten they have one.
    I read your story, and I have literally hundreds of other miraculous personal examples which would make your head spin, as in TOTAL contradiction of you claiming "Nothingness". I have been pronounced dead twice in my life, once for 2 minues and another for 10 whole minutes, and I have also had many OBE's (Out of body experiences - and I KNOW there is WAY more out there than the human mind can possiblty fathom.
    I don't think, I KNOW that when I die, my body might lie in the ground until it decays away, but it is my KNOWLEDGE - not belief - that my soul, which I try to maintain with a healthy relationship of my Creator and His Word will live on in another plain known as Heaven.
    And not the "Heaven" which people have convinced us to believe in all our lives, but a place which is absolutely real.
    Just because you cannot see something, does not mean that it is not there.
    You can't see air - yet you breathe it in and it is vital for your survival.
    That's how I personally feel about my spirit.
    I plan on spending eternity with Jesus Christ and everything that is promised me in His word.
    And your opinions of that are meaningless to me.
    For as the Good Book says: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."

    Brian, your spiritual side rocks.
    My response is different from yours and is not meant to contradict yours or compete with it.

    In general what happens is that those who have accepted the free gift of pardon purchased by Jesus Christ, go to Heaven, the rest presumably go to Hell. The details of when and how this happens are debated.

    Many people have had a near-death-experience (NDE) in which they visited Heaven or Hell and returned. It makes perfect sense that a loving God would make such visits happen. God does not want anyone to go to Hell.

    Many of those who had an NDE, and visited Heaven or Hell, wrote books about their experience. Mary C. Neal, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon, was clinically dead for about a half hour after having been trapped for about thirty minutes under a waterfall in South America. It was a kayaking accident.

    She visited Heaven and wrote her best-selling book “To Heaven and Back.“



    She then wrote a follow-up book “7 Lessons from Heaven,“ in which she lists the common elements in the account by the many people who have had an NDE and who have visited Heaven:

    1. A Deep Sense of Well-Being Infused with Pure Love.
    2. Separation of Body and Spirit.
    3. No Fear of Death.
    4. A Life Review.
    5. “More Real Than Real.”
    6. Unusual Knowledge or Foresight.
    7. Reunion with Friends and Relatives.
    8. A Point of No Return.
    9. A Certainty of Significance.
    10. Perfect Playback.

    “7 Lessons from Heaven” is subtitled “How Dying Taught Me to Live a Joy-Filled Life.”



    Inerrantly fulfilled prophecy makes the Bible the only self-authenticating book ever written. The Bible clearly states that there is life after death.

    The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the best forensically validated events of ancient times. Without the Resurrection there is no Christianity. The Jewish establishment and Roman authorities had every incentive to simply produce the body of Jesus. They did not and could not.
