An Atheist Explains What Happens When You Die. Do You Agree?
Death is the greatest mystery of existence. What happens after death? is a complex question having several facets. The atheists and theists disagree on what is on the other side of the veil that separates life and death.
‘Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.’ – Ecclesiastes 12:7
The Bible describes heaven, the abode of God, as a place where the streets are paved with gold, a world without suffering, or being better than anything we can imagine here on earth.
It proclaims, ‘O, seeker of Truth! Consider, this human form subject to mortality. The Divine God is only immortal! Rise above the worldly pleasures, the approval or disapproval of others. Clean the abode of God, your body, from all temptations, evils, and sins. Sing the Glories of the Lord!’
Our only way back to God and Heaven is to be reconnected to God by being God centred and in obedience to God’s Word and be ‘saved’ from the depths of hell! So, Love God more and fear death less. It will make our life on earth more meaningful and the future more hopeful.
Face The Truth say the Atheists
Atheists refuse to believe in the authenticity of Bible’s claim that heaven is real and enunciate, ‘It is better to know the Truth even in the face of death.’
They proclaim that everything about religion is imaginary. God, the Bible, Jesus, the resurrection, prayer, the Ten Commandments, the creation story, Santa Claus, soul, everlasting life, heaven… every bit of it is the product of human imagination.
Science is the saviour of Humanity and not Religion as it promises to be. There is no life after death. The concept of ‘life’ is a human invention. The ‘miracle of life’ is no miracle. It is a big chemical reaction. When these reactions stop, the cell is dead. Clearly there is no afterlife for a bacterium, a mosquito, a mouse, a dog a chimp and even man too.
Atheists vehemently challenge and oppose the notion that humankind of all living forms has a unique supernatural ‘soul’ which survives death and carries the essential characteristics of the person to a supernatural existence in a super natural realm. The whole notion of ‘soul’ is completely imaginary, invented by religion and is a complete fabrication.
They question Church’s proclaimed route to Paradise through infant christening, confirmation, frequent mass attendances and the final rites and their claims that donations and prayers are desirable adjuncts guarding against a period in purgatory.
‘That I Am Alive’ is a religious belief. When your brain stops functioning, you die. When the body dies the conscious mind, being dependant on the brain, also ceases to exist. Death is the natural end to every human life.
When you die, you cease to be. You are as non-existent as before your birth. Your memories may linger on for a while and gradually all traces of you will be gone and forgotten forever.
Atheists cite the scientific evidence which nullifies the ‘soul’ concept.
The Map of the Afterlife.
Majority of Atheists overlook the fact that physical death and decay can never be cited as proof of the non-existence of the human soul and its link with God. Our Spirit is a direct fragment of the Divine Life of God.
Human beings have a self-awareness which not only enables us to know ‘what’ we are doing, but that it is ‘we’ who are doing it. This self-awareness is crucial to our sense of identity.
This world composed of physical matter is just one of the several planes of material things representing different frequencies of consciousness. All solid objects, liquid and vaporous things are composed of the five elements namely earth, water, fire, air, and space are actually made of invisible vibrations. Vaporous things have a fine vibration, on a higher plane. There are also different spiritual astral planes that vibrate at a higher frequency than the material world. Unfortunately the pious Catholics hold that the only spirit was the Holy One that lived in heaven.
Compelling Evidence Of After Life
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are in fact, spiritual beings having a human existence.
Of all the God’s creatures that dwell on the earth, only man has been gifted with several Godly attributes like the capacity to love, to hate, to laugh, to cry, to forgive, to repent, and to experience every type of emotion.
Death Is A Transformation.
Death is a brief stopping point on an endless soul journey with the possibility of infinite lifetimes extending forward and backward. A soul can possibly experience many heavens and hells. Death ends nothing. Actually it opened up limitless possibilities. Science talks of evaporation, condensation and precipitation. A drop of water becomes invisible vapour which materialize as clouds that shower rain forming rivers and eventually merge into the sea. Did the drop of water die? No, it is very much alive undergoing a new expression at each stage. Likewise, limiting our identity to this present physical body is an illusion from which we must wake up.
A Modern Perspective
It is most strange that man should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.
By blending science and wisdom the secular atheists, the proponents of humanism build their case for an afterlife in which our most essential self, the seer that observes our experiences in this temporary home that we call the self or ‘I’, uses death to pass over into the next. There is a part of our ‘self’ that never dies. When a person dies, his or her conscious thoughts cease, and the body returns to dust. The soul, however returns enters a realm of pure consciousness.
Cycle of Karma
The software of the soul are Karma, memory and desire. Karma is the mechanics through which our consciousness manifests. Karma is collective experience. Every experience creates a memory. It is memory that creates desire and imagination, which create Karma all over again.
This cycle is a conditioned response. Karma, thus limits our creativity. When our awareness of our true self increases, we are no longer a silent witness of the Karma cycle. We now manifest a different reality as we are now the co-creators of our life. In collaboration with God, we have the power to design our own destiny.
Once we know our true self, the eternal core consciousness, we are in touch with that eternal part of ourselves, then we lose the fear of death, because each stage of consciousness creates its own reality. In reality, it is the unique spiritual dimension that makes us human. More creativity means more compassion, understanding, love and less conflict. “A penetrating and insightful investigation into the greatest mystery of existence. This is an important book because only by facing death will we come to a deeper realization of who we are.”
—Eckhart Tolle, author of A New Earth and The Power of Now
“If I had any doubts about the afterlife, I don’t have them anymore. Deepak Chopra has cast his inimitable light on the darkened corners of death. I think this is his greatest contribution yet.”
—Marianne Williamson, author of The Age of Miracles and The Gift of Change
Our present expanded higher states of awareness allows us to go beyond to create something else. Even our karmic debt can be paid, transmuted and can be transcended.
They thus hold that instead of wasting our time in the worship of an imaginary god or preparing for a non-existent everlasting life in some mythical supernatural realm of eternal bliss; by discarding the notion of the everlasting soul and by accepting that life is only for a finite period, long or short, we now must think of how best to spend the available time worthy of a human person.
Modern advocates today want us to re-evaluate, rethink our closed ideas and beliefs and open up to the truth of our being part of Cosmic divine consciousness and that we are in essence immortal beings. The ambassadors of Humanity teach us to live this lifetime in surrender, to develop the basic virtues like sincerity, gratitude, love, compassion and sacrifice in our preparation for our eternal destiny of infinite fascination.
Even after death we are ‘Here and Everywhere’SEE LESS
It is a strange myth that atheists have nothing to live for. It is the opposite. We have nothing to die for. We have everything to live for.
