How can there be an afterlife?
Many people say there is and isn't an afterlife. I don't know what to believe. It seems like smarter people believe there is no afterlife. For instance Stephen Hawking. Someone asked him "why do people want there to be an afterlife?" and his answer was "because they are afraid of the dark." I don't see how our conscious minds can go past this state that we are living in, if it is at all possible. What are your thoughts?
