Why is it so hard for people to accept the reality that after we die, it's truly the end of our life and our conscience does not continue on?

    Because no one really knows for sure. Any one who says they know what happens after we die is lying. We can believe what ever we want, but we won't know until it happens.

      Blue, Saying you know the answer to an un-answerable question is lying. Believing is not the same as knowing.

    What assumption lead you to that conclusion? A seed must die to become a tree. The water coming out of your taps has been here since the beginning.

    Most people don’t remember anything about their first few years of life. If you think there is no afterlife because you claim you cannot remember anything before you were born, does that mean you didn’t exist when you were a toddler? 

    You are your own worst deceiver. Missing out on the very reason God made you because you love your sin so you suppress the truth. How will you escape being condemned to hell?

    don't be mad if they disagree with your beliefs. because there's no certainty that what you are saying is correct.

    I think you meant to say consciousness.

    Because there is no evidence to support that fantasy, pard, and many of us experience God for ourselves every year.

    • Thumbs UP for trying. However: For centuries, millions of people in Greece saw the tides move, every day. This EXPERIENCE was  perceived as PROOF that the God Poseidon DOES exist. Since the water did not EVOLVE the ability to flow uphill against the slope of the shore, do YOU believe in Poseidon?

      Decomposition means that the substance of a corpse becomes incorporated into other organisms post mortem, so it does live on.

    Because God has stated otherwise, and people seem to place more faith in God than in you.

    No.  It's hard for you to accept the reality that there's life after death.

      e9601, this is a circular argument. You believe God exists, so you believe what the Bible says. But those of us who don't believe in God don't believe that what God is supposed to have said can have any meaning for us.

    Most likely it is a built in mental defense mechanism, that allowed early humans to take greater risks for greater rewards.
