|Subject: The Finality of Death|
|It is stated that: ‘In the end we can never escape the fact that we do continue to live after this one earth-life. Death is only a transition to be made and is not an end in itself.‘|
However, this ‘fact‘ has yet to be established to any degree of certainty, in spite of all that has been said and written about the near-death experience phenomenon.
One interesting fact that has been uncovered as a result of research into the NDE has been the very low percentage (between 10 and 18) of those who came close to dying having reported any experiences whatsoever whilst they were ‘dead‘. Why such a low percentage? Does this not indicate that, all else being considered, the various reports attributed to those who have returned from being close to death are attributable to something else entirely?
If death is not an ‘end in itself‘ and is merely a ‘transition‘, what, exactly, is it a transition to? Where does the concept of reincarnation fit into this, if at all?
The central problem with belief in an afterlife is that it raises far more (unanswerable, as it turns out) questions than it answers.
