Afterlife ~ continuation of life or an existence which is believed to follow the death of the physical body.
Call it heaven or hell, nirvana, summerland, the netherworld or whatever else you might wish to call it or believe it to be. Studies have shown that over 50% of people believe in some sort of an afterlife. The concept of life after death is a complex one, and there are almost as many theories about what the afterlife is like as there are people who believe in one.
Some believe in the idea of heaven and hell or some other place that we go to after we die, others believe in reincarnation, and there are some who believe that nothing happens at all. The concept of an afterlife opens the debate as to whether or not ghosts exist as well.
More and more people are coming forward about experiences in which they have seen what many call a ghost, whether it is someone who they personally knew in life or not. There are numerous popular TV shows which set out to capture evidence of the existence that the soul goes on after the physical body is gone. Many people have also shared stories of near-death experiences which have left them convinced that there is more to life and death than meets the eye.
The whole idea of an afterlife centers around whether or not the soul continues to go on after death…regardless of where it might go. What do you think?
