Is Death An Illusion? Evidence Suggests Death Isn’t the End.

Ol' wack-a-doodle Lanza. He's an MD - he's not a scientist.

Not true. He publishes in the prestigious heavily peer reviewed journals Cell and Nature. I would say he's a research scientist - he's not an MD. Likely never even treated a patient outside of med school and residency. ... Don't mean he ain't wack-a-doodle though. Just means he's harder to do dismiss than our typical resident wack-a-doodle idiots here. Tongue

He lives not too far away from me. Consider

Dawkins obviously has this problem

Does Billy Graham or Joel Osteen ring a bell? How about Ken Ham or Kent Hovind?

What an idiotic response.

RE: The atheist afterlife?
Perhaps as one leaves Hitchens' metaphorical party, knowing it will go on without you, it helps to think someone might be singing your song well into the morning.

For me I do have a drive to share the knowledge I have gained in my lifetime. I want the price I have paid for the knowledge I have gained to pay off beyond my own death. Looking at it solely from the standpoint of efficiency it makes sense for the investment a society has made in one individual to pay off beyond that individual's lifetime. I still have a few things I would like to pay back to society, a few ideas I would like to reinvest.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
