Right now we don't know what happens after death. If we knew nothing happened after death, there would be no church.

Yes if we knew nothing happened after death, there wouldn't be churches.

Nah there would be, because "we" does not encompass the idiots of the world.

First the first time this bot actually may have come close to something I can almost agree with... if people weren't afraid of the obvious conclusion that death is final there probably would be less religion.

RE: Would the world change if we knew what happened after death?
We already know what happens after death. The answer is decay and recycle. That only changes the world in the sense that the more things change the more they remain the same.

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

RE: Would the world change if we knew what happened after death?
So, considering the hypothetical question somewhat seriously ...
Would the world change if we knew what happened after death?

I suppose it depends on what we might find out happens after death.

If it is as we strongly suspect and have much evidence for, the brain ceases function, consciousness stops, and then the body begins the disintegration of matter... nothing changes. This is what we deal with already.

If we somehow discover that the consciousness lingers for a period after death, I think it would not do so for any great length of time.
Thinking about it more, it would have no way to do so - there would be nothing to contain and transfer the electrical impulses in the way the brain does. Any randomly generated energy per se, would have no place to be received.

If anything at all, there might be a slight dissipation of residual electricity - something like a static discharge which is eventually absorbed into the atmosphere. If anything, this would not be a lingering thing and it would have to take place immediately after or even during the brain's complete shut down process.

So really, nothing would change - we might confirm more solidly, that which most of us are already aware.

Life and death are connected to each other by the same processes of order and disorder that everything is subject to.

Entropy.

If what happened after death according to religion is true, we would have MORE churches.

Ok so you're basically admitting not only do we not know for sure but also that churches and religion in general are also fucking bullshit, nice one dickwad. Drinking Beverage
