I was just thinking about whether it’s possible for anyone to really know what happens after we die and this is my personal conclusion:
1) I think the people who say they don’t know, really don’t.
2) I think the majority of people who say they do know, actually don’t. They just believe they know. Really, really hard.
And 3) I think there are probably a few people out there who really do know. I don’t know how they know it, but I still think they do.
However, 4) Their knowledge will never be of any use to me since there’s no way I can ever, with rigorous certainty, distinguish them from the majority of people who believe they know, but really don’t.
At first glance that seems like a bummer. But is it?
Nope. I don’t think so. It doesn’t feel like it anyway. In fact, I’m a little relieved. I don’t want anyone telling me what will happen when I die because then it wouldn’t be a surprise and, to be honest, I’m kind of looking forward to the adventure aspect of the whole thing.
