Someone asked, ":Do you believe in life after death?" What do I think?
By the very definition "death" is the end of life, so no, if one does die, there cannot be life. That, is death!
But the bible says thou shall not perish but have everlasting life. But in what form? One thing seems certain, which is the brain and our thoughts, imagination, feelings and memories won't continue to exist when the brain dies.
That spark of life will be there perhaps in one form or another. I say spark of life as being of the soul as perhaps the soul is not completely understood.
Will we be able to experience life as we understood it again? That's the real question I think most people ask.
I do not know. It seems to be beyond the understanding of the human mind to comprehend life without the mind. Think about that, How can we experience what our mind experiences, without the mind How can the mind comprehend what life would be like if it, “the mind” doesn't' exist. It's impossible to understand. But it doesn't mean we won't have a soul or a life, it's just meant it is now impossible to understand using our own mind.
This is why we have faith. Because we have no choice but to.
But if we were to cease to exist, as in death, at any point, and no longer continue in any form or shape, then what would be the point of existing in the first place?
So, I don't believe in life after death, but I do believe in life after life.
