PROVE that when the brain dies we die, prove it or stop talking like it is a fact. Thanks...
I have already reasoned why this is the case, clearly though you are not interested in my posts, but are only concerned with defending your beliefs and no amount of reason, logic or common sense will convince you otherwise.
The biggest hurdle in questioning and reasoning is fear. You have a set of beliefs. Beliefs about heaven, hell, soul etc. If you will question your beliefs then you will have to let your beliefs go. As an example if I say that there is no such thing as heaven and hell. They are just imaginations to avoid the fear of death. If you question your belief about heaven and hell then you are making yourself insecure. You may be afraid that you do not know where you will go after your death.
The only existence we know of is this current physical existence. Our brain interprets signals from the senses and these interpretations are stored in our brain as memories. Life is this sequence of perceptions from the birth of the body to the death of the body. If we reset our memory somehow, maybe we suffer a total amnesia, then this self we identify with today would cease to exist. I can't prove that there is no existence after death, but I can make a hypothesis based on reasoning that when the brain dies we too will die (because brain and "I" are really the same thing).
