Do you believe in a continuation of CONSCIOUSNESS after death?

In consciousness I refer to our memory, our thoughts, our aspirations, etc. Modern neuroscience (I believe) has proven our consciousness to be a by product of the organizational strata of atoms in our brain, and we can observe changes in attitude and behavior from physical objects that affect us in the modern day world. Drugs, alcohol, a sharp rap to the head — all of these can change our perseptions and the perceptions of others once they are allowed to observe us in our new states.
We can pretty conclusive decide that our memory has meaning only in and of ourselves and the physical make-up of our brains, or else spells of amnesia and the like would not be triggered by physical processes
I cannot PROVE to you that consciousness is the by-product of our brains, but I can tell you to read up on biology and neuroscience and continue your learning in order to make conclusions of your own…
My question… (my) defining death as the reordering of our physical bodies, does any sort of c
onscious remainedr persist in your view after the parts that make up our being are gone?
I ask this because I often see Christian’s refer to their SUPREME happiness in the afterlife resulting from a loss of memory (of their loved ones, marriages and the like), there loss of desire (when one can desire no more) and their loss of self as a whole.

Obviously not, and you seem to understand that.
Look at one person in a coma, and any rational person will realize that without brain activity, there is no consciousness. It can’t survive death because the brain doesn’t survive death.


i am thinking of the soul………………………the soul continues the brain is just another part of the body

yes, the only thing that we can actually take with us to the after life is our knowlege. That is a wonderful question.


consciousness is the activity of the brain
no brain=no consciousness
death is real…we dont live forever 🙁


Jesus answered this question in Luke 16:19-31.
Yes, after we die, we will still remember everything about our life on earth.

I do believe in a continuation of consciousness after death. In fact, I believe though I have no way to prove it, that we are actually MORE conscious after death remembering ALL of our lives and the work that our soul is doing to evolve. I don’t believe we are relieved of our experiences iafter death for we do a review and make a conscious decision as to what our next experiences will be. Sadly, I think alot of the ideas behind the”rapture” or whatever they are calling it now has to do with their deep seeded need to escape reality, to believe there is some reward for dealing with life’s difficulties.


“For the living know that they will die,
but the dead know nothing;
they have no further reward,
and even the memory of them is forgotten”.
“Their love, their hate
and their jealousy have long since vanished;
never again will they have a part
in anything that happens under the sun” Ecclesiastes 9:5-6
But we will have a new life with those we loved and knew, in paradise. Not as ghosts, angels, or spirits, but as perfect physical people as was intended for us and Adam and Eve.
God bless


 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten. (Ecclesiastes 9:5)
