You’re emotions and consciousness are chemical processes within the brain. When you die, you’re brain ceases to function and rots away. Good bye consciousness. So, unless some god keeps a carbon copy of you’re emotions to activate upon you’re death, you’re gone. Why is this so hard to understand? And if god does have an afterlife, why not just have us there in the first place? We don’t really learn anything here about the afterlife, or how to live in it.
