It’s so weird you would ask me that. My brother just passed away, so it’s very interesting. I don’t know. I have no idea. I would like to think so, but.... I think so — right now. If you see me in, like, five minutes, come around and ask me the same question — I could say no.

Yes. There’s a big man with a gray beard and hundreds of virgins. I’m kidding. There’s an existence after death. What that entails, I have no idea. But there’s something. I think about it, but I don’t dwell on it. I’ll worry about it when that day comes. Hopefully, it’s not for awhile.

I think so. I have no idea what it is, but I think there is. There’s some kind of something. I’m always watching those ghost shows. We used to have a lot of weird things at our grandma’s house — like. you’d always hear people going up and down the stairs. There’s something on there, beyond, that we’re not seeing. I have no idea what it is, but there’s gotta be. It’s much more comforting to think that, anyway, over the alternative.

Is there life after death? I wouldn’t know. I guess we’ll all find out.

Certainly, unless you happen to get caught up in a situation where all of existence gets demolished at the exact same time you get your own ticket punched. Otherwise, you die, other people live, pretty simple to see that, it happens every day. If the question concerns what becomes of our "soul" or "spirit" or whatever one wishes to call it after our bodies cease to show signs of life, it's above my pay grade. Couldn't even offer a guess. In other words, none of us knew we would be born before we were born. So then, how can anyone know what will happen with us when we are dead?

If there is life after death, then it must mean that we are reborn, into another dimension, as another being, another form, what ever it may be. If that's the case, then for there to be life after death, then there must also be another life before birth.
