If you buy a motor car, and it stays with you, as part of your family, until it finally falls apart and goes to the breakers yard; that too had a period of time over which it functioned, and then it ceased to function. Humans are no different to that.
Before anything, I would like to clarify that if I express my disagreement to something it's for the purpose of having a socratic animated discussion and not just for the pleasure of contradicting...
Analogy appreciated but to equate a human with a motor engine is not very logical.
A motor engine is inert, it doesn't replicate itself and it doesn't build itself spontaneously, it's build by a human to serve a function and then it could be recycled and rebuild again same as before if needed with exactly the same material if anyone would bother doing that. If same logic applies, then in a not so near future (or maybe a near one), humans would also be recycled and rebuilt, hence they would never die. But paradoxically if humans would never die, then maybe there would probably be no need to reproduce and hence we would never have existed.
Hi Francogrex....and WELCOME

I have a simple logistic question since I'm a newbie I have tried to insert a signature quotation (one that I like a lot from Pascal) to appear everytime I post a message but doesn't seem to work. Is there a trick to it. Thanks.
...People instinctively don't accept the idea of death, of not being here anymore, or going to nonexistance, a place where there are no thoughts, no emotions, no shapes, no sounds, no feelings, a place where there is no place! For that reason we created beliefs of an afterlife but logic and science are showing us more and more that it's nonesense (are they showing us really well. Some think that maybe one way of "beating" death is procreation. Although when you pass on your genes you don't pass on your consciousness, it dies with you. ...In all this my wonderings are still the same wondering of all humanity since it's birth: what's the meaning of all this? Why? What's the purpose? Is it all a haphazard thing without any purpose all occurred by chance and natural selections like some say? It's also frustrating that there is almost no serious research about this, but I'm supposing it's the ultimate question people want to answer and yet all our resources are going for infintely less important mundane things. I have more thoughts and ideas but I look forward to some feedback from you guys on this first.
All I can say is I am very very afraid to die, I don't want to just go back to nothing, i want there to be something after this.
If this is the last life, then it's unfair for the blind, the deaf, or for people with both, because it's as if they knew nothing, ever!!
Oh it's the Hero member, I can't possibly be correct under his authority.
So how did you experience the afterlife
Me a hero! that reminds me of the time i saved a group of college girls by giving them the kiss of life. Strange how they protested that they were only sunbathing. some people eh.
The universe evolved over time. Evolution is a term that can be applied to anything that changed over time with natural selection, trial and error, labor, etc.
