Belief and knowledge are two totally different concepts.

That's both adorable and a little frightening for someone who's turning 18 shortly!

Thereís no afterlife and thereís no maybe about it. Itís more certain than 2+2=4.

I don't want to live past 27. But that's me I can understand why people would want to live longer. I think having kids doesn't give you a false sense of purpose. I don't think any of us get to choose what another's purpose is like that, I think the individual chooses their own personal purpose and if their kids provide them with a purpose how is that false? In the grand scheme everything is really pointless, but the only reason we really strive to exist is out of love and happiness, that is the only purpose I can see and your children will provide you with love and happiness. Those that have love and happiness, which could come from friends, family, pets, art, lovers, etc. are the ones that want to live. Not all of us seem to have that. With out love and happiness life is so pointless, and at that point there really is no reason to exist.

What about DMT? One could argue that the possible extreme hallucinations caused by that chemical release at death could be some form of an afterlife. At this point, it's arrogant for any living being to act like they completely understand what death is. I mean, an eternity in physical realities known as heaven or hell or purgatory is definitely not true.

You say some arrogant things, my friend, but this surpasses them all. How can you possibly know that for 100%? You don't; nobody does. It's ridiculous to say you do. You may BELIEVE there is no afterlife, but that is not the same as saying that you categorically KNOW there is none. For that you need to have solid, empirical, undeniable proof, and there is no such thing.

Same goes for you. There is nothing you can say DEFINITELY about the afterlife. For all you know, we could be living in the Matrix, or you could die and say "Is this the afterlife?" to which crowds of Higher Beings will chorus "Afterlife? You've been living it, mate!"

Why not? Also why 27 and not 28 or 32?

Are you 27 now?
