AFTERLIFE – WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE

 

I believe human beings are the only animals on earth who know they will someday die. This awareness caused our ancestor to ask “Where are we?” “Why are we here?” “Where did we come from?” “What happens to our beings when we die?.” In searching for answers, most of our species embraces the idea that we are children of single invisible power we call God who created us and directs the course of human lives.

During the nineteenth century Charles Darwin and other scientists discovered the evolutionary processes which had previously been invisible to humanity and are now scientifically understood. Ongoing debate exists between Religious Creationists and Evolutionists about how and when humanity was created. Creationists insist that their God created Earth and all life upon it in seven days and nights about seven thousand years ago

Most Scientists and evolutionary thinkers concluded that our Planet and all of life thereon was created by the Universe over billions of years through Evolution and that every living thing on Earth, including human life, is but a generational link in the chain of life, passing on its genetic history from each generation to the next and transforming in death from organic energy to bits of organic matter that is totally devoid of consciousness.

While living, I choose to see myself returning to the Universe in which I was born and unconsciously traveling at peace with the never ending winds of time.  *** What do you think?

 

Ferguson, Race, and Justice

Ferguson, Race, and Justice

by Chris Kaman

The killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, is not just a tragedy for his family, his town, and the state but it is a wake up call to everyone who claims to care about racial equality, and justice.  Blacks know particularly well that this tragedy is not isolated, but is symptomatic of a nationwide problem that cries out for solutions.   The Ethical Humanist Society of the Triangle is a member organization of the American Ethical Union.  On September 5th, the AEU issued the following statement.  I have included it here to draw attention to the excellent statement, and to let our members, friends and visitors know that ethical humanism is concerned with this issue.  We are not silent, and we do not consent to this brutality and injustice.  The AEU statement follows…

When You Die

When you come to care what happens when you die, it is  very good to know there is no afterlife. You are the one responsible for the life that you have lived and no unseen super power is the master  of your life. You alone have the power to forgive yourself for the imperfect things that you have done before you pass away. You have the power to remember the good things you have done for others and yourself. You can appreciate the beauty of life and the finality of death.
