You beat me to the punch, I'd been thinking about starting a thread aimed at atheists asking what they think happens after death besides decomposition.
Anyways, I have had some recurring disturbing revolving scary(not scary as in gory) thoughts about creation and death and stuff, and I am scared of it, and I think about it, but I wouldn't say I do it as obsessively as you do.
The reason I do it I guess is cuz I'm afraid of death..........But while I was watching Saw a while ago, I think the way to get over this fear of death, to get over this obsession with what happens after death is by following Amanda's advice which was:
"The cure for death itself. The answer is immortality. By creating a legacy, by living a life worth remembering, you become immortal."
Us SA'ers don't exactly live life to it's fullest potential so we obsess with death because we're afraid to die having lived only a mediocre life.
Anyways, if you find any scientific explanations for what happens after death please post them here cuz I'm interested in that too. I don't believe in God, I don't believe in heaven, I don't believe in angels, but I do believe in psychics, in ghosts, maybe in reincarnation, I don't know, I havn't really done research in that.........
Also, there's something that sticks out in my mind that I've seen on some of the ghost specials or whatver I've seen on tv-See, I heard once that psychics or whatver can sense things when they're in a room because the body leaves behind electrical signals or electrical something long after they've left a a place......So I feel like after death, maybe we don't just decompose, maybe we become "energy" and that's what psychics sense as ghosts???? Maybe we live on another plane of existence, not some mystical heavenly plane, but a plane that can be explained scientifically.......Because like I said, I do believe in ghosts, yet I don't think that's connected to God or anything cuz I'm an atheist.
