What do you believe about life after death? Is it just a myth for you, or do you actually believe that the grave is not the end? Most people grow up in societies where their introduction into a religion happens as soon as they are born, and the chances of such people holding onto their faith and beliefs to the day they die are very high.
The social influence, coupled with today's media and peer pressure, play a huge role in shaping what we believe, as well as questioning what we believe. That all makes it very difficult for people to think about life after death objectively, as opposed to leaning on what they have known was true from as far back as they can remember.
People who only know what their religion says about life after death find what other people believe to be absurd and, to some extent, funny and impractical, but is there a way of proving which religion is right and which is wrong?
People who embrace science to the extent that they stop believing in religion and life after death, because they find no evidence and cannot find any form of measurement for it, tend to dismiss all religions as a whole.
However, should we expect that matters concerning life after death be measurable in a laboratory or in the field, like other things on this side of life? Wouldn't trying to conduct that experiment be like trying to measure the speed of the wind or the flammability of some materials when you are under water? It would not make sense.

Almost one in every three people in the world is a Christian, a religion that is far more prevalent than any other is on the planet. As such, most people are familiar with what Christians believe, especially with regard to life after death. Christians believe that, if an individual is born again, when he or she dies, he or she will enter an eternal rest called heaven - a place where there will never be any pain, crying or mourning. Being born again is simply a confession of Jesus Christ's lordship over one's life and a belief in Christ's crucifixion, death, and resurrection. However, according to the Book of Revelation, people who refuse to be born again end up in a lake burning with fire and brimstone, as an eternal punishment for their rebellion towards God.
