There is no precise data as to how many people actually believe in afterlife since the assumption that all those who follow a religion have faith in life after death is improbable. Many people have doubts in their minds because there is no empirical evidence available as yet that may substantiate that belief. Those who follow religions outnumber those who don’t but very few people have unwavering faith and conviction that death is merely a pause in the journey and that life continues after death, that is the first group. The second group comprises those who have no faith in any religion and they don't buy the idea that their lives continue after their physical abodes perish. The third group has believers, the gang of the doubtful and they are many, without realizing the fact that they do not actually believe in the hereafter though they think they do. The first group believes in it, the second doesn’t and the third group has doubts in their minds. The first category followers need no guidance as their faith is solid. Those who don’t are not interested to find out if their belief is unfounded or otherwise but those who have doubts in their minds are the ones who need to be steered to light and the effort is mainly focused on them, though our intelligent friends with no faith can also refer to it if they like.

I have tried to explain the concept in my previous articles as well and will try to explain it a bit further here. You would have read that in order to be successful in life, keep the end in mind as that approach helps you maintain your focus and attain your goals by avoiding waste and by creating value. Let us follow the reverse engineering concept and expand it to grasp the very basics by answering these apparently simple questions;

  • What is a system?
  • What is an accident?
  • What is life? Does it end or it continues?
  • What is instinct and why do all species with the exception of than Homo sapiens behave in exactly the same manner in given situations?
  • What are physical laws and why they remain constant?
  • What are patterns and what do they signify?
  • How do we record sounds and capture images and what does that imply?
  • What is the universal language?
  • Why do some animals, or even humans smell danger?
  • What is evolution?
  • What is natural balance and why is it maintained?
  • Why is there impeccable order in the universe, no collision of planets?
  • Is there a bond among species and celestial bodies or they are independent?
  • How was the universe created?
  • Why was the universe created?
  • Why is there only one planet inhabited among countless others scattered in the universe?
  • What is time and does it end at some point?
  • Why are Homo sapiens so different from the other species of Nature?
  • If all that is there started from an accident then what is the end?
  • If all that is there was created on purpose then why and what is the end?

The answers to these questions require at least a few hundred pages to offer any possible explanation but let us summarize all this to try to present a plausible case to our friends with swaying beliefs.

A kitten separated from the other cats at birth always, I repeat, always acts in the exact same manner in given situations as a cat should behave, why.., because it has been coded accordingly, a program written for her kind and replicated over and over. What other explanation do you have?

You won’t believe if a person tells you that their company has a new system that controls almost everything, from their card swipe access management system to payroll and from coffee dispensing machines to data compilation in real time, and surprisingly it just emerged or evolved on its own. If you don’t believe that then why do you believe that the entire galactic system was created after an accident and species evolve on their own? Remember, accidents result in a jumble, chaos and decay whereas development results in order and growth. The accidents are unplanned and uncontrolled whereas development is always planned and controlled. Accidents happen due to lack of something and loss of control whereas development takes place because someone has an an objective, a clear plan and ensures controlled execution.

Physical laws do not change if you travel from one city to another or from one planet to another, or for that matter from one galaxy to another galaxy. Why is that? Don’t you think for a while that mere existence of physical laws denote that there is a force that has created those laws and is actively involved in ensuring that they are not violated? From a logical perspective you know it makes perfect sense. 

If Creator has created all this and he sees us in real time but we can’t see him then the question arises why. Why can’t we see him when we have all the senses and means available? Now imagine you create a program and the characters that you have created are infused with some degree of artificial intelligence and they believe they are real. They can think and act on their own, free will, manifesting the height of programming sophistication. In that case, will they be able to see you while you are right in front of them? The answer is that it will only be possible when the programmer will create a partition or will remove it enabling you to see him. In religious scriptures you read that your creator sees you all the time but you can’t see him. Does it make some sense now?

The programmer can make the characters perish in one simulation and can revive them in another. Is that something beyond comprehension or it appears to be a normal feat for the accomplished programmer? If we die, in other words the character’s role ends in this episode does then that mean the character perishes for good? No, in this context the journey continues. The Norton antivirus copy when destroyed by a single user can be replaced, simple logic. Why, because the program itself is saved elsewhere and can be reproduced when needed.

We have invented gadgets that help us record sounds and capture images that we can retrieve and play anytime then why do we have doubts when creator says that all shall be revealed on the day of judgment? What’s the big deal? Again, simple logic.

Have firm faith in the afterlife and in your creator with unshakeable conviction for that is a condition that we all must fulfill for salvation, to be successful. Remind yourself of that fact all the time and do not fear death. Just be a nice person, make positive contribution to the society you live in and trust me you’ll be better off in the afterlife. The capabilities of your creator are far beyond your sanest comprehension.

The Hereafter will be a new cosmic arrangenent, a new world where we will assume highly advanced physical forms with much greater capabilities, and with absence of time we will effectively be immortals. Our position and placement will depend on our positive or negative contribution in this world and faith is a prerequisite, so even if you are a positive contibutor in this world, having faith in Creator and Hereafter is still a requirement and condition that you must accept with free will and unwavering conviction. That world will not require millennia of evoluation for that phase has already been completed. You will just be relocating and assuming new roles based on your performance and qualifications.

Faith protects you from obscurity and always remember “As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible, but more mysterious.”. We must understand and realize that more knowledge for sure gives us more clarifty and vision but only to a point, beyond that point it is all possibilities, a candid acknowlefgment of our utter ignorance. Faith is the vehicle that would help you sail through the mysterious journey.

Cheers!!
