Is there any hard evidence for the afterlife?
The short answer is “No.”
No one has yet volunteered to have a cardiac arrest with the view of returning to their physical body to report back. Hardly surprising really…
The evidence therefore is anecdotal or circumstantial. It is either supplied through mediums, psychics, children claiming past lives, NDE evidence, paranormal investigations and a few others.
However, taken as a whole these are all pointing in the same direction and provide plenty of evidence to indicate there is more going on than meets the eye.
It comes down to reason and belief. And it works both ways, for neither is there hard evidence that there is no afterlife after death.
Personally I not only believe in the afterlife (through personal experience) I also think the evidence that is in place makes it a better than fair bet that it exists.
If you want to look at supporting evidence, take a read of my book,
Life and Death: Making Sense of It. Alternatively read of my article, Has Science Proved the Afterlife, or Near-Death Experience Overview. Associated links:
