I don't believe in anything except life sucks and then you die. Depressing, I know. That's why only 3% of the people on Earth are in my boat. People want to believe in an afterlife so bad that they delude themselves and conjure up ghosts from explainable events such as shadows.
I believe in an afterlife, though not in a religious sense. I can't believe in nothingness after death, because everything we experience is a memory, though we're probably talking about nanoseconds here.
That being said, I can't remember anything before birth, so my argument may be null and void right there.
