What Is It Like to Die?

Most of us have experienced general anaesthesia. You go under and wake up some hours later as if no time had passed. Nothing subjectively happens in the interim. This is close to the experience of death. It is not in the least painful or scary. So why then do people believe fanciful stories concocted by con men about what happens when you die? If you used physician-assisted suicide, the subjective experience is absolutely identical to death since it starts the same way.

Hidden Past

They[creationists] have this absurd notion that something that occurs in the past and that is not subject to direct observation is not provable. That’s nonsense… There is a mystery as to how evolution occurs, but there is not a whole lot of doubt as to whether it occurs.

~ Dr. Stephen Jay Gould (born:1941-09-10 died:2002-05-20 at age:60).
