About Isuru Abeysinghe

My life has generally been devoted to the pursuit of technical ambitions, being a graduate of Software Engineering and working for a financial services company as a software developer. However, I have many interests in humanities - history and politics mainly - providing fuel for my creative outlet of writing. I try and integrate equal parts of bleak and almost brutal analysis together with sardonic comedy to produce works that I hope will offer new perspectives and reflect actual social issues in the real world.

Review by: Don Bloomer on July 23, 2013 :
This author attempts to prove his hypothesis using science and mathematics. Sadly, he only demonstrates his lack of understanding of mathematics and logic. It is not educational and it is not entertaining. Not recommended.

Review by: Magnus Brown on June 11, 2013 :
Was disappointed at lack of science. Would be an excellent starting point for a religion, however.

Firstly, there is factual inaccuracy in explanation of probability. A probability of 1 means certainty, 100%, not "more likely to occur than not." Not enough is known about the Big Bang to know that we are in an infinite cycle of universes - this is merely an interesting suggestion - and all evidence is that the universe we're in won't end, but rather keep expanding forever. Chaos Theory does not directly support point (5) - this needs to be shown. I don't think the argument is actually valid, but, in any case, the conclusion is not what you claim. Another copy of me being alive in the future does not feel like a continuation of me - hardly an afterlife.

At the most fundamental level humans are energy, and yes, energy can change forms. However, energy has not yet been shown to be sentient, or even displayed a potential to be so, therefore to assume that we will somehow guard this sentience after we die seems wrong, however the argument is framed.

Continued sentience after death is what an afterlife is, is it not?

I am sure you had fun writing this, that's why the four stars.

Fun! I didn't really understand everything, but I like being able to say I am immortal because the odds say so.

Can I point you to the direction of Kurt Godel. He was arguably the worlds greatest logician and was as convinced of the 'afterlife' as he was of the truth of his theorems. You may also like the ontological arguments.

It is interesting to think of having an afterlife exists in a 'different' world. Good read.

An interesting and in depth discussion. However, as with every religious argument, whether that religion is Christianity, Bhuddism, or Atheism, the arguments always sound better from your own point of view. I should know, having debated my own faith countless times with everyone from atheists to pagans to wiccans. Once you believe you are right, your arguments will always lead to the same place. That's okay. As nothing I can say can convince you of the divinity of Christ, nothing you can say can convince me that there is no God. The debates themselves are more for the debaters than for those they "argue" with. I like your conclusion. I have never seen an atheist argue for an afterlife before, even if our views of what that afterlife would be are vastly different. This is a great discussion starter for people of any belief system. Thanks for this work.
