Yes, yes I realise that it must have been here before but I am trying to make a case and I want hear as many (good arguments) against as I can so I can figure out counter-arguments (if there are some at all - if not then kudos to you) as to bolster my case. Observe the following syllogism: 1. The existence of human mind is sustained by brain activity. 2. Upon death brain ceases to be active. 3. Therefore upon death human mind ceases to exist. (Hence no life after death excluding stuff like copying your brain pattern into a computer before you die and other science fiction ideas) 1. Is the syllogism sound ASSUMING that the two premises are correct. (This should be straight forward) 2. Are the two premises sound? - unlike 1. this wont have a definitive answer but thats basically where the debate lies. Hazzah and cheers.
