Rationality tells me there is no afterlife and when you die it is like having no emotions, thoughts or senses. But factual evidence of an afterlife is existent such as interview with people who have been brought back to life with hospital machinery after being dead for a few minutes, and all their stories sound similar, so is that a typical response that happens to the body when going under this situation or is this actually evidence of an afterlife?
A person telling a story, testimony
to borrow a phrase, is not factual evidence of anything. It is the conscious recollection of an event in the past, which may or may not be accurate with respect to reality. If I were to take psychotropic drugs and tell you that the room is filled with green mushrooms, orange butterflies and 3-headed snakes, is that not factual? My recounting of the experience is factual, but the elements of the experience are clearly not factual.
People who are dying are clearly not dead yet. Their body and brain are not working properly. Anyone who has been sick can sometimes tell a different tale of something that occurred. Their telling of the story is factual because they experienced it and are telling what they saw, but the elements of what occurred are not accurate with respect to reality.
You are like some of my relatives who don't believe in god but cannot stand the thought of nothing existing after they die. They want to believe in something
. You can believe in whatever you like, but you shouldn't confuse testimony with reality.
