Religion and the afterlife was one thing. Now people often claim they know death is eternal oblivion, that they didn't exist before they were born, that they only have one life, that life has no greater purpose, and so on.
I hear these kind of claims all the time, yet I wonder how they are any different from claims to an afterlife.
Essentially what I'm asking is, where's the evidence?
The rational position, from my point of view, is Agnosticism. No evidence, no assumptions.
