A Lawyer Presents the Case for the Afterlife



Why materialists have huge problems - especially the extreme materialists?

1. I believe in materialism and only in materialism. I will not allow myself to believe in anything else.

2. I do not believe in anything else unless I can touch it, see it, hear it, smell it or taste it.

3. I will call myself a ‘skeptic’ even though I fully realize I am cheating and lying when I do this because a skeptic always allow for ‘doubt’ and for possible subsequent confirmation, whereas as a materialist I do NOT allow for doubt. I am absolutely convinced absolutely nothing beyond physical explanation of the world around can exist.

4. I regard secular orthodoxy and materialism as my own gods and my salvation for this lifetime on this earth. As an extreme materialist I will always push selfishness to its extreme to attain maximum comfort and pleasure for myself – even if I have to corrupt or prostitute my talents or exploit my position in life to attain all this.

5. I do not believe in helping the weak, aiding the poor, helping those who cannot help themselves or in doing anything unless there is a direct benefit in it for me or for my own career- especially in psychology.

6. I am strongly against spirituality, against religion, against ‘god’, and actively against anything else EXCEPT the ‘secular religion’ of materialism.

7. I live only for materialism and will do anything in my power to work against the paranormal, psychic phenomena and anyone who tries to show the afterlife exists. And I am not prepared to read any material claiming that there is evidence for the afterlife. When we die, we die - I do not want to read anything else contrary to that.

8. I believe I will not be ultimately responsible for my negative actions, negative deeds, negative manipulations, negative conduct in any way.

9. As an extreme materialist, I will maliciously do anything to attain my goal – I believe in the notion that the end justifies the means. I will lie, cheat, misrepresent, deceive, deface, desecrate anything which is fundamentally inconsistent with my extreme belief in materialism.

10. Inevitably, I will always be a short term thinker and short term planner for my immediate gain on this planet earth with absolutely no thoughts past this lifetime on earth.

N.B. For the record, no materialist has ever rebutted the evidence amounting to absolute proof for the afterlife
