When we die, what really happens? Do we go to an afterlife, as most religions suggest? Do we vanish into nothingness as our body turns into dust and ashes? Andrew McLanchlin argues there is another, better answer. Using the science of cosmology, whose best known proponent is Stephen Hawking, he argues convincingly for the circularity of time and the resulting circularity of life and death. At the moment of our death, we are reborn into precisely the same life we have just left. So, in a way, eternal life is the reality and death the fantasy.
