    I don't think that what makes a person "them" necessary survives even to the point when they die. I certainly wouldn't believe that it magically survives after death somehow.

    Yes. On the "flip side" after we drop the physical body, we review the life just lived, learn from it and come back again to continue our journey.

    Are you asking if we believe in an afterlife? I most certainly do, and always have.

    When the brain is dead, you no longer exist. Christians will be resurrected at the end for eternal life, but the others will never live again.

    No. I'm not too sure what that entails.

    Define life?

    As expected by some religions, no, but see the first law of thermodynamics.

    Well, I believe life will persist after my death. My nutrients will be absorbed by the surrounding soil, and parts of me will help to nurture various manifestations of life until the day life on this planet ends.

    If you asking about my consciousness, then no. Consciousness, much like everything else in the body, breaks down and degrades over time. Cherish life while you still have the faculties to do so!

    Here's some data for you, from the Pew Research Center on religion: 78% of Americans believe in heaven, while 48% believe in hell.

    No, I don't believe anything that would be regarded as being myself survives death, other than in the atoms that make up my physical body.
