The AfterLife

SURVEY: Have any of you actually thought about where you would go when you die? _Yes, all the time _Yes, but not often _No _I really just don’t care Do you believe in an Afterlife?
If yes, please explain why and/or what you believe it is like.

Regardless of your answer to the previous question; Do you believe in the Supernatural? Such as ghosts, spirits, demons, angels, poltergeist etc.?
If yes, please explain why and what you believe in, as far as the supernatural occurrences and experiences are concerned. Have you ever witnessed any supernatural occurrences? If yes, please explain.










OPINION/BELIEFS/ARGUMENT: The Afterlife does exist; although it may vary on different points depending on each individual who experiences it. Some first hand and others may witness another individual’s experience in some way. Whether it’s through spiritual (feeling) means or physical means (apparition).

SUPPORTING EVIDENCE: Why are my beliefs valid?

The Afterlife: a pretty broad and potentially complicated idea for most people. It has many different sub-topics within it. So if one were to talk about it and try to explain the concept to someone else, where would they begin? Perhaps they could start with the different religious beliefs and ideas of a Heaven, or place of paradise, and its alternative, Hell, or place of eternal suffering and damnation, perhaps even Limbo? Now what is that exactly; a place of judgment,…...

Life After World War Ii

...Life after World War II Once WWII ended, the United States experienced many changes, both good and bad. Despite inflation and war strikes, the U.S successfully transitions to a peacetime economy. The economy didn’t just change, but the government also with the changes in balance of power of the three branches of federal government during the 20th century resulting in the expansion of executive power during periods of crisis. Many factors contributed to the better economy, and even minimum wages increased to 75 cents because of one of Truman’s Fair Deal that Congress passed. Although with the good times, there came the bad. There was a lot of labor unrest during this period. After WWII, rising inflation triggered the labor unrest. A wave of U.S industrial strikes at the end of WWII contributed to President’s Truman’s attempt to place strict limits on striking labor unions when national interests were at stake. A miner’s strike also took place, which was ended by President Truman by ordering the government seizure of the mines while pressuring owners to grant most union demands. Labor leaders strongly rejected the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947 because the act favored big business interests over union interests. Delinquency was also a problem. Concerns about juvenile delinquency and failing educational systems surfaced during these years. Topping the list of juvenile crimes was car theft, which was something that needed to be changed. Other countries also had an impact on the U.S...

Life After Death

...The idea of a person or a person’s soul living on after death is shared by many religions. Where these religions differ is in what they believe happens after one’s death; there are even differing views about what happens within different denominations of the same religion. The question of life after death has perplexed man through the ages. In the Bible Job famously asked “if a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14). The notion of resurrection is central to Christian faith, it is the belief that Jesus returned to life on the Sunday following the Friday of his crucifixion. In Matthew 28 an angel says to the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene; “do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, as he said.” It is from the resurrection of Jesus that the Christian belief in life after death emerges. In John 11:25-26 Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.” This led to the belief that if one is to follow the teachings of Jesus and accept him as their lord and saviour; one can then look forward to the afterlife. N.T Wright, in his book Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church states that “Jesus’ resurrection is the beginning of God’s new project, not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven.” This literal view of resurrection in similar to the Hindu belief in......

After Life

...Afterlife Men and women both go through life playing a role and watching the role that is forced on them since childhood. Women feel they need to live up to the expectation that they need a man beside them in order to accomplish a successful life. By successful life, I mean a life where you are married, have children, and obey your husband. On the other hand, men are taught from infancy to be more powerful than their female counterparts, emotionally constipated, and of course, to fantasize about women, beautiful women to be exact. The film industry has a deep impact on continuing this biased cycle. We watch it, so therefore we live it. Recently I have watched two movies which had the main characters as females (which is quite rare in itself.) Of the two movies I watched, Resident Evil - Afterlife, and This Means War, one was a wonderful and refreshing depiction of women and passed the Bechdel Test, while sadly, the other portrayed women in the typical role of desperately searching for love and did not pass that test. This Means War, a movie about a women who has two men fighting over her, for her love. Not your typical romance storyline, because usually it is women fighting over a man. Shortly after the movie starts you are introduced to Lauren, a woman who feels a void in her life because she is not with a man. Lauren's confidant is her friend Trish, who is in fact married and has children and is pushing Lauren to find a man, by enrolling her in a dating......

Contents Introduction 3 Ideas on Life After Death in Different Religions 4 Perception of Life After Death in Literature: Dante's “Inferno” 6 Life After Death in Art: Rodin's “The Gates of Hell” 8 Conclusion 10 References 11 Introduction The question associated with life after death is associated with people of all races, genders, ages and world religions. It is understandable that people cannot live forever, and death is an inevitable event. But still people are interested what will happen to them after death, and what it means to die. There are great numbers of assumptions on this issue, and people's opinions differ, but still it is difficult to reveal the truth, as nobody knows this for sure. This paper will focus on different assumptions and possible events taking place after people's death. Of course every person thinks about afterlife concept in the current period of time, as it would be really strange not to consider this issue at least once. People should understand and be aware of possible events happened to them after life in order to value the current state of affairs and life in the present period of time. It is necessary to make the right choice and build proper relationships with people surrounding you, as every day is unique, and it would be impossible to return it again. D'Souza (2009) stated that the Bible teaches......

Lsi -Life Style Inventory Survey

...Life Styles Inventory (LSI) Self-Description Suggs MGMT-591-20612 (Leadership & Org. Behavior) January 15, 2015 The Life Styles Inventory (LSI) survey was something that helped me somewhat understand more about myself than I knew before. It also was helpful with confirming other characteristics about myself that I already knew and had knowledge of. After taking the Life Style Inventory survey, I noticed that I scored relatively high in the following areas: Perfectionist, Power, and Competitive. These three were my top out of the 12 categories or characteristics from the LSI survey. I would agree with two of the following, in which the competitive style kind of surprised me. Then again, thinking about the types of decisions and situation that I’ve come across, those three things actually play a big part in how I deal with different things. When it comes down to situations that involve work or even my social life, I have the tendency to show each one of those styles in some way, shape, or form. Within society, those three styles, in my opinion, are needed in order to survive this “cold” world that we live in. If you are strong willed, you will succeed, but if you are weak minded, you might crumble beneath the pressure of society and the beings that live in it. Perfectionist, Power, and Competitiveness are things that play a key role within the aspect of my life and everyday situations. I’ve always been the strong willed being, which always strive for success......

Life Before and After the Internet

...Life Before and After the Internet 3/6/2010 COMPOSITION I-136 Bianca Myles THESIS This paper contains how life without the internet used to be as opposed to how life is now that the internet is available for everything. It’s hard to imagine what life was like before the Internet. I’ve been using it for half of my life. Today’s generation is growing with it. There are kids that don’t even know the difference between life before and after the Internet came along. I’m sure you can tell the difference. The internet has revolutionized the way we do the simplest tasks that before the internet came along might take some time to accomplish. For instance, the way we bank has been changed.

Life After a Spinal Cord Injury

...Running Head: LIFE AFTER A SPINAL CORD INJURY The Quality of Life After a Spinal Cord Injury Jennifer Brenner Florida A&M University School of Nursing Hocevar and Gray (2008) states , “Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is a devastating and life-altering event, either temporary or permanent that affects motor and sensory integrity resulting in paralysis of lower or both upper and lower extremities, as well as autonomic nervous system function resulting in neurogenic bowel, neurogenic bladder, and sexual dysfunction” (p. 160). The majority of spinal cord injuries occur in young individuals and there is no treatment option for restoring spinal cord function below the level of injury. Approximately 253,000 people in the United States are living with SCI, and an estimated 11,000 new injuries occur each year (Hocevar & Gray, 2008). However, the complications of SCI can be reduced by medical treatment and rehabilitation. The purpose of this paper is to review research articles addressing the impact of SCI on quality of life from alterations in physical, cognitive, and emotional function. Studies have been conducted and showed that chronic pain and neurogenic bowel functioning are some of the major sequelae of SCI and they have a considerable impact on quality of life Living with a SCI is overwhelming due to the adjustments in lifestyle: the environmental barriers and activity limitations. The physical effects......

Life After Prison

... Life After Prison Pamela Nichols Everest Online Jennifer Dunn Composition II - 6 J. Katarzyna Woronowicz  /  for J. Katarzyna Woronowicz  /  for Randall Countryman, 40, applied for 90 positions before getting a five-week temporary assignment Do you know someone that has been in jail or prison for a long time? Do they have a plan when they get released? Do they have a job waiting on them? Do they have a place to live? Find a place to live, a job to support themselves and their families is one of the biggest things that an ex-offender will have to face when they are released. This is the problem that most inmates have to think about upon release. Some may not have someone in the family that they can turn to. There are those that don’t have a safe place to go to, so they have to worry about can I go there and not get back into the same trouble that got me put into jail in the first place. Ex-offenders should have more opportunities to have jobs, housings, and to more places to get habilitation service if needed. Finding work is hard work in the reentry process for many reason. There are many places that programs that are made to help them to come back into society and also help with finding jobs. But some of these work programs do not make finding a job easy. So the problem is that some overcrowded prisons currently house more...

Life After Death

...2014 (a) Examine the key features of one belief about life after death. The concept of life after death is one that is much discussed by human beings, for many reasons. Perhaps we are afraid of death, or we wish to have the comfort that we will see loved ones again, or we simply feel that our earthly lives are too short to be ended at death. It is universally accepted that one day, our current lives will end because our bodies, as physical entities, will perish: ‘by their nature, physical things perish.’ (Tyler and Reid) However, it is the theories for post mortal existence that differ between religions. In his books Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas suggested that each being has an ‘anima’; a soul which animates the body, thus giving it life. Aquinas believed in the monistic view: that ‘the natural condition of the soul is to be united with the body.’ (Aquinas) Plato, however, believed in dualism. This is the idea that the body and soul are two separate things; the body a contingent entity that will decay over time, while the spirit is non-contingent and will go on forever. Many theories exist for what happens after death. One example is the Hindu belief in reincarnation; a dualistic concept, involving the transmigration of the atman (soul) into a new physical body after the current one dies: ‘Just as a person casts off his worn out clothes, so does the disembodied soul cast off worn out bodies in exchange for a new one.’ (Bhagavad Gita) Throughout an extensive......

Life After Apple Picking

...Life After Apple Picking Like a lot of poetry Robert Frost's “After Apple Picking” does not come to a straightforward conclusion at the end of its literary journey, however, much can be said about the change in meaning within the poem from beginning to conclusion. At first glance, “After Apple Picking” seems like a straightforward poem about a person finishing their days work of picking apples. I intend to show that this is not the case at all and that Frost's poem progressively shifts throughout its entirety from a simple poem about apple picking to a literary piece about mortality. This journey will consist of four sections an introduction, a reflection, a realization and finally end with the acceptance of death. As stated above the first six lines showcase a very simple situation about a person completing their apple picking for the day. This simple situation that Frost outlines for the reader is the introduction to the poems overall journey. The introduction, outlines the central focus of the poem, which is apple picking and most importantly provides the reader with a sense of what is to come. There are in fact many hints that provide the reader with more insight into this sense of what is to come. The first line of the poem provides the reader with a picture of a ladder resting against a tree but it is not until the second line when that ladder is paired with the mention of heaven that the image of death is revealed. These images are......

...Life Styles Inventory Janessa Herron MGMT 591 Leadership & Org Behavior Dr. Kimm July 15, 2012 As indicated by the Life Style Inventory assessment, I scored in the highest percentiles for humanistic encouraging, achievement, and self-actualization. The three of these categories scored 40 and ranked in the 99th percentile, these would be considered my primary thinking styles. My secondary style is the affiliate style, which received 38 and ranked in the 93rd percentile. Pertaining to the 12 o’clock position, self actualizing, I feel that I relate to this style, however it is not the style I self identify with the most. Per LSI description, Self-Actualizers are effective because they seek possibilities in all opportunities. It also states that I have a strong concern for self-development, strong instincts & intuition, and I have an energetic and exciting approach for life. The achievement style is another style that I can relate to, but do not self identify with. I feel as though I have a personal need to be the over achiever; Especially in the academic world. I also like to have things in order, I lead by example as the descriptions say. Humanistic encouraging is the 1 o’clock position. This is the style that I scored high on and feel I can self identify. The LSI description says that I have a concern for the growth and development of others as well as nurturing side. I fully agree with this. I feel this allows me to better my......
