The bible says for those who believe in it John 11 chapter 25 " Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life. He that excercies faith in me even though he dies he will come to life.

I am not sure which side exactly you are taking- Your picture says con, but your argument is clearly pro.
***In response to your Bible quote, it is also said,
in Genesis 3:19 :
"In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."
Also, it is stated that if you are a Christian, and you follow the Bible, when you die you will resurrect. However, have you ever really thought about your soul? Have you ever thought about how the afterlife would work? Which life forms get an afterlife and which do not?
Does it have a soul and does it get an afterlife? Start with a bacterium. Does it have a soul and does it get an afterlife? A bacterium is a cell membrane filled with a variety of molecules. These molecules react together in different ways to create what we call life. However, when the reactions stop, so does the "life".

Whoa, you can't use the bible as reference of the afterlife unless you specifically plan of trying to show how a CHRISTIAN afterlife is not possible. You need a more objective definition of afterlife.

So you are for the afterlife or against the afterlife? You are labeled Con but provide evidence for its existence.
