Do you believe that we are Spiritual Beings and therefore live for eternity or do you belive that we are only here once and that we die that is it?

Con

I do not believe we are spiritual beings because that concept is against what scientific insight has shown us. Humans are animals, and we are entirely powered by our brains. We essentially are our brains, and we know this from years of intense study into neuroscience and advances in technology. We know which parts of the brain control reasoning, which parts control movement, which control consciousness, which control processing etc. If you don't believe me I'll link to a site when I've finished. The brain needs oxygen, if it doesn't get it then it dies. If the brain dies then everything you are stops. As I've said, we are our brains so when our brain dies, we die.
Put simply humans are just brains walking around in a suit, when the brain is gone then the human is gone forever. So that's why I try to enjoy the one life I have as much as possible.
