      There is no scientific evidence for coming back from the dead.

      Many faiths are based on the premise that there is a life after death and books of faith such a s the bible record several resurrections. Faith is belief in things unseen. Whereas science is based on observation of facts, formulating a theory to explain it and then observing to see if data fits with your theory and revising your views or theory based on what you observe.

      The world of science and faith do not easily mix, as one is based on what you can observe and you don’t draw any more conclusion than you should; while the other is recorded as a definitive and unbreakable and unvarying truth often set down in scripture by a deity. Some faiths encourage skeptical questioning of faith while other do not tolerate any doubt whatsoever. Each to his own.

      Either way your existence is to be cherished whether it’s a fleeting time on this earth or you are certain that this is just an interlude in a wider plan. Try and leave the world a better place.

      Hi Benmacanbeatha,

      Scientifically there is no way to come back after death..Once you die your body processes stops , cells start dying which means cells can’t grow again. There are lot of myths about ways to come back from death which doesn’t have any logic or proof.
