I think it can be filed under a courageous rational approach in dealing with the reality of death.


Really?

So how much verifiable evidence do you have for consciousness surviving death? And what the hell has courage got to do with it?


I have absolutely no evidence that consciousness continues after death. I have absolutely no evidence that consciousness ceases death. I state very cleary it is an open issue and that it is possible for consciousness to continue after death. One thing that is undeniable is that all humans will die. However if one finds oneself conscious after death, I offer a suggestion that I think will help a person who may find himself in an afterdeath reality. My suggestion is simple and that is to use the scientific method to explore this afterdeath reality.

Science has arrogantly brainwashed many into to falsely believing it is not possible for consciousness to continue after death. It takes courage to face up to this delusion and realize it is possible for consciousness to continue after death.



This is a strawman argument, google it if you are unsure what that means. Science has not brainwashed anyone. Science does not say that it's not possible for consciousness to continue post-mortem, just that we have zero evidence to support that hypothesis, until some evidence emerges the hypothesis is discarded as useless. However, you have made the positive claim that "...it is possible for consciousness to continue after death" without having any reason whatsoever to make it. And you have the nerve to talk about the scientific method, while repeatedly demonstrating that you have a very poor understanding of it.
