ideas of what would count as immortality – reincarnation, resurrection, rebirth, a legacy, as a
memory of others;
the problems associated with any of these options
of immortality;
evidence of immortality, such as scriptural accounts, ghost experience, channelling, Near Death Experience, revelation;
evidence against immortality, such as lack of proof, science, atheism;
