5.0 out of 5 stars Changed my life, February 27, 2004
This review is from: The Illusion of Immortality (Paperback)
This book absolutely changed my life... for better or worse, I am still unsure... but I feel liberated nonetheless. My Father has died since and I felt the real sorrow of actually feeling like I am not to ever see him again... just because of this book. I read it a couple of years ago & I am just now starting to get over the shock and sorrow of what Corliss Lamont pointed out. I am not sorry I read it I suppose... afterall I cannot be angry at the truth. Yet on the other hand, is not the "mirage" of afterlife a false sense of happiness that we sorely need through this life? Once a believer actually comes to the end, they'll never really know if the afterlife was a big lie... because they'll be dead... and thus, unaware of their mistaken prediction. Meanwhile with blind "faith", they can at least wear a smile on their face until the end. So one might make the argument that the faithful are indeed better off... even if they are completely wrong. Afterall, they chase this "mirage" with delusional glee as I sit with the horrific realization that it isn't water at all. Sometimes I wish I were more gullible. Ignorance may very well be bliss.
