I am a strong agnostic about the ultimate nature of reality. I don't know what happens after living things die. I know that bodies decompose but I don't know if we have an immortal soul. There is no evidence for the existence of immortal souls. Brains exist but souls probably don't. I would love to go to heaven but I am not convinced such a thing exists. It is possible that the near-death-experiences are caused by altered neural activities. There are two types of religions. Type 1: Resurrection happens after we die and we go to heaven or hell. Type 2: Reincarnation happens. Neither of these are proven with evidence. Obviously, if someone dead (not nearly dead, totally brain dead) came back to life and could show us using functional MRI scanner his or her memories of heaven or hell that would prove the claims.
