You seem to know that there's a afterlife where is your evidence

I don't know what happens at death; I am still alive. Let the dead tell you if there's afterlife.

There isn't afterlife; There is life, and there is life.

There are stupid questions as well as intelligent questions.
While stupid people simply scoff at stupid questions and just stop at that, intelligent people answer the stupid questions intelligently with corrective intelligent questions.
For instance, if NightSerf asks jide oni if the latter is a Nigerian or an African, jide oni will ask NightSerf if Nigeria is not in Africa.
Or better still, should Mikko ask to know why some people don't believe in no-afterlife like him/herself, jide oni will ask Mikko if he/she has died before, for him/her to have known that there is no afterlife.

Referring to yourself in the third person is a lame attempt to cloak yourself in some sort of authority.

Blatant lie. The two posts are not identical. Obviously, the network problem in question is a problem of the network residing between your ears.

You are certainly an authority on Sh*t You Made Up, but you are very far from an authority on reality, a subject on which you evidence no familiarity, let alone authority.

Man is the microcosmic replica of the larger universe.
Man is made up of earth, water, air and fire, powered by individual mind.
The universe is the collectivity of earth, water, air and fire, powered by what?

This post is wrong in its entirety.

Man is not a microcosmic replica of the larger universe. That's just another philosophical abstraction that cannot be substantiated on any rational level. It fails even a a statement of faith. It's pure nonsense.

Man is not made up of fire, water, earth, and air. Those and aether make up the foundation of ancient chemistry--alchemy--that has been repudiated and supplanted by modern science, It is likewise utter nonsense. Man is not powered by the mind, rather, the mind is powered by man's biology. The demands it places on the metabolism is huge, requiring as much as 30% of an individual's caloric intake.

The universe is not made up of the classical elements. either, and for the same reasons--that model was repudiated centuries ago. What powers the universe? The honest answer is that nobody knows. Science calls it dark energy, but that is, as Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson points out, just a placeholder name. It doesn't indicate anything about the force except that it is what causes the universe to expand when conventional models of physics would have predicted that it would be contracting.

The difference between scientists like Tyson and religious apologists like jide oni is that Tyson is aware of the limits of his knowledge and admits to it openly while oni makes stuff up and fools himself into believing that it's true, that it's more than a guess made in ignorance to avoid that same awareness.

That's what makes Tyson wise and oni a fool.
