Will you still follow your religion if proof were found that there is no afterlife?
I couldn’t find any similar, previously asked questions, so forgive me if this has been settled earlier, elsewhere. The question is; will you still follow your religion if conclusive proof were discovered that there is no afterlife. This will just about nullify each and every religion out there. It seems as if the basic formula for all religion to gain power and authority is the same: Tell people, even though it can not be proved, that there is an afterlife, you have a soul, you will be judged based on what you do on earth and, voila, the hard drive is formatted! Add any version of software you like! Now I can just hear people say, “It is so, cause the bible said so!” On that I can just say that from where I’m standing, there seems to be a lot of contradiction and lies in the bible, and as communications and our scientific knowledge grows, the contradiction and lies seem to grow with it.
From this I can only conclude that the bible was written by man [minus the divine intervention] and no man alive knows what happens when you die.
Point being, religion not only ask of me to gamble my soul on an uncertain afterlife, but expects me to follow their rules in this life [at least I’m certain of this life, got proof].
Isn’t it time people open their minds to the facts on the table. We are here, something had to put us here and there seems to be rules of physics laid down by something. Should we not consider rethinking religion? Should a new world religion not be created based on the solid scientific facts?

I don’t have to wait for any new proofs to confirm my faith.
Science and religion clearly prove that composed elements will be decomposed into dust; spiritual entities will continue to exist spiritually.
Our body of dust will return to dust, our soul of spiritual reality will continue to exist in the spiritual world of the One True God under His eternal mercy. Humanity will inevitably enjoy the physical, intellectual and spititual education to attain greater hope, not to fall back as mere dust. If everything is dust, then man is really more miserable than the animals, because animals are indulging into all physical pleasures with no worry about the future, and they don’t have to labor and to bear suffering for the education of their children.

“God, the True One, testifieth and the Revealers of His names and attributes bear witness that Our sole purpose in raising the Call and in proclaiming His sublime Word is that the ear of the entire creation may, through the living waters of divine utterance, be purged from lying tales and become attuned to the holy, the glorious and exalted Word which hath issued forth from the repository of the knowledge of the Maker of the Heavens and the Creator of Names. Happy are they that judge with fairness.” (Baha’u'llah, Tablets of Baha’u'llah, p. 17)
