"I look upon death to be as necessary to the constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning. And, finding myself to exist in the world, I believe I shall, in some shape or other always exist."
Science has nothing to do with it. "Science" doesn't say or claim anything. "Scientists" don't have a position other than sticking to methods to determine facts.Science is not a religion.
