  • There is not a single, satisfying answer to this question. A body that dies peacefully during sleep from non-traumatic causes will experience death differently from one that falls awake into a vat of acid or a fire or other terrifying prospect. Since conciousness is not always or necessarily tied to what happens to our body (for example: people who suffer grievous wounds in battle but don't feel them or know about it till afterward), we can't prove what the concious mind experiences or "feels" at or near death. There are many near-death stories where the person claims to have taken (for a short time) a concious perspective beyond the body to watch what is happening from the outside. These may just be fanciful dreams, but they may not. Those who do not believe there is a spirit that survives death would probably take the position that it does not feel like anything because you can't feel anything when you die because there is no "you" when you die.
  • Elvis told me it's not nearly as bad as a root canal.
  • As the brain dies it deteriorates to its most basic functions. So at the end you will experience what it is like to live as a lizard because this would be the root portion of the brain that was used first on the long line of evolution. The first thing to fail would be your higher functions in the frontal cortex. The last part would be above the spinal cord. Prepare to revert to lifes most basic entity.

      Hi Anon...Sorry, but I cannot agree with you...As someone who has a couple of lizards as pets, the last one was handles from one day old, they have a positive personality, and can even show you what they like or not...so they are far above basic...And YOU know evolution is a load of crock...it denies scripture...nod nod wink wink...Have a nice day...
  • Death is the opposite of life. Whether good or bad, we all know what life is like. Probably the best part is waking up after a good nights sleep. We remember laying our head on the pillow, but thats all. We remember nothing in between [ maybe except getting up to go you know where]. Death is like this middle bit. No consciousness. blankness. Exactly what the Bible says it is like. .Ecclesiastes 9; 5 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten. 6 Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they have no portion anymore to time indefinite in anything that has to be done under the sun. Ezekiel 18; 4 Look! All the souls—to me they belong. As the soul of the father so likewise the soul of the son—to me they belong. The soul that is sinning—it itself will die. ISAIAH 26;14 They are dead; they will not live. Impotent in death, they will not rise up. Therefore you have turned your attention that you might annihilate them and destroy all mention of them. Q.E.D.
  • It is the only thing you will ever do utterly. You will know this at the time if you are lucky. Ever wonder why as often as not the deads eyes are open? It is more of the same with a different set of preceptions. When it is your time you may accept it or not but it does change what comes after. You know how in a dream you enter in to the scene with a knowledge of how you got there but no memory of it. Well, you die like wakeing up from a dream with a whole new understanding things that no matter how hard try you will never understand with out actually staying dead. There is a reason to die peacefully. Dying may really suck for you when it happens, but being dead is not a bad thing. Our living understanding just does not apply. Relax you are going to die. Wish you luck with it.

      There is no ' perceptions' [ awareness] after death...as stated in Ecclesiastes
  • When you go to sleep you are half dead. See how that feels like.
  • Death? Not sure if I was really there. Dying..Feels fuzzy. Not at all uncomfortable in itself. Separated from the pain, it feels almost too comfortable.
  • well shake - rattle and roll right out of his grave.... crazy answer to a crazy comment :) not in good taste to polk fun....sorry Elvis.
  • death is a travel from being in transit to "life".....life after death. It depends on you and what you created durning your transit as to the path you travel in death. How does it feel? falling, light, darkness, lost, peace, no pain or pain. Depends on YOU....
  • i am guessing it is like a sinking sensation except it does not stop you keep on falling feeling nothing aware of nothing thinking nothing boring huh
  • Dont be afraid of death,i beleiev once you die your spirit goes up and you rest and recouperate from your previous life,you write your next lessons to learn in your next life. You appoint your spirit guides.we cannot come back as a lower life form,we have done that already hence got to the human form. you may come back as a man or woman it is said that the people who we love we will come back to again but next time in a different situation eg you may be married and have a daughter you may next time be the daughters wife and she may be the husband. Theres no hard and fast rule because you are a woman in this life that you will be a woman in the next. We may have been here a few times before or maybe only twice we dont no what stage we have got to. See life as this its like a circle,no beggining and never ending.Enjoy this life time,because you dont know what the next one will be like,and never be afraid.:)

      Ecclesiastes 9: 5,6,10 denies all this.
  • Please be aware that anyone attempting to answer this question is working with the handicap of not having personal experience. At least, those who have actually died are persistently refusing to login and share their responses.
    • pugwashjw65
      Because they are unable to. having no consciousness.
  • I once spoke to a man that had died and was brought back 4 minutes later due to medical assistance. When I asked him what he felt as he was dying he simply responded "I'm not really sure" he said when it was occuring he felt as if he was watching it from the outside as if he was watching a movie of his very own death. But he wasn't quite sure if it was during or after his death. Personally I'd like to believe it was after his short death that he was "watching" himself. It would be proof that we certainly do have an after-life. There are some that believe once you die you are non-exsistant and have no such awarness of your death. Nothingness basically. As far as science goes, once the brain dies you no longer exsist. But if this is true, if this man I spoke to was indeed looking upon his lifeless corpse... There's no way it was his brain providing this conciousness. According to science anyway. Perhaps the brain is just a short lodging of our memories and thoughts... Perhaps we do infact live on.
    • pugwashjw65
      The Bible says Not. Again...Ecclesiastes 9: 5,6,10 We do not ' live again' until AFTER we are resurrected. And that moment has yet to arrive.
  • I suspect its different for everyone. I can tell you that if you go through life being afraid of death then you will never truly be alive.
  • Less than 2% of the world population dies from a horrific incident...Relax, don't worry, you are going to live a long and happy life, and will have a very peaceful death experience....
  • I have heart problems and have expired three times now. The first time, I was defibrillated by the EMT's who got the heart beating again after being dead for some minutes with my daughter trying to give me CPR. I was in a coma for three days and then just work up. All memory of the incident were erased. I woke up happy and content. The other times, I was brought immediately back by an implanted defibrillator. No memory, no distress, no pain. When I defibrillate...there is nausea, dizziness and things start to go in slow motion. Then I feel fuzzy in the head and pass out. No pain. I also have no feeling of being "zapped" by the defibrillator. I had hopes of the light, the tunnel, etc., but I didn't have any of that.
  • Actually, once you're dead, you wouldn't have the luxury of sensation. So, you wouldn't be able to feel anything. In fact, I would go to the extent of saying, we wouldn't be concious of our death.
  • Close your eyes what do you see? Block you ears what do you hear? unablt to touch or be touched, alone. death
  • I don't have a clue....i am still alive and kicking!
  • Who Knows????
    • pugwashjw65
      Remember the old radio show " The Shadow"..." Who knows what lurks in the heart of men...the shadow knows ".. In this case...the Bible knows...Ecclesiastes 9 : 5,6,10
  • death. there is no answer to this question. As stableboy said we are all answering this question with a handicap. death i like persume is different for us all.
  • You will feel the same as you did before you were born.
  • The act of death has no feeling. What happens after death may bring special feelings.
  • When I had a sever car accident. The paramedics tried to resuscitate me. They tried the third time, I came back. (They told me (later) after three tries they are taught to not try anymore. I feel lucky. Did I see lights - angels--I do not remember anything. That is the closes to death I have been.
  • As I am Alive I don't know what death feels like. But I hear that suicide is painless.
  • Though all the other answers herein are good, they miss the point. Many people who have died report a type of euphoria, which is understandable because the nuerons and synapses in your brain are firing off exponentially, futily trying to restart your bodys oxygen supply. When these nuerons fire off they trigger memories and euphoric peptides to ease the body's passing, normally the last thing to die in the body is the brain, and after ten to twelve minutes, it's over and irreversable. No one knows what we feel beyond that. It can be assumed you feel nothing when your dead because your brain doesn't register feelings anymore. Your not in your physical body anymore, whatever energy, be it a soul or whatever, that powered you is gone, and the shell of your body is incapable of housing the soul anyfurther, hence you cease to exist. Medically speaking, the brain goes through a series of electrical triggers as it shuts down, which in turn release chemicals in the brain to ease ones passing. These chemicals induce euphoria, black out, memory flashes (as if in dream state), out of body experiences, etc. etc. Such experiences have been documented by the medical establishment.
  • It doesn't....thats why it's called death!
  • Christians believe than the soul never really dies. Our bodies will decay and fade away. But, our souls will be with the LORD forever. As to answer your question, I believe that if you are a true believer of Christ, that at the time of your death the LORD will take you out of your body and free you from any pain. I believe death can be a joyful thing. I mean, this is hell we are living in. Think about it.
  • there is no death of the body. the soul lives forever an d you can chose Heaven or Hell.
  • NOTHING
  • In my near death experience I first felt panic and said to myself "this is it I'm doing it, I'm dying". Then there is the making peace with God and saying goodbye to the loved ones. An incredible feeling of peace and tiredness overwhelmed me. In this instant I felt I could pass to the other side but chose to stay for my children. Death, how does it feel? In my case it was wonderful feeling and it took effort to bring myself back to this world. I suppose it could be different for other people and the circumstances at the time of death.
  • When considering this, consider that death is not always necessarily a bad thing. If one has lived a "good" life, satisfied with what they have done and without regret, they will willingly allow death to take them, for life has probably been a long enough struggle already. In this case, death can be seen as one's savior, a spirit confirming that one's life has not gone to waste, and that his/her soul shall now be able to rest. Conversely, there are those who would greatly detest death, and therefore fear it. Whether this may be because the person is young and has far more to accomplish, or it is because the person is old, and has done a lot of things that he/she has regretted, without fixing them, this type of death will be most painful. A death at a young age will be painful because he/she, at such a young age, has most likely not done enough to satisfy his/her own aspirations. These type of people are definitely unfortunate, for they have yet to accomplish their greatest desires, never being able to experience true happiness with their lives. As unfortunate as this may be, perhaps the worst feeling may be the death of one who is dying with great regret. He/she has done terrible or regretful things in his/her past, and now he/she will forever be denied the opportunity to fix them. The amount of sorrow that this person will feel will be extrordinary, the greatest destroying feeling possibly to mankind. I don't think I'd ever be able to describe in words how painful regret is, but this is the feeling of death that must be avoided. Generally, I wouldn't at all worry about the physical pain associated with death. When the time comes, you'll have to deal with it, and though I have no personal experience, I believe that it won't be too terrible, unless you're part of that 2% of the people that die from horrific incidents. Instead, worry about the emotional pain that you'll feel at this time. You want to welcome death, because you know that you've done everything right. There is nothing greater than this satisfaction, I am fairly sure. However, it's up to you to decide whether or not you feel this welcoming of death, or the incredibly painful feeling of regret; regret that you could've helped someone, regret that you could've accomplished something, regret that you let someone down, regret that you could've, should've would've done ANYTHING. This type of death is WORSE than death, I'll guarantee, and should definitely be avoided. It's up to you to decide this.
  • an afternoon in Tacoma, WA
  • i had a near death experience. I was like listening to Perry Como on acid. The world slowed down, I was at peace with the universe, in cosmic sameness. Then I opened my eyes and it was Tuesday.
  • If dying a stunning and horrifying death, I would imagine the last thing you'd feel would be panic. Then, depending upon your religion, you can believe what happens. I would assume dying in your sleep would be painless as long as it happened quickly, as not to wake you up in the process.
  • I would assume it's like being born but less promising. Eather way, you're sliding out of a nice, warm, familiar place without knowing what lies ahead but not really caring.
  • Google this guy: Dannion Brinkley He has a lot to say on this topic.
  • I don't know personally. Kerry Packer (who is now dead) was the richest man in Australia. He was clinically dead at one stage years ago and when asked about the experience afterwards said 'there is f*cken nothing on the other side i assure you'.
  • Death almost always feels unfortunate - even when its an obvious event.
  • There was a lady that i read about in a magazine who was "brought back from the dead" who sold her story to the papers, alot of people that have died for a short time then had medical assistance say that they are going towards a cookie jar type bowl but when they go to reach it they are alive again as if it was a bad dream.
  • Researchers actually think that the idea of visions could be chemical reactions when the brain is shutting down.
  • Waiting in a divorce court.
  • There is a macabre joke that say: when I die, I want to go like my grandfather, peacefully in his sleep, not screaming like his passengers... (seriously, there is no way to say what death feels like. There is an incredible episode on MASH where WInchester is almost killed, and goes beresque trying to find out what dying is like. He eventually sits beside a man who is dying and asks him what he is feeling. the man simply says "I smell bread". I think this means that what happens when you die is not the same for everyone, because what you die of is different.)
  • In which context? Do you mean what does it feel like when 'you' die, or when someone else dies? Here are both answers. When someone else dies; My dad died when I was 8 and it felt horrible. It makes you want to go back in time and accept that offer he made to go sledding, or that time he asked to go for a walk. It makes you wonder where he is and if he's watching you. I wish my dad could be here, but then I couldn't answer this question. When you die; HOW SHOULD ANYONE KNOW!!!
  • Death follows life. it's an inevitable part of every living organism's existance. sure, it's something none of us are quite prepared for but can it really be that bad, i mean everyone's doing it. Besides, fear of death is an understandable anxiety for us all.....the fear of not knowing. The human body is an awesome and very complex structure and will ultimately try to defend itself against pain and such, therefore making death a more comfortable, relaxing experience? Anyway considering we all live in a world ridden with war and famine (oh! and by the way i'm not manic depressive) the question in hand should possibly be.....What does life feel like?
  • i doubt you fel anything, your dead
  • Death cannot feel like anything. To feel, you must be sensate,if you are dead, you have no senses.
  • Personally, I've never died... But it feels very lonesome, very cold and just empty. Very melancholy, sort of complexe, and mildly intriguing. Nothing I'd want to be in any time soon. Let's all die and find out.
  • I don't know if we "feel" any more, I think we just are (maybe like a tree?) When we die, all the energy that our body had moves out of our brains (which creates the feeling of happieness, pain, anger etc.) and bodies. That energy has to go somewhere, I don't know where it goes, or what it feels like to be that energy. I imagine that's when people feel like they are at "peace" or "one" with the universe, because their energy is mixed in with all the rest of the energy. What does it feel like to be "nothing?" Does our energy go into other bodies?
  • Orgasmic if achieved with the right person.. who i'm still looking for.. for a return bout.. No-one else will do.. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! sick of all these substitutes!!!
  • I had a near death experience (I presume it was) not so long ago. I was choking and I stopped breathing for roughly a minute. It felt like I was slowly falling down a black hole (by this time I was lying on the floor). My friends voices became fainter and fainter and I felt like I was leaving my body, I remember having this strong feeling of not wanting to go further into the darkness. Then all of a sudden I became aware of the sounds around me, but I couldn't see (all I could see was black). I screamed and started crying and my vision came back. I don't know whether I was dying or blacking out due to lack of oxygen, it was very scary whatever happened. Katy
  • I've never experienced death, but isn't that the ultimate question? I suppose it would depend on whether you're experiencing a slow death, or dying instantly. I would suppose that it would feel strange since it's not something you go through everyday, is it? Maybe it would be scary, we'll have to wait and see. Maybe a better question is: will it mean that we are annihilated forever.
  • No idea! I regard death [ie., termination of life) as I do the birth process. It is a transition from one form of existence to another. Once aware of oneself (I don't know the typical age for this event) one knows nothing about the pre-birth condition. Maybe death is the same. The only thing we know for sure is that ones body doesn't look to be of much use after a couple years. What happens to the 'information' we contain is up to each individual to believe in, depending on Faith or suspicion.
  • It's important to realize that it might be only a physical death. That is brain-death{along with the body of course}. Also, if we see death as a beginning and not an end, we would not worry as much,. Many cultures see it as entering a new phase.
  • What does deep sleep feel like? There is no there to report back...
  • The phrase "near-death" I feel is a misnomer. I'd call them "death experiences" because the person has, on numerous occasions, been shown to be both percieving things way beyond any physical possibility (even visual perception in the blind, people, events and conversations and events miles away, later verified) and in some cases to have been flatlining on both the heart and brain monitors. The release of endorphins and various chemicals upon death explains some of the peaceful sensations, but none of them are hallucinogens, and the brain is in no state to give rise to cohesive consciousness. What's more compelling is that people claim that the reality they percieved was *realer than normal* Skeptics have said that this, while indicative of psychic perception, doesn't prove any out of body state. The inherent problems in that argument are obvious.
  • Closest I can come to that is comparing it to having endured 6 years of W, no escape for two more and afraid to be killed by terrorists because he has created so mamy more of them to defeat them and is responsible for the deaths of more US service people than 9-11 killed, with more promised, not to mention the destruction within the entire Middle East. Hell begins here, in other words. Heaven begins with doing and saying what brings Peace, and it has NOTHING to do with near-death experiences, angels calling us forward and seeing brilliant white before us. Those experiences may be true, but make HEAVEN by LOVE and banish HELL on earth by 'DELETING" hate, including attacks on others beliefs on these posts. My comments about W are based on his record, where He stands with God and Laura and Dick Cheney are beyond my knowledge. Too many condemn, tut-tut with no love, compassion, knowledge of the Bible or history here in posts and in too many pulpits, talk shows and "Christian" Media. They are the intellectual and moral equivalent of theterrorists who use bombs and guns to "get" others for Allah! while they think they are on Jesus' side.
  • A few years ago, I hypothesized that it may feel similar to the sensation of having a phantom limb (minus the pain usually associated with it), but instead affecting the entire body. Here's an article on phantom limbs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_limb
  • I've been close enough to answer this. Cold and calming. But not close enough to come back.
  • Your question assumes that we can perceive the sensation of death. What if our consciousness leaves our body at that moment. Are we still able to feel, see, hear?
  • If you can feel, your not dead. However I have no idea what if "feels" like on the other side.
  • I read the following review of the book "To Hell and Back: Life After Death Startling New Evidence" by Maurice S. Rawlings (Author): "Initially skeptical himself, the author encounters experiences that are too real not to be believed. As he discusses why negative experiences are not discussed, we start to realize the true reasons people are not talking as much about the visions of hell as the peaceful vistas of heaven: "The typical description involves a beautiful light at the end of a very dark tunnel...others saw the same tunnel and the apparent light turn into a horrible ring of fire..." This book contains both experiences and goes beyond drug induced OBEs and convincingly explains why people not on any drugs experienced NDEs. As a doctor, the author enters this arena from a position of strength and deftly describes experiences that read like an ER reality show. The descriptions of Hell are not overly detailed, but enough is told that you get the general idea. What does death feel like? What percentage of people encounter a positive experience? Do people of different faiths experience NDEs in basically the same way? Is it too late to come back to earth when you realize you have ended up in the wrong place? Surprising answers... Do atheists sometimes go to heaven and confessing religious people to hell? Do some people go to neither place? How can you ensure that you will have a good life after death? The authors' life experience truly enhances the stories in this book and his first-hand knowledge brings a sense of trust to the topic. He not only viewed sudden deaths for three and a half decades, he also spent two year in nursing homes studying the experiences of terminally ill patients. Some of the main topics discussed in this book include: Reincarnation, Suicides, Beings of Light, Typical NDE situations, Main Religions, Past Lives, New Age Consciousness, Freud & Jung, Spirits, Astral Travel, The Kundalini, Esotericism, Pantheism, Relativism, Popular Culture (movies, etc.), Current Cultural Phenomena (still seems very relevant even years after publication), The Education System, Unexplained Phenomena, Demonic Possession, Demonic Oppression and The Fight between Good and Evil." Source and other interesting information: http://www.amazon.com/Hell-Back-After-Startling-Evidence/dp/0785275347 I think this book could bring some answers to the question.
  • The answer to this comes from another question: - What did it feel like before you were born? The answers will be the same!
  • Well you were not here for an eternity before you were born and it didn't bother you. So when you are not here for an eternity after you die it should not bother you either.
  • I once fainted and just remember experiencing total bliss after...as i awoke i felt like an observer and far detached from the people around me...i wasnt happy to be back...any opinions? lango
  • I once fainted and just remember experiencing total bliss after...as i awoke i felt like an observer and far detached from the people around me...i wasnt happy to be back..i hoep death is that blissful... lango
  • Probably like you're dying. ;)
  • I can’t imagine it feeling ok unless you planned it, my guess is that it happens quick and slow, but I will not know because I have got no experience in this field.
  • I am not qualified to speak on this topic. I have no recollection of ever having been dead. But being unqualified has never stopped me from throwing in my two cents before so why should I let it stop me now. All I have to go on is reason and common sense. So lets look at it logically. If the question is what does it feel like to go from being living to dead, then I am sure all of that stuff about euphoria, visions, letting go and what not is probably pretty close to accurate. I am sure some folks find the experience quite suprising. But, what about after the body is really dead, as in "there ain't no comin back dead"? We know that when the brain is not processing there is no feeling. And it is pretty safe to say that when you are dead, the brain is not processing so it stands to reason death is the absence of feeling/thinking/experiencing, etc. Probably you can get a taste of this feeling by downing a couple quarts of good whiskey. Presuming you don't actually die of alcohol poisioning, it is pretty safe to say that when you wake up, you probably won't recollect feeling anything at all. So probably the only interesting question is what does it feel like just before death?
  • Om Shanti OM
  • I would think that death feels just like falling into a deep sleep. You dont even realize that you're dead unless it was a slow death. I believe that if its a spontaneous death, you as a spirit would still think your alive. Mayebe thats why people say ghosts exist. The ones that never had the chance to comprehend that their time was up may be the ones roaming around til this day lost in time.
  • Hmmm.. My guess is it should feel similiar to the day before I was born.
  • lets look at what death is: the opposite to life. you were once in this state before. before you were born. how did you feel before you were born?
  • Like death
  • I'd rather not find out, thank you.
  • I imagine it must be excutiatingly painful, seeing as all of your millions of nerves have to die. But once dead- nothing. The absence of perception and reality. Whether there is an afterlife to look forward to- I think not, because if we are able to prove it that means it is fathomable, which I imagine would not be possible in the minds of men. Does that make sense??
  • Cold and bony, judging by all the pictures and Woody Allen movies. As for dying ... well, assuming you're dying from something cutting off blood and/or oxygen to the brain (and not from something that destroys the brain instantaneously) I assume it's a lot like passing out, except possibly with a lot more pain and terror thrown in... at least until oxygen starvation starts to take hold.
  • I would presume that the way you expierience the process of dying depend on "how" your dying.... I mean, lets say you are drowning/bleeding out/suffocating... then yes, your brain probably goes through the stages of shutting down thereby releasing chemicals and firing of neurons in turn cuasing the different visions/feeling ect... On the other hand, if you die in some horrible way such as a gunshot to the head or some other form of EXTREME head truama in which case all the brain matter is essentially destroyed, then you probably have NO clue what even happened... In my opinion I don't really want to know its happening, I think that would be some scary stuff...
  • Personally, I have died 43.780 times. It always feels the same. Usually pain followed by no pain. Then the lights go out. Long tunnel followed by someone appearing who seems to know me, or who I seem to know and feel comfortable with. I feel tired but excited about being home. So nice to be home. The guide usually takes me to the presence of others who I know or have known. It's a very happy and comforting experience. I then feel an urge to find my group. But first there is a time when I must "bathe", regenerate so to speak. The light of regeneration is awesome. It takes away all the fatigue of living. Then I return to my group and it's very exciting. School resumes.. Back to the drawing board so to speak. After a "time" I am enouraged to plan the next life.. It is sad and scary, but also exciting. My guide helps me as do the members of my group. It starts all over. It never ends. Over and over we live forever with something new to learn. Thats just the way of it. Enjoy!

  • just like an out of body experience!
  • why would you want to know that? I don't want to talk about it. I was going to answer your question but I can't it could be fetish or some thing it is nothing you should want to concern your self with. Now what if something were to happen to you, I would not feel good about it. So I will not participate
  • I sure hope it is relaxing. I would hate to go in a panic.
  • Like when you are born, nothing but it amounts to alot...you only know this if your soul is old enough. May I suggest the tibetian book on living and dying...be prepared and you will be happy when death approaches...I've been with several people at their moment of death, due to my profession, I always open a window, even just a crack...the soul is alive and the body lies lifeless, it is all ok, the way it is meant to be.
  • If death is preceded by unconsciousness, I expect there is nothing to feel, cause you can't feel anything when you're unconscious.
  • i had a dream i died. it was vivid. i was sweating and i was suffocating. my heart was stopping. it wasn't exactly painful, but i felt a release. it wasn't good or bad, it was just a strange feeling. then i went to Heaven I think. that was when i felt peace. it was the most vivid dream i have ever had. the way the dream ended was that God told me to go back to Earth and so i did. i landed in my bed. the next few days after the dream i was tired and didn't talk much. i wasn't thinking much of anything. then all of a sudden i just snapped out of it and went back to normal.
  • I'll tell you when I experience it!! Wait a minute...
  • well..... the feeling of death. even if you have had a near death experiece you can't say you know that answer. The only people that can answer are the ones the are past at this present time. To truly know they need to reveiel the feeling while in the state of 'death' :(
  • The only people that can truly answer this question are the people in a state of death. Not even people that have had a near death experience can answer, you need to be deceased to answer this question. Which is impossable unless you can communicate beyond the grave. :(
  • Well, since you asked what 'death' feels like and not what 'dying' feels like, I would have to say that death feels like sleep. Ecc 9:5 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all
  • I have been stabbed and even though i never died, i can tell you what the pre death sensation of being stabbed feels like. First you feel a sharp pain and then a stinging sensation mixed with shock. Then you feel dizziness and disorientation. Then this cold feeling starts in your feet and travels up to your head and at that point i lost consciousness. I don't remember feeling anything else and i woke up in the hospital. I had not died but was close to. The only pain i felt after was around where i had been stabbed [just below the kidney] and it felt like my skin was stretched, it was a weird sensation. So, although i do not have the knowledge of what death actually feels like i can say i don't think after the initial process has started [ie, the loss of consciousness] that you are able to feel anything. As for what may be after life, i will wait and see. I have a life to live here first.

  • While I was looking for a an answer to the question "What happens right after you die?" I came up with a new one. It's actually a kind of a religious question. We'll use Christianity and Muslim religions for example. Christians believe that after they die they go to heaven and praise God for all of eternity(essentially), and they KNOW that this is true. However, Muslims believe that when they die that they will be taken to their own "heaven" where they will have X amount of virgins waiting there for them, and THEY know that they're right. So, I guess what my question is, who is right? How can a christian convince a muslim that his beliefs are correct? How can these two religions be 100% true? Please don't give those simple "It's what you believe answers" I'm looking for a good, deep and logical answer. Thanks. =)
  • I don't know guys,but whoever died and came back to LIFE, is a blessed person,indeed.
  • It's scary to talk about, but I have no clue what it fells like and I don't want to.
  • I've never had a near death situation, but I picture it being just, as soon as you die, everything goes black... like when you're blacking out, after that i have no clue what happens
  • probably sucks to be honest w/ you
  • Like peeing your pants. You don't want to but it feels warm and good to just relax and go.
