You can't prove a negative, disphit.
But since you asked, the concept of an afterlife has been around for thousands of years. Well before the Christian religion was founded.
It's just borrowed bullshit, handed down from generation to generation, with a different spin on it.
Christian religions took the afterlife concept and twisted it to suit their own means. Do this, do that, or you won't get into heaven. Give lots of money to the Church, get into heaven. Don't? YOU'RE GOING TO HAYLL, SINNER.
It's a big lie designed to control mankind. It's a bloody reward system. Do what we say, you get into this awesome heaven place. It's better than your shitty life spent ****ing about in the mud and planting turnips, so hop to it, peasant.
Meanwhile the "leaders" of the Church are off engaging in gluttony, incest, depraved sex acts with any wench they can find, murder, theft, etc, etc, etc.
And so it gets handed down, generation to generation, kids get indoctrinated in it, and so on and so forth.
Thankfully humankind is finally waking up and you'll find the people who actually care about getting into heaven these days...in civilized parts of the world...are freaking miniscule.
Heard they don't even have DirecTV there anyway.
