Son: "Dad, is there life after death?"
Dad: "Nope"
Son: "Why not?"
Dad: "Death is absence of life, right?"
Son: "Right"
Dad: "So, ask yourself: is there life in the absence of life?"
Son: "Hmm... True. But this is ONLY true in logic, which is just a narrow part of science, and science itself is just a human construct - narrow part of experience of just one specie in just one tiny corner of vast universe. So, IN RICH REALITY there may be TONS of life even in the COMPLETE absence of life"

What should dad say on this?
