My six year old nephew, whose father passed away six months ago, asked me, *”Do you stop thinking when you die?”*
Tough one there! I gave him a *some people believe*, simple atheist explanation, simple Christian, a bit of ghost stuff, and no dice. Brows still furrowed and concerned. Then I remembered: *”And there are some people who believe that you get your own _planet_ when you die, but it’s _way_ on the other side of the Universe, which is why they can’t talk to us.”* His face brightened up, he laughed a little – and he was back to normal.
How did I do?
