This is so unreal...of course I never personally knew him, but he seemed like a truly awesome human being. He provided me with many hours of entertainment through this site...so much that I did put forward money to get as much of it as I possibly could. My deep condolences to everyone at giantbomb, all his friends and family...I've never had the experience of anyone close to me dying, though I know that day must eventually come...and if I am so upset by the loss of someone I didn't even truly know, I can't imagine the pain for those who did. Goodbye Ryan. You will be missed.

So, first of all, I'd just like to say I'm not religious in any way, and i do not personally believe that there is an after life, but a couple of things. The people saying anything along the lines of "there is evidence that there is no after life", no, there is not, shut up. I don't believe there is, but really, we don't know either. No one really knows what happens after death, and though i believe we just rot, there is certainly not "evidence" one way or another. In answer to the question, i already don't believe there is an afterlife. If i had absolute certainty there was not, i don't think it would honestly change much, other than the fact that i would most likely be stupidly wealthy or murdered by a religious group.
