Whoever said that is full of it! A lot of species of animal do know something's happening when they're dying or if something/someone else is dying. They might not actually understand what death is to the same extent we do, but they sense it. Have you ever heard of cats/dogs wondering off to die alone? Or even vultures circling around animals that are about to die?

When my dog passed on, she lifted her paw up towards me & my mum just moments before she left us. It was almost as if she knew she was going and that was her way of saying goodbye :(

Cheers Boner, I half thought it was a film quote... perhaps I should have turned it into a whole thought.. :)

Friend of mine,once asked his local vicar if there were animals in heaven.(his dog had sadly just passed away :cry: )

The vicar replied"No,god only gave souls to man,only he can sit in the kingdom of heaven"

My friend,simply replied"In that case,i don`t want to go to heaven.sounds like a horrible place"

Allways found that to be very moving........

I wonder if they have Brut in the afterlife? Otherwise you'll have very smelly spirits no? :D
Brut... the scent of the Gods!

I can't believe Brut is still going, my mate has a bottle, when we were all out down the boozer last week when he came in I thought.. mmm I'm sure I got a whiff of Brut then.. nah must be me just showing my age.. but when we pitched up at his gaff later to carry on boozin there it was in the bathroom! I do like the whiff of it.. though as I liked Blue Stratos, Tabac, High Karate and Old Spice, I'm probably not in a postion to judge aftershaves.. :)

Oh and I'm sure they do use Brut, cos they have to "splash it all over".. ;)

I wasnt aware of animals sensing their own death but only us humans understand the true reality that we are going to die and we cant do anything about it. No concrete proof, beyond the tales of people who have had near death experiences, exists of a suitable afterlife. then you have other areas like EVP which could either be the biggest hoax of the decade (much like Most Haunted) or a chilling new medium in which spirits communicate.

For what it's worth, I fully believe in a spiritual afterlife.

But then I am one of those weird practising Orthodox Christians.................................

If there`s NOTHING,then someones having a laugh at our expense.Why give us the awareness of fact we are very mortal and make us question our purpose for being here in the 1st place?. :?

Maybe We,as a species really are a small part of a cosmic experiment that someone`s forgot about,or cannot be arsed with anymore.

It`s like,when we go out and suddenly think,Christ,did i leave iron on? i can just picture 2 super beings going:

-"Ere`davros,them primates you set up on that backward planet of yers,you still got `em son?"

-"got bored with `em chief,to be honest,probably died out Few millennia back"

Yeah but it may not sound all that pleasant. A few years ago excavators in Siberia inserted a microphone 4 miles below the earths crust to investigate a sudden temperature spike in the core. What they heard when they retrieved the tape scared them to death. A glimpse of hell that the minds eye simply refused to erase. Seems they captured a scene from hell, with tormented souls screaming in agony. There is no logical explanation for the voices.I thought it was a hoax at first but it does disturb me. At the very least it does provide proof of SOME kind of afterlife. Heres the link. Be warned. you may be disturbed:
