      What happens after death is something that science can’t really answer. As an atheist, I think that there is nothing after death, and so you wouldn’t “feel” being dead any more than you had any feelings before you were alive.

      Dying can happen in lots of different ways. Some are painful, some peaceful.

      It’s very common to be afraid of dying, but no-one can tell you what it feels like because no-one has died then come back. Well I suppose some people have been brought round by doctors.
