Do you want to believe there is an afterlife? Then yes there is an afterlife?
Do you want to believe there isn't an afterlife? Then there isn't afterlife?
Believe want ever you want to believe, as long as keeps you happy and contented.
To me an more interesting is why you are asking? Since the moment you were born, you were destined to die, by some random chance you have a long existence. Organised religion to me, are all about power, money and control, or obfuscating access to certain knowledge. Some time in ancient history some monkey spotted the regularity of the seasons. It though I shall mark the shortest day of the year (Winter Solstice) with a banana eating party (and do the things that banana eating parties lead to), Some other monkey thought I'll plant my corn on this day. Etc. Etc. Later on as the Monkey population grew a more powerful Monkey, though we need a way to teach the seasons, I know create some imaginary monkeys and tell the other monkeys of their exploits, Then some Monkey thought of the concept of basic currency and some other jealous monkey want more of it. It thought I now I'll create a "protection" group to protected and coordinate the other monkeys (state) and I'll charge them a fee (alms / taxes)..
