[LINK] Sean Carroll Against Afterlife

Well, not quite, but close. The debate starts 1 hour after this post is up. From Sean's blog post:

Is There Life After Death? A Debate

No, there’s not. In order to believe otherwise, you would have to be willing to radically alter our fundamental understanding of physics on the basis of almost no evidence. Which I’m not willing to do. But others feel differently! So we’re going to have a debate about it tonight — to be live-streamed.

Note that Sean did extremely well against W.L. Craig (LW discussion), so this should be interesting. His co-debater Steven Novella runs The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe podcast, well worth listening to.
