This Rich Guy Will Give You $500,000 If You Can Answer One Question For Him

You don't need to be a genius or a scientist to answer this question, but you need to be convincing. The question can be answered by anyone.

There is one question that still doesn’t have a definite answer for all people of different religions and ages: Is there a life after death? If yes, what happens after you die?

We have entered the 21st century for over two decades now and this question still challenges humanity and reminds us of what we actually know as well as what we take on faith. While some of us just accept with an answer and explanation closest to what we can relate to, others desire to find the truth, so much that they are willing to pay a pile of money.

Las Vegas businessman Robert Bigelow offers nearly $1 million to those who can convince him of what will or will not happen after a person dies. Recently, Bigelow expressed his own opinion regarding the question. However, through his Bigelow Institue for Consciousness Studies, the real estate investor is seeking entries for an essay contest. According to the institute’s website, the goal of the competition is to “is to award contestants for writing papers that summarize the best evidence available for the survival of human consciousness after permanent bodily death.”

In terms of the prizes, the top essay will be awarded $500,000 (Rs 3.62 crore), the second-place essay will be awarded $300,000 (Rs 2.17 crore), and the third prize is $150,000 (Rs 1 crore).

The contest is focused on scientific evidence and supporting documentation collected from sources including:

  • Special cases from credible witnesses.
  • Evidence from the available literature.
  • Evidence from authenticated and highly validated human experiences.
  • Other relevant sources.

The deadline for application is February 28 and that for essay submission is by 5 PM PST, August 1. About the reason for the competition, the institute says:

“Even though all 7.8 billion humans on planet Earth will eventually die. very little high quality research is being conducted on perhaps the most important and fundamental question facing our species.

“There are almost no significant conferences or symposia on this question which could appeal to scientists, academics and others with advanced training. This is partly because such research is not taken seriously by the current scientific paradigm. It is probably time to end this close-minded approach.”

 So, are you participating and win a prize for yourself?
