Well yes, obviously. How many laws do you have to break for your identity and all of your memories to survive, say, a catastrophic plane crash with 100% reliability, and instantly be transported to a better (or possibly worse) place where the necessary expenditure of energy required to "continue to be me" will carry on for eternity without any means of sustenance?

I try not to be too hard on my fellow men, but anyone who seriously believes this stuff is nuts.
