But which can be pointed to as being much more probable than "waking up"
after being disassembled by fire or bacteria (which cause a complete
destruction of the information content) or "waking up" through
"resurrection" unless you either want to violate laws of physics or choose
to assume we are running in a simulation and "God" (or Aristoi) has a backup
copy of you slightly prior to your death.

The crux of the problem is not knowing that there are laws of physics and
limits on what can reasonably be done in the known physuical universe.  Its
much easier to accept "magic" and and super-universe entitites.
