AFterlife

One thing that keeps me believing there could be a god (i'm an agnostic) is the fact of where we go when we die. I've been thinking about it since I was a small child (hey, i'm an open minded guy!) and just can't see people sleeping forever, you wouldn't have dreams or anything. It's impossible to make the mind feel as if it just isn't there. I have come to teh conclusion that I think we fall asleep, in a way, then wake up in our new body with our newmind. Thent hat makes me afraid because I don't know if I want to lead another life, but if I don't remember my old one then how could I be afraid? They say birthmarks are signs of a past life injury, I think as we continue to resurrect in new bodies they will eventually disappear, then we will be in a state of nirvana. Okay I don't nkow what I think about that, but it's pretty neat sounding! So what do you think happens to us when we die?

You go where you want to go your soul's energy takes you where you belive.

Re: AFterlife

In a ideal world everything the thread author said would be an ideal scenario. It would be cool if you went on existing and existing but i think we just cease to exist. I know that sucks.

Even if it was true that you kept on being reincarnated as something or someone what would happen when the earth ceases to exist in 6 billion years time?

Re: AFterlife

I think that, though our bodies perish, our true selves live on. I DO believe that we all have souls--it doesn't make sense for us to be here if we were just going to eventually become rotting corpses, just, non-existant.

All I'm going to say is what I just said, and this; even if we do live on after our bodies are long gone, I can't say exactly WHERE we will be. If a person ever dies, and ever manages to somehow send the human race proof that there is a heaven or hell, the, well, great. But for now, I don't believe in it. =P

Re: AFterlife

The only thing that puzzles me, is billions of people have died, and there's not one clue to where people go. Not one clue at all. That just astounds me.

There's a lot of alternatives, so I can't exactly say what happens to us when we die. We could go to heaven, we could be reincarnated in another body, or we just keep dreaming for eternity. Maybe we dream for eternity, until Jesus Christ raises again, and that gives truth to teh Bible. Or maybe we just lay there. I have no idea.

But it surprises me a lot that we don't know after all these years.

Re: AFterlife

I have a friend who's an atheist that just thinks we quit existing, I don't like to get into arguments with him about things like that, it wouldn't help either of our cases, but he really just says there is no proof there is a good, then I say, there's no proof there isn't...

Re: AFterlife

i wuld hate to get into an argment about that, coz really, untill we, we jus simply dont knoe the ansa to this question...but i like ur comebak...'theres no proof there isnt'...i bet he dusnt have a too flash comebak to it, coz once thats sed, there really is no proof of an existance or no existance after death, and to think that there isnt, is jus creepy to me

And does it make sense to live on forever?

Re: AFterlife

It seems like a more reasonable idea than just laying there for the rest of your life, and being wiped off the face of exsistance.

Re: AFterlife

I don't think so... If something is too long it loses its meaning, to me... Short and intense things for me (:

Ha ha, well said. It's really surprising--so many people die every single day, you would think that maybe just one soul could send us signs of an afterlife, a place beyond earth.

I know that when I'm dead, all be sure to let everyone know what hangin' out after death is like. OH, and maybe send some real proof as well of any God or whatever's "up there." That is, if I actually end up there...
