To quote. . .Gah. . .someone. . .Better to live for God and find out there's none than to live without and find out there is.

I believe it was worded a bit better, though.

Killing is easy once you forget the taste of sugar
I don't fear death, and I plan on enjoying life my first (and only) go round, so there is no need for an afterlife or reincarnation or any of that religious bullshit.
Okay then. Have fun with your dirtnap.

I just don't get why people get so steeped in their religions when, if you trace it back far enough, their ancestors probably joined because of the promise of an afterlife and forced it on their kids, who forced it on theirs, etc. etc.
Wow.

Go to a museum or something.

If it was an endless cycle of ancestors passing it on to their kids, then where did the story originate? Two stoners thinking how awesome it would be to make themselves and their families follow strict moral guidelines to avoid eternal punishment? Oh that's so funny. I totally get it now. I can see why they went through all that trouble. And died for their beliefs. Ahaha.

My own death scares me too, but not that much; the worst thing is, that I have no idea what happens after it. :/
It would suck to be surprised, wouldn't it?

You have 60 years ahead of at least.
Please. No one is guaranteed another moment.

every person has their time who knows how long will we live in this world so my question is what do you think? do you believe in heaven and hell?

Okay you guys knew I was going to eventually post right? :p

Well here's the thing, I believe in heaven and I do believe in Hell. Now before you jump the gun, I don't believe in the heaven and hell that is widely accepted as a common belief.

I believe heaven is a place where God and his heavenly creatures abide. A spirit realm that is organized and structured well. A government that is constantly on the job preparing for the future and dealing with the present. I do not believe that all good people go to heaven when they die.

As for hell, I believe in the hell that goes by other names such as, sheol and hades. This is also known as the grave. A place where humans are buried "6 feet under." I do not believe in a place of fire and brimstone where people are tormented for doing bad.

As for death, there are a few things that I do believe. I believe that when humans die, they go back to where they originated from - the ground. I do not believe in a soul that survives the body and I don't believe in any "spirit" afterlife. Now I do believe that we have the hope of a resurrection, a time when we can live again in perfect human life on earth. However that's being brought to life again, not being dead - and alive at the same time.

Okay that was a brief synopsis of my belief.

I think there's a thread like this in Religion. With a poll. As for me, we'll see when I die.

Yeah, there was a thread like this. Quite a few I'm sure. :/

I of course, being a Christian, believe in... a purpose beyond this life other than being born, living, and dying.

Amen. Now when I say amen to that, I say it because too many people live for today not considering the future at all and what we do now that can affect our fate after we die. Now I know we have slightly different beliefs, but the principle still applies.


when I die, I'm put into the ground.

it's that simple.

I don't fear death, and I plan on enjoying life my first (and only) go round, so there is no need for an afterlife or reincarnation or any of that religious bullshit.

Hmm, the Bible teaches the same thing, that is, that we go to the ground and rot when we die.

:D!

I just don't get why people get so steeped in their religions when, if you trace it back far enough, their ancestors probably joined because of the promise of an afterlife and forced it on their kids, who forced it on theirs, etc. etc.

Well, not all religions teach of an afterlife and religion isn't always forced on people. Some people genuinely believe what they have as truth and not just as a comfort tool.

Actually, I say fear death, because it makes us want to live longer, plus it's a pre-programmed survival instinct written into all of us, and it makes us do more and better with the time we do have.

True the Bible actually says that very thing, that programed within us is the desire to want to live forever, or at least for a very long time, to want to accomplish as much as we can and see as much as we can see.

Seriously, why do teenagers here worry about the end of their life? Come on, you have ALL the time to accomplish what you want. But you're gonna have to work on it now!

Now I'm half and half on this, I wouldn't advocate morbidity and tell all the youth to think of death, but at the same time, the older ones shouldn't tell the youth not to consider death.

Death can come at any time in a person's life. So why waste life? Even at a young age we should strive to do a lot and accomplish as much as we can. Live and enjoy life with no regrets. Time and unforeseen matters befall us all.

I just don't think death can end well. No matter what your beliefs. Except reincarnation. That one would be okay.

What if you die and then later are brought to life in a perfect life free from the problems we see in the world today? I don't see that as a bad ending/beginning.

Unless Odin, Zeus or Allah is the real one, in which case, see you in hell, buddy!

That's like playing a paintball game without pain or losing (i.e. boring). We humans can't appreciate the good things in life without the bad.

I read this recently and found it very touching and insightful:
Roger Ebert said:
He spoke about his Judaism, which he took very seriously. His parents
had started one of the early synagogues on the North Shore after World
War II. "I had a lot of long talks with my father about our religion,"
Gene told me. "He said it wasn't necessary to think too much about an
afterlife. What was important was this life, how we live it, what we
contribute, our families, and the memories we leave." Gene said, "The
importance of Judaism isn't simply theological, or, in the minds of some
Jews, necessarily theological at all. It is that we have stayed together
and respected these things for thousands of years, and so it is
important that we continue." In a few words, this was one of the most
touching descriptions of Judaism I had ever heard.

That's basically my take on the whole thing.

Honestly, I don't know what I think about the afterlife anymore. I don't think about it too much, I'm more concerned with the life I have now and making it a pleasant experience.

I think this is the right direction, too. The Siskel quote really takes a jab at the sense of "reaping rewards."

I believe that if you go to Heaven you have the option to be reborn but if go to Hell you're dead forever.


But that's just what I think. You'll prolly think it's stupid
