What happens after death?

Postby levina » Mon Mar 26, 2012 5:07 am

I think this is a more open subject with atheists than with theists, but all the same, if you're religious, what does your holy scripture have to say on this, and do you believe it? If you're an atheist, what belief do you follow?

I, for one, try to convince myself that reincarnation or an afterlife exists, because it's comforting, but deep down I believe that nothing really happens after death. I think that when we die, we're gone. That's it.

What do you believe?

I don't really know. Since I'm a Christian, I believe that there is a Heaven and a Hell, etc. but I like to think about how reincarnation might work as well. To be honest, not knowing what comes after death - or if anything aside from your body decomposing does happen - kind of scares me.

It scares me too. A lot. I once did a meditation exercise where I went on a journey and visited ten places which represented ten different aspects of my life, as I see it. The final one, death, was symbolized as a large, dark stone well that I looked into and couldn't see the bottom of.

So that's kind of how I see death. An endless, black hole. But I guess the only thing we can do is make the best of our lives while we're alive.

Much like I undersstand you do, I don't imagine death as anything but a large, empty darkness: the equivalent to being deaf, dumb, blind, and have no senses of feeling or smell. That's why I basically do what I can to avoid imagining death.

That said, I'm extremely attracted to many of the religious thoughts about an afterlife where everything is better than in this life. It feels like being able to come home from a world that's sometimes ar too large and scary. And from our, the minds', point of view, obviously the minds deserve some kind of afterlife to live happily ever after in. Unfortunately, logic seems - to me - to dictate that the mind exists to serve the body, not vice versa.

In my view, after you die you just don't exist any more. Your mind is just gone. It sounds like you anticipate being conscious after you die ...? (After all, you can't be deaf and blind if your consciousness doesn't exist to tell you that you're deaf and blind.) That's scary.

It is scary. That's basically why I'm a Christian - I need to believe that there is something after death, and that I will exist forever. The idea of mindlessness terrifies me, and I'm basically religious to convince myself that I'll never nonexist (hah, I think I just coined the word :D)

Yipe, I just realized how dreadfully moralizing I sounded in my last post... please ignore it, I guess I'm technically just a skeptic.

Thanks, Multiverse :D I just didn't like my tone of voice (can you have one of those on the internet?), and I figured I'd sound like I was... I don't know, just sort of virtually yelling "I'm Christian!" and following it with a boring "because..."

I'm CHRISTIAN because it's the religion I know most about right now and it makes me happy.

Hay just signed up. I honestly don't believe in heaven or hell or reincarnation for that matter. It feels comforting to have a god when your sad or upset, but I think he doesn't exist. I think death is when people kill themselves off and maybe the cosmos will give humanity a second chance to make it right. Thats just me talking though.
