Yes, isn't it?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.
In the same way, people like to imagine that there is a heaven and a hell, and criminals go to hell after they die as a way of retribution. It's more comforting than just knowing that they walk free after a period in jail, or no period in jail, while others suffer because of their actions.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)
...no, I don't. That's a thought I might as well get accostumed to. =)
Because you have too much 'mind' yourself. L:
Anyway, try imagining that you've been wiped off the face of the planet. Nothing exists to prove that your mind once existed, except for your dead body and maybe some copies of that YA book you mentioned you wanted to write. But eventually, those will disappear as well.
So, how long do you imagine being conscious in your deaf, blind afterlife? :p
I thought it sounded quite logical. You need a heaven, so you have one.Yipe, I just realized how dreadfully moralizing I sounded in my last post... please ignore it, I guess I'm technically just a skeptic.
Same here. I think I would become manic depressive if I believed I was would just cease to exist.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.Spoiler:
