    What happens when we die? Do we move on to another existence or is this life all there is?

    No I don't believe in an afterlife, but if I wake up after I have died I would consider it a bonus, but then again if it's an eternal one what to do when you get tired of it. :eek:

    This is one of those things that I will find out when I get there, or I won't. It's nice to hope there is but so far it's not been proven as a fact.

    Yes, I believe in an afterlife. I've done a lot of reading on that subject, and I'm convinced.

    I'm a little nervous about where I might wind up, however.

    I'm confident if there is an afterlife I will be in a good place and that is the beauty of my belief system.

    I take the view that I started as nothing and will end as nothing, so I'll see if I can enjoy the bit in between. I wouldn't, however, recommend any of my organs to anybody. Not that I'm against organ donation, far from it, but I suspect mine are a bit too used to be of much help.

    I wonder about what I would do for and eternity too....as I have a few days when living life on this earth seems a bit to long for me.;)

    Yes @Babs Hunt I have had moments when I can see becoming tired of this life a real possibility, only fleeting, but if I live to 90 I feel I will have had enough. :rolleyes:

    I read alot on that subject too. There is so many interesting stories on people who have been pronounced dead, but then come back to life with stories of an afterlife that they experienced.

    If I'm ageless in my afterlife that wouldn't be so bad, but old and in pain not so great!

    I am assuming in the afterlife you are perfect, at least that is what I have been told, which is my problem as I dislike perfection, hence my penchant for fallen angels:rolleyes:

    Now afterlife really makes no sense to me because if you died as a baby you really wouldn't even have a sense of self or know anything ...that doesn't seem fair.

    From what I recall when I read about all this stuff in my youth, you exist in the spiritual realm, without a body or a personality, a part of the whole, and to comprehend that is beyond us humans, at least this one :rolleyes:
