Personally I think its lights out and thats finally. What are your thoughts?

#1 Posted by TheTrueBarryAllen (5217 posts) - - Show Bio

I refrain from final judgement until that day finally comes - I'd like to think something extraordinary happens though.

We're probably just dust in the wind, though.

Im open minded about it, id prefer that something waits for us in the afterlife however we have cycled through so many religions that religion could be mythology

I want there to be, because I'm scared of nothingness.

No I don't believe there is. It would be nice if there was but we're probably just worm-food after death.

I think we're all worm food if those worms are strong enough to get through coffins and tombstones...

Not deeply religious or anything of the sort, but I am one of those "I am infinite consciousness having a human experiance" types. A bit trippy I know, but I love the idea of traversing the stars as some non-corporeal entity who is above the conventional boundaries of life. Worm-food...nah, we all ought to be star-dust

Why would worms have to go through tombstones? They're above groud.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, merely transferred or transformed (hope I got the wording right there), therefore I find it highly unlikely that one's soul, if souls do indeed exist, just turn into nothingness. Not sure about a formal afterlife, though- reincarnation or something along those lines sounds more logical.

Not necessarily as how it's described, but if don't understand how one can think nothing happens.... You think you just die, and bam! That's it? Nothing more to life after death?

I can't not-believe something happens. It's just as crazy as saying there's an invisible man living in the sky that watches all that we do.

I don't understand how after death you just "stop existing" Like seriously, just absence? Game over?

I'm Christian. So that should answer your question.

Yes. Being nothing after you die seems pointless and depressing.

Yes

#33 Posted by mrdecepticonleader (18057 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't. Not seen any evidence thus far to sway me either. I used to believe in an after life and ghosts but I realized it didn't make any sense.

What does this mean? Do you mean you are scared of there not being anything there when you die? Or when you die you simply cease to exist? If we die and that is it we cease to exist. There is nothing to be scared since we can't be scared of anyhthing or anything else.

I am just curious what is meant by this statement.

#34 Edited by silkyballfro94 (1739 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah I actually do. If it isn't Heaven, then there has to be something else and I just know it. It'd be pretty depressing if I didn't believe and I refuse to think like that. It gives me something to look forward to. Have faith viners.

#35 Edited by BumpyBoo (9291 posts) - - Show Bio

@mrdecepticonleader: Well I can't speak for the original poster of the comment but for me that is exactly what is so scary. The nothing. The not knowing. The just ceasing to be, you know? I often encounter the argument of "but you won't even know" or even "it'll be just like before you were born" but I just find that absolutely terrifying. To just wink out of existence and never think or feel again and have no awareness and just....poof, gone. Just like that. Really really scares me.

Nope. No afterlife. You're dead. Sucks to you, but it is true.

Yeah I do; I think there's something more to life and existence beyond the physical realm.

#38 Posted by Superguy1591 (3381 posts) - - Show Bio

Also, Lols at some of you who believe in an after-life--without an proof--solely because you don't want to be bummed out. =D

#39 Posted by catfightfan (588 posts) - - Show Bio

There have been thousands of reports of ghost sightings all across the world for centuries. All of these people cannot be crazy or liars. Yes, I am totally convinced in life after death and that what we do in this life impacts what happens to us in the next life.

#40 Posted by Reactor (2562 posts) - - Show Bio

Nope, when you die, you're dead. That's why it's called death.

You don't stop existing but you do stop SENSING. It's the same as when you go to sleep; body sensing ceases so you become unaware of the physical world. I would say that's what "death" is.

Your entire life is a microcosm of the larger cycle of two-way motion in the universe. The wake and sleep cycle mirrors the larger "life" and "death" cycle -- they're essentially the same thing.

#42 Edited by RealityWarper (985 posts) - - Show Bio

Death is not a new state.
Just a word to fix a limit.
When we die, everything stops.

Yeah I can actually really see why that would be scary. It isn't a fear I share but yeah. I guess in a way it isn't like you just totally don't exist anymore or that you were never alive. I just bear that in mind I guess.

#44 Posted by BumpyBoo (9291 posts) - - Show Bio

@mrdecepticonleader: Yeah it is also a loss of awareness thing? I also fear going mad or getting something like amnesia or dementia, and really it all comes down to the same fear in a way. But hey I think it is pretty cool that it doesn't scare you, and more power to you :)

Ha thanks :)

Getting dementia is something that really scares me as well.To not know who you are... must be awful. Got to see its affect first hand. Just a terrible disease. I know cancer is horrible I am not gonna say dementia is worse than cancer or compare them, but at least if someone is dying from cancer they know they are, with dementia they don't even know. I hope they find a cure for it one day an illness like that, like cancer shouldn't be allowed to exist.

@catfightfan: You would be amazed what you brain can make you do if you believe it hard enough. It's called a placebo effect.

Do you know some people's bodies have gotten rid of cancer when doctor gave them water pills and told them it was a new potential cure for cancer? Our brains are something else.

Before you were born, you had no memory or anything. I think that's what will happen. Darkness.

People ask for proof, but I think this is the one thing that can't be proven, just like you can't see the soul on an x ray.
