Life after death?

Posted: Mon Mar 03, 2014 10:46 pm



Hey guys,
I am a christian and i completely beleive that when someone dies and they confess to God and Jesus, they go to heaven. But lets pretend for just a second that wasn't true. What would happen when we die? I just find it hard to beleive you would go into a dark oblivion with no thoughts for all time, but if there was no God or higher power, would that be the brutal truth? Just curious to see what everyone thinks cause i have no idea either.

Thanks everyone!

Well not only would there be no thoughts, there would be no consciousness. No...sentient. Since you wouldn't exist, you wouldn't even know you weren't existing because you don't exist. It's a scary thought to think of an infinite and permanent death, though. It's funny...in our human mental powers, we are unable to have the ability to even conceive in our mind what it would be like for our consciousness to die. When we imagine dying, we still imagine us being buried or turning into a ghost or what have you. But it's impossible to imagine what it would be like for your consciousness--your mental thoughts, your ability to know that you exists, etc--to stop existing. When we think of dying, we still somehow place our consciousness in that equation.
Crazy stuff man.

This is one of those philosophical questions that I think about at 2 in the morning not able to sleep lol. And no one knows, obviously. So I think it's best not to think about stuff like that lol xD no one wants to think about the depressing thought that you will end and possibly for good, depending on your faith.

It is a scary yet interesting thought isn't it? The only problem i have with just not exsisting is that you come all the way through your life learning so much through all of your experiences, just to become.... Well just nothing. Haha but thats why i beleive in a higher power. If there was no religion, there would really be no motivation to be good since you know that when you die you go into a black nothingness. So as a result of no good, the world i think would be anarchy. There would be no moral rules. Everyone would just be fighting to survive. And worste of all... There would be no drum corps!!!!!!!!! :0:0:0:0

I don't think that the thought of nothingness makes life meaningless. People would still make the most of their time here. Either that or off themselves

Thats true too. Ultimately we don't and won't know since it just not the world we live in.

We'll just cease to exist and not be able to think. Just be in a sort of sleep until someone figures out how to raise the dead and bring us back. It's all good.

Someone already has "figured out" how to raise the dead. That's the Good news. :D

Well, I hardly think George Romero actually raised the dead, rather used make up... lol ;D

The way I see it there is as much a chance that nothing happens when we die that something happens when we die. But the thought that nothing happens when we die can be really scary for some people. Although it isn't really a scary for thought for me (I don't know maybe it's because I'm still young) I can completely understand why it can be terrifying for other people. That is why I really don't care what other people think happens when you die, usually it is tied to their Religion and I'm not going to try to force my thoughts on them just because I Think I know more then them because honestly I'm not sure myself what happens when you die, I don't really have a set philosophy on it yet because no religion ties into my views on life and the universe, maybe I'll figure out what I believe one day but until then I don't really care. Basicially I'm saying there is no reason to spend time arguing over what happens because none of us truly know I think we should all just figure out what makes us feel best and live like that because then we'll live happier lives, why live angry or sad when you could be happy? Happiness is self fulfilling.
Dig past the surface of life and you'll live fuller.
