Do you believe in afterlife? Is there any other immaterial world beyound our material world?
What is the advantage and disadvantage of believing in afterlife?
I believe in reincarnation and the power of our subconscious mind. I believe that life is eternal. Our soul after leaving our current physical body will inhabit another physical body. I think that we can become, for instance, an animal. The whole universe is energy after all. There is lots of evidence in quantam physics that everything is energy. That's why, it is so important to pay attention to what and how we think because we are the creators of our own life. :)
One of the advantages of believing in afterlife is the fact that you are not afraid of death. ;)
We will all cease to exist after we die. ... :( ... The belief in an afterlife is a delusion which comforts some humans because they can't accept their own mortality. The belief in Heaven provides comfort for the religious family who has suffered from the death of its beloved child. When a child dies, its religious family believes that they will someday reunite with their child and get to know their child in Heaven. What really happens to "the souls" of children who die? Why should they get a free pass to Heaven, even if they would have become evil adults who would have rebelled against their theistic deity and devine creator? Why must adults live through the sufferings of this life before we go to Heaven or Hell, while all the children who die always go straight to Heaven?.
An "immortal soul" has never come into existence during the history of human evolution. Who were the ape-like human parents of the first human who acquired an "immortal soul" which will be rewarded with eternal life in paradise or will be condemned to Hell forever by their devine creator? Why did this theistic deity who is the devine creator not give them an eternal soul and care about them like their child who had been given an "immortal soul" that will be sent to Heaven or Hell?
I don't want anybody to have false hope for immortality in paradise, nor do I want anybody to worry about going to Hell. I simply want everyone to prosper and live as long as possible in this life and world; it is the only life and world that we mere mortal souls will ever have. Please, live long and prosperous! ... :)
Jacek, I don't believe in reincarnation. Everybody only gets this one chance at life. However, the thought of being reincarnated is very appealing. I would rather that reincarnation be true rather than eternal life as the same being. It would be very exciting and interesting for my different life forms to experience living as a different person or as a different life form, whereas it would become very boring for me to live forever as the same person. Yeah, floating forever in the clouds, singing songs of praise to feed the ego of the supreme being, polishing my halo and playing my harp would get rather tiresome and boring after awhile. ... hehe ... :P
I don't believe in afterlife but i think, after our dead our spirit leave our body and become something who is inexplicable for human.
I only believe the life now! No matter last life or after life. Now it is more important. Doing something good, it is good the life now and after.
We all have one single goal in life: to be AWESOME!
We keep reincarnating until we achieve awesomness and be in the eternity of the present moment!
Brother, I'm muslim, there's only one thing to believe in. We're all waiting for Jannah, in shaa Allah! :D
i believe that there's ressurection day where all the humans will gather in one place and some will be punished and some will live an eternal life in paradise and there won't be another death
What's the point of living if it's not going to go on and on and on and last forever? - I really don't get that question. Why does something have to last forever for it to have meaning?
I would say a disadvantage is that you don't appreciate this one life, you put things off, surpress your desires. You live for another life and not this one.
We will never die!
