BIG FUCKING SPIDER
To be honest i hope we start a new life, ive always wonderd what it feels like for a girl.
sometimes i go places and think its kinda un-new to my memory.I hope it doesnt
just end and where not there anymore.

What you think?
Rudeboy
In harsh reality, I think your mind and conciousness just completely cease and you are just not there. We are born knowing only life, therefore the concept of death is unknown to us. No one truly knows what happen when you die. I think it just returns to what it was like before you were born. Its strange to think about death and what will happen when you go. You will not exist in any way, you will not be able to think or feel as you will no longer exist.

That is one explanation, one I don't like. I would prefer it if it was more like in the movies. Where you don't really die. Just carry on somewhere else, far away from the pains of the mortal world. If heaven exists I want to enjoy it, I want to be able to appreciate how it is different to earth. We are all going to die sooner or later, so sooner or later we will all find out what happens.

I was watching Gladiator the other day. Near the beginning, General Maximus adressess his troops before the charge against the remaining army. He approaches the subject of death with a casual sense of humour:

" Hold the line, if you find yourself riding alone through green fields with the sun on your back, do not be troubled as you are in Elysium, and you are already dead!"

I would like to have this atitude towards death, the brave warrior attitude of going to Valhalla and not fearing death in battle. Alas I am not as hopeful as such men right now.

Sometimes it kinda feels weird to be me because somehow sometimes I don't notice it. Like, sometimes I wonder, how did I wind up in this body istead of a billion other ones? Sometimes, I don't notice my brother, like maybe I look at him, and I feel like I see him for the first time. I hope this isn't just me, because I've been feeling like that a lot lately. I don't notice how some people look, I might know them for years, but then later I look at them, and see them in a new way. Is it just me, or is everyone feeling this way?
Redundant
Reincarnation, Seriously, think about it, i believe we have something that passes through our bodies like a conciousness, a dying body passes its conciousness to a newborn close by, the reason we dont remember anything is a new body, new mind, new memories...I truly believe in this.

Of course the Religious belief is that human beings will go to either Heaven or hell. I believe that also. But, I also believe in reincarnation. That we will be put back on earth either as a human, animal, anything else.
BIG FUCKING SPIDER
i dont want to be a animal,especilly a fly,dont they only live 1 day or sumthin
CowPig
The harsh way I believe in is that we just die. It's probably like when you sleep. Except without dreams, as someone said. The thing that makes us who we are is our brains really... and the complexity of them that gives us our personalities. Not a spirit.

For a short while, I DID believe in reincarnation. Right now though, I don't really see any logic to it. For one, it wouldn't even be YOU really... you'd be in a different body, different brain, no memories, or knowledge of anything. It just wouldn't be YOU.

I personally try my best not to think about death and what happens after it. It's just too much of a depressing thought that I'd rather not brood over.

Well if you do reincarnate then what the heck, you'd never know in your new body or whatever. And the same with just "sleeping forever", it's not like you'd be bothered, you're dead. Heaven's a nice thought, but not very realistic IMO, I'm not a great believer in the guy above.
Meyer Lansky
simple if you been bad as fuck youre going to hell for satan can keep scorching yo ass if you been HEAVENLY your ass is going to live in paradise with ETERERNAL LYFE but this is all goin to happen when the end of the world comes
cuda is your boi
This will never be answered... well, not soon.
I just beleive that, we die and that's it, the end. Like P.I.M.P said, I sometimes have that feeling of seeing something that I already had seen before, I think that has something to do with this subject...

Not that it really matters. If the theory of reincarnation is true, you'd only end up as something else anyway. And if you were a FLY, you probably wouldn't have enough brain power to realize you're going to die. Or that you're even dead o.O

Personally, I've never really believed in Heaven/Hell. The idea is just too far fetched to really make any sense to me. Maybe I'll believe otherwise, but I've expressed to many people my beliefs on religion and the like. Probably not many from here but.. shush! If you were wondering, I don't believe in any religion really. At least not the ones I know about/of. I don't have any problem with someone BEING religious, I just don't tolerate it in myself.

We know for sure that we shit ourselves, massive amounts of DMT are released in the brain, so we die tripping and shitty.

Thank you for sparing me the time to explain it, myself.

And I guess the whole reincarnation idea might be true. It would fit in with all the other cyclical shit in this universe. There's no way to really disprove it like you could with a heaven/hell.
Nanook
You die. You stop breathing. All brain functions cease. You know no more about what is happening.

When you're dead, your gone. No afterlife, no reincarnation, nothing, nada.

Death is the end, don't spend time trying to live for a 'God', or beliefs you don't own, don't think you'll be rewarded in the 'afterlife', because you won't.

Enjoy your life, because that is all there is
GSF_Hustla
It's tough to say really. It freaks me out to think about before or after this life. Was i another life form, with my memory completely wiped from the past life or what? Afterwards, its scary because, maybe you just go blank and sorta fade out. No heaven/hell, no reincarnation. Nothing. Just that seems scary. I do think you get reincarnated though, which is cool, only if you had your past memories would it be better.
old/10
I really believe my brain dies therefore all my feelings die.
mceggy
Feelings, emotion, thoughts and awareness all goes.

It ends, just... ends.
Handsome B Wonderful
I believe that you cease to exist.

I hate people who claim that they were someone else in a past life. They always happen to have been someone important (a king etc), never mind the over 5 billion+ people on the planet, who must have all been their slaves. Thus they strut around like they own the planet. Morons!

P.S I can't recall my sig being that big when i created it. Oh well

Back on topic.

You all have interesting points, Even though there are many different beliefs of the afterlife, I still want reincarnation.

As many stories that I've heard about ghosts, I still think it's all just a bunch of crap. Too many drugs!

Well... logically, there are no "ghosts" or "spirits". Where would they come from? Dead bodies? Pfft. I WOULD say I don't believe in ghosts at ALL except for I swear my grandmothers house is "haunted", and my mom told me she's lived in a "haunted" house before. I think it'd be very rare, though, and quite possibly the only people who become ghosts are those with unfinished business, as I've heard other people tell me.
House
I don't belive in ghost just whish the where real.

I don't want to die and dissapear I wanna turn to a ghost to do something, or at least do something in heaven or hell.
Strike
I believe in ghosts. I also believe that only the people who have not sinned, come back as ghosts.

So, me returning is a no-no...


Pitbull
I believe in hell in a way. I believe that if you die and don't want to go, then you get stuck here, in this world, forever. your just in the air, floating around, no one can see you. No one can hear you. your all alone forever.

As for heaven, you know when you have one of those nights when your just dreaming for hours. i reakon it's abit like that. But obviously you can't wake up or nothing because your body has died.

On the other hand, if it all just stops, then you don't know it anyway so it don't matter.
shibby
when you die its game over plus whats the point reincarnation if you can't remember its not really you then
Mr.Whatever
Reicarnation can't happen and that can be explained easly, when u die, not only u shit urself like someone else said, ur brain stops working, so u can think ohh im going to die, but u will never realize that u are dead, like a thing getting shut down, the whole process of dying are ur only last thoughts if u do take alot of time to die, but in that time u can still think and wonder but that don't make no difference at all since ur dead, if ur brain stops so are ur thoughts, and that's why recarnation can't happen, supose u come back to life in another form, u still can't remmeber shit or know u were someoen else sometime, because u already died and ur just bug food now, ur brain doesn't travel with you, and when u die again after recarnation u can think again wow maybe it';s the 3rd time i died but u will know, when ur saying recarnation, i guess u mean ur reborn, so? the meer idea cancels itself actually.

even if u do know...it won't be u and ur personalty, just suposbly ur "spirit" (redicilous thing), not even ur brain, won't remmember shit, do u even know what will happen if people find out what there is at the after life, people will go crazy either if u cease to exsist or if u get reborned, im talking about chaos on the streets.
This order comes from depsressed people who don't have the feeling to go out and enjoy their life.

Probbably some dick is gonna say, yes it's the US goverment trying to cover the deal with death so that they can control the people....

Harsh, dude. You don't know that this is true, you only know once you're dead, and when you die, there's no one to tell to. At least when you die, you might get something to look forward to - heaven, this way, when you die, you're just... dead. sad.gif

I believe in Heaven and Hell,as I'm a Christian.

I believe their may be an astral plane you rome on until Jesus's second coming,but I'm not so sure about that.

Death confuses me..think hard on this...


Death:When you die,you will be dead,when do you die? lets say a bullet strikes you in the forehead,how long is it till your dead? in it the minute it hits? 2 seconds after? how long after getting in a fatal accident do you pass on?

Just Gone:Imagine if you were to just disappear,like sleep with no dreams,this would be FOREVER,and it wouldnt even be like a sleep with no dreams,you just quite frankly wouldn't BE anymore,and the conciousness of Being is gone,and you can't even reflect on the fact your gone.

Reincarnation:Okay,so your in a new body,you have a new mind,possibly might even be a new animal. You remember nothing of your past life,yet your still are,your aware your alive,but your other lives are completely destroyed,you remember nothing,yet you still are.

I think what most likely happens is when you die,your soul slowly disconnects from your body,and slowly floats upward,to Heaven. If you an unbeliever i think your soul is destroyed and damned for all eternity.

I think 1 of 3 things happen when you float out of your body.

1.You go in a deep sleep,waiting for the day of Jesus's return,in which he will resurrect all of us,just a he had been resurrected,and then will judge us,sending you either Heaven or Hell.

2.The same thing as above,only instead of going into a deep sleep,you wonder the Astral Plane waiting for Jesus to come.

3.You are sent instantly to Heaven or Hell.

Now lets see how i think the afterlife will be like..

Heaven:A beautiful world of peace,being with God,being with people you love,no worries,you have the power to time travel and teleport,the world is perfect,nothing is ever wrong,and you never get bored of eternity.

Hell:I'm unlike others,who think Hell is nothing but being physically injured forever,but I believe Hell is more like this....

1.You will never be happy again,this alone,is terrible.
2.You will lose your mind through stress and worries.
3.You will be thirsty,hungry,and in pain forever.
4.You will possibly be raped,beat,burned,or frozen.
5.You will be eternally seperated from God.

As you see,Hell is not a good place,if you've ever had a period in your life that was full of worries and stress 24/7,to the amount the stress made it so you couldn't live,imagine that forever.

Bag Of Puppies
what happens when I die? I think I'm going to get burried (haven't really tought about that off course)
So my body will just compose over time to minerals trees and other plant will use to grow.
The mind and spirit offcourse die instandly.
Fore those others, who will let themselves get crimated, it will just go a lot faster wink.gif

Think about it.

You don't...

Reincarnation is just a theory people have come up with over time. For some, I guess it offers comfort in knowing that they won't just cease to exist, and that they'll still get to enjoy life as something else. I don't strongly believe in reincarnation, but I don't believe you should be calling peoples' beliefs stupid, especially not on a subject like death.

It is harsh, but it's the only theory that makes sense, how is there another plane, which supports everyone who died (think about how many that would be for a start)

It makes no sense, life is life and after that is nothing.
