    if you think nothing happens and you can't stop yourself from posting, can you just say "nothing" and leave without the lecture about body rotting,no god, no afterlife blah bllah blah, that's not what i'm interested in..

    i'm curious what different people believe happens after you die... IF you believe something does happen?

    can you explain... not just "yes, we go to heaven".. what do you think heaven is? how do you think it's constructed, what role does god play and do you get to meet him? are other people there?

    if you believe in reincarnation, what do you think happens exactly?

    or do you have another idea?

    Probably the same that happens before you're born?

    there's no "probably" about it as we simply don't know the odds.


    when you were born you didn't exist and you never had existed... when you die we don't know what happens.. but you have existed.

    there's a lot we don't know about the universe, about reality...

    Nothing, it's the same as before you were born or like one of those nights when you get into a really deep sleep without any dreams

    What? Are you insulting my ancient Egyptian religious beliefs? If so then don't expect a visit from my green winged fairy when you die. It's giant dung beetles for you!

    Fair warning given.
    ok it's too late for this.. or early.. if it's keeping you entertained then cool.

    You're digested by bacteria.

    You're basically broken down into small molecules, which are released into the atmosphere, which can then go on to make another organism, and the cycle continues.

    Why do people always capitalise YOU and YOUR in thread titles?

    The most plausible explanation to me is oblivion. Better get a move on curing death!

    i don't know

    i honestly have no idea, i think something happens though... but at the end of the day, if nothing happens then it's not like i'm going to know about it.


    maybe there is something bigger than our universe, maybe surrounding it, maybe separate to it... and maybe a part of us, what makes us us, is there.

    maybe all of this is fake and we are just living a percieved reality and everything we know is false or only stands true in this universe....

    or maybe there is nothing.

    I might be wrong, but I'm guessing OP means on a metaphysical level.

    it's called emphasis. you can't bold or italic in thread titles.

    My beliefs in this area change a fair bit. What happens happens as far as I'm concerned now.

    I can't believe anything happens after death. I used to believe in a heaven or possible reincarnation with our spirit, but oddly as I've become more serious about religion, those beliefs have stopped and now I think death is the end. I think we just have this one life as a journey and I can't see the need for any more.

    I could be wrong though - who knows.

    I personally find the notion of some variation of reincarnation quite intuitive and appealing. I wouldn't say that I think that it's necessarily going to happen, but I do entertain the possibility. When one considers the probably infinite vastness of the universe and the potential multitude of continuously branching parallel universes the concept doesn't seem so preposterous really.
