    right after you died, how would you honestly feel? I am just wondering because there are at least 5 other religions than your own and if you die and find out it wasn't the 'correct' one would you feel as if you wasted your time? or would you still be okay with it?

    I used to study Physics at AS level. It was a subject I was not really good in, but I did it any way because I felt it was an important subject which would help me get into the university course I wanted (chemical engineering).

    I didn't do well in Physics, in the end. However, I can be comforted in the fact that I did learn some new things which I found interesting, and that at least I tried doing well. It's far better than not having studied the subject or not putting any effort in doing well at all.

    I'm a christian and if I died and it turned out there wasn't a God, either:
    a) I'd be dead and so wouldn't realize
    b) I'd still feel I'd spent a happy and fulfilled life doing my best to love and care for others and have fun.

    It'd be no loss honestly!

    Why not though? You've been worshipping a religion that was fake?

    If it was somehow fake/unreal, it's still the best fake/unreal thing there is as it would have helped and encouraged me lead the best and most fulfilled life I could

    I don't think most people care about the "correct" one. I mean a religious person will worship God in their life and if they get to heaven and they are different from expected who cares? Oh no, God is slightly different. They will still be pretty much the same-the creator of the universe and so on.

    If you get to the afterlife most people will simply say "great, I have eternal life here now" not "oh no, I worshiped the Christian God but this is actually Allah, with no Trinity. Best go back to rot in the ground".

    If there is no God all of us will be nothing for eternity, an unspeakably long time, so none of us have anything to celebrate. You can laugh at someone for devoting a small amount of time to a man made god, but ultimately we will all be nothing but dust for eternity. Thus there is nothing to be smug about-you may have got the right call about their being a God or not but you hardly have won anything or are better off because of it.

    If there is no God you won't be feeling anything at all. Obviously.
