Will someone use a phoenix down on me when I die?

Good grief, fellas. I wasn't talking about his belief that we just cease to exist when we die, but his comments in general. Relax.

@malnin: It doesn't really work that way, y'know. If Christianity is right, for example (and it is my belief that it is), your technique won't work because there's no way to avoid hell except through Jesus Christ, which means you're shunning all other supposed methods.

From what I said above, you can already tell what I believe happens when you die. All straight-up Biblical heaven/hell stuff. No joking matter, imo.

I believe when we die we get reborn as paintings.

I don't believe in any other life beyond the one we are given, so as for what happens either burial or cremation generally.

Worms will eat your rotting corpse or your ashes will just fly away and that's about it. Looking forward... Not...

A number of Christians do not beleive a just God would punish a good person simply because they didn't believe in the 'correct' God.

Most religious beliefs come down to a simple rule, treat people as you wish to be treated. Pehaps this is how Malnin intends to live life.

For more information on living life in this manner, see Pascall's wager.

I don't think anyone was unrelaxed. It was just a good opportunity for a stupid joke.

Yeah, honestly, that's all it's about. Is there a Heaven? Does it matter? If you need to believe in winged ladies carrying you to some invisible kingdom in the sky for you to live a good life, well...okay. Fine. I'm nobody to judge. But it seems to me that anybody who can live a respectable and just life WITHOUT anticipating celestial reward would be much more respectable than somebody expecting the ultimate booty. (So to speak.)

Which is why I'm not personally a fan of proselytizing. (No offense to anyone who does it or loves it, but just as it's your right to feel your way, it's my right to feel mine.) I live a good life. I am a good man. I have strong enough morals that I always know when I'm doing the wrong thing. Sometimes I do the wrong thing anyway, because I'm a human being, and human beings are selfish. But if I do the wrong thing, I feel guilt, and I apologize or otherwise make amends. Not because I think I'll be set on fire for eternity if I don't, but because I'm the kind of person who doesn't like making other people feel bad.

I fail to see how I'd automatically become more righteous if I replaced "I'm the kind of person who doesn't like making other people feel bad" with "I believe if I live a good life I'll get to chill all day on a cloud with a sweet robe."

No just God could ever possibly damn a genuinely good-hearted person to a life of eternal torment. The moment he does so, he is no longer just.

The fact of the matter is that there juuuuuuust might not be an afterlife, folks. But there IS a life. And THAT's where we are now. And THAT's where we'll be accountable for what we do. So it's probably worth focusing a bit more on what we have now than it is focusing on what we may or may not have at some point in the future.

Oh sweet, it turned religious, I just knew it would. Machu rolls up his sleeves

I worry about those who are banking on an afterlife, as it detracts from this life. I KNOW that my time is limited and when its gone, it's gone. I'm comfortable with that, and it gives me reason to enjoy each day as it comes, to the full. And I was serious about being shot into space, that's the one place I really really want to go, and if I don't get to do it in life, I'm happy knowing that I may spend the rest of eternity floating aimlessly through the Universe. That is more fulfilling to me than any rosy insurance policy.

Although I am considering becoming a Buddhist, just in case.
