Absolutely nothing. It worries me, sometimes I can almost imagine what it's like, and it's scary.

The problem with death is that you can't know what it's like till you get there, and you can't come back and tell people about it. Unless ghosts exist........

My religion teaches me that my soul will go to Heaven, so I don't worry much about it.*

I have thought about how scary it must be to think that after you die, you're completely unconscious and nonexistent.

* Just my opinion, you don't have to be an idiot and rebuke me for it

To be honest I don't realy see a point in thinking about it. It's not like we'll ever find out until we're there, although it's possible we still won't find out :D

...I had to re-read this like 3 times to try and figure out what you were actually trying to say. Seriously, not to criticize you or anything, but maybe next time you decide to make a thread you could actually read through what you post up and check for spelling/grammar mistakes? Sorry if I'm being too critical D:

Anyways, no one knows what happens to you after death, so there is no definite answer to this question. I'm not a very religious person, and I don't really worry too much about it. All I know is that everyone has a limited time on this earth, and it's too short to be worrying about what happens after death. We'll all find out eventually anyways, so what's the point of worrying about it now?

well, when I think about dyeing, i think about whether ginger or blonde suits me more :D

but when i think about dying, i guess that logically, there is no reason for anything ot exist. So nothing happens. you just go 'poof' the magic dragon

Death is something that should never be put in thought through life, as death is the opposite of life.

When you die. It is a fact that you physically disappear. But as I see it, it would be impossible to hold life in the first place if there wasn't a little supernatural force acting on it. As we know, the supernatural is existent at will and is not part of the universal physics as we know. When a speciment of life dies, the complex functions fail and the electrically and chemically generated consciousness deteriorates into simply immobile elements. However, the supernatural essence still exists because it is not part of the physical universe. That essence becomes a soul and drifts off into the world of the supernatural, which by most religions would be considered Heaven and Hell. The Egyptians considered it the After Life across the River. And so forth. Since all the evidential religious events like the birth of Christ, almost all the human race believes that the Supernatural World is Heaven and Hell. We could be right. But that is just a hypothesis. There is no real way to tell but this is all I could come up with my logic...

Did anyone get that?

I look at it this way: If there is a heaven (although I personally doubt it) I'll probably go there since I don't think I'm that much of a jerk. If there isn't, it won't really matter because I'm dead.

Death kind of freaks me out. :/
Whenever I think about it out of nowhere, I start thinking about how I will die one day, but don't know when, seeing as how you cannot predict death. You can die at any age, and at anytime.

It always freaks me out thinking about that. :<

If you are a Christian, of the religion that goes by Heaven and Hell, than the only way to Heaven is through faith in Christ.

What you said "I won't go there because I'm not a jerk" is called "legalism" and that is a sin.

And most religions are like that. If you want to believe in Heaven/Hell then you can't live passively like you are stating.

I think you become a big ball of energy (ghost) and my other thought is that you do not exist no more and your just like......it's hard to explain but you most likely not to exist when you die no ghost nothing your done it's over that's it for you so enjoy life while you can.

Idiot!

Some people think of reincarnation, some of heaven, some of hell, some think of everlasting sleep, some think of afterlife, and others that I couldn't remember at the moment.

I think we mostly have a choice what happens after death. You can't be in heaven and be reborn at the same time (I think). It's just that we don't have a choice of death. We all have to die.

I like -AdvancedK9-'s little paragraph there. It actually makes a lot of sense.

As for myself, I'm not scared of death. Whatever happens, happens.
If I go to heaven, cool. If I go to hell, fine. If I'm reincarnated into an animal, sweet. If I become a ghost, awesome. If I sleep forever, amazing. If it all just disappears and it becomes nothingness, well.. I guess I wouldn't know any better, would I?

As for my beliefs.. I think the concept of heaven/hell is a bit harsh. Sin is a very common thing, and as often as people do such a thing, more than likely everyone's going to hell. No one is a saint, and no one is perfect. I think the standards for getting into heaven are way too high. Personally, I think that if you're a good person with the right intentions who led a good life and tried to walk on the right path, that should be fair enough to get into heaven. As for getting into hell, basically if you were a truly horrible person who enjoyed the pain and suffering of other people and so on.. then you deserve eternal torment. But I have a hard time believing that after a person dies, they spend the rest of eternity in one single place.
I'm very fond of the idea of reincarnation. I would say based on a person's life, it would make sense for them to reincarnate into an animal that would best suit the person, and once they die as an animal, they become a person again. But.. at the same time this would cause issues as far as the soul goes.
I dunno.. it's a bit difficult to explain. I believe in soulds but only to an extent. If we could be "another person" in a "past life" then we'd have the same soul, correct? Wouldn't you be able to remember that life then?
This also delves into the idea that we go into an eternal sleep. Scientifically, that's not possible. Once you're dead, the brain stops working and the heart stops beating, and therefor you cannot sleep or dream. Sleeping is something people need to do in order to restore the body and to help permanantly store information about everything that happened while you were awake that day or whatever (This I learned in Psychology). REM sleep (dreaming) is to help from a person going literally insane, which is another important reason we need to sleep. And yes, we dream every single night, usually at least 3 times. Each dream becoming shorter and shorter until you wake up.
But I'm getting completely off-topic. The idea of sleeping or dreaming forever, is scientifically impossible or pointless at that matter.

Now, the idea of it all just becoming blank nothingness, like you don't exist anymore, seems somewhat fitting, at least comparing it to arguments stated above. But then, what would have been the point in having a life?

It all just adds up to the whole mystery and the whole point in life. But.. when I start to get into that particular subject, I honestly start to feel like I'm not even real, and that I'm not here. Makes me feel kind of gross, so I'm not going to start getting into it.

That's about all the insight I can put on the subject, though. : /

It took me years to get over the prospect of simply being nothing. I'm still not there. But focusing on life, it stops becoming a current issue.

I don't think there's an afterlife.
For me, death is the end and nothing happens.
It's just like going into a dreamless sleep and that doesn't freak me out.

Seems like a lot of these threads are becoming more apparent. My religion teaches me the whole thing about heaven but there are times where I try to consider every other situation. The one that's most scary to me is just being non-existent.

In an ideal world, reincarnation would be the way to go for me. you decide to be a rapist murderer, so you get reborn as a starfish. You don't do any sinful things and you get reborn as...um...a killer whale? i dunno. My point is - if we got to choose, I'd want reincarnation.

@ Thread maker: Dude, check your commas and spelling. /grammar freak

Nobody knows what would happen after you'd die. Maybe it'll be like before we were born? Not that I'm saying I know how that felt like.
I kinda envy people who believe they'll go to heaven or start a new life after they die, they aren't afraind of death.

I believe it would be just as it were before you were born.

You just didn't exist for a couple billion years, then you popped up, and then you die, and then the cycle repeats. Or just nothing happens.

Since I don't believe in heaven or hell. I believe after you die, you will just reincarnate in either Past Present or Future.

I have quite a lot to say about death, I have a...personalized faith of my own, I believe that once we die, we become one with the universe, you become a spiritual being and whatever physical concerns, like gender, age, and all that you had abandon you, you become a spiritual being and you become aware of every right and wrong you've done^^
As for a "hell" I don't believe there's one, everything everyone does is for a reason, so there isn't anything truly evil, just mistakes people make, that is just my belief however^^

Hah, you know, funny enough...

I have panic anxiety and suffer from panic attacks. And when you're inside a full-fledged panic attack you just KNOW that you're on the brink of death (even though you aren't, of course). And when you start thinking "This is it", you suddenly feel calm "This is it. I guess I can't do anything about" and you start awaiting it

So, I've begin to think that when the time comes (assuming you die of an illness or old age), you'll be scared as hell, but eventually... death will just wash over you, and you'll feel calm

My mom works as a doctor and a corroner, and so does my aunt, and they ofen discuss their work. And sometimes they start talking about death, when their patience (often old people) are about to die. According to my mom and aunt, most old people FREAK OUT they panic ...and then, they just suddenly becomes calm and... whether you believe in the paranormal or not... they start talking to someone in the fashion of "Aha. Okay. Yes." and they they just die

It's odd it's freaky, but appearantly it's a pattern that occurs to the majority of people who die

Death is a part of life...there's no sense in worrying over things you can't control. And no one can honestly say what is truly in the afterlife (if there is one), so I'll ponder that thought when my time on the earth grows short. And hopefully, that won't be for a good long while ^___^

I don't want death to come to me anytime soon. But later when it does, I'll gladly embrace it.
Remember, death is the process of making yourself immortal in one way.
As long as I believe there's god, I also choose to believe that there's heaven and hell.

People, if you want to lead a happier life, then I think you should believe this:
The person who goes to hell will be forgiven one day and sent to heaven evantually, years and years later.
The people at heaven will stay at heaven forever.
It's like an exam where if you pass, you don't need to give the test again, but if you fail, you can give it again and again till you pass.
Also, I think if you believe in the thing that there will be a heaven and always have hope and want to reach to it, you will be happier.
I also believe that you can be sent to heaven even for the smallest of any good thing you did from heart.

I myself too keep hope that one day I will reach heaven. This is my opinion. Laugh if you want to.
