I think we go on after death.
I lean toward believing in reincarnation.
Probably based on gut feelings based on reading and exploring the meaning of life for about 45 of 55 years.
I have problems with the biblical Christian experience and think that maybe it is a stepping or stumbling stone in our journey towards enlightenment.
I think the fact that we are alive is a message to me that there is, if not meaning to life, at least hope that it goes on as sort of an amusement park ride.
I don't fear hell or believe in hell, my feeling is that the next life will be life. It will probably be full of lessons and growing experiences.
I suspect that we are spirits, parts of God, parts of consciousness, sons of God, Either it gets boring in the spirit world or having a physical experience is a pleasant experience. But we are spirits who take on or manifest bodies and come to the playground earth.
It's like Disney world. Some rides are shorter some rides are longer some are more spectacular some are less spectacular. If you go on the Hamster/gerbil ride your back in heaven in 4 years.
If you take the American Parrot ride its 104 years, the Elephant ride is 70 years, The lion ride 35, The Butterfly ride is 2 weeks, the housefly ride last 15 to 30 days. The male human ride in the USA can last 75 years.
I also think that those of the bible thumping Christian persuasion will probably go to a place like heaven or hell until they figure how to reincarnate out of that. I'd almost bet those of the Republican variety have an appointment with Louis Cypher, which they will probably enjoy. Maybe, their next life will be in a place like Baghdad 2006.
I think atheist that believe in no God and only evolution very possibly will be eternally dead when they pass on and they will be correct of their assessment and prophecy. To bad no one will get to tell them. They would never believe they were missing anything, anyway.
It's got a lot to do with quantum physics and scientist observing matter in 2 places at the same time. I suspect what you believe could be most important when you die.
It's also got a lot to do with the fact that everyone sees and believes what they want to see and believe.
That explains the wide variety of opinions, unless you choose to call it ignorance and stupidity.
