I don't believe in the typical chubby angels and mindless spirits floating on clouds image.
    my idea of heaven certainly DOES NOT include a job.

    I do not want to live after I die. When I'm through, I'd prefer to rest in peace.

    My own beliefs on an afterlife are very similar to Korimyr's. I don't know if it is really true or not, but it makes me feel good. I don't live my life for my afterlife though. I live my life according to what I think is right, whether there is an afterlife or not. I have no idea what would make any afterlife I might go into more or less desirable anyway. If there is no afterlife, then it really doesn't matter if I believed there was one or not. If there is an afterlife, then no one can truly know 100% what that afterlife will be like or what qualifications must be met to reach the most ideal part of that afterlife, so I have to live for what I believe is good right now without worrying about it.

    Re: Is there life after death?

    I believe there's an afterlife. ... Yeah. My latest sort of conclusion is that whoever lives on this planet and accepts the 'job' (sorry, LL) will be angels on other planets with other life forms.

    Sort of.

    Does that make any sense?

    Me, too.
    I think, as in Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire, I'd go crazy after a few centuries if I were immortal.

    If there isn't, you will never know.
    If there is, you will.

    1. The soul is immortal.
    2. A person's fate in the afterlife is self-imposed.
    In other words we are our own judge, jury, and executioner.

    2. A life after death presupposes a soul. There is, however, decently compelling evidence against the existence of a soul. A soul would be, by definition, immaterial. But at the same time, it would have to be capable of interacting with the material world, otherwise, it would have no mechanism by which it could influence the behavior of its host body.
    THis is curious.
    Why do you assume that only the material can interact with the material world?
    Doesnt this very much depend on the specific properties of the material and immaterial?
    Further, isnt this based on your understanding of the material world? Isnt it quite possible that your understanding is incomplete?
