    Re: What do you prefer after death?

    As an atheist I don't believe there is life after death. Most other atheists I talk to say that they wish it were true but don't accept it because they think it's absurd (as do I)....I actually prefer eternal death. The fact that I think this is the only life you get, that it needs to be cherished, that you only get one time around, only makes it sweeter and more beautiful.
    "I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate the grave evils of capitalism, namely through the esablishment of a socialist economy. A planned economy, adjusts production to the needs of the community, and would distribute work to be done among all those able to work and would gurantee a livelihood to every person." - Albert Einstein

    Like Jamesrage, I think reincarnation would be much more interesting.

    I don't believe in either of those things though. I believe that when we die, it's over, and it's just nothingness after that.

    Sometimes though (especially recently), I wish I did believe in heaven.
    THIS is actually pretty interesting.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I want to come back as some super rich persons pet (cat or dog) so I can be pampered and sleep all day. Maybe someone like Bill Gates, Oprah or Buffet. You know they spoil their pets and so I just wanna keep coming back as a pet of someone rich

    Reincarnation would be useless to me. Unless I could remember all the dumb ass things I did in this life, I'd probably do them all over again in the next. No, thanks. Once was enough!

    Re: What do you prefer after death?

    Eternity is an awfully long time, everlasting life in itself would become hell at some point, even if it were in paradise.

    Upon reading the poll I was expecting to find the "everlasting gobstopper" choice, I did not see it

    You're going to feel exactly the same way after you die as you did before you were born
