3 choices....Yes, no or one cannot be sure.  Or pick a 4th choice that means you come back as a monkey or rabbit when you die.
Ok, stop right there.........and I'll bring back the sun.

I answered 3 although I do believe that part of each of us continues to live forever.  The reason being, I do not believe it is constrained by the personality and memories of the physical body and the majority of those that answer yes on this poll would mean that very narrow and certainly wrong position that they survive as the unique individual that previously existed here on Earth.

So I understand clearly, Coach, you believe that physically our bodies don't go to heaven, but our souls do.  And adding to that, once in Heaven, one will not have recollection of any of their lives or who they were while they were on Earth.

Correct on that one.

No it is a lot more complicated than that.  I believe we become part of a collective and no longer have our individual characteristics, but join our consciousness with that of others.  It is rather complicated but I do not feel we exist beyond this lives as completely seperate individuals.

Not delusional at all Tight_a$$.  Nobody but nobody knows for sure what happens after death and anyone who thinks they do are the ones who happen to be delusional.

I agree with you on the first one, too.  The second thought I guess I can't be sure completely either way.  Since God created us as individuals ( not one single person is alike on the planet, amazing ), I am guessing to the supreme being we might not be lumped together as a group.  Maybe?  Also, we are each held accountable ( aren't we? ) for our individual actions so that leads me to believe we might be individuals ( as souls ) in Heaven, also.  BUT in Heaven, there is perfection and one doesn't worry about sin there, I think.

listening to people discuss what they thinks happens after death is really pretty amusing.

I asked you to provide justification for that obviously delusional assertion that "that they survive as the unique individual here". And you CANT. Can you!

You truly are ignorant tight_a$$, only surpassed by the crazy texas coach himself.  There is nothing delusional at all about believing that when we pass from our bodies we join as a collective consciousness or soul, it is simply my unique conjecture about what happens after death, which nobody can prove of disprove.  The delusional ones are the ones that think they can.  Ahem, like yourself stupid.
