Life after death?
« on: August 26, 2009, 12:39:43 PM »
Since it came up in the discussion at Ted Kennedy's passing, do you believe in life after death, in the traditional sense of our Judeo-Christian tradition?

Nope.  We're all worm food (unless you get cremated).  Sorry.
We are the storm.

I voted not sure although I do in fact believe that we do continue to exist, just not as the individuals we are now.   So I do not think that fits the definition you were thinking of.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark;  the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

That would be correct Sparky, and how I would have anticipated your honest response.

Why thank you cougar.  I appreciate the observing that I am an honest person.

Nope.
We get one go around through life and then we are done, thats it.

Now heres what really gets me.  I can understand people who believe in an afterlife because obviously thats an appealing though.  But people who believe in reincarnation???

Those guys are just nuts.  If everyone were being reincarnated wouldn't you yourself actually be someone else?  Thus it would be impossible for you to be reincarnated.

A couple made a deal that whomever died first would come back and inform the other of the after life. Their biggest fear was that there was no after life. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die.

True to his word, he made the first contact, 'Ivy ...Ivy.'
       
'Is that you, Richard ?'          

'Yes, I've come back like we agreed..'

'That's wonderful! What's it like?'

'Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex... I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course.  I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens) , another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again. Then it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again.'
           

'Oh, Richard you surely must be in Heaven!'



'Not exactly ... I'm a rabbit on a golf course in  Arizona .'
Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.
