    Not only do I believe in it, I really hope there is one.

    From someone who is able to see ghosts, has a high level of empathic ability yet does not believe in religion or any of that doctrine of such existence of a 'god', I am somewhat torn on the subject.

    I hope not. Like everything else I hope for though, I'll pro'ly get screwed there, too.

    I don't think so, no. Truth be told I hope there isn't. When this is over, I would like it to be over over.

    I have to agree with your assessment.

    I'm in the same boat as Leif---I've had experiences with spirits, but I'm agnostic so I'm not sure if there is an afterlife. Would be interesting if there is though.

    Life will go on after I die, it just won't be my life.

    im agnostic, if there is anything i think maybe recarnation is the only possible thing. heaven and hell are just to illogical for me - there would be millions of spirts / people / pets etc. there. i dont know if id be happy if i found out id actually get to 'live' for eternity either

    Heaven would be the very definition of hell... boring.
    Nothing could ever change: either it is perfect bliss, or it needs to change to become perfect bliss. If it needs to become perfect bliss, then it isn't heaven. Once at the state of perfect bliss, any change would be leaving the state of perfect bliss... so one couldn't change or it would no-longer be heaven.

    All the time... endless aeons... minute after minute.... week after week.... decade after decade.... Always... forever... the same.

    Thanks, but no thanks...

    It (heaven, nirvana, some magical kingdom... ) doesn't exist - at least, it doesn't exist as advertised. Just my opinion.

    Yes I do and my wife rejoined the divine almost a year ago.

    That left me alone until I can rejoin her, which is all I want out of life now. Of course I also accept that I could be wrong and that there might be absolutely nothing. Well then I want out of life too cos it was only meaningful with her in it.

    I can see why people would believe in it.. But not me. I believe there is something greater than us, but it's not what the Bible or any religion says to be.

    I have no idea what happens after death... so I can't say for sure. I'm agnostic, and I have a hard time buying into most religious beliefs, but I don't discount the possibility of some sort of higher power or alternate plane of existence. Human beings are made up of energy and matter, after all, and that energy and matter still remains a part of the universe after we have passed. True, it's possible that we simply cease to exist, but I've experienced things that cause me to question that... certainly not enough evidence to make a positive conclusion one way or the other, but enough for me to keep an open mind.

    Yesterday when i tried to kill myself with pills and alchohol i fell asleep and when i woke up, for a moment i thought that i was IN the afterlife, it was quiet all around me and all i saw was my white cealing, i thought to myself "Is this it?So there really is a life after death." But then i realised i was in my room with an empty bottle beside me. I really felt good at the begining though, knowing for a moment that there is an afterlife felt really euphoric, i hope it really is true

    I'm really not sure I like to come up with my own theories, none that I actually believe in but it's fun thinking about them and imagining what it would be like to experience them.
