sleeping is a kind of death; you're pretty much reborn every day.

No. I do not believe in an afterlife at all.

See, this is the problem. If you do not provide an answer which is not yes, and not no, then someone always comes along and decides for you that it is a yes (with the added bonus of projecting their interpretations of what they think you believe.) It imposes strictures and structures.

Anyway I'm not actually bored enough to get into an argument about this, even though I am very, very, very bored right now.

it's absurd to think that we don't get recycled like every other form of matter and energy in the universe.

well yeah, ultimately the matter that makes up your body will still be around in the Universe, but are you saying the physical principle of matter & energy being recycled extends to abstract conceptual things like the self or the soul?

Because I don't think that they you-ness of you will carry on after death in any recognisable form

ah, ok. sorry to be dense.

so then what did you mean by "we"

you don't have to believe in the supernatural to believe in the inevitability of resurrection technology.

i hope there is no heaven, think i read this in a comic or something but i feel like dying and going to heaven would be like waking up from one of those dreams where you live out a whole day in painstaking detail, only to find that you were asleep the whole time and have to do it all over again

that wasn't heaven, that was the last season of LOST

Philip Nunez, Tuesday, 6 March 2012 01:53 (eight years ago) link

Not at all

No, but, judging from the amount of time I've spent at the graveside of one of my family members "speaking" with her, the idea of the afterlife must still have some grip on my imagination.

Was really hoping more afterlife-believers would open up about this!

I imaghine most people are more like "we dont know either way" maybe? I know I am.

Medical Dance Crab With Lesson (Trayce), Thursday, 8 March 2012 00:12 (eight years ago) link

Oh man, that would be a cop-out. Did you vote "yes" Trayce?

beachville, Thursday, 8 March 2012 00:15 (eight years ago) link

maybe this should go in the "is it racist" thread but there's a bit in michael lewis's new book about irish men believing in fairies, how most of them will claim not to, but if they come across a fairy circle, they won't disturb it, which basically counts as believing in fairies.

whooooops, missed this poll, but add another mark in the NOOOoooooo column. even if there was a god, it wouldn't want people to party for eternity in heaven. it would get bored after 6 trillion years and turn everyone into doorknobs or something.

this is my receipt for your receipt (Z S), Thursday, 8 March 2012 00:32 (eight years ago) link

firm NO + don't trust anyone who does.

I didnt vote cuz I really couldnt get with a yes no answer tbh! :(

Medical Dance Crab With Lesson (Trayce), Thursday, 8 March 2012 03:56 (eight years ago) link

To elaborate: its probably no, but I dont like that idea? If that makes sense. Heaven's bunk, but ceasing to exist gives me great heartache.

Medical Dance Crab With Lesson (Trayce), Thursday, 8 March 2012 03:57 (eight years ago) link

ALSO MAYBE ALREADY WE ARE ALL DOORKNOBS DID U CONTEMPLATE THAT

Medical Dance Crab With Lesson (Trayce), Thursday, 8 March 2012 03:58 (eight years ago) link

I am 3/4 of a doorknob

For some reason I now have "shoehorn with teeth" by TMBG in my head.

Medical Dance Crab With Lesson (Trayce), Thursday, 8 March 2012 05:03 (eight years ago) link

whatever happened to a. nairn

mookieproof, Thursday, 8 March 2012 05:13 (eight years ago) link

I have wondered that in the past. He was inscrutable, which I admired in a frustrated way, like I do geir.
