What if you woke up to being there for eternity after suicide, I would wish to comeback.

i find the video funny despite its intention to induce fear to the viewer. religion is getting more and more---- ah, I should stop speaking before I end up being attacked by the pious. but the hereafter, i must say, and in my own opinion and belief, is the same to what Definitelyworried defines it to be.

The problem for me is that I don't want to die just to end up in a worst situation. Imagine waking up to God saying ok throw you in to the lake of fire where you will be burning without dying.
I guess when I say it like that it could sounds like a childish story. But if we end up somewhere better than this, I would like that.
But I'm really ok with oblivion.

the mystery of the afterlife is so cruel that it is only known to those who have left for eternity. if there is a "somewhere better than this", I would like to see the rest of you and other human beings end up in that place. but if it's an abyss that awaits us, or oblivion, then I will surely enjoy that. i am not a religious person, and I do stopped associating myself that much with religions. but the concept of heaven and hell is just meant to divide us all more than us being diversified already. so, i'll go with darkness/abyss.

The chances of something being created from nothing are almost imposible, I never seen something appear from nothing right before my eyes.
According to science this is precisely what happened for this world to be where it's at. So the possibility of an afterlife is just as impossible as it is for the world we live in to have a occurred.

It doesn't make sense to us. Why because its beyond our comprehension. I'm still pondering on where the first cell came from. Some believe that it came from natural processes but that doesn't seem right. Others believe some god floating through space put life on this planet but that seems even more outrageous. We don't even know if its possible for there to be nothing. Even the space inbetween you and me has stuff in it (dust particles, atoms, etc.)

There is no afterlife. Hell is here on earth where you can experience all of the pain and suffering your heart will ever desire. As for the second coming it has been prophecies plenty of times and it has never come nor will it ever.

My father died for a few minutes when he was young, and he describes what many people who've died and come back do. He described a very intense shade of blue, the likes of which are nowhere to be found in real life, like a tunnel, and he was going up. He heard his mother cry out to him and he suddenly felt pulled back into life. He felt very peaceful.

My father is Jewish, so he does believe in heaven, at least. I seem to recall reading somewhere that when you die, your brain releases DMT and you hallucinate. If you're a religious person, you will hallucinate heaven or hell, or whatever your beliefs are. If not, you might hallucinate something completely different, or a big black nothing. In any case, your brain and your beliefs seem to be a factor in the afterlife concept. I am agnostic and I was raised by a jew, and a catholic, so I feel I know about both mainstream religions enough, but decided as I grew up that neither of them made any sense for me. That's a personal matter though, and I'm in no way saying being religious is a bad thing. On the contrary, I often envy religious people because they always have the comfort of their faith to fall back onto. Since I believe in nothing, I have nothing. I believe when we die one of two things might happen. One, our souls all go to some sort of cauldron of souls where we are recycled and come back, like reincarnation, but not necessarily as anything on earth like another human, or a cow, or a dog, or a fly, or anything. Your energy might just go towards a star, a planet, a galaxy, a spec of stardust somewhere. Or, nothing. Just nothingness. Pure nothing. No consciousness or awareness. Nothing. You're just gone. Either way it's comforting because if we are reborn, then you get a second chance, no matter what you come back as, and the process is endless. If there's nothing, then you're free anyway, no pain, no nothing!

this is the same as my belief. I find it comforting enough to know that someone thinks the same.

What a dumb and cheesy video. I doubt that a supernatural intelligence would take cues from schlocky horror movies when designing damnation.

I liked the depiction of hell in What Dreams May Come. Hell looks the way we want it to look. In other words, it's an echo chamber.

Stay critical. An opinion is not a fact.

What if you'd CTB by self immolation only to wake up in fire? Would you feel like you lost consciousness and then regained consciousness in fire?

Heaven and Hell and all talks of eternity were invented way before the modern age when people literally had fuck all to do but write Bibles and Qurans - imagine a world back in 0000 - it would be shit!! We are living in the best age so far the digital age - driving exceedingly modern cars and using out smartphones what nearly 24/7!! Imagine a heaven without the luxury of electricity or even chocolate just people wandering aimlessly - women with hairy legs - there wouldnt be shavers - bad teeth - there wouldnt be toothbrushes or toothpaste!! No tv no electricity to play the tv no catch up tv no Netflix just absolutely nothing - Hell is probably more fun!!!!!

There's no god and no hell. While I do believe in an afterlife I think the universe is impersonal and your actions have no repercussions. The idea of a god with his angels sending you to hell makes no sense because authority and hierarchies are human constructs.

At least there's somebody with common sense.
I don't really know who brought up this concept of the 'afterlife' first, in our species. It has the same logic as "a fish riding two bikes at the same time" would

What is shown in that video is not much different from my life. I'd say, that video is basically life for many people on this Earth but without the bullshit to cover it all up... So if I was asked to choose between staying there or going back to Earth, that would be like asking me, do you want to live in hell or do you want to live in hell? My answer would be, none of the above.

Dude, if there is a God who only saves people who were able to live up to his standards from hell, then being here is just delaying your inevitable torture in a lake of fire for all eternity for some years unless you find a way to become truly immortal. But being truly immortal would suck as well because eventually humans will fuck up Earth so bad, living on Earth will be like burning in a lake of fire for all eternity. And then when our Sun starts dying, it will expand and consume Earth so then literally, you will be burning in a lake of fire until our Sun becomes a white dwarf. Then after that, something just as horrible as burning in a lake of fire will happen to you. The list goes on. No point in thinking about this, too much and letting fear take over your life. The purpose of fear is to push you into doing something that can save you from something.
