    That was what I thought and was about Calvin’s age when I found out. even then I felt very bitter about it.Starting the1. "why isn’t this bird moving?2. Will you die Mama?3. Will I die?and all the normal rejecting and tears.May even Said out loud, What’s the point of that.Later I got what I consider “proof” of an afterlife in the form of a very realistic vision.

    So, what’s this? The religionists and the atheists all think they have to preach to us in the comments?

    Nobody of any TRUE Chrisatian faith tries to impose anything on anybody. We TELL people about Christ (what we refer to as “witnessing”) but we totally respect another’s free will that God so graciously gave us.

    The point of leaving is what you make of it. If we’re all going to die sooner or later, might as well do whatever you can to make the world less miserable.

    He said

    “I went skydiving

    I went Rocky Mountain climbing

    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fumanchu

    And I loved deeper

    And I spoke sweeter

    And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying”

    And he said

    “Someday I hope you get the chance

    To live like you were dying”

    Back on New Year’s Eve of 1963, I was 8 years old. I remember crying silently in bed that night because the year was changing from 1962 to 1963. I was very sad because to me time was passing and nothing was ever going to be the same. My life was not changing, just time was moving along with or without me. I also had seen lots of meanness in my little world and I decided that no matter what I would be nice. As I grew older, being kind has always been my thing. I think being kind everyday, doing kind things and making people smile is one of the best feelings. It has nothing to with whether you are atheist or religious, but who you are inside. Just being a kind person and helping others along the way.

    the opposite could also be said, an eternal life would also lose all meaning eventually.

    Even if there is an afterlife, it doesn’t give this life on Earth any meaning. Food, sleep and sex make my time here bearable.

    I agree with Calvin. I’m depressed and see very little point. Also I feel I must add that I’m annoyed by people who think an afterlife gives them a free pass to treat this world poorly. Whatever you believe, leave this Earth in the same, or better condition than you found it.

    Some people wish to live to be 100. Some people wish to live forever.

    They are idiots.

    Who wants to live forever in this screwed up world?

    You need to be educated on how to talk to believers and name calling isn’t on the roster of how to handle it. Don’t be mean unless you want mean in return. Just either make the correction and say nothing or just delete that part and the rest is okay. From one Atheist to another. Be sure to capitalize it!

    It perplexes me often. My mom says to go to heaven. OK, then what?!? What’’s the point of that? You just sit and chill in Heaven forever? What’s the point of that?Reincarnation? Again what’s the point?And so on and so on…
