What do you believe...
    #2952504 - 08/01/04 05:40 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

...happens when we die? (sorry if this has already been done)

I'm an athiest, we rot in't ground and become worm food and well, there's not much more to say about that!

Be interesting to know your views though...

i believe whatever happens does not matter..even if you do just rot in the ground you'll never even know it.however life would get pretty boring if you lived forever and ever.

i used to obsess with the thought of being dead and what would happen when i was about 8 years old.finally i just accepted either way is good.

I still get bouts of being really scared and constantly thinking about death, it was a cancer program that sparked it off last time...it's horrible but thankfully a rare occurrence.

I have this theory that every soul is born again and again until they reach a state where there is no need for being reborn.

I'd elaborate but I'm kinda stoned right now and I can't think of anything else to say.

I believe in life after death simply because of experiance.

I have seen a ghost before and it acted out on the physical world by slamming a door. Also the dog went nuts and one of my friends freaked out saying that she felt a ghost. I informed her that she felt it, and it was indeed real because I really saw it.

It was like a line of stars (centers of light) tracing the shape of a standing human and it travelled from one foot all the way up around the head to the other. He was angry because my friend disrespected a Jesus poster that was in his room while we were cleaning it. The door slammed and I saw the ghost as soon as my friend did that.

The identity of the ghost actually was of my (recently at the time) dead step dad and it was just as tall as him, so obviously, you take alot of who you are with you to the other side. He was also angry about the slanderring of a religious poster which he truly believed in.

So, there is a definate life after death, I know it rather than have blind faith. I'm not being preachy or anything, but this is a GENUIN account of consciousness and more importantly EMOTION after death.

It is my open ended THEORY that when you die, you become a conscious sencing spirit with no material body (definate, I KNOW this). But what happens after that (the journey can't end).

Since I saw the shape of a body being outlined and someone else felt it, I am able to use some philosophical logic to ask questions and make arguments.

Whether or not each cell of your body has a ghost that makes up a multicellular ghost body, I don't know, but it was in the shape of a human body when it showed itself to me.

Now get this, if there is one ghost after a person died, there are MANY ghosts because everyone dies. In fact, there would be more ghosts than living beings at this moment and in the future. It is very possible that these spirits exsist in communities and stay attached to the same groups of spirits they belonged to in life.

I need to really apply more logic to the situation to extract as much truth as possible. Possibly someone else can help?

What do you guys think?

It is my open ended THEORY that when you die, you become a conscious sencing spirit with no material body (definate, I KNOW this). But what happens after that (the journey can't end).

This is incomplete, I was going to write a theory of reincarnation a while after you become a spirit, or you join wil whole communities of dead people and continue to exsist, or you become one with God (my best guesses to post spirit) but I have no real proof of any of them.

You definately are a spirit after you die, this is not a theory. My only proof on that is my experiance. If you think I am lying, just ask why I'd waist my time writing this.

My own oddball theory is that THIS is heaven because spirits don't have bodies, don't have sex, get drunk, do drugs, raise kids etc. In fact there is a possibility that everyone is the same age @30 genderless and bored-to-tears.

The reason I think this is because spirits must be bored-to-tears if they want to meddle in OUR uninteresting lives; I'd have thought they would have more intersting things to occupy themselves with.

There is an interesting account somewhere of Benjamin Franklin being channelled and apparently all he has to do is hang around waiting for a chance of re-birth, interesting huh

Yeah, I think it happens like this:

You live in a human body
You die and become spirit with no body (or a spiritual body)
You reincarnate.

As for the last part, I have no proof of reincarnation

A less likely theory I have is:

You live in a human body
You die and become spirit with no body (or a spiritual body)
You become one with God

Again, I have no proof of the last part

Annother:

You live in a human body
You die and become spirit with no body (or a spiritual body)
You reincarnate.
You live this cycle till you become one with God or you don't need to live anymore.

Again, I have no proof of the last part, but I have a start! The truth is out there, it will be scientifically proven someday that we become spirits when we die. It is this that I am sure about.

The question I have is "Where do spirits go"

Could it be:

You live in a human body,
You die and become spirit with no body (or a spiritual body) and stay that way, never able to live again?

The Great thing is, I guess, that nobody really knows, It's all speculation, smoke and mirrors.

That's like what I was thinking.

I think that about sums it up. Although I don't call IT GOD. I don't think there is any human word to describe somthing like IT. GOD is such a flimsy little word for somthing that powerful.

I sure hope the spirit world isn't like the world is to me when I'm tripping cause all those red and yellow patterns can be just overwhelmingly intense sometimes. I don't want to say ugly but it's just not comfortable at all.
