If you could chose..
    #878112 - 09/11/02 03:03 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I have a sort of a strange view of spirituality, but I've always been interested in people's responses to this question. Here goes:


Supposing the existance of one did not imply the exsistance of the other..

Would you rather know for certain if there was a heaven, or if there was a hell?
And why?


Pearly Gates, or Fire and Brimstone?
Heaven
Hell

Kick ass question man, seriously I tip my hat to you!

Life on this earth is how we perceive it.  If you have a positive outlook and have a good karma then good is waiting for you.  If you dwell on the negative aspects then life is not worth celebrating.  And if I'm wrong, then at least your existence was enjoyable :grin:  --I chose heaven btw--

i'd want to know about heaven so i could concentrate my life on getting there... actually it doesn't matter because if i knew there was a hell i'd concentrate on NOT getting there :smile:

I chose hell. That's because I would like to know if I have to stop my lifestyle right now or what.

Good question. I voted "Hell" but then I changed my mind.

If I knew there was a heaven, fulfilling the traditional requirements of getting to it would be enough to keep me out of Hell, if there happened to be one. And I'd certainly do everything I could to reach the pearly gates. I like clouds. And it would be cool to play ping pong with Jimi Hendrix and Isaac Newton.

Having said that, I am as certain as anything that neither exist in the traditional Christian sense.

What if there was only hell and all that were born were damned? Would you choose to be born or would you rather you never existed?

If I never existed, I couldn't "rather" anything.

I'd rather be born and spend my life looking for a cure for Hell.

Or better yet, for death.

If you don't exist, it's kind of hard to say, "Hmm, I think I'll exist now." Unless you mean you could choose to inhabit a human body (like a spirit or something.)

I like the other answer about a cure for death- I think if everyone on Earth knew that once their mortal life ended they'd be subjected to the most intense torture possible for the rest of time, they'd be a bit more motivated to extend the human lifespan.

Of course, that'd also give some real bastards an incentive to kill their enemies.. depends on how you look at it.

heaven, as we call it is nowhere... lets just put some space between the "w" and the "h" in that word and you se that heaven is now...here

and i think the cure for death is realizing that it is merely a change, a transition from one state to another...
