    I believe the spirit leaves the body and goes somewhere else; where that somewhere is, I'm not quite sure. What about you, what do you believe happens?

    I believe our spirit or soul gets recycled. In other words, we get reincarnated. It's the only logical explanation.

    As above I believe we just rot and our mind never regains conciseness.

    I would like to think otherwise but I am afraid that is the sad truth.

    Too much to think about... Me, I'll find out when the time comes. And if all goes well, that shouldn't be for a long time. *knock on wood*

    Being Catholic, I was raised to believe in Heaven or Hell and all that jazz, but it just doesn't make sense when you think about it. It doesn't seem logical and it just sends you into a loop of confusion.

    I'm not completely convinced, but right now I'm leaning towards "we all go to Heaven."

    Nothing at all. We die, our relatives do something they deem appropriate with our remains in order to get closure and that's it.

    We live on in our relatives' memories and in our deeds but as for us, 'fraid this time around is it for us.

    You might want to read those books that I mentioned above.

    They provide some interesting information concerning life after death.

    Personally, I believe that the flesh dies, but our souls continue.

    It's well known that there will be pie in the sky when you die.

    We start aging, we decay-- organs fail.. cellular disintegration.. eventually, death. You cease to exist - humans just cannot deal with this, so they come up with stories like reincarnation, heaven, hell, etc. Basic greed - "What? only 80 years old? I want to live on after I die!"

    Everything 'dies' - the damn Sun is going to die in a few billion years.. so we're not really significant. It's just that we choose to think so.

    It's not just Christians.. every religious person has this 'hope'. Why do you want hope? Aren't you satisfied with your existing life?

    I find it amusing when I see people being lazy or overweight, getting sick, etc.. and then saying "Oh I'll have a new body after I die.. so what's the use in staying healthy?" :rolleyes:
