  • I think life was designed by someone who is smarter than us all. I don't see this life as having much worth if there isn't anything to follow, so yeah I think depending on how we conduct ourselves here will determine our position in what follows.

    I too believe in evolution to a degree considering how old this place is, but someone put it all in motion to start with. Man, as smart as he thinks he is, hasn't even scratched the surface of what is all involved here ..... that's what makes it so cool ...... the wonders of the Universe. A lot of good clues are in teh Bible! .... the time line there is funky, so I don't know how accurate everything is there, but there are some crazy things in the New Testament on how to live a pretty good and peaceful life.

      hi

      Agreed, you can get the gist of the message the baby Jesus left pretty quickly...its called the Golden Rule. The rest is just window dressing, hearsay, fables and dogma.
      "We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties due to reality fluctuations. The elves are working tirelessly to patch the correct version of reality. Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

      Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting '...man, what a ride!'

      • I'm scared of dying - the act itself. I'm not afraid of death. Once I'm dead, I'm not going to be thinking or worrying about anything. It's the few seconds or minutes or () hours just prior to death that I'm concerned about. The fact that I'm not afraid of being dead doesn't mean I want to die. I hope my death is quick and painless. I do NOT want to spend an hour or two at the top of a burning skyscraper thinking things over. Nor do I want to end up in the basement of some phsychotic nutbird with a surgical implement fixation. I don't want to die becuase I want to be around to watch my kids grow up and to experience more of what living has to offer. But once I am dead I will be placed in an oven and my remains will be burned up and returned from whence they came. I don't believe in an "afterlife." I believe once we die we're done. Frankly, I don't find the notion that we live our lives awaiting the judgement of some supreme being who watches over us counting our indiscressions to be at all comforting.

          I take it you have never stared death in the face.
          It is inevitable, and how is rarely up to the individual.

            • You spend your life spreading pieces of yourself (good or bad) into the fabric of society. The sum of those pieces is your legacy, which lives on after your body goes. The fertilizer benefit is a positive too.

                • I like to think that I will will be ovewhelmed and be reunited with friends and family who have gone before me.

                  I do however wonder if its just going to be lights out and thats it...I guess that is why death is the greatest mystery of life, no one knows except for those who have passed.

                  There has to be more to us than this life, I mean look at us...we are so unlike any other living creature on earth...we have cars, houses/buildibgs, space exploration, wars, jobs, education/science, language, beleifs, faith, emotions, music, evil, goodness and so on...I find it very hard to beleive that we all just evolved...were all too weird...there has to be a higher power overseeing us all. oke:

                      Well ...... nobody in this day and age knows that one way or another since we weren't there .... .....and I don't think it's for anyone who wasn't there to judge. ..... at least that's the way I feel about it....



                      One thing is for certain, this life is fading and we are going to die .... so you should probably have your Ps and Qs in order, and be proud of your accomplishments and the way you've conducted your life.

                      • The best man at my wedding died the perfect death, IMO. He was way too young (49!) but went out in a great way. He saddled his horse and rode out with his bird dog to go scout out some new hunting areas outside his granny's old farm. When he didn't come home after dark, his wife called 911 and search and rescue looked for him all night. They found him the next morning, leaned up against a tree, looking like he was asleep. His horse was standing there and his dog was asleep beside him.

                        An autopsy showed an almost complete blockage of his main artery, though he was rail thin and worked hard in the woods as a tree faller. The coroner said he likely started feeling dizzy and faint and stopped to rest. He probably just fainted or drifted off to sleep and just never woke up.

                        Ironically, when we were young he always said when he died he wanted to just take his horse, his bird dog and his rifle and ride off intro the sunset. Lucky bastage got his wish.
