    I think that death is the end . I don't believe in any form of after life.

    What do you guys believe ? Any near death experiences ?

    The end, no consciousness, no continuation. Lots of people can't face that so they believe in God instead.

    Well that's basically what I think but some people can believe in any after death form without believing in any creator god . Like buddhists for example but rebirth in my opinion is nonsense.

    I'm going to say heaven or hell. For me it's not that I can't fathom, or don't want to face, death simply being the end. The thought of me dying right now and having nothing afterwards is not actually scary at all to me. If theres nothing after death, then theres nothing to worry about. If we have to atone for sins, well than thats a bit more worrisome for me, because I've been a bad boy ;)

    What happens to us is clearly unknown. Nothing can be proven, even that there is no life after death. It's all mysterious and always will be.

    I don't force my views on people, nor do I judge the beliefs of others as being wrong.

    I choose to believe in a life after death. The primary reason being, the whole idea of such a thing resonates in my being. I believe there will be a final judgment, our lives will be judged according to our time spent here on Earth.

    I believe death is the end, but I'm not sure at all.

    I don't know what will happen and i'm okay with that. I believe what happens after death is not nearly as important as what happens before death. I believe we should treasure our short time available to others and in the old adage "you can't take it with you".

    I think after we die, er...we're dead.

    (If the Bible is correct, then maybe people will be resurrected some time in the future after Christ's return - some to eternal life, some for death, but most for a proper chance - but I'm not certain).

    I think death is the end. That's it. Done. An afterlife would be nice but it just does not make any sense to me.

    An after-life, like all of the gods over the centuries, are human inventions.

    Kids around the world are brainwashed to believe that the most preposterous fabrications are reality. And those beliefs often lead to misery, shame, hatred, and death.

    Fortunately, surveys indicate that, very slowly, people are putting aside childish things and accepting the human condition as it is.

    Life is beautiful, and it is all we have.

    For me, it doesn't really matter. I try to enjoy life and live it to the fullest. Whatever happens after death, it doesn't worry me at all. It's like going to a party after dinner. While I'm eating, I prefer not to think about the party, since I want to enjoy the amazing pasta carbonara I'm having!!

    I've always doubted any "afterlife", but the fact is I simply don't know what will happen after I die. I can't be certain that "death is the end", although I think that's by far the most likely scenario.

    I think this is important to remember, regardless of whether there's an afterlife.

    Making the best of what you have, trying to enjoy life and appreciate it is always a good idea, no matter what happens next. I know some people have really tough or tragic lives, which is why it's also important to try to make things a bit better for them if we ever get the chance.
