The whole god thing is just social control. Maybe if you just enjoyed the one life you have, just in case the logic is right.like it's illogical to believe your gods watch over this one of millions of planets out there? Do you think each planet with intelligent life forms have there own god?

LIVE EVERY DAY LIKE IT'S YOUR LAST, COZ ONE DAY IT WILL.... AND THERE AIN'T NO GOD

Re: Can you imagine if you were told, yeah this is it, this life you suffer and then it’s nothingness .
It's been a long time since I had that thought and feeling but today I imagined and felt being destroyed forever and my soul desperately sought to escape it. I just can't freaking believe people don't care about living. And I'm not talking about death but spiritual non-existence, day of judgment death of the soul death, ceasing to exist. I can't have that. I will not. I mustn't. I can't need that. Ugh.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79208516


it sounds like you are kinda ego-driven in your thoughts 'I'

the ego exists in you as your meat suit. the soul has no ego, it belongs to source

when your meat suit ends so does your ego

do you remember where you were before you were born? that is where you will return to after you die

no you. no i. only source. think!

Wouldn't be any different to me, I already think this way. Yet, I still help people when I can, and do my best not to harm others.

Take it from older wiser people:

Nihilism / Atheism etc. are cop outs of the lowest order. It not heroic or daring to believe these things....it's the opposite. It is cowardly and a false way out of responsibility.

Believing life has meaning and acting accordingly...now that's scary, dangerous, courageous and beautiful.

In all honesty I think if people thought there was no god or afterlife they would go crazy, I know there are a ton of people id like to shoot and get rid of but that isn't my right god commands all not to kill each other lest in self defense. I also do not believe any religion I think god put the rules in us from the begining and you know whats right and wrong.

It really would not matter, psychopath billionaires would still exist and rule everything

As a matter of fact, belief by people in an afterlife saves us from them keeping us from being in a prison cell, abused, starved and beaten working for them

Do you people even know your history?

Do you think the people ago built the pyramids could go home everyday, have dinner?

You do realize people not that long ago were forced to work 12 to 16 hours a day?

Why do you think labor laws were enacted?

Do you even realize the amount of people who died trying to organize labor rights and labor unions?

Watch videos of history if your to lazy to read, FFS!

Your ready to throw away everything people have fought for because you don't even know what they fought for, the ignorance is incredible in the world now

It's pretty hard to be happy in this life. I mean, consistently.

It's also impossible to believe that whoever's in charge is all-knowing, all-good, and all-powerful.

What's next? I'd like to say it couldn't possibly be worse than this shit show...but we all know it could.

I agree with this. Just imagine a world where all people follow what is right in God's eyes, by following the Ten Commandments, which are really a list of how to treat others. Regardless of whether or not they believe in an afterlife. Life would be very pleasant if everyone followed the Golden Rule. Life is hard for most people because of the way they are treated by other people. I have two children. One of them loves life and the other one hates life and makes me feel guilty for having given birth to her.

Not believing in an afterlife should not give you a free pass to do wrong - thinking that since there is no afterlife no payment for wrongdoing will result.

Maybe we should all just stop having children.

People are scared to die because they are afraid there is nothing waiting for them on the other side, what they believe is worth little in the moment of own death. There is no way to prove Afterlife so I guess nothingness is what we actually got.

Maybe we would all value what we have while we have it, and respect the temporary state of our existence.

Maybe we wouldn't imagine that our actions now will somehow be forgiven in another life.

Everyone needs to own up for this life and stop pining for the next... if there even is one!

There is only empirical EVIDENCE for one outcome - reincarnation. Kids knowing details about a life they could not possibly know about (pre Internet). Then it turns out to be true.

First, I don't believe that, BUT...

Going along with the thread topic, it really wouldn't matter to me if that was the case.

If it's true nothingness, then you wouldn't even know it because there would be no spirit or soul to feel the nothingness.

It would be same as when you're put under deep general anesthesia for a surgery. You don't realize you're under anesthesia, you just pass out and the next thing you consciously realize is when you're waking up. You have no feelings or thoughts of the hours you were under anesthesia.

Well, it has to be one or the other....

Either everything you say, do, and feel has eternal significance, or it means absolutely nothing whatsoever. There is no in between. Of that, I'm certain.

I felt this way since I was very young:

If the point of this life is to get to know God and that relationship, good or bad, determines where you'll spend eternity... then why is every waking second of this life focused only on earning or having enough money to survive?

Think about it: the only goal of this life is to work a job you don't want, for money. That's it. There is no other purpose to this life, that I can see.

Once my life ends, I would've spent 99.99% of my time and energy worrying about money and 00.01% of my time and energy worrying about my relationship with God.

This life feels like one huge distraction, and it's virtually impossible to escape it.

Any thoughts...?

God came to me as a child around 4 years old.

Then I became a Christian and led my parents to Christ.

It's all real. I'm on the autism spectrum and see things differently. I always could see God.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76799292


Fascinating! My parents took me to church when I was four and that scared me so badly that I lived in relative terror until age 13. Then I realized that the churches were evil for preaching fear and sin that could never be avoided, though they did have some access to power. I rejected my parents and the churches for many years and then found my own way to acknowledging Our Creator and began to live a better life. I still don't attend churches since they are unutterably boring and don't provide any value to me, though the obviously do for others.

I'll do my best to live a good life and see where that goes. If there's an afterlife, I'll do the same there, to the best of my ability. If not, I'm at least thankful for this one.
