Still impressed by how grounded the rest of you 'lopers are!
but yeah, i also believe that there is nothing after death, we cant remember anything before we were born! but there are many other reasons to explain my beliefs on this topic, probably all related to my atheist ways
though I'll admit that if i do try and think of that nothingness, the total lack of thought, feeling or existence, it does give me a horrible knot in my stomach,
but tbh, all that heaven/afterlife bullcrap is just an excuse for people not wanting to own up to accepting the inevitable... its a nice fairytale yeah, who wouldnt want that? but it's highly unrealistic. honestly, i believe that you've just got to make the absolute most out of what you have in life, enjoy yourself, don't live in fear and try and do something memorable or meaningful, so that you or your work can live on through others after you are gone...
