harp Posted September 20, 2010 Report Share Posted September 20, 2010 What do you think happens after death? Do you believe we have sentient non-physical bodies (spirits)?I remember a long time ago, I planned to kill myself but didn't go through with it because I was too scared. I had no idea what was going to happen to me after it, or where I was going to go. I romanticize death, seeing it as the ultimate escape, but how can it be so romantic if I fear it so much? A lot of people believe that after we die, our sentience ends because we have no spirits. I mean, science hasn't proven we have souls right? I see that as arrogant, because lets face it, humans aren't very intelligent, there must be many things that exist that humans haven't found scientific evidence for yet. Just like many animals aren't aware of many of the things humans are aware of because they're much less intelligent than humans.Or some people believe that people who commit suicide are damned to hell for eternity, I remember being scared of that when I was planning to kill myself (and thinking of myself as an idiot for it!)For me, believing in life after death is just a gut feeling that there definitely must be. It doesn't make sense, there's too little of a purpose to life for there not to be sentience after this. The human body is so weak and vulnerable to physical pain, psychological pain, torture and being controlled for there not to exist being a sentient entity and not being confined to a human body at the same time.
