Many insist that after you die , everyone will either go to Heaven or hell. If I don't believe in either's existence , why should I be subjected to it after death?


What happens after someone dies is based solely on their beliefs they held when they were alive. If they believed in reincarnation , they'd be reincarnated. If they believed nothing happened after death , nothing would happen.


That's my take on life after death.
So do you exist right now just because you believe you exist? Could you, if you tried hard enough, simply convince yourself that you didn't exist and consequently cease to exist? What makes you think that's how it works after death?

I have my own beliefs about what happens after death. Other people have theirs. Many don't believe that anything at all happens after death -- that we simply cease to exist. I cannot even begin to fathom how what we happen to believe about life after death has any bearing whatsoever on what will actually happen.

This is a good example of why I usually like your posts.

You can believe anything that you'd like. But whatever happens after death has no bearing on your beliefs. It just happens.

Other than the lies?

Why would you enable the meek?

A moral righteous person with solid high value ethics would teach the meek, rather than enable their behavior.

I did. That was my job. I took the meek and timid and taught them to be strong. Small simple tasks at first, then harder and more difficult and more complex tasks.

Those people gained confidence. Their ego and self-esteem improved and they became self-assertive. They became courageous instead of meek.

Jesus is a pathetic teacher.
