I don't believe in an afterlife. I've seen a lot of people say that death feels, "like before you were born" and that makes the most sense to me.

To me I feel life itself is a "force". Its like energy that comes to your physical being then goes when you die. But I believe that energy never truly "dies" like physical vessels. It can usually change form but never truly "disappear". Explain why robots don't have a conscious mind like we do as living creatures. So I definitely believe there is something beyond death. Reincarnation, karma it makes sense to me.

I believe in reincarnation altho of human kind and not animals. i have met more than a few old souls in my journey and i connect with them more than anyone else. the further up u go, the further disconnected u seem to be from others.

I am a Christian so I definitely believe in an afterlife. I was always taught that there was an afterlife, and I never knew anyone personally who did not believe in one. That is, until I came to this forum. I never heard of this "nothingness" until I came here and could not figure out why. I now realize the reason. In Christianity, it is taught that suicide is a sin. Therefore, I am one of the few Christians on this forum which is dominated by atheists. I personally believe that there is a wonderful afterlife that awaits us all. The idea of nothingness scares the hell out of me. If someone here were to convince me of this nothingness, I would no longer be suicidal, and that also scares the hell out of me since I would have to continue living this horrible life.
So is your Christianity preventing you ctb? I also was raised Christian, and yeah I've been told its hell for suicide. I hope I can be forgiven, but I sometimes worry I will go to a worse place. My dogs would be hurt and my family devastated but I can't go on like this, so many challenges and I'm losing my mind.

I used to be religious and I think the concept of afterlife is scary. I hope it doesn't exist.

If there is an afterlife, I hope it's the just and fair void. Good bad indifferent? Void. Swim in the thick and omnipresent primordial ooze. I used to believe in God and that they would fix my brain but I count it as a gain as there is nobody to answer to. Nobody to decide based on rules that I couldn't know for a fact. If there is a good, they will know that I searched for truth and found no god and no proof of an afterlife.

All this to say, I used to be scared but I'm not anymore of the wrath of a god, I look forward to the process everyone will face.

as far as i'm aware, there is no consensus in judaism about what happens after death--and, as much as i like reading him, i can't take Dante or the doctrine he uses seriously. so i suspend judgement.
i do like imagining the afterlife as like a meeting so i could say hi to the people i never thought i'd see again, ask Levinas or Duns Scotus some questions i always had about their stuff, jam out with Arthur Russell, give a pretty flower to Anne Charlotte Robertson, hop into the heavenly library and spend g-d-knows how many cycles reading what was lost or unwritten on earth. g-d themself could not show up or just not say much and i'd still be very happy.

my belief is that you go to where you think you will go and there is not one true religion

I used to be a Christian and have an old suicide letter where I said I deserve to go to hell and it's where I belong. I'm an athiest now and it's really comforting to believe that there is nothing after death, just the sweet void of nonexistence

I'm suicidal, very likely to CTB soon, but I still believe that Jesus Christ is Lord.

i guess i believe theres no afterlife, or atleast in my wishful thinking. eternal living seems like the greatest curse, regardless of if it's happiness or suffering. never ending, it has to get boring at some point. from what i know, some form of eternal living exists in many religions. ironically, all i can do is hope and pray that there's nothing beyond this world.

I believe thereā€™s nothing after this. 13 billion years have passed and I didnā€˜t feel a thing, and a trillion more could and it would be the same.
