Didn't see a thread on here about this topic, so just curious to discuss what MTF views and beliefs are.

Religious talk is okay, but try not to let it dominate, as many belief systems include an idea of life after death in a spiritual rhelm that is not related to the traditional heaven or hell of conventional religion.

Keep it clean and respectful, but do you think the death of the human body is the final end for us, or near death experiences are real and we go on to something else/back to where we came from? Reincarnation, automatic or chosen, that sort of thing.

Facsinating to discuss, what are MTF views?

I believe in heaven and hell.

But I don't think hell is somewhere you are sent to eternally. Most people go to heaven immediately. Some serve some time in hell, some serve quite a long time in hell. But eventually, once you serve your time according to your misdeeds while on Earth, you are given admission into heaven.

Heaven is the most beautiful, with rose gardens, fountains, etc. Everybody is so chill, relaxed, peace, love, happiness surrounds. You are free to do anything, and there is a machine where you can walk in and choose an age and then poof, you are in that body of whatever physical condition you were in at the age you picked.

I don't have any reason to believe in life after death.

Near death experiences are experienced by living people.

Of course I would prefer to die and live as a 25 year old playing tennis for an eternity, but it's only a fantasy. :shrug:

I'm totally stoked about meeting JC at the pearly gates. I've envisioned the meeting: he smiles and says "dude what was that?" but then lets me in anyway cause that's what he's about no? After that I know I'll see my sweet babushka, for whom I still cry during the night (I call them Baba-mares lol). In stark contrast to this scene of heavenly bliss, the pharmaceutical industry and much of the medical profession will be prodded with pitchforks by Satan and his minions for filling her full of supplements. The bastards killed my Baba. Yeah, she was 91 but most of my ancestors are centenarians. :rolleyes:

I don't think there's any life after death, I don't believe in crap like heaven and hell.

But I hope there is something after death, just to see people I loved once again.
But that's just something my heart want, my mind knows that's not true.

I believe there will be judgement to all functioning humans who can tell right from wrong.. you were given a brain and life.. how did you manage your life? It is not safe to suppose it is just a meaningless journey.. It is frightening to think there will be judgement, but death is not the closure..

But I am still on the path of finding the truth, my questions are still not answered..When I see a child who suffers from extreme pain.. When I see very poor people.. I feel very disturbed.. I don't understand, I don't understand why did my uncles suffer from schizophrenia..
Still many unanswered questions..

Don't believe in life after death, when you're gone, you're gone.

I hope there's a parallel Universe I'll be born into where I can have another go at life, but that's wishful thinking.

If there was a heaven, how long would you be there? All eternity sounds less intimidating than if you actually set some figures too it. It should at least be way more than 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 years. Frankly, I'm not sure what's left to experience after the first 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 years....and that's not even a fraction of the total. But perhaps endless repetition is bliss?

I assume it's the end when we die. All things must come to an end eventually, and I don't see the need for two separate ones.

Sometimes the need for a life after death is to strengthen the current life. It doesn't have to be tangible but belief in it can be a source of strength. Quite possibly misguided, but the importance is the effect. At other times perhaps the belief in life after death can be resoundingly negative. I have heard it suggested that belief in reincarnation induces acceptance of living conditions among those who make up India's slums, for instance, rather than trying to force change. I won't go into detail for fear I lack the requisite knowledge to conduct a fair evaluation.

Oh it can undeniably have extreme negative consequences. It is one of those things that can be healthy in moderation but is undoubtedly destructive in excess. A brief survey would probably reveal it has far more negative effects than positive (in this lifetime at least :cool:). But I should try to refrain from judging too much without deeper thought ("I" as in me personally).

doesn't seem likely why would there be one.

if you had a bad life wouldn't it be torture to live again forever?
or with family that did this or that?
i somehow want to believe but nothing can be constant.

unless it's all a simulation but still why are we more special than other living beings?
