It is somewhat disturbing to think that life will end someday for all of us. We can't escape it and grow closer to it with each passing day. Sorry for the buzzkill............

I am agnostic

that means I believe that we all go somewhere but that there isn't a man alive on this planet that knows exactly where or what that is...

eternity is a long time...I like to think that we live out every single life there has ever been....that way, any time you do something bad to someone you are doing it to yourself, and any time you do something good it comes back to you as well...

Hitler will have to live out the lives of every Jew he killed

what else are you gonna do with an eternity...?

Return to the essence...
Aceyalone's song "The Thief In The Night" sums it up perfectly

If there is an afterlife, I do not believe that "bad" souls are sent to hell for eternity. No All-Powerful being would be so cruel and no person, no matter how bad, deserves eternal punishment. I also think that we are given the option of returning as a living being again, we are not given options of who or where though. Maybe we can be reincarnated on other planets besides Earth as well... or maybe I OD'd on LSD this morning.

agreed...

I have heard theories from some that maybe life on earth is punishment for something we did wrong up there...?

What if this is the afterlife, and what we have now is a reflection of what we were? Then when we die, out next "afterlife" is a life reflective of this one?

as an agnostic I certainly can't rule it out...

the only proof we have of anything is from NDEs (near death experiences)

A majority of individuals who experience an NDE see it as a verification of the existence of an afterlife.[28] This includes those with agnostic/atheist inclinations before the experience. Many former atheists, such as the Reverend Howard Storm[29][30] have adopted a more spiritual view after their NDEs. Howard Storm's NDE might also be characterized as a distressing near-death experience. The distressing aspects of some NDE's are discussed more closely by Greyson & Bush (1992).

As Greyson notes: "No one physiological or psychological model by itself explains all the common features of NDE. The paradoxical occurrence of heightened, lucid awareness and logical thought processes during a period of impaired cerebral perfusion raises particular perplexing questions for our current understanding of consciousness and its relation to brain function. A clear sensorium and complex perceptual processes during a period of apparent clinical death challenge the concept that consciousness is localized exclusively in the brain."[31]

Research on NDEs occurring in the blind have also hinted that consciousness survives bodily death. Dr. Kenneth Ring notes in the book "Mindsight: Near-Death and Out-of-Body Experiences in the Blind" that up to 80% of his sample studied reported some visual awareness during their NDE or out of body experience.[32]

You become a pair of panties.
Well, how good you lived your life determines whose panties you become.
