Finally, I disagree with your "context". That context is based on the old fairy tale so it was never real and therefore still isn't. Believing in an afterlife is what's really out of context.

There are many days ahead (probably), so there can be a change in attitude. This atheistic human could become the True Christian. Look, what happens to (militant) atheists:

Feel free to change your attitude then. Drinking Beverage

And, with nearly 40,000 sects of Christianity, what exactly is a "True Christian"? Rolleyes

Jesus doesn't want to be proven: Jesus never shows himself.
Jesus wants to be proven: Jesus comes to earth and shows everyone undeniably that he is God and everyone can't help but believe.

Those are the only 2 possibilities that make any sense. Neither happened. Consider

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

I see no need for your so called context and silly shit like eternal life, nor I think that having finite life is depressing.

Loved ones dying is tough thing to deal with but wishing for some paradise where all will be reunited ain't gonna change how reality work.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Death is a natural part of life. Everything dies. It's unnatural to live forever. I can't think of anything more nightmarish and dreadful than eternal life and anyone who believes this fairytale shit hasn't thought this concept through.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: This being the only life can be depressing
I guess it all depends on the individual then. If life were an eternal blissful one, then many people would just procrastinate since they would have all the time in the world to do things. It would also get boring to them and they even might get to the point of wanting to die.

But for me, there would be nothing bad at all about living an eternal blissful life (in the pretend situation it were real). I am undecided on the issue of the afterlife/paranormal and remain open to the possibility that it is real. But I also remain open to the possibility that it is not real either.

However, it all depends on the type of eternal blissful life I am living. If I am living the life I want, then it would be the greatest life for eternity and there would be nothing bad at all about such a life. Such a life would have the greatest value for me. Nothing would take away the value of such a life for me. But if it is some boring and dull life and a life I don't want, then I would want out of it.

As far as religion goes, it is nothing good. It condemns even innocent people to hell for not adhering to certain commands and regulations. So the promise of an eternal blissful life without religion would be the ideal thing. But like I said, I do not know if the afterlife is even real or not.

Everlasting happiness would get boring after a while. Eternal bliss would become a nightmare after the first 100 years. Without sadness you really can't measure how happy you are.

When you die you don't exist and since you don't exist you won't even know you're dead because there is no you anymore....just as there was no you prior to being born.

Both my parents are not living anymore. They don't exist. I don't even think of them as being dead. Being dead denotes some sort of existence o or a state of being....but it's not. It doesn't bother me that they're not living. I'm not sad about it because it's natural for animals to die. We're animals and we die just like all animals do. But we're the only animal that know about it in advance so we've had to make up stories to curb our fears. And boy, some of those stories are real lulu's.

RE: This being the only life can be depressing
@SuperMarioGamer

Afterlife is nothing more than faify tale, no evidence points to existence of such. It's just another way to control masses - do what we say or you will be condemned to hell; hell is a stick, while heaven is a carrot.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
