RE: What was heaven like?
I've come to the conclusion that if heaven were to exist it would be in a similarly imperfect world as this one and it would feel finite.

I have actually never heard a description of Heaven that did not sound like the worst kind of hell after thinking about it for more than a minute.

Exactly - I figure that any kind of thing that I would find heavenly would be markedly similar to now...

I'm just hoping whoever is in charge up there lets me trade in the 72 virgins for 12 porn stars.

The answer to that question is "none." He'll need to provide evidence of his existence for me to believe in him. Once his existence is established we can start negotiating incentives for becoming a follower.

Something impossible that violated all normal notions of free will. Basically, par for the course in Christian belief about heaven.

Granted, I deliberately didn't put much thought into it, back then. As soon as the thoughts or conclusions start to get uncomfortable, I would stop having them. Otherwise, I might end up staring right in the face of some genuine introspection, and that's not what I was looking for at that point in my life...

when I was a kid I thought heaven was just some random place in the world, didn't make much sense when I found out what it actually was

RE: What was heaven like?
Fluffy clouds everywhere. Castles made out of clouds. Fictional characters like Wolverine hanging out, and everyone figuring out what reality to make for themselves. I've always been into creating fantasy worlds and characters, so I was under the impression that would be my heaven, and the place I would actually get to live in one day. Of course that world is godless and free of religious bullshit so I suppose god might have been offended by that. I don't know. .. Even when I imagined some of this it sounded unrealistic and silly. I've never really been a theist.

A wise person makes their own decisions; an ignorant one follows public opinion.

To me it sounds like being stuck in church forever. What a drag.
