have you ever wondered what happens after death? oh yes religious people will give the standardised answer. good people go to heaven when they die. bad people go to hell when they die. is this really true. there's no scientific answer. i'm really skeptical about this afterlife thing. but then again, if there's no heaven or hell, where do people go when they die? we are all alive now, living as normal people. we have anger, happiness, sadness. but what happens when we all die? everything blackouts. it's freaky to think about it, but i can't help. is there really a god? when you die everything shuts off. you can't see your can't think you can't hear you can't talk. you're just not here anymore. and what happens? you're either cremated or buried. for cremation, imagine yourself being placed in a wooden coffin and pushed inside a furnace. you can't escape because the coffins are nailed shut. you can't move your arms to protect yourself beacuse of the small space in the coffin. you'll just melt and burn until you're reduced to ashes. now this sounds really scary i don't want to be cremated. for burial, you're also locked inside the wooden coffin. then you're placed to rest at a burial ground. they put you in a hole, then they slowly push back the soil and sand until it is totally covered. then you won't see day light again. insects underground like fireants and termites will bite though the coffin and they'll chew up your body. i don't want to be disfigured either. final conclusion, death IS scary and i don't want to die. but i still don't understand. what happens when a person dies? it sounds abit too magical and miraculous if someone tells me that the dead will go to heaven if he/she is a good person and watch over his/her loved ones. but is that really so? is there really heaven? and i once read in a book that according to the buddhist religion, everyone is guilty unless proven innocent. now how scary is that. i'll have to go to hell if it's like that. so many people will be going to hell. this is worrying me so much. i don't want to grow old and die. i don't want my life to be shut off. imagine me in a coffin. my body will be lifeless but where will my soul be? is there really such a thing called soul? i really am very scared. i just don't want to die. i want to live forever. death IS a scary thing.
