I actually like the Jehovah Witness’s version of it. I don’t know where they think you go as soon as you die but they say people do get to go to a new earth. A paradise. A world similar to ours but much better. I like the sound of that because it would allow us to explore earth and space for as long as we want. Just more time to do whatever. Though, if that doesn’t happen then I won’t be disappointed because I simply won’t exist. So, right now is right now. I live this life as long as… Read more »

That would depend on whether consiousness was still tied to the body or would be freed to some other plane of existence…if the former, I’d take nonexistence in a second over being trapped in a decaying body unless there was some indication it eventually led to reincarnation or some other active existence…an eternity of boredom holds no attraction at all.

@ Hannah: I think he means which is more frightening NOW, when we do have consciousness.

The Bible is clear on this subject! There is no conscience after death! The idea of a conscience after death was added because it was a good idea… It gives the Clergy and the Preachers a reason to exist… Some of the most trustworthy Bible writers are telling like it is when we ALL die! Ecclesiastes 9:5 (NIV) For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward* (*not Heaven or Hell, but the grave is the final reward!), and even the memory of them is forgotten* (*Not true in all cases,… Read more »

Well I know that my consciousness will be in heaven after death, so absence of consciousness scares me more.

Neither one would frighten me. Why should they? I don’t believe in death.

How can an absence of consciousness be frightening? You have no consciousness to perceive it as that.
