    WHERE DO WE GO TO WHEN WE DIE

    Several school of thought has reason this topic and contributed inmersly on the above topic but the more we try the more mystirious it becomes to us. However we can still reason together.
    some say after death mans goes out of existence while others say man goes to the spirit ream stays there kounill the second comming of JESUS CHRIST. This and many more we shall treat in the succeeding paragraphs.

      I think we can all agree that our physical bodies simply decompose with the help of nature's agents, bacteria mainly, or are consumed and reprocessed by worms, insects, rats, etc. In that sense, some of our atoms and molecules end up as parts of new living organisms.

      Some people believe that the soul has an existence independent of the brain. Others would say that consciousness or sentience is a function of the brain and simply dies with it. I tend to go along with that view.

      It is a well known, proven, scientific fact that anyone who believes in the Flying Spaghetti Monster goes to FSM heaven, where there is a stripper factory and a beer volcano. Every one else just rots away in limbo, slowly going insane with boredom until the second coming when they will be forced to eat overcooked pasta and drink cheap, acidic Chianti for all eternity.

      Everybody knows this and to deny the obvious proof is foolish and arrogant in the extreme. Not to mention dangerous. Better to believe just in case I feel. big_smile

      First of all, sorry if my spelling and grammar kinda sucks... I'm workin on it.
      Now, I think ...and this has nothing to do with the person starting this thread... but I think that these kind of questions are asked mainly by people that live a very dull and non interesting life, and they think 'there's got to be something more and better than this', perhaps after I die, when we go to paradise in heaven... where everything is wonderful, and where everybody loves me, and where I am sombody ...doh.

      This IS paradise! When you die ...you die. When I go I want to be completely worn and torn out after having lived my life to the fullest, and leaving my loved ones with only happy memories of their time with me and full of the love I had for them.

      Live now instead of wishing for and wondering about things that are completely irrelevant.
      Who cares what happens when we die, all that matters is what we do with our lifes while we're still alive.

      I don't think we go anywhere when we die, it's just ...you know, tjitjing... delete.

      Where do we go when we die??? mmmm depends on what you believe my personal belief is that my spirit will rise and go to heaven and my body will body will go back to the earth. Our bodies are only capsules for our souls and our souls have to go somewhere don't they? However it is only my personal opinion and I also repsect others thoughts and opinions as well as isn't that what makes the world go round???big_smile

    "Where we go when we die" is interesting in the same way that the Large Hadon Collider (did I spell that right?) is interesting.   Personally I like Philip Pullman's take, that we go into a large waiting area and are left their by a God who hasn't quite figured it out yet either.  His protagonist, Lyra, frees the dead toward the end of the "His Dark Materials" trilogy and the dead disintegrate into the cosmos as particles.  They are very happy with that result since they will be a part of everything. 

    Where we go when we die is not really all that important, but it can be entertaining to talk about. 

    People who say they know where we go when we die are full of something and it is not the truth, although it might be delusion, or it might be just plain old shit.  Nobody knows where we go when we die. 

    The truly important thing, I think, is that we do not let where we go when we die take over where we go when we are alive.

    Well everybody is entitled to their own opinions. It doesn't mean they are right.
    Historical and scientific findings over the last few hundred years have actually proven many events in the bible. Thus proving the bible is believable. At least for me it is.

    Let us think about this for a minute. When Jesus came to the earth it was for a purpose. His ransom sacrafice was to match his life of perfectness to Adam ( who was also perfect) but lost his perfection due to sin. So in other words he gave his perfect life to pay back for Adams inperfections.

    Now moving on, when Jesus was on the earth his dear friend Lazarus became ill. Jesus was preaching in a city 2 days walking distance away. When Mary and Martha sent a messenger to Jesus to tell him Lazarus was so ill by the time he got to Jesus to tell him Lazarus had died.
    Jesus did not drop everything and run to Lazarus but instead he waited another 2 days before venturing out on his journey to Lazarus' home. SO IN ALL IT TOOK 4 DAYS FROM THE TIME LAZARUS DIED UNTIL JESUS ARRIVED.

    Why is this so important? Because Jewish belief at that time was that the soul hovered over a body for 3 days and so family was supposed to watch over the corpse to see if he was really dead. By the 4th day it would have been too late. Jesus ressurected Lazarus to prove a point.

    “Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.” John 11:11

    #1 The soul does not hover over the body, it is in fact the life force not another entity.

    #2 that GOD is more powerful than death itself. and that GOD with all his power could do anything.

    #3 Sheol  is the common grave.

    “Whatever comes to your hand to do with all your power, do it because there is no work, or thought, or knowledge, or wisdom in the place of the dead to which you are going.”—Ecclesiastes 9: 5, 6, 10.

    The bible states that " The living are conscious that they will die, but as for the dead they are conscious of nothing at all" It also refers to them as being asleep. The Bible also mentions that "all in memorial tombs, and the sea will give up those who died in it... to be ressurected"
    And where??? " On the earth"...this is to take place after Armeggedon.

    Anyways- thats my thought on the matter.

    jjrubioposted 8 years ago

    With all due respect Thats just saying that Death itself the mere state of being is actually more powerful than GOD. And thats pretty sad. God instilled in us all the instinct to want to live eternally and not to die. Man does not naturally want to die. We all know it happens to us all but NO ONE wants to die.

    Why? Because it was not GOD plan to have us die to begin with. God has the power to bring us all back WHEN he wants to. Death is just another state of SLEEP.....

        So when you die do you go into a primordial ooze of bolognese sauce?  Or is that just for the FSM's righteous?  The everlasting torments of bubbling Neapolitan sauce for the un-righteous?  Alfredo and mushroom sauce must be like purgatory, on their way to bolognese but not there yet?

        Mark you must get some dissenters?  Not everyone likes Spaghetti.  Are you not concerned about a Penne Reformation?  Or a Protestant Rotini denomination?  Big Shells (high FSM), little Shells (low FSM), Elbows, Farfalle, Fiori, Fusilli, Gemelli, Manicotti, with all the different pastas you could end up with over 3,000 different Protestant FSM denominational breakaways from the one true Flying Spaghetti Monster congregation.  High priest of the slurp, oh salami, if you don't keep things together you might not be handing out all the bibs soon.  Has he nailed his 95 recipes to your door yet?  smile

    And getting back on the point of the thread....

    There are basically three general places that the soul can go after death (and in between lives)

    Each of these general places has many levels within it. There is the heaven world, the astral plane, and the lower astral (most would call hell).

    Each soul has its own individual awareness and understanding of its self (superconscious, conscious, unconscious and/or subconscious) and what happens after death. The soul's desires basically determine where it goes. The more conscious the soul is of desires that are according to the Divine Order of the Universe, the more in control of its destination it has.

    for those that do not have conscious understanding/control in varying degrees, or have trauma at death, there are Ascended souls and enlightened souls that "pray" for and guide the soul to its  highest level according to the Divine Order.

    The innumerable recorded and researched cases of past life experiences clearly point to life after death. In all the recorded cases of reincarnations, it was found that there was a variable time lag between the death of the person and his next reincarnation on Earth. So, where do we go after death till our reincarnation on Earth? Is it a single plane of existence or are there a variety of planes of existence? If so, what are the factors that decide where we go after death? In this article, we present the answers to these and other questions about this topic. These answers are obtained through spiritual research done by seekers of the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) with highly developed sixth sense (ESP).

    Thanks doc,u are doing a great job here,may heavens reward u indeed! I think,where we go after death,depends on one's belief and faith,but the "truth" is that God is real! Heaven is real! Hell is also real! But i see clearly here that being a writer seem to affect some people's idiosyncrasy,they now forget sane reasoning,just because they are writing,they tend to slide away from truth just because they want to stand outstanding! Think wise,don't just write because you can write,that wisdom was bestowed on u by some higher authority,think about the mentally derailed?Thank u.
