    I certainly would.  The people who adhere to Gods Word actually will live on the earth forever.  With Him in the Coming Kingdom.  Who would not want to live on the earth then??

    I would say yes but I am sure I'd eventually get bored and depressed and not want to live any longer.

    I don't think I would. If I had to, I would eventually want to kill myself.

    Only if humans change their ways (no wars, no greediness, no pollution, no harming the others, no this stupid selfishness of human civilisation etc.). Otherwise - no way.
    Planet is so beautiful and astonishing, I trully love Earth, but people cause too many problems to themselves , to the planet an to all other living beings, so if they don`t change, who could be able to live with them for eternity?

    No.  Earth would become a pretty small place over the space of forever.  In just a few hundred to thousand years you'd probably know every square inch of the earth by heart.  If you couldn't leave it to go explore space I think it would seem more like prison than living especially since your knowledge would be astonishing.

    I think just about any individual would likely become so much more knowledgeable than everyone else (assuming everyone didn't live forever) that in a few centuries-depending on intellect-they'd become the ruler of the world.  That would be a bad thing for everyone else since that individual would likely be bored and maybe even a little crazy.

    Just look at the difference in experience that there is between a four year old and an eight year old.  Four years of life experience is an insane amount of knowledge.  Once you hit about 300 years old I think talking to someone like Stephen Hawking (at his current age) would feel like you were talking to a four year old.  You'd be entertained but ultimately view his thoughts as you would a child's thoughts.

    You just wouldn't be able to find any conversation that was on your level anywhere in all of the world.  It would be like living in a daycare center for eternity.  A few hundred years of that...no thanks!
