What emotions does the After Life, or lack of, stir in you?
Do you believe we go on in some fashion? Does the the threat of Hell stimulate you to good deeds? Do you acquire the traits of the next being you wish to incarnate to?
Curiosity and Hope! I am not sure, but I can’t imagine this life is all there is. I really don't believe in heaven or hell in the biblical sense, since I cannot believe that there is deity that would punish anyone and everyone who does not bow down and recognize his existence. Being human should be enough to motivate us to do good deeds!
I am excited about this life as well as life after death. I do believe in Karma and I try to go for doing good deeds so I could have good karma. I think about that a lot. I am a Hare Krishna so we do believe in Karma. I am not claiming that I know a great deal about the after life. I am claiming that from what I have learned the subtle body travels with you to the next life so you will have some traits from this life. In addition, the situation that you are born into will be the result of this life and all previous lives.

A helping hand for those believers who need to attack atheism, but lack the ability to think of anything to say for themselves. I came across this in my travels. This is cut and pasted from CARM, the Christian...
