Living in this world has some nice things, but also bad things. Imagine a world with no pain nor suffering, no war, peace and prosperity. Everybody gets allong. Would you then want to live forever?

Sounds pretty boring to me. The only reasons why I would consider living forever is because of the vast amount of knowledge that can be learned.

I agree. I hope someday we can live on other planets. Explore the universe and so

I find it hard to believe that the after life will be just like this. Imagine all the people that would want their child or spouse there with them, but they can't since they went to that other cool place, wink wink. So in this situation, does God FORCE you to be happy by just making you happy or does he allow you to be with your loved ones? Maybe he even creates an exact copy of them and says "Here you go! Be happy!" Who knows!?!?!?!?!?

BLTLife, I allready pointed out that there is no pain and suffering.... meaning you'll be surrounded by loved ones.

Well if aging wouldn't be in the world you're discribing then yes, if not then I wouldn't like to live 100 years+ and not being able to move myself or feed myself :)

Yep :p No just kidding :) Aging is diffrent from growing. We all stop growing at the age of 25. After that we age.

I'm not sure that I would want to live forever, because I think that it is a very scary concept, however I think that I would like to be able to live a lot longer than we get on the planet at the moment. If we're lucky, we will be able to live long enough to see our children and grandchildren grow up which is something that should be celebrated, but I would just love to be able to see even more generations of my family grow up because reproducing is what we're supposed to do as human beings. Sadly it isn't possible, but I do certainly wish that it was.

Then would you want to live forever even only for that reason?

I would not like to live forever in this world. I also don't see the use of it. The way you say it sounds very boring to me as well although I am in pain every day and night. Get along with everybody???? Are we blind and deaf and without any own opinion as well or finally able to respect others for what they are? I think we (our souls/ghosts) already live forever, we are just here to finish something, to learn, to grow and we go on to the next level.

What people are makes them who they are. We are all givin free will. Would we use it to hurt each other?
