What would you do?

What would you do if, upon death, you found out that you were wrong? What I mean is... a good deal of people around the world have found a spiritual path that they feel is the truth. Many of these paths are specific in what they believe happens upon death. So... If you're Christian, and you find that you will be reincarnated when you die ~ are you all right with that? If you're Athiest and you discover that hell is real and you're going there, are you okay with that? If you're Pagan and it turns out that there is nothing beyond this life (let's assume for a moment that you would be briefly aware of this realization before the blackness sets in) ~ are you okay with that? And so on and so forth. Not only am I asking IF you would be okay with discovering that you are/were wrong in your beliefs, but why or why not? Anything goes here, and I'm not going to rate anyone poorly for disagreeing with me. In fact, I love finding people who can intelligently disagree with me, so agreeing with me won't necessarily get you a "best response" either. lol. Have fun, I'm interested in seeing where this conversation/debate can go (just, try not to kill eachother, please, lol.)

I'm a Christian. If I'm wrong, and I don't believe I am - there IS proof of a God, a great and loving one - nothing bad will come of it. If there is no God, then nothing happens. I die, and that's it. Not much of something to look forward to, but I understand a lot of people think this is more realistic. If I were to be wrong and we are all reincarnated, I don't mind that. Whatever I am in my second life will be something that is useful. If I become a rat, I have a purpose, if I become a cow, I have a purpose, if I become the next senator of New York....wait, I need to quit while I'm ahead. Great discussion! I'm offering my opinions, I don't like cat fighting either. Let people think whatever they think...

shrug my shoulders and think, oh well, I did my best. if nothing else, I know I'm right that my body will become part of the Earth, and then part of other living things. so I suppose it can never be the end, even if I won't be around to see it.

Great conclusion! So, you're right in one way, even if you find you're wrong in another. Great attitude. Thanks for sharing ~ +.

I'm atheist. I know there is no god, and there has never been any proof of a god existing. If I am wrong, I think that a god will accept that some people will not believe simply because they are told to. In fact, I think he'd prefer people who used their mind and imagination and found him/her wanting. I think any god would prefer a sceptic to someone who just followed the crowd and believed because they were afraid of the results if they didn't. I don't think a sane god would send anyone to hell simply because they chose the path of sceptisizm. Of course, I could be wrong and there IS a god and he's insane. because any sane being that could stop some of the stuff that has been going on here on earth in the past 2000 years and didn't doesn't deserve to be deified, but vilified
