Where Are You Going When You Die???
Agnostic...I don't know.
Atheist...Nowhere. Consciousness is a product of the brain and it dies when I do.
JW's and others...The elect are chosen to live and the rest cease to exist.
Muslim...Muslim hell or Muslim heaven.
Christian...It depends on wether you are Catholic or protestant.
Catholic... have you worshipped the saints and virgin mary enough?
Protestant... have you believed in Jesus enough as your personel saviour?
You are going to hell eitherway...
Buddhist/Hindu.... work out your Karma.
NDE... we are all saved and going to experience heavenly type experiences.
Also NDE experiences, we are all saved, there is a hell for some, we reincarnate, we don't, we do!!
Decades of looking into this stuff I have to go with the first premise....

The first is the rational option to adopt if you need ablolute proof. But the last option has testimony from those who have experienced something and should be accepted as evidence albeit it being someone else's testimony. The apparent contradiction you highlight with the last disappears if you accept that in such circumstances you have an influence on the aspect of reality you create/experience. Believe you are inadequate and will find yourself in hellish circumstances and that's what you create, believe you've done ok and will be somewhere nice, you can find yourself there instead. Want or feel you need another go on the mortal merry-go-round, off you go then.

Err,, of to go then.... don't quiet know what to make of that...
Once I have no physical body I shall not exist any more than I did before I was born. Before I was born I might have had some sort of existence, but I have no memory of it and so it doesn't really exist as 'me'. After I have died I will not exist as 'me'.
I think it all arises from fear of oblivion. Some people react to this fear by imagining an afterlife where everything will be marvellous - no more slavery, pain, toil, loneliness...
But oblivion is not threatening. If you don't exist, then there is no slavery, pain, toil, loneliness...
Everyone has their own way of coping with the unknown.
