Where Do You Go When You Die?

Ide rather one that knows how to fuck properly!!
I can respect that but you have to remember that it could be for the rest of eternity. Forever is a long time...I think I’d take the option of variety and ability to train them as you wish vs some wore out old cougar. LOL

Although with my history of sins, I’d prolly be met at the gates by 7 horny virgin dudes. Karma can be a tough one.

I’m not a religious man, nor do I have any intel on what happens in the next chapter....but I’m quite intrigued by the Muslim claim of greeting 7 virgins in paradise. No wonder they’re all so keen on blowing themselves up.
it's not 7 virgins, it's 7 Houris, which are kind of like genies, soulless beings there to do your bidding( i just looked, it's actually 72 Houris...and apparently militant muslim's wives are a little disgruntled about it and often seek counselling on how to deal with it)

They believe they get a mansion in paradise with as many as 72 bedrooms with a virgin in each one. The number of bedrooms and virgins they get is dependent upon the magnitude of the abomination they commit. This teaching isn't in the Koran but in the Hadiths. Interesting that they don't tell us whether these virgins are male or female.

Ah the wonders of religion.

But to answer the OP'S question. Some people believe they be re-incarnated. Some that when your dead that's it forever. Some that they go directly to heaven or hell. Everybody believes different.

I don't really see the difference between the Islam version of living happily every after in never never land and the Christian version. It's the same shit in a slightly different form.

Where someone goes when they die depends on the person and where they live. Most go to the morgue and then to a cematary or a crematorium.

as you are aware, we aren't talking about your physical remains. if you think there is no after life, that's your right. i won't try to convince you otherwise. i'm not sure myself...i'd really like to believe that this isn't the entirety of existence, that would be pretty fucking depressing...

Despite my snark, this is actually a topic I have a great interest in. Sean Carroll makes a compelling case that hypotheses involving immortal souls having influence over our brains have been ruled out by experiments. The fundamental laws of physics underlying everyday life are completely understood and do not allow for the existence of souls. In any event, people proposing such hypotheses should be held to the same standards as the physicists who further our understanding of the world.

that all supposes a "soul" is a physical object that takes up mass, uses energy of some kind, like an organ...i've never once thought it was a physical object. i honestly don't think of it as a "soul" in the traditional sense, to me it's just your consciousness, your self awareness. i don't have any kind of scientific explanation, this is one of those areas where science falls short of being useful. there are physics, then there are metaphysics. i do not believe in ghosts, angels, leprechauns, fairies, or pixies...the only trolls i'm aware of reside in the politics section...
but if we do have a "soul"..it's not going to be measured with a meter, weighed on a scale, or distilled into a flask...
I was a true and sincere asshole for a long time. some will tell you i still am, but i've been trying for the last decade and a half to do the right thing, live a decent life. it took me quite a while to start doing the right thing for the right reasons...you aren't nice to people so you can get into heaven, you are nice to people just because it's the right thing to do...doing anything in the hopes of getting a reward (in the form of heaven) turns it into something much less noble...much less healthy.
