Roman Emperor/Philosopher Marcus Aurelius agreed with you:

"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
-- Marcus Aurelius --

Awesome!

Wow, Blaine, you really know how to coin a phrase: "to boldly go where no man has gone before" - I'll have to try and remember that --

At my first Star Trek convention, George Takei was the guest speaker - I've met Nimoy personally when he signed my son's birthday card - so, :P tongue

I met him at the Director's Guild in Hollywood, when he spoke at the pre-screening ot ST4, "The Search For Spock," which he directed - I also met Harve Bennett, the producer. Good times.

Oh, and Blaine, before you get the mistaken idea that I'm some kind of celebrity, you couldn't be more wrong - Unseen is the real celebrity on this board. He told me personally that he wrote the screenplay for "Jurassic Park," and we all know that he would never be less than honest about something like that, don't we? We DO, don't we? Well don't we? Anybody?

"They did a much better job with my script for Jurassic Park."

I can vouch for Unseen. I was on set during the making of Jurassic Park trying to make a herd of Fronkeys famous. I did not meet him personally but I did notice a man who was able to walk under any door frame or bridge no matter what the height clearance sign read. Unfortunately for me my Fronkeys were deemed to be too evolved as no dinosaur ever walked with one and the producer was against using any cinematic licensing in the making of the film. I also think Unseen's 1980’s German electronic music would have made for an excellent theme tune for the film.

You mean this list is infiltrated with the Hollywood Elite type atheists we've heard so much about!?!

You really do exist.  Well that answers one question.

I met Florence Henderson once, after she spoke at a Women's Leadership meeting in Santa Clara circa 1994, she was drunk. It was all I could have hoped for.

@Marc - I envy you, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for drunk blondes --

Speaking of BS, and we were, in the Book of Numbers, the prophet Balaam, much like Shrek, had a talking donkey - whether or not he sounded like Eddie Murphey, I can't say --

We shouldn't be surprised at that, we have a horse that does pretty much the same!

My thoughts? It's over, your entire being; consciousness, memories, thoughts, dreams - gone. Complete annihilation of everything that is "you". I guess the example of what it's like is to think of what it's like in between dreams, if that makes any sense.

I believe that what happens when I die is not important, it is what I do in life that matters in spreading compassion and kindness. When I die all the atoms that make up my body will quietly disengage from what was me and go off to do other things. The energy that goes to make up my thoughts will not be destroyed either, it will just go off and doing something else. I take comfort in that all that I am now was born in the thermonuclear fires of suns as they exploded and to be where they are in me today they had to journey across distances and spans of time so great that my small human brain cannot even properly comprehend them, but that one day they came together to make me. What a fantastic honor that they did all that for me, they gave me a little of their time so that I could experience this amazing thing we call life. In this life I have come to experience incredible things like love, pain (yes, unpleasant though it is it is still amazing), the beauty of nature, the companion ship of animals and I have given life to new collections of atoms, how cool is all that, so why should I expect anything more ?

Appreciate the wonders about you, question everything, spread compassion and LOVE.
regards,
Judith vd R.
