A complete hypothetical scenario to Christians.

You are on your death bed moments away from your last breath. In some way you find out that there is no heaven and when you die there will be no afterlife. With these few moments you have left you ponder about the life you've led and the decisions you've made.

What are you thinking at this time?
Do you regret believing the way that you did?

Your thoughts...

"Oh, that sucks."

Not particularly. I did the best I could with what I had.

What if you're wrong-Christians, and you're standing before Allah about to be punished forever in a "blazing fire" where you're given boiling water to drink that can "cut the Bowles"

Nah, i'm a far better person for having my faith, i am of greater purpose to others, and i am living a more happy life for being Christian, and the afterlife is something that has so very little to do with it. Christianity is for the living, not the dead.

I am not a christian, but am going to answer as a Hindu.

I will probably, at that time sense contentment. (and hope that I'm not born again, and have attained mukti).

Do you regret believing the way that you did?

No I actually wont. I agree with Innomen on this one. I, personally, have never seen a person who does something he doesn't want to, if he can't understand the practical justification.

Your thoughts...

I guess it won't matter. I'd be happy, and content, if I'd have everyone I love around me at that moment and I'd be 50-ish.

Wow. That's not very optimistic, lol. Is the mortality rate that bad in India?

I would just commit suicide and forget the whole blasted thing, and be relieved that I won't be facing judgement for any wrong doings I may have committed.
But it shore beats the alternative dieing and finding yourself in eternal hell.

That's a very depressing outlook. You find nothing enjoyable or worthwhile about life without an afterlife to look forward to?

Nietzche was right.

No, I just always had this fantasy of dying young. It adds so much worth to your life.

Jump out of the window because it would be funnier than dying otherwise. No God, no judgement, I'm dead, who cares? Not me, I would be dead.

"I hope I die before diner, I do not want pasta for a last meal."

Probably not (can't say what I'll be thinking that far in the future). We are imperfect creatures and can believe faulty things. Unless a belief in a faulty things causes harm or pain, there is no reason to reget believing in it.

Someone needs to prop my arm up, so when I die, it gets fixed into a "high-five" position, so when I have my open casket funeral, I can give everyone a high-five from the grave.
