The fundie/Biblical literalists Christians just love to tell the rest of us that they have the 'truth', but can't provide the slightest bit of verifiable evidence to substantiate their claim. Just because that millions of people claim to be Christians doesn't make the religion true, a statement which has been made many times to try to convince non believers. No doubt people of other religions believe their faiths are true too, whilst yet again not being able to verify their beliefs are factual.

I have come to the conclusion the 'truth' is exclusive to the person concerned, however far fetched it might be to other people. It is fine for people to believe what they wish to believe, with the proviso that they don't force it down the throats of others in the real world, and don't use it as an excuse for bigotry and abuse.

So do you think that there is a heaven for those who believe in it, but for those who don't nothing happens, and those who believe in reincarnation reincarnate ?

Unfortunately, nobody will ever find out because after we die we will all be DEAD.

Heaven is in the mind of the believer in that concept, but in all probability doesn't exist in reality.

You are probably right.

This world, in all probability, doesn't exist.
