Do you think that is what religions are for? Do you think this still applies today? Why?Quote
mm...what is religion for...
Most religions seem to envision an 'afterlife' where a 'soul' heads to,
Why suppose such a set of circumstances? I do not think they respond to any of the questions in the OP!Quote
which would make one whom engages in illegal or socially-frowned-upon activities that are not discovered in law or the normal order of neighbourly activities second guess themself because 'god' will judge them for their activities, then how would one live their life?
Again why suppose such a complicated scenario which would not start since I do not tell lies!Quote
If you lied to me and I did not know it, and you found your effort contributed to your position in the hierarchy of elements and the physics of those when your body decomposed after death, and you 'knew' where your essence of energy was heading to, either to be part of a new round of elements and energy that composes other things or toward some 'heaven or hell', would you kick yourself for having lied to me?
Such a speculation I would not spend any time on.Quote
Or just shrug your shoulders...and not care that 'you' are now a stone born from the middle of a planet and have billions of years to live caught in a timelessness of 'same old, same old'?
