This was aritten by my great friend Seth Bennet.

Some will say it is the home of God and all of his believers. Others will say it is a land filled with virgins. Then there are the people who just describe it as three words: paradise and bliss. Supposedly, everyone is perfect in Heaven, but how can a society function like that? Maybe my mind is just not able to wrap around the thought of no one having conflict. I, personally, wouldn't like to be in a place where there was no individuality, because there is no perfection without order and precedent. Maybe it is just a goal for humans to work for in life, so they don't go around doing whatever they want. Yeah, that sounds right. If you think about it, what is "eternal bliss", the ability to not worry, or stress, or be angry? Some will call it Heaven, but I call it death. After all, what is more eternal than not being alive? Your conscious is no longer there (which is a hard thought to fathom, even as I type this note) and "you" feel no more. What is more blissful than utter silence and nonexistence? I would prefer to just die, and live on as a memory in the hearts and minds of my loved ones. I don't want to have to go anywhere else. I could never be truly happy in Heaven, because I would know my children are suffering over my death. But, maybe God would work it out? He is supposed to have that kind of power, if "he" can even be put into sex, or even be fathomed by the mind. Most people won't even take the time to read this, which is a shame, but hopefully those who do realize what I am trying to say. I will probably piss a lot of people off by even questioning Heaven, but oh well. Ranting is ranting and I can say what I want to.

What is Haeven? It's a spelling error olol!

No seriously, you make a good point. Personally I've never given it much thought to the afterlife in general, not in a while at least, because I like putting my focus on the things that I know are certain in the context of my reality and the things that matter to my long-term happiness; whether or not there is an afterlife is not only something that is not within my circle of influence, it's also something I will never find out to the point of having proof either way, so I'm usually pretty reluctant to theorize about it myself.

Heaven is more of a spritual point of view when you die and stuff like that, i think its nice to think that we are going somewhere when we die i mean their must be a reason for being on this earth right?

I consider death the next level of you as a person both spritually and physically wbat you do now just builds you the foundations and endurance to reach the next level that its unkwon to us.

I believe heaven is a place where their is no war, hatred only love and compassion no one is sick or in pain everyone feels good and happy to be with everyone the only thing i wouldnt like would be that you werent able to make certain choices or to have will that you only their to serve god(magical Wizard or watever) and do as he said while your in his kingdom.

But yeah thats me lol

You are thinking under the wrong idea of heaven. If you are a christian you would know that heaven is a place where you worship your lord and there really isn't much else to it. A life of eterenity serving God. I know so exciting huh? There is no society in heaven if you have faith in some type of religion such as christianity. heaven was created so people wouldn't feel bad about death. and the ways to get to heaven were then created to controll people and then religion was created to control those that control the word of god which is the way to heaven..... anyways read the bible and then you will know what heaven is supposed to be and what it is not. The bible is very clear on what heaven is but very hippocritical of how to get there.

Oh and don't worry about pissing people off. When it comes to things like asking quesitons you are being a leader amoung that many that don't. Go ask some that say they are christians and ask them a question about their religion. Many will not be able to tell you the answer but they have "faith"
