I do not believe in God. However, there are two ways we can live on after death. Our ‘spirit, soul’ remains conscious and sentient and exists as an awareness. There does not have to be a God or Gods for there to be another part to existence in the form of a soul or spirit.
Or, more likely, in the future they will dig up the buried dead and clone them from our DNA. I like the idea that in a 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 years time I can be reborn and live again.
Of course, over this period they may gain knowledge of all the bad things someone may have done. They can then clone them, and punish them for previous crimes. Fortunately I have been a good boy. Have you been good boys and girls?
If you’ve been bad, get cremated!
