Religion, the Important Part of It, Explained.

I will tell you what is absolutely certain, and gets to the heart of the matter, what happens to the "me" that's "me," when I die?

There are three possibilities, and each shares a 1/3 probability of happening.

Things are worse, and this would include complete non existence. The only plus to that one is that you will not be around to moan the fact. It would also include, you picked the wrong religion, and the right one has terrible things in store for you.

Things are the same, Heaven has its problems, you are reincarnated as a human of approximately the same status as your current self, you can kinda be your current self all over again, etc.

Things are better. You picked the right religion, or God doesn't give a damn about which religion you picked, he says, "come on in, join the party!" You get your 72 virgins, your powder snow forever, your prince charming, or reunited with your loved ones, friends etc. Whatever you want, you get.

All three possibilities have an equal chance of being in our futures.

So, two out of three, if you are sort of happy now, you'll be sorta happy then, or even ecstatic. I like those odds.
