salvation in five minutes

I recommend believing in some kind of religion or path in life. I came to this realization after have a Near Death Experience when I was younger and was not a believer. I believe a person can believe in any one of the many and common religions out there that promote justice, unity, and harmony but with in that religion must fully believe that somehow, someway they are "destined for a good afterlife" . If a person does this even once in their life, I think at least a part of their spirit will be saved.

Ummm, I agree but now I am so curious about your near death experience! You can't mention it then not share! What happened? I'm glad you're here to tell about it.

I had the complete opposite experience where no belief in an after-life has made me realise just how much everything counts. In other words I should try to good because all that is going to be left behind is what people remember of me. The very chance of me being here at all; all of the people that didn't make it past the ice-age, disease and famine, I feel blessed but not in a religious way. More in the same way as winning in a gamble.

I should add I am absolutely willing to tolerate any belief that is used to good ends so I'm not against religious people and certainly not you Jeff. I would certainly like to think I can be good without belief in an afterlife.
