@klaatu51 and @LittleSally brought up that the thought of not existing is scarier to them than going to hell.

Do any of you feel the same? whats scarier to you?

  • Honestly don't find either of them scary. I don't believe in hell so that helps a bit.

  • Neither are scary. Death is a a part of life. I am not religious so I do not believe in a hell or heaven. It is normal to be afraid of not existing anymore, as a young child the thought frightened me. As I grew older I realized that many have died before me. Millions, billions have died before me. What makes my death any different. Nothing. Stop worrying about death and live your life, do not let it paralyze you. I believe in souls. Dying a good person rather than a shitty one should be the goal. Best of luck to you.

    • looks like im getting more answers then you hehe ;P

    • @asker generally lately i get less answers in my questions :(

  • I believe in not-existing anymore. It doesn't scare me.
    I don't believe in hell or or eternal torture in hell, thus it doesn't scare me..

  • They're both unpleasant to think about, but all things considered, I think it would be worse to have my soul be destroyed in a state of final and irreversible impenitence. If that were the case, then sin and evil would have the final word over me.

  • I don't think I can compare both. Eternal torture is something I can vaguely understand. Eternal non-existence is incomprehensible for my existing mind.

  • Not existing, by far.

    That would spell the end of everything
    at least I still have a fighting chance
    if I'm place into one of the circles of hell.

    • What do you mean? eternal torture means ETERNAL

    • Show All
    • but really in hell you aren't really doing anything anymore either... just being tortured.

    • Yeah I can totally see where you're coming from
      but the thing is, pain to me, is just another form of
      knowledge and experience.

      As long as I can learn even more, and
      gain further understanding, no pain
      is too painful. ^.^

  • I think hell is scarier because it's painful.

  • You still exist when you die, your body remains and slowly decays/decomposes.
    But depending on your belief, your consciousness may die, you might be reincarnated or either go to heaven or hell.

  • Why would you care about not existing if you don't exist?

    • Some people just can't wrap their heads around that concept i guess. though i also think its difficult to grasp the idea of being tortured forever too.

    • Well, if you are tortured forever, you feel pain forever. If you don't exist... you're nothing, so you can't think. It's like being dirt - you don't think, you don't feel, etc... you just don't exist

  • Non existence doesn't seem scary. It would mainly be an annoyance. A hell of punishment seems so absurdly unlikely I think I'd spend the rest of eternity laughing about it.
