    Yup, you’ll be scattered all over space like a dumped box of paper clips.

    The philosopher Schopenhauer said that “after you die, you will be exactly what you were before you were born.”

    When we die, we ARE dead, but our atoms get disorganized like the top of a desk.

    Not if I eat you, Pig. In that case you will be digested too.

    “Rearranged” might be a better term.

    Where do you think dust bunnies come from? Being dead just blows… around under the bed.

    Pig, when you die, you will first become a side of breakfast meat. You don’t want to know what you’ll become after that.

    They’re not really dead if we can find a way to remember them. Star Trek?

    A person, or even an animal is not the piece of meat they are temporarily occupying during their brief stay on this planet. The person is the light that goes out in the eyes when they leave that piece of meat. The meat can be buried or burned with great ceremony, eaten at a picnic, chopped into pieces and sold at a grocery store. Eventually, it’s dust. Doesn’t matter, because the person was never that piece of meat in the first place.

    Before birth, our atoms were all over this planet. We spend our lives taking more atoms in and, er, spitting out others. After death, our atoms spread out all over again. I’m figuring death is pretty much like how it was before we were born. I just wonder if I’ll miss out on the dinosaurs again.

    So, the Bible agrees with science then, or vice versa. “You were formed from the dust, and to dust you will return”

    In the Church of Frisbeetarianism, we believe that after death the soul flies up on the roof and gets stuck.

    Just think of it as more widely disseminated. (And your desktop won’t trouble you anymore. Ever!)

    One of the best headlines “The Onion” ever came up with was over a picture of the newest royal baby and beaming parents. “Raccoon Crushed To Death By Garbage Truck Hits Jackpot With Reincarnation”.

    Anyone who tells you he knows what happens after death is blowing unholy smoke up your coherent fundamental atoms!

    That’s one way of looking at it, Pig. And if you’re happy with that, so be it.

    Your belief-system may vary….
