Writer's Block: Back from the dead
McDonalds, Ashley's silly self, BPA, me
If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not?

Cool, a question I love considering.  It automatically makes me think of FAAD.  Go figure.

So we'll assume that I believe in an afterlife of some sort, which would be true.  My initial answer would be yes, because such an experience could change one's life forever, whether or not it seems to be a good thing.  But then I remember reading that time is different in another place, if it exists, and I think of some of the pain should YHVH choose to send me to Hell, and I wonder if I have a second thought.

Hmmm.  I think that I can assume that I won't see Hell.  And I'm not thinking of purgatory, though it could exist.  If I get a second chance, I'm not sure that I wouldn't prefer to be destroyed at death. Thing is, I really don't fear it all that much.  The afterlife's not frightening. If I can get through the whole 'dying' thing, I shall be FINE.

FINAL ANSWER: Out of morbid curiosity, of COURSE I would do it.
