I'm glad they believed in an afterlife, because it probably made their time in hell more bearable.
But the much more likely result, that their existence was just snuffed out forever, is something I feel we need to understand.
Our time on earth is the only time any of us ever have. Once it's gone, it's gone.
The lives lost in any war, or for whatever reason, are not reborn in heaven or hell, or anything in between.
They just don't live anymore
oh wow you KNOW there's no afterlife, holy shit, someone contact the pope so we can make sure everyone knows that one jackass on the internet knows for certain there's nothing after life and we can wrap up the whole religion thing once and for all
