I don't believe in a christian heaven but I hope that when it's my time to pass I'll see my mom again. That we can enjoy each others company like we used to. I pray that I can see her again despite my lack of faith. If there is a higher power I'd hope that she's a forgiving and empathetic diety who truely understands love. If I see my mother in a Jewish afterlife, I'll cherish it. If I see her again in Valhalla, I won't ask how I got there. Maybe the Johova's witnesses are God's chosen people but then again, maybe we all could be.
I'd sooner prescribe to religions that base their philosophies on ideas like karma.The diety that I'd hope for is one that values people for their honesty, moral integrity, and compassion. The Christian God that's frequently thrown in front of me simultaneously hates and loves gay people depending on who you ask. If you ask Bill O'Rielly, supposedly God favors North America but I'm sure Vladmir Putin would disagree with that claim. People have created God, and God has the ability to be a positive or a negative force depending on who wields her.
I don't believe in heaven because the asshole giving sourmons down the street just didn't convince me. If we're all on this planet together, then we all go to the same place when we die. Hell is on planet earth. Shoot my body into space, or else do something to make this planet better for the generation that will bury us. You can't take your wealth with you.
