The belief that when someones dies they "go to a better place" Anonymous 139198

So this has been on my mind for weeks now, and I'm wondering what exactly the implications for this saying is. For religious people especially, there's the notion that when someone dies they go to heaven where everything is better and there's no more pain. Even some non-religious people have this idea that you at least gain a sense of peace and "ascend" to a higher, better place. And I've just been wondering, if such a god or creator or whatever exists, why the hell did they make Earth rife with suffering that only through death can you be at peace? Like what about the rest of us living people, do we not deserve happiness too? Why do we have to die in order to go to this so called better place?

When you are free from your mortality and from the existence as a concept - I think it might be really better

Well because religious people, especially those who believe in the abrahamic religions think this place IS suffering and a punishment, mortality and life are not valued because according to them we’re not supposed to be here in the first place but we are because adam and eve ate the forbidden fruit. As for non religious part of it, what >>139200 said.

There is also the Islamic belief that we were put here to fulfil our purpose and that living is not meant to be suffering but a noble act. I personally like this view the most.

The “purpose” is worshipping god and being a muslim to go back to him in the end because life on earth is worthless. Stop romanticizing it it’s the same damn thing kek

I'm glad you managed to take your first step into existential thought OP, best of luck on where that takes you.

that's not quite right, or at least for Christians it isn't. it's less like living is inherently unbearable so much as it is currently in the state of being severely flawed, and after the apocalypse and what not, it will all be fixed. In the mean time, everyone stays in the waiting rooms of either heaven or hell, with the former waiting for their resurrections after going through their first time of being alive.
