    Does the bottom line between the faithful and the non-believers come down to this?

    I have faith that when my body dies, my spirit is moving on..

    My brother believes that when his body dies, that's it, you're just a memory..

    I think that this conscious energy we call our spirit is so used to residing in our physical bodies that after death it retains certain properties, but only momentarily - maybe hours or years or decades.

    Perhaps not properties of sight, smell, hearing, or touch- but a consciousness nonetheless.

    But I tend to agree with Lumpy 2... this eventually disipates into the ether and we continue to exist only in the memories of the living.

    Sometimes, sporadic interjection of jocular brevity is a welcome respite.

    I've always thought that one's spirit is actually the memory that is left behind. And if you've lived a good life and have been loved by many, then you will remain here in good memories...essentially you will be in heaven.

    For those who are evil and have left only bad memories, then they are in hell. But even those people may have a family member who remembers them fondly...and to those people, they are in heaven.
