Only 8 weeks left!

So I've already started the countdown to my next vacation.  I'll be leaving in roughly 8 weeks.  I'm heading to the tropics for some scuba diving, which makes me really happy and I'm super-excited about it.  It got me wondering how many Christians are excited about going to Heaven.  Do they get excited when they think about dying, which is their trip to Heaven?  When they're told they're dying, do they excitedly count down the weeks like I do for my vacation?  If they're not told they're dying, do they happily consider each birthday to be one year closer to their trip to paradise?  These reactions seem to be fairly uncommon, based on what I've seen in my life so far, so one has to wonder if these people really believe in the paradise of afterlife or not.  What could be better than a trip to eternal paradise?  Shouldn't they be looking forward to it and just waiting until they can get the hell (poor choice of word?) out of here?  I actually believe I'm going on my vacation, so I can be excited.  Why aren't the Christians excited to die?  Could it be because they're about as sincere in their belief as parents are when they tell their children that the dog went to Doggie Heaven?

I asked some Theists if humans bodies involuntary 'flight or fight' reflexes, cause them any cognitive dissonance in regards to 'afterlife'...

I would have thought, being 'created' to go to heaven them the body wouldn't try to live as hard as it does...


PS. Enjoy your holidays.

" I'm heading to the tropics for some scuba diving"

Australia by any chance?

Interesting point.

Not Australia, the Maldives. I learned to dive on the Great Barrier Reef, in Airlie Beach. I'd love to get back there someday, as I'm very fond of Australia.

Airlie Beach is a great spot, that's for sure...

All the best with the Scuba Diving
