Something is bugging me about the afterlife...

So basically it does not matter if there is afterlife or there isn't. the problem is that the soul is eternal. So what should we do for eternity? Forever. Ever! Even if we die, we continue, or maybe we don't but stay for eternity in darkness??

Well.. that is all in the case that we're unlucky and possess an eternal soul. Independent of what you do after death, with eternity it will eventually become a never-ending nightmare. But if we're lucky, our state in the afterlife will be one where we're not aware of eternity, one without time nor clear consciousness.

However I don't think we have something like a soul, and then the problem doesn't even impose itself. You might, at the beginning, feel afraid of eternal nonexistence, but it's just name calling; you won't be aware of nonexistence as you won't exist; and if you want, call it eternal rest (comes close, and sounds good ;)).

Yes Everything Matters.

2)

“Believe in the word of christ,” they replied “and both you and your household will be saved." Acts 16:31

Everyone will exist eternally either in heaven or hell WHICH WILL U CHOOSE

In my opinion, I'll be able to do whatever the hell I want for some time before choosing to be reincarnated, without my memory. I don't believe in Heaven and Hell, but I guess evil people will first get resurrected as something useless before finally becoming a human again. I don't know, I'll wait till I lie on my deathbed.

Even if there is an afterlife, it's best not to worry about it while you're alive. You won't get anywhere living your entire life planning for a future you know nothing about.

Exactly my point. If you want to worry about something, which won't get you anywhere no matter what you're worrying about, worry about something in your life rather than something that may or may not happen afterwards.

Perhaps we should move the discussion here.

YOUR LIFE ISN'T AT STAKE. WE ALL DIE ANYWAY.
IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR NONSENSE OR NOT, 1 DAY YOU WILL BE DEAD.

WORRYING OVER IT WONT GIVE YOU A LONGER LIFE.
WORRIES USUALLY SHORTEN YOUR LIFE.
