This post is mostly for Christians.  I'm wondering what people think Heaven will be like when we get there.  Please put any of your views.  If you don't believe in Heaven or life after death, please don't post here.

Somewhere with eternal happiness.

I don't really know anything aside from that. It's a long shot when figuring this out.

Well, I'm really asking what you think it will look like. I generated this post by seeing how many people talk about religious issues here.  My teacher once had us write a bunch about what we thought heaven would be like.  I wrote 3 pages.  I think that it will be like a forest, with scattered cities and stuff.  It will always be the right temperature.  You could change the weather on a whim, and it would be clearer and crisper than this world.  I think it would feel more real than this world does.

Well I'm not a christian, but i do think that life continues after death. I think heaven will be a reflection of the individuals understanding of what it should be. Thus, heaven will be explicitly different for everyone, that is if you have finished enough lives here on earth warrant going to "heaven".

I agree, I think that what somebody will see heaven as will be up to them.  If someone really likes the ocean, there would be more beaches and stuff.

if you have finished enough lives here on earth

Do you believe in reincarnation?

In the bible it stated that heaven will be like a warehouse, where you will find all the good stuff you never asked god for. thats a metaphor? for... something.

Yes I do. Strangely enough I was raised an extremely devout christian, but I still remember having that moment of self-actualization when I was five and thinking, "If I wasn't me, I would have to be someone else." Anyone else have that experience. I would ponder who I would be if i wasn't me.

I'm patiently awaiting my arrival so I can fulfill my pleasures among the seventy-two virgins I was promised.
