<Here followed a very long response full of religious references and scripture.>
I am sorry that you wasted your time on such a long response. Empty platitudes do no make something true. I understand that you want to argue for your viewpoint, as I often do. I see a harsh reality, and we are better off understanding the world as it is, rather than to believe that some supernatural force is looking out for us or is on our side. If you drive your car too fast around a curve, the laws of physics are not going to care if you hit a tree. Best wishes, John
It's a matter of belief John,& nothing more.
As my Uncle's close friend would say all the time..."We shall see what we shall see".
but not with any conviction because there is no credible evidence for
any religious belief. Religion is a matter of philosophy.
It is a question of do we trust the world as it is presented to us and
try to survive using the evidence of our experience and knowledge , or
do we believe that some supernatural force is going to provide for us,
for which we have no evidence?
People can choose to think rationally, but that means that they make a
distinction between those things that are speculation and those things
that are fact. People believe because they want to believe, which
means that their reasoning is based upon emotion.
Best wishes, John

1. Steve is rotting in his grave. There is no afterlife.
2. Steve is part of God like everything else. He has reunited with God.
3. He is part of some unknown afterlife.
I do not think that it is possible to know. All I do know is that I don't believe in the traditional religions, parts of which are evil.
