Life and Death

It seems to me that life and death is as good as it gets.

The appeal of heaven is to live among friends without enduring any pain and with no fears of going to hell.  Well, the best evidence that nature has to offer indicates that life is all that there is, so the joy of living among friends in this life is for all practical purposes heaven.

Now the dread of hell is suffering without an end to the process.  Life is certainly not hell, for whatever sufferings this life may entail will end at death.  In that regard, death itself holds a similar appeal to heaven in that there is no more pain to endure.

And so it seems to me that life and death is as good as it gets.
