Re: Is there really a heaven or hell?
I think its all relative. I do believe that you go somewhere when you die but I dont think its permamint (Sp?) I think heaven,valhallla,etc. are places you go when your good and so you can be reincarnated as something/someone good. I think hell, hades, etc. is the same thing but bad people. So its a combination of heaven and hell (and the differenet names for it) mixed with the belief of reincarnation. Why then have the two places? So its easier to sort things out and so that once your bad and you go to hell you know when you go to heaven that everything is going to be so much better, and so that you learn from you wrong-doings.
