    I would certainly question the meaning of existence as well as whether or not whatever is in heaven doing the reasoning is really me.
    If you die and it turns out there is no heaven and you no longer exist, will you believe you don't exist?

    It wouldn't be a matter of belief. It would be strong evidence heaven existed. (there would always be the possibility of allucination).
    Of course everything now seems evident would stop being so. Personally, I would accept the idea of a God (not the religious ones) if after I died I would still have a conscience.

    Now I have no plausible evidence of God.
    Since I don't believe anything just because it is written or someone tells me so, God is incompatible with the reality I can experience everyday. Specially the judaic-christian-muslim god.
    If you believe a God because it is written, or someone told you so, or you feel it's presence, good for you. For me it is now enough.

    But what if you, being given another life after you die, began to question the existence of your previous life? Perhaps it was all dreamed up? Perhaps you were delusional? In effect, what real proof would you have that you lived in a previous life? Don't people even claim this today in regards to incarnation? How would being given another life change your attitude regarding God?

    And I wouldn't be able to think in heaven. My thinking is a result of chemical reactions in my brain, if my brain is not physically in heaven then it cannot think. As I said, I would question both my existence and whether it is truly me doing the thinking. And of course whether I am truly in heaven.
