Writer's Block: Back from the dead
If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not?

When I first read the question my answer was yes. It would be a wonderful experience. But as I ponder on it, I've realized that it will heavily affect my whole future..

I'm a catholic and one of the teachings in the bible is about the afterlife. I believed that there is a thing called afterlife which is classified into two : Heaven and Hell.  If I've answered yes and I ended up going to heaven. I think that I would not want to come back anymore and just continue being dead. Do you think a person would choose to come back to a life full of hardships and pain after experiencing the bliss of paradise? I don't think so. If i ended up going to hell that would not be good because if i come back i think i would spend the rest of my life thinking of the things I've done and why did i do wrong that made me end up to hell. My whole life would be full of regrets and resentment.

So my answer is a big NO! It's better to just believe in afterlife. At least you will have a path to walk , a goal to pursue and an ending you'll look up to .
