Why is it depressing? I see death as the ultimate answer for everything. Makes me curious. If I die and there is nothing, bam, no more suffering, nada, i won't even notice it. If there is something after it, then wow, there is something after it! Oh!
To be honest, I spend my time pursuing knowledge. I want to learn as much as I can before I die.If I believe in God I wouldn't give a # because I'd know everything in the end anyway, in heaven. haha..

I'm agnostic too.
I don't think anyone can know for sure what happens to our "self" after we die, that can only ever be a belief.
If there is a higher power or god, then to know would defeat the meaning and purpose of this life we have.
