I'll top that, and give you an example of one:

I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can't say it wasn't interesting. My lifetime's memories are what I have brought home from the trip. I will require them for eternity no more than that little souvenir of the Eiffel Tower I brought home from Paris. (Roger Ebert, in a journal entry titled "Go Gently into That Good Night")

The article this came from: ... bert-0310/

has the title "The Essential Man". There's something for you to shoot for. If all else fails serving as a plaything of god, with a soul, and all. While waiting for death, you can always just live life as a human being.

So tell us all about what the bible promises for eternity. What do you get back for your trouble? I'm unconvinced.
