Life has plenty of worth, even if there isn't a specific goal/meaning.
How do you know (if there is in fact an afterlife) what it consists of?
I will never be cold, wet, tired, sad, glad, etc?
What does this even mean?
Are we going to be turned into emotionless humans?
What is the point of this afterlife if that's the case?
I accept that humans are part of the animal kingdom....the difference between a human and an ant (for example) is simply DNA.
We are both born, we live, and we die.
We KNOW that this is certain.
Past that we don't know if there is an Ant heaven and hell.....there could be, you don't know, nor can you disprove it!Logic and reason is all you need.

However, we have never seen this "NBA", we don't really know if it even exists.
Regardless, some people have chosen to train because they have a strong conviction that the NBA is real and they want to be accepted into it.
Others are not convinced and they feel that there are better things to do than train.
This is the best way I can answer your analogy.Logic and reason is all you need.

alex, I can't prove in an afterlife, nor am I an expert at it, no one can be. with that being said, a spirit would not have the same trappings as a human body. I was pointing out how this life is great with all the things we can experience.
there are many religions that see all things as holy, even an ant. Hinduism believes all things are Braham, but we have an issue seeing it because of the earthly manifestation it takes(maya) so ants, cows, trees, or anything is just as holy and as important as a human. they believe that because we are fooled by the veil of maya we will remain in the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth (samsara) they seek to free themselves from this cycle (moshka) to reunite with Braham.
this is why I was pointing out you lack in your knowledge of religion, because yes an ant is important to some and their life meaning equals that of all other things.

The problem with Humans is that we either do not believe in God or if we do do not see as God does. It does not have to be that way. Just think if we can see things through the eyes of Christ, how unselfish we would be in the human flesh. This is what Christ is trying to explain. though he is not with us he ways can live through us. If I could only be more like Christ we all should say every day. The world would be a better place.

That's all. He didn't say you have a problem, he said everyone has a problem. You may not see it as a problem, many do. That's a different debate.
