Why would nothing, being reborn, or heaven be worse then a horrible childhood?
Of course, there is a chance that life is good and great and wonderful as well.
However, the chance of that happening vs the chance of a horrible childhood where the child is unwanted vs heaven, rebirth or nothing.. why is heaven, rebirth or nothing worse?
(and to be clear... nothing is nothing, so you cannot have regrets about anything... because you don't exist anymore. So there is nothing to feel about that, after it is done... it is done.)
Sandra, think about this for a moment. If someone were to kill you now, just put one in between your eyes without you noticing, would you care? You might not be able to vocalize that care (as is a common side effect of deadness), but you care now, and future you
would've cared deeply had they not put a bullet between your eyes.
