No DSMike, this is the only life you get. Once your body dies, it is over. Your body will rot in the box in the ground. There are no after places you go to, you're just gone. The memory of you may live in other's thoughts for a while, but you will be gone...poof. Better to live your life in the here and now then wait for happiness at death.

With the conclave to elect the next pope set for Tuesday, the College of Cardinals has been meeting all week to discuss the priorities of the church and the qualities its new pope must possess. Further, the College of Cardinals must also consider the attitudes of the Catholic people when electing the next pope.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Friday indicates that while 52% of Catholics said the church is moving in the right direction, 52% of those polled also said the church is out of touch with the views of Catholics in America.
