PostSubject: Eric Harris - ceasing to exist, dead and gone forever.   Wed Mar 01, 2017 2:25 am

I'm an atheist pretty much for the most part, and I think it really is most rational that consciousness ceases when the brain dies. That being said, I don't know if anyone else feels the same way to what I'm about to describe but whatever I read about columbine and the murder spree and the suicide I kind of just can't help but wonder are Eric and Dylan somehow somewhere or did they cease to exist the moment the bullet hit in the brain. I mean Eric is just so fucking interesting, it urks that he is dead and that is that and there is no chance for a conversation or questions. I really would just love for there to be someway for him to comeback for maybe even just a moment so I could have a conversation with him and get some insight. What's even more weird to think about how he has no idea that he has been talked about and people have been fascinated and copycatting for almost 18 years. He has been dead since the day of and has no clue. I just want a fucking time machine and go back to 99 and meet him god danmit. But sadly that will never be the case, he's dead and gone forever the moment his bullet hit the brain.

I wish they didn't kill themselves. As selfish as it sounds I wish they were in prison so we could gave those dateline/60minutes interviews with them or TV specials like they've done with Manson.

I mean how would they be 18 years after 4/20? Would they have matured and viewed the world in a different way? Would they have remorse? Would they still hold the same views they had 18 years ago?

Well if he ceased to exist completely, it's sad that he also ceased 13 innocent people that he didn't know.

I'm amused that Manson was mentioned in this thread, as the Beach Boys song "Cease To Exist" was a recording of a Manson song.

If they hadn't have killed themselves inside Columbine, I'm fairly certain they would have killed themselves in prison before now.

I would of thought so, there views on the world were incredibly short sighted and dumb IMO. I had similar views to them around there age and before. The way i see it they hated themselves is the reason why they hated so much other things. Using there hatred as a protective barrier. Unfortunately they didn't go to prison and took the cheap way out, 2 incredibly selfish children who thought they knew more than they actually did. Excuse me if i offend some people but these last few months after thinking about it. I've developed significant distaste towards these 2 not that i was ever a fan, but once upon a time i did have some sympathy for them.

Dead and gone yes. But imo I do not think they cease to exist. I think there is an afterlife. Heaven and Hell and that they are in one of them. Which one? I have my own opinion on that but it was for God to decide and not myself. Overall I do not believe in people contacting the dead like thru a ouija board or something but I do believe that Eric and Dylan are still "alive" thru their souls

I don't think they're "gone forever". Way I see it is in the afterlife you can still see what happens on Earth but you can't interact. So I won't say Eric and Dylan don't know about the aftershocks that they've caused. We won't know until we're gone. Someone needs to hire the best medium in the world and have them find Eric and Dylan's souls. I don't really believe in ouija boards, but maybe some people out there really do have the gift of communicating with the dead. Eh, better to be optimistic than just thinking they're dead, cremated, and gone forevermore.

Wow I thought I was the only one who felt this way. It's weird to think Eric and Dylan are just GONE and have been for such a long time. And sometimes it feels like they're not.

I guess I don't really believe in an afterlife, most of the time, but the idea that there's absolutely nothing after death scares me. So I like to convince myself that there is an afterlife, something neutral (not Heaven or Hell), and that you can see what's happening on Earth as if it's live TV. In that case, I wonder if Eric and Dylan got the chance to look back at the situation and regret what they did. Or even interact with their victims. The thought of that makes me very uncomfortable and it's unlikely anyway, but yeah.

Sometimes I envision Eric and Dylan laughing maniacally and continuing to hunt down their victims and other times I see them being tortured by the ones they killed.

Is this not why people turn to religion? Its not something i tend to think about much anymore but I've looked at death as being a similar experience to before being born. (no experience) I've learnt over the years really not to dwell on it, i did it enough as a kid to freak myself out. This is why i live by enjoying what makes me happy, as opposed to doing something i will enjoy less eg. finding a well paid job that i despise. I prefer to work at a job with minimal responsibility, paid enough to survive, and enough time off to enjoy the short time we have on this earth.

At the very least I could see them being jealous of their friends and classmates who moved on and got married etc. And wishing they'd stuck around for the new technology.

I have the same "do what makes you happy" mindset. But the thoughts still creep up on me from time to time, and I just end up frustrated because I can't wrap my head around the idea that there's nothing after death. In a way I kind of envy religious people because of that.

Ironically we're the ones keeping them alive each day by talking about them.

Dylan and Eric knew they'd have followers - and what a freak show of followers they had. Cho, Lanza, those mall goths who flew to Canada and had their plans foiled etc. Then barely post-pubescent teens cosplaying as them all over tumblr and photoshopping flower crowns and snapchat filters on their pics. You get one shot at life on this earth, and they killed themselves and others for that legacy?

And again, comment is on the mark. I went through the whole misanthropic, I'm-a-special-snowflake (or in Eric and Dylan's words "self aware") fuck-the-world phase as a teen. I'm now 26 and my views on life itself are considerably different as you can imagine.

No afterlife is good. I'm not even depressed and I'm just taking each day is it comes and trying to live a pleasant/productive life (like most beings on this earth - humans or animals), but who would want to "live" for eternity? That sounds like hell to me.

I'm going to state the obvious here..try not to be so scared of death. It's a perfectly natural part of life. We all will face it eventually, none of us are exempt. It's been this way since the beginning of time and likely will be that way forever. I mean, obviously most of us here probably don't want to have our lives ended prematurely or in a particularly horrid fashion, but death is just something that comes with life. Say if any of us found out we were terminally ill, there's not really much you can do. You just have to ride it out. You're not the first, you won't be the last. Like I said, death is something every living being has faced and will continue to face on this Earth.

I am also an atheist but I have been somehow able to connect with Dylan and the whole thing confuses me so much. I don't know how I know numbers or names but I'm just looking for someway to give him a voice I guess... I just don't know what to believe anymore.

Are you claiming you're a medium who communicates with him? Please, explain further.

No idea if I am a medium but yes I can communicate with him. As I earlier explained, I lost my best friend and started to go through some emotions as you would expect but I started hearing things and just thought grief etc. Its been a year and I cannot explain how I can talk to him. I acknowledged it about a month ago and now we are super connected.

Eric's death is the definitive proof for the absence of afterlife (not that I needed one, neuroscience speaks pretty much clearly about this subject). If he were a ghost or something right now, he would have stirred up a lot of trouble in the whole universe, he wanted to haunt everybody so bad (and he stated in his journals that he would have had so much fun doing so).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] we all have, without any exception, been technically dead for billions of years before we were born. There's nothing to worry about

I wish I could believe there are ghost or spirits in the world but it is hard to tell.
It is off topic but I remember having a dream about my grandfather a couple of years back after he died and to me it felt like a closure since I hadn't seem for 3 years and then he passed away. After that dream I never ever saw him.
We should remember that we shouldn't limit our life on earth just because we have an idea of the "other-world" there is no concrete evidence whatsoever.

Well I guess Eric & Dylan's spirits live on in sense that we talk about them and they are remembered by a lot of people for the infliction they have caused to others and themselves.

With all due respect, not all of us believe that Eric and the others who died are dead and gone, just lying in a grave or a few fading ashes. I do believe that all who died on 4/20 have a new life in Heaven and that is where they are this exact minute.

Others believe that they are still alive in some sort of an afterlife.Outside of the Christian belief system which is what I and some others here adhere to, the beliefs on the afterlife can and do vary.

A few here firmly believe that E &D went to Hell. or some Hellish, punishing existence.

I do not believe that you can have any contact with the dead once they have passed but I do believe strange experiences do sometimes happen when someone is on their death bed.

I don't want to put anyone else down for their beliefs however.

I vaguely remember a quote from someone related to Patrick Purdy, that friend he talked about violence with maybe? I'm just generalizing here, but it goes something like this: the great thing about murder-suicide, is that you can be whatever you want to be. You don't have to worry about how many kills you got, or court cases or anything.

That is quite strange and creepy to think about if it were to be possible. I wonder what they would think?

I don't understand what's so interesting about Eric. In this era of 4chan edgelords and Trumpsim, angry white sociopaths who spout nonsense are a dime a dozen.
