Can we talk about RIP? (rant) [View all]

Notice how, whenever anyone dies, threads are full of "RIP, (insert name of person who crossed over here)." Doesn't matter where--can be here, the NY Daily News, wherever. People just love to say "RIP" on death threads.

RIP--like the person is taking a long dirt nap and deserves a nice rest in all that dirt.

Which, we all know here, is pretty much B.S. Anyone who wants to learn about what happens when someone dies can find out easy enough and if they don't, it's probably sheer lack of curiosity that keeps them RIPin' away on the internet.

Really aggravates me. I think it annoys me because a) it's an easy thing to say, and b) it shows the person has absolutely nada, zero, zilch, nothing of interest to say about the afterlife.

And I'm not going to condescend to the idea that "nobody knows" what happens when we cross over and that I should be tolerant of other peoples' views on the afterlife. Eff that.

Yes, we do know what happens, or at least we have a good idea of it. Care to put some work, time, and effort into humankind's greatest question? Anyone can know.

Better yet, if the person has even a scintilla of aptitude, they can have some experiences with those who have crossed over.

But oh no, that's far too difficult.

Easier to type "RIP" and call it a day.


p.s. what set me off was the James Garner thread.
