I'm hoping for further existence beyond this life for everyone (well, maybe I wouldn't get too bent-out-of-shape if truly evil entities were annihilated). But this existence is all I know about. I'm not sure I can explain why annihilation would scare me so much... it's not like I would know about it once it happened to me.
