My six year old son asked me this while watching t.v. tonight. We've had discussions on this topic before, and he already knew my answer was going to be no. He came back with, "But if you don't believe in heaven, you wont get to go." Then after thinking for a few seconds he added "you'll get wings!" Like that would persuade me to change my mind.
I told him, "Look, I would really like to believe that after we die, we could still hang around, and be with each other. That we could spend eternity together. But I just don't see how something like that is possible. It's not that I don't want to believe, it's that all the evidence I can see tells me it isn't so."
Then he started talking about the afterlife, and informed me that if he dies before I do, he is going to leave heaven, "walk right thru those golden gates" in his words, and come haunt me, so I wont have to be alone.
Isn't he just the sweetest little boy?!
