If we salute people who die with a RIP, that means that we agree that there is life after dead.

Correct??

Rest is an indication of continuation.

There is evidence that the term has been used BC.

It won't hurt anyone to wish the dead a peaceful rest

I associate R.I.P. - Rest In Peace with meaning that after living this life, they deserve a rest....an eternal sleep from which they will never wake, so I wish it to be peaceful to ensure that nothing wakes them, and that they have their earned, deserved Repose from life.

I don't believe in life after death, I believe that death is the end.

but if it's the end there's nothing, not even rest

The idea of reincarnation has been around far longer than the idea of a "heaven". Does that make it right and a "heaven" wrong? Maybe they are wishing the person a good rest before the next life.

That's the point ; wishing the person a good rest before the next life, and it is a proper salute.

I don't know why you mentioned that reincarnation has been around far longer than the idea of a "heaven" - it seems you want to debate one versus the other.

Infact I believe that there is a connection between reincarnation and [what we call] 'heaven', both are not wrong. It's my personal spiritual principle of belief.

Not at all. They are not mutually exclusive. For instance, the Germanic tribes believed that you would be reincarnated in your own bloodline but they also believed you could go to their version of heaven. (Different religions all have their own version of heaven which is why I put it in " ".) Heaven is the name Christians give it. It goes by many other names. The Norse, for instance, believed you could go to Valhalla or Fólkvangr.

I believe that when we die, nothing happens. I don't believe that there is an afterlife, a heaven, hell, reincarnation, ghosts or anything like that. I believe that there is nothing. That the switch is turned off never to be switched back on again

I mean "rest" as in life is hard and tough, and they need to stay asleep forever as the proper end to a sometimes quite cruel existence - a forever "sleep" because in that persons terms their life has been "forever" to them.

That's just my beliefs anyway.
I don't know the correct way to describe the feeling I have about it....but it makes sense to my heart even if it doesn't make sense on a screen.

(Living) Peace to you all.

When we speak about humans we usually see their bad side. I mean crimes, wars terror, cruelty, descrimination, etc. etc. There are too many and yes maybe they f**ked up the world, but I dare say that they are the minority of humans.

Humans are wonder, brave, intelligent, sentimental, loving and much more. Have you ever admired humans for their positive qualities? How could mother nature make such wonders and then demolish to nothing? Are we humans that ordinary and simple? It is this what I find difficult to believe.

And if the laws of nature have no purpose for me, why I was not born in Africa? or why not the son of a prince? if nature has no justice, then nature must be the worst thing that ever happened on this planet.

Octo is right, she has seen too much. But that happens to everyone according to his/her beliefs, if you believe in something you see your surroundings and incidents that connect to your beliefs and strengthen them.
