People who believe in an afterlife tend to believe that it will be substantially better or substantially worse than the life we presently lead; but this is only to say that the afterlife will be different to this life. It’s not clear to me why this follows from the initial position. Why mightn't the afterlife (assuming such a thing) be exactly on a level with our life? Why mightn't it be exactly like our life?
