     There are 4 kinds of people.

     1.)  Those that think they have not lived before and hope
          they will not live again.  (Grave diggers).

     2.)  Those that think they have not lived before but hope
          they will live forever now that they are here.  (Fundamentalists).

     3.)  Those that think they have lived before but
          now wish they could die forever.  (Spiritual suicides.)

     4.)  Those that hope they have lived before and hope
          they will live again.  (Immortals)

     Each group has its various religions that attend to their
hopes, needs and desires.

     Given the logic of the situation, one of them is right.
