Death is inevitable; no matter how badly some wish to ignore
it. Those who don't ignore it seem forced into either
speculating, or buying into someone else's speculation. So
much of the latter, unfortunately, seems to be spiritual blackmail
by people who want their followers to comply.
A quick examination will reveal more paths in agreement than disagreement on the broad details. And only one path has branches which teach an either/or between blissful reward and eternal punishment. Then again, look at the teaching at the root, and you'll see reason to doubt the speculations of some "teachers".
And the final analysis might not be so bad.
