I always wondered this about 'heaven' too. The thought of losing all of our memories, our identities, our experiences we had on Earth seems like a really depressing concept to me. Like loose_lips said, wouldn't removing the 'bad' part of us, or removing our 'sins' from us completely change our identity and who we are? Everything we do on Earth, whether it be good or 'sinful' makes up the person we are today. We've grown from our actions, learnt from our mistakes, made plenty of memories whether they be pleasant or unpleasant. The idea of swiping the slate clean seems to make our lives on Earth be so pointless and makes the idea of heaven pretty depressing, IMO.
