Religious people why is the afterlife so segregated?

If you think about life on Earth there are so many different types of living things. Plants, animals, microscopic organisms and yet I'm supposed to believe there are only humans in heaven? Even among us humans there are so many different cultures and lifestyle choices that coexist on one planet. Both good and evil people are held accountable for their actions without having to be separated by different dimensions. So why can't it be this way after death? Why should I assume there is only straight people in heaven, or only Muslims, no Christians, Jews and gays? This is as ridiculous as saying there are only men in heaven or only black people. Is diversity a sin? What about the handicapped? Do the mentally challenged even have souls if animals do not? If God expected us all to share the same universe while we were alive why should that change when we're dead?

Update:

Ok Tim, so in heaven we've got people and angels that's it. Meanwhile, on Earth there are thousands of different species living among us and possibly even aliens from other planets we don't know about, but they are no where to be found in the afterlife?

    It isn't.Β  There shall be plants and animals in heaven, just as John the Revelator saw in the Revelation.Β  Birds, primates, carnivores, herbivores, etc.

    Why would you believe there are only people in heaven when the Bible describes many different classes of angels among the heavenly host?

    This is the problem with all organized religions-- they write the "rules" based on their own particular beliefs, not what is universally true. The afterlife doesn't work that way and all man's religions have it wrong.

    Heaven is a spiritual domain, sport.

    Colossians 3:11 KJV β€” Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

    Galatians 3:28 KJV β€” There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
