    I'm not afraid of death, I'm just afraid of dying.

    Sudden death? Nope, you're gone before you get time to think about it. Death through sickness? depends on which sickness it is. Some like kidney disease you just go to sleep. The human body allowed to function properly will be very comfortable coming and going, you don't remember being born but just the thought of it its gotta be scary if you did recall birth of yourself. I have read (and experienced) Kidney shutdown, I recovered from it but I got a first hand account of what dieing with kidney failure is, you just go to sleep, matter of fact, you can't keep your eyes opened. I read that when the body goes through its shutdown procedure, the kidneys are the first organs to shutdown, you go to sleep then the other organs shut down.. Very peaceful-- This is of course normal passing of old age.. My neighbor passed away she was 97, had alchimers, (sp) she didn't even know she was on her way out.. Diseases like dementia and alchimers can sometimes be looked at as a blessing, assuming you are as old as my neighbor..

    I had never thought of the positive side to Dementia and Altzheimers.

    I THINK I GAVE YOU A THUMB DOWN ACCIDENTALLY. PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL REPAIR IT. OK?

    @itsme, no worry, No big deal, I do it too once in awhile.. :)
    Nope because I know where I am going......

    I don't fear death, it's the journey to it that I don't want to experience. Hopefully I will be blessed and just go in my sleep.

    Life is short, and it's just the beginning of our existence in eternity. I am actually looking forward to the afterlife, but I do what I can to enjoy each day.


    It's a great comfort to have faith.

    I think dieing and death is just a part of life itself maybe its the fear of the unknown after death that we fear or the fear of not having family and friends ever again that we fear we can boogle our minds down with thoughts about this until our time on earth ends and still will never have the answer so frre your minds up and stop worrying about something you have no control over

    I dont fear death.I just dont want to know how and when. I know where i am going so thats ok.

    No, at my age I don't fear death, just how it happens kind of scares me...I hope to go relatively peacefully..have had enough pain already in this lifetime, both physically and emotionally

    We all do it.

    I fear the anticipation of death, but not the actual process of death, well, other than pain. Once you're dead there is no regret, despair, anguish or happiness for that matter. Religious people may disagree with me, as is their right, but I think that at death the chemicals in your brain simply cease to react and you slide into oblivian. Simple nothingness.

    The Bible agrees with you at Ecclesiastics 9:5 "that dead are conscience of nothing at all." But the hope is in the resurrection

    some say its not the journey its the destination,others say its not the destination its the journey. i say its both. enjoy your journey, travel the high road and death becomes life.why fear death when you know your destiny. i think its harder to live than die.! besides you cant escape death!

    Yes. Have several socially accepted bad habits all of which can put me in a box. They all cause much physical pain should I be afflicted with their side effects.

    Nope. I don't fear death, I fear not living life to the fullest.

    I fear dying and not being with GOD I've lost 6 members of my family and at the funeral everyone spoke on how they loved the lord and to be honest I didn't see that in their lives. I just don't want to be a hypocrite .I hope that me admitting I am a sinner and asking JESUS in my life is all because that all I have to hold on too. We won't truly know until we see the other side! One friend told me to look at the life of a butterfly an how they change from a caterpillar in to a butterfly, and example of death to life.Living in the world on the ground and then blossoming to the air to fly free.

    absolutely not because i know i'll be in a better place than this! My father has prepared a mansion for me and i am eager to be there!

    bring it on i say

    doublehelix

    i shall give you a TU because you have zero :)

    No, death will be my trip home, but no one wants a lot of pain, I have seen pain in others and had a lot myself, wished I could die, but God had more for me to do, so here I am. Love, Randy

    no, only the manner in which I may die, I do not have strong religous beliefs, I hope its a peacfull end near the ones that matter to me

    mmmm hmmm.

    Why should I?  It is the beginning of everlasting life to be with God in the glorious heaven.

    What is there to fear but, fear itself?

    it doesnt worry me WHEN i die,its HOW i do concerns me.Like everyone i hope for a peaceful and painfree end.And although i have no strong religious beliefs im convinced theres another life after this one and there i will meet up with my parents and everyone else dear to me. Theres a book,i think by Raymond Moody,called life after life.Try and borrow a copy as it makes perfect sense

    I BELEIVE, THAT OUR SPIRIT WAS WITH GOD,BEFORE WE WERE BORN.IN THE BIBLE GOD SAID I NOUE YOU BEFORE YOU WERE BORN.THERE IS NO FAYVER ,IT GO FOR ALL OF US.FOR SOME ONE TO SAY WE ARE JUST AMINAL THAT MAY BE TRUE.THAT LEADS ME TO THINK WHOS REAL THE SPIRIT,OR MAN THE AMIMAL WITH A SOUL ,BODY spirit TO COMUICATE WITH GOD IF HE CHOUSE TO DO SO.I BELEIVE OUT spirit NEVER LEAVES GOD. JUST OUT BODYS.THAT IS WHY I THINK GOD PRAYER FOR US SAIDS ,ON EARTH, AS IT IS IN HELVEN.THIS IS THE RESON I BELIEVE THE SPIRIT OR REAL, AND WE WERE CREATED BY GOD. AND GOD IS SPIRIT.
    no
    absolutely not

    Not one bit. It's an exchange of one existence into another. I have nothing to fear. God loves and does not know hate. Hate is for humans. Hate is an emotion belonging to this world. It does not exist in heaven as it does not exist in God. The real God. Not the man/god .

    You're annoying and you're pushing me further away from your man/god and his bible. It's true. Old people become like children who don't know the meaning of no. God loves me, Jesus is too busy trying to straighten out the misguided Christians to worry about me.

    Stop believing in a being that doesn't exist and he won't be able to make you do anything.

    That man/god loves you..... Love, Randy

    Headless Man

    Sorry, the devil made me do that.....lol


    God bless, Love, Randy

    no, only the manner in which I may die, I would hate to survive a stroke or accident leaving me brain damaged, I hope at whatever time my life ends its peacful, and to be  near the ones that matter to me

    The death is just an illusion. No death. Just body changing and reincarnation.
    no im not. in battle i will die any day aka death is not my friend or aenamy. its nothing to me.

    I'm ocd about death!
