Get over it.
It's just death. Happens all the time.

Arthur C. Clarke wrote the book 2001: A Space Odyssey. He was a science fiction visionary who inspired countless people to write and just as many people to become scientists and invent things he proposed in his books. We can't ignore him because death happens all the time.

Did I say ignore his work? No.
Of course his work should be respected, but there is no point in mourning his death.

Yes there is. His work. There won't be anymore of it. He was still working on things you know though most were collaborations. Any other insights he might have had are now lost to humanity as is his brilliant mind. All people are not equal. He stood out among men and therefore deserves to have us mourn his loss.


He didn't stand out to everyone.
You believe his work to be brilliant and mourn the loss, but other people may have this man at the bottom of the list when it comes to their "100 most brilliant minds," and could care less if his work was lost.

He is not the only brilliant person to have died without being able to give all they had to humanity. Many have gone in the same circumstances, should we mourn them all? Or, should we accept their deaths and get over the fact that their work has been lost.
Yes it sucks that he may have held the answer to existence and now we may never know, but thats life.

Lots of people die, you shouldn't give threads to only the famous ones.

Then why should I get over it? People who do not think he was great won't mourn to start with. You told me to get over it. I also see nothing wrong with mourning the loss of the great minds. We can move forward while remembering them you know? I kind of see where you are coming from....I just disagree with you.


I can understand where you're coming from as well. I was just giving my opinion really, though it was worded wrong.
