I also think that death is feared because it is considered an evil, and we as human beings fear things that are evil, the problem is that if death is really an evil, it is one that cannot be avoided, so having fear is not the rational thing to do. However that does not mean that you should ignore it, imagine a kid who was brought up without fearing death, the kid would not care deeply about many things that we value, he would take everything for granted.

I should have said in my previous post that while I do not fear death, I am aware of it and this helps not to take things for granted, or maybe is not that I am aware of it, but that I have a healthy and rational fear of it, not an irrational fear like having fear of the ocean just because a shark attack was on the news. Having this awareness or healthy fear makes one able to accept it and still try to live one’s life fully.

From my Philosophy notes:

Victor Frankl who survived 3 years in Nazi concentration camps, was a psychiatrist and he began his sessions asking his patients, Why did they no commit suicide? By facing that question one begins to see one’s values and the goals one has in life.
Frankl discovered that the difference in surviving or not surviving the tortures of the concentration camp lay in being able to give a satisfactory answer to that question

An existentialist French philosopher called Albert Camus used to say that the only question that was important in philosophy was “Should I commit suicide?”

but why do u consider death evil I mean its not an entity to begin with its, u cant affiliate adjectives to that. BTW death could be good for us I mean as long as we know we might be in purgatory right now and after death there would be angels on white clouds with a harp playing slipknot or then again we could just face endless blackness
Oh man that would suck ass

i saw an episode of the outer limits where death quit. he got tired of killing, so he quit, and was talking to this doctor. he started noticing that although he thought no death would be good, people still got fatally injured...but didnt die. so people would just continue burning, never dying. continue living even if they were shot 27 times. and he realized death is necissary, even if it sucks ass.

I do not consider death an evil. I said that I think some people fear it because it is considered an evil.

By evil, I mean the opposite of Good.

None of us can win because death without life is useless and life without death is meaningless.

for those of you my age and older...when you see a group of teenagers acting like complete fucking idiots or making asses out of themselves, and being rude while at it, do you ever think "my fucking god, was i like that? i hope to fuck i wasnt!"

Deathshot would you just do the forums a favor and shut the fuck up about your fake multiple personalities and your little anger issues because you sound like a fucking 10 year old trying to threaten a bunch of retards. I bet you use a low raspy voice when you threaten people, don't you? And then threaten to show them your dark side which consists entirely of lowering your head and looking up with an angry face? Yeah, grow the fuck up. You're not scary or cool by any means.
