everyone wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

fear is a natural response that kept our ancestors alive and propagated the species. people don't fear death has much as the pain often involved with death and what is beyond death if anything.

has for the question yes death is something to fear since it is in our nature, but life on the other hand isn't valued as much often demonstrated by the destruction of the environment and wildlife habitat

obviously life isnt something you should take for granted. But at the same time death shouldnt be feared. Be you atheist or part of any religion, either way the afterlife (unless hell exists) is gonna be a lot better then the shithole earth can turn out to be

I nominate both to be as an equivalent

You should go into things optimistically and make the most of it even if it looks really bad. That's my motto.

Life or death should be handled with comfort and the urge to seek the best out of them.

Fearing death is a part of life. Since we don't know when death is going to come for us, we should live like today is going to be our last. Have no regrets.

I don't think you should fear death and while I do believe you should value life, I think both life and death are to be respected: There is yet no way to take back a life from death, that "dead" state is permanent, and there are no do-overs. Life is energy, and all energy has potential. Death is an inert state. Yes, you can find spirtuality in physics; just ask Fritjof Capra.

In my experience, no matter how profound someone may sound, if they say that they don't fear death, they're 110% lying. From the bravest of soldiers, to the weakest of children.

Death shouldn't be feared, its a natural part of life. In saying that I don't like the idea of an end to my existence. All life should be valued, be it yours, other peoples and that of other creatures. However nothing should be arbitrarily considered. I'm not looking to start a debate on pro-choice vs. pro-life or euthanasia but the world doesn't just exist in black and white.

Death is feared because of its inevitability but you should channel that fear into something positive like living everyday to its fullest and making the most out of your life. Everybody gets 1, and thats why I hate odd numbers.

Death shouldn't be feared since it's somewhat of a prize. When you're old, you may be bored of life, and if you're depressed, you can commit suicide to relieve yourself. And life ain't something to be valued - people are born everyday, and everyone has a life, don't they? Otherwise you wouldn't exist. It's so common, It's like valuing grass.
