Im not afraid of death, but more afraid of how I am gonna die
I am not fearful of death, I am just not ready to go yet.
Ever since I was diagnosed with cancer and survived I haven't been afraid of dying. But, like calpol said, it's the how that worries me
I nearly died at age two and a half. I remember it all too, including looking down on my body.
It was a life changing event and I was lucky enough to have it early. I've always felt that surviving meant I was here for a reason. And I'm kind of looking forward to dying because I love trying new things...
If we do become balls of energy that hang around and annoy people, I think I'd kind of enjoy that. When I was younger I decided that as long as I had the use of my brain and could communicate in some form, I'd be happy to continue with life, no matter what happened. I figure being a ghost would be similar.
As for heaven/hell, well I don't think I'd be too afraid of that because I don't think we can really know what they'd be like even if they are real.
As for reincarnation, I've always wondered what it would like to be a dog (do they really just see black and white?) or a fly (great eyesight!)
And if it's just a long sleep? Well I'm packing enough into life that I'll need it!
So no, I'm not really scared of death, just more of the pain before it happens.
Living scares me more than dying. I make it a point to live each day as if it is my last. I have no regrets. Perhaps regrets are the root of the fear of dying.
Its the fear of the unknown, not only what happens next, but I agree with Calpol that being scared of how you die, is just as frightening. I wouldn't mind reincarnation, as long as I could chose what to come back as. I think I would go for a Chimpanzee, I'd still be intelligent, but wouldn't have to worry about things like bills, instead I'd be more concerned about how many bananas I could fit in my mouth, and I'd get to live in the trees.

Why religious people grieve so much about death and are 'scared to death' of dying if, when they die, the'll be with God forever? What's wrong with dying anyway? Your born condemned to death...Is it not?

I just went through one of the nastiest divorces on earth. My ex was wealthy, and we had no children. I did not work outside the home while we were married. He threw me out with the clothes on my back (literally) and...

OK - Let us talk about death. A morbid subject I know - but probably a good one and the basis of a lot of our past conflicts - fear of it - as it were.
