    Yes. The less we know about our demise, the better. No worry is likely to be registered. Erratic behaviour to make amends before dooms day is eliminated

    Why do you ask? I don't know the reason for your asking but I think it's not for us to know except in privileged  circumstances.
    Most people were told that they are about to die but weren't told when - 'the exact time'.
    It's not for mere mortals  'humans ' to decide such dates. Death is an appointment  but no one know the time. It is all kept secrete by our Creator and maker God. These times has been set by God. Read Ecclesiastes Chapter 3.
    He has given us eternal lif and this life is in his son John 17:3. Life is a gift to be enjoyed. Death physically speaking is a passage to enable us to be with Him forever after our sojourn on earth. The worst dead is Spiritual death that would lead to spiritual death and separation from your Lord eternally. Jesus had conquered death for all Man kind so that we will no longer be afraid to die for he has broken the pangs of death.
    I am okay the way the Creator has set His times and Seasons; after all who am I to question what he did. His works are perfect!

    Yes. Ever since the Fall of Man, if you believe such an event, regarding Adam and Eve, man has been cursed to suffer and face the ultimate evil of all--Death. However, by following the path of God, again if you believe, Man can overcome this evil as God has; evident in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    Nonetheless, from a non-religious point of view, the only reason why Humans fear Death is b/c Death is truly unknown to the living. As Socrates stated, it's unwise to be fearful of that which we do not know. So, It is a good thing to be unaware of the date of our individual deaths b/c if we were to know the date of our deaths then Life would loose a certain sense of meaning. I mean, humanities greatest gift is to eventually die and move beyond this world.

    Yes because if we knew when we were going to die we would live being terrified and that's not living.

    I'm answering this question purely from the heart. If I knew when I was going to die my life would seize to matter in the way it does now. All thoughts and actions would circulate around my time of death. I don't think this would be positive. I fear I would be living in the shadows of my death and miss out on so much of my life. I don't dwell on death. I embrace every day of my life.
    A long time ago someone asked me my favorite colour. I said blue. They replied. Yes! but what shade? At the time I didn't know, but I took the time to find out. My favorite shade of blue, is the deep blue of the sea after a storm. Living for me is seizing every second because I want to: because I 'm happy to be alive.

    Sure, I mean knowing the date of our death would probably put us in an overwhelming depression and leave us miserable.

    It could be good and bad. When u know u will be terrified. But u can ask God for forgiveness to all sins before you die. I mean those who get diagnosed with cancer and have 6 months to live. There will be time to ask God for forgiveness and pay the debts they have. Tell sorry to thier family and friends and ask them for forgiveness. Get off the hook.

    Yes it is a good thing so that we can live everysecond of every day as though it might be the last. We could never change the finality of the last day anyway so why lose any sleep over it.
