    I personally would not mind it at all because on August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning GOD shown me in a vision the other side of death. It is glorious. I know what to expect and was given a sneak preview of where I will be going to, on the other side of death. In a way this does give me an advantage and I am in no hurry to go there because I have already been there and experienced what it will be like on the other side of death.

    No, that would be too emotional.
    I rather not know and just let it be over with all of a sudden.
    Hopefully when I'm old, after living a rich and fulfilling life.

    I don't want to know the day that I'm going to die ahead of time.

    No.  Something about the timing of death being ambiguous makes it less real.

    Yes, if I could, I would like to know so I can say goodbye to my loved ones.  But if it is going to be painful.. then I don't want to know.  After my late husband's fourth open-heart surgery, the doctors told him he got 5 years to live.  We just lived normally not thinking he was going die in 5 years.  And you know what?  He lived normally for 12 years.  Wasn't that great?

    It is better not knowing as it will be too many stress just to think of the coming days before death.

    But I do believe that when the day is near, we will have a sort of feeling that we are going to die. Again this is not for the case of people dying in disasters or accidents.

    it would have it's adventages, such as, if you knew that you were going to die when you're 93, you wouldn't be too afraid to take risks coz you'd know you won't die from them, so you may be able to enjoy life instead of worrying about it, but also, it could have it's disadvantages, you may not die but be in a vegetable state from the extreme bungee jumping you did, so it's a judgement call

    I used to think that I would, but now it doesn't matter one way or the other to me - for two reasons:  First, when it's over, I'll be dead.  Nothing I can do/say/think/eat/drink now is going to change that.  Second, I really believe wholeheartedly in living in the present moment - with hope for the future.  Today may well be my last day on earth.  If that's the case, I want to know I made the most of TODAY.  And, frankly, not a single one of us has an expiration date stamped anywhere on our bodies, and doctors can be wrong, like Rosie very clearly stated.  smile

    If I did. You cannot tell me this. Only God knows this date.

    Not a chance for then I would every day know what the date was and even though we know that we are closer to our death date we would be afraid and try to cram so much into our lives and never get any thing done just my thoguhts

    No, it is better to live life and not dwell on such things.

    Yes, this way it would be easier to set a major goal and stick to the actual dead line.  I think that the idea of tomorrow being a gaurantee would also leave the mind. It would also make it easier to retire.
