Fearing Death Unnecessary

    Aaron,

    I agree with you that death is nothing to be feared, but not for the same reason. It is so easy to be so “philosophical” when one still has 60-80 years to live, but you may not feel the same way as you approach death’s door. The problem that you and so many other people have is that you are applying terrestrial standards to celestial matter which are beyond our comprehenision. If the “afterlife” were just floating around on clouds, strumming harps, and praising God 24/7, as orthodox religion seems to think, I would be in total agreement with you.
    But it is not like that.

    Let me suggest that you watch the BIO channel next Sunday — the program “I survived…Beyond and Back” It is a new program that just started tonight (Sunday). It is not going to give you a very clear picture of what the afterlife is like, but it will provide some food for thought. Don’t be brainwashed by those atheistic college professors.

    Cool generalization, Mike.

    Shall I introduce you to the number of professors I personally know who are of various faiths?

    Making comments like “Don’t be brainwashed by those atheistic college professors” just makes you look like an idiot.

    @Mike: It is not going to give you a very clear picture of what the afterlife is like…

    How exactly do you “know” there is an afterlife? Before making unsubstantiated and unprovable claims, and chastising others for having views different than yours, perhaps you should do a little more studying yourself on the fallibility of the human mind, e.g., skepticism, epistemology, and the cognitive sciences.
