    I guess I'm a bit scared of the unknown. However, I don't really think about death much at all...I'm more worried about how painful my death will be, rather than the prospect of actually being dead.

    No. In fact, I look forward to it, whenever it may be.

    I don't understand how people can be scared of the inevitable... it's like being scared of puberty or the possibility of getting wrinkles.
    I would say "life goes on", but in this case...

    The thought doesn't scare me. I'm actually interested in what happens next (I don't believe in heaven etc), but I am interested in how being in a state of oblivion would work. I'm sure it won't just be blackness, because you need you're brain working to acknowledge the blackness.

    I'm not keen on a painful process of dying, or dying early however.

    Oh yeah? why is that? (Here's my guess: you're either very religious and can't wait to go to heaven or where ever - or anti-religion and can't wait to prove them theists wrong)

    I'm atheist. When I die, my organs will be donated to those who need it most, and my body donated for scientific research. I have no reason to believe in an 'afterlife' or any of the thousands of religions or gods out there. You guessed wrong. I'm not quite sure how one can prove 'them theists' wrong by dying, since, well you know, you'd be dead. Try again. :rolleyes:

    Lol no purely on the basis of the fact that I used to watch the Grim Adventure of Billy & Mandy as a child and that always made me think that that is what death is like, haha.

    You look forward to death so you can donate your body to science?

    I was dead for countless years before I was born and it didn't inconvenience me in the slightest.

    Only slightly worrying thing is I pretty much know already how I'm going to die.

    Nope, it does not scare me. I've been dead for billions of years before this and that wasnt scary at all.

    Well, even if you don't believe that there is life after death, there might be, no one is sure. A lot of people are dying young these days
    Not really, life expectancy in the UK and probably overall in the world is continuing to increase, more people are living longer than say 100, 200, 1000 years ago.

    Nope. I just look forward to death, it's not something I'm scared of, if it happens then it happens - but don't take this to mean I actually want to die, obviously I'll do the best I can to stay alive.

    I think death is NOT inevitable, there is a chance that we will reach a stage where science will make us forever young. Scientist are constantly experimenting on rats and other animals trying to extend the life span and it is working...sort of . Well there is room for improvement, but we should not scrap the idea of getting genetic treatment which would rejuvenate us in the near future.

    This might seem that i would be afraid to die, but actually i am quite curious of what happens when you die and ain't afraid of it at all.

    This. They do say immortality is only 50 years away.

    Not really. Each time I've decided to kill myself I've chickened out, not from the fear of death but the fear of it going wrong. A lot of things are worse than a quick, painless death.
