    i've noticed that some people seem completely comfortable with what atheism will mean for them...i'm not

    i don't socialise.
    does it make everything ok when you socialise?
    lots of people on here seem to put lots of value on having friends..."i want to drop out of uni because i don't have friends" etc.

    Don't fear death whether I'm socialising or not. I'm ready for death any time and look forward to meeting my pal Lucifer.

    I dont know really, I dont fear death, but I have a huge fear of not having made the most of my life. I am athiest, and have a pretty good social life, but I dont think these contribute to my views. This may come from having been through a lot, and staring death in the face, I dont know. There is a quote from mark twain I like: ''The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time''

    hmm weird but interesting question. As somebody who has been popular and a social pariah at various stages I'd say that I thought less about my impending death when i had lots of 'friends' but i didn't think about life then either so it wasn't much of an improvement. One or two good friends proved to be all i needed.

    Absolutely. Two minutes with a typical teenage girl and I'm ready to jump off the next bridge.

    I guess if you keep yourself busy with the present then there's no need to think that far ahead all the time.

    I fear ageing, but not death.

    What makes you fear death? The unknown?

    I'm **** scared of death. Complete nothingness, of course I won't be aware of being dead but the thought is chilling. I didn't ask to be born but now I'm going to die.

    Fearing death has nothing what-so-ever to do with socialising.
