    Since in my opinion the only reality is that which one believes exists then yes death does seems to be personified by the above listing does it not? (please don't take the "the only reality is that which one believes exists" at just that alone it is a very complex concept which discussion of does not belong in this thread)

    i believe that we do not meet a death but dying is just like faling a sleep (occasionally falling a sleep whilst in a bar brawl) and you just wake up in the next world. but i do beleive that on this next world there is a soul who destroys souls, a maintainer of balance, he could be siad to be "death" though in truth he is not, he is just a strong soul who works for the lord (azriel, don't ask).

    as for the angel of death in the bible i thought he was called azriel too.

    Death, as a being? Nah. Probably not. The only hooded figures with scythes I've seen are goths and cosplayers, and no way in hell are any of 'em Death.

    EDIT: Although it is possible, if said goth or cospayer was bulemic and very, very skinny.

    Did you even read the question? It's not about dying, suicide, or tempting it. It's about Death, The Grim Reaper, and is sometimes called The Bringer of Death. The spiritual/mysterious character that brings about death and an end to a life.

    I don't believe in The Grim Reaper or for that matter something keeping tabs on how many days, hours, minutes, and seconds you have till you kick the bucket. However, I do believe that there's some type of sign giving you notice that you're in the midst of death seconds before you die.

    trowble that is farther time not death.farther time like tells death like who's time is up!
    some spirites still wonder the earth because death was not there to take them to the afterlife because death could not be there because of a war or somthing the other reason could be they did unspeakable things.

    i think death is a beautiful woman.... so tempting but somehow you know Shell be the last thing youll ever see..... but its like you cant controll yourself, and you want Her so bad it drtives you crazy, to the point that flirting with Her isnt enough anymore... and you have to be with her.

    i wish my grass was emo so it would cut itself.
