    Why would it be wrong or odd not to fear death some people have different view points on things. and some people can not be afaid of death and then be scared of it the next day or minute.

    your first time in the school, did u feel fear?
    the first visit to the dentist,did u feel fear?

    to feel fear to the strange things is normal, its a response of the body to unexpected and unknown situations

    so i think:to be afraid to the death isnt wrong
    if u r not afraid of it... man, i respect u and i ask u this:would you commit suicide for just to prove ur braveness?
    Fear of dentists is understandable. Those guys are creepy. Fear of new territory, yeah, I can understand that. We as humans fear what we do not know. But EVERYONE knows death, be it from comas, dying on the way to the ER and being revived (don't remember what those shockey thingys are called--DIFLIBULATOR??), or losing a loved one to death. We all know of it's exsistence and are aware that people DO die, when it's their due time.

    With that being said, why should you fear something that is inevitalble?

    What about you guys? Are you afaraid to die? Do you think its odd when someone says they want to die? Or how they want to die?
    afraid? no. there is no choice in the matter. to be born is to die. how you come to that death- whether honorable or not is how one defines life. since death is always never more than seconds away and can come suddenly or slow and painfully, what can you do - is make the best of it while its there.
    the fear comes from what is on the other side, only the frame dies. that which powers the frame goes elsewhere. not a true death.
    pain- mental or physical drives the want for death. unfortunately pain is the lash all of life dances to. again ya do the best with what ya got.

    survive and succeed!

    WELL SAID!

    I think you just hit the nail on the head. It's good to see that there are others that view death the way I do. There is no point in fearing that which you have no control over. Now if you were immortal, I could understand the fear of death, because you'll never fully be able to know what death is. I could even understand WANTING to die under those circumstances.

    But as mortal, finite beings, we have no choice but to accept death when it comes.

    As I see it, like many others it seems, death is nothing to be afraid of. Even more so, some even long for it. Death is a natural, pre-determined (to some degree, we all die eventually) event. To fear death is somewhat like being afraid of sunsets

    Re: Is it wrong (or odd) to not fear death?

    I myself don't really fear death. I'm not saying that I want to die anytime soon or anything but I don't fear it. I think its because I beleive in heaven and hope that I'm good enough for God to accept into it. The only person I can think of who didn't die is Enoch from the bible. It states he didn't die and was carried away into heaven by a firey chariot(I think thats the right name for the story).

    Very good anoalogy! ^_^

    And to think I was just gonna say, to fear death is to fear life itself. Your sunset comparison is WAY better, LOL.

    Y'know, this thread keeps makin' me think of Death Note. Excuse me while I go and watch it on PSP. ^_^

    I laugh at the results of this poll because almost EVERYONE is afraid to die.
    Just wait for the moment death is close to you. You'll see all these 'no' voters screaming for their lives.
