Who's afraid to die?

Ok, This is not really a theological question. It came to mind while thinking of global warming, nuclear holocaust and the Large Hadron Collider. Are you afraid to die? I can only speak from a Christian perspective when I say, "No, of course not!" But I would expect atheists to feel the same way. If there's nothing to look forward to, then there's nothing to dread either. I am afraid of pain, suffering, misery, and the difficulty felt by those left behind, but death itself doesn't really concern me at all. How do the rest of you feel about death?

Well, it depends on my mood. If I am down, I cant wait for my death. If i am relaxing at my computer at 1:00 in the morning listening to rap (like right now), i wanna live my life as long as possible.

That's a very shallow and immature way to look at it..... But I have a tendancy to be the EXACT same way, (OK, minus the rap).

A lot of the fear (and intrigue) with death, seems to be fear of the unknown. We spend so much time and money trying to stay alive, sometimes to the point that our whole existence is about cheating death. To me, I hate the concept of leaving loved ones, but beyond that, it's just another adventure.
Yes! And there is a man in Asia, about 117 years old (or somewhere around there), and he still jogs everday, he eats lots of vegetables. I am excited to see how long he will live

When I get 60, I'm going to get fat and lazy, and maybe take up smoking (JK). But seriously, I don't know how long I'd WANT to live.

I think the more time we spend getting "ready" for death, the less we fear it. If we deal with our earthlt responsibilities, and decide how we truly feel about an afterlife, we get a greater level of peace about the whole thing.
Out of general interest how long did Jesus spend preparing for the inevitable? (Serious question) L

I'll try to PM you the specifics tonight. But most theologians would give one of these answers: A) From the very beginning of the world. B) About 33 years. C) About three years. D) About a week or so.
