All that you say above is surely vindictive, but more importantly false, because unlike you I have actually done research into this matter. It is true that everyone fears death more than any other thing. It is a biological necessity. Life wants to stay alive. Don't believe me? Kill yourself right now! Yeah I thought so! While you say that I cannot know in and of myself, neither can you know to the contrary, in and of yourself. But at least I can know with a plethora of scientific data to back me up, as I trust in the scientific experts, as I review the data and compare that with my life long journey of 55 years, I find that their findings are consistent, so I trust in them. It is the same with everyone that speaks, that they are in fact a culmination of all knowledge, of others, that has come before them, that they are exposed to, that they compare to their own experience, so as to speak of it, with as much certainty as anyone can have.chaz wyman wrote:But what you need to do is qualify your statements by saying you have no right to say them.SpheresOfBalance wrote:Of course sometimes I forget to fully qualify my statements, often like most people, I take certain things for granted, I believe them to be self evident. What I should have added was "as death is what all sane men fear most, ..." Of course this is the way I see things, you may see them differently, as obviously do, those insane men. At least all but those that do so, to save an innocent, at the very moment, that the innocent is certainly to be killed, where their sacrifice, shall save the innocent, which really has no bearing on what they fear most, as one cannot query them, after the fact.Arising_uk wrote:Is it tho'? Many appear to be able to give their lives for many reasons. I agree that most would avoid dying if possible but to fear death appears to be an exercise in futility if one believes that one is inevitably going to die. For myself I fear dying before I've achieved certain things, I also fear illness and infirmity more than dying. Of course I can only base this upon the few limited occasions when I've thought "I going to die right now".
As you cannot know all sane people, you cannot assess what is their maximal fear. So this statement is beyond your ability to make, being not a possible part of your experience. Only megalomaniacs demand to make statements that you are beyond their possible experience.
Why would anyone fear death anyway? There is nothing more certain than death.
It seem to me a very childish thing to hang on to such a fear.
Maybe you are just a pussy?
And are transferring your cowardice to others
Do you now feel a sharp pain in your foot? Only if you truly be intelligent!
