Fear of death
World kick_dog 
Why do you think we fear death ? Our instincts don't want us to die either? Should that make us think that life after death is worse ? No atheists.
2018-06-12 23:17
i think it's the fear of unknown rather then death itself

Well, but when you're near death situation i dont think we fear "the unknown" but we fear to die instead
2018-06-12 23:21
if you were sure the life after death were better would you be that afraid to die?
2018-06-13 10:08
Cant really answer this question, but i think yes. Some very religious people think that afterlife is way better and i think they still fear to die

i'm an atheist but i believe in 2 things after death: 1. the spirit remains idk i watched this guy "Huff Paranormal" 2. we reincarnate
2018-06-12 23:23
but that isn't really atheism is it? Atheists think that there is no life after death. Believing in reincarnation is not atheism

First of all, the most important - Knowledge. Then there's 10000 other different reason like "exercising" your mind, training your analytical skills, fun etc etc Reading daily overall etc reduces stress, improving focus, concentration and your memory.
2018-06-12 23:38
the energy in our body will rise and will always be a part of the elements. We are made up by the same atoms as the universe. The universe is us and we are the universe
2018-06-13 00:11
"No atheists" There is nothing after death, just nothingness, accept it. We are just some random organism in this big clusterfuck called universe.
2018-06-12 23:20
whats the point of living then
2018-06-12 23:23
you just proved that atheists are deluded LUL
2018-06-12 23:24
The point of living is to enjoy every single bit of it because you wont have another chance to do so after you die.
2018-06-12 23:25
but after u die u are equal with anything other unliving, a rock, a poo. its like nothing has ever happened so its pointless... ;( i wish it wasnt like that
2018-06-12 23:53
Yeah but some ppl say that you may also take it as a release, after all you wont feel anything, there will literally be nothing so its kind of a release for you.
2018-06-12 23:55
ye but you cant say it will be for "me". there wont be a "me" and this "me" will have never existed by that point
2018-06-12 23:57
True. I imagine death as sleeping without dreams. Its the same after all imo, when you sleep your brain isnt working and you dont feel anything. The same happens when you die, your brain stops working.
2018-06-12 23:58
so depressing. but after all this doesnt matter what im feeling rn because it will be irrelevant so i guess i can feel better but again why would i feel happiness if its useless? also the brain works while sleeping lol, its recovering
2018-06-13 00:01
It works but its kinda like turned off (when you have no dreams). You have no thoughts etc, time will just instantly skip to the next day when you wake up.
2018-06-13 00:03
do you feel like no time has passed after you wake up? i personally do and usually know how much time i slept
2018-06-13 00:03
When I sleep without waking up during the night then yeah. You dont remember how you fell asleep, because as soon as it happens your brain goes off. I consider sleeping as a really short period of time, for example if I go to sleep and think about that I will go to the gym tommorow morning I be like: I will go to the gym in a little bit. For me sleeping isnt long, its just falling asleep and then waking up instantly the next morning. I barely even dream.
2018-06-13 00:08
;O that sounds scary idk why
2018-06-13 00:08
I mean, I do feel rested but I consider sleeping as some kind of an instant skip to the next day. It was nice to have this kind of talk with you, im going to sleep rn as im really tired. In 15 minutes it will be morning for me :)
2018-06-13 00:10

The chance of everything being the way it is is non existant. The argument of design is imo the strongest one for god's existance. How about you try to counter any of these arguments btw, if you take pride in your atheism strangenotions.com/god-exists/
2018-06-13 00:12
Nobody said I take pride in my atheism. And the nothingness after death is the most logical assumption for me, because when you sleep with no dreams your brain is turned off, you have no thoughts, you feel nothing. And after you die your brain stops working, so I imagine death as sleeping without dreams. But I hope there is some kind of an afterlife, its not like I want this nothingness thing but it seems like the most realistic one, as we are just some random organism in this big universe. I also think that it is possible that all of this is a simulation.

If you take time to read everything i said, im sure you will change your beliefs as it seems like you're open minded and an intelligent person. It provoves intrigue and after this is done i guarantee you'll feel better on a spiritual level. Its a sense of security and warmness and harmony knowing the truth and how everything is connected. lets say there is god and our soul lives on a spiritual level ( conciousness ) if god is this all understanding being he wouldnt make it as obvious that our conciousness is independant from the brain. There would be no point in our living if we all knew we go afterlife anyway. Its like a test. Our conciousness is capped by the brain, when its let free look what happens ( near-death.com/science/evidence. ). Nde stories happen, people were reporting what was happening outside, what the doctors did during the operation etc WHILE BRAINDEAD, with their brains completely shut down, they were able to see, hear, and most importantly "know" ( near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a01 ) as the conciousness is free and it "expands" And the brain capping conciousness makes perfect sense for every counter argument from atheists. It is true that people are concious on a lesser level with brain injuries right, thats what was always used against the hypotheses of conciousness being independednt, but if brain was capping it, there would be no problem. There are a lot of stories of people's conciousness "expanding" after near death experiences ( near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a30 ) Some brought scientific discoveries after their NDE's. near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a46 near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a51 near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a34 near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a35 near-death.com/science/evidence.html#a19 There is no way you can still hold your values as an atheist after this burden of proof, unless youre extremely close minded and biased. quora.com/Is-it-true-that-people-with-hi..

im not close minded but i dont see this as "scientific" proof that there is an afterlife. there is no way to prove or disprove these theories. thats why we all talk about beliefs here. when u are close to dying your brain will release dmt and essentially give you halucinations which might be an explanation of these experiences. or might not. no one knows so no one is right or wrong. but then again thats just my opinion.

the major flaw in the argument of design is why the universe is so violent. in fact the only place where humans can live without the use of technology is earth. if i go out into space without a space suit i would die. yes the probability of earth existing in the first place is extremely low but given the vast size of the universe it had to happen eventually. you could ask the question for every atom in the universe and you will get even higher improbabilities... for instance why is every atom in the sun arranged the way they are. the chance of them being the way they are is even less likely than earth being the way it is.
2018-06-13 12:32
i dont fear death, i fear not acomplishing my goals in life or dying before doing so.
2018-06-12 23:24
I fear death but I legit think about suicide almost everyday
2018-06-12 23:28
i think about suicide every day too but our souls always seek for hope. i dont mind dying but i do have in my mind a bright future which most likely wont happen and i'll probably suffer for my rest of my life but yeah lol

I don't fear death at all, it'll eventually come to every single one of us. The only shame is how we die, either peacefully or brutally. Although in general it's just fear of the unknown, and besides no one knows what happens after death and we'll probably never will.

Look around, see some cool things, for example weather, people, interesting events. And now imagine that you are not there anymore, everything around you is still existing and happening, but without you being able to be a part of it or at least to perceive it. People that have nothing interesting happening around them don't care of course - they have nothing to lose, they don't live anyway.
2018-06-12 23:35
But what if some of my dreams are already not possible to achieve and the only way to think that you can achieve them is by suiciding thinking that in afterlife you can do whatever you want. It's not neccesarily delusional as any guess about afterlife could be true

I fear death because I'm expecting it to go along with flavor of most intense agony I've ever felt. Having my body getting destroyed to point where I die isn't going to be a pleasant experience.
2018-06-12 23:36
Yeah, like what if we're still conscious 6 feet underground and we are till our body completely rots. Some of these thoughts are scary tbh

The reason for the fear of death is quite simple, in my opinion. It depends on how much you have to lose if you die and your personality. But that's just my opinion. I might sound like a rotten human being for putting value into such things, but like I said, that's just my opinion.

Being scared of death is one of the weakest traits a person can have. We all die and thats nature. Nothing you do in life would make sense if it were endless. The fear of death follows from a fear of life, live it to the fullest and make it count.

There is no life after death - that's why it's terrifying.
2018-06-13 10:12
it's the fear of unknown. If I show you something that you can't understand (sort of failing to categorise what you saw), it would scare the hell out of you. Our instincts are built to survive, but there are other systems that are built on that. It's actually quite complex how our brain works (no one knows 100% yet). We humans are the only ones who do not purely act on instincts. Like if we want, we can end our life right in this moment. But the other animals cannot do that, Have you ever seen a cat committing a suicide?

an animal causing its own life to end doesn't mean it's a suicide. Suicide is a conscious action. Like do they know they are gonna die? What's the meaning of death to them? That's rather a philosophical question. However, we can't completely know whether their actions are suicidal or not. It's just my interpretation on that. Humans have distinct characteristics compared to animals, and conscious is one of them.

did you actually read the wikipedia page? the dog repeatedly held his head underwater to drown himself. imagine suiciding by drowning yourself. you know its bad because it FEELS bad. ofc we cant just ask him but his behavior showed that he is willing to harm himself.

I'd read it. These are all traumatic events and it could happen. In that example, the dog's instincts say it's better to stay under water. In the same article, says "One deer leapt from a cliff to its death so as to avoid being captured by hunting dogs." I rather throw myself from a cliff than being eaten by hunters, hoping that I'd "survive". Nothing about suicide, purely instinct there. Causing yourself to death is not a suicide, just think about it

You should never fear death. From the minute you understand what death is you know you are going to die someday. Don't do stupid things but you can't fight the reaper. He's coming for you someday. Does not matter how much money you make, what you do in life or anything. You are worm food in the end. For sure you won't be taking any memories with you. That's one thing love about death, everyone is equally dead in the end. George Soros will lose all his money :)

I dont fear death? It is never on My fucking mind lol. We are all atheists here.
2018-06-13 12:48
why would you fear death if you obviously believe in something like an afterlife?
2018-06-13 16:13
I think its the fear of the realization that what little we have accomplished in our lives.
