Through the power of self-delusion, of course.

Being a Christian and believing in a life after death gives me a positiv attitude towards death. Even if there is nothing after life I have the benefit that I live and die my life in a state of hope.

I believed in God since I was 1 years old. Never worried about it ever since.

Thanks to denial, I'm immortal.

Denial. Lol,  I get it. Like "the Nile", as in the longest river in the world. Your fucking hilarious Vivster,  I laughed loud at that one. Keep it up.

I don't care. I won't know if I'm dead, and won't even know the moment it happens.

Also, and this will sound more pessimistic than it is because this is in some ways a comforting thought, but humans as a whole are too arrogant. In reality mine and anyone's time here compared to the life of the Earth and the universe is less meaningful than a single grain of sand on an endless beach. I can have no impact whatsoever. The entire human species can have no impact whatsoever. Our very existence from the moment Homo Erectus first stood up a couple hundred thousand years ago to the moment Homo Sapiens Sapiens destroys itself is just a blink of an eye, and nobody has any control over it. So what does it matter? All you can do is enjoy yourself a little.

I take note of how if someone or some kind of alien in our or another universe invents time travel we could end up being enslaved forever with our heads in a glass jar working forever. :/

I'm grand, it's the fact that I know I'll be attending the funerals of my parents and probably older brother that always get to me.

Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at

I used to be extremely afraid of death.

And then I just started thinking "I'll think about death when I die" And now I just don't think about it.


Maybe I will find out what's going on when I am dead.. or not. The cycle repeats. This life starts all over from the beginning and I just do what I do. With my memories being erased, it's like the first try all over again. Sounds depressing....

Why people fear death is puzzling to say the least.Death is as natural as breathing.Everyone is here for a time,so make the most of it or not.It's best to don't spend your whole life worrying about something that comes to all.
