You must be like a robot or mechanical or something because death is the hardest part about life.
Oh no, there are people who are far more mechanical about it than me. I think the way I feel about it is pretty healthy. The only part that I think sucks is if I were young (30s or below) and knew I was going to die. Then it would be sad because I wouldn't be getting to live my full life. But once death happens, what can you do? Nothing.
But as far as what a good number of people get, 70-80 years? That's plenty if you live your life to the fullest, don't take things too seriously, and live to make YOURSELF (not some authority figure) happy. Sure it may be nice if we could amp it up to a few hundred years of life expectancy, but forever
? No thanks. (Btw, when your brain and body are destroyed, the matter recycles itself back into the universe, so in that sense, we are all "immortal").
What if your husband got in a bad accident and died and that was it, you never see him again? You cannot communicate with him because there are no souls. That's just it, dead, gone, forever.
Hmm, that is pretty awful of you to say, but anyway, of course I would be devastated
. I would be devastated for exactly the reasons one SHOULD be devastated: he's gone for freaking ever! Which is exactly why we should all cherish those who are important to us.
I always wondered how I'd react when someone important in my life died because it hadn't really happened, and when my dad did a few years ago, I wept BECAUSE they turned his memorial service into this fake, god-filled event of "oh, he's in heaven now". No, he freaking killed himself, so he's not in heaven even by your Christian standards. Sorry, TMI?
You mean to tell me you could just go on about your day like that's life and things happen and you are unaffected - like O'Well - people die.
Not at first! I'm sure I'd be quite depressed for a good year or two. But eventually I'd have to move on if I want to continue living. And that's the healthy thing to do.
That's why people say they would be depressed if there was no God because of the above stuff I just mentioned.
And I don't get why people would be depressed without god. There are SO many good things in life that make it worth living...love, pizza, kittens, puppies, roller coasters, ice cream, games, good conversation, travel, movies, TV shows, hobbies, comedy, music, sports, art...to infinity and beyond!
