Question

Are you afraid of dying?


I thought this would turn out to be an interesting poll.
Are you afraid of dying? Assume this is not a slow and painful death, just going in your sleep like the queen's mother did. If so, is it because:
Don't know what happens when you die?
Afraid of the afterlife?
Afraid of no afterlife?
You leaving your family and loved ones behind?
Die Young?

Feel free to openly discuss, I'm curious of what the public thinks. I personally am not afriad of dying. I am afraid of what it would do to my family being young, but dying itself is fine with me .

Not afraid, but I would regret all the things I haven't done yet. Not so much because I haven't done them, but because I don't think anyone else is likely to... I've been freakishly lucky to get where I am now and it would be an incredible waste if I were to die without exercising some of my talent.

Not afraid of dying, just afraid that I won't die in time.

Not afraid of dying because I believe I know what death brings, but I enjoy life and want to stay awhile!
My greatest concern would be the effect upon my family, wife, daughters, grandchildren and mum (maybe that's a good sign, she's 90 this year!).

I'm not afraid of dying at all, I'm a Christian so I believe in being somewhere awesome in the presence of God when I die--will be better that life on earth IMO I'm afraid for family and friends that don't have that same guarantee though.

well, i am afraid of dying, because if i will die, who is going to manage my servers and my business !. my techs don't know all stuff !.

heheheh j/k.

my saying, i am not afriad of dying will be wrong, because i do get scarred from death, specially i don't want to die without any reason, like 1000's of innocent people died in SEP 11 attack or like 1000's of enocent people dying in my country (india) killed by terrorist for there personal motives or like people are being killed in Israel. i don't want to die in accident or due to some long lasting painfull diseases.

i want very calm death, like i closed my eyes and i am dead without any pain or what so ever.

well, if i ever die, i don't want to go to heaven or hell, i want to remain on earth in the form of good ghost, but with the ability to run computers and write computer programs.

well, these are my personal feelings and i am sure about them how my death should be.

not offending anyone but those of you who claim you are not afraid of dying, go ahead and run your car wildly or do something stupid or very dangerous which involve serious life risks, like some jugglers who risk there lifes or like stuntman who risk his life or save you ass and don't make false claims.

edit: typos

A statement that closely resembles my views. Very well put

just because i dont fear death doesnt mean that i should go flaunt it, why should i risk it, i dont fear death because my life is good, ive done a lot, if i died now i wouldnt worry about not having done stuff, theres still stuff to do but he statue quo if above average. i do take risks now and again but not stupid ones. i still have responsibilities and duties. if i go i want my life insurance to pay out.
its not a false claim to say im not afriad of death, ive never been afraid of the unknown, im not afraid of what tomorrow brings , be it a lottery win or death as that would be letting it affect today, and then life would be no fun. deal with the cards you have dont worry about the future, its fate. sure you can shape some of it. but who knows just dont bother letting it affect you.
