What about the people that suicides? I think they're not afraid of dying, not at least as much as other people do.

People who commit suicide are afraid of living. Living caused so much pain they can only hope dying will be better. They still wonder if dying will be the solution. They still wonder if in the end it will be "all good." They HAVE to wonder. Cause no one knows for SURE what exactally will happen.

Quick thought

Death is scary because
It comes with the thoughts of reality and unknown
Seemingly unreal things about life it self
It also comes with the total UNKNOWN of what is after life
Knowing becomes such a pivotal thing, concept of our lives
Not knowing means to rely on

Faith Belief

What do you believe?

Take comfort in what ever that is

Death is an unknown dimension. No sight, no smell, no feeling, no hearing, no taste, and scariest of all, no thoughts. Everything is completely over, complete nothingness. That is not a comforting thought.
Think about when your laying in your bed at night. The lights are off, everyone in the house is asleep. Its virtually silent. But your mind is still at work. You might be reflecting on the days past, or what you may be doing tomorrow, or thinking about a funny joke you heard that day, or how painful that hangnail is on your toe. After a few minutes, the thoughts tend to recede some, or you become not so conscious, and you might just see images, a big cocktail olive, an umbrella, things very random. Then, eventually, you drift off into unconsiousness, and your brain takes over...The point is, your mind is constantly at work, and the thought of nothingness, is something we cannot comprehend. Because whatever we choose to think of, as nothingness, is still something. I believe this is a main factor, if not one of the largest and most overlooked, in fear of death, belief in the after life, and stemming from the beliefs in afterlife, human morality. We can't comprehend death...can you blame anyone for being a little creeped out?

I fear death. I believe its stupid we don't put forth research in looking for potential immortality. Perhaps then maybe our political leaders will think for the future and actually care about what they do.

People tell me that's crazy, and that we are over populated, I say no were not. Were not utilizing our maximum potential. We haven't really genetically worked on our food system, or our selves. Not only that, but we have a lot of ocean and a moon to populate. If we are to survive as a species we need to spread out to other planets to avoid being wiped out by one little rock.

On top of that, look at how much there is to learn, how much to understand, the universe, each other, culture, how could you possibly be willing to allow yourself to die with out event wanting to learn everything?

i dont think people should be scared of death,
because nothiing will matter to you after you die.
i think people should turn their fear into excitment for the time they have left to live.

I can now say that I've been clinically dead for 5 minutes, and to tell the truth, I don't think I've ever felt more content and happy in my life. It's not like I want to be dead now or anything, it's just that I have no fear about death anymore.

I mainly blame religion and other hocus pocus nonsense for putting the image of hellfire, brimstone, and suffering into innocent young people who develop a fear of death- it's a very sad thing.

Then again, that might change for person to person depending on how one lives their life.

Quoted from PsyBlog:
Easier said than done maybe but Epicurus had a rational approach to death. He saw it as the end of sense experience, as a point of transition which should not concern us. While we are alive death is not important as it does not yet exist; in other words, we're still alive! Equally when we're dead, we can no longer experience anything so it's still not important (Epicurus didn't believe in life after death or the soul's immortality).
