Actually, I can, because it is not scary at all.

Not existing is how everyone ends up. It's not a problem needing solving, so far as I'm concerned. A longer healthspan would of course be a nice option to have; more options are generally better than fewer. But I do not seek immortality and have come to terms with my mortality.

To be honest, I have only made peace with mortality, because I don't know how to avoid it. 800 years of great health, maybe another 300 of moderate health would be a nice lifespan.

I hate to butt in on REFan, but I can only say that you apparently find the idea of non-existence scary; not everyone is wired the same. Personally, I actually find the thought of oblivion pretty comforting.

Just because you're afraid of something you cannot magically poof it out of existence. Or out of non-existence, as 'twere Drinking Beverage

RE: Gnostic Atheism
You know, morondog, we often go straight for the "he's a troll" explanation. Sadly, in most cases I really don't think they are. Sadly, because it means there actually are this many people this stupid in the world...

Or maybe I'm giving them less credit than they deserve? Consider

You could be right. I'm pretty confident in my diagnosis though Smile
