Nowadays, I fear death. It's instinctual and instills the value of self-preservation. I don't fear what will happen after death, nor do I fear what will happen to others after death... even to theists, 'cuz there's no atheist version of Hell. I still hate to think of all the people that die every second, though. Poor guys.

Lose that fear, brother.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Someone once said that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. He was right.

But it makes more room on the planet for the new guys.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?
