RE: Your (our) final moments as an atheist
When my life passes in front of my eyes, it will be fun - I made sure it would be interesting.

Your fear of death diminishes more and more the older you get. Live long enough, and the idea of going to sleep for good will be your friend. It's those selfish relatives who keep pushing you to hang on against all nature that are the obstacle for a peaceful, welcome death.

Will you be scared? Like oh shit I am just going to flipping disappear and in moments it's lights out for ever and that's it the end ....

I find it difficult getting around that part. Just thinking about that moment before our consciousness disappears. Llike just gone forever. It's kind of amazing in a way just to think on it but kind of scary.

What do you guys think?

I'm just hoping I live long enough to see all the things I want to see before I cash in my chips. No point in worrying about being gone, I will just be gone and that's it.

Revelation provides no knowledge - it's just your imagination.

No knowledge is also knowledge. Tongue

When you think you think, you only think you think, because thinking of thoughts is thoughtless thinking.

Haha, this is a saying I picked up in Germany as a kid. I was fascinated by it...Tongue

I think it was the BeardedClam who went through the trauma of deathwatch where dude kept saying "Let's get this show on the road." I like that. Of course I plan to chase it with a search for the LD50 of Hofmann's problem child. Yes

I was thinking I might think about thinking on this a bit when I'm done thinking some other thoughts. Tongue

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

RE: Your (our) final moments as an atheist
Well I would be scared if I died in some tragic way, but if I live a long life and pass away peacefully then I don't find that frightening. I will probably be unaware that I am dying, anyway.

What I am afraid of is those I love dying, because I will have to continue on without them. Sometimes I worry about my dog dying because he gives me a lot of emotional support.

I think that I would be more afraid of death if I were religious. >.<

I'd definitely be more worried if I was a theist (like you), uncertain if I'd picked the right god or denomination, always afraid of being sentenced to eternal torment for that honest mistake.

And when you realize nothing's there, the harsh reality that you wasted your one life living it for a magical being.

ST,

I have no memory of my big motorcycle accident - nothing. I can remember before it, getting on the bike, and then zilch. This is comforting, and if death is like that I have no worries at all. OTOH if I slip away and then find myself in some sort of celestial post mortem interview, then that thought is not so comforting. Gasp
