ANSWERS: 100
  • The act of dying. I don't want to lay in pain waiting. Or suffer for years watching my body slowly die. Besides, I already know where I am going. :)
  • I dont know if its fear, but it would be what happens as you are dying- what it will feel like. Beyond that, its unknown so I dont think too much about it. I just heard what dying of thirst and what dying of hunger is like- Ghastly, HORRIBLE ways to die!
  • Frankly, I was never that scared of death, I don't believe in an afterlife, so I'm not afraid of what comes after. And I think the act of dying might make for an interesting experience, rather than a scary one.
  • Neither I am not afraid of death or the afterlife.
  • I am not afraid of the idea of what may come after death. I believe in God and heaven and I believe that is where I am headed (at least I try to live my life so that heaven is where I will end up). I would be more afraid of dying because you know that you are leaving behind everyone you love. That and if it was something painful that you died from like a heart attack or cancer.
  • All i can say is get it over with if its gonna happen.if i was sick and all that and had to wait,forget that crap.lol
  • No, because you can't avoid it. Being afraid of death will only limit your life.
  • No not at all or I would not do the crazy sports I do. I know that those I love are waiting for me, so why would I be afraid.
  • When you are dead, you are not aware of what is going on so I would have to say, no, not scared of death.
  • Yes and no. Yes because I'm afraid of what will happen after I do. My number one fear is going to hell, that's why I'm afraid to die. No because everyone has to die, there's no getting around that. I would like to die in my sleep when I'm old, so I don't know its happening, I can't feel anything, if there is anything to feel when you die.
  • No, not at all. I have a promise waiting for me.
  • No, in fact i grow impatient for its lateness.
  • Sometimes I am, because coming from a christian stand point, I want to make sure my relationship with Christ is up to par.
  • Not really, Just anxious with whats beyond it. I'd say I'm afraid of a painful death.
  • Yes. I'm really not sure why.
  • No not at all, only of injury and the resultant inactivity. Death is nothing of which to be afraid.
  • As Woody Allen said: I'm not scared of dying. I just don't want to be there when it happens. I think, if we are honest, we all are, because it is an unknown. As a Christian, it is not what happens afterwards that is the fear as much as what happens beforehand. I don't want to die over six years like my mum did. I think I prefer my father's quick death. It's the pain and the waiting that muck me up more that the moment itself. I know as I spoke to my mum shortly before she went into coma, she said "I'm afraid." I told her it was normal, but just hold on to the knowledge that Jesus is waiting on the other side. I hope that someone is holding my hand as it happens, and tells me the same thing.
  • Nope because there is no hell in the way that the Catholic church started to try and scare people into their religion.
  • Nope..I like it hot LOL
  • im not afraid of going to hell because it doesnt exist, but i have to say, i like everyone else fear death. ive noticed your screen name. sorry, but please dont try to save my soul.
  • No, I am not afraid of going to hell, because I believe that hell is just something created by men to scare people in order to keep them behaving decently. The fear of death is too strong. Just add a bad place to go once you die, and the fear of hell is added to the scenario. The devil is the bogeyman for adults.
  • Nope, because I don't believe in heaven, god, or hell.
  • I am afraid to die. I dont believe in an after life because eternal life would be impossible but thats a completely other subject. The part of death i fear most is just the fact that I have no control over it, when its going to happen, how its going to happen...and it can't be stopped...you cant run from it.
  • As long as it's not painful or slow, my only fear of death is leaving those I love behind to survive without me - like my daughters.
  • Yes. I am afraid. I am more scared of what happens afterwards and what will happen to my children and family when I'm gone.
  • I'm actually kind of excited about the prospect of what happens to me after I die. I may have no consciousness but the idea interests me anyway. so i'm definetely more afraid of the act of dying. i hope it's not incredibly painful.
  • I'm much more afraid of the act of dying and probable pain involved than what happens afterwards.
  • I am not afraid of dying myself. What scares me more is people close to me dying.
  • I'm not really afraid of dying. I am however afraid of dying by some violent method. I'm not afraid of what may come afterward. I think I have lived well enough that if there is an after-life, it will be a happy one, and if there is none, then there is simply nothing and therefore, nothing to be afraid of.
  • I am afraid of how I may die. The simple fact of possibly just no longer exsisting is rather creepy.
  • Neither. I'm afraid of no longer living. Actually, I don't think "afraid" is the right word- it's just that it's an undesirable event. I know what would happen if I tough the heating elements on the oven's range top, so I avoid doing it. I don't want to get burnt, I don't want to ever touch them, and if I can I'll postpone touching them as much as possible; that does not mean I'm afraid of the oven.
  • I'm afraid of simply not being. It's impossible for me to comprehend what not being is like when compared to being.
  • I already know how I am most likely going to die. I just dont know when. I have emphysema. I guess I could die in a car wreck or be shot by a robber or something like that, but most likely will be from emphysema. Now, I know alot of people will think I am crazy, but I dont really care, but I am promised eternal life in Heaven. Now I dont really care to argue that point, but I will if backed into a corner. That is just my belief, no one else has to believe it. So I am not worried about what happens after death. I just want to see Jesus and my wife, Kim.
  • I have thought about this quite a lot lately. I came to the conclusion that of course I'm afraid, but that is natural. Death is inevitable. It happens to EVERYONE. My Grandparents passed when I was young. I miss them, and I remember feeling that I would never see them again. But in reality, one of two things will happen. After I die, I will either see them again, or I won't know the difference. No one knows for sure. I think the reason no one knows what happens, is because if it was proven that there was a place that we go after we die, a lot of people would give up on life and want to end it, just to get to that other place. I believe that we are here for a reason. I however do not know exactly what that reason is, but from my experience, I think it has something to do with learning compassion, and gaining the ability to truly recognize that we are all connected.
  • I fear a painful death. Not death itself though. I don't want to die slowly, that's one of my worst fears actually.
  • I am afraid that all my loved ones will not be there to meet me. The act of dying is not something of which I am afraid.
  • For me, it's more the fear of what comes next...
  • YES, I hate the thought of death, it just irks me everytime I think about it. I just got the chills.
  • No...Never worry about that...
  • No. I choose to think about the idea of living my life and doing so in a better way.
  • If it did then I would be in the wrong field!...lol
  • Nope, having been exposed to as much death as i have has given me a rather laid back additude about it.
  • No it doesn't. Bring it on!
  • Actually I could do with the rest.
  • No and no.
  • Yes and Yes. Gotta be something out there.
  • im not afraid of dying but im afraid of the problems that ill leave behind unresolved. i dont remember exactly where its in the bible but i believe it says, that when you die you have no thoughts so there cant be life after death. i dont believe in God as defined by the bible but contradictively i would say the bible makes alot of sense at times.
  • What was it Woody Allen said? "I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to be there when it happens." LOLOL SOmetimes I am afraid, I have to admit. But I trust in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, that He will be waiting for me when I get through.
  • I don't really believe in life after death, but I'm not afraid to die.
  • Yes I'm afraid of dying, and hopefully there's life after death.
  • I dont know, Im almost neutral on the matter. I dont want to die... I would like to live a long meaningful life with my loved ones. If my times up then so be it. I have no clue whats after death, but thats why Im not scared or happy. Why worry about it?
  • I am not afraid of dying but more of the way I am going to die, God I hope its quick. Yes I do believe in life after death but if I am wrong it won't matter because I will be dead and won't know any better, ;)
  • No and Yes. What I am afraid of is whether or not my wife can manage without me. She's very dependent.
  • I beleive there is life after death. I believe that we come here to learn "lessons" and we keep coming back to perfect our soul until we become one with God. That is how I explain people who appear to have "advanced" souls - they have much bigger challenges than the rest of us as they are more able to handle them. That is why some people keep going through the same thing over and over and over - they haven't learned that lesson and the lesson will repeat until they do. I could go on for days on this topic but I'll stop here. :)
  • No I am not afraid and yes I must it is the only way I can survive thinking that I will meet my loved ones again.
  • 1) No. 2) I'll believe it if I see it. :-)
  • I used to be afraid of dying, but not since i lost my parents as i know they will be waiting for me when i get to the other side.. i have to believe that or i would go out of my mind!! I actually believe that this is hell we are living in and when we die, we can only go upwards, which is heaven.
  • Nope, not afraid to die. It will lead to a state of being pain free! Life after death?? Not sure, but I am holding onto the hope that heaven does exist. In the worst case senerio, it doesn't and since I will be dead, I won't know the difference!!
  • yes and no. yes, for the very reason that i dont want to leave my loved ones. and no, coz i know, someday i will meet them somewhere and God have better plans for my soul.
  • hell no
  • If I thought that's where I am going, I would be.
  • Not really. I'll have all my friends there to keep me company;)
  • In my culture, hell is the collapse of the spirit, to the point that it ceases to exist. Hell can as well be any great hardship one experiences.
  • I was there once and pulled out. Hell is a never ending torment in this world, generations after generations living in fear of death. Hell is placing all hope in things seen and not the things unseen. The things seen wear out and come to nothing. Christ in you, the hope of glory. The unseen hope. No, I'm not afraid anymore.
  • No, because i don't believe in hell.
  • Nope, because even though I believe in hell, I definately won't be going there. I will be in heaven (because I speak it into my heart :-). If anything this life on earth is hell so I can't wait to meet my maker.
  • Good question. See sometimes it does scare me alot but thats just because of the unkknown sometimes i wanna beilve theres something after but other times i dont. its just something that everyone of us wil go through so i spose theres not much point being too scared of it.
  • The idea that my daughter (3 years old) be without father. She loves me too much. I don't want to die before she is 18.
  • Im not afraid to die, but I am afraid of what might or might not come after. No one ever comes back to tell, do they?
  • Pagan religions are noted for teaching red-hot hells. The ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Phoenicians, Persians, Grecians and Hindus taught flaming hells. Hundreds of years after Jesus and the death of his apostles, the teaching of a burning hell (among other doctrines) was adopted by the church from much older pagan religions. Mainly to make it easier for pagan believers to accept "Christianity" and also to scare obedience into it's followers. But the bible does not support the idea of any kind of suffering after death. Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10 - “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all . . . All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol,* the place to which you are going.” (If they are conscious of nothing, they obviously feel no pain.) (O yeah, the word Sheol is the Hebrew word for Hell, Hades is the Greek word) Ps. 146:4 - “His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.” The bible is clear about the condition of the dead, hell is simply the common grave of mankind. The bible even tells us that Jesus was in hell before he was resurrected. Consider: Acts 2:25-27 - “David speaketh concerning him [Jesus Christ], . . . Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell,* neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” --The fact that God did not “leave” Jesus in hell implies that Jesus was in hell, or Hades, at least for a time, does it not?-- Would it make any sense that God would have sent his beloved son to Hell if it was a place of suffering and torture?
  • Not at all.
  • No I'm not afraid of death. I will not be going to hell as I don't believe in it. Hell, hades, Sheol are all just somewhere we're buried. It's the common grave. I'm not afraid to be buried.
  • i'm not afraid of dying because i've done it before and i'm not afraid of going to hell because i don't believe in an afterlife.
  • dying as i'm told is a natural thing, hell is highly unnatural, it hasn't been proven by the 'BBC' as i'm aware of. which brings a whole new superstitious element to whether one goes to hell when dead, as stevie wonder sings in one of his songs 'if you believe in things you don't understand then you suffer'. which for me is a good way to start to eliminate any possibility of being afraid of dying, which in turn WILL help me to live my life on earth as best i can. life on earth is what its all about for me - i am more afraid of not helping out/knowing how to help out, other's on this earth than i am of going to hell.
  • I will be honest, I am scared to die. As far as going to hell, I'm not sure I believe in it. I'm a good person, for the mostpart, but I've definitely done my share of things that probably landed me a one way ticket to the Devils livingroom. If I do go, I better start working on that Jakoozing in my condo however!
  • No I'm afraid of dying and coming back as a Third World African baby
  • i am afraid of dying and missing my chance to get another body in time!
  • YES!!!!!!!! My neighbor who got stricken with Cancer died.. he came back from the dead, as many people do. I believe God was giving him a second chance. He said in Hell there were creatures trying to eat him. I don't know about you, but I would rather be up in Heaven with my loved ones than in that terrible place called HELL. My neighbor did pass away, but since returning from the dead, I'm pretty darn sure he went to God the minute he came back.
  • why bother being afraid?
  • Not of going to hell, no. Afraid of dying, that's for sure. I don't want to. I'd like to just stay here thanks! Maybe when I'm older or I've done more things I'll be a bit more at peace with it.
  • No Because I know Batman... he is better than satan. He is the Shit.
  • dying yes. going to hell, i'm not sure. i don't think i'll be going there - at least i certainly hope not, but i follow my religion as best i can, and do my best to live a general moral good life. but until judgement day i guess hell is something that nobody knows of yet.
  • Afraid of Dying? No (everyone will die, I have accepted it) Going to Hell? Yes (No need to explain, hell is a bad place of eternal suffering)
  • Of dying..a little, but I think it's only because I have never experienced it and do not really know what to expect (except for the obvious outcome, of course) in the way of what my body will experience. Going to hell..it is my opinion that hell is complete separation from God...eternity spent where there is nothing good, only evil.
  • I'm only afraid of How I'm going to die not dying.. and yeah for sure I'm afraid of going to hell but praying to God and asking for his forgiveness to let me and my beloved ones far away from it, I'm not afraid of hell because I'm a muslim.
  • The fear of what is coming next.. leaving loved ones, the fear of loosing loved ones, I think about it all the time , the older I get the more closer I feel I am getting so I am starting to feel more scared.. I dont know the unknown waiting.. some one answer these questions for me.. I am so scared it bothers me daily
  • It's the not being alive anymore part I'm not fond of. I like being alive.
  • I am not afraid of death or what comes after. I am saved by the blood of Jesus and know that I will spend Etenity with Him in Heaven.
  • Neither, really. Just another adventure.
  • the idea of what may NOT come after death - nothingness would be so sad
  • I don't care what's gonna happen with me whatsoever. The only thing that scares me is to say good bye to my loved ones. That I will never see them again, protect them and/or take care of them... This thought bothers me the most.
  • Use to be afraid of death until I went to war. When death breathes down your neck, you get use to it. Now that I am here in the civilian world, death means death to me and nothing more.
  • No, I don't want to die tomorrow but I am curious as to what is on the other side.
  • No and yes. Death is the one thing scientists and all the engineers in the world will never be able to figure out. However, I know where I'm going. At the same time, how am I going to die? I just saw The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and I'm freaked out.
  • I sure am. It's the not knowing that scares me.
  • yes I hate thinking that I could be here today and maybe gone tomorrow.
  • I'm not afraid of dying, I just don't want to be there when it happens. lol, I dunno. Yes because I want to know what it is like, and no because, well, I want to live!
  • I used to be. But realised after I did die there wasn't anything to worry about.
  • no, It's weird because when I was a Christian I was scared to die but now as an atheist, I am not. I think in christianity, they had me so scared that every little thing I did wrong was going to send me to Hell so i lived in constant fear of death. Now, i am so much at peace. I am scared for the one person who does love me that I will leave behind or vice versa..I don't want to live without him..but I am not afraid of death
