Why would someone not fear nothing? Ok I am glad you asked that question. Think about it. It is nothing. You will not know it is nothing
because there is nothing. No more pains because there will be nothing. No more fears because there will be nothing. You will miss nothing because
there is nothing. What is to fear about that.
Your reading in to much to what I am saying and missing the point of what I said. The fact that death is the largest fear is what leads people to seek
out a means to sidestep death, be it through religion, fountain of youths, or technology.
Sounds like you just want to be immortal. You know searching for that fountain of youth which you so condemn. You do not want to die because
you do not really know what will happen. If its nothing then you have nothing to fear.
I don't personally want to live forever either in this world or another after death. I myself am not afraid of death, but simply pointing out that
due to the majority of the world does indeed practice some form of belief of an afterlife as a way to sidestep the eventual reality of death.
But if it is something what will it be? Which religion is correct? So many choices.
Indeed, so many choices today and possibly a thousand times that many different ideas since the dawn of our species. Yet not all of them can be

Well if there is nothing then nothing will matter because well when its over its over.
Exactly why people would fear death. It would be an ultimate end. No more family, no more friends, no more anything that we have known in life. Just,
nothingness no perception of being you any more. A complete total utter death of yourself with no continuation. Why wouldn't someone fear that,
especially if they don't understand life and death.
But if there is something, and no matter which one, well then Morality and ethics come into play.
That is another false statement. Morality and ethics has nothing to do with religion or an afterlife at all. This demands that people are incapable of
being moral without belief in your God, which is just wrong. I don't believe in any God(s) and yet I lead a more moral life than some Christians I
