All we read is we will be resurrected on 'the' day.
every living thing fears death, it's a natural process... watch many nature shows ? those gazelle never read the bible least I don't think. And what about other spiritual books out there ? I guess they are all the Bible too...

What does that say about the bible? or yourself for that matter?
the Bible is a very special book, it looks at life and death and actions and result, it speaks across time to those who have an ear, one has to wonder where it came from and why it was written. That is a big mystery of the bible... it has archeological accuracy and in fact the bible is where archeology comes from, the first archeologist where searching for biblical sites. If you ever even tried to read the Quran now there is something you would be denouncing even as an atheist. It makes pretty much no sense, the arrangement is from shortest to longest verse and it is hard to be feeling it like reading a good novel.
We are all going to "die" so best adjust to that idea.
