I'm sorry, but I found this statement rather humorous.
Please do not get offended, or take it the wrong way, I'm sure that you didn't mean it that way.
However, most people ARE afraid of dying or do not want to. Your body is even made to try and help protect you from becoming injured in many ways that
you have reflexes. Adrenaline suddenly pumping through your body so you can either "Fight" or "Flee" is a good example of that.
Part of it too is because they don't want to leave or be gone. Some that have accepted it, especially those with a terminal illness may not be afraid
anymore, but they don't like to see the distress that it puts on their loved ones or friends that care for them.
People normally are afraid of destruction too. Let's face it: if you own a nice house that you like to live in, do you really want to see it
destroyed? It's a natural feeling to not want to see things destroyed.
Unless of course you like seeing things go "Boom" and I'll admit I enjoy my fair share of Mythbusters and watching them blow things up.
But then again, I really hate that movie makers seem to enjoy blowing up or destroying the Chrysler Building every time. They seem to like doing that!
