The euthanasia thread has got me thinking. I don't like the thought of dying. Try to think of any way out of it.... Which leads me to:
If eternal life was possible for everyone currently on earth - would a cost of no new babies (even for your own kids) be worth it?
(If everyone lived forever and new babies continued to be born earth couldn't sustain that for very long).

***spinoff*** death and eternal life
07-02-2016 20:56 #2
Absolutely not. I believe regeneration is essential for the continuation of the species and the health of the planet.

No. Plain and simple.

no. I don't believe anyone needs to live forever and it's important to keep the circle of life moving forward with new generations.
I do sometimes wonder if souls get "recycled" and people who've lived before but died come back for round two, three etc. but that's a bit of a tangent and not relevant to the OP's question really.

No. Definitely not.
I do not find death scary though.
Birth/new life is a new beginning. It is something magical - with new life we learn new things. It is a cleansing - I think death is part of it.
So no - I do not want eternal life here on earth.
It is hard to explain and I do hope that I make some form of sense.

No. Even if i could be guaranteed I could keep my health and youth I still wouldn't want to live forever. Life would just get dull and repetitive.
The only thing I fear about death is pain and leaving behind my kids if I was to die unexpectedly.

Nope I'm not scared of death anyway.

No. Death terrifies me but its part of life. It has to happen.
Eta- I try to take comfort in believing that although my body may not be on this earth physically, my loved ones will always carry me with them in their hearts and memories.

Nope, not at all. This is why I choose to believe in God and heaven, our souls can live eternally in another plane.
I probably sound like an air-head to all of the non-believers on BH. But my beliefs give me calm and peace that death isn't the end. I could be totally wrong (and my logical and scientific mind says I probably am) but I guess I won't know until I'm dead (or not know if there's no heaven....) haha, my mind is currently analysing my belief system.
