Fear of Death

I was raised atheist. I had no trouble with fear of death. I don’t like growing old. I don’t like not having time to accomplish everything I planned. The thought of Christians forcefully keeping me barely alive for years with tubes up my nose is horrifying, but being dead is not in the least scary. The only thing fearful about death for some people is the threat of a vindictive cruel god waiting for them to punish them for masturbating or breaking one of his other idiotic rules. I have already been dead, both before I was born and on the operating table. Nothing happened, not even a sense of the passage of time. The only things it makes sense to fear must happen when you are alive.

Fictional Birth Places

Superman was raised on Krypton and Jesus in Nazareth. It turns out both were fictional places. Archaeologists discovered there was no town of Nazareth, much less a synagogue, in the time of Jesus.
