My story is not a particulary interesting one. I was born and raised in a christian family. Then I realized how amazingly cool it is to be a skeptic and to discover wonders of the Universe through…Continue

"I'm 65 and not very fit. On more than one occasion I've felt faint, or had a pain in my chest, or noticed my heart beating erratically, and each time I've thought, "I wonder if this is the one that kills me." So how do I…"

"I'm sure that you will get a lot of deep, thoughtful, almost heroic answers to this question. This won't be one of those. I'm afraid to die. Not a crippling, "I'm never leaving the house" kind of fear, but fear…"

"As others have said, your English is very good :) I think you're right that atheists in general probably view suicide differently than religious folks. I'd bet good money that if you took a poll you would find that atheists are more in…"

Natalia Z replied to Gary Burk's discussion Can we choose what we believe in?
"I don't think that we have any control over what we believe, but at the same time I don't think we have much control over what we think or do. It's the physical laws of brain electicity and chemistry that make us think what we think…"

"Ooh, philosophy. My least favorite exercise that I always find myself wanting to partake in. Let me take as given that death is like sleeping. Just as when I fall asleep, when I die I go knowing that my biology and the laws of nature dictate that…"

"i am.... selfish, that's the reason i want to live. i figured that we have no significant amount of time when our bodies function and the electrical impulses in our brain are functioning, so i want to make the most of it. sure it's all…"

"I don't understand peoples' obsession with living forever, as so few people seem to take advantage of the life they do have. Do they really want to spend an eternity eating fast food, watching TV, and being stuck in a dead-end job?"

"I was very pleased to read your reply, you're actually the first person who didn't start by disapproving me for what I had written. So many people say that there's no point in thinking of death. I first came across comparing death to…"

Timothy Grahek replied to Natalia Z's discussion What is death for an atheist?
"I would say you could probably pose as someone who learned English as their first language, as your English is completely understandable and mostly error free. I wrote an email to someone a while back that addressed this question, so I'll…"

"Hi Natalia, I'm a newbie to this site but not atheism. My husband and I began studying about religion about a year ago and have come to the same conclusion that there is no god. It's been wonderfully liberating! My husband's family…"

Lisa replied to Natalia Z's discussion What is death for an atheist?
"Over thinking it. Its a part of nature, all things die. I think the 'why not commit suicide' question is crazy. Why would someone even ask such a question, especially of someone who feels like suicide is the end? I don't think the…"

Earther replied to Natalia Z's discussion What is death for an atheist?
"I would not call survival irrational. Most people do not want to die because they are happy about life. They are most likely afraid, confused, and sad. Trying to help a person work through issues of fear, confusion or sadness be it counseling or…"
