  1. Hi,
    Just found and love your blog!!!

    Another point – People do not miss or lament the time before they were born. That time exists in a blackness of non-existence when we were no more than potential. . . When we die – as far as I’m concerned – we return to that non-existence. It wasn’t scary before, shouldn’t be scary after. Hell, on the other hand, is.

    • Dear Mr. Clayton,

      To whom do you refer exactly? Do you mean I am dumb or one of my readers is dumb? Please be a little more specific (and gramatically correct) so that I can at least respond.


  2. This answer is amazing. I never really knew what I would tell my kids (when I have them) but that is a great way to say it, thank you. :D

  3. I really appreciate your answer to this question. I’ve never heard the atheist perspective presented in this way. There’s something almost poetic about it. And, as someone who is not an atheist, I can even find common ground with you in your answer.

    Personally, I believe that a common longing among human beings is to live forever. That longing may be the expression of the divine in us, or it might be the result of evolution. Regardless of one’s perspective, you address that longing in your answer. Maybe it’s not as a spiritual being, but in some way, all people “continue to live forever.” Thanks for sharing this.
