    I've been thinking about death lately

    and I'm terrified, If God isn't real then when we die we will just cease to exist. Take a moment to think about that, nothing. You will be nothing, just a blank nothing, will I be able to hear? See? I can't even grasp my brain around it, I'm just so confused to the point...

    Now call me a wimp but i'm really freaked out

    by the prospect of death, especially what happens to the body after death. I mean I just read about recently and a lot of it sounds like something out of an 1980's splatter film or a Creepypasta. I'm a sensitive sort of guy and while I normally enjoy blood and gore, I don't...

    If I Die...I hope the 'me'

    who is being taken to the higher plain will not be around to witness the messy process of what happens to your body after death. I'd much prefer to be cremated or have my remains made into plant matter so I can have a tree in my place.

    I'm not scared of the actual prospect of death,

    I'm scared of the fact that I don't know what comes after. The thing is, I have a thing for knowing everything going on around me, and I always do, but with death, it scares me that I can't know. Does anyone know but the dead? If it just ends, if your consciousness stays, I can...
