What is death?

Why do people die?

Death is the cessation of existence of a living organism, the stop of his life.

The world is designed so that everything in it is going through the stage:

- appearance (birth),
- growth and development,
- heyday (maturity),
- extinction (aging),
- death.

This applies both to the processes and objects of inanimate nature (small and large, for example. stars and galaxies), and to living organisms and social organizations, for example, States and civilizations. Nothing in the physical world does not exist forever.

Man as a living being is no exception to the laws of the universe. We all are born, grow, grow, grow old and eventually die.

Death is not the opposite of life. Death is at the end. If we talk about the antithesis of the concept of death, they will, rather, the idea was born.

For the unbelievers, death is the end of human existence, moving in complete nothingness, nothing. And life is only a fleeting flash of eternity: we come into this world out of nowhere and go to nowhere. What is the meaning of our birth and of our existence, an unbeliever is unlikely to explain. Death from the point of view of science is a mechanism that protects against the overpopulation of the planet, provides the change of generations, each of which moves forward in its development, and all the old giving way to a new, staying in the past.

From the point of view of religious teachings, death is not the end of the human person. All religions of the world claim that the man still has something eternal, indestructible. Is the human soul. The physical body is but its shell. Each person comes into this world to fulfill their purpose, which is to each his own. And then goes back to the Creator. Death is only a transition from earthly existence to the other life, the moment of birth in this other life. The soul does not terminate its existence after death - the destruction of the body, and continues its already out of the body. All religions have beliefs about the afterlife, that is about what happens to a person after death. These views differ quite significantly, but the religions are unanimous in the belief that death is not the end, it is the end of earthly life.

"Death is the door to eternal life." (Leo Tolstoy).

Again, that article the author uses unchecked arguments that can and are perceived by readers as facts. Since the information transmitted to children is unacceptable to stuff their false judgments, because this will affect the formation of their identity as now and in the future. Please, people, do not take everything at face value, do not be lagravere, check the information in reputable scientific sources. Better baby say you don't know something and to explore the issue together(at the same time and show by their example, how to look for and how important it is to constantly ask questions, to get to the bottom, and not to believe everything "accepted"). Blatant and widespread misconception, for example, javljaetsja what many believe as if it all happened by evolution, losing sight of the important fact that the THEORY of evolution because to this day is called the theory that despite all the progress of mankind, is still not proven, and even largely refuted. Even though we live in the 21st century we do not know more than we know, so let us be modest and let's not come up with answers to what do not know, and if you come up with, then put into the category of literary genre...

Probably, soon (in 100 years) science comes to what we will be immortal. Thus people most likely will colonize the universe (and not just the people), and then possibly other universes(there are now a lot of interesting observations, which gives reason to think that our universe is not alone, and the number of such studies and observations gradually increasing). Therefore, I do not want to die, want something to explore, to learn something new. I think that we should actively promote the science forward. Only then all people will be better. I think that if you live without worries and research, this eternal life is not interesting and necessary. And anyway, we live in a really small spot (on the Ground), which is a huge galaxy, which, in turn, is a really little point in the whole universe. They say that the stars in the Universe than there are grains of sand on all the Earth. As the Earth revolves around only 1 star. Therefore, the space in the Universe will be enough for everyone, even if everyone will live forever. Especially, if it is confirmed the theory of the multiverse (the hyperspace in which countless Universes).

In my opinion, after the death of the person, and any other creature that can't just be nothing! Because it is impossible. I guess that after death the soul goes to Heaven or Hell or moved into another creature.

In the Bible all just written. because of Adam and eve because of their sin, all the people began to die, but it should not be so. And God promises to fix it. So read the Bible, it says everything. And about the death there is a saying that with the death of a person, as if asleep. So there is nothing to fear ))

Fear of death is only the consciousness of the unresolved contradictions of life. Life does not end after the destruction of the physical body. Carnal demise is just another change in our existence, which always was, is and will be. There is no death!
