It's always puzzled me why so many Christians fear death, when they claim to know they are going to a place vastly superior to this one.
That's because they can only delude themselves to a certain extent. Deep down they know that when they die that's it. Nothing. But they try and believe that's not true. So, of course, because they spend their whole lives desperately clutching a delusion, they never come to terms with oblivion. All but the most gullible ones live their lives desperately fearing reality.
