Default Immortality

To some people it would be the worst fate, but to others it would be the greatest gift. Would you want it?

Meh, I don't want to be immortal in this life. This idea is tempting just like in movies. But when I think about the dilemma which faces immortals especially seeing their loved ones die and not being able to do anything about it, it is no longer tempting.

I'm not sure, but personally I know that death is human beings worst enemy. Nobody could ever stand in front of death and win. But I believe that death is what brings charm to our life. It is a reminder that life is short and that we should live it to the fullest, that love is what makes life worth living it and without love we are nothing.

Nah, doing the same things, watching life tick away as time passes by, it bores me - living for long would be cool on the other hand would be awesome.

I think people wanting to be immortal and having an ego go hand in hand. I, for one, really do not wish to be immortal at all. I don't even want to live past 80.

I'd rather not be Immortal, mainly because if the world does end in however many years, wouldn't you be tortured in space by not being able to breath? D:

Hm, I can either live for a long time through good health, having a family and working at my goals, then die peacefully, surrounded by my kids and grandkids, or I can live for all eternity watching my friends and loved ones die all around me, inevitably having to bury my wife, my children, and my grandchildren all the while never aging, and seeing the horrors of the real world over and over again all the while coupled with the pain of loss every time I lose someone to their own mortality. Gee, I wonder which I would choose.

I prefer longevity. I want to at least get to the twenty-second century before I die.

This is true, the battle against death never will end, not until the last living organism dies. "The last enemy to be defeated is death." Or something like that.

Death is not my enemy. I may fear it a twinge, but I know once it's done and over with, I'll be fine. The afterlife is drawing near. ;]

If someone's immortal they'd be stuck at a certain age. I'd want to be stuck at a young age. Around my current age. Not at old age.

Though not being able to die... Sooner or later one would be tired of life. And can't die.

For me, the choice is just... tough.

EDIT: Post no. 13 again...

Immortality was God's ability (or possession) while to us humans, everlasting life. But since our ancestor sinned, death came upon us.
Source: the Bible.

To live forever = The ultimate hell
