    We all have different beliefs with religion and also our own experience.

    I personally can't wait to die and see/prove what there might be after this life... even if it kills me.

    If you believe in God then you believe that you are safe, otherwise you are stuck being lost... by the Christian belief.

    I would rather live because I have too much to finish before I die. I want to complete my life.

    I have been searching for answers all my life, and nothing makes sense besides to experience the death myself.

    I think life is rather fun. I'll die eventually anyway.

    Life = Eating, drinking, sex, video games etc.
    Death = ???

    I'm willing to take my chances with life for now, death will come without me rushing it. B-)

    You'll die eventually anyway, no need to rush. Might as well live while you can :P

    Yeah that's my general tactic for everything from homework to final exams. It has never failed me, except for modern laguages.

    Life is here now, but death is inevitable.
    I dont think i'll be coming back here if I die, so how I bout I fully experience life before death comes.

    A word of advice from someone's who's been there, kid. The afterlife's not bad, but I wouldn't want to live there.

    I don't think that learning the truth about the afterlife is a worthy excuse for suicide, but I don't belittle the curiosity.

    If you don't learn what your supposed to this time round you'll get sent backwards to try again. Personally I would like to keep going forwards. If your not careful you will get shoved back somewhere in the 1920's or worse the 1600's. mmm fleas, lice, and the constant smell of shit.

    There's no reason to think there's any sort of afterlife, and there's no reason to think one can "experience death" if death is the end of consciousness. By definition, it would be the end of experience.

    That being said, I'd rather live than die because I enjoy my life and it's meaningful to me. Bar excruciating physical pain, I can think of no scenario where death is preferable to life.
