Rory, a Guy Called Bloke, wants to know if being alive is better than being dead.
I’ve been alive ever since I was born, but I’ve never been dead. So, since the only thing I know about is being alive, I’m going with it’s better being alive.
Rory also asks if there are more reasons to be alive than there are to being dead.
I believe that when you’re dead, you’re dead. There is no afterlife. No heaven, no hell. Just a whole lotta nothing. So of course there are more reasons to be alive than to be dead. Being alive is something. And isn’t something always better than nothing?
And finally Rory asks how we define our purpose to being alive or what gives us purpose.
My primary purpose for being alive is to post answers on my blog to deep, philosophical questions like, “Is being alive is better than being dead?”
