Wanted Dead or Alive

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?”

    Agree, you can’t comment on a state that you haven’t experienced.

    I see my purposes in being alive are to learn and learn and learn (and teach where/how teaching make sense), to contribute to the lives of my children (even though they’re grown while it “doesn’t hurt” for them to benefit from additional wisdom, but not meddling, where more eyes on many situations are better than only two), and to enjoy where feasible — and live in peace and honesty.

    I do believe there will be an after life or future life (even if not immediately upon death and even if death is a real thing that is nothing); the learning will matter.

    As is possible, to live peaceably…

    In normal circumstances, I would agree with you. These days, all bets are off!
