Why do people fear death?Nobody is eternal and we all know that death is going to happen to each one of us. But none of us know what happens after death. We have only read somewhere that our soul will be free or might have re birth or seen movies were they show many things like going to hell and heaven based on our good and wrong deeds on earth. But whether hell or heaven or re birth there is no scientific proof of anything and everything is based on imaginary things.
Though we all know we do not feel anything once we are dead, most of us fear the death. What do you think is the reason for this fear? Is it because of the concept of hell and things shown or described about hell or is it because our life is precious that nobody wants to die or could it be people do not want to leave their responsibilities and leave the world?
If it is a third point that people want to survive to finish their responsibilities, I have seen people who have finished all their responsibilities and still scared of death.
What do you think could be the reason for this fear?
Note: I have raised this thread out of curiosity and I am equally scared of death. This is not to make any person feel uncomfortable.
