I disagree with you, I'm not fond of death anyway you put it, and simply fading into oblivion is pretty horrifying, I don't care if that's the way I was before I was born, I didn't have a life to lose before that. So no, I'm not saying I prefer that to an afterlife, quite the opposite.

I don't prefer eternal hellfire of course, but I agree with bard that eternal unconciousness is pretty frightening.

I don't have a problem with living forever really, just living forever in the kinda afterlife people talk about.

Unless heaven is something ridiculously awesome and beyond my comprehension I'd imagine it would get pretty damn boring after a few billion years.

^There's literally no logic in being scared of non-existance. All your feelings regarding it will cease to exist along with yourself when you "achieve" it.

Being scared of dying itself makes sense, at least much more to me than fright of the self's nonexistance which I believe follows.

I've spent far too much time in my life so far, contemplating what death would be like. Far too much for it to be healthy.
Thoughts about not what lies beyond death (I tend to believe nothing does) but more the consequences of death. Not existing on a personal level holds no qualms for me, but my thoughts on the effect it would have on my family and to those who know and like me.
Of course we all die. It's a dead certainty (excuse the pun) and I have no real fear of death, unless heaven exists as an eternity spent in a similar state to the one we're in now.
Ironically, that would be my idea of hell.
I'd settle for nothing. After all isn't not being born yet the same thing?
And that wasn't so bad was it?
Imagining "living forever in the kinda after life people talk about" is a kinda silly and deluded way to think and very probably a complete waste of time.

The idea of nothingness scares me. I want to experience things.
