with so much violence and crime going on would you want to live in a world forever like this.there is so much dishonesty and lying living forever is it just a pipe dream.i wouldn,t want to live forever under these conditions.it would cause to much stress on the soul to do so.

Reallyt would like the world to go back to the 50s where there was hardly any one stressing out for that word didnt come up at all . Mostly it was my nerves are shot! lolo. The only war we had back then was Korea war in I think it was 53. we had the cold war but then not one person getting killed unless it was spies and we didnt hear about that.

i don,t think i would want to go back that far because we couldn,t eat in white establishment,are we had to set in the back of the bus.blacks couldn,t go to white schools.for me it would be a nightmare.we couldn,t use the same restroom as whites are drink out the same water fountain.iam sorry that going back just a little bit to far for me.

am sorry about that ya must have been raised in the south for we didnt have tht happening in Utah . We had blacks in our schools!. Altho not to many but they went to all our schools we never had tehm go to a differnt one just for them. I do know the south was like that as I married a feller from Tenn. and I found out about it all when we lived there. but was then in the 60s and the schools had changed up and the blacks were allowed to go to the white schools. that seems so weird saying this but thats how it was. I did see where Black schools had been pulled down in the town we lived in.

I don't mind to live forever as long as I am surrounded by dogs. I do agree that there is lots of violence and crime but there are honest and genuine people too. I am surrounded by a loving family even though we might have misunderstandings at times. (c) ronaldinu 2009 - the more people I meet-the more I love my dog

if i am 'alone' in this world.. i would say that i wouldnt want to live forever, it isnt just as safe as when i was young.. the earth is getting very old.. the environment is much spoiled.. and people are getting 'more violent'. but since i have children.. and because i am worried about what the world has become, and going to be like.. i would like to live for as long as i can, just to watch my children grow up and try to protect them until they become adults themselves..

well man has damaged the earth but nothing is impossible for god he can fix the earth.when man was violent in bible times god dealt with mankind and he will do the same today.he only going to let this madness go on for so long and he,s going to deal with it.the state it,s in now who would want to live forever in the world.

Hi annjilena! I don't really think that anyone would want to really live forever! But, how long is long enough! I just want to live long enough to have a good life and be with the people that I love and maybe get to see the world a bit more. I certainly would like to live long enough to see things get straightened out. But, at the rate things are going I'm not sure when or if this will happen! But, I am in no hurry to leave at this point!

If I am to live forever, I want to play a role in the world so that I can try and save or at least improve the overall condition in this world. But living forever is actually a curse than a blessing, since most of your friends and family members will not be there for so long. But well, it doesn't take away the fact that someone out there, be it someone who can live forever or not, needs to try his or her best to save this world. If nobody cares to do that, then this world will just end up worse than before.

i understand this world do needs improvement and to live forever in it will require a lot of work.so much is going on in this world and some cities you will need a bull doozer to just wipe it out can,t be fixed.if no one cares it would be a waste to even try.
