would you like to avoid death, Life is beautiful, A great gift from God so we should want to live forever.Advanced technology, genetic engineering, Human Cloning and Science have raised this question "How long we might live". What do you think? Or do you believe that there is a time for everyone to die, no one should live forever.I think I would like to live forever only If I am Health and Strong.

Well if it means I would grow old to be 1000 or more years old, then Nope I do not want to live forever. If it means I could pick an age and remain that way for ever. Then yes. This way I could see my children and their children and so forth for ever and ever.

Hi hard working gurl: I ask myself this question after reading this discussion. If this is the case I would like to stay just at the age I am, maybe 2 or three years less because I'm enjoying the blessings of life I have these days. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO

Well I have not been blessed so much these days, but the fact that I am alive and still have my children is a blessing in itself. You have a nice day also and may we think and believe as today. :)

If I will be young forever then why not? But if I'll grow old like a normal person do then I dont want to live forever. And if the world is not a better world to live in then I'ld rather perish.

At first, immortality may seem good..but witnessing love ones age and die in front of you for a number of times, you might consider that gift to be a curse.. this what you'll find in Christopher Lambert's Highlander series...

I agree with you .Could you please tell me whether Christopher Lambert's Highlander series is a T.V. serial and if so on which channel can it be viewed?I like to live long to see the natural and other beauties of this world.But as you say to see those whom you love suffering isn't a pretty sight.

Yeah, I think tat immortality is absolutely crap. All in life has sense. There is nothing accidentally in our experience, even this part with the end of It. Immortality sounds like endless pain, which is the worst thing, which someon could imagine.

Actually living forever was what Jahovah intended for us when he created the world. This is still to come when his kingdom with Jesus Christ His annointed King comes upon our earth.

It does depend on whether my loved ones get to live forever as well! I would not like to be the only immortal one because over time all the people I care for and know would be gone and there would be no point going on. If we could all live forever together in a healthy and happy state, why not?

No, I dont think we should live forever, unless the process of aging were to be stopped.Plus I dont think I could take this mean and cruel world for ever. I know we are all born to die when God sees it is our time.And I think he knows what he is doing!!

I would not like to live forever. I am in my 50's now and already I use a walker or a wheelchair. Life is hard enough as it is, I would think it would just get worse. If I were healthy, I still probably wouldn't want to live forever. I think it would be hard to see everyone you love die before you. You would be the only one to remember how things were and it might be hard to adjust. There would come a time when you were all alone unless you get new friends.

I also wish that I can live longer too. I have so many things that I haven do yet. I dono I can live for how many years, but I really don't want to end my life so fast! Only God will know that we still have how many years. Sometimes i ask my friend, why we should end our life so fast, some people end their life when they still young... Our life is depend on God. Now what we can do now is always take care of our health. It's hurt when someone that are closed related to you are gone, but what can we do:(

I feel that being born, living a life and then dying is a natural process, so whilst my emotions may want to live forever, there is a part of me that just wants to go with the flow of nature. The time to die is the time to die, and we don't really get to know in advance when this is, so all I can say is that when it die, it is always the right time. It is karma. _Derek

Death is sometime not a curse but a welcome - Death is not always bad,some people do look forward for it.
I think we get old because of our organs aging and failure to keep the body repaired.So in the future there will genetic engineering or bionic organ transplant to keep the body alive. There are few great movies telling about such tales.Put the human mind is special even if we become immortal being health and strong, but what is the state of the mind,will the mind be corrupted?

don't you think it would be too tiring if we live that long, long enough even at the age of more than a hundred years?i'd rather say, i have lived a fulfilled and purposeful life than have to lived this number of years. first hindrance to this would be the physical body. unless we'd live life like edward and the other vampires of twilight then our physical bodies would not be a problem. but then we would not be in within His likeness. Life is indeed a God-given gift. i prefer not to own it completely but have it for me to live even if for a just a little while

I am a chinese. in ancient china,many people seek living forever,such as Taoism is a religion seeking immortailty,they practise qigong and looking to find the elixir of immortailty . some emperors also seek eternal life,so they sent envoys to oversea with sacrifice of children for God .however ,they all failed ?so live forever just a dream which may be not be achieved forever .why human want to long life ? i think most reasons is to enjoying fun when living .so any way ,to myself ,I do not want to be live forever ,beacuse without my lover ,my dear NaNa ,that is no any fun ,no any significant meaning to my lonely living forever .just like our chinese said , no lover no life.anyway ,that is my opinion about it?

Hi Crazy Poster: I agree with you, life is a beautiful gift and life has been good with me. I would like to live forever only if I'm healthy, I have friends and in my mind I find a reason to stay living if you know what I mean. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO

To live in happiness and health. Would love to. To live forever. But that's just an illusion. That's what sets us apart from our Creator. But while we cannot extend the length of our lives we can sure strive to deepen its breadth! And that sets us apart from one another.

No, I don't want to live forever. I want to live long enough to do things that I enjoy and accomplish the goals I want to complete. I would not want to stay alive forever if the people I love do not stay alive forever with me. I would like to stay alive with good health.
