So I was curious how do you handle this topic when a friend brings this up? A acquaintance of mine said this to me and we got into a discussion about it. She kept hammering on how "SAD IT IS! SOPHIE! SERIOUSLY! HOW FUCKING SAD!"
"If my dog is already dead" is something that you intended to include, I hope. Live burials and ancient property rights have no place in modern civilization.
i laughed when read this. then realized even dead i'll have a ton of places to go. My organs that are usable will go into other people. My ashes will be mixed with glitter and spread. and lastly if freyman is to be belived energy on an atomic level that will keep going with out my body to slow it down.lol
Same way. Keep logic and rationalism at the forefront and see them squirm in their exposed woo. Of course it never quite works like that and opinions never get changed.
We have a place to go: our atoms return to the endless cycle from which we came, Or something like that lol. Carl Sagan or Neil deGrasse Tyson could put it a lot better than I.
Here lies an atheist, a highly evolved freethinker that lead a finite life of infinite worth.
