Death by deadrabbit13 Death by deadrabbit13

See, the thing is, everyone always treats Death as the enemy of Life. This is a very petty idea.
I believe in balance. Death balances Life. Every thing that lives must die and that is not a bad thing. If we didn't have Death, we wouldn't value Life (because why should you care about something if its forever).
Of course I would like to live a little longer. Or a lot longer. However, if its my time to die, then that's the will of Life, and of Nature. I'll just have to go with it.
Death does not have "victims". He has passengers, patrons, charges. Not victims. (oddly enough, I find is mostly christians that have an utter disdain for Death)
So, this is for all of you who understand the same.
Death is no Evil Thing

That is true. So very true.

Night/day, Black/white, Sun/moon, Water/fire, Man/woman, Child/Adult, Life/death... everything needs a counterpart as you said for balance. The only thing I don't like about death is the uncertainity of what happens afterwards. Will I start a new life in another body? My same life in another dimension? Another time? Or just a deep blackness forever and ever? (I don't like the last one...)
Death is neither good, nor evil.

People always say, Death is inevitable, but that's a lie.

How would they know? I, for once, believe there is a way..

... A way to escape death's calling grasp.

Nothing, and I mean Nothing! Is inevitable. 

There's always a way out, an explanation.

I also believe there is an explanation to everything. We just simply haven't figured it out yet.

Still. This is just my opinion, and I respect others, as I shall expect you, to respect mine as well.

That is all.

Who said Death is evil thing? That's funny, guys...
I accept opinion not only about balance,
but being as a person, that has very deep interest in paranormal stuff, I wanna say - 
People usually mix things like evil and darkness. IT'S TWO MAZAFAKEN' DIFFERENT THINGS.
Death is black and negative for other people only because they fear death. 
Stop it, it's being funny already. 
I'm getting butthurt while Death is being insulted as evil, stop it.

Well, it might be easier for me because of how my religion goes, but for me death is much of an illusion as life.  No one technically dies as their energy lives on eternally in some form.  Like I said, dying is merely an illusion to me.  I will live on in another form of energy no matter what it may be.  "Death", simply is a time to change. A metamorphosis into a new me that is still the core me that has always existed.  Yes, I'm not ready to part with this form of me and neither are anyone of my loved ones ready for me to part from this form, but I recognize that when I do part from this form I have nothing to fear and neither should anyone else feel fear or guilt upon their "death".

Its part of life.

Personally I would say Life and Death are like siblings. Very smilar yet differnt. So if Life was good you would asmue that Death is evil. However that is not the case. Its like when people say 1 twin is good and the other bad. Why can't both be good or both be bad?

In other words I agree.

and christians are hypocrites to top it off, they believe in heaven, or so they say, as long as the person was "rightous" they will go to a btter place, agaian so they say, so if they don't want people to die they are being selfish. there arecertian deaths where i can see the person was a "victim", but in general no death is not bad. by default war and disease is not a bad thing either. or starvation. live each day as if it was your last, that is all you can do, even if death truelly is the end of the road, as long as you lived well it was a life worth living.
