    There is no such than as death. All matter is merely energy condensed to a slower vibration. Energy can not be destroyed. It can only be transmuted, transformed and transported. We are all one consciousness, experiencing it's self subjectively. Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

    I really like that last sentence.

    Those that ascribe meaning to things that do not need meaning deserve to be tortured and burned by their quest to put out the fire.

    There is no such thing as irreducible complexity.

    Dying is easy, living is the hard part.

    Who, and at what point, is the basis for such a "need" determined?

    It is self-evident that such a need is personally based and will range in severity of concern from person to person with one perspective being no more or less equal to that of any other perspective within reason.

    The same is true for the second half of your initial sentence. You alone are determining that a subject another is curious about has no meaning, needs no meaning, and should dole out punishment when such is sought. However, you fall into your own trap because you're no more an authority on what is deserved or needed than the next person. You state your own perspective even though there is no "need" for it.

    I also fail to see how a supporting argument to intelligent design has anything to do with finding the meaning of death. Especially since the metaphysical heaven and hell hasn't been discussed as such.

    Sorry I know this is over a month old. Just wanted to put my $.02 in.

    About 3 years ago I was life flighted to the hospital. I was hit by a drunk driver. I made it to the hospital fine, however, while I was laying on the C.A.T scan table my heart stopped and I had stopped breathing.

    I was essentially dead for three minutes before they were able to bring me back. I laid in a coma for about two weeks from what I was told. A nurse had asked me a question. She asked me if I had seen anything while I was laying there without a pulse. I can honestly say that there was nothing there. If anything it was like a dreamless sleep.

    What is the meaning of death? From my experience my answer to this is nothing. There is no afterlife. I had no conversation with a past loved one that died. There was no tunnel or light. There was no demons or angels. No pits of fire or cloud city. No signs that read "Beware all ye who enter here" nor is there Saint Peter standing by a gate checking for your name in a book. Just nothing.

    Its funny to see what torure's the minds of mortals.

    We are all stardust and stardust we will become. Live and when time comes if you have no regrets then you had a very good and happy life. Its not the destination, its the journey and the paths you take.

    Death is a passage to the afterlife. To a life free from politics, religions and other problems.
