Would you rather know the date of your death or the cause of your death?

Con Meaning: Date of your death...

Pro: Cause of you death...
Crazzy

Con

I would not want to know the date of my death, because the shock of knowing when you die, you would just cry all day, knowing that your going to die at that time, day, month. Its such a sad feeling when you know your going to die at that time, slowly counting down the days till your death, its a horrible feeling. No one should suffer from that knowledge.

If you know the date of your death... you could cherish your final days yes... but what if you know that it were to happen a week from now... you would sh*t your pants and die paranoid...

I would rather know my cause so that depending on the circumstances I will have the ability to possibly prevent it... until then....
Crazzy

Con

Even though you may know your cause of death, you can't escape it, you can't cheat death, even if you escape the cause of your death, your going to die another way. And like they say, you can't live forever, there is also the possibility of dying of natural causes, not just getting hit by a car anything, you can develop cancer (A very Serious Case maybe), or die of old age, like i said there is no way of escaping the grip of death.

One can argue the reason of your death is because of trying to stop it. Similar to the story of Oedipus.

The Reason why I chose to know the cause of my death is because I have a head start to prevent it depending on the circumistances...

its like trying to defend that your favorite color is blue, while he is defending why his favorite color is red.

This sounds like an opinion rather than a debate. Post in the opinions section.
