  • It makes room for new people.

    Death does have a purpose. It clears out the planet for the new generation. It fertilizes the soil, it makes room for the rest of us. But I do have to say that human death doesn't have a purpose besides forcing people to do good in this life to make it into a heaven that may or may not exist; wrapped in the arms of a God that may or may not exist. The death of insects and animals has more purpose than that of a humans.

  • Beecassssss it does

    Death has a purpose because whoever doesnt think it does is a big dumb retard who doesnt think that it does. They are to scared to fight in irl but they hide behind a screen and yell at others. That is the definition of a big ass scaredy cat by the water.

  • Of course it does!

    Yes, because if everyone was to live forever, natural resources would have been completely used way back about 1000 years. Our kids would die when they reached 25 at the most. Why would we want to live forever at the cost of the mirth of our children. Instead of being selfish idiots, maybe you should try realizing that.

  • Man sin created death

    The most meaningful death in the world was that of jesus Christ when he died on the cross to forgive sin which is the cause of death. He lived a perfect life but for god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. Death apparently has a meaning. If you go to a graveyard you'll know what I mean. There you have all the chemicals reguired to make a human. Well, try to bring it to life.

  • What is Death?

    Death is seen as a great deal of debate. Why do we need to die? Death is much like the same as birth. It is not too much of a cycle as it is a journey. Death is a transformation, death is a door, death is the next step unknown.

  • Of Course it Does

    Death is life coming full circle. People live, die, and then the cycle starts all over again. Without death, the world would be overpopulated and chaotic. If death didn't have a purpose, one could easily make the argument that life has no purpose either, which I believe it does (but that's a different argument).

  • It makes life meaningful. Although death is a by-product of enhancing our survivability biologically speaking.

    Remembering that we will be dead one day, we could have the motivation and bravery to do things that really mean something to us- to chase our dreams, be true to ourselves, to love someone, etc. Because in the face of death, we are already naked and that we have nothing to lose.

  • Immortality is not as good as some might think

    We die do that society can progress. If the people alive even just a few hundred years ago were alive now, we'd very well still have slavery and women would have much less rights. Death is a good thing because it allows for change in our world and society .

  • Why would it?

    Well, there is no purpose whatsoever, it is merely the body giving up due to old age or disease. Of course, without death the planet would be over populated, but I don't think that counts as a purpose, as I interpret purpose as something more deep and, you know, meaningful.

  • Not dying should be the purpose

    There are people who have near death experiences and still don't have meaningful lives so death is not always a good way to ensure meaning. The death of millions of people around the world to motivate you to complete your bucket list seems a bit much.

    Living forever is not a bad thing. Do people really dislike life that much? {If you have your health and still can be active then immortality is good}.

    The world is not overpopulated and we have more than enough food to go around now. The end of death would mean we would come up with ways to deal with the population and resource issues and those working on a solution would have a lot of time.

    The fear of death has caused more issues than the fear of living. So living is better.

  • Not dying would be a better purpose

    There are people who have near death experiences and they still don't turn around their lives. So death is not always a way to get people to live a more meaningful life and the death of millions of people each year just to motivate you to do what is on your bucket list seems a bit much.

    Being immortal is not that bad. How sick are people of life that the idea of living forever is viewed as a bad thing. {Running on the assumption that there is immortality and also good health and still being active mentally and physically},

    There is this constant fear of overpopulation even now with the existence of death. The world is not overpopulated and we have more than enough food to go around. Without death one would assume and hope we would find ways of dealing with the population and resource pressures. Those working on such projects would be able to work on them forever for one.

    The fear of death has probably caused more misery than the fear of living,

  • If death has a purpose....

    It is because we've assigned it a purpose. Objectively, I don't see death as having a purpose. The living simply failed to combat atrophy. I'm not entirely sure about overpopulation either. Perhaps if the mathematics was shown I'd be more convinced, but I think there's a limit our population would reach even before the loss of landmass if the problems of atrophy, starvation, dehydration, suffocation, and thermal in-equilibrium were solved. The limiting reactant would be energy. If we managed to convert stone into food, then I'd see overpopulation being a problem, but that would require a lot of energy. So, if there was a purpose it'd have to be redistributing energy into the environment to create a more stable life-form imo.

  • Purpose to who?

    Purpose it a very human concept. Therefore the question is about if death has purpose to humans, meaning. Death, let's face it is an eternal nothingness. How could that have purpose to us. We give our own lives meaning and if we are dead then we are meaningless. Purpose and meaning are inherently link. Without meaning there is no purpose.
