  • The problem with infinites

    If you lived for an infinite amount of time, anything that can happen to you will, by definition, happen to you. That means you will die. So the concept of immortality is a paradox in an of itself. Secondly, you will also suffer infinite pain. Pain is worse than happiness is good.

  • Yes, I agree that people shouldn't live forever.

    The fact that we only have a limited amount of time on this earth is one of the main things that give our lives meaning. It encourages us to make the best use of our time and to experience as much of what this world has to offer while we still have a chance to. If we never did die, I fear that life would seem meaningless. I wonder what we would spend all of eternity doing.

  • Immortality is bad.

    First of all, unless you are cloned or frozen in time, immortality is impossible, at least for now. If it were possible, I don't think it would be good. People continue to have babies and they never die, Therefore, the population would over run the world. There would not be enough jobs for people and the balance of nature would be completely thrown off.

  • beginning and end

    What would be the point in beginning if there is no ending? If immortality were to exist, why or how would you have begun? The mystery of the end will never be answered. Please someone explain why you would want to live forever in the first place. Whats to live for if there is no ending.

  • Yup, who would actually want to live forever?

    Assuming the body does not decay while it is still occupied, as no flesh can last forever, immortality may seem, at first glance, to be a golden opportunity. But, when dissected and further examined it becomes evident that it is a fool's gold. To watch ones family and friends fade from history is a sodden affair. One would find themselves to be lost in a world in which no one can comprehend their views and experiences. Their days would be laden with boredom that can only be achieved from a life times worth of excitement. A life that lasts forever is arguably no life at all, in order for one to truly experience life, the threat of death must all ways lay heavy on their heels.

  • It sucks really bad.

    You live forever. Others don't. Think about it. If I lived forever, then my whole family will die, and my friends will, too. Watch ted talks. They talk about immortality, and its causes. They talk about other super powers, too. If i had a girlfriend, and she died, i would not die, thus, it would really suck

  • More intelligent compassionate people

    Immortality would allow a person time to practice different professions, developed different talents and accumulate more experiences. This would allow people to be learned and to be more compassionate, since they had gone through various situations in life. Imagine a skilled doctor with hundreds of years of experience, or a painter who combines various styles in his work.

  • Immortality is impossible anyways

    Its really just common knowledge. No one will live forever and people just need to accept things for what they are. Immortality can be a very dangerous thing to play with also I mean people would just keep breeding and eventually there wouldn't be enough jobs for people and there wouldn't be any balance.

  • What are you gonna do when the Sun explodes and the entire Earth is just gone?

    Yeah, you're gonna drift in space, suffocating, freezing or melting due to the extreme temperatures in outer space, yet not dying; unable to move, to die, or to end that pain. In some ways, immortality brings unlimited pain, the pain worse than the quick pain of death. I like turtles.

  • Immortality could be good.

    While the yes arguements point to population, the rest of your family dying etc. I say this;

    If we lived in a world were you could be immortal, the choice to become immortal could go hand in hand with fertility. There is nothing saying that an immortal person must reproduce.

    Saying that they will be bored or must have death at their heels to enjoy life is subjective. What if science is your enjoyment. A great mind would not be restricted to a few years for his/her work. They could spend thousands of years learning about the world, learning how it works and gaining a much much greater understanding of the world than anyone can ever have with the life spans we are restricted to. Medical and scientific advances wouldn't be subject each new generation having to spend 20+ years learning the previous work, great scientists could just keep improving.

    Imagine is Einstein, hawking and Newton, for example were given immortality. Or any other select group of great minds. Think of the advances if they are given 200, 400, 600 years.

  • Immortality could be great.

    What a silly question deserving of a silly answer. Seeing as how in reality we know for a fact that no one is currently immortal. Also, we are probably fairly certain that no one could ever hope to attain immortality in this universe. I would say that the question and answer would be without the parameters and constraints physics has placed on us. In a world without laws like that I think immortality would be wonderful and full of incredible possibilities seeing as we don't need to eat or go to the bathroom anymore. We could possibly conjure things with a mere thought and we could receive and give love at any time for any reason at all. So yeah, I think immortality could be great. If you think any differently, then you don't have imagination.

  • Nobody should live forever!!!!!

    I know, I know, everyone wants to live forever! But why? You would have to see all the future wars and depressions and watch all your family members die. And if everyone is immortal the world will be over populated. We need people dying every now and again. It's part of the wheel. If you are still not convinced, read Tuck Everlasting!

  • Living forever could be good.

    If you have a measly life with no happiness. If you live forever something good is bound to happen. Also you could learn so much more if you had forever to learn stuff. You could also explore the universe without fear of dying. SO i think immortality can be good. .

  • Immortality: Yes or No

    I would say no because a lot of people now really suffer in their life now and it would be way worse if they had immortality. People would have to work forever to keep the things they have. Women will continue to have children and we will be over populated,because of this Earth's resources will be limited,and because of Earth's resources are limited every one will not have homes.

  • Is immortality bad or good?

    Immortality is only bad when a species who does not naturally have that ability suddenly gets it. Such as a lobster with its never aging ability verses a human who was never supposed to have it. Lobster create no real problems, but humans, who already have overpopulation issues as it is, will create some major problems in nature. Dying is natural to us, we do not need to play the role of God again, we need to celebrate naturally Death rather than attempting to push it aside, such as cancer and other deceases. The more cure the more people to create the overpopulation issue. If nature wanted us to be immortal we would be immortal. (Adam and Eve is fiction, I don,t use the Bible as a textbook.)

  • Immortality is boring and depressing.

    For one thing, if nobody else was immortal, than everyone you meet will die and you won't, giving you endless suffering, unless you cut yourself off from the world, which will still cause you to suffer. Also, it will be boring because you will eventually keep seeing the same things for eternity.

  • It would suck to live forever.

    Have you ever wanted to live forever? Well, you're wrong.It would be horrible to live forever. All of your friends and family would grow old and die, you would be forced to move, and you would never change in life. Despite all this evidence, people still think it would be wonderful to live forever. This Essay will tell why it would be horrible to live forever, providing support from the book Tuck Everlasting, by Natalie Babbitt.

    Thus, it would be rather tragic to watch your loved ones grow old and die. If you lived forever, your friends and family die. I all of your friends and family die, you would have no one to help and take care of you. Namely, “Mile’s wife and kids moved away when they found out that he did not age, they went away”. However, people still would like to live forever. If you did not age, you would not die either. This may be true, but it is wrong because Everyone you know will die. Would you want to watch your family die?

    Now that you know about that, here is another reason why it would be horrible to live forever. You would never change in life. If you never changed, you would stay a kid or old guy forever. That would not be good. Also, in the book, Tuck says “I want to grow again. To change”. He wants to be able to live his life again. Although it is bad to never change, people still would like like to never change. This type of thought is wrong because you would never be able to live a full life, you would just be stuck the same age forever. This is why you would not want to stay the same in life. You would (clearly!) want to live a full and happy life.

    This leaves us with one last piece of evidence. If you lived forever, you would have to constantly move for fear of other people notice you not aging. In the book, Mae says “We have had to move many times because of this”. People might notice that you do not age, and BAM! Everyone rushes over and I quote, “like pigs running to a trough”. People still may be okay with this, since the trade off is being immortal. They should not think this because with the moving, you would never truly be at home. Do you still think living forever would be pleasant?

    Now that you know all of this, here is a little recap. It would be horrible to live forever. After all of the evidence I have mentioned, people still want to live forever. This is yet again wrong because all of your friends and family would grow old and die, you would be forced to move, and you would never change in life.

  • The pain of wanting a end

    As you live forever you will live with the free of the end life will be a pain. Question like when will it all end or how will it end. Was they a end. To continue living forever and ever will pain you thought as you hope for a perfect ending. But you don,t know how it will end.

Immortality already is a fact - I can make everybody Immortal in less than a month - We humans can stop aging (by wiping out all diseases) and live forever (like our Creators from the planet of Nibiru - The Anunnaki) - I got the key to our Biological Immortality - By staying absolutely healthy all the time - By doing my discovery (just an exercise for a minute a day) - My WVCD - The Weapon of Virus and Cancer Destruction, that cures and prevents any diseases, known on Earth for millions of years, even radiation disease - I will describe my WVCD to everyone, who sends me a check for one million bucks - Everybody will stay absolutely healthy all the time, living their Endless Lives, for Infinite Health = Immortality.
