  • 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.

  • No more Space

    Imagine a world with everyone being immortal. The world would not even have enough space to contain this much people. The world would not have enough space to hold this much people and the earth would be in chaos faster than you know it due to the fact that at least one child is born everyday and people die everyday (not to sound insensitive). This is the current world and it is balanced, but if people were born everyday but no one dies eventually the world would not have enough space

  • Immortality would be terrible

    Even though there would be some pros about immortality, I personally think there would be a lot more cons. Some cons would be: you would have to live through future wars. Obviously that would be bad, do I even need I even need to explain it? The second one would be, assuming if you were immortal and you couldn't get killed by anything at all, what about the end of the world? Yeah... You would be floating around space forever. Also, going along with that last one, what if you got bored? If you were immortal and the only thing that couldn't kill you was old age, then if you were bored you could just commit suicide (which is terrible). But if you were bored and nothing could kill you, well then, you have a small problem. The next con is the one that I would think about first. Your family and friends dying. I personally think this one is the worst, just imagine having to live with all of your family dying, your parents, spouce, and even your children. That would be terrible. Every time you would make a new friend, you will have to Iive with them dying in the future. Seriously, no one wants that... This is the only reason I would NEVER become immortal.

  • Life is Pain

    The thought of time passing by without change to you and the people around you at first sounds like a great idea, live long enough to complete all of your life's goals. Knowing you can die you’ll live life of the edge not thinking about your actions and just doing. It sounds perfect imagine a time when you were younger and you wanted to do something so bad but, you were to scared to. Now you would never face that problem because you can live forever so now you can do anything without consequences. Sounds great on paper but, what if? What if you go to shred that gnarly ski slope that you have always feared for the fact that it is dangerous. In your mind you can’t die so you go for it. At around 30 mph. You are having the time of your life but then it happens, the moment your endless dream became a nightmare. You hit a rock on the ground and start losing control, slamming into a snow covered pine tree like a baseball hurled at a catcher. At this point you are bleeding, gasping for air, and cold but lucky you, you're alive. Some skiers pass by and find your body and your saved… almost. You wake up one day and you're stuck, you look around and you're in a hospital. Glad to be alive, but you're stuck; Stuck like you can’t imagine, you try to get up but you can’t, trying to look around but you can’t. As if someone has strapped your limbs to this chair with wheels. Your endless life and all it glory and now you're diminished to a vegetable because you thought it would be a great idea to test your boundaries and disregard your instincts. Was it worth it? Living longer just to end up here, in a hospital stuck in your wheelchair with a broken C8, L4, and C4 vertebrae only giving you movement in your elbows and wrists. Giving you just enough power to get around on your own, restricted to a shiny metal chair with wheels, forever!

  • Living forever is a bad idea

    Living forever would over populate the earth,we would run out of food,and every one would have to live with pain. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FOREVER . If we had a bad sickness we would have to live with it.

  • 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: 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 SUCkS BALLS

    If you think about it, living forever can mean you HAVE to take GREAT care of yourself or else the pill you took will be wasted since you died. This means you take care of yourself less than right now because you are not wasting anything. Plus, you can see your family and friends grow old and pass away while you're the only person in your family to be living on this planet. So to wrap this argument up, I tell you immortality should never be created

  • I think no quite good for living forever.

    For people living forever, I think it isn't good for us. Because if you live in this world, and you can never die, but just look you friends die one by one. It wasn't felling good. You will be feel lonely, people who you know just past one by one.

  • Living forever is a bad thing

    If you were to live forever, there would be no time, you would just live through life while watching all of your loved ones die. And if everyone were to be immortal, the population would be growing and growing until there is no more space and jobs left for more. There is truly no living without death. If you do not die at some point then what is the point? You can't live without dying. Things that you do, the risks that you take won't matter. There are many more cons than pros in this argument, so I think that living forever is a bad thing.

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.
