  • You have to stay on topic to the question

    By saying something like "Death is natural, we SHOULDN'T cure it", you are saying that we shouldn't cure it, not that we can't cure it. But even though I believe death is natural, I think that we could "cure" it. The reason for quotations is that death is not a disease, it is the lack of life, it can't be cured, for it has no bacteria, virus, etc. However, I'm going to talk about it like it is a disease. If it was a disease, it would have many symptoms, like cancer, strokes, etc. Like with some other diseases, it is the not the disease that kills you, it's the symptoms. For example, the common cold would not even be noticed if not for the stuffy nose, head aches, etc., no one would notice that they have contracted a virus. So, if scientists find a way to cure every symptom, we could technically live forever. But this would be saying you could find a cure for everything that kills you, highly possible, but very time consuming.

  • Science has the potential

    To prolong life indefinitely. I believe this reality now but nobody has seen any use for it.

    Plug you in a machine and you can stay a live until the machine dies. In this case, I suppose, you don't really "live", just "survive". It's a [i]cure[i] (Do BBs work?) for death. This side effects however, are hardly pleasing.

  • EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE EVER HEARD OF IT

    There may not be a cure to death had there definitely is a cause and this may be one of the most crazy debates ever but hey we go up into space, we found cures to cancer, we even are developing robots and self driving cars who knows what's next am I right? Next thing you know people worldwide will have a cure for the HIV virus so lets not debate on this and sit back and wait. The world didn't end and that was a huge hunch wasn't it?

  • Leave your emotions behind on this one and come along for the intellectual ride.

    This is 100% possible. I do not have the time to explain why at this moment, but if you are seriously interested in learning, up this post. I will check back and judge whether it is worth it for my to post my contact info. And I will explain this concept to you.

  • Aging can be eliminated

    I have spent a lot of time researching the evolutionary benefits of death. As it turns out, there aren't any. Death is a compilation of unnecessary and potentially rectifiable mutations that manifest themselves after the carrier has produced children. If you've heard of Huntington's disease or many others like it you know that some diseases have not yet been weeded out because they only exhibit symptoms until after the host has produced children carrying the disease. Death is exactly the same as Huntington's and does, in fact, include Huntington's. Death is simply a compilation of genetic deceases that manifest after the host has produced children carrying the disease. These diseases cause the degradation of DNA and, as a result, all cells and the bodily systems they comprise. It is certainly possible that, with enough knowledge of the message encoded in our DNA, we could eliminate all of the aforementioned mutations. This would cause a person to age or regress to approximately 27 years of age (the approximate age of total mental and physical maturity). Obviously they would still be vulnerable to random mutation, viruses, and bacteria. They would also be vulnerable to falling objects, sharp things, and fire to name a few. However, they would never die as a result of age.

  • Only with proper research

    I see many scientific breakthroughs lately involving regenerative medicine. We are not only advancing very fast, but we are accelerating the research process. There have no been so many scientists working togetger in the mankind history until now, and we are building more scientific parks and universities every year. As India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and other developing countries grow, they will help regenerative medicine research, and double or even triple the velocity of research relatively soon.

  • It is almost certainly possible.

    The question here isn't whether or not it would be correct to use science as a means to "cure" death. Obviously, curing death would have many negative repercussions. However, science is quite capable of reaching a point at which "curing" death is possible. (I'm not sure that people would want to use these capabilities, though.)

  • Yes death will not cured

    Death is a sickness and it needs to be fixed ! Enough of the pandemic of death. We are geting close to developing a cure for death that will change us all their is a lot of scientific evidence for this in the next 20 years. And even if you do grow old! No worries can scientist have already have a found to reverse your age back 40 years ! Do your research death is gonna be cured give us immortality! Their will be a global ban on haveing children globally and this will stop the population growth. And technology is already working on mass water oil and food production is a way it will never run out this is a project called narvana or utopia which will be achieved in the next 20 years so be prepared do your research on our new world

  • Everything ever had never been done until somebody did it.

    To the people saying death is natural; yes, it is. It occurs in nature and is, therefore, by the definition of the word, "natural."
    Do you, however, feel grief when your loved ones die? Do you not experience fear in a life-threatening situation? Wouldn't you say that dying is, in fact, bad? Supposing that a paralyzed eighty year old man was lying helpless on a train track. Would you help him? Imagine instead that he had a terminal disease. Would you cure him? Then suppose that forty years later he fell ill again. How about now? Is there some hard limit to how long a person deserves to live? Who are you to decide that for them?

  • No, science will never cure death

    While there science can prolong life, it cannot prolong it indefinitely. In any case, would people want to live forever? Death is a natural part of life and without it life would lose its meaning. Even if science could prolong life indefinitely, people would get tired eventually. It may have the potential to stop death but it would never reach that stage.

  • When you are born death is already waiting ....

    There is not a cure for death... This is apart of being a human no one lives forever. If we could that would be a disaster because there could not be enough room on this earth for everyone to stay here. Life is a cycle you start here as a baby wearing diapers needing someone to take care of you and when your older then you end up in a diaper needing someone to take care of you.... Why should there be a cure for death unless your unhappy with what you life and the way it is ending.


    If God wanted us to live forever then he would not want to keep creating life from us.

  • Death is not negative

    Death is our life cycle we are born, we don't even remember the day we were born...We eat,grow, become educated, work, retire, and enjoy old age, rest will come eventually don't take death as a negative thing because if we do not die think about how over populated the word will be

  • What Defines Death?

    Those that vote yes are changing the definition of death to biological immortality. Yes, curing the aging process and eliminating disease is possible. This does not end biological death. Is the eventual heat-death of the Universe avoidable? No.
    It is tragic that more people don't the immortality they already possess.

  • Life already equals to death

    Hey, come on, nobody wants to die. The idea of fading away 'forever' is huge enough to make us despise death. (unless you believe in afterlife for sure). Nevertheless, when we observe the universe in which we are living in, we see that every existing planet, star, moon, galaxy and nebula (also us, humans) is a product of the mixture of the newly created elements by the explosion (death) of another star or galaxy. The best theory scientists have come up with to date, The Big Bang (which has tons of evidence backing it up), is completely based on the death-birth relationship. The theory says that Cosmos gained its current number of galaxies and stars by the death of the first stars creating new elements during their supernovas. Thus we can conclude, death actually created us. Can we despise something that created ourselves?.. Its debatable.. But there's one thing for sure that death is inevitable even if you evade it by billions of years, the universe is going to destruct itself one way or another. So we should embrace it and try to see the beauty death can create just by looking up to the sky. Hope you'll find this inspiring, thanks!

  • No, science will not cure death.

    I believe that science will not cure death. Death is a part of the cycle of life; it is not something that needs to be "cured." Our bodies were not designed to be on Earth forever. Think how overpopulated our world would be if death were ever "cured." Science may help prolong life but it cannot cure it.

  • Its a natural thing.

    Death is a natural thing and scientiests shouldnt be trying to stop it. People live there life and then they die. Its just the way life is. I don't beieve science will cure death because theres just no way theye could cure somethong thats just so natural. Juat leave it be.

  • Death is natural

    Curing death is ungodly and will probably have consequences as well. We should just accept it. Christianity says there is a heaven so we do not need to worry about. We shouldn't try to cure as I said early, it is ungodly and will have consequences. We should really think about our choices.

  • Death isn't Evil, It's Simply Natural

    I get kind of annoyed at people who blame death for the fact that their loved ones are gone. Death is not to blame, people! Everything has its time once it is born, and the most science can do is prolong life. I know several animals like lobsters and jellyfish are biologically immortal and can technically live forever, and it might be possible for humans to replicate that process. Even so, there are a lot of downsides to this theory.

    The birth rate is climbing, if I'm not mistaken. Would we really want a world full of about 10 billion people in the future just because some people are too wimpy to die? No. Also, why would you even want to live forever? Whether it be for eternal youth or for not having to face death, being immortal sounds pretty darn stupid. Have you watched those anime or TV shows with immortal characters? Are they happy? No! I can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm going to quote Twilight. Can a person who never dies truly live? We have bucket lists and goals so we have something to accomplish before we die. Without death, life just becomes an ordeal dragging on for all eternity.

    Last, death doesn't even need to be cured! Why do you treat death as a sickness, something that needs to be cured? This is the circle of life kids, and death must exist for life to continue on. Death could be considered a scientific process and could be reversed, but we should not stop a natural part of our lives.

Death is not a disease. You don't cure anything that is not a disease.
