Fear of Death?
Posted in Apologetics on Thu, Oct 20 2005 - 01:26 PM
I have yet to meet an atheist who fears death. I do not fear death. I do, however, fear pain and indignity, but that may be the process of dying.

I proudly pledge my allegience to my country, and fondly touch my flag as its symbol, and salute it with a patriot's heart as it passes. HOWEVER....I want to make my pledge only a patriotic activity!
