Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love;—then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think,
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink.
I'm scared of death because I still have things I want to do.

God willing, death is kind. If death is kind, I may just cease to exist and not have the opportunity to float around ethereally regretting all the things I never did.

Agree to disagree.

Part of it is logical conclusion, part is desperate faith.

It certainly is a more enlightened view than a purely creationist view of the universe certainly, but it still makes an unfounded leap of faith at the very end. Sure science doesn't have the answers atm either, but his one is an unobservable and thus unscientific point of view. Logical perhaps, but not sound.
Pure creationism was debunked by fossils really.

He seems to do more of a "God of the Gaps" thing at the end. "None of these work, so God is the default."

Re: What's your biggest fear?

That Matt Slicks guy presents an interesting binary when he mentions that the universe has to either come about personally or impersonally.

Why is this? Where does this claim come from? That's kind of self-centered isn't it? To assume that there are only "people" and "everything else." Sounds like some self-interest to me. What about the whole spectrum of matter and objects and concepts and things?

Re: What's your biggest fear?

I'm afraid of dying alone and pushing away the people I love most.
Thoseeeeeee are the main things.

Also i was adopted when I was a baby and met my family when I was 13 for the first time and again when 15. And I've always kept my adopted family seperate from my life but my brother added me on facebook and tries to talk to me and when he does i literally can't talk to him or anything.

I just get really terrified about that life merging with the one I have now.
I've been trying to keep these things seperate for so long and now it's like they're trying to merge together and I don't want that. It just seems really scary to me.

Re: What's your biggest fear?

I have quite a few things I'm scared of. Death, zombies(which are unrealistic yet could they be? lol), tornadoes, apparently now earthquakes/tsunamis, clowns, plagues. From my list apparently it seems that I'm scared of anything that can kill...

I fear so many things. So many...

But I fear losing the people I love the most.
Oh, and living a life alone scares me too much. 0_0

Re: What's your biggest fear?

The only thing I'm deeply afraid of is being locked up. I suppose to put it simply - the loss of freedom.

Other than that I don't have a lot of fear. Although I do hate it when someone leaves, and you realize you might never see them again. They could walk out the door and get hit by that one in one million meteor and die. They could get hit by a semi as soon as they get on the road. So many possibilities.

Re: What's your biggest fear?

I have two fears that I absolutely cannot stand.




Dark corridors:

Looking at this picture is already making my heart race at a million miles per hour. If you were to put me in a hallway and decide to turn off the lights and think it's funny, I will literally kill you and I don't care if I am charged with first degree murder, because this **** is not funny to me.
I HATE the dark, especially when it's like this. To me it's like looking into the open-welcome arms of death.

And if I were to see any movements in that dark area, I would go ****ing hysterical like a mangled dog, screaming in pain.


**** I hate the dark. HATE. I hate the fear of not seeing.




Open Water:

The same rules apply to the dark corridors/rooms, except on a smaller scale, but it still scares the absolutely crap out of me.
It's not so much the open space. I love wide-open areas, but it's more of not being able to see the ocean floor when you stick your head in.

I can't stand not being able to see the ground in the sea, because I keep getting the feeling that something is looking back at me and I hate it. That dark blue underneath you with hundreds of metres of room below you feet that suck out of the light... I can't stand it.

I prefer shallow waters so much.


But yeah, you can tell that I have a phobia of the dark/night.

Re: What's your biggest fear?

I'm with Eternal Legend on the fear of open water. It's so incredibly dangerous that I sometimes find it hard to believe that there are so many people in love with the sea or being at sea. I don't get the great appeal about it. Water has killed a countless number of people before. It is a destructive force with astonishing weight and power that is impossible to control. Not to mention that it is filled with millions of deadly creatures, bacteria and algae.

Sometimes I get sick of hearing about all the shark attacks, surfing accidents, diving deaths, and the like. One way or another, it comes up in many other different forms as well. Take the RMS Titanic for example. Build the largest ship in the world at the time, claim that it is perfectly safe for voyage, invite a couple thousand people aboard, and the next thing you know, it slams into an unexpected obstacle in the middle of the ocean and over 1,500 people die. You call that safe? Why did so many people actually want to venture across the perilous, uncertain waters of the Atlantic in the first place? It spelled certain doom for them all long before that iceberg ever appeared.

Or, just take a look at Japan right now, as its lands are devastated, cities wiped off the face of the earth, and other catastrophes caused by uncontrollable masses of water crushing everything in its path and killing thousands. And then of course there is the famous story of a worldwide flood courtesy of God himself involving an Ark and a man named Noah.

My point is that all throughout history, right up to the everyday news, water (more specifically, the sea) has proved to be one of the most capable forces on the planet of destroying man, earth and buildings. It is definitely something to be fearful of in my opinion. I have also been involved in my own personal experiences to back up this fear of mine such as almost getting myself killed on a river before. So that's a big one for me. Aquaphobia, I believe it's called. And then I guess I have a terrible case of arachnophobia, a little bit of claustrophobia, and some social anxiety. I'm not going to lie, I'm actually finding it pretty weird that I'm writing this post to share my fears with this forum and the internet. Yeah...

Re: What's your biggest fear?

I get agoraphobic when I'm out in open spaces or looking up at very tall buildings. I don't know what it is, but it makes me feel sick and dizzy and if it's really bad I literally can't move myself from the spot. Sounds so stupid, but I panic.

I really want to visit New York some day. Very much doubt it will happen unless I can get over this fear.

Re: What's your biggest fear?

I'm aeroacrophobia, aquaphobia (seeing I'm kindof afraid of the ocean and drowning), and philiphobia. I'm kind of emotional (actually really emotional) when it comes to not being cared for/loved, since I'm a little insecure.

Re: What's your biggest fear?

Hmm.... One of my biggest fears if not my biggest is having the chance to save someone and not reacting. If anyone was ever in trouble no matter who they were and I did not at least try to save them I would never be able to live with myself. That is my Biggest fear.
