    That does not logically follow. If that a new invention, is the result of logic and reason, that doesn't mean that being logical and reasonable at a certain level is enough.
    For instance an extreme amount of logic and reason is necessary to result in the building of a computer from scratch.
    A very extreme amount of logic and reason is necessary to build an invention that will grant immortality.

    Incorrect. We are the dominant species because we are cautious and predict patterns. Lemmings are not afraid of the unknown and look where that got them.
    There is every reason to logically fear death, even if that is an emotionless fear of pure logic, because you do not know where or what you shall end up.

    This is one of the reasons I am against religion, because it teaches people that they have no need to fear the unknown, that they should simply have faith in god.

    It depends. We're assuming death is painful, but what if after death you truly went to heaven???

    We can say What if? about many possibilities.
    Going to heaven would be painful.

    We have some ideas. Which may or may not be accurate.
    I based that on nearly everything I have read & heard about heaven.
    Spending eternity singing praises to a god seems like hell to me.

    You get Alzheimer's when you step (fly) through the Pearly Gates

    Every day is a new day

    For e t e r n i t y

    P S

    Why Pearly Gates? Although I have seen reference to Golden Gates

    When did they upgrade?

    Are they still keeping records of sins in a Book?
    How about using Apple?

    ???? 12 gates??? The top 12 religions have a gate each?

    OR

    12 gates for rush hour after disasters?

    Each gate being made of a single pearl???

    So the depictions of two gates per entrance are wrong?

    Gates should be shown with a single sided swing side
