Worshiping Immortality at the Church of Perpetual Life – Motherboard, 2016, 21:27 -- https://youtu.be/EvaC67CeBDA
As our society constructs death as scary and wholly negative, it is understandable that individuals will want to ward off death as much as is possible. Whether these people are in denial of death or just simply afraid of death, a discussion on why such tremendous energies are spent trying to avoid death is needed. If we are constantly trying to delay death while we are living, then what is the point of life? While these individuals may be trying to live as long as possible, their lives seem to be dominated by an obsessive reluctance to embrace the inevitable. Their fanatacism with immortality may be approriately called a religion.
