Thoughts of a Dying Atheist

by Edman

I was listening to Muse the other day—specifically the song “Thoughts of a Dying Atheist.” Here’s a highlight from the lyrics:

and I know the moment’s near
and there’s nothing you can do
look through a faithless eye
are you afraid to die?

it scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see
and it scares the hell out of me
and the end is all I can see

Of course, it got me thinking about my own mortality, and the natural fear of nonexistence. For me, the knowledge that I will end just makes my brief existence all the more meaningful and precious. What kind of response do these kinds of thoughts elicit for you?
