I understand where you're coming from, being once Christain myself.

But I don't see death as being bad and life as being good. I believe that death is a necessary part of life, in evolutionary terms. We are but mere containers that hold genetic material. This genetic material mutates and replicates every once in a while to ensure variation in the species, so that if some sort of stress comes along and wipes out some the species, there is enough variation to ensure that some members of the species will continue. Death exists soley for the reason of keeping our genetic material flexible. Arguably, our genes are the only part of us that is immortal. So I have to disagree. Nobody knows what created life, or if it's really just been around all along. I don't see why it's necessary to include a loving being as a creator of life. If life was created it could be a vast range of things (a power, force, etc.).

Keith: "nothing comes from nothing."

I think that supports my argument. Maybe nothing was ever created. Matter are life are just always changing into different forms in an infinite universe. I suppose I love you too, in the general sense that I love and respect all creatures. Peace.
