Do people really think about death? I mean really think about it? Especially from a non-religious point of view anyway. You live your life. Then it ends. How do you define end? End is nothing. No thoughts, no sight, no sound, no existing. I think the meaning of life is well defined as a function, a flawed process of pointless existence. Why exist? God it's depressing, I know. People would rather die believing in a god to guarantee an existence after death. You cease to exist after death? The whole function of a god is to try and make sense of the world and out place within it. An explanation of things we rather not think about. By worshipping a deity, they will be rewarded..... huh? The end will be dark, unaware of even the word 'dark' or anything for that matter. Not in control of anything, interact with anything or even think about anything. End. Brain function is biologically dictated, it is not dictated by some worthless god, which in my opinion doesn't even exist.
How much Catholics and Christians in the world? A lot. Ever wonder why? God reaching out? No, I'll tell you why: its better to believe that there is a continuation of existence, where you can relax on a fluffy cloud, looking down at the people at earth (who actually do exist). What do you think of death? I will embrace truth and a pragmatic approach to life. Humans think they are important. If life does have a following existence, does that include all life? Even if there is an afterlife, who wants to live out an eternal existence without purpose or reason? Pointless. The meaning of life is function. What's the point in life if it ends?
I'm quite OCD when it comes to grammar and punctuation, etc. So, I was stumbling through your prose. However, there is a silver lining...
Your prose follows your thought process which makes this piece a bit more personal to the reader. And, you ask a lot of questions many of us have, so you ideas are relevant.
Try honing your literary tools to express your thoughts more clearly.
"Brian function is biologically dictated..." (misspelling). "How much Catholics and Christians in the world?" (grammar).
Take your time and review your writing. I know that many writers write from the fountain of insight that seems to grace us all at a moments' notice. Still, we must remember to sit back and review what we have written, to preserve clarity and creativity.
Catholics are Christians, and there are other religions with after life (sorry I'm not here to lecture you on the finer points of theology especially since I don't know that much, I'm just being nit-picky). Yes there is something comforting about the afterlife, or maybe just frightening about there being nothing after death.
Yeah i should have explained more about the poem. I went to a catholic school, so really i was oblivious of other religions to be honest. At the time i really wasn't as well read on other faiths and i thought it unfair to comment them. I realise generalising religions is unfair but I dont think about stuff like that when writing spontaneously .
In short thanks for your feedback, I have only recently began to show people my written work. It's very interesting
Ah okay that makes more sense, so I take it the lines of Christianity and Catholicism being separate is a grammar error, and you just meant that was the branch you knew about? (I was thinking that's more the sort of mistake you would expect from a devout Protestant not an Atheist). Yeah I think I've got you, well other then the nitpicks I didn't find anything offensive (as a Christian though as far as generalities go, I can't help you being rather ignorant of things besides Catholicism as well, I'm working on it reading about other religions,and the like) but I set a pretty low bar, and actively avoid fighting about this.
Well i think at the time i was really thinking along the line of catholics being one branch of Christianity and then added christianity as an extension. I didn't over think about structure then. As for being offensive is concerned, i never meant to be offensive but i cant lie and say i didnt want to spark debate; which is ironic as i said before i never shared my poetry until recently, as it was personal and not for sharing
I respect others faith but I expect respect for my lack of it.
