Yes

VS.

No

Side Score: 18

Yes, why not? If I knew when, I could see to the things I've left undone and speak with people who have been my friends for many, many years to thank them for always being there and making my life more worthwhile. I know one thing now, however, and that is that it's been a hell of a life with all the goodness and all the unhappiness. I couldn't have asked for more.

Side: yes

Of course!

I mean, if I knew I was going to die tomorrow, I'd be up to all kinds of illegal mischief all night tonight, hookers, blow, you name it.

But since I don't know one way or another, I'm just going to watch Gonzaga play b-ball, and puruse CD for anything interesting.

Side: yes

Okay, what if it was oh say... eight years from now, how would that go? I think it would torture you.

After the first year or to you would probably get sick of all the hookers, skydiving, planning you funeral etc.

Side: No

Im with David ^....If i knew when i was going to die, i could make sure i did everything i wanted to before that day, i could get everything off my chest, and i wouldnt have to worry about what would happen afterwards. i could see what i wanted to,i could say i wanted to, and i could kill someone if i wanted to stoop that low.

I would have to day that I would want to know for three reasons:

1) It would make me get my life together for the better.

2) It would help me no take the time I have for granted, "Live everyday to the Fullest."

3) It would help me avoid making irrational decisions.

"Its Ironic that the day your born is the day you start to die." So you kind of already know when your going to kick the bucket, its just how you take and deal with this knowledge.

You know it also has a lot to do with your past and reconciling your wrongs, I've already in my short life reconciled my wrongs so I have no problem going tomorrow if that's gods decision for me. Death is a scary thing and I think knowing kind of gives you an upper hand.

I would want everyone to know so that I reap some benefit from the pity factor ;)

Side: yes

Nah. I think you're going to die when you die, and if I knew I would just think about it until the day came and go insane.

Side: No

I already do know! I will die at the very end of my life (on this plain of existence).

And then I will go on to whatever is next - I'm looking forward to it.

NO, KInda pointless it like all you got on your mind for the rest of your life and than you would wanna change the time you die by suicide or other fatalities it just would be the most horrible thing every, and what if it was like from the benjamin button movie would u wanna know when u were gonna get born to death

Side: No

Nope. I really hate why people need an explanation. I'm simply going to say no and the reason is simple because the knowledge of the absolute future takes away from my false sense of free will. I prefer to live in a world where everything is not predetermined and that our future paths are decided by choice. No need to dig any deeper.

Side: No

Plain and simple my answer is no. If I wanted to know then I would be worrying myself sick thinking of the day it would happen. On top of that I would like to believe that we're all going to die when our time comes, so there is no reason for me to foresee what is already to come.

Side: No

i wouldn't care to know when where how or why i died cuz then i would go a little crazy and probably end up fullfilling the prophecy of my death

see if i told you you would die in a year of paronoya then you'd say no i won't but it all ways be at the back of your mind slowly driving you into paranoya untill you die

Knowing your fate it not good. If you know when you're going to die, there's a chance you'll try to stop it. And this could seriously mess up the "plan of Death" if there is such a thing.

Side: No
1 point

I think no because it will be quite embarrasing and you will wait untill death doing nothing because ypu already know the truth. But I also think that it is too hard to know about your future!!!!!!!!!!!

Side: No
