  • No death would exist if Adam and Eve wouldn't have bitten the apple and committed original sin.

  • If we are lucky, we get to grow old, then die. But our bodies are just a vessel that houses the spirit, which never dies. Our spirits live on for eternity in Heaven. A part of us also lives on in the people whose lives we have touched. So I guess in a way, we never really die.

  • It's the circle of life. Living conditions would be horrible if everyone born lived forever.

  • Everything works in a cycle - including life. If we never died that cycle would end.
