Rev-- Let's make this question more personal. What law of science has a baby born with an aggressive cancer broken? Or a positive lovely person,with a family, who develops Motor Neurone disease at 40? Or a gentle, brilliant elderly person who is gradually losing their mind to Senile Dementia?

Also I notice in your questions all the lovely positive flowery attributes (esp. no. 8!!!) are with the god believers and the atheists are hard and nasty! And yes I do believe this is 'IT'. No eternal life, heaven or other get-out clause. So I try to make my time meaningful, and I hope I may be remembered fondly by a few people. Death, as I see it, is as natural as life.

PS- Atheists/Humanists CAN do number 8 (as well as most of the others too!!!)
