  • The answer is no. What gives our life its value is the fact that our time on this earth is finite. If we lived forever, our lives would be worthless. If you get given too much of anything, whether its money, gold or time, it loses all of its value because its no longer a scarce commodity. And if one lived forever, there'd be no sense of urgency to accomplish anything, since the deadline would be "forever".

  • I like the idea but my question would be that there is only some amount of people that can live in the world and the world can only support some amount of lives. If we were all to live then the world would not be able to provide the space. I believe that there is natural selection pressure on us humans and the fittest survives and leads his or hers genetics to the onward generation.

  • EXPANDING UNIVERSE. IN HOLY QUR'AN IS A SIGN OF ALLAH Almighty Allah says: " We shall show them Our Signs on the horizons( feilds of vision) and within their ownselves,untill it becomes clear to them that He(Allah) is Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things." (Qur'an,41:53) Who can tell 1450 years ago that the universe is expanding? والسماء بنينها بايد و انا لموسعون o " And the heaven We built it with power, and indeed, We are the expander " (And We it is Who make the vast extent, thereof ) (Qur'an, 51:47) Until 1931, physicist Albert Einstein believed that the universe was static. An urban legend attributes this change of perspective to when American astronomer Edwin Hubble showed Einstein his observations of redshift in the light emitted by far away nebulae - today known as galaxies. After Hubble discovered that the universe was expanding, Einstein called the cosmological constant his "greatest blunder." At around the same time, larger telescopes were being built that were able to accurately measure the spectra, or the intensity of light as a function of wavelength, of faint objects. Almighty Allah is the Master Creator of the whole universe.He says: Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. The knowledge of scientists is very limited to understand the universe. Rejection of Almighty Allah relying on this limited knowledge is not justified. DR.MOHAMMAD LAEEQUE NADVI Ph.D. (Arabic Lit.)

  • Why people should live longer it would bring more problems. We would have population become much, much larger then we have to create more jobs. How much one person should get paid now that he or she is working many more years. It will create economic problems. So for people wants to live longer they could choose to get read off other people so more wars or use viruses to controll population. Let's not intervene nature. Just eat natural food and stay active stay positive.

  • So her point is that we stay youthful? Some people already do that with the right lifestyle. If she wants true immortality then she needs to find a way of uploading our minds and disposing of the body altogether. It sounds ridiculous because it is. These are typical CA people obsessed with themselves, trying to avoid death. They better come up with some ideas to feed and clothe all of us. There’s enough people on this planet already thanks.

If in the future, we are able to live forever, the option should be to stop reproducing in order to sustain the same quality of life and not burden the earth and deplete all our natural resources.
