Why is death feared?
Because we don't know what is after life.


So? Being afraid of something that you don't know is the definition of "unsuccessful species".

it's natural that you're afraid of something you don't know
where did you get the definition of an unsuccessful species? i think an unsuccessful species would be one that didn't exist

It's evolutionarily beneficial to be afraid of something you don't know, because if that something decides to kill you, then you being afraid of it means you'll survive and be able to produce more children.

But humans have evolved otherwise. If we were afraid of everything we didn't know about, we'd still be below the Bronze Age.

just because you're afraid doesnt mean you can't do it
ie. if youre afraid of water you can still go in it

No they haven't. There's a difference between things that are part of the "scary" unknown (things we know we can't control, things in the dark) and that which we can make known. For inventing fire, if someone on the savanna got really bored and rubbed together two logs for a while, a fire would start and he would've jumped back in surprise and told his tribe about it. The scientific one among them would've tested it while being cautious, and then that tribe would begin to use fire.

Just so no one's alarmed, Ebola is really Really REALLY hard to catch. You have to be in direct contact with fluid from someone infected. And even at that point you have a fairly low chance of getting it, simply by washing your hands. It has to touch a mucous membrane in your body like your nose, eyes, mouth, ext.

The ebola epidemic almost over, with only 100 people being monitored for catching ebola in Sierra Leone. There are currently no people with ebolavirus.
