Getting things backwards …

 What the Fear of Death Does to Your Beliefs | RealClearScience.

The assumption here seems to be that fear of death somehow prompts people to believe in God. Actually, it's the other way around: Belief in God leads one to think that one will be judged after death, which makes death scarier.


  1. If I didn't die, why should I care what God thinks?

  2. I suppose the answer would be because you owe your being to him and what He thinks might be of some use.
