  1. There’s definitely plenty of people who think that death is good, just look at the Death Positive Movement : http://www.orderofthegooddeath.com/

  2. About Dumbledore phrasing things weirdly: Don’t forget that he is over a hundred years old. And in top of that sounding wise is a part of his job and image. So maybe he just falls back to that phrasing.

  3. Back when I first read this I thought Dumbledore here was being a stand-in for the people who think that atheists can’t be moral because they don’t believe in anything that gives intrinsic meaning to the everything.

  4. My parents and brother are real Deathists. My mother (54) repeatedly insists that she wants to die sometime in her 80s, despite her mother (74) agreeing that reversing aging would be awesome. My dad thinks he’ll get resurrected by God, though at least he doesn’t believe in souls.

    My brother is the most infuriating though. After a long argument, I’ve gotten him to say, quote, “I disagree with you, but I can’t think of a reason why.” He knows he has no reason to disagree with my arguments that death is bad, but he still insists the arguments are flawed! I really don’t get it.
