"Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord"

If we in the West are so evil, we will get our just punishments after death. Why should that concern you? It's not up to you to render God's judgment. What gives you the right? How do you even know what it is?

We consider life to be a precious gift which we don't throw away carelessly.
Maybe that's why our societies are willing and able to grow. We're not afraid of living, as you seem to be. We're also not afraid of dying. Death is the natural conclusion to life, but there's a lot to do and experience before it comes. You think we fear death because we want to experience all that this life has to offer. That's something you'll never understand. It's too bad, for you.
Do you consider death to be a precious gift? Then enjoy it!!! It's all yours. No one is stopping you from experiencing it for yourself. Just don't bring any of us along on the trip. We'll go in our own time.
