Death and Dying

Web Page Title


Death, Dying and Grief Resources This is a large and comprehensive index of resources with a holistic perspective; it is geared toward death as "natural" and expected for all living beings. Death is an inevitable part of life that none of us escape. The natural process is to be born, live, and eventually die. An interest in death is not 'morbid curiosity' but a sincere quest to know what is beyond our final hours.

There are essays, commentary, graphs and links on the death issues of our time: abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, life expectancies of different groups, genocide and more. Also there is a cross-national study in progress examining why belief in life after death is greatest among Americans.
