Old people were once thought to be good advisers, good friends, and good to have around. Now we have surgeries to disguise our aging. And that’s why we have this paranoia about smoking, or drinking or anything else that harms the body, because we don’t really believe there’s anything else. That’s really what drives it – it’s a kind of atheism. We believe that when life’s over, that’s really it. It’s a relief to know through our faith that there’s something quite different – death means that life is changed, not taken away.
