Why Do We Find Death So Unnatural?

Have you ever wondered why we find death unnatural? Why we don’t respond to death by saying “Great, this is nature’s way of clearing out the old” but instead we protest, grieve, and mourn. In this Short Answers video, Solas’s Andy Bannister explores some of the strange ideas we have about death—and helps us consider whether atheism or Christianity makes better sense of our instinctive reactions to death and dying.
