    Hi MikeNewYork

    Asking new questions

    After the old questions are reassessed, entirely new questions pop up. Some of these new questions may never have occurred to the person while deep in belief. A few examples include:

    How do I determine my own values, and how can I best live them out?

    If God didn’t create the world, how did everything get here?

    What’s the basis for human morality?

    What else have I taken for granted that isn’t true?

    Because God isn’t providing ultimate justice, how can humanity create a just world?

    What does it mean to truly die?

    Why did it take me so long to figure out what now seems obvious?

    If that can help.

    It appears that your question about "truly die" is more spiritual than physical. In the physical sense, one truly dies when one stops breathing, one's heart stops, and brain function ceases. In that case we do not use the word "truly" because dead is dead. In a spiritual sense, many believe that physical death is not true death because the soul is immortal or because resurrection is possible. In mythology there is the phoenix, a bird who resurrects from its ashes. In that sense, a phoenix never truly dies.
