The behavioral sciences, such as sociology or psychology, are known as soft sciences. That means that unlike hard sciences, such as mathematics or chemistry, there is often much disagreement among experts in any given field. Much of what is said is actually theory, opinion and conjecture. But, one statistically verifiable conclusion has been reached which every behavioral scientist agrees with. That is, one out of every one people will someday die.
The question is not will you die, but when will you die. And the more important question is, “What will you do from now until the day you die?” Many people never ponder death and the fact that life on this earth will soon end. It is too morbid and there are too many other things going on right now to focus on death.
But when we accept the fact that sooner or later we will die we also gain a new frame of reference for evaluating what is really important and how we should redeem the time.
