The opposite of life is whatever comes after death.. I don't know what that "something" is, though.

I don't believe in an after-life, so I guess there really is no opposite of life. Therefore, I agree with that statement.

Death is the opposite of life. Birth is just the prelude to life, death the prelude to birth.

Death to the kkk!

It depends on if you're referring to death as in the moment of death, or as in a state of being. I'd generally consider life to be the opposite of death, because I go with the latter.

Tranquility Bay is the opposite of life.

Positive reinforcement to anyone who knows what I'm talking about.

The opposite of life is inorganic-ness. (I love making up my own words.)
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 2/6/04 - 2:36:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, in general
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 2/7/04 - 12:38:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Whatever...there is not death.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 2/7/04 - 12:47:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Death is similar to birth in that they are both crossing into different stages, I would not say it was the opposite. Death is not the opposite of life, it is just different. Different doesn't have to be opposite

Birth is the beginning of life to which death is the end and the beginning of the next.

The act of dying is the opposite to the act of conception. The state of being alive is opposite to the state of not being alive, whether due to being dead, or a stone, for example.

I thought Ohio was the opposite of life...

Dying is the opposite of being born/being concieved, but not necessarily the opposite of life. Life has an opposite, which would be not living, or wherever you go after death,

if you beleive in afterlife then yes. If death is final than no
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 7/2/04 - 1:35:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
damn ying and yang... makes everything think everything has an opposite... blasted!
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 7/2/04 - 1:38:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I think life is the opposite of death. The act of being born is the polar of the act of dying but death is a state, as is life and so I'd say they were opposites.
18 yrs ago - Sunday 8/8/04 - 9:55:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
The state of being Dead and the state of being alive are opposites...but the moment of birth and the moment of death are opposites...so I guess it depends on how you interpret the question
18 yrs ago - Sunday 8/8/04 - 10:22:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
death could be considered both an act and a state, so i'm going to have to disagree, partially.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 8/20/04 - 5:33:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
birth and death are opposites and there must be an opposite for life, maybe the opposite of life comes after death or even before birth... who knows

"death could be considered both an act and a state, so i'm going to have to disagree, partially."

It depends on how you define birth

I agree with dreamdrops

Wow. never thought of that. Of course now, it will nag that crap out of me all day. While we're talking opposites, does anyone know the opposite of "funny"? Thanks.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 8/20/04 - 6:26:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Are we talking about a bodily death and life, or what happens after the body dies?
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 8/20/04 - 6:37:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would guess bodily death/life, whatever that means
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 9/8/04 - 1:30:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Dude ... that's deep ...
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/04 - 6:35:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nothing comes after death so the opposite of life is nothingness
