Just post what you think and state your reasons.

Personally,I think he's not evil. I mean think about it! While death may be an awful thing, a world without death is even worse. The world would've ran out of space and food a LONG time ago. Plus imagen a world where Hitler was still alive.

He's neutral. neither good nor evil. death happens to us all. there are no favourites, it takes young and old, poor and rich, short, tall, fat, thin....

You don't have to believe that it will or believe that it wont - just that it's possible.

Death is not evil, just very, very good at his job.

My opinion... Death is evil.

Nothing was planned to die, there is no circle of life and death.

There will be a time when death will die... or at least contained... haven't figgured out which in my little theory.

Maybe it's simply another type of manifestation that appears to us as our consciousness alters at the point of death. Some see relatives, some angels some the reaper. Whether this is a totally brain based phenomona or, as I believe, the first glimpse of something else he belongs in the same category as other death bed visions, not evil just doing a job!

Family Guy 'Death' is also pretty fun-kay.

And of course, all skeletons are evil.

Just a thought, have there been any reported sightings of the cheeky old codger? A mate of mine once claimed to have seen 'Death' whilst camping in a rather remote dark forest. Of course, we were all fairly drunk at the time, but still... I didn't move for about an hour, and I started to be thankful for bringing a change of underwear.

There have been alleged sightings yes, along the lines of angelic visions and normally seen accompanyng someone who it was later discovered had died. Interestingly there is no feeling of terror or evil ascociated with this either from the witness or from those being taken.

  If you believe me or not I have seen and felt spirit's, bad and good my whole life. Seeing thing's like that is pretty common in my family. Anyway I have seen death before. More than once and he had the most powerful feeling to him that I've ever felt from a spirit. But he did'nt feel evil. It was more a very intimadating feeling. I've seen'em three time's now and it seem's like he hang's around a person who is dieing for a little while before they die. Waiting untill peaple say thier goodbye's. Well anyway if you have any question's just e-mail me. w00t.gif

I don't believe that the Grim Reaper is evil. I do believe he is good and is there to guide us through the passage of death.
Maybe these lost souls are those that feared the reaper and did not take his guidance and in doing so are trapped and unable to go on to the next plane...Just a thought dontgetit.gif

I agree. He is just doing his job, maybe he just seems evil sometimes because he is at work and is angry at his boss or something.

The moment you are born you begin to die. The lesson is life is unfair.
