Yet something objective like medicine clearly has a major impact on when most people's 'time' actually is; without it, people would die sooner

Isn't that the basis for why some sects of believers refuse blood transfusions and medical intervention? Aren't those people basically rolling the dice and leaving their health and their lives in "god's hands"?

That seems pretty counter-survival to me, but then, these are the people who believe that life is just a test run for 'eternal paradise'.

One would think that these folk would all join hands and leap of a tall bridge. Oh, but wait, self termination is a 'mortal sin', isn't it?

A celestial Catch-22.

The whole basis is stupid with blood transfusions.

But that's JWs.

Scientologists are the ones that are anti-meds and John Travolta murdered his own son by denying him anti-seizure meds.

LOL, well just rock on and ignore me then. Your inability to understand what I am saying doesn't make me ignorant, it just says you do not understand where I am coming from. It is mutual, though, as I have no idea what you are persisting in for a point. So, I am done here. 

It makes you ignorant when all you have is a comforting lie.

It's just as well not everyone is as intellectually lazy as you are.  Find out the how much the global life expectancy has increased since 1900 before coming up with it's your time to die crap.
