Let's say there's a medical break through tomorrow. Cell aging can be frozen somehow. Leading a reasonably healthy life, there is nothing but a terrible incident that could end your life.

If you could aquire this type of immortality would you want it?

Hell yes. If I get tired of living I could always take up some stupidly dangerous "extreme" sport like "Hogtied Base Jumping Without a Parachute".

Chris I feel someone's answer to the question of immortality says a lot about their philosophical orientation. Some people wouldn't want to mess with "god"'s design. They are willing to meet "god" even and wouldn't want to prolong life beyond its normal greatest extent for that reason. Some people would never want to have to commit suicide, when they had had enough, like you would be okay with. Reckon buckshot would be best on an ewok.

voted no,
not because of my Christian beliefs but that during your life time you would have accumulated so much wisdom that It'd drive you nuts and you'd hate everyone, and be so lonely.Then live forever like it along with a whole load of people that you couldnt stand.

If I could be immortal, I'd go for it. But could I have back the body I had when I was 19?:D:
But, even if immortal, I suspect I would become a recluse...which is where I seem to be headed currently...
...and NO EWOK HUNTING!
That's just WRONG.

I voted no, (1)because I would never be able to retire from work.(2)there are way too many people on this planet already,and eliminating the natural process of death would only make it worse.(3) as long as there is no hell(crossed fingers) I am not afraid of death.

I don't think I like the idea of immortality in our current state of world decay but if we were in Edenlike conditions, I would love it. I would walk around the world in every direction and see all there is to see.

I also think immortality would end up being entirely too frustrating. You would have so much wisdom but likely people wouldn't really listen to you and you'd watch everyone else making the same mistakes over and over and over again. Then you'd probably just end up killing yourelf anyway...
