An argument is a group of statements where the premises support the conclusion. Claims/statements can be false but not invalid (which implies a relationship between claims) or unsound: deductive arguments: if premises are true, conclusion must be true. Inductive arguments: if premises are true, conclusion is likely true. 1: if premises are true, does conclusion have to be true? , if premises are true, is conclusion probably true? , do the premises try but fail to give support for the argument? . The fear of death, it is suggested, must necessarily be the fear of some experiences had when one is dead. But if death is annihilation, then there are no such experiences: in the epicurean phrase, when death is there, we are not, and when we are there, death is not.
