So. Before you read this. You should know prior. You will not live forever. No one will live forever (on earth). Everyone poops. Everyone will eventually die. When a person dies they will be ‘happy’ to die…according to science and stuff….
Endorphins (“endogenous morphine”) are endogenous opioid peptides that function as neurotransmitters. They are produced by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in vertebrates during exercise, excitement, pain, consumption of spicy food, love and orgasm, and they resemble the opiates in their abilities to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being.
The body releases endorphins at death, making dying less traumatic. Evolution cannot explain this, because there is no selection pressure for a biological mechanism to help people die peacefully. But it does show evidence of a merciful creator.
Endorphin levels are elevated even by relatively minor trauma. Alleviating the pain and stress of a person who has suffered a trauma can keep them functional enough to take life-saving actions, such as staunching the bleeding or seeking help. That endorphins are released also during fatal trauma is a side effect.
READ CARFULLY. The Release of endorphins during trauma is not entirely merciful. If the person survives the trauma, the withdrawal from the endorphins can produce emotional distress that can contribute to post-traumatic stress disorder or alcohol addiction.
Merciful creator, happy death, trama. Some serious stuff. Let me find out that death is a nice guy after all…
