The 'existing' self will now be inexistent.

We are like no different from an ant. We get life, we die.

The 'self' moves on.

Yes , it would be hard to know if he was a good or bad man, or if he was helping or looting labourers or if his boss was helping or cheating him.
But whats the point in this discussion?

Its very hard for humans to properly judge humans. My signature says it all.
But atleast each person knows to an extent his or her right/wrong actions.
Back to death,
If Hinduism is the way to go then it is these deeds that decide the circumstances of his next life.
Or in case of Christianity its these deeds he carries to Judgement Day.

Absolutely. I don't fear being dead (after all, I won't be here to experience it), but the process of getting there is often unpleasant.

I guess its hard to know how it will feel if you were in a situation where death was imminent (although it could be argued that we're always in that state). Logically I see no reason to think that I'll have any post-death experiences, so there's nothing to fear. On the other hand, humans aren't logical creatures. Our thinking processes are largely influenced by instincts and various chemicals sloshing around inside us. Its quite likely that a primitive response would trigger a large fear reaction in side me if I happened to be in a near death situation. Part of the reason we're here is that our ancestors had enough of a fear of death to avoid it, so the chances are there would be large instinctive desires to avoid it if it happened to come along.
 
Think of how stupid the average person is. And how half of them are stupider than that. But who reads this tiny ad?
