    Okay, I've recently developed a theory on why people who are important(like Frank Zappa, Ghandi, Marc Bolan, etc.) die.

    Frank Zappa died, from colon cancer, in 1993; Marc Bolan died, in a car accent, in 1977(just before his 30th birthday; Mahatma Ghandi died, as result of a gunshot from Nathuram Godse, in 1948; John Lennon died, as a result of a gunshot wound inflicted by Mark David Chapman(who was trying to impress Jodi Foster), in 1980; Jim Morrison died, from tuberculosis(judging from the blood around his mouth and nose, and the lascerations on his chest), in 1971; Janis Joplin died, from a massive heroin ovredose*, in 1970; Jimi Hendrix died, from a mixture of wine and nine vesperax sleeping pills, in 1970.

    (* the heroin Janis Overdosed on was given to her by Kris Kristofferson)

    Yea, all of these people died... Millions of people die all the time, right? Yea, technically you're right, but those are all ergular people... Zappa, Bolan, Ghandi, Lennon, Morrison, Joplin, and Hendrix arent just regular people though, they were very important to this world. They were visionaries and good people, they wanted to make the world a better place, they wanted everyone to live freely and have a good life... Kind of makes you wonder, doesnt it? How can so many people trying to change the world for the better end up dead before their legacy is completed? Coincidence? Fate?

    One must ask themselves, what would the world be like without war? without religious wars? without destruction? A rather boring place. And thats why I believe, if there is a God, he killed them to keep peace from reigning supreme... What kind of a joke would life be with no punchline?

    So he snuffs the candle of these men and women of genius, these bearers of light, these bringers of peace; he kills them all to keep himself from getting bored.

    Who gave him the right?

    I refuse to believe Frank Zappa is any more important than at least fifty people I can rattle off right now who all lived quite a bit longer than he did.

    ditto.

    Until this moment I couldn't concieve of a sentence that would include Ghandi and Frank Zappa.

    actually, the Jodie Foster person was John Hinckley, he tried to assassinate Pres. Reagan...Chapman was obsessed with Holden Caufield from Catcher in the Rye...

    and of course there's always the rumor that Morrison faked his death...the only people that ever saw his body were Pam and the doctor who filled out the death certificate, and no one has heard from that doctor since...

    When they die it is purely a random occurence. Unless of course someone hates them enough to kill them, or they have drug addiction problems, diseases etc. etc. and soforth. :cool:

    you also forgot Bob Marley...and Jesus (regardless of whether you believe he was the son of God or not, he was still an important person in his time).

    you can also create a list of people who just preached love & togetherness and that were killed young...some blatantly assassinated (Jesus, MLK, Gandhi, Bobby Kennedy) and others that have conspiracy theories around them (Lennon, Marley)...

    like other people have said...everyone dies; many die young; therefore many important people will die young...it also depends on how you define importance...

    Yes they must.

    Keep digging.

    I like your strife. You seem to be struggling to figure this bizarre thing we're going through out. Good luck.

    Props.

    harrummph. Kids today !!! Musicians are cool and make great music,
    but lets not put too much importance in them.

    How do you feel about Mother Tereasa ? Or any other person who
    devotes their life to helping the poor ?

    Sounds like a plea for a bit of euthanasia by ennui.

    That, or it's one of those Friday posts, but a day late.

    Zappa died from an overdose of understanding. I refuse to believe otherwise so don't bother arguing.

    I worry about when Noam Chomsky or Howard Zinn dies! Or Jimmy Carter or Seymore Hirsch!! I know what you are gettin' at Mephistopheles with this thread! Martin Luther King, Ghandi, John Lennon were all purveyors of peace! Everytime I hear "Give Peace A Chance" a little part inside of me cries a whole lot. Shouldn't an Omniscient God spare and prolong these men's lives for the benefit of mankind? Really makes you wonder...

    As mentioned above, in the middle, between the eas
    I liked all these folks as much as you do, but is there any evidence that suggests these people die off at a greater rate than anybody else in their respective age/socio-economic/ethnic/cultural groups?
