Why do people fear death?

Most people believe that their lives have value of some sort; they enjoy living and they are accomplishing something with their lives. There remains a great deal of debate about life after death, but we do know that when you die, your life as you know it ends, and you will no longer have the body, the home, the MP3 files, the friends, pets, or anything else that you have while alive. It's a lot to lose.
