The world’s mortality rate for the year 2000 was .9 percent. This means that 1 out of every 111 people in the world died last year. On average, 1.76 people die every second. Based on this rate, here is how the numbers add up.
1.76 per second
106 per minute
6340 per hour
152 thousand per day
55.5 million per year
3.9 billion per lifetime average
G.B. Hardy asks, Has anybody ever cheated death and did they make a way for me to cheat it?
Job 14:14 If a man die, shall he live [again]? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Man’s futile attempt to conquer death can be seen in many types of religions, cults and even science like companies such as the Cryonics Institute or now known as “The Immortalist Society”, Alcor &TransTime. Who starting at $28,000 will store your body or your favorite pet in Liquid Nitrogen for the hope of immortality. Even the Egyptian’s mummification.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Job 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into [this] world, [and it is] certain we can carry nothing out.
John 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
Hebrews 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

John 10:17-18 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
