Screw, I suspect he means that because every day we are getting one day closer to the day we die, we must be "dying" from the day we're born.

Makes "dying" kind of a useless term, IMO.

I think that is what he probably means too.  As if we are candles burning down.  But I hope that his attempt to explain will lead him to understand what a stupid idea it is.

Given that it suggests that a person has a day they're destined to die, I'm inclined to agree.

The only time we start dying is when the body starts shutting itself down.

^^ Exactly.  It's got that wierd fatalism/predestination premise to it.

there was a guy - i can't remember if it was here or at a xian forum - who said something about god knowing exactly how many heart beats were left in my corpse.  I thought that was weird.  He saw people as corpses walking around by the power of god. I think there was something wrong with him.

That's a view of Christianity that I have never heard before. The "God as a Necromancer" version. Do followers refer to themselves as "God's Inferi" or "The Salvation Zombie Army"? Perhaps "Ghouls for God", or "Jehovah's Dead Witnesses"? The "Church of Jesus Christ of Re-animated Corpses"? "The Roman Cadaver Church"? Ok, enough bad puns, but seriously, did this person identify themselves as some particular branch of Christianity? I would like to be able to research into this interpretation of Christianity so that it can be properly mocked and ridiculed.
Seriously though... What would happen if the Great Green Arkleseizure didn't fram up the rammastam before the hermite curve achieved maximum nurdfurdle velocity? Now THAT would be something. AmIrite?

some flavor of protestant.  I do not think what he was saying was dogma.  I think it was an attempt at an emotional appeal to scare me into religion.  They do that a lot.
