"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the values you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memory of your loved ones. I am not afraid."

comment Why do some trees have a life span, while some don't?
The answer to (this question) may be relevant to you. I didn't see your question until now, and it is very similar to a recent question I answered!

comment What are the effects of muscle and fat mass on survivability?
Is this question specifically about resilience to falls/impacts? Or does this question also include disease risk? A major factor would be the age of the people in question... for instance, a high BMI is predictive of increased cardiovascular risk when younger, but in aged individuals (>65) a high BMI is actually protective, which may be due to an inverse correlation with frailty, or other complicating factor. Also, if you down-vote, provide a constructive comment for the poster.

comment What would life expectancy be in the western world in the absence of Ischemic heart disease?
This will be a tough question to answer, but people tend to die from one of only a handful of age-related diseases (other deaths are either infection related, accidental, or "rare" diseases).

comment GWAS: matched-pairs and logistic regression
@Benjamin I find that the published packages are only so useful - they're great for performing simple analyses via an established pipeline - but there is no substitute for creating an analysis that actually fits your data. Unless there truly is an established, published method, it is better to adapt one to your specific situation - all experiments are different and have their own considerations!
