There is a simple argument to this which is the following:
children dont care or are even aware of death, and still most of them
have more meaning in life than most "older children".
would say "death gives A meaning to life", but by no means THE meaning
to life, as implied by the statement in the subject. You can have lots
of those =]
>But in those cases it's not *death* and *harm* that give us

There is an incoherence here I suppose..
How can you avoid something that does not exist?
This is an argument in FAVOR of
the statement, not against, IMO.
