Smith argument regarding death is presented with the same evidence he uses to support why empathetic responses are incited in simple situations. His argument is limited by his own narrow view of death and his opinions, unverified or maintained, lack quality as his support for his claims.

Why does Smith state death always lead to betrayal of passion and remembrance for a close relation? In actuality the afterlife is unknown to mankind, so how can context and imagination, of an undetermined destiny, be the basis of empathy?
