I think, given that we are obviously completely mired in a culture of death-as Kevin Miller notes, 4000 babies will be killed today, so what’s one more 41 year-old woman?–we need to resurrect some words.
Thanatic: of or belonging to death;..deadly: "We live in a thanatic country."
thanatoid, a. resembling death; apparently dead. As in "The woman is thanatoid, since she can’t feed herself."
thanatorium, n. An establishment where people are received in order to be killed. "The hospice in Florida is a thanatorium!"
thanatophilia, n. An undue fascination with death. "’Just let her die!’ shouted the thanatophiliac husband."
Our culture is so crazy about killing that it must be inthanity, if only it were temporary inthanity.
I don’t know foreign languages, but … If thanos is the root word for death, then does Athanasius mean against death?
The Greek root is thanatos, I think.
The name “Athanasius” means “immortal.”
Jack Kevorkian claimed to be the pioneering member of a new medical specialty, thanatology.
