    It is a mercy of G-d that one dies at a stage and gets a new life in heaven of new dimensions.

    Well, He is. If we take those stories at face value. Considering that children have a risk free pass to Heaven, how important can a brain cancer be, if you get a guarantee of playing harp in heaven for all eternity with Jesus or whomever else? That would be an offer I could not refute, if I believed those things.

    He might not be so merciful with the ones who did not have that (unfair) "privilege", though.

    Apart from the mercy of death for the elderly, there is also the mercy for the sick....of any age...including children.

    Also, there's only so much biomatter to go around. More and more humans means less and less animals. Will we eventually be forced to switch to soilent green.

    This is the first time I have heard this "only so much biomatter" idea.
    What is your source

    G-d is not only merciful but also Master of the Day of Judgement, he would take care of such adverse factors, I agree with you.

    Telomeres. They get shorter and shorter and with them dies the regenerative power of the body.

    So, it is better to have adverse factors, right? According to this logic, a little child who dies of brain cancer is very lucky. Which seems a bit odd.

    What is odd with it?
    Life in every form is precious.

    Do you include the black death bacterium in the set of things whose life is precious?

    If there had been no disease, there would have been no treatment, no life and no death. Right?

    I think because the Bible is right, after all. (Romans 5:12)

    Ha ha. That is so very true. It seems that sage Chavyan had a solution to this.

    So, was the life of that bacterium, that probably wiped out 50% of the population in Europe, precious?

    No, but it does serve a purpose - population control, which is a valuable if not admirable trait.

    Why science unable to control Death ?

    Because life and death are creations of G-d:
    [67:1]In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
    [67:2]Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things;
    [67:3]Who has created death and life that He might try you — which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Most Forgiving.
    [67:4]Who has created seven heavens in harmony. No incongruity canst thou see in the creation of the GraciousGod. Then look again: Seest thou any flaw?

    Incomplete knowledge, insufficient interface, the will of one superseding the will of another, etc., etc.

    ... and according to 1 Corinthians 15:26 ' enemy death ' will be brought to nothing.
    The time is coming when ' death ' will be No more - Revelation 21:4-5
    ' Death ' will be swallowed up forever - Isaiah 25:8
