    You stop breathing. And your heart beating.

    I don't think Christians can die, at least in eternity terms, then by physical standards, yes they are akin to the dodo.

    Being dead is when, you can no longer think for yourself, you are sheeple, your subjective mind has taken control, anything you can imagine has become your reality.

    However if you wish for a Christian's answer, they wont really have one, as dead/death means nothing to them, life is but a mere stepping stone to God, and thus not worthy of any concern.

    well, you got this term called "clinically dead"
    and there are a lot of states that resembles dead.
    like when you've almost drowned.
    but medical science is becoming more capable of bringing people back further from the brink of death.

    so from a christian standpoint, how dead do you have to be before you're truly dead and gone to heaven/hell?

    You can't because Christians can't die.

    As a matter of fact, none of us die. We just pass away.

    In Afrikaans we say "Kak in die pomp" It means "Shit in the pump". Pump, as in heart I guess.
