How do atheists kill themselves, knowing there is no afterlife? People kill themselves for such shit reasons I can't understand what's wrong with them. The fear of death is absent in them or what?
>>806 Suicide is a permanent solution for temporary problem, that's why it's so alluring. It doesn't matter if there's after life or not, even theists don't care, they just want the pain to stop. About fear of death, I for one, have curiosity towards what will happen after death so I have these thoughts about suicide. If you don't understand about suicide, I'm pretty sure you have no idea about why people self harm.
>>808 >have curiosity towards what will happen after death Nothing will happen. When you get old you typically eventually accept death. But fearing death when you are young is a good thing.
>>808 I understand 40+ people who have pretty much lived most of their productive life, tried therapy, pills, ECT and have still not gotten better, wanting to kill themselves, But it's these teenagers and 20 somethings who kys after one or too setbacks that pisses me off. Idk if they even understand the concept of death or their mental illness takes away their capacity to reason and look for solutions.
should this be a new board? I like the name manushyata and the theme, why don't we be kind to eachh other in this one : 0
>>806 Killing yourself is probably the right course to take if you're an atheist because after you're dead you will cease to exist meaning nothing can possibly affect you, therefore everything that you saw and did is now meaningless therefore it's just delaying the inevitable by continuing to live, you might as well accept that nothing amounts to anything and get it over with. Also if anyone wants to make the family will be sad argument, they will die soon as well so it makes no difference.
>>810 There is literally no point in living if you don't have any friends gf and is a good for nothing neet
because existing is living in hell , life is hell ........ sometimes simply not being is better than suffering
