Are there any people on here who are reluctant to commit suicide because they believe in God and are afraid of reincarnation or where they might go in some kind of afterlife? Like, the feeling that if you do it, it might not work?
No. I hate all religions and gods equally, with the possible exception of Buddhism and the Buddha. I believe in afterlife though. I don't know why I believe in afterlife, but I do. Perhaps its just blind faith. Perhaps its my OCD. But I don't really care... I just know I'll end up in a better place after i ctb.

I just cannot believe that God is a human-like notion. I believe in a neutral energy that is everything, continuing through time and space (doctor who, lol :D ) For me God is the evil and good at the same time. I believe that suicide is a method of the nature to eliminate the weak. It is coming from inside. No one can assure you to go against survival instinct other than the nature itself. and it has nothing to do with actual ability of being useful for the society. You can have no ability to move or be locked inside yourself, but if you feel that you still can be useful for anything then you want to live, but if you feel that whatever you do is not enough the nature automatically eliminates you. They say suicide is not a way out, but actually this is the way your body wants to stop suffering. it is the survival instinct in its core.
I thought that way for a while but I actually think nature is indifferent. I believe in God but I think nature on this planet simply doesn’t care one way or the other.

I’m an Atheist, so not really. If I were to, however, I’d likely believe in multiple Gods, as it is in some religions. This world is very sadistic in nature, and if there were one single God, he must also be quite sadistic to create such a world.

I find it hard to comprehend how people could believe in God after a half-decent high school level science education.
Zero evidence, zero justification. It seems instead a mark of a poor intellect or emotional weakness.

Matter exists. Matter doesn't need to be created. It just is. To posit a creator is like saying "matter exists because of magic" but then turning a deaf ear to "so what created magic?"

A world without god-worship would be a far better world.

Yeah, I never understood why there were super wealthy people that went to church. I’d think they’d be too intelligent to believe. I think they must lie to themselves.

My aunt is a retired Nurse with a Masters Degree, and she was still a devout catholic and went to church every Sunday. I didn’t understand that considering she studied Health Science in depth.

In the end though, those are just concepts that we as humans could comprehend. That "science" is all we have to go on, but there could be so much we don't even have the ability to understand. Nobody really knows what's after this. It's why death is the biggest mystery of it all.

I'm not sure it would be better if people didn't believe in something though. It's a 2 way street because obviously we've had many deaths and wars and all kinds of bad things because of religion, but it probably also keeps some people in check with their morality, even if it's not truly genuine at that point.

I don't believe in God anymore. Just like I don't believe in Santa clause or the Tooth Fairy either. It's an entertaining belief, but just that, a belief, a story that someone told me, that someone else just told them, and so on.

I believe theirs a presence, an intelligence, an energy that everything is a part of, not apart from, but a part of,life, life itself. Removing all the judgements and labels. Just life expressing itself in a myriad of ways. Whether as the blue sky, the children laughing, or me wanting to CTB, etc.

I’m Words of Stephen Fry

Branded him the hypothetical creator an "utter maniac" for creating a world "so full of injustice and pain."

The only thing that really exists is the Loch Ness Monster still surviving after all these years able to keep dodging all these cameras ..... God non- ever had an operation and been under anasthetic ?? What do you remember ??? You don’t thats why your conscience is switched off much like it will be when your dead !!! I mean Heaven in today’s world would have to advance so much - 2000 years ago there was literally fuck all to so going to heaven to continue doing fuck all for eternity they never knew no difference but today’s world ?? What about Sanctioned Suicide would it exist could I still use my account ?? Smart phones ?? Social Media Twitter Facebook or for the really young Snapchat ?!!!

Would heaven have cars do we have to get jobs to afford the better cars ???

Or what if heaven hasn’t caught up what if it’s sitting on a stone day in day out

If they’re a Nando’s il go to heaven if not elevator down to below ground level the Warner climate

I’ve tokd this story before but there was a user Xanax a determined girl who went out the Carbon Monoxide in a tent method - her documenting her set up and follow through was intense and informative- she has a few failed attempts but was a determined soul - on her last attempt in an attempt she documented what was happening and what stood out was that she wasn’t religious but for her there was that just incase nagging at her back Jesus and God have gone yet officially been ruled about by science (think this is what the Giabt The Large Hadron Collider is trying to disprove that sciense made the universe —- because of this and gd hasn’t yet been rebutted in her final post she remarked how a little prayer but a prayer was said by her which proved she wasn’t religious as opposed to my aunt on her hospital bed - not a church goer but when she cane to the hospital with kindness and other vita body parts failing out came those wretched rosemary. Beads where you say a prayer against each rosemary bead I think that how they work anyway - god gave her two. Moths but deciding she was wanted upstairs !!!

God no no he doesent exist how can he ??? He’s a legitimate cult figure like so many woman followed the Beatles in the sicmxties followed by Justin Bieber followed by One Direction

The existence of a suicide forum is a pretty compelling argument for atheism, isn't it? If we're the result of intelligent design, that doesn't reflect well upon the designer. What drug was he on when he thought I was a good idea?
Not really. If there is a God I would expect that God not to be so egocentric/ obsessed with humans. Humans created on accident, etc seems far more likely. Humans are just smart apes, not magical creatures that deserve to be the center of the universe.

No one really knows if there are invisible dragons, If the Bermuda triangle is a portal to another galaxy, If fish are telepathic.
Belief because "no one knows" is the abandonment of epistemic standards.

We do, though, know brain states shape mental states, and just as the electricity running through a computer is necessary for its processing, once our neural activity ceases, all the evidence suggests that our consciousness will thereby cease.

For some, belief is "signaling" to tell others you want their acceptance. Churches work like that: desire to be accepted.

A long time ago, when I told an IRL friend (friend happened to be a very religious Christian Korean American) I was suicidal, he told me, "Why are you so depressed? Jesus loves you!"
I'm an atheist, so I can't even begin to describe how that made my blood boil.

I dated a Korean American guy for 4 years and it seems like a lot of Korean Americans are Christian. Do you know if that’s the case in South Korea too?

If it is a GOD he or she is really hands off. The world would be much much better if GOD was preventing horrible things from happening.

I don't know. I've never been to South Korea.
Many of the Korean Americans in my college seemed to be Christian. I'm not Korean though; I am Chinese. Most of my friends in college were Chinese or Chinese American, but I had a few Korean friends in my friend circle.

Yes, there are many Christians in South Korea. It seemed that many Koreans who were disillusioned with Confucianism, turned to Christianity instead.
I remember reading about it but don't remember the details.
