LIFE after DEATH

by JudgeMeNot

Hypothetically let’s just say that we know 100% that GODS aren’t real and we dont get punished for committing suicide.

My QUESTION is this: Would more people kill themselfs, without grief and guilt if they knew they wouldnt suffer for it later?

I think ALOT of people would. I mean Alot.

What do you think?

It’s hard to say. Many religious would have less guilt doing so so maybe rates would rise. On the flip side you would be certain there was no second chance as it were so people might be more reluctant to give up. IDK. I don’t believe there are gods or an afterlife.

Same same.

Never understood the idea that suicide is sinful, it’s just an absurd notion.

Anyway, when your life sucks enough for you to contemplate suicide, what are the odds that you still believe in God anyway?

The primary reason more people don’t commit suicide is that most available methods suck and involve suffering and/or uncertainty.

There was a movie not long ago that was about this exact hypothetical situation. I didn’t see the movie and can’t remember the name (if anyone knows, please chime in) but the trailer looked interesting. It’s proven that an afterlife exists, and suddenly everyone starts killing themselves.

I was actually really surprised at this. I’m driven to suicide by the opposite – the idea that death brings nothingness. The idea that death might end my existence completely.

If I learned that there was an afterlife then I would be less inclined to kill myself, or I might even stop thinking about suicide entirely. I don’t want a new life, or reincarnation, or even some silly existence sitting on a cloud playing a harp for eternity. Existence itself is pointless to me. So if I learned that this life is followed by another, I wouldn’t bother trying to die because it would accomplish nothing, except I’d lose all my stuff. I could go live in the forest and accomplish that. I want out completely.
