Suicide?

Postby Arbor on Fri Oct 20, 2006 10:19 pm

What does the FSM think of it? We do have all these flimsy moral standards...and it's really not all that bad.

I would say bad, but no doubt that comes from my own religion and not FSM'ism

Nope. While I belive in the view that ID should not be taught in school, I'm too entrenched in my Catholic religion to become a full fledged FSM'er ;)

More than bad it is stupid.
Why suicide when we have 11.500.000.000 kg of pasta in this world to eat here ?

I agree it's stupid. I'm not arguing with that. But people do it. I'm just wondering if they get a stripper factory and a beer volcano...

FSM heaven's gifts go to all people, no matter how they died. And I'd have to say stupid, in most cases. Of course, if one were to end up in a Shaivo-like situation, the answer is suicide (which is why everyone should have a living will).
I am anti-"txt talk." I support good grammar. I am part of the "Save the Vowels" movement. For your sanity and mind, type out your damn words.

Thank you

Doesn't the gospel say that you shouldn't harm yourself?

but then the question becomes which causes more harm, death by a bottle of pills or a slow death by cancer.

personally, suicide is all about context. was the people that jumped out of the world trade centers doind a bad thing? now certainly if you want to comit suicide, you should do it in such a way as you don't harm some one else in the proccess. but by yourself, i can't say much about somebody killing themselves without more info.

Where do you want to go ?
1) FSM : I'll go to East Africa, where all did begin millions of years ago
2) Christ : I'll go to Palestina, I have nostalgia of those places
3) Holy Spirit : I would like to go to Vatican, I have never been there

I'm indifferent on the case.
But I know that the FSM does not conduct me to commit suicide, but the christian "beliefs" work quite well to drive me to dispair.

The morality of suicide hinges upon the circumstances that bring about said suicide. There need be mitigating conditions that outweight the desire to live.

When suicide is permissible: cases of terminal disease, cases of impending death by other means, cases of hitting rock bottom and having no one for whom to provide.

When suicide is misguided and incorrect: cases of whiny, attention-whore teenagers; cases of needing to provide for others (which may be otherwise changed by organizing some way to provide for said others); etc.

But Pastafarianism doesn't advocate either. The flimsy moral standards more than take care of that.
[...] the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, should not be considered as subversive of the theory.

We will all enjoy the beer volcano and the stripper factory in the end.

There is however no need to rush there.

Suicide is almost always worst than whatever alternatives there are to it. There's no turning back from sucide and the aftermath on one's family is devestating.
