But the question is: does someone have a right to make such a decision nonetheless?

That gets in to a very dicey area.... many things come into play, for example the mental state of the individual in question. I don't see it ever being a cut-and-dried issue in any event.

Very messy material, to say the least.

How do you figure? The FSM says nothing about suicide. Indeed, with morals so flimsy, how can one make a determination?

Many people that commit suicide are ill, mind you. For some, suicide == euthanasia (already dying and suffering). For many others, suicide is a symptom of mental illness (clinical depression, severe anxiety disorders, etc). So in other words, while I don't have any percentages for yinz - suffice to say that in many cases suicide is part of a bigger problem. Knowing the FSM to be the most tolerant of all deities, I think that any person who committed suicide under these circumstances would be cared for by the FSM upon death.

I think the reason the FSM didn't send replacements to the tablets that Mosey dropped was that with flimsy moral standards he wouldn't have to bother weighing in on suicide and other non-pasta related occurances

I don't think that the Flying Spaghetti Monster takes a stance on one's very personal affairs that way.

Wow, tough love from a guy who can't spell "you're". It's nice that we see so much understanding and compassion around here.

Oi! Be nice to everyone in these forums! Capellini distributes "corrections" as necessary.

And some of us (me) will also make fun of you so bad you'll start to cry.

People have walked out of conversations with MP lacking all their skin, his wit is so scathing.

That's rather presumptive. You think one should not kill oneself in any circumstances? (Think about a terminally-diseased, retired man who is constantly in pain before answering.)

I assert, the FSM doesn't give a flip about suicide.
