Are religions lying to us when it comes to suicide?

Are religions lying to us when it comes to suicide? I feel like this world/existence isn’t worth living but the rulers don’t want their drones to kill themselves thus making it a sin.

    Often wonder the same thing. What if suicide is actually the opposite of what they tell us. The only way to achieve nirvana. It's always seemed very odd how strangers pretend to care about another stranger's suicide

      I have been wondering too. What if the forbidden fruit was the fruit of his loins and the snake was his dick. Reproduction damning us to be bound to earth. Rejecting flesh the only way to free your spirit. It's a dangerous subject though. Life is good, and you should all be happy with what you have but always strive for more.

      The only thing I can say about this is that I tried to but failed, obviously, and it made me feel like I was onto something. Like I stumbled upon it by trying to. I went inside this "waiting area". It didn't say waiting area obviously but that's how it felt in my head. Pitch black, there's nothing to see but you feel like , "ok now I wait for a bit." Next thing I know, I am opening my eyes and wake up in a hospital bed. The waiting room is real but I can't prove it obviously but take it from someone as secular as myself, I don't believe in heaven etc... but THAT was undeniably real.

      I'm sure there are some Buddhist sects that ascribe to this.

    I think people made it a sin because having someone close to you kill themselves is horrifying. I don't think it's necessarily evil. depends on the situation. are you being tortured and do you have no escape? are you going to save someone's life by not being able to divulge their position? ect ect.

    But most of the time, life is a sacred thing in of itself, especially if it is fully conscious of it's existence.

      Indeed it is. You feel like you failed them by not being a good friend.

    Depends. We don't know much about ancient norse religion, but apparently they considered suicide by hanging a honourable death

      Nordic here, the only honorable death is by combat or dying for a course. Suicide is neither of these.

      The aberhamic religions specifically but it seems like others I’m not too familiar seem to condone it.

        Why don't you just be honest and say you mean Christianity? It's not like any of you clowns know anything about it, nor of the other religions you lump together like a deliberate moron thinking you're so clever for such obvious dishonesty.

          Based of you to point this out.

          Often wonder the same thing. What if suicide is actually the opposite of what they tell us. The only way to achieve nirvana. It's always seemed very odd how strangers pretend to care about another stranger's suicide

          After attempting I was told that if I committed suicide I would be reincarnated as a woman in a conflict zone. Which sounds like the worst sort of hell to me. I think this is specific to which gods I have contracts with, and how not even trying to fulfill my end of the bargain would be seen as a breach of contract.

    Go with your instincts, the cosmos might be a complex mechanism but it's straight forward. People who want to control you want you to think that everything's twisted and hard to navigate, that there are spiritual legalities affecting every action you take and that you should listen to them if you want to be safe.

    Anyone who's not completely poisoned by this will notice there's something wrong. Simple logic will guide you better than any priest, nature or "god" isn't vindictive and twisted, the only traps out there are the ones people set up for their own.

    Suicide is great. I have studied old books that didn't even have a word for it. Just said it like "people hanging themselves from something".

    In the tribal days you owed your life to the people around you. Always. They could've just abandoned you at any point and you would be dead. Now a society that grew from,that to small urban centers (atleast in a way) based on similar social ties,without the soulless capitalism we live in today,where you were helped by many,your life was a way for your bloodline to survive in the future you betrayed everything by killing yourself.
    And thus it is Natural how suicide was termed a sin.

    And today it is that natural to think suicide is the way out. Objectively it doesn't seem wrong but within the greater context it does create varied concepts for judging it.
