well, I was talking to my friend today and I guess I was talking him out of suicide and he came up with some pretty interesting and debateable points that made me think a little. ************ (3:31:15 AM) : but the problem isn't depression, or hating my life, or any of that shit, it's just that I don't see much, if any point in it. I really don't believe in a god, therefore, when life gets snuffed out, the person gets snuffed out, all their memories, their entireity is erased. And eventually, everyone will probably die, and everybody's memory of that person dies, and then there remains no point for that person ever existing, and it doesn't matter if there was, because that person can't appreciate it because he doesn't exist as anything more than compost and decaying organic matter" And that really got me thinking about people's reasonings behind suicide. I'm not saying I'm going to become suicidal or anything, I just was wondering what thoughts were directed to something like this and I certainly don't encourage suicide, but it really did get me thinking. But if his theory is true, it might be nice for the person to atleast have some memory of you rather than nothing at all, because if that's true then why is there birth to begin with? Why not just have nuclear hollocaust and not let anyone concieve at all?
