Friends who are regulars of this site know the host has no problem with anyone who decides to quit this life on their own terms. I will go so far as to say that when a person who attempts suicide fails and is arrested, we are punishing them not for trying to kill themselves but for being clumsy while at it. I see no other justification for punishment in such a case other than the one already stated.
Readers are also aware that I have no belief in the immortality in the soul.
It is with this background that I share this article on suicide and immortality of the soul.
