I agree that atheists have high suicidal rates, and it's not even about me agreeing or not, it's statistics, and statistics speak truth.
But if you think this means that their belief is wrong, then continue living in your beautiful lie.
Atheists do commit suicide because they thought about the meaning of life a lot, to come to the conclusion that there isn't a meaning.
I'm an atheist, I thought countless hours about our existence. I couldn't come to something meaningful. On the contrary, you have a beautiful reason not to suicide. Life for you is some of deity's works (trademark), you shouldn't kill yourself because gawd will be angry at you and stuff. Here's my point of view, you don't have a god to love you. You might be the type of person that doesn't wanna stay with his family, and if you have a spouse to care for you, then if die they might still have feelings for you but they'll start to love someone else. I see the human population just like a bacteria population but with brains, no one really gives two shits if you die. Also I can't see how much difference I'm going to make to this world. This is how many atheists think. Other atheists might acknowledge this but wouldn't care much, like party people and people who have reasons to live for, i.e. challenges etc. And then you dare call atheists eccentric selfish shits? The truth isn't always gonna draw a smile on your face. I believe most atheists who suicide are deep into this type of philosophical thoughts, I don't hide that I have suicidal thoughts sometimes (but I'll never do that, don't get police on my tail now Tongue). I believe you get my idea. Reply for any unclarities/debate. But don't debate like a child, it's childish and eccentric (karma) to believe happiness accompanies truth. Excuse my weak vocabulary, English isn't my native language.

Oh, hi, hbl. Ready for another banhammer? Laughat

I don't believe sharshibil is hbl. He/she probably followed google, which found the post.

Hbl quoted babble verses spammed us with his asinine religious posts.

I don't believe there has ever been a conclusive study that has stated that atheists have a higher suicide rate than anyone else.

If they do return and start posting babble verses I'll reconsider.

I'm 97% certain he/she isn't based on the post and relevant ip addresses and compared to hbl's other posts and ip...many of them at least -- but included the first post. I never saw anywhere hbl professed to be an atheist. So there's that. Drinking Beverage

If you're going to appeal to statistical truths it's probably better to give the actual citations while you're at it.

From a reverend in 1894? Seems kinda outdated and biased.

Yo there, first things first, fix the reply system for posts, things get mixed up and I'm not even sure if you'll get what i'm writing now. Next things next, i don't know what's that hbl shit but i ain't got none to do with that. and for the sources of statistics, although this is a religious site, it does site some references: http://www.conservapedia.com/Atheism_and_suicide

and you said hbl used some christian verses, i told you i'm an atheist. and the one who said google got me here, you're right, procrastinating when exams

RE: Why Do Atheists Have the Highest Suicide Rates?
The external links cited in that article suspiciously contains references for only one side of the argument.

And the 2004 study's sample consists of 371 DEPRESSED inpatients. I think this is an important point to note because then you can't generalize this to the entire atheist demographic, unless you have further proof that all atheists are depressed.
