Suicide

Is suicide morally wrong? Or is it okay?

David Hume, writing in 1755 (not published until 1777, the year after his death), thought suicide was fine. Firstly he thought, cosmically, human life has no inherent significance:
>But the life of a man is of no greater importance to the universe than that of an oyster.
He also thought that the idea that you should stick around just to serve others, i.e. just to work for somebody, just to raise taxes, was bollocks:
>Why then should I prolong a miserable existence because of some frivolous advantage which the public may perhaps receive from me?

Was he right?

Does anyone understand the evolution and general theology of Indo-European religion? Where does Deus Pater step out of the picture and when do the trinities come in? How important were they?

Was there a way Papen and friends could have conceivably "boxed in" Hitler? Or was it a stupid strategy from start?

Honestly, I don't see what the fuss is all about. Jews are awsome!

Is there any logical argument against masturbation? A lot of cultures and religions are against it seemingly for no reason.
