    In your honest opinion, do you believe suicide to be a cowardly act?

    It can be, but it's also rather arrogant of others to assume it to be without knowing the circumstances.

    True. Why don't we make different situations? For example, if someone was surrounded by enemies would suicide be cowardly?

    On one hand, he can be preventing enemies from interrogating and getting evidence from him. On the other hand however (should one look at it this way), by committing suicide, he did not fight for his cause by trying to defeat the enemy.

    Nope. It is what it is and it's none of your business unless you're the one doing it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I imagine it has to take a lot of guts to take your own life. Whether it's right or wrong, it's certainly not cowardly.

    It really depends on why you commit suicide. I'm going to speak generally here but please note that this doesn't necessarily apply to EVERYONE. There are always exceptions.

    If its due to some chemical imbalance in the brain or always in extreme pain or due to a disease/virus that is 100% going to kill you then most definitely not. If its because you think that the world is out to get you and because nothing ever goes your way then yes it is.

    No. I think others who try to make the suffering and suicide of others about them are the ones who are cowardly, actually. Not to mention self-centered.

    I don't understand what good people think it will do to guilt the suicidal.

    My big brother killed himself...he was no coward...he just could not handle the world with the emotional abilities his brain provided him.

    I'd say no for the most part

    Re: Is suicide cowardly?

    If it is an otherwise healthy individual who has just given up? Yes it is a cowards way out. The problem is, is there a mental disorder there? In that case no.

    So it depends.
