Pascal’s Wager

Here’s something I was thinking about. It only works for people who believe there is more than this life though, and don’t know what’s on the other side like myself. I believe there is more than this world because I see so many coincidences sometimes that it seems to me something is happening behind the scenes. I’m sorry this doesn’t work for people who believe death is the ultimate end though.

It’s kind of like Pascal’s Wager, applied to suicide. If the next life is a terrible place even worse than this world, then you should stay here because it’s better. But if there is a better world than where we are, then it’s probably by design that we’re here. Why else would we have left it? We probably came here to learn and to experience. And by commiting suicide you are checking out early. There’s obviously something to be gained by sticking around. So when we finally do return to that better place, we made the best of our choice to come and be alive here, we suffered and we endured.

It’s the cool people that commit suicide because they don’t belong in this world. We see the way things should be. But it’s because of that that we should stay here. We are the ones who understand, and we are here for a reason, though we may not know why while we’re here.
