Note: This thread does NOT promote the action or consideration of suicide. Many may remember the story of Terry Shaivo ( which I may have spelled wrong, but who cares?), she was a woman who was rendered a vegetable and many were fighting to take her off life support while others wanted to leave her on. You may be wondering what the point of this is, many people who were claiming that the vegetable should be kept alive claimed that to decide when she died was to play God and that all life is precious. I raise these points ( regardless of what anyone posts, I don't care, this is a soap box, not a panel of discussion, I am ranting ). 1. Playing God does not define a Frankenstein like event, if you are playing God by removing her from life support, aren't you in turn doing the same by keeping her alive? By all account, the vegetable would have died on it's own but instead doctors hooked her up to a machine, Playing God by deciding when she lives, in turn, isn't all medicine playing God? If you take any form of treatment to prolong your life and improve your health you're playing God by deciding when you live, but that is not up to the individual, it is up to God. 2. Is it living? No. It is selfish, it is the 7 fundamentals of humanity, you call them the 7 sins, Gluttony, Pride, Envy, Sloth, Lust, Greed and Wrath; it is out of these seven that someone subjects their "loved one" to such a hellish existence of vegetation where in, all the body can do is lay and process fecal matter and urine into nice, tidy bags. Humans are not but parasitic beings fueled by the 7 fundamentals. It is the 7 that is the cause of the destruction, disease and ruin that has plagued this world. It is the 7 that justifies all human action and thought, including, Religion, Murder, Genocide, Business and Politics. Denial is admittance, to deny this truth is to admit Pride.
