    A Golbal Perspective in the Epdemiology of Suicide

    see this figure to know how Islam is Great !!!!!!!!




    As you see the highest rates are in Atheist althogh they think that life without any religion will be better so why did they commit suicide?????

    That is really funny

    to make sure here is the link of the study:

    And here is another study
    http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/...ct/161/12/2303


    Everything around you tell you that Islam is the truth please try to discover the truth. just give yourself a try you have nothing to lose.

    Atheist don't choose to be atheist because they think life will be better without religion, many just don't believe o.O.

    I don't see how this shows Islam is better either lol. It is just a matter of moral objection to suicide, if a person is not opposed to suicide they are more likely to commit it.

    So I should become Muslim because I'll be less likely to commit suicide? And what if I don't want to commit suicide? Just more of the same…. Give it a rest man.

    Ah, it's this time of year again

    Why is atheism counted in these studies? Atheism isn't a religion

    And also, I have significant doubts about these statistic. Atheism being highest in suicide rates? Yeah, right.

    To quote the source given:

    According to the prevailing religion in countries? What kind of a bogus way is this to represent the statistics? Given that Japan is mostly an atheist country with high suicide rate, if you search for the cause for the suicides you're most likely going to find out that they're religious (cults etc).

    It is clear that these statistics are not to be trusted. I would call these manipulated statistic at best.

    Their figures are based completely on those submitted by the member states of the UN to the WHO, they even say in the paper that the numbers could be higher and could be misleading. It is very easy to understand how in a theocracy people would cover up suicide much more readily than in a liberal democracy. Moreover, suicide rates correlate with living on islands and with higher standard of living (also from their report). The difference with relation to religion is solely based on the fact that religious people are less likely to commit suicide because they think it is wrong, and the figures from the Middle East are more than likely not representative.

    i'd say the graph you show is pretty meaningless, seeing that China is counted as an atheist country, and since their numbers will swamp most other countries, this doesn't say anything at all about western european suicides (which are actually more likely to be classified as christian)

    so overall, the statistics may not be fake, but they're pretty meaningless
    also the authors raise 2 possible objections in their first few paragraphs :
    1. Whenever figures on suicide are presented or discussed there is always the question of their reliability
    2. Another question that is frequently raised refers to the comparability of data across countries
    without really putting the doubts over reliability to bed

    finally, how do you tie this study on suicide rates in with the title of this thread that islam is truth ? there's a non-sequitur if ever i saw one

    Although some (minor) health effects have been found on religion, there remain methodological objections that might demonstrate no real effect exists.

    What is most salient is that many of the effects attributed to religion seem to be more due to the 'religious community,' and the ability to seek counsel with a priest than the real religiosity - the effect of the religion itself.

    Religiosity itself is a rather bad predictor, as a far better correlate with minor health benefits are certain personality traits (like Eysenk's neuroticism and psychoticism). Others suggest that it is the organisations of one's personality, and the role that religion plays a role in this predicts these health benefits.

    What is clear, however, is that the health beneficts do not exist for all religious practitioners, only a specific group and that the other part of the group is generally worse off than non-believers.

    In the mean while, the therapeutic effect of new religions that is sometimes reported does exist in the data, but is also related to personality. It seems specific religions (like that of Krisha's) are selective to certain traits.

    As for these benefits themselves - there is no reason to believe that they are 'best' amongst any one religion and those figures are highly suspect.

    If you think for a moment Muslims are going to reveal the truth about their suicides, you're gravely mistaken.

    So some crock took different years for each religion and pasted them together to form some sort of graph to make the muslim religion look good and you take it as it meaning muslim beliefs are true and every other relgion is false?

    Are agnostics also included in the athiest category? Why not take the all statistics from one year rather than spacing the years out by 10 or 15? I find it absolutely hillarious that anyone would find this study truthful in any sense of the word.

    Putting aside the question of whether these statistics are reliable, one of the things that I notice right away, is that the statistics suggest that men "need" religion far more than do women, because it is only the figures for men that suggest that atheists are far more likely to commit suicide.

    That is indeed a good point and this suggest that the differences noticed here probably vanish when just comparing the statistics for different relgions within a particular society which of course means that cause for these differences (if they are real) are more likely to be found in the social and cultural differences between countries.

    On the other hand, I do think I would investigate to see if there is a reason why friends and family in a Islamic country might pretend that a suicide is just an accident.

    But if you look at the paper you will find that Japan is counted as Buddhist. Which of course explains why the Buddhist figures are so much higher than you would otherwise expect.

    Sure why not? Clearly there is a correlation between stress and suicide, but don't you think that the stress of facing the cold hard facts of reality is going to take its toll? LOL We religious have our fantasies and delusions to gives us some reason to feel good and happy even when life sucks, don't you think? Hee hee.

    Hmmmm.... Perhaps so but if it is not simply the prohibition against suicide as the paper suggests, then perhaps there is a stress related health benefit to praying five times a day.

    On the other hand, we can also note that certain types of lobotomies would also be effective in preventing suicide. So where do we sign up?

    The topic is misleading. I suggest that it should be

    So you are trying to make the effort of these big well known Psychologists useless although they were trying to give the facts and only facts. I don't know how will be thier response but I think they have the right to bring all members who swear them here to the court.

    For myself in Egypt it is very rare when I see a suicide in journals or in the news. you can say almost 2 cases a year as I remember.

    Now isn't that peculiar. I live in the United States and I don't ever recall seeing a suicide in journals or in the news. Do you think maybe this means that the statistics are wrong?

    Yeah, let's just ignore misrepresentation, faulty facts and the like. Ignorance is bliss, right?

    Discussion is harmless. Maybe we're wasting time, maybe not. However, it's important to point out flaws and to recognize those flaws. In a way, we're all working together.

    Profahmfaw, your argument seems to be that the lower the suicide rates, the higher the happiness of people in a country. So Islam makes people happy and is therefore 'true'?

    There's an alternative explanation as well: most religions frown upon suicide or even threaten with hell and damnation if someone commits suicide. This may frighten people to abstain from suicide, while leaving them as unhappy as they were.

    So let's look at happiness more directly. Ofcourse it's hard to measure (the word may have different meanings to different people), but it's probably not a worse indicator than the suicide rate.

    This map is the result of over 100 different studies around the world, which questioned 80,000 people worldwide, again those numbers don't have to say much (if you ask 80,000 people an unclear question then even a massive poll will give a biased result) but it's not just one person's opinion :wink:

    The Islamic world has both very high and very low scores, suggesting that the common denominator (Islam) doesn't explain the level of happiness. And some of the most strongly atheist countries in the world (the Skandinavian countries, the Netherlands) have some of the highest scores (they're all in the top 19, that's the 10% highest scores of the world).

    No your not working together your bashing each others beliefs. Not once have I ever seen compromise on this forum. Ignorance is bliss. I've tried to get other people like you to understand my point of view and you never listen, as a result what makes you think people are going to listen to you?

    Chaotic, I'm sorry but your post is offtopic here. Ofcourse it's good to realize that there's more in life than fighting eachother's ideas, but you can't say that in every thread. If people want to argue about it then let them argue.

    My dear Friend maybe you are right of course there are some people who live hard times but actually they do not fear from just the punishment but also all muslims believe that this life is not important because the other life is the most important for us so they face it strongly. Muslim here thanks Allah even if he lost all his family, all his money and even his health.

    We can't deny that Islam conserved the lives of muslims on the other hand look to the people who will vanish soon from the earth because they do not respect marriage. Others prefer to be a gay or lesbian.

    That is funny you are destorying yourselves.

    There's an alternative explanation as well: most religions frown upon suicide or even threaten with hell and damnation if someone commits suicide. This may frighten people to abstain from suicide, while leaving them as unhappy as they were.

    So let's look at happiness more directly. Ofcourse it's hard to measure (the word may have different meanings to different people), but it's probably not a worse indicator than the suicide rate.

    This map is the result of over 100 different studies around the world, which questioned 80,000 people worldwide, again those numbers don't have to say much (if you ask 80,000 people an unclear question then even a massive poll will give a biased result) but it's not just one person's opinion :wink:

    The Islamic world has both very high and very low scores, suggesting that the common denominator (Islam) doesn't explain the level of happiness. And some of the most strongly atheist countries in the world (the Skandinavian countries, the Netherlands) have some of the highest scores (they're all in the top 19, that's the 10% highest scores of the world).

    My dear Friend maybe you are right of course there are some people who live hard times but actually they do not fear from just the punishment but also all muslims believe that this life is not important because the other life is the most important for us so they face it strongly. Muslim here thanks Allah even if he lost all his family, all his money and even his health.

    We can't deny that Islam conserved the lives of muslims on the other hand look to the people who will vanish soon from the earth because they do not respect marriage. Others prefer to be a gay or lesbian.

    That is funny you are destorying yourselves.
    Should I then interpret your argument as "a religion is 'the truth' if it conserves the people"? Islam seems to keep the suicide rate low and the birth rate high, so in that sense it keeps population numbers up or 'conserves the people'. But what I don't understand is how this makes Islam 'truth'.

    Perhaps we have a different priority or goal. Most Westerners would agree that a system or ideology that causes the highest percentage of people to be happy is 'right' or 'something to aim for'. The emphasis is not on the quantity of the population (high population growth), but the quality (high scores on happiness indicators, high per capita GDP instead of high total GDP). If total GDP rises and population stagnates or declines then that's great news, it means that people are becoming more wealthy.

    A question: if you had to chose from these 2 options, which would be more 'right' or 'a better goal'?
    1: A mother gets 10 children, each live in poverty
    2: A mother gets 1 child who lives in great wealth

    The population is too Important for any civilization if the goverments knew how to make the best use of it look at China for example which is 1.3 Miliar. The population considers the fuel of progress.

    I know that there are many muslim states still developing but there are many reasons for that the most important reason that they took indepdence almost 50 years ago from this stupid English and french occupation after world war one. but know that will not last forever because the history tell us that all nations sometimes low sometimes high in progress so we have the next turn man :-D because your turn is finsished.


    Islam is not an Idiology man it is a religion. Not like all other religions it is like the moon light in the darkness. Islam protect us and teach us how to be obliged, how to be loyal to your parents, how to treat all people well, how to be open minded and think about this universe, how to be great, how to lead all nations with mercy and love. I know that many muslims do not apply that percisly but the new generations will be better than us.


    Did you hear about Utopia? Islam teach us how to make it in simple easy steps in this life and in the other life after death

    That's the typical rhetoric all religions spout. Yet, when the belief in the supernatural is removed, the bottom line is that Abrahamism is about tribalism, oppression and misogyny. It is the militaristic ideology of Islam that makes it unaccountable and justifiable to its users as it attempts to conquer the world.

    The sugar-coated picture of Islam you would paint is merely a facade regurgitated from propaganda.

    I know that many muslims do not apply that percisly but the new generations will be better than us.
    Sorry pal, you've had 14 centuries to get it right. Times up.

    As you see the highest rates are in Atheist althogh they think that life without any religion will be better so why did they commit suicide?????

    That is really funny

    to make sure here is the link of the study:

    And here is another study
    http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/...ct/161/12/2303


    Everything around you tell you that Islam is the truth please try to discover the truth. just give yourself a try you have nothing to lose.
    I am a late comer here to give my opinion on this issue.

    My GOD is Nature as my greatest teacher.
    In Nature, there are NO suicides.
    They also live under the most harshest of conditions.

    In Islam, their warriors are the most cowardly of all since they wear no uniforms and blend in with the population to remain as anonymous as possible.
    Also, since most get their wealth from hell down below, they generally do not have to worry about how they will survive.

    Also, that religion is a copy of Judaism. What is the rate for that religion?
    And did those rates for Islam include all those 'people bombs'?

    In Islamic countries those people do not vanish because they disrespect marriage. It's becaused they're stoned to death, drowned, decapitated and hanged for even minor offenses.

    we should all consider. Try to understand mother #1, then #2. This I think is the crucial divide between developed and developing nations. How can any human being despise either set of values?

    The first is selfish and irresponsible and increases suffering in the world.

    In a perfect world population growth wouldn't be out of control.

    With some effort I can have some understanding for mother 1, but I wouldn't approve of her choice. As an individual choice it may not seem immoral, but if an entire people makes this choice then the total result is overpopulation and great poverty (and land degradation, water scarcity, etc a downward spiral of poverty).
    But I do find it hard to tell the 10th child "society would be better off if you weren't born". We all want a chance to live. Maybe that's what the mother is thinking: "if I have only 1 child then a lot of children who could've been born miss out on their chance to live".

    My point with the question is that I don't understad how a religion that encourages option 1 is necessarily good or true. Sure it 'conserves' the population number, but why is that 'good' by itself?

    Belief in a Creator is great, but following religion is blind, Islam or not religion followers tend to be more close minded.

    Have they done any studies on the success rate in converting people to religion in SCIENTIFIC forums? Please if you wish to find new followers, focus your energies on the ignorant and naive. I suggest any commercial tv forum, they are pretty much all brain dead and you are bound to convert a lot more.

    This is such bullshit!

    First of all you give us some very crappy exampels of people who converted to islam, they are all with african origins, offcourse(well not offcourse, but its very likely) they will want some day to get get back in touch with their roots.

    Secondly, why the f*ck do you think that we care that some people converted to islam?! do you think that in our mind we say "So many important people converted to islam, well if it`s so then give me a sec to ditch all my faiths and convert to islam cos a bunch of jackasses that some guy on a scientific forum shown me ACTUALLY converted to islam, wow!"

    Man... you are trying to sell here here a religion that has been going on for thousands of years, many many many people died for it and because of it like its frickin` tapperware! jeez!

    Note that I dont hate any islamic people, but currently worldwidely there are many major groups of jackass islamic people going from buss to buss exploding to pieces cos of some stupid belief of theirs that ALL who are not islamic must die.
    I`m sorry my friend but thats not what religion is about.

    I sincerely sugges that you go back and re-read(or read for the first time...? ) the koran and learn its main principals. Then you may continue if you want your preaching around here(which i hardly resent) and people will continue telling you how wrong you are...
    Peaple nowadays are not so stupid, you can live with it or continue stumbling... its all up to you.

    Cheers,
    tony

    Secondly, why the f*ck do you think that we care that some people converted to islam?! do you think that in our mind we say "So many important people converted to islam, well if it`s so then give me a sec to ditch all my faiths and convert to islam cos a bunch of jackasses that some guy on a scientific forum shown me ACTUALLY converted to islam, wow!"

    Man... you are trying to sell here here a religion that has been going on for thousands of years, many many many people died for it and because of it like its frickin` tapperware! jeez!

    Note that I dont hate any islamic people, but currently worldwidely there are many major groups of jackass islamic people going from buss to buss exploding to pieces cos of some stupid belief of theirs that ALL who are not islamic must die.
    I`m sorry my friend but thats not what religion is about.

    I sincerely sugges that you go back and re-read(or read for the first time...? ) the koran and learn its main principals. Then you may continue if you want your preaching around here(which i hardly resent) and people will continue telling you how wrong you are...
    Peaple nowadays are not so stupid, you can live with it or continue stumbling... its all up to you.

    Cheers,
    tony
    let me ask you a simple questions:

    How did you know about Islam?

    did you read any islamic book before?

    you are just listening to this brainwashing from media and just shout without thinking.

    As I said it is your choice and Islam will not be better with someone like you.


    about the video from our fellow it is really funny with this stupid hard rock music. The secertary of thje state said: Islam is the most widely spread religion in the world and here is a guy who does not have any proof say another thing.

    Oh my God you say that Roza is Liar HAAAAAAAA the secretary of the state is liar. I do not know what will the FBI do to this site when they know that.

    do you mean that a research from WHO (by famous scientists) is useless and some talkings from ordinary people (Most of them did not have master degree at least) is the RIGHT?

    You hardly need a brain to understand that putting up suicide rates according to the prevailing religion in countries is a bogus way of representing statistics.


    EDIT:
    The only reason you support the statistics is because you like it. Your religion "looks good" there for you, and that's all you need to be convinced it's reliable.

    Well, firstly, that report that uve shown at your 1st post is not proven, the only validation of its truthfulness is by your word, and a word of an islamic preacher is not to be taken without proper examination, thats what history has thought us.

    Secondly; Suicide rates have absolutely NO relation to any religion/group/country whatsoever!
    It`s pure randomness, if suicide rates tells you anything is the emo count of that specific group.
    And people who think that joining a religion will prevent them from misery are stupid ******* ****** dumbasses to think so.

    The "my religion is right, yours is wrong" paradox is becomming more and more unrellevent as time passes.
    Why try to change a person beliefs if he already has a belief?!
    Always remember that you are unique, just like everyone else :-D

    peace,
    tony

    lol, ok then, lets say that america is evil n` shyt.
    what makes you think that the all powerful america will loose to a bunch of ignorent people such as yourself?
    what, god? you think allah will help you??
    will he give you tactical nukes? will he makes your fighters invincibels?
    will he make the enemy weak? what?! what?!!!
    islamic allah and the biblic god are the same, dont argue with it cos there is nothing to argoue about.
    Now why would you think that allah(god) will help the islamic people(his servants) and turn against his other belives which are the christian/jewish people, eh?
    I mean, just the idea of god making a choice will deny him of his divinity.

    Besides... america`s like has chuck norris... and you know what they say... no?
    Well, once chuck norris shot down a nazi flighter by just pointing a finger at it and yelling "BANG!"

    Peace,
    tony

    Please don't look to muslims and what they doing but look to ISLAM.
    Both statements make perfect sense and demonstrate the true nature of your religion. Succinct and to the point.

    profahmfaw, could you please tell me about Islam? And sort of sum it up because I am very curious about it. I know about Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity, but I've never studied or acknowledged the religious concepts of Islam. I would ver much to learn of it, mainly because there are a lot of similarities between the Qu'ran and The Old Testament. I believe Allah and God, are the same entity.

    Muslims more numerous than Catholics
    So this means that there's one group with delusion X that outnumbers the group with delusion Y. SWEEET!

    Oh....and yes, I read the Q'ran and it made me puke more violently than the Bible. I used both to light the first bonfire in my garden this year. So at least they where good for something.

    You are comparing one branch of christiantiy to an entire religion. If you want to play that sort of game, there are more Hindus than there are Shiites. But who cares? The number of people who believe something has nothing to do with whether or not it is true.

    A lot of the Bible is recognized as a holy inspired text by Muslims, except they consider Jesus to be a prophet like Moses and Abraham. This is a religion that came 600 years after Christianity.

    Edit: Hmm I've been to all sorts of Christian churches, been to synagogue a few times, been to a Buddhist pegoda to see some relics on tour, and been inside a Sihk temple, it annoys me a little that I can't get into a Mosque to see what it's all about, and even if I did I suspect it would all be in arabic.

    Why is there so little suicide among religious persons and much more among atheists?



    Easy, for the same reason theres apparently no homosexuals in Iran.

    (Big taboo, people lie, stats are worthless)

    If I had a dollar for every statistic study with bogus results I'd be rich
    (and this also applies to would be serious economic stats throw around in the media)

    In my region over 50 years ago, suicide was taboo, religious people said it was a sin and familes were ashamed so I would not be surprised there were hardly any suicide at all back then since people probably had various 'accidents' instead.

    I talked to a muslim woman that now lives in the west, Im talking about culture here not religion(people often mix the two), she said that in her country of origin it "appeared" that there was no abuse of women/rape/ etc, while in the west it "appeared" this was a big problem(front page news etc), but she also said that "in fact" these problems existed back in her country but that it was such a big taboo that few(if any) women dared denounce her agressor or tell anyone she had been raped and that it was a taboo subject.
