What does Krishna mean by the beginning of creation? According to the Puranas (Vedic histories), there have been innumerable creations in the course of cyclical time. The basic unit of Vedic cyclical time is the day of Brahma, which lasts 4.32 billion years. The day of Brahma (also called a kalpa) is followed by a night of Brahma, also lasting 4.32 billion years. The cycle of days and nights of Brahma goes on for Brahma's lifetime of one hundred years (36,000 nights), equivalent to 311.04 trillion of our human years. During the day of Brahma, life, including human life, is manifest. During the night of Brahma, life is not manifest.

Its sucks for sure, no doubt. But lets be honest. Its survival of the fittest. With her mentality those of us that are responsible would be paying for her every bill for the rest of her life. Hate to say it, but with people like her gone, the world is ever so slightly a better place.
Your all thinking it.

Suicide is the ultimate expression of self-hate.
I wonder how long it will be before we learn that she was on Prozac or some other "anti-depressant".
I agree that the world is better off for this to be eliminated from the gene pool.
She is another candidate for the Darwin Award.

I have no sympathy for this girl. She seemed to not use any critical thinking, you can't just believe everything you read about these things, you should take everything with a pinch of salt. If you thought the world was going to end, and was so certain that you would hang yourself, then why would you kill yourself anyway? Why not just die when the world ends? At least then there is a chance that you would survive because it's not true (personaly, im not a 2012 believer).
No doubt people will jump on the bandwagon and blame people here and blame people there, but the fact is that there if no one to blame, it is her fault, no one elses. I may sound like a horrid person, or someone lacking in compasion, but in all seriousness, she did it, and it was no one elses fault.

I don't your a horrid person, but here is obviously other contributing factors. People in their right minds don't just kill themselves because they get scared. I definitely do not agree with the people that will defend her by blaming her parents, the internet, or conspiracy theorists. This is her fault and her responsibility as is every suicide.edit on 18-5-2012 by headorheart because: (no reason given)

I warned you all this was going to happen. 2012ers run around treating this whole thing like a game. They need to start realizing that their words do have an impact on the world. While it is most likely true that this girl had other problems going on the fact that 2012 theories pushed her over the edge should give everyone on here pause. To all the people that have been pushing doomsday theories I hope you feel some guilt over this tragedy you helped contribute to. Hopefully that this is the wake up call you need to realize this is not a game and that what is said on here can indeed have an effect on the real world.
R.I.P. Isabel, sadly you won't be the last casualty

A teenager hanged herself after becoming convinced the world would end in 2012 after researching doomsday scenarios on the internet, an inquest heard. Schoolgirl Isabel Taylor, 16, turned to Buddhism after becoming fed up with the 'complications and injustice' of the modern world. But while searching for answers she began researching doomsday scenarios - becoming convinced a nuclear reactor meltdown would end civilisation in the coming months
'She read articles on all different types of things which could make the world end, she read about 15 to 20 articles over the course of 2011 with her best friend. 'The most recent one she read was on sun spots and how if they went wrong it could cause a nuclear reaction.' Increasing numbers of websites devoted to 2012 doomsday scenarios have sprung up online, centred on claims the Mayans believed this is the year the world will end. In France a tiny village named Bugarach has seen visits from doomsday devotees, claiming it will survive any apocalypse event

I thought this was worth bringing to attention the dangers of taking these theories to the extreme.
I have been guilty of going online and researching these things and have even had a very strong urge or even addiction to the doom on the net.
Fact is that it does indeed affect your real offline world.. I found myself getting anxious, moody and thinking what the point of it all was, then finding a way to feed more doom into my life, and still come here every day to get my news, but I learnt after doing my own research, not to take these things too seriously..
RIP Isabel... Your heart was too beautiful for this world..
I did notice in the comments section of the article the way that conspiracy theorists was given the blame for this girls death.. And the comments were quite vehement...
Truth is no conspiracy theorist put the rope around this girls neck.. She did it herself and her family.. But still, a shame... She may even have had an account here..edit on 18-5-2012 by EvanB because: (no reason given)

sucks that she killed herself, but at least she has the answers she's been searching for, for in death no knowledge is kept secret, just sucks that it won't do her no good in that big lake of fire she's frolicking in now :/
