If you commit suicide that's nobody's fault but your own. Why not just wait for the world to end if that's what you believe. Stop trying to make people feel guilty for things that aren't there fault. That's is like me telling japan last year that an earthquake was coming. Should they commit suicide over it? Is it my fault if they do? Simply; no.
It's a different thing to posit the world ending and people taking that information into their own hands; and blankly telling someone to committ suicide.
I'm also curious as to whether being gullible is an inherited trait. Is it inherited or learned? I have no idea.

So, anyone that is bullied to the point to where they commit suicide.....that was entirely their fault then by your logic, right?
I mean, of course it was their fault. They should have just sucked it up and dealt with it, right?
It was in no way, shape or form the bullies fault at all, correct?

What about Peter of Sedona fame that plans what he calls a Leap of Faith. Unlike others he is going to jump to his death in a few days. You might say go for it, but someone has to clean up the tomato paste mess afterwards.
What about copycats? Will others follow suit thinking that Peter might not be in the right spot to save the universe from shutting down?
