Today on Khan Academy I learned about India and of course that included Hinduism and Buddhism as well. I have been wondering if there is any other belief system more depressing.
Why I find it depressing? It is a religion, whose answer to all suffering is mass spiritual suicide. I get that living is tough and being yourself can be tough as well, but when you are told that your only salvation is to cease existing, then what is the point of even trying anything in the first place? Atheists are better off. They also believe that everything will become nothing, so they just do what they feel like doing and enjoy the moment. At least they have fun while their lives run towards the grave. On second thought, looking from the outside that is just as depressing.
I wish people realised that they do have an alternative.
