Theology of Suicide: Is is forbidden by the Divine, or a misconception?
ive read that theologians (St. Augustine and Aquinas) thought of suicide as against God's will basing, one, due to it's absence in nature, but there has been several cases to humans, and even lower forms of animals of suicide thus casting doubt that it is not a natural inclination. would it change their view had they been aware of the statistics, esp. back in the days when holy scriptures were written? Is it a misconception that it is an immoral and an unnatural act?
