On the show Christian Today, Eric Hovind and Paul F. Taylor recently posed a question to atheists: Absent Christianity, why is suicide a bad thing?
The pair made the case that Christianity is what fostered the idea that suicide was wrong to begin with, citing everything from ancient Roman times to the Synod of 425 AD to prove their case. They seem to believe that all atheists embrace the idea that suicide is a legitimate, acceptable way to exit life, because our godlessness means we have no reason to value it.
