Depends where that man is...if he's behind you (on solid ground), take his hand. If he's walking out off the edge of the cliff...get back on your meds.

Grasping at straws, more like.

Reaching out for the unreal hand of an unreal man is delusional. I would rather be dead than mad - reaching out for an unreal hand.
Or perhaps you're that sort of individual who believes that the rape and murder of an 11 year old is a gift from god?

If I am on the edge of a cliff, delirious and hallucinating, and I see a man walk by and offer his hand, would it not be suicide to refuse to take it?
Only if the man is on the ground behind you...

Ah, a new version of Pascal's wager.
Nope, still a waste of your life.

Why grab an imaginary hand? Sounds like sure death to me.

"delirious and hallucinating"
Yeah, that part I get

Do you play the "Pascal's wager drinking game" here on FSTDT?
It's a lot of fun, but you get drunk really, really quickly...

Off course, in "reality" there's a hundred different men offering their hands to you. Pick one now, and if it's the wrong one you fall down towards Jagged-Rock Country.

Wouldnt it be suicide to be delirious on the edge of a cliff. Just because all your friends are doing it...
Besides, who would want eternal life anyway, all it would make you is insane. More insane.

Taking up religion too zealously IS suicide.
We are dying from the moment of our conception, and taking in an invisible non-entity is not going to make any difference.
In my 72 year life, I've been clinically dead TWICE and been an atheist ever since.
There ain't nothing there.

No, it's suicide when you try to take that imaginary hand, fall right through it, and plummet to your death on the rocks thirty stories below.

i don't need an eternal life in heaven, and i don't expect one. i have all the life i need on earth.
i wont ever go back to thinking life on earth is a "test."
this could be all i get, so i'm damn well going to enjoy it, and grasping at illusions sure as hell isn't going to make me happy.
