Some true answers:

1.Psicho-induction by religions.......mainly.....
2. Existencial disorientation and nobody to orient them....except the
religious...( or, to those who can afford..., the psychologists....)
(I'd mention the answer that a priest gave to me when I had, once, a serious
accident : I said innocently (when I was a believer): "Father, I have been
afraid to dieing...." and he answered: "What is the problem ??? The
christian, whe dies, ressurrects..." And I got home psychologically worse
than I was... Then I, with my surviving instinct not yet distroyed, began
to perceive the suicidal message of Jesus and the suicidal way followed by
some "saints" ... You got it, folks????
3. Reinforcing: The suicidal message of some religions that if you are
"good", if you die, will go to heaven...>> so....why not liking (and
sometimes wishing...) to die...????
