Should we allow people to overdose if they want to die?
Many close to Lamar Odom knew he was depressed and possibly want to die. He almost died over dosing of drugs and alcohol . Should we allow people to end their own lives?

How do atheists fight depression?This is a legitimate question. I'm an atheist and I find that when I start to think about death and the sheer vastness of the universe, I get overwhelmed. The birth and death of the earth (and the human race) is so quick and insignificant in the grand scheme of...
