Alt.Suicide.Holiday: Bus Stop to Hell

"Catch the Bus" To The Center of the Earth

On March 2, 2006, approximately two months after I began posting to (ASH) and alt.suicide.methods (ASM) usenet groups, I started the thread, "Catch the Bus--To The Center of the Earth" in both forums. This post addresses the flippant CTB [catch the bus] acronym that is bandied about with such frequency on the suicide forums that it qualifies as a trigger word. "Catch the bus," which is a euphemism for taking one's life, links the horrific act of suicide with a normal, commonplace activity of modern life.


Catch the Bus--To The Center of the Earth

A passenger who catches a bus is transported somewhere. Those who catch the Suicide Bus are transported to the center of the earth where the temperature exceeds 12,000 degrees Farenheit:

"The Birmingham News, April 10, 1987 had an article entitled "Earth's Center Hotter Than Sun's Surface, Scientists Say". The article stated that scientists have recently discovered, "THE EARTH'S INNER CORE HAS A TEMPERATURE OF OVER 12,000 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT!" [1]

Revelation 14:10 says,

 " . . . and he shall be tormented with fire and BRIMSTONE . . ." And Job 18 describes the " . . . PLACE of him that knoweth not God" (vs 21), in verse 15 as, " . . . BRIMSTONE shall be scattered upon his habitation." [2]

Do you know what brimstone is? It's sulfur. And do you know where sulfur or brimstone is found? INSIDE THIS EARTH! According to the book Volcanoes by Pierre Kohler (p. 43) when Mt. St Helens erupted in 1980 - 150,000 tons of sulfurous gas was ejected! Job is the oldest book in the Bible, written over 3,000 years ago, and yet Job knew what science wouldn't know for years - inside this earth is BRIMSTONE!" [3]

If the people who advocate suicide really believe that suicide is the step to unconscious nothingness, why do you use a catchphrase that indicates that suicide is really about GOING SOMEWHERE?


Commentary on The ASHers' and ASMers' responses

[note: The numbers in brackets below indicate the specific posts referenced in the thread, "Catch the Bus"--To the Center of the Earth]

While not all ASH and ASM posters have a satanic worldview, the insiders' responses indicate whom they serve.

Predictably, many responses included the mockery of the biblical doctrine of hell. Core ASHers [4] and ASMers[5] are committed to the agenda of convincing their readers that hell does not exist and suicide is a ticket to permanent pain relief.

One poster [who has deleted her post] remarked that the body would be destroyed before the trip was made to the center of the earth. I replied:

It is not one's physical body that travels to the center of the earth
(hell) after suicide. It is one's spiritual body (which can see, think, feel,
hear, smell, etc.) that makes the horrible trip.

Another poster [9] accused me of following Satan (this accusation has been repeated several times on ASH), another [13] made a filthy remark about another poster's mother, a poster [16] compared Christianity to Islam (the new world planners want people to place Christianity and Islam in the same category), another poster [17] asked how the word eternity came to be in the Hebrew Bible and then charged me with converting sexual sadism into religion.


One Poster Asked if Suicide is Obedience to God

One poster asked an on-topic question about the Bible.

> Then how do you explain "he who loves his life will lose it, and he
> who hates his life unto the death will find it."?????????
> Don't suicides "hate their lives." Are they not obeying the
> commandment of the very Lord you wish to preach? Jesus was a radical
> preacher, and his followers were and are likewise radical.

I did not answer at the time but recently sent the reply below to his email address.

No, killing yourself is not obeying the commandment of the very Lord whose gospel I have been proclaiming on ASH. Killing yourself is SATAN'S commandment, and he is the lord the core group of ASHers serve.

Part of "hating your own life" (that means giving up control of your life to God) is living to the glory of God even if you are not personally fulfilled by your life circumstances.

Those who commit suicide love themselves more than they love God because they take the control away from God, who created them, and take it upon themselves to choose how they will live and when and how they will die.

Christians must offer their bodies as living sacrifices unto God:

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Living the life that God gave you and expects you to use to glorify him, is your reasonable (not unreasonable) service to Him.

God (not man) is the one who has the authority to appoint a man to die:

Hbr 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this
the judgment:

Do not replace God's appointed time for your death with your own.
To do so is to be your own god and despise the God who gave you life.

Please do not "catch the bus" to the center of the earth where the fire and your suffering will never be quenched. Instead, be reconciled to God and live for him in this world and the next.
