It may be understandable that religions should posit the notion that you'd be better off dead... better off in a land of milk and honey and virgins and peace and joy and heaven and hell and God and ... all you have to do is drop dead. Vast belief systems are premised and promoted in this way.
But what is understandable is not necessarily what is peaceful. Premising a belief system on what is believed merely assures more doubt ... and doubt is seldom peaceful. So a drop-dead framework, although it may assure and endless supply of adherents, cannot be called drop-dead beautiful, drop-dead joyful, drop-dead peaceful.
I don't intend to rain on anyone's parade here. When belief is as good as it gets, then belief is as good as it gets. But I do think the human mind would be happier with a little more experience and a little less belief.... and I don't mean that anyone should go out and shoot himself in the head.
Belief ... check out the doubt it inspires.
Experience ... check out the story it tells.
Aside from anything else, it'll probably save you some money.
