Please help me understand something I don't understand. What motivates suicide bombers to blow themselves up? Why do they do this?

I wrote the question. Sly Phy wrote a brilliant answer which I totally agree with.

If you tell a child a pretty sounding lie over and over, the child will eventually believe it without question and there is very little you can do to get him or her to think critically. This is why indoctrinating children into religion should be a crime that carries a custodial sentence - because the result is a world full of insanity. Not just suicide bombers but ANYONE religious bears responsibility for this. The bombers are enabled by a network of extremists who are in turn enabled by a much larger group of sympathizers who are shielded by the apathy (sometimes deliberate) of the religious world in general.

Religion is the motivation, religion is a curse.
