... a 1904 page suicide note.

I heard India Tv going on and on and on about it. Why would someone waste 5 years of his life just to plan and excecute a suicide. Any theories?

And also, how does it equate atheism with nihilism?

"The Seditious Genius of the Spiritual Penis of Jesus"

Can't fault him for lack of style in chapter headings.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

It doesn't.
from the link:
*After reading a good portion of it, I think that this book is exceedingly important for understanding the logical extension of sociobiological worldviews and the very principles upon which modern societies are built, i.e., liberalism in the nonpolitical sense. This man was simply a logically consistent non-Christian. Unbelief, if a person thinks about it, inexorably leads to nihilism. It seems to me that this is one of the most significant philosophical tomes since Nietzsche.

You could put a giant fence around Harvard Square and be completely justified in calling it a mental asylum. The gun shots are a bit unusual, but believing that there is someone in Harvard Square crazy enough to write that stuff you linked, there would be a line of people a mile long. It's an unusual place.
