GOOD JOB FELLOW ATHEISTS
« on: March 19, 2015, 10:52:29 PM »
Way to show them Christians how love is done.  Thanks for all the sympathy over the death of my friend.

Hell at least the Christians on FB told this proud atheist how sorry they were. 

Please start to prove that atheists are more loving than Christians.  It's the only way to change people's minds. 

Either that or quit bitching because there's too much religion in the world.

Junebug, if you're expecting genuine sympathy from a forum of relative strangers who only know each other (with very few exceptions) over the internet, you are going to be disappointed. This is principally a debate / discussion forum. We have subforums for support, and I have expressed my sentiments to you and others there, where and when it is appropriate.

You're being unrealistic if you expect sympathy on tap whenever you want it.

Wright,

Why not?  Is sympathy such a hard thing to give?

No holding grudges is so much better.

I won't to win the fight against religion.  That will not happen if atheists don't start proving love w/o gods.  I can do that all day long with the exception of 5 days a year. :laugh:

The religious don't understand complicated thinking.  They understand kindness.  They fear death.  They know they are capable of being MONSTERS.  My reference to the life story of Leigh Wornous. 

They're perception of LOVE is fucked up.  That's what they need.  A lesson in Humanism. 

hu·man·ism

noun

an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.

^^^So you do. Why not start this one there, then, or in Chatter? Or is this thread really about how atheists need to provide an example of sympathy to any theists who wander by?

If so, then why start it with what seems like, frankly, whining about not getting enough attention? I have expressed sympathy to you in the past because I sincerely felt it, not because you demanded it.

I for one wasn't following the thread in question, so I missed the tragic detail revealed in it.

If you wouldn't mind a suggestion....

You generally catch more flies with honey.

Also, not everyone notices stuff like this.  I've been in a big hullabaloo in a thread and it's taking up most of the attention I put into this forum.

I see this thread. Have no idea what nonsense she has in her OP but going by the comments sounds like she's whining, as usual, as attention seekers do.

Personally, I think everyone should have her on ignore. But...that's just me.

Didn't see the thread but, you have my sympathy.   I'm going through something similar with a close family member and haven't been online as much.  All the best to you.

You never check in on the Personal Advice and moral support section?

They are the threads.

I read the first part, about dealing with your slumlord.  You seemed to be getting the support and advice you needed, and there wasn't anything helpful I could have added to that.

It didn't occur to me that "dealing with a slumlord" would some day become a thread about someone dying.  Should it have?

I understand that you're an atheist now. Do you really not see how a thread where you start off complaining about a lack of response to a personal loss is seen as demanding? People start threads about various topics all the time; what will engage the interest of our little community here is beyond any individual's control.

But it's a pretty rare thing to see a thread-starter, even in the Support section, taking offense at a lack of response, and starting an entirely new thread about specifically that topic. That just makes it look like you're interested in gratifying your ego, not getting genuine sympathy.

Some of us do empathize with you and have expressed our support. But in this thread, you started off disappointed with the forum as a whole, as if you expected a clear majority to sincerely sympathize with you. That's a pretty unrealistic expectation to have of a group like this.

I have never empathized with her, and never will. How can anyone empathize, in my opinion, with a taker and never a giver. All she wants is everyone's empathy and support. She never gives it. Never gives it.

She's more callous than I am.

And that's saying something.
