Some female speaker got hit on in an elevator at an atheist convention and cried harassment

Then Richard Dawkins weighed in and said at least you're not in Somalia getting your clit hacked off with a garden shear so quit whining

I see you still havent wrapped your head around the argument about objective morality.

technically speaking, yes, But in general once you throw religion out the window you are inclined to fill that vacuum with something else in terms of answering the questions that religions tend to try to provide an answer for. Cause you might not like their answers, but the questions religious people are asking about our existence are pretty basic human questions that apply to all of us.

That's why the vast majority of atheists are predictable in terms of their opinions on a variety of subjects including life after death, magic, ghosts etc. Those are people who are material naturalists.

Then you have the new age types who replace conventional religion with a more secular mysticism.

But it all follows along familiar lines that generally tend to act as a substitute for the former religion


Hence why I say it's a de facto religion, not a religion per se. It's not structurally designed to be a religion, it just tends to assume that mold via the vacuum that is created by losing the original religion.

Because this thread has shown itself to be a place you probably shouldn't open up I want all readers to know my PMs are always open and I can at the very least be a listening ear and share some things I've learned throughout my treatment.

I mean, it's the internet, not a therapist.

You shouldn't open up at all in a place full of random anonymous people where anybody can read and comment on what you say especially if you're sensitive about it.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

Of course people should be careful about opening up on the internet, but this is only a place full of random strangers in theory; in reality this is a small community of people who generally know each other quite well. And we are justified in demanding that people aren't *******s about each other's mental issues.
