Clear thinking helps depression.
I am saying that, since I have a mental disorder, my brain might not respond normally like most normal people would if they were to live an eternal life of no problems in which they would feel that life would have less meaning, them being bored to death, and wanting to end that life, etc. I, on the other hand, would respond to that life the opposite way since I have this mental disorder.

I agree with you mozart link - your possible mental disorder will make eternal life MUCH worse ! Depressed for eternity !
People not depressed might become seriously depressed by the age of 300 or maybe 1000 - but you will be depressed from now till infinity recurring. Now that sounds like Hell even if described as Heaven.

As for anhedonia how does an afterlife help if you cannot experience pleasure now put postpone to an "imagined pleasure" in the future - and even if the afterlife was pleasurable eventually we would all get anhedonia and want to die whether after 200 yrs or 1000yrs - afterlife's dont make this life any more meaningful than reincarnation and forgetting the past life.

In any case you gain pleasure NOW by thinking you will get pleasure later in some afterlife - so you can feel pleasure and somewhat contradicting yourself.

What about Jeremy E Walker, Miss Meng, FZUMedia, Mark Dreher, I and I, TheArcticSage and all the others?

The mods never banned trolls because of trolling. Those trolls were banned for breaking rules like having multiple accounts etc. The Jeremy walker fucker is one example.

Welcome to TTA, that's how things have always worked around here. Trolls take longer to get banned here than at other places, that's the price paid for greater administrative tolerance of controversial behavior. It has its benefits too, you know. It might take longer, but trolls usually are banned eventually.

This is far from the worst assortment of trolls we've had visit the board, and hbl has already been banned for spamming. Mozart Link is probably close to receiving the boot for the same offense.

PS: Also, ArcticSage was essentially banned for trolling during Lucradis' reign and Buddy Christ did a kamikaze ban on FZU. It happens sometimes.

Thanks for reply. Maybe I need more patience. It's hard to have patience when trolls are going too far shitting the boards. I hope Mozart link is next. The dude is posting exactly the same threads in all atheist forums.Dodgy

I like your username, it's like "Farther From The Truth" but your saying "Farther" with a Jamaican accent. Idk if that is intentional or I just think of weird things.
