RE: Am I being weak minded?
What is it that makes you feel down? Is it that constant ridicule, or is it something different? If you are feeling down because someone brings up a good enough argument to cause you to change your beliefs or at least your interpretation of your beliefs and you don't, that is the very definition of weak minded. If however someone is just being nasty to you for no good reason, you need to learn to shut them off. Being nasty to someone is what people do when they have no valid argument. You really just need to be the bigger person in cases like that and drop it.

As well, I think we - I - might also view you as the representative of all the delusional out there and so any venting toward you, becomes very misdirected.

I don't think I've ever extended my apology to you for blasting you a couple months back. I think at the time, I resented you just being there and presenting yourself as if you had some kind of sway over any one's situation. Also at the time, I was being inundated (in the forum and the outside world) with people trying to convince me that Atheism is a religion... and with that, I lost my shit on you.

Not only did I not address the issue with you directly when it happened, which I should have, but I also felt pretty shitty at having blown up at you in such a resentful way - that felt so strange. I've never done that Kingsy, I apologise for that.

You don't represent all the delusional... you only represent your own delusion. Pretty sure your delusion is fairly easy to handle. Wink

Thanks, Kim. And, I never held anything against you. I just figured you were having a bad day.

Slowly, inexorably, one by one, the supports are being worn away. For people in your position, with your family connections, a "break" would be very traumatic, and almost "unthinkable", on a conscious level. Maybe the sadness is a recognition of that happening ? Maybe not. Some day it will happen. You wouldn't be here if there wasn't something to this.

Edit : And anyway, who says you have to be "strong minded" all the time, anyway ? You're still a kid Kingsy. You have adult responsibilities, but you're a very young man. Most people don't figure this stuff out 'till a lot later in life. Erxy had a pulpit when he was your age. Cut yourself some slack, dude.

Heh... no, I still believe my beliefs. Sometimes, I do reevaluate them, though.

And well... I just consider myself a strong person. I don't like weakness or showing weakness, so when I have weakness... I guess, that's what really makes me sad. I guess, more or less, it's my pride. Because I let someone get to me I see that as being weak; therefore, I become sad because I feel that I shouldn't show that type of weakness.

And, I'm not that young... pretty sure I'm older than you.

But, thanks Bucky Smile

Thoughts?

Will it affect your election? If not, why you give a shit?

There are many things I've read on this forum which make me sad. Atheists dicking with a nihilist who wraps himself in fancy Jesus ribbons and bows ain't one of them, brother. Wink Similarly, fuckers dicking with me have no chance of making me sad or angry or anything other than being entertained. Like you, I put no faith in myself so I am incapable of being offended or even taking offense.

Gotta go find that video bemore found about getting over yourself
...
found it
...
drop yourself and you can't be fucked with or disturbed or even affected by anyone else. Fuckers are left with just futile shadow boxing. Buck up little trooper. Wink




I hate to say it, but you're right. 100%.

I need to toughen up.

Thank you Smile

Can always count on you to make me feel better.

I'd like to hold something against Kim. Hobo

Because people ask me to "prove" my faith, which I have repeatedly said I can't.

You are on a forum with atheists. If you are going to make your ridiculous claims, you need some ridiculously good evidence.

There is no empirical evidence for faith.

I mean... that would kind of defeat the purpose of faith.
