Horrible story ,but has no bearing on "humans" just an isolated "human" fucked up.

Evolving morality of modern man is something to be proud of, its still shit mind you, but the progress made so far and what is evident in the fact that most people care about that story is evidence its getting better.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Yeah, but look on the bright side.

Could be worse.

Gota look at it through Religious glasses, God made the car breakdown so the mechanics would find the child.
Why he never intervened in the 20 months of its life beforehand is not to be questioned on fear of torment in hell.

RE: My faith in humans is waning...
I read this story on Saturday as it has been all over the news here in France - this happened only about 50 miles from where I live.
Shocked doesn't even begin to describe how I feel, along with the rest of France. Poor little thing.
I don't think the whole of the human race should be tarred because of some crazy woman who was too scared to tell her husband she had had ANOTHER baby (birth control comes to mind) and therefore hid it in the boot of the car - God knows how she survived the heat of summer; it can get pretty hot here.
The neighbours were equally shocked and remarked that the woman did spend quite a lot of time in the car but I don't think it would have occurred to them in a million years that there was a baby in there????!!!!
So so sad. So so glad they found her.

people have always been this uncaring, not most people but there have always been those complete monsters who do atrocious things and dont at all care. My faith in humanity is at the same level, next to nill as usual.

I have become rather anti-death penalty in recent years, but anyone who does this kind of crap to a child deserves nothing less, but usually a lot worse.

Absolutely sickening.

This is cruel beyond belief. There are no words in the English language that allow me to even begin to describe how I feel about this. And what's even worse, I'm sure there are a lot of similar cases which are never discovered. Sad, cruel, stupid.

RE: My faith in humans is waning...
Interesting article.

Consider

Here's a possible scenario...

The father did not know about the child.
Mother was secretly breast-feeding her child (hence the 'parked away from the house' part).
Child had very recently got sick and the excrement was fresh i.e. just the appearance of months of lack of care.

So then, the questions are:

How did the father not know?
Was he working away from home for a long time?

Why didn't she tell the father?
Maybe he was not the father and the shame, stigma and potential loss of security (financial protection) that might be the result of telling him was greater than the consideration for the well-being of the child. Maybe he was the father but there was the shame and stigma attached to having a retarded child.

What drove the mother's behaviour?
She had enough empathy to keep on breast-feeding but not enough of a bond to override the other factors above, e.g. stigma etc.
Was it fear? ... of the father's reaction? ... of social rejection? ... of god?

How come she had no one else she could turn to?

Others, above, have already sentenced and condemned.

It's certainly an unusual case with apparently sociopathic elements but I'll reserve judgment in the absence of more facts.
