just b/c you're atheist doesn't mean you can't take anything away from death.

don't buy into the theist-critique of atheism that atheists have no spirituality.

that's bunk. because that means you're allowing yourself to be defined by your opposite.

bayle showed long ago that atheists could be ethical.

nietzsche, that they could be spiritual.

i can't understand your pain so i'll stop.

Oh, I'm feeling ethical (and contagious). Ethics are rules for how living people treat other living people. What does watching a good friend die have to do with that?

nietzsche, that they could be spiritual.

Mrrph? The spirit of the material? I'm undereducated and all, but it seems slightly contradictory. No, don't tell me - it'll just piss me off.

death makes us treat the living a little better.

makes us realize that there is a shared core in all of us.

Good point. If I really hate someone, I won't kill them. I'll kill someone they really care about. When they get over that, I'll do it again.

Thanks.

In my family, July's been the killer month. I lost my Dad (2003), my older brother (2005) and youngest brother (2005) between July 20 and August 1st.

As a devoted communicant of the 'Beats-Me' faith, the only truth I can discern from this is to stay the hell out of Florida in the freaking hellish summer there.

This leaves me on track towards my personal goal of dying at 91, shot in the back by a jealous husband while yippie-yi-ki-yo-ing in the saddle.
