"Also, humans do ritual, like funerals, because it can provide comfort, and closure."

Ashley Winter replied to Bernardo's discussion 'Why we overdo death?'
"And since you retain the right to be any way you choose, polite, or unpolite, so will I. Also, not all funerals, memorial services are the same. Not everyone admires a dead body, or talks to one. Any really, why do -you- care how someone else…"

"I suggest you do some research on dinosaurs, or at least the species we know about. While they may have mourned, or had emotions about death, their brains were in no way capable of formulating complex social structures, though we would need to first…"

"lol I have never even heard of it XD I should look it up now."

Ashley Winter replied to Unseen's discussion 'Help me start a new religion'
"On a serious note, I had a thought that, it would be HILARIOUS to actual start a movement that turned into a religion of sorts, all for the hell of it, get people, stupid people to buy into it, and once enough people do, sit them down and tell them,…"

Ashley Winter replied to Bernardo's discussion 'Why we overdo death?'
"As someone who recently lost their mother, I can say this: Death seems overdone at funerals and such, because people are GRIEVING. I will be honest, you sound like either someone who is completely anti-social, with actual problems that need to be…"

"We had Mom's funeral today, and I gave the eulogy. After much procrastination, I wrote it at the last minute, this morning, and this is what I read: The death of a mother is the first sorrow wept without her. I found that that sentence made a…"

Diane replied to Ashley Winter's discussion 'New and Dealing with some Shit'
"Ashley, it brings tears to my eyes to read that - it is such a brutal moment. It will get better.  While we atheists do not have the buffer of thinking that our loved ones will live on in Heaven, we know the value of a person's life as it…"

"Ashley, Sorry for your loss. There are atheist support groups that get together for support and communion. There may be a group in your area. Just a thought."

Ashley Winter replied to Ashley Winter's discussion 'New and Dealing with some Shit'
"Thank you Diane. I would just like to say, we went to the doctor's this morning, and talked to him. Things had gotten worse, to a point where there was no hope. I had had a feeling this morning that today would be the day, not a…"

Diane replied to Ashley Winter's discussion 'New and Dealing with some Shit'
"I think you are doing well even to articulate what you have here.  Many people go through their entire lives never being able to identify their feeling that way.  Maybe the feelings aren't pleasant right now, but at least you are…"

"Right now, I'm preoccupied with guilt. You see, me and Mom, like most families, had a dysfunctional relationship. I'm 21, and ever since I was teenager, we've fought and been tense. I've always lived with her, and in the last…"

Gary replied to Ashley Winter's discussion 'New and Dealing with some Shit'
"I'm terribly sorry you are going through this.  Keep in mind the depth of the pain you feel is only due to the size of the "blessing" your mother has been, and is, to you.  Sam Harris has some great talks on this…"

"Thank you all for the support. I guess, right now, I'm really struggling with the emotional pain. Its painful in a way I didn't think possible before, I guess its not something you can prepare for. I just wish I could stop the pain right…"
