"Sorry, Greg, for your HUGE loss.  It's not usual to use the word, "giant" in reference to a female, but, to me, it fits her personage. Bob, you missed a real opportunity to garner a modicum of respect. If only you'd just…"

"I agree Bob was being disrespectful, and I don't know whether it was intentional or not.  In this case I would just let it go.  Hashing it out here is disrespectful by all involved, in my humble opinion."

"Bob, explain how your praying for an atheist's "soul" is any different from the Mormons baptizing the dead (including Holocaust victims) into Mormonism. Doing somthing they would have disavowed in life is abusing the dead."

"Keeping in mind that dictionaries both describe and prescribe word use, I turned to my tiny shirt-pocket-size Larousse French-English dictionary. It defines faux thusly: 1) wrong, 2) false, 3) fake. So, Greg, your ...religious people have faux…"

Gallup's Mirror commented on Greg Olson-Hyde's blog post 'Sometimes I envy the religious in death!'
"This does seem like a passive-aggressive way for Bob to express that his religious views are superior. It's partly that Bob is praying for an atheist, partly that "repose" means "shorten Suzanne's time in purgatory",…"

James Brooks commented on Greg Olson-Hyde's blog post 'Sometimes I envy the religious in death!'
"First off Greg, I am sorry for your loss. I've been questioning religion since I was 12 years old (I'm 36 now.) I didn't become a full blown atheist until I was 23. Unfortunately, about two months after I had come to the decision that…"

Greg Olson-Hyde replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
"Wow, can of worms here. That article was fascinating and explores issues and concepts that I have been investigating for many years. Craig T. Palmer and Randy Thornhill are, to my mind, very close to the mark. Before I start on my diatribe - RAPE…"

I am Greg, husband of the recently deceased White Unicorn, Suzanne Olson-Hyde. We are/were both confirmed atheists of long standing - roughly 50 years each - we both gave up religion in our early teens.

But now that Suzanne has 'ceased to be', I am having an internal struggle between my logical self - still DEFINITELY an atheist, and my 'fantasy', wishful thinking self that would love to believe that Suzanne still exists somewhere and that she is being looked after.
