"Way to go Seth.  In case you are a romantic at heart, and really want this girl, make sure to demonstrate strength of emotion and not to act too soft and tender around her.  Not saying dont be nice, definitely be nice, but if you want her,…"

"@Ben: That's probably the first instinct most people would have in this situation, but possibly a very bad thing to do.  Giving attention to suicide threats (especially when they're most likely for attention), makes future suicide…"

"@Artor, I agree that I wouldn't call the police unless she is in actual danger with a weapon in her hand.  I would try to talk her into going to the emergency room, because she can get connected with mental health professionals there.…"

Artor commented on Seth Hunter peterson's blog post 'A plea for help'
"Several commenters have recommended calling the police. DO NOT CALL THE COPS!!! Call a suicide hotline or something, but don't ever get the cops involved unless there's an actual criminal for them to arrest. You might get lucky & get a…"

Mo Trauen commented on Seth Hunter peterson's blog post 'A plea for help'
"You already have received a lot of advice on how to prevent her from committing suicide, so I won't cover that.  First, I will say that it is difficult for me to say exactly what is going on here without knowing her and the situation…"

"She needs help - be there for her but don't get involved romantically after she's over this - and it may be a long time.  Please make sure her parents or friends know about her suicidal ideation.  "

Cristynfaye commented on Seth Hunter peterson's blog post 'A plea for help'
"Citizen Atheist, suicidal thoughts do not only belong to theists.  There are people of all belief systems or lack of, who have depression and feel suicidal.  In fact, there are more reasons within theology to *not* commit suicide than to…"

"Dubravko, you do understand that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. They can be helped. That is, IF THEY DON'T SNUFF IT FIRST!"

John Kelly commented on Seth Hunter peterson's blog post 'A plea for help'

My sister is making me go to church, help please?

Posted on January 13, 2012 at 10:00pm 33 Comments

My 20 year old sister is forcing me a 16 year old, to go to church because I am an Atheist (well humanist),and she claims she knows more on the subject than me. Her words on Christopher Hitchens were "He was just mad at God because he had cancer" and Carl Sagan "Devil Worshiper" I did not mention Richard Dawkins because she might have said something more ignorant....But she is making me go to "find all the answers and restore my faith in God". Do I go? Do I absolutely refuse? (Tried that…

Why does it seem that Atheism is mostly focused against Abrahamic religions?

Posted on January 11, 2012 at 2:30am 33 Comments

I have been wondering this lately as my girlfriend and I were talking (She is into Wicca which i think is cool its not like she is trying to end the world with or anything though) She asked me what as an Atheist (and Secular Humanist) I thought of Wicca and I said, "To be honest from what I have read and seen, nothing, you keep to yourselves do your rituals and don't force it down my throat..It seems more like its Judaism, Christianity, and Islam that I'm against." Is it just me or does it…
