“That the philosophy of materialism is pessimistic, none can deny; but much may be said in favor of a calm, courageous facing of the infinite by the resigned, disillusioned, unhoping, unemotional atom as contrasted with the feverish, pathological struggle and agony of the Christian mind, coping desperately with the mythical shadows and problems it has invented, and agitated by emotions which idealism has overstimulated instead of repressing as emotions should be repressed. The materialist has nothing to lose; the idealist is eternally suffering the pains of disillusionment” - H.P. Lovecraft.

It's always been hilarious to me how atomism is constantly touted as a "major discovery" of modern science, as though we've solved the nature of matter, when not a single scientist actually treats it as anything more than a useful provisional hypothesis at a certain scale, and that it is basically conclusively refuted as a metaphysical level by dozens of independent critical philosophers beginning more than 2000 years ago. It is simultaneously the hubris and ironically the absolute folly of the modern prejudices, the relative importance placed on atomism could not be more symbolic of the general character of this type of prejudice. And ultimately it is honestly hilarious when viewed from this broader perspective.

The more Lovecraft quotes I read the more he comes across as the biggest fucking midwit. This is even gayer than the one where he frets about Franco.

It is up to you to prove your assertion, or to view it as false until you do. The notion that atoms have emotions is absurd and makes you sound like a retard to people who aren't complete retards themselves.
Which is why this fact is sensible to keep in mind if you ever actually interact with anyone outside of anonymous shitposting sites

I already told you. There is bias, because atheists naturally tend to be secularists, so they go to the doctor or seek help if they feel down. Relitards do not, because they can't feel bad without feeling guilty, since if they feel bad they obviously must have done something wrong, or Dog just doesn't care about them any more
