I have been absent from my atheist community for two years now. I was very active and loved the community I needed so much. When I was drove out I suffered the loss of friends, community and I was so vulnerable by the disassociation that I became depressed and could barely function except to work and give myself basic care.
I am at sea and I still fear the natives on the only land in sight.
(Sorry, this issue took so many turns. It’s been churning in my head for some time now and once I started spewing it sort of just all came up. Please just respond to what interests you, if any, and leave the rest as flotsam and jetsam. Thx)
After such a traumatic experience I would think you would be sensitive to these impacts on others…
From the thread entitled(paraphrase):“Can someone recommend any good science documentaries.”

Preferably something recent. I’ve already seen the new cosmos series
thanks in advance
Mz. Lee-I have to say, I think your use of CS name is very off-putting to me.
I thought about not saying anything and ignoring you completely but decided on the direct and honest approach. It’s your right to choose whichever name you want but I find it disrespectful to his memory and all that he gave the world… it is also telling, IMO.
I speak only for myself so there are many here who may still converse with you.
This was from a number of weeks back but I wanted to raise this contrast.
An internet forum avatar and a hokey name. We all have them. Some have Galileo or Copernicus as their avatars. Some use famous composers as names, or cities, or etc..
This poor guy comes along on his 7th-8th post and asks if someone can recommend some good science documentaries.
Perhaps he or she wanted to be a member of the community here. We’ll never know because after this reply from you Mz. Lee, he’s gone.
A hokey internet name like Carl Sagan and a desire to find some science documentaries…that’s all.
I hope the person has more intestinal fortitude than you Mz Lee. I hope this person is able to function after this.
I for one hope he is using the name Carl Sagan still. Whoopie doo!! It’s the internet.
