    Why do we Cry ?

    It doesn't lessen our actual trouble.
    But, yes it does lessen the trouble of our mind.

    But, what is the trouble with our mind which gets lessen after some time whereas the actual trouble still stands on the same place where it was ?

    Child cry on their first day to school, Why?
    Because in such a situation child seeks the help of parent to go back home.
    But, after some time child realise that.. Now, parent is no longer there to help at all. Hence, child have to manage on its own. Finally, the child stop crying whereas the actual trouble still stands on the same place where it was ?

    Likewise.. Mind seeks the help of God.

    If you are a TRUE-ATHEIST than don't cry.
    But, if you cry than you believe there's God somewhere.

    Likewise, if you are a true believer then don't laugh. But, if you laugh, then you are not really a believer.

    You don't understand the basics about atheism still.

    That probably hints that your understanding of god is likewise lacking.

    That is sad.

    TRUE THAT.
    There's nothing to laugh, nothing to be egoist, nothing to be pride.

    Yes, if I am a true believer than shouldn't laugh, or be egoist, or be pride at my own in any circumstance.

    Yes, a true believer is neither in happiness, nor in sorrow.

    Thank you :

    There really are some mad threads on this forum. And a lot of misunderstanding of non-belief.

    Tear is physical thing and its related to our physical head, not emotions.
    Whereas sorrow/cry isn't a physical thing, its related to our emotions.

    Am talking about emotions, brother

    This thread almost made me cry. Does that make me closer to believing? God, I sure hope not.

    Since many people cry without asking for help from anyone or anything, but, instead, are just using it as a release of emotions, why does this claim of yours even make sense.

    In other words, obviously not everyone who cries is asking God for help. Claiming otherwise is simply dishonest. So, why do you think people who cry must, necessarily believe in god if, often, crying has nothing to do with god?

    What a ridiculous post. Making up nonsensical claims about atheists is just plain childish.

    I pretty much stopped crying when I was four or five. I was out in a field alone and did something, hurt myself pretty good blood and such. I was a kid and started crying. That's what kids do when they get hurt.

    So I sat there a while crying and nobody came. Nothing got any better. I suddenly thought to my self, why am I crying? Crying's not going to fix anything.

    Guess I stopped praying later on when I realize prayer wasn't going to fix anything either.

    Yes the mind will create imaginary beings to support itself. The mind has lots of tricks to deal with our emotional distress. Doesn't really fix problems, just make folks feel better about stuff.

    If you want to actually fix problems you got to learn to sit all that emotional stuff aside.

    "Tearing up" is another word for "crying" in the english language. Both usually refer to an emotional state.

    I am just curious as to why your picture is of a non-believer. i.e of someone laughing?

    What's a true atheist, and why can't they have human emotions? Present your evidence, please.
