    So, There's 2 Atheists. Atheists 1 and Atheist 2. Atheist 1 Gets a deal from atheist 2. They meet up with each other and atheist 1 pays atheist 2 for the deal that was made. Soon, atheist 1 realizes he's been conned so brilliantly. Finding where atheist 2 lives, a few months later, he sues atheist 2 for the con game he played and wants his money back. Unfortunalty, atheist 2 can't do that. Atheist 2 claims it wasn't his doing and doesn't know what happened to the money because what happened was done by random chance. The case is dismissed and atheist 1 is sad. What do you think?

  • I work hard, but my peers don't praise me.?

    Everyday I'm furious at everyone. I can't do the things I love anymore because all I can think is how all my effort is going to waste or that my perception is so warped that I can't even tell what's good anymore so thus what I'm creating is bad and I'm doing a disservice to my subjects. I'm an art student. I love art. I love comics. In Highschool, I wrote a 1000+ page novel and have had two agents tell me that it'd be publishable if not for some of the subject matter. I had an art show at the local college. Even then, no one was interested in my stuff. No one wanted to read my book. No one went to my show. When people saw my art on display, they didn't say anything. I'm at the end of my first year of college now. I've had an art show offered to me next year. I've made cash off my art. But in my class, I was never praised during critiques. I'd show my art and I'd get laughed at and mocked. People would say "I can do better than you." I ask for critique and I get insults. People have vandalized my work. I talked to the professor and she said that out of everyone in the class, she believed I was the only one who could make it professionally. She said I had the talent, drive, and work ethic for it. That with all the other students, there were awkward moments. Not with me. We showed our final project. My professor said I was the best by far. She said my quality was professional. But my peers laughed at me. They didn't say anything positive. I can't continue like this.

  • Is emotional pain conducive to artistic creativity?

    Best answer: I believe it is more a byproduct than a source.

    I recall a story about Ernest Hemingway bristling when a young literary journalist asked him to explain the meaning of one of his stories.

    "Meaning?" Hemingway growled. "Everything I wanted to say is on those pages. It means exactly what I wrote. I can't express any clearer for you."

    I think Hemingway's terse response alludes to a common trait among artists: their artistic expression is often compensation for an inability to otherwise enunciate their heightened passions and sensitivity. And because the nature of art is so subjective, that message is often misunderstood or misinterpreted, leading to a sense of frustration, failure and alienation.

    Think of the emotional pain experienced by stroke sufferers, or the common frustration felt by those in foreign countries unfamiliar with the local language. I doubt many would call those feelings "conducive" to each situation, but would instead recognize both as rooted in the disconnect between thought and the ability to fully express it.

    Too many would-be artists, I believe, fall into the trap that equates artistic merit with addiction and emotional instability and commit themselves more to "living the life" than to their own creativity. Author/journalist Pete Hamill, a celebrated member of a hard-living, hard-drinking generation of NYC writers, often lamented how younger writers seem to glorify alcoholism.

    "My writing isn't a product of tragedy," he once said. "The tragedy is all the things I might have achieved but didn't because I gave into the drinking life."
