What did people believe in when they didn't believe in atoms?

2021.12.06 09:10 RodusMacflodus What did people believe in when they didn't believe in atoms?

When looking up early theories of matter, I was surprised to see that Ancient Greece and Ancient India came up with the idea of atoms pretty astonishingly early on. But I know that, given how humans work, these ideas were probably met with a lot of skepticism, especially when they would have been such invisible things to ancient people, and they certainly weren't universally believed theories all throughout history. As a modern guy living in an atomic world, this has always been really difficult to wrap my head around, but extremely interesting!
To those people and cultures that didn't believe in atomism, what was the alternative? How did their system of physics work? What were things made out of? And what did they think would we see if we looked through an extremely powerful microscope at an atomless world?

2021.12.06 09:10 throwawayadventure1 Weird wording from 40M, does it seem intentional?

I was/had been dating a guy, and he just stopped communicating a few weeks ago. He is an avoidant, so it's not unusual for him to go 10 days here and there off the grid. But...this was long, even for him.
Between life issues I was having and the Thanksgiving holiday, I wasn't really in a good position to be actively dating anyway. I was busy myself. I wouldn't really have been able to get together for dates even if it was an option. Not to give him an excuse or a pass on just disappearing.
Anyway, I had something come up in my life that I thought he would have some expertise/insight on, so yesterday I messaged him. He replied almost immediately. Seemed talkative. The conversation remained pretty neutral and focused on my issue at hand, but...he was talking at least.
So, I brought up an early Christmas present I was getting, and his reply was: "Not sure but I saw the perfect one for you today." (I had told him to guess what I was getting) He never elaborated on what he saw.
So, we continued on in the conversation; he sent me a few books that he had bought. And then, he throws this into the conversation: "I am going to ask for the murder one back when shes done with it."
Now...bear in mind that no one had been mentioned prior in this conversation to give any sort of reference point to the "she's." Would you say this is intentional? My thought is...best case scenario, he was trying to get a reaction out of me. But, the way I am leaning (due to the fact he fell off the face of the earth) is that there is "someone else" and he was trying to hint that to me, without wanting to come right out and say it---because men are cowards.
Would you say that's the likely interpretation?
I mean...there's not really even a reason to word it that way at all. He could have said "That murder one looks really interesting." or "I look forward to reading the murder one." Which leads me back to the idea that it was intentional.
I didn't react, just continued on with the conversation. Some people might say I should have asked him about it. But...it's a little too late to do that now. Some people might say it's good that I didn't react. I just dunno.

2021.12.06 09:10 Jamiebedford01gb to the love of my life: an explanation

you were always right. im intense, im clingy, im needy. i will never not be in disbelief that i'm no longer with you. i think you have seen how calm i can be - perhaps even too laid back - but we both know that's only when things go smoothly. life unfortunately isn't like that and i can't react like this every time there is a challenge. i wish i wasn't like this because i know how unhealthy it is for everyone but it's the brain I was blessed with.
these days i'm now have this weird sort of anhedonia. i know i have many things that used to make me happy that don't directly involve you but yet i dont see the point, the motivation, and i can't enjoy anything if i know i can't tell you about the thing that is making me happy, the thing that i did, the goal i'm working towards, the thing i achieved, the emotion i felt, or the thing i laughed at. nothing makes me feel anymore. i have lost all motivation to do anything but try and be with you and that is wrong. and as much as i am sorry for what this will cause, this is why i have to do this. my only drive is to be with you and therefore i'm scared that all my future has in store is harassing you, releasing my anger and desperation on you, and hurting you. this is for myself in the sense i don't want to spend my days being known as an abuser or as a convict. but it's also for you. i want the best for you and i don't want to hurt you any longer. i want you to be the happiest that you can be. and i know this will cause pain initially but in the long run i think you will be better off compared to if i was here.
we both promised we would never leave and i know i have let you down in doing this. i know i could carry on heartbroken and try and rebuild the pieces back in my life I could. but i don't want to. i just don't have the will power anymore. i am so weak and in too much pain. i will slowly get stronger just for my mind to shoot me back down again and again. i hope you will forgive me. i believe it is the best thing for both of us. i always wanted you to be happy and i would do anything to make that happen. and this is what it takes. i have always been willing to die for you and this is one of those rare circumstances where the person has to commit to that oath.
i love you, emily. i know you loved me too at one point, i really do. and i feel so blessed to have experienced your love. it made me the happiest i have ever been. i guess i never realised how unfulfilled and incomplete i was before you came into my life.
and i know in the end your love had changed. at least to extent it wasn't strong enough to want us to work. to want to try. to battle through the difficult, unnatural times for a future with me. but that doesn't change my feelings for you. i am in such awe of you that nothing ever could make me not think you are the most special person in the universe. you are far too good for me. you deserve so much better. i love you too much to deny you that.
i hope you remember me and the good times we had together. the growth we had as a couple. the things that we brought to each other. the things we changed about one another. the new hobbies we shared. the life we had. i hope you will think of me positively.
one last kiss, jamie x

2021.12.06 09:10 thecherry94 Looking for up-to-date guides, tier lists and general information

Hey people,
I used to play this game a lot during alpha/beta and stopped playing completely around the time Auroria was released. I haven't had more fun with any other MMO. My most played class was Blighter.
Now that Archeage: Unchained restarted under a new publisher I thought I'd give it another try.
Basically I'm looking for guides, tier lists and general information on the game to learn what has changed since I stopped playing. Greatly appreciate any information you can provide.
