But Nobody Owes Us Anything

This seems to be a cop-out. For instance, in my thread, Bias Due to Politics, someone could just say, "Well, nobody owes anyone anything. People like what they like. Get over it!"

Anyway, I heard this line from radical atheist also. I said something like "But isn't an afterlife with nothing kind of sucky?". His response was this snarky, "But nature doesn't owe us anything. Get over it!".

Well, I suppose I agree with the title of this thread to an extent - but to some extent that isn't true. I mean, the person whom you think is whiny - might have legit arguments, arguments being ignored - cause the attacker simply won't look at things with an open mind, is being arrogant.
