RE: A quick introduction of a newbie
*When I wrote this OP they where still alive UndecidedUndecided*
*sigh :'-( *


As my time on this forum grew I started to understand that one of the upsides of organised religion the simple fact is that you have interaction with peers. Something that’s seriously lacking in an atheistic community. Part (if not all) of that interaction I could find here. You people are the parish-members I was missing, so to say.

As you might understand from the OP, I wasn’t really looking whether god existed or not but i was more looking for clues how to fill in certain voids left by religion. I think that is much more challenging then the "truth question" simply because the truth question is already preformed over the last 2000 years but the sociological question keeps evolving. As you might have noticed, I hardly engage in "truth" debates.

Interesting stuff.

To be honest I find the casual threads where we all just have a laugh as more valuable than the serious threads in a way.

As I see it the serious threads are where we expand our knowledge, increase our experience and refine our debating ability. Whereas the casual threads are where the 'community spirit' is born, that's where we get to 'know' (as much as you can over the internet), and even care about, each other.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
