Seated at a booth by myself, in between two booths of old people, I can't help but hear the conversations. The ones behind me are working on a Christian website, called "Miracle-somethingorother", on their laptops. It's actually kinda charming, since they appear to be 70ish but clearly have a pretty good grasp of how to make a website, and I get a few chuckles as they start to discuss how to phrase things "properly" so it is "Christ-appropriate". Nothing to bug me.

At the table in front of me, they're discussing a fortune cookie that said, "A problem you have been having will disappear this month". The lady doing most of the talking does a pretty good job of skeptically dissecting the claim, since it could apply to anything and is meant to be read with confirmation-bias, et cetera. I'm delighted! Christians on one side of me, Skeptics on the other... except, nope... turns out they were only skeptical to fortune cookies. Their next fifteen minutes were spent discussing every asinine claim made among the Woo of the Christ flock, everything from Bible Prophecies Coming True Today™ (what did you just say about confirmation bias, lady?) to "We can see the Power of the Lord working with that poor family our church is helping out" (since the Lord saw fit to let the patriarch of the family die in a very medically-expensive way). One of them even managed to throw in a "Obama says we all came from monkeys" claim at another point in that conversation. Angry


I managed, just, not to comment, but after hearing the "came from monkeys" slur, I put down my fork hard enough for them to notice my agitation and stalked over to pay for my meal and get the hell out of there. Luckily, the lovely weather made the ride the rest of the way home pleasant enough that my mood has recovered.

I have got to get out of this town.

What bike do you ride?

My brother has one of the most beautiful bikes ever made, a 1996 Honda VF750C Magna Deluxe in violet and creme, but his has a set of Vance & Hines 4-into-4 exhaust.

RE: At the Chinese Buffet, Today...
Darn, I guess I'll derail this thread to talk about the original topic.

I was at Braums with my nephew and we were talking about the council of Nicea and how they constructed Christianity. This lady from the next table over kept looking at us with an angry look on her face.

I could tell she didn't like what we were saying, but she was also ignorant of what we were talking about other than Christianity wasn't very real. So I think she was wanting to shout at us "Jesus is real!" but she just sat there in silence glaring. Laugh out load
