No worries. I got upset at the tone of your post (I'm a bit emotionally fragile at the moment) but on reflection the general message was sound. I think I see what you're saying - just cos I'm ill doesn't mean I have to throw my brain in the garbage in search of comfort, right?

Hi Elexis. Yes indeed. You must realise you have worth. Run to you.

Do you guys mind somebody hanging around who isn't an atheist & has no desire to become one any time soon? I'd like to drop the new-age crap but don't think my core theistic beliefs are going anywhere, would still be nice to have a little place of scepticism to go to if I ever start going down the woo road again...

I advise you to stick around and be active. The members here are amazing. Also, read my signature. It is there for a very important reason.

I'm gonna tell you a little story.

I was about 11 or 12 and I had moved states from Victoria in south Australia to NSW because I had a better job offer. I hitchhiked all the way. I slept by knocking on doors and asking to borrow a sleeping bag and crash on their porch. Nobody refused.

I turned up at the town, got the job and went to a boarding house. I rang the bell and this old man answered.

"Got a room?"

"You want a room?"

"Where are your parents?"

"Dead. You have a vacancy sign and I have money and a job. I will pay two months in advance."

"Okay mate. Come in."

I lived there for about 6 months before the job was over.

Luckily he never called the cops. Later I got to know the local cop and he was a decent guy and saw I was fully independant.

I never took one day off.

This is where I am coming from. This began at age 8. I have told a few stories on this site but they don't even come close.

Now today I want you to do this.

Go back to the mirror, look into it and say: "Fuck them! Fuck Banjo! I don't need their shit! I am ME!"

With best intentions. Dale

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Hi, I can't see anything, don't know if there's something wrong with my connection...?

No, there are mismatched [quote] tags and that messes up the display. If you reply to the message you should be able to read it.

It's best, IMHO, to read his signature...be patient, please.

RE: Elexis please read.
I've been wondering if he would be into sharing some of that famous drug he is taking.

I doubt you would want it. Undecided

It's giving Banjo quite a beating.

Fixed it.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

You are a genius! I was looking for the culprit and couldn't find the darn thing.

RE: Elexis please read.
Hi Dale,
Thanks for sharing your story, you've given me some things to think about (also, I've now read your signature and will keep that in mind in the future - silly me didn't notice it the first time round).

Quote:Go back to the mirror, look into it and say: "Fuck them! Fuck Banjo! I don't need their shit! I am ME!"

Yes! there's a little bit of my brain that occasionally when I was listening to psychic podcast or similar rot would pipe up 'oh fuck this! we're smarter than this!' - I think I need to listen to that bit more often eh?

On reflection I think you were right that I need a shock to the system - I kinda feel like I've been hypnotised for years and need to snap out of it. I think a good next step would be throwing out all the psychic books and magazines I've accumulated.

Hope you are doing well at the moment
best wishes,

Alexis
