For those about to read this, I salute you.
Hello from Minnesota, the land of snow and mosquitoes. I'm an agnostic who is starting to lean toward atheism. I'm still in the middle of a journey to escape my childhood indoctrination. I suffer from anxiety and major depression. This makes it difficult to deal with the fear of hell that was instilled in me. My curious mind takes me one way while me fear tries to hold me back.

I must admit to being a little fearful about posting in this forum as I am not as knowledgeable as others here and I'm afraid of being chewed up and spit out. I really hope I'm wrong about that.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

P.S. My user name was my college nickname. It was bestowed on my when I played Julia in a theatrical production of Orwell's "1984." Just in case any one was wondering.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Welcome, I'm your neighbor to the south!

I was a little scared at first, feeling most topics would be out of my league as well, and that I would also be chewed up and spit out. I'll admit, there are those who are not always the nicest, but you'll run into that anywhere. I've loved being apart of this group so far, and see much more kindness than not. There is a VERY large range of topics as well.

Oh and welcome ComradeBunny, you're probably used to rabbit holes so you should be fine here. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
