RE: Greetings
I've always liked Robert Heinlein's take on it:

History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.

[Robert Heinlein, "Notebooks of Lazarus Long," from Time Enough for Love (1973).]

The eccentric-as-all-getout niece of Dear, Sweet Uncle Loki says "Hæ!" Hope you enjoy your sojourn at TTA.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

Welcome to the forum.
