party tiem.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

Couldn't sleep....No one has said anything yet. They are all at church is why LOL.

Here is what I posted:


Quote:Family and Friends:
Some of you may have seen this coming, some may not but I am just going say it: I have lost my faith.

It's been a long time in the making and after a lot of praying, thinking, consulting and looking within over the past few years, and even more so within the past few months which lead to this, I decided to let everyone know via FB so that my words aren't twisted and I can get everything
out that I need to say.

"Coming Out" about this is scary for me as I'm not sure who is still going to want to be in my life or not, but I needed to bring this out in the open. I am an atheist.

I'm still the same person, it's just that I found a different path in my life that I don't want to have to feel like I'm hiding and I don't want to feel like I'm lying to the people I love as most of you know that I was a Christian.

It wasn't an easy decision to make. There were a lot of internal struggles that I went through which lead me here. I am sure some of you will not agree with or understand my decision but if you love me and care about me, then I hope you can still at least respect me as I am still the same person, I just believe in one less god than you. If you can't, I won't hold a grudge and will still love you the same.

I won't go through the twists and turns on the whys and hows I lost my faith but if you need to talk, feel free to private message or call me,
my door is always open.
I was going to write:

Quote:Some of you may have seen this coming, some may not but I am just going say it: I am an atheist......
But changed it because I thought saying it that way may have been too shocking for them and that wasn't my intention.

I feel better already. Smile Anxiety is gone. I have more people I need to tell but I know it won't be a big deal to them like it was this particular group.

Well done! One more person is at peace.

Now, what are we going to do for the 4 billion people who still believe?

I'm pleased to announce the Australian Prime Minister (an atheist), has initiated a royal commission into the abuse of children in religious institutions. Makes me wonder when Obama is going to admit he's an atheist? Does he need some encouragement?

If Obama were to make such an admission, he should do so after he's done some amazing things for our country, and closer to the end of his next term.

When he's done being in politics.
