If you don't mind me asking, do you think it would be beneficial for us to discuss our beliefs with one another, or to just leave it alone?
the more you piont her to science the more she will believe!!! something had to put it all together. Cant take a rock and make the rock talk back to each other?? i know i havent see that one yet!

Our top scientists are working very hard to figure out what the fuck you just said.

If you two are seriously that attracted to each other, then it will work out as much as your respective natures allow it. If not, you can always add it to your life story.

It sounds like your similarities are stronger then your differences, why not go with it?Thumbsup

Also, even the best relationship is not perfect, so don't even worry about that shit.

"something had to put it all together."
No, just because you don't understand algorithmic self-organization doesn't mean that's not what happened.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: I'm an atheist and my girlfriend is Christian...
My girlfriend is a neo-pagan, but I don't really mind that she believes in that. If it helps her, then that's great! It does, it makes her happy and I want nothing more than for her to be happy.

You'll have to talk to your gal some more, but if you two have a lot in common I wouldn't think it'd be that big of a jump to adjust to each other's belief sets.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
Bury me with my guns on, so when I'm cast out of the sky, I can shoot the devil right between the eyes.
