It was us who were "trolling"

We were just making a few nonserious replys.

We're not always sure of the dynamic, either.No
Thank you for bearing with us.Smile

It's all fine. There are so many clicks, so many different people of different nationalities, cultures, and philosophies that you will meet.

And all levels of maturity. Which is a situational construct, any way. What may seem mature in one place can seem immature in another.

But anyway...

Not trolls at all, just the usual band of crazies that are around here that actually do get around to reading a lot of threads and giving some helpful insights on a lot of things.

You'll get used to it. When they do that it does make your reply count grow which may make people more interested in reading it.

Raising freethinking kids? I let mine go to any church with their friends they wanted to. I didn't take them. My girls even did the VBS a couple times. Let them question everything...let them experience things and make up their own minds. You really want 'freethinkers' who aren't indoctrinated to believe what anyone else believes, even yourself. Answer questions, provide ways to find answers to things you don't know, and allow them to use the brains/minds they have to come to their own conclusions.

Mine are grown, I have two atheists and one that attends church because of the people around her but is more agnostic I guess you would say.















Be honest with your kids about your beliefs (or lack thereof) but make sure they know that they have the right to make up their minds.

Different people believe different things...that's a good place to start when and if religious questions start.

You'll get used to us...we are sometimes serious, sometimes looney, often ADD, frequently quite supportive, and relatively intelligent...and you will see actual trolls run out of this place.

And, welcome.

I take exception to this. My therapist and I have agreed I act like a 15 year old boy, not 14. Dodgy

Yeah, well you pay her to tell you what you want to hear...I was being generous...12 is closer to the truth!

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Do you like it, though? It's my own creation. I call it "The Ascent and Descent of Man"... and I've not had a response from anyone, saying that it's either good or bad. The message is that the secularist (or secular humanist/atheist) stands tall and is following the true evolutionary path.
