I know you live your mom, but we know she's wrong. This year I've had some really bad times and not once did I ever entertain the thought of prayer or happy vibes. I guess a part of me has come to grips with my atheism.

You know what? I felt better when I realized that. No gods ever came to mind this year during my low points.

So in a way, I felt better with no gods then I did when I prayed as a theist.

I was a bit offended when she said it. I usually don't say anything when the subject of religion comes up in our house.

I've had some huge low-points in my life (panic attacks to the degree that I was calling 911 or even, and thankfully never did anything, wanting to commit suicide). I feel those are some very low-points, and not once did god enter the picture.

In a sense my atheism is the reason for all my anxiety, but in the end it's been for the better. The world may be scary and less disney-like sans belief, but now it is more real and beautiful, and at the very least I've made leaps and bounds in progress with my anxiety with the help of doctors and medication, as opposed to absolutely nothing from prayer.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

I speak out of experience when I tell your mother:

RE: Ranting corner
Payroll girl I share an office with...and do her work for her.Dodgy

Since June she has actually worked a full 80 hours in a two week period exactly twice. I stopped looking back at that point. She is a salaried employee and draws full pay.

In the last couple months her number of hours at work have become less and less. She is late at least 4 days out of five.

This week -
Monday - an hour late - no real reason specified.
Tuesday - an hour plus late - claimed power was out at home.
Wednesday - text that she will be in later, has toothache, didn't show up at all.
Thursday - supposed followup with dentist, didn't show up at all
Today - was at ER with abdominal pains last night (she is a couple months pregnant) and woke up with a migraine today, didn't come in at all.

Me - there on time every day. Took a lunch break of twenty minutes on two days of the week, none on the other days. Asked to leave an hour early Wednesday because son's car broke down and he was stranded - allowed to leave but not before it being made clear that it wasn't acceptable.

Um. Who's her supervisor? 'Cos (s)he's failing hard. Any luck with finding another job? Sorry this unfair situation is continuing...

Well if you listened to Uncle Muffs you wouldn't have this problem.
But you know whatever, listening to everyone else. It's not like I've never dealt with management or shitty work colleagues or anything before...

Nearly impossible to job hunt when I can't ever leave the office. Undecided

RE: Ranting corner
So... If you read verses out of the bible, and you tell some so and so you just met that it was another religion's sayings, but then you tell them the truth, HOW does so and so being surprised make them automatically Christian? Because (label)=A hole or not that? OK! Apply it to the other religion? NO? That's mean?
