The whole point of Lent is sacrifice - to symbolically give up something, presumably something beloved or cherished.

But Lent is also mainly a liturgical season/penitential season come up with by the Catholics. It's not exactly endorsed by Calvinism with smells and bells and cheers of great joy...

Hmmm... But you didn't say that you're "not NOT an atheist"... so I don't think this guy can be trusted with a council seat. I think we have here what's called a "Schrodinger's Theist".

We just don't know where he stands until observed.

Consider

Also- this thing about denial of meetings with the Russians... is proving to be a pattern of sort of outright lies by other individuals...

Consider

I call for careful consideration by the council members before voting to approve this one.

But in that case, wouldn't every theist be a Schrodinger's theist? How can we truly observe a relationship with God that atheists hold not to exist? Consider Also, the Russian thing is to just re-assure those who have seen person after person involved in certain other campaigns end up revealing their ties. My closest ties to Russia are the following: A friend was a foreign exchange student to Yaroslavl shortly about a decade after the fall of the Soviet Union. She does speak Russian, but I do not. Tongue

But I guess if the Council wants to prayerfully consider my asking to be voted into KC's slot as the Christian representative of the Council, I should accede to their knowledge, guided by what is good and what is holy...

Need to think of a witty signature.

I'm skeptical for different reasons than everyone else. I think you've been atheist a while now and just don't want to admit it Tongue

Hmmm... I've only seen a couple other guys recently so vehemently deny meeting with the Russians... and look where they are now! Blink

And you are right about theists! That's a really good point! I think we should be skeptical that theists even exist at all, since we cannot observe their relationships with their respective God! Ohmy

Denial? Who is denying Comrade Emma? There are no denials, there are only AlternativeAffirmations!

(Funny enough, following that cat-communism thing in one of the funny pic threads the other day, a colleague and I discussed whether they'd let us have an office cat, and then could we name it Chairman Meow?)

RE: So... I made the leap to atheism.
I don't believe anyone is an atheist until I've actually witnessed them eating a baby. It's best to be safe.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: So... I made the leap to atheism.
I sure hope this is true.

Because when all meet for the big party in hell, it just won't be quite the same if KC isn't there with us. Tongue

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.
