What you're describing here is Secular Humanism, in a nutshell.

Yeah that's why I said those rules don't necessarily have to come from anywhere, my theism stops at the beginning, as it were. Everything else is just too complicated.

Acceptance is a hell of a drug.

RE: Uh... Hi!
Feel free to start a thread on it. Here you just get a lot of welcomes, it's the intro thread. Maybe the "ask an atheist" section would be good.

And - welcome. Looking forward to hearing more. Drinking Beverage

RE: Uh... Hi!
When did the intro section become somewhere we can't discuss someone's beliefs? I would think that discussion about a specific persons specific beliefs belongs as much in that persons intro than anywhere.

I'm not pointing fingers, but this attitude that the intro section is somehow protected has evolved over the last year, and it just doesn't make sense to me. It's my opinion that this thread is the most logical place to find out about the OPs beliefs. It is, after all, supposed to be a thread ABOUT Noric.

SORRY! Damn, tried to read the rules and browse some threads beforehand, but what are you gonna do. I'd edit if it wouldn't throw the replies out of context. I'm already discussing things like this in the appropriate sections/threads.

RE: Uh... Hi!
I think that no attacks are a nice thing for an introduction...but I don't see questions as attacks.

A long string of welcome, hi, etc. is kind of boring.

But we peons were recently told that only welcome is allowed in the intro section...and for some reason, we obeyed for a change. Wink

Anywho....welcome again new guy! Glad you are here and would like to get to know you better. You have done absolutely nothing wrong. Big Grin
