RE: coexist sticker pisses me off.
I would rather see a coexist sticker than a Jesus fish or an anti-abortion one, or a Bible verse, or a God is my co-pilot kind of thing.

At least "coexist" is asking that you allow others their beliefs.

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

But shouldn't atheism be represented as well? If people truly want to coexist peacefully and keep open minds, they'd include non-believers too.

I also understand what you mean about noticing things now more than you used to. I haven't believed in anything for about a decade, but I never called myself an atheist until a short time ago. It's also why people close to me would ask why I care so much now when I never even talked about it before; They were confused that I was questioning.

I think that there ARE kinds of "stages" when we begin to openly admit to being and embrace atheism. Stuff that we once kept inside, but was there for quite sometime just building steam, is now overboiling; We have these pent up feelings of frustration and I don't know about YOU but I feel alienated and that's why I get annoyed.

I consider myself more positive than most closest to me, but it's hard to see the happy, "can't we all just get along?" message when we don't see most religious people as understanding of other's difference in beliefs.

LET IT OUT; THE FACT THAT THIS PISSES YOU OFF ISN'T HURTING ANYONE. You have the right to express your opinion Smile

Lol...there's no "A" in Coexist.
Shocking WHAT?! I thought I KNEW my ABCs!!! I'm so lost now...

My point was that it's not "all-inclusive." It's still excludes others, so therefore it is not exactly encouraging "coexistence."

Cool

RE: coexist sticker pisses me off.
I made one once that I really liked but before I could produce it on a shirt... I fucked up and dumped the file it was in. Lost a bunch of great secular shit in one dumb ass move. Dodgy

It's all I have left of that one. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

I was in construction and have plenty of hammers...framing, sledge...not to mention nails and fasteners. I think nowdays a nice cordless drill with Tapcon screws would do the trick nicely. Ah, shit! How about a nailgun? Yeah, yeah...a nailgun Evil_monster

Yeah, uh huh ... got anything more newsworthy to report? Drinking Beverage

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I've got a Ramset gun & some 3" nails w/washers. No need for a compressor that way.
