It's noon, and I'm typing this from my bed. Sleeping in is underrated. :-P
Humanhey you're preaching to the choir... no, scratch that! What I mean to say is, you're talkin' to an insomniac here. So, I know what you mean about sleep. I'm going to bed now. :)

The one person who gave birth to me comments publicly on my facebook profile on my "thank you for all the birthday wishes"-post I made the day after my birthday, that she had not seen my birthday coming up...am I too sensitive or is that just a bit off?
moanareinaYeah Roz, only that my biological mum has other disorders...not a Christian...Thank you FreeThinkerNZ

Deidre32Your off meter is spot on. May I ask? Did you reply or just going to leave it be?
Jul 27 2014 11:02
moanareinaNo Deidre, I tend to just leave her comments except sometimes when they really hit some sort of stupid I can't leave alone...because she already thinks I am too sensitive and take things too hard and am judgmental etc. Can't deal with that shit somehow because there comes so much emotion from her when I try to nicely address things.

Just had a great night watching 90's movies with my girlfriend. I forgot how much I love Dave Chappelle!
Deidre32Lol that's great! Dave Chapelle is awesome! :)

frustrated at my lack of references for any jobs I apply for. I'm not a shitty worker but just don't develop networking relationships with my co-workers. Nothing to make a personal feel completely worthless like not having references.
Deidre32Have you done any volunteer work or have any bosses from past jobs that would help you out? It will work out.

ImperialblueHang in there Zephie! :-D You sound like you sincerely care about what you do, and I'm sure you have a lot to offer. "If at first you don't succeed try try again."

Cicero “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to t...
Attended a Recovering from Religion meeting today. Totally awesome!!!
Deidre32That sounds very interesting!
Jul 26 2014 09:51
bfuddledAww I'm jealous! I wish there were some in my area.
Jul 27 2014 12:55
moanareinaOh, I imagine that to be fun.

Yes, Christ Rebellion has finished the writing stage. Saving up for an editor. Time till drop? Tentatively I am hoping Christmas.
Deidre32That's really great. How long did it take you to write it? Just curious.
Jul 26 2014 03:02
zomberinaIt's been done for 3 months. So, about 7 months since I cannot dedicate myself to 100% writing. :( Should have gotten done in 3 months and finished editing by now.
Jul 26 2014 03:55
Deidre32Well congrats! :)

I realize that my attempt to see god in an nontraditional way was wrong, and that I am in fact an atheist.
moanareinaIt is weird when you end up there but it also feels good to finally just be real with it. At least that's how I feel and I too was trying to find a way to relate to God in a non traditional way just to find that I am better off to stop that quest and just be what I am...an atheist.
Jul 26 2014 01:56
atkegarThanks to both of you. Of course, certain forms of Liberal Xtianity are based on nontradional views of god. Now to extract myself from organized religion.
Jul 26 2014 02:02
Deidre32But, you make a good point. Maybe when we're so used to a religion as a part of our lives, the thoughts of there being no god is a daunting thought, so you try to search for any other form of a god that might seem possible.

Well, I saw a dear friend yesterday who's known me for years. I told her about this site, and a friendship offline, that I'm thinking of abandoning. Her reply was...''you're still abandoning ship I see.'' We talked and she told me that I need to stop running away the minute someone disagrees with me. If I'm honest, it's the main reason I'm afraid of marriage, and fight against it as I do. I like this site, and if I don't like what one person says, I...
FweethawtYou didn't "DO" anything. We just know good people when we sees'em. :-)

Deidre32Hugs <3 backatcha!

HumanI can't seem to read the rest of the story, but I'm glad you found the resolve to stay. Your contribution to this site is certainly noticeable and adds variety. Yours is definitely one of the more colorful personalities. You seem to know the art of 'friendly' challenge, and other people could learn a lesson from you in that regard.

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it with religious conviction. -- Blaise Pascal
TrueFreedomDid Pascal say that? Oh, the irony!
Jul 25 2014 10:51
bfuddledExactly! I liked the quote by itself, but the fact that HE said it makes it even better.
Jul 25 2014 11:52
milesawaythe irony's thick with this one, isn't it?

Whats up with people leaving the board? Stop it!

Ancient history is both a relief and a fright. Read about events at periods of the past, and you realize that today's chaos and atrocities could be much worse. But then, you realize that yes, things could get much worse.
gallAssuming you can believe a word of that ancient history written for thousands of years by the victors and winners of war and conquest... I doubt very much we will ever truly know our real ancient history.

All of my mom's friends and family (including me) totally lied to her over the past month. She was overwhelmed by the surprise birthday party last Sunday. :-)
RozDid you go to confession afterwards? Because lying made baby jesus cry :(
Jul 25 2014 11:27
Cousin RickyConfess? To the same pastor who was in on the scam?
Jul 25 2014 03:07
TrueFreedomSweet! Great job!
Jul 25 2014 03:58
You just never know, do you... until you do
bfuddledAnd usually when you do know it seems so obvious.
Jul 25 2014 12:14
TrueFreedomBut can you ever really know, 100%, objectively, with absolute certainty?
Jul 25 2014 03:59
gallwho cares about objectivity??? I doubt a human any human has ever really been objective, just subjective with a broader outcome :)
