  1. Hey, lotsa great, godly, an' trooly wunnerful advice there on how to improve my relationship with my wives.... Oh wait, that's wrong! I ain't married. Silly me!
  2. I have always enjoyed reading about the paranormal / occult / "Fortean phenomena". I'm neither a complete skeptic nor a true believer, I just find it to be entertaining.
  3. I don't think I ever really cared about "sinning". I know that I pretty much always treated others with respect. The "Golden Rule" and all that fun stuff. I never sweated the small stuff! I think that it helped that I knew a few people who were really overly concerned, to the point of obsession, about doing everything just right, and seemed to be terrified of "slipping up" and getting God angry with them. They just seemed so absolutely nuts to me! There is a word for that condition that I learned a while back -- "scrupulosity"!
  4. Hey, welcome aboard! I hope that you can disengage from your former faith as smoothly as possible. Life does improve after you have made your transition.
  5. Let's see -- I swear more, I drink, I have weird deviant sexual fantasies, I go on long bouts of rapin' an' pillagin'.... So, No! Nuthin's changed. Seriously, though -- I did the odd sexual stuff since I hit puberty. I swore a lot during high school, then stopped fer decades. Started back with cussin' when I left the church. No lightning bolts so far! I started drinking -- not too much, never been "drunk" -- after I stopped church. The weird paraphiliac desires have always been with me. I have always realized that I can't just go out and do whate
  6. You really need to stop worrying about "saving" anybody. Just do your best to live your own life, free of hindrances, especially religious ones. You can still pall around with family if you want, but you probably shouldn't do it too often.
  7. Hell, we are all in need of more "chuckle-worthy" moments, fer sure!
  8. I got a good chuckle out of it! Very stoopid.....
  9. Yeah, that's my take on the holiday, as well. Christmas is a big, expansive holiday -- people can make is as religious or as nonreligious as they like!
  10. Yeah, I had been reading that type of material since the early 1970s, but it wasn't until much later that I started palling around with people with New Age type tendencies. An interesting crowd, and likeable, but generally not very critical. Too eager to accept bullshit!
  11. Interesting! I was once a member of IONS, about twenty years ago, and would attend local meetings. I was going through a "New Age" phase at the time.
  12. I think that it is just hard for some people, especially religious conservatives, to fully comprehend that some people, even people they know pretty well, just don't have the same beliefs as they do. Even after you have told them repeatedly! Thick skulls, an' all that....
