I say Chevy, you say Ford.
I say apartment, you say house.
I say Christianity, you say atheism.
I say conservatism, you say liberalism.
Lets think for a moment if we were to truly live and let live..............now that's a concept. Build off that model. I have friends/relationships with all that I've listed above and get along with everyone of them. That's living the dream.
I've met some people, to whom I mention any batman movies before the Christian Bale ones, and their jaws seize up, and they go all rigid, and speak in a sort of tongue, then go:"those...never...happened."
and I promptly drop the subject.
I'm aware some people have a fondness for them, but most nerds I've met are vehemently against them, and instead follow only the path of Christian Bale's Batman, and no other.
Of course, they are often my-age nerds, who were wee bratlings when the Michael Keaton Bats came onscreen, so Christian Bale is -our- Batman, in a sense.
I still think his batman voice sounds like he's trying to sound like he's a chain smoker.
I'm waiting for someone to be horribly offended with me comparing nerdery to religion.
But...the parallels! Oh the parallels! They're all there and no one sees them! Argh!
I dont care what car I have, as long as it's a good car. and yes...I know a lot about cars as well.
apartment, house...what does it matter? it depends what you can afford to live in.
you say Christianity? why not any other religion? I dont beleive in any of it, but I certainly dont hate anyone who does.
I'm not a conserative, or a liberal. I have NO lables.
if you want to live and let live, maybe you shouldn't post something that will provoke ill will on an atheist website when you are not an atheist. also, maybe you should see who the real hateful people are.
people will always be afraid of what they can not understand. ignorance breeds fear. fear causes anger, anger leads to hate and hate leads to death.
I don't say Ford. Henry Ford was a raging anti-Semite. His company can go bankrupt for all i care. You say Chevy, I say Chevy. The Volt is a great car. Should turn things around and seriously help us in the fight to get off oil (Sorry, Rush Limbaugh).
I don't say house either. I say apartment. I live in New York City. We don't have houses. We have townhouses, but that's something totally different...
I don't say Atheism or Liberalism. I say be an individual and stop identifying yourself with labels like Christian, Conservative, Chevy and Apartment. It's collectivist and defeats the purpose of having your own ideas and living your own life, which I am happy to let you do, as long as you don't go making stupid posts like this one that attempt to put words in everybody's mouths. Cheers! :)
