I somehow doubt you needed me to tell you that --
I hope I don't offend anyone, but I find religion and the religious to be positively frightening!
You won't being offending anyone here and you certainly aren't alone in that sentiment.
Tiffany I'm very interested in your use of the metaphor "impossibly resistant to the religion germ", I have many times felt the same way and in my teen years found myself having to synthesize and almost force myself to believe. I did occasionally hallucinate some supernatural feeling but was forever having to convince myself until just letting my education and understanding of science and reality supercede the bs. I wonder how many more our there identify with the "germ resistant" metaphor?
Welcome, you're a free thinker, I think you're going to be just fine.
Lol... Speaking of praying...
My girlfriend called me on her lunch today and while we were talking was at a stop where she could not see at all if someone was coming. So she quipped before she tried going, "Maybe I'll pray that no cars are coming and pull out. No wait, last time this happened and I prayed, I pulled out and a hit a school bus...."
Nobody was hurt though at all, it was a low speed area. And there were no kids in the bus.
I tell ya... the power of prayer I tell ya.
LMAO no.... that was a good one haha!
Awesome play on words. I'm still laughing out loud :-P
