Hi, I am a 64 yr old woman who is finally free of religious skeletons. I can now without guilt call myself an Atheist.  Because of my "Christian" upbringing ,my thoughts, ideas, opinions became molded for me but not by me, as a result i have never been able to express myself very well . I now hold my own opinions which i would like to articulate on this site but so far feel intimidated with the writings, they all sound so intelligent and im impressed by the way opinions are expressed . The other day a blog on here was a guy expressing his disgust on how stupid some people are when it comes to writing their opinions without proper punctuation ,spelling etc, well i am one of those people, I feel very intelligent inside but cannot express myself well. I guess the point im trying to make is that i found this site interesting but feel very intimated to speak my mind.  For now i will just sit back and enjoy the reading.

Hi Peggy...I wouldn't worry about those that police punctuation and grammar, or the one's the WHINE ABOUT CAPITALIZED LETTERS SHOUTING AT THEM be because they are so freaking mental they can't handle bold faced type....how freaking traumatic.

Just look at it like this, if everything isn't picture perfect for perfectionists they have a hard time comprehending what you are trying to say, but that's their problem, not yours. Express yourself the best you can, any way you can, when you have the desire.

Oh, and congratulation on your escape from the dark side!
