"Hang in there.  I was raised Christian but I kept laughing thinking they were referring to some sort of 'inside joke' .  Loved the family and friends but I apparently was born without the 'faith' gene.  Lynchburg,…"

"At this point in my life (mid-fifties)  I am completely grounded in my understanding of the origins of matter, man, and the romance of religion. If people need a crutch to deal with reality I cannot fault them for that. Acceptance of our finite…"
