I've been following your discussion that seemed to be the talk of the town for awhile. Honestly, I was quite amused to follow that thread. I don't tend to judge people until I've had my own experience talking with them, and you were no exception. Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question with a lot of helpful bits of info and advice. I really do appreciate it. While I'm still a little confused about who you are and what you stand for, I do know you helped me. And that's awesome. :)

Chris,

 

If you are going to be posting a lot, you need to use the reply button below people's posts, not the one for the original comment. It makes following the discussion difficult.

Hey man, it's great to have an atheist friend from columbia! I lived there for a while and always found myself in the minority.
