I know we use this forum to rally against the opponents of science and reason and for good reason. But I wanted to blog, just for a minute, about our community, because I think it, and you all, are friggin' awesome.
I'm kind of going through a rough time. Oh, no, don't worry... nothing that dramatic. Just a hiccup in the road we call life. But it's been tough and stressful and reasonably so. Money's really tight, work is hard to come by, blah blah blah, nothing we haven't heard before.
But here's the thing. As much as my religious friends mean well ("Don't worry, God will help you"), my freethinking atheist friends... PEOPLE I HAVE NEVER MET IN PERSON... have told me "Hey, man, what do you need? I'm in the same boat you are but maybe we can network and work together."
That's not a knock on religious people (this time) but just showing how great we as a community look out for each other.
Thank you not only to everyone who's helped me but to anyone in our little community who's helped another one of us.
Together, we can make a change for the better.
