I'm going to posit the notion, he said pompously after doing a spell check on the word posit. This is probably going to put my balance at the bank of karma way in the red, but I'm a glutton for punishment.
I came here as an atheist, but have been turned off it, not because I've found God, or am anti science, but there's just something about the 'thinking atheist' attitude that leaves me cold.
There are two things one could do when faced with a person who's into astrology and crystals and the like: You could say, there's a person who isn't harming anyone, and is trying to find happiness in something that may not be logical, and allow them to go on their way unmolested, or you could throw stones at them and call them weirdo and cackle like young boys with the local oddball.
And here's my theory: Most social networking chat thingies have an even split of male and female - in fact if anything the chat thing appeals more to the female than the male, but the atheists on here seem mostly to be male.
Now you can give lots of clever justifications for why you're here, but might it just be a case of boys down the local tip taking great pleasure in smashing up a telly? Didn't you do enough vandalising and bullying as boys, and are feeling a bit undernourished in that department? Because it sure can look like that at times.
By the way I've come to this one dressed up like Ned Kelly.
