Hello From The Grand Canyon State!

#1  Postby Dr. Vu » Feb 03, 2013 9:31 pm

Hello everyone! In my life I have been a Lutheran, a non-denominational Christian, a Jain, and an avid fan of Sylvia Browne. Luckily, George Carlin and Thomas Paine set me straight and I am now an agnostic atheist.

Thomas Paine and George Carlin combine to make an awesome path to removing religious nonsense!

Welcome! :cheers:
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.
