Hello, I was here years ago....

#1  Postby Stagman » May 20, 2021 8:22 pm

Hello. I was a mildly active member here up to 10 years ago. Apparently I checked in in 2017 but have no recollection of that...
Anyway, 10 years ago I was abruptly removed from society due to a prolonged hospital stay of 6 months thanks to a rapidly deteriorating health. Were it not for the extremely lucky chance to have a double lung transplant, I would not have seen out the year 2011. Interesting how ones outlook on life can change when faced with such experiences.
I don't think I will bother anymore with discussions regarding religion - talking to walls seems to have similar outcomes in my opinion.
Reckon I will lurk in the shadows reading posts/threads for a short while to acclimatise.

I remember you, fella :) Welcome back.

It sounds like you have had quite a harrowing time of it! Double lung.. wow.

I remember your username, but don't remember if we interacted. It sounds like you had a life-changning event, I'm glad you got through it. I've long since become bored arguing about religion, or having anything to do with any of that, debunking or whatever. I may as well argue about mother goose tales. Learning about the Earth and universe is time better spent. Welcome back! :)
