Hi everyone. I don't really know what to say at this point as I am a bit shy, but I'll add to this as time goes by.

Well the reason why I am shye is because I am not an atheist like you lot, so I think you're going too probably attack me at every opportunity. Maybe this isn't the forum for me.

No one should attack you for being a theist. There isn't anything wrong with being a theist, just be a reasonable theist :D

We talk about a lot of stuff and we aren't all atheists. You can have lots of fun here and steer clear of the religious discussions.

Welcome to Ratskep. I hope you decide to stay :cheers:

Welcome. We welcome you to our oasis of clear thinking. Let your thoughts flow. Ooh! Careful, that's the philosophy section. Its waters run quite deep and strange creatures lurk there. Do you like movies or computer games? Do you collect fish? Are you a person of "elderly persuasions"? We have places for all kinds of chatter and discourse. Please, make yourself at home. Have a look around. Here are your complimentary robe and sandals. Enjoy.

Welcome Pru, take a look around, see what you might like to talk about, or just lurk.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

I don't know. I just get the feeling that I'm going to be screamed at. I've seen how you treat theists and I think it's a pattern that will repeat itself. I wish it was more balanced around here, not so judgmental, you get me.

I have some old fashioned views too, which won't go down well. A lot of screaming will ensue and I don't know if I want to get into all that, you get me.

People should learn to get along no matter what their views, as long as their heart is in the right place. I hate conflict and I try to avoid it all the times, you get me.

Hi Prudence, you get me.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Your ideas may get treated roughly if you choose to present any, but you won't be attacked, just them.

But that's the same. We identify with our views. Attack the view, and you attack the person. This is why people have arguments. You have to respect views, and learn to understand them, that's how people gett along, a

Really? How would one ever learn anything if they felt personally attacked when told/shown they were incorrect?
