although I am surely not as well educated as some here, obviously, and I have a limited knowledge of both science and scripture. I assure you that will not stop me from spouting off
I live in north central Oklahoma , (admins will notice that my IP realizes back to Texas) smack in the middle of Jesus land
it's like being behind enemy lines or something. I don't just hate religious people,I work with some doozies ,.Southern baptists, a Mormon ,.Pentecostal holiness (the kind that flop around on the floor speaking in tongues). and for the most part they are good people who in 20 years there have refrained from trying to save me (I do keep my beliefs to myself ,. a survival technique) there is a born againer there,.he is most annoying,.ex drug hippie who came to the lord,.blah blah blah
I was born into Irish Catholosism but my father left the fold when I was 10, I have never had the "faith" , it's just not part of who I am, it just always seemed silly to me is the only way I can explain it.
as of late what with our little crusade in the middle east (and if you don't think the thumpers view it that way you are not talking to them the way I am) I have come to see that the push for the theocroisation ,.theocization?,..(spell check is not helping me with this one
) is at the strongest I've seen in my 52 years and that disturbs me greatly, I feel that people who love and trust in our constitution need to be stepping up now more than ever to protect our seperation clause or we may well lose it
so any way,.I came across this place while on a google search started reading and was quite entertained by the posting and thought I'd join
