I find it fascinating and sad that so many of my fellow African Apes are in this the 21st Century willing to live a faith based existence. I am sad that many of my friends require a celestial master to make their life worth living. It saddens me that people I know can be 'young earth creationists', most of them unashamedly so. That the parents of these our brothers and sisters have seen fit to lie to their offspring - to disillusion them and in my mind perversely instill in them a feeling of guilt and inadequacy simply for being alive, its unforgivable.

That said it is refreshing to find a site where like-minded individuals who (presumably) share a common view of this wonderful, breathtaking, fleeting moment of existence we are privileged to enjoy can trade views without reproach.

 

Go well and be Safe,

 

Mauri

Hi Mauri,  I've only been here about a month, but I'm glad I found this place. You are right, it IS refreshing to 'meet' like-minded people.  I like what you said about life being a "wonderful, breathtaking, fleeting moment of existence we are privileged to enjoy", very poetic and true!! :)
Thank you booklover... enjoy the nexus.
Hey from Alabama! Welcome. And yeah, that young Earth thing, isn't China older than that?
You blasphemer you ;)
Thanks!
