"Very true right away they become grammar police or tell you you don't understand the statement or some sort of diversion from the issue at hand. Instead of communicating and learning about your perception to try and broaden their scope."

A short while ago on Facebook, a 'friend' posted:

"If violence, wars, murders, poverty & disease could be prayed away, don't you think it would have been gone hundreds of years ago? If everything that happens is Gods will, why get upset? Why rebuild where "God" keeps destroying? And if that wasn't God, how do you tell the difference?

Welcome, Derek! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might like Recovering from Religion.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since Canada's climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

Hello Derek

Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you found out in becoming a non believer and freethinker like us.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3500 members.
