Well actually I suspect it is not too quiet. I think this will be a good place to let 30 years of Atheist thoughts come spewing out. Fortunately most of my friends have no faith or its no big deal. Which I am finding that is somewhat unusual but I have had 30 years to find them.
My father was a baptist preacher so some of know you will know where I am coming from. We did get to a point where we agreed to disagree after many long nasty fights. Funny he was a little more pliable after he went to brainwashing school... Maybe he learned to only prey on the lost and I WASN'T LOST there was always a little bit of hope on his side though. He died two years ago. I miss him I think he would have enjoyed the Electric car that I built. He missed that part when I left home at 16 because I didn't want to go to church any more.
My mother loves me for who I am. She just ignores that I have no faith. She is a truly loving person. I just wish I could get her away from that brainwashing faither that she sees on Sunday and Wednesday. He keeps taking an old widows money. The lamb getting fleeced.
I normally stay to myself most of the time. Although the Republican party is starting to get me concerned. Their concept of politics is worse than I have seen in years. The inelegance of the candidates leaves a lot to be desired They all make Nixon look like saints. The hate for President Obama is way over the top. The hate coming from faithers is much worse than I have ever seen. Its almost as it they are being lead by their own worst nightmare their antichrist and they don't see it.
I am not saying I believe in a antichrist. I do believe that a person could impersonate one or make a nation believe that there is one. Fear, hate and ignorance are powerful tools the faither leadership have been using them for thousands of years. Now the republicans have figured it out.
So I have become concerned and starting to get more active. I hope this is just the beginning.
