Yeah, I guess that's how it is for most young people though.
Actually, I live with only one parent; my dad. He's Mormon, and that's what I was raised as. But luckily for me, we've never been super religious or anything. So, my Atheism is THAT big of a problem for him.

Yes, indeed. From what I've experienced, anyway.


Thanks so much for the welcome.

That there is! Of course, I also couldn't remember which email account I used to sign up... In my defense, I've got five of them.

Heh. On second thought, it's not my account. It's just I can't be arsed to remember passwords.

Yes, I'm an enigma, wrapped within a riddle ... wrapped within a flaky pastry.


I wouldn't say that I'm displeased with the situation as much as bewildered.  And I'm mostly in the Asexual group as moral support.


Give me a few months or a year, on the distance thing.  I imagine the west coast will be a good place for me to tour with the standup, if I can ever get mobile.

LoL, that's the best giggle I had today :)

Except that... you don't seemed that pleased with your situation? :(

But then again, I see you're also in the asexual's group...

However, it's definitely more productive to flirt with people who don't live
6000 km away!

Nah, go ahead and flirt.  She's my girlfriend ... sort of ... for about the next 6 months or so.  Then she's going to be wandering off out of state.

And even in the mean time, she's specifically stressing that it's an open relationship, despite the fact that she wants to be monogamous, from her side of the relationship.  The girl has more commitment issues than you can imagine.  I get a reminder from her that this is just a temporary relationship and I shouldn't get completely attached, on at least a monthly basis.

On top of that, she's actively pushing for threesomes, to help deal with my over-the-top libido.  I have a history of wearing girls out and still being ready for sex for another hour or two.  I'd make a killing in porn, if it weren't for the fact that there's really only massive demand for guys in gay porn, which wouldn't work out so well for me.  I'd say that I would also be bad for porn, since I'm ugly, but then look at Ron Jeremy.


Sorry about the confusion.  I said a while back, in one of the Atheist Singles threads, that I'm not celibate ... and I'm sort of in a relationship, but I'm sort of available.  It's complicated.

[...] My significant other's mother [...]

Well now I'm confused... seeing you in the singles group I thought you were. But now you write that... Guess I'll stop being flirtatious :P

I can't imagine living in a world of religious believe. My mom and her husband both do believe in a god and think I am off my rocker when I say things to them like "Come guys, you really don't think there is the big guy up in the sky that know everything and cares whether or not the Patroits win a bloody football game while ignoring horrible things happening in the world?" My dearest friend is a christian and I know that if her belief were to disappear her whole world would crumble and that makes me sad.

I also forgot to mention that I believe I received a very high quality education from the Catholic school I attended.  I went there K-8, then to public high school.  I realize GA is about 47 out of 50 states in education, but the public school I went to was highly ranked.  Still, a LOT of what I "learned" there was review.  Other students thought I was some brainiac or something, but to me, I was just average.  It made my report cards pretty sweet, but then again, I always got good grades even when being lazy.

Not to be insulting to you, but people seem to have some pretty ignorant views of Catholic school based solely on stereotypes and urban myths.  We didn't pray in every class, or have nuns walking around hitting us with sticks, or have priests wandering the halls with their dicks out.  Maybe in earlier generations, but not when I went.  Catholic school is SCHOOL first, and Catholic second.  While certainly the majority of teachers and students were Catholic, we had students and teachers of many religions, mostly other Christian religions, but not always.


Just like any other school, we had completely non-religious classes including history/social studies, English (which for us was a grammar only class), reading (which was a literature only class), math, science, and specials such as P.E., music, art, etc.  Sometimes we talked about religion in those classes, especially in music because we learned religious songs, but it's not like my education was side tracked by papally prescribed bullshit.  We learned how old the earth really was, we learned evolution (though they did try to combine religion with it by saying God made evolution happen), heliocentrism, sexual reproduction, and all those other things that most people would think are forbidden.


We had ONE 45 minute religion class a day.  We had a book that would bring up a social topic, a moral issue, a notable deed by another Christian and would teach how it was similar to something in the Bible, or how we could be better Christians by following the example, or what the church's official stance was and what we thought about it. 


I can't speak for all Catholic schools, but from other people in my age group and younger that I know went to Catholic schools, they're much less brainwashy than people think.  "Christian schools," on the other hand, might be different.

CCD and Catholic school aren't really related. We still learned grammar, literature, history, science, math, vocabulary, etc., and open discussion was very much encouraged, especially in the humanities.

Hi Joe

My parents were raised Catholic but left that church when I was too young to remember. Something happen with one of the priest but have yet to hear the full story of that. Later, in my early teens my dad had a bright idea to become Episcopal for a brief time while he worked out his guilt from an affair (LOL). Religion was never something in the forefront of growing up. I was baptized but my children are not. Religions to me has always, since early memory, just stories like Lord of the Rings, good story but totally unbelievable.

I pretty much love everything NPR does--humor, non-humor, and the local programming of my city's little NPR member station. WWDTM is definitely one of my favorites though!

Yeah, that's Adrian. Hell of a nose on him, so it kinda looks like a thumb.

Wow that's funny and its also what I hear from majority of god loving twits on a day to day. Sarcasm is grand indeed.

Yep, they're Roman Catholic. It's just so annoying how they keep pestering me on going to church and keep sending me Jesus cards.
