Hello fellow atheists,As you might have noticed, I deleted my blog. To show this was not out of rage, or indignation I would like to shortly explain myself. Jim the Atheist posted some really poignant comments. I did highlight his first because I really did start the blog to get outside perspectives. His comments were what I started the blog for! I just own my own perspective and it is far from perfect. And, although I'm not as far gone as Jim suggested, his points were definitely valid.I spend…See More
"Thanks for friending me. I had read the previous reply where you told me to stop wasting my time on you, and so this is a pleasant surprise. Your willingness to remain diplomatic for a very long time is worthy of…"
"@ Jim the Atheist:
I was under the impression I got your message already. Apparently you do not think so. For you to start underlining your disapproval hammers the point home, but one opinion is just one opinion. I try my best to weigh my choices.…"

Thanks for friending me. I had read the previous reply where you told me to stop wasting my time on you, and so this is a pleasant surprise. Your willingness to remain diplomatic for a very long time is worthy of commendation.

That looks like a really neat little place. If I'm ever in the Netherlands I hope to a swing by there.
