Lol, "Pastor Johnny Hunt" runs that church. I remember being forced to go there when I was very young.
No college for me yet. Though knowledge is a passion of mine, I love to self-educate. I'm a bit of a dork, I own multiple college books in various subjects; mostly medical and biology. I actually plan on staying around here. The climate is very nice and they crazy "followers" don't scare me much. Plus, there isn't a lot to do around here so having them debate with me and watching their reactions to things they get stumped on is always fun.
And yes, Dinosaurs was pretty awesome. I haven't seen it in a long time, brings back memories.
Don't really do much with photography, just too much time to mess around with photoshop.:)
And it's worse than bad around here. It's almost scary really, but I do like to travel to Atlanta every now and again to get away from it. I live about 5 miles away from a literal "Jesus Dome". Not many atheists around here, none within a decent radius that I know of anyhow.
Haha xD I do like fem-slash but good ones are rather hard to find. The guy-slash community usually has waaaaay better writers but they sometimes do write the occasional fem-slash which I enjoy reading~ I tend to stick to reading stuff from my favourite writers and their recs. I like reading Pansy/Astoria from the Harry Potter fandom, actually I like reading Pansy/anyone xD Her voice in fanfiction is ♥
I "deconverted" about eight months ago. I was actually a pagan before that, and a Roman Catholic before that. I was talking with my fiance one day and realized that I was basically saying, "Your Abrahamic god? So irrational. But my ancient Celtic deities, which have no more evidence than the Abrahamic god for existing? Totally real."
As soon as I caught the hypocrisy of it all, I renounced all gods and started identifying as an atheist. (I also felt a little sick inside because I hate hypocrisy more than just about anything else.)
I'll definitely be looking forward to your performance when you find the time to post it up and thanks for the add! =)
I definitely like comedians who don't mind making fun if themselves. The best ones are usually the ones who have the guts to make a fool out of themselves~ I've always admired that about comedians, it takes alot of balls to do that in my opinion. Its different when it around a group of friends compared to in front of an audience full of strangers, I think to much about what others might think of me. Probably a result from being raised having to always "behave" around others.
I kinda got used to the funny looks. I'd just mostly ignore them and eventually the people I meet tend to stop looking surprised and sorta join in xD
You do standup? Thats awesome! Mind linking me to one of your acts? I wouldn't mind expanding my list of comics I listen to~ I like British comedians the best. People like Dara O'Briain, Marcus Brigstocke and Frankie Boyle never fail to cheer up my day =D Do you have a fave comedian?
Can I add you as a friend? Im new here so it'd be nice to expand my circle abit =)
I know a few things about that, but i like that in US is a much serious movement against this. And you have a Constitution on your side.
Also Romania got secularised in 1863 by A.I. Cuza, which was incredibly good for economy. Depossesion of church's wealth and lands speed up developement until... well, until '47(comunists took over). After the revolution in 89 somehow people forgot that. Now the Church is involved in businesses like, stock holdings at the nuclear power plant. :)) it was a scandal for a short period.
Here is a documentary with english subtitles if you ever have some time on your hands. It's pretty shocking but gives you an ideea on how they can easily become organised crime on the expense of people gulability. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMGz7yVasWo
hi ! thanks for the approach, i have been wandering around the network but i haven't taken the courage so far to comment along with others. i think my english is a little rusty.
yes, you are right, but eastern european are believed to be even more religious. statistics would show my country above average, which is true. Tragically. I have no real hope for a secularism in my state. it's not that people are so fanatic about religion, it's mostly because it works so well for some politic parties, especially in elections. Religion is tax-free so you can figure out the rest... :)
