Hey there The Wannabe, and thanks. Does that mean that everyone will consider me their chum? Will see you around friend
I will consider you my chum if you promise never to mention Pascal's Wager. Upon that event happening, our chumness is terminated.
Welcome to the forum chum.
Hope you get your satisfaction of heated debate, raucous conversation, rum and saucy wenches. Just don't forget that our wenches are actually the most literate and educated wenches you will ever meet and will argue you into the dust
Oh and watch out for MagicMiles, he's a bit of a masochistic theist. He's left two or three times now, and just keeps on coming back for more.
My advice would be to not put 'God bless' on the end of your posts, as it is not particularly relevant. We argue from literal truths and empiricism here, you may want to look up some common logical fallacies.
This page is your chum also. Treat it well and visit it often. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logical_fallacy

At the time of writing this you haven't been smited yet, so there's some hope there! Keep an open mind and try to take information at face value without any prejudices, and research the viewpoints for yourself rather than relying on what we tell you or your church tells you.
Hope to see you around the boards. PM me if you get stuck or want any help.
