Greetings From Shaffy
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:45:01 PM »
Greetings everyone,
I am a young atheist whose father was teaching basic points of interests for atheists. He asked me why don't amputees grow their legs/arms back. I said " Im sure a couple have." I recently looked it up in google and found this amazing site. I am extremely excited to start posting here and listening to so many discussions. I've already found it so fascinating seeing the many posts. It's been rough being young and having many religious friends. I feel like I have a comfortable place to talk about my thoughts.I'd love to get know you all  :D

We humans may never figure out the truth, but I prefer trying to find it over pretending we know it.

Is that Shaffy or Shaft? ;)

Welcome, not much of an intro.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Welcome Shaffy.

As an old guy, I should warn you that you will be enduring believers your whole life. On the bright side, being right makes it a little easier.

You will always have religious friends. Generally speaking, changing the subject is usually wiser than arguing all the time.

Except here. Our religious friends at WWGHA love to talk shop. For whatever reason, they seem to love being the fish being shot in a barrel. Why they make it so easy, I'll never know. Having nothing to work with probably contributes, but I'd think they would put up more of a fight.

But we have fun. Stick around and have some with us.

Hiya Shaffy. Welcome to the party.  :)

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

Hope you have fun here

Welcome Shaffy.
Good point. I think not spending your whole life waiting for a next one means we make the most of this one.
Enjoy your time here.
