I've been atheist for close to 25 years. I do fine. But that's me.Great post. I do know btw. I was an atheist up to three and a half years ago. My brother and many of my ex friends are also atheists.
That was after spending the first 17 years of my life raised as and the a performing, pagan. All up I was an atheist longer than the other two combined and I was forced then led by my damaged psyche, to be pagan and I didn't like it, I'll just leave it there.
Yeah, and I do agree. Sometimes in this venue of text and delayed replies, it is easy to expect or assume a response or position.It's never good to assume anything about people. Especially ones you know nothing about.
We usually put a brief description out there and then the person on the other side of the screen has to somewhat fill in the missing or empty spots.
I don't think we (posters) do it on purpose to be an irritant, necessarily(some do, however).
