And Blue Lightning is nice, wise, pithy and sociable, but I cannot personally vouch for his singing.

Oh I can. He's a belter, wonderful memory for tunes.

He also said if the proposal to make our road a highway bypass came to pass, and the compensation was inadequate, to call him.

Very reassuring. A friend in need. We moved in time.

Heh, I can vouch for BL's singing too - he is a purveyor of many a fine karaoke tune.
And yes, as has been pointed out by GM, the Mods are here to help.

I'm cool with being challenged about my ideas, but yeah your welcome is kinda ominous. I'm here because I'm an atheist and you guys seem to be accepting so i thought it would be a good place to interact with people who i can tell i'm a transgender women but they wont lose their shit, I'm new to this and i thought it would be good for me to get myself out there in place that's easy going.
Nah, Geoff is a real pussy-cat.

One of the great tricks I have learned in life is not to be too emotionally invested in an idea or belief. If you can manage that [yes I know it is hard], then you reap enormous benefits. Your beliefs and opinions are not you. therefore when someone points out something is wrong with a belief or opinion, you don't take it personally. The reward is intellectual honesty, which in the age of Trump, is more valuable than gold.

Religions have sold the fallacy that belief or faith in something somehow promotes it to truth. if that were true, mere wishing could make us millionaires, or be able to fly without wings, or jump to the moon.

I have come up with some of the stupidest, silliest ideas ever on this forum. Mostly, I take my lumps when the errors of my ways have been pointed out to me, and I am better for it. For one thing, no more delusions about gods. I am now me, not a god-puppet. That is liberating.

The least idiotic thing about me is my love for science. Knowing a bit of science even makes me appear a little smart sometimes.
Where was I? Oh yes, welcome LG, and enjoy!
