I got dragged to a lecture and realized that atheism is now a thing and it can be discussed. It's no longer the dark secret kept hidden in the attic and fed buckets of fish heads.
When I was 13 I realized that Sunday was just an extension of the same popularity/bullying crap I hadda cope with every weekday in public school and I said no. I stayed home and read the comix while family was off worshiping some fantasy thing.
Fun ones. Art events, anything that doesn't involve me being lectured by humorless grunts or old humorless hippie activists.
I've come to believe religion is induced insanity. It teaches people to think in toxic, counterproductive ways.
Damn Scientologists are back in the park. I must do something about that. Otherwise quite entertaining, especially the ones that stay and yap on with a succession of "yeah, but what if...?" arguments that aren't so much arguments as exhibitions of ignorance and woeful lack of thinking skills. It was best for me to avoid engagement. I have a tendency (or talent) for pissing off bible thumpers and Scientologists.
