Old dogma, new text

Hi there.

 I'm relatively new to the RRS pages and am glad to have found them. I know I'm not alone in my beliefs but it sure feels like it sometimes. (What? YOU are a catholic? Practicing? REALLY?) Just last month I was prostheletised by a man studying to be a preacher through "distance learning". It was a little like trying to push back a donkey, just getting him to leave me alone. I only got any sympathy from folks at work because he was rather a Know-It-All in ALL subjects, and therefore annoyed just about everyone else.

Anyway, to introduce myself, I'm almost 40, married to a wonderful woman who doesn't NOT believe in a god/goddess/supreme being of some sort and am a stubborn ol' agnostic with atheistic tendencies. ("Well, if there IS a god, I know it ain't like YOURS".) And, I like to capitalise and use quotations a lot. Hey, just be glad I'm on the wagon with the smilies!

Read you soon!

Hi. Welcome to the forum.

Hi. Welcome to the forum.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

Hey, welcome!

I'll see if I can't shake that last little vestige of "maybe there could be some sort of 'God-critter' out there", you damn Agnostic!
