Hi everyone!

I'm Mellony and I just wanted to pop my head in and say hello!  I'm glad there is a place for me to meet like minded people.  I live in the bible belt and everyone I know is a xian.  In fact when I "came out" on Facebook, I lost 3 "friends". 

 

Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Anarchism is the only philosophy which brings to man the consciousness of himself; which maintains that God, the State, and society are non-existent, that their promises are null and void, since they can be fulfilled only through man's subordination. Anarchism is therefore the teacher of the unity of life; not merely in nature, but in man.

I just came out as a .... megalomaniacal antideiist, among other things, and lost no friends... sometimes it's the people you surround yourself with, or have come to associate with. Make good friends, and make sure to surround yourself in good company.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Hi and welcome, Mellony.

 

Pleased to meet you. I'm sure you'll find many people here whose experiences are the same as yours. Congratulations on coming out. Lol.

Welcome to the forum.

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 Mell! If real names are being used here, I'm Cameron and I hope to see you in the discussions here!

Don't feel bad, if those asshats don't like you because you don't share their delusion, fuck em'! I live about 20 miles from Seattle, WA. and if you ever want to escape the bible belt, you're welcome here. We may have a high level of new age kookologists, but they are easily dealt with.

New Age Kookologist: Oh, your aura looks like your chakra's are not aligned.

Me: You have no evidence for those claims so go eat some non-homeopathic all-natural cyanide, you social parasite!

Then with the lack of "positive energy" from me, they leave so their "aura" isn't affected by my skepticism.

Kookologist dealt with!

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.
