getting tired of pointless anger

Title says it all really. I have not bothered writing much because I tend to get the wrong end of the stick and realize I'm sounding like an idiot mostly. Lurking about it seems that at least I do realize I'm acting like an pillock and had the sense to stop blabbering.

I really can't be bothered with people shouting, fighting and just being plain loud whenever politics and religion come into the discussion for anything. As a non-believer I actually spent some time recently informing myself about other people's religion and I think it has made me a more rounded person.

I didn't know that Buddhists don't believe in god, and that Hinduism actually holds atheism to be valid but difficult to follow spiritually - and that Thomas Jefferson studied the qur'an as part of his study for his bar exam.

So - just saying - if I meet anyone and we start chatting over a beer or 2, I may not agree with what you say but it would have been nice to chat like a human being.. I'm not going to judge you because of what I *don't* know about you..


'Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for man to overcome oppression and
violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge,
aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love'

Martin Luther King, Jr., Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Stockholm, Sweden, December 11, 1964.

Keep up those kind of false beliefs and I'll come around with a bunch of my (violent) pals and we'll smash you into pulp.

Now, what was your point again.....?

Just because I'm an atheist doesn't mean I can't kick you ass. But I just prefer not to

And there in lies the difference!

(Anyway, I use the ignore function quite liberally now. I mean you can just not reply but the ignore function keeps the temptation away! lol.)
