    There's a difference between leisure and joining a borderline cult. Yes let's have someone tell me what to believe and promote a warped and bastardized translation of a 2000+ year old book.
    We all have our demons. If we're not fighting them, then we've befriended them.

    But you most certainly made personalities like Sir Isaac Newton turn in their grave with that.

    Not really, especially if 'devout' means 'faithful to texts'. Also 'scorn and intolerance' would imply that we think it's an extremely negative affliction. I certainly don't. Is that how you feel about those devoid of critical thinking?

    Thinking that scientific greats would thumb the accumulation of modern knowledge and science is laughable at best. Especially someone like Newton. They were Christians during a time the world barely knew any better, so using it as an affirmation is pretty weak. You might as well laugh at an adult who once as a child thought that objects gone from their field a vision ceased to exist. It would be much more poignant if you used modern scientific community statistics and demonstrate a neutral or upward trend.

    What makes me happy? Without a doubt forums with ignore/block functionality.

    Talking amiably about extremely nerdy things with close friends. I love it, it's the best feeling. The best kind of bonding experience for sure.

    I came out to my mom yesterday evening and she took it surprisingly well. Now my dad should be a cakewalk. I've never felt more at ease.

    That's great to hear, Damian! Sounds like you got some weight off your shoulders now. ^^

    As for me, I'm happy the busy month of October is over, I got some trade art finished, and that I had a good birthday.

    Some recent political happenings have made me really, really happy.
