    I confess between our talk last night, my productiveness today, and my workout this evening, I'm feeling really good. TONS better than I have these past few months. I just hope it stays this way.

    The original post was was a christian member asking secular members why we left the church -- then upon several answers that member got evangelical on us and took the thread too far so it got deleted. I had also added in the beginning of my post to beware that I was in a uncensoring mood that day. And from my stance, this is how I feel/think/believe and it is an accurate statement for me.

    Okay, I knew posting my reply was a bad idea. Subject over.

    I confess I'm mad I missed Seneca's original post.

    I also confess, I saw the thread and knew it was going to turn evangelical before it even had any responses which is why I didn't respond to it.

    Ah, don't be offended! You've a right to your own thoughts and I'm glad you spoke up in that post.

    I confess that my butt hurts from sitting on this bar stool in front of this laptop since I got home from work. Oh, minus the 30 minutes or so I was in the bedroom.

    I confess that I don't like the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I realize it's a satirical protest of intelligent design, and I have friends who are really into it and there are more little Spaghetti Monster magnets on cars than Jesus Fish around here, but I still don't like it.

    I confess it was obvious to me that she was trying to convert all of us non belivers, she was NOT simply asking a question. It turned into...."well, if you read the bible and do your research you'd think otherwise". She was baiting us, not asking a simple question. The outcome would've been completely different had the topic stayed the way she originally intended it to!

    Happy Birthday Mandy!

    And yay Janeen on the trailer!

    And hugs to Erin and all the girls with DH troubles. I wish I had a bunch of magic answers for you all.

    Bridget, I agree with... bah, who said that saying you want to confess something about your feelings about your mom is a first step? Anyhow, if you feel the need to confess later on (or to confess and erase, which actually helps, since you type it, see it on screen, and get it partially out of your system) please feel free

    Seneca, while I don't agree completely with your answer, I can totally see it. Kinda like Cake's "Sheep Go to Heaven Goats Go to Hell" video. It is VERY easy/tempting to become a sheep in a mass congregation type setting.

    I confess that for the first couple of decades of my life, I was sort of spoiled when it comes to how the world around me was. Not in terms of money/social standing, but in terms of philosophy, diversity, etc. I took part in so many psych and sociology experiments in college, not to mention countless discussions on religion, etc and not a single one became a moment for evangelization. I mean, even an informal survey online, for a research paper, seems to require (and benefit from!) objectivity on the part of the survey giver.

    Oh and Lydia, out of sheer curiosity, what is it about the FSM that you don't like? And yes, San Francisco has been the only place I've been so far that I've seen the FSM stickers/magnets

It was weird but she is pretty much the clone of my baby pics now, which is really weird, but I'm happy about it because I was worried about her. DH is a nice looking man but I don't think it would translate well on a woman.

    I've never heard of the flying spaghetti monster until I came to APA. Am I missing something???

We try to separate our jobs according to our talents, and household and financial management is more my strength and interest than his.

    We were best friends before we got married. We've lived together, first as a couple, then just as roommates/friends, and finally as a couple again for more than 10 years. We know each other so well, and we're so similar in many ways, that we know what the other one is thinking half the time. But we are still interesting to each other, and try to keep reading and learning and discussing new things so that we can have more interesting conversations than just what the kids are doing.

    Being on APA makes me realize again, every day, just how wonderful he is. And I tell him that. I am so sorry for all the women out there who don't have a supportive, helpful dh. People in relationships should treat each other with courtesy and respect.
    Lydia, this is us too. I am much more numbers oriented so finances and household management are something I take care of. I don't expect him to to get involved cause it's just my area. I often worry what he would do if something happened to me - I don't know if he even knows how to log into our online banking site!

    We often either finish each others sentences, or one of us will say something and the other will say "I was just about to say that!". It always gives us warm fuzzy feelings and brings a smile to both our faces.

    Agatha - you got to it before I did.

    I confess I'm also very curious as to why you don't like FSM, Lydia. Is it something you can put into words?

    But no prayer is ever said for breakfast, or for lunch. So . . . what? God only provides dinner and you're on your own for the rest of your meals?
    I guess breakfast and lunch don't count!

    I confess I am watching WWE wrestling...my guilty pleasure!
    UGH I am completely overwhelmed by all the wrestling watching in my house. Seriously. He watches RAW, smackdown, ECW, and TNA. Four days per week that wrestling is on! And they're ALL two hour long shows! I watch, but it's so overwhelming! When we first got together he only watched RAW.

    Big-E, wrestling is just a better form of a soap opera than All my Children and shows like that....just embrace it...and enjoy the big, sweaty men!

    I confess I've had a really fun day today with Travis and my in-laws. I wouldn't be so happy so far away from "home" if I didn't have such great family here in the UK.

    Well, i've definitely embraced it. 7 years ago, before we had our DVR and when he worked midnights I taped RAW for him every week. So, by me taping it, that meant I had to WATCH it too. LOL. I got really addicted to it back then. I still watch RAW "religiously", but the others just drive me insane! LOL. I love soap operas though! Well, days of our lives anyway.

    I don't either. I think it is kind of disrespectful of other people's choices. I understand why it might be funny or fun, but I also feel that it sets up an antagonism that makes communication impossible.

    And I don't like being touched by unknown noodles.

    Yes, this is it. It also seems that a lot of atheists get WAY into it, with the talk of worshipping and being touched by it. Since it's not true, it seems like it's making fun of others rather than just having fun. I'm a big fan of irony in general, but the FSM just seems overdone and a little mean and kind of ridiculous. I know the ridiculousness is intentional, but still....

    And I don't like the way it looks.

    Ahhh, that makes sense. I guess I just take it very "at face value" as something intentionally ridiculous and ironic to chuckle about and move on. I can see how it's disrespectful, and it's definitely a fine line between being hurtful and trying to get people to see just how many gods there have been (a la your post) and how "out there" some of them have been (and the God of mainstream Christians is pretty tame compared to some others).
