Lurk to your hearts content! But when you see something that grabs you please jump in and give us your take on it.

You know how hard it can be.

I am currently studying Anselm and Augustine. The ontological convolutions of Anselm make this site a refreshing respite for my spiritual longings. While I am not yet ready to commit fully to the FSM beliefs, I will give it grave consideration,;as I am one who conceives that which there is nothing greater. Perhaps this "nothing greater" is FSM. Or perhaps, as Augustine believed, it is God, and the ID group is correct. My soul is still raked with torment over these questions, but I endure.

My goodness, you'd think we were getting some kind of publicity with all these new folks showing up. :wink:

Hey, I'm Randy - As you can see, I'm new to His noodliness, but you know what? I'm looking forward to this. A religion I like, that I wasn't forced into by a couple of adults who created me, but little do they know who REALLY created me, right? Anyway, I'm Randy and I can't wait to go out and buy that Gospel - I'm hoping to get it soon.
Finally - A religion that doesn't suck.

Perhaps we are. There's a mention of His Noodliness (by his more formal name) in this months Wired magazine.

And that old coot Dawkins can't shut up about it.*





*If Dr. Dawkins should see this, please understand that is meant to be a humerous comment. I hold you in the highest regard, and by no means consider you a coot.
