It wouldn't surprise me if other people thought the same way.
Yeah..... I never really understood the point of this thread either... in fact when I joined up 5 months ago I wrote “I don't quite see why I'm supposed to make my first post here… it seems a rather unnecessary Germanic regulation” and you were the first person to reply to me with a very cordial and courteous welcome! But no-one ever explained to me what this thread was about… I guess it’s just a way of getting to know new members and saying hello to them and answering any silly questions they may have ‘cos they don’t know what Pastafarianism is... altho’ many of us have rather different opinions on that topic (see All Things FSM What do we stand for? and the latest comments on All Things FSM A Question from a Christian) and it's just as well, 'cos a range of different opinions is the sign of a healthy demo-crassy! I guess everyone has their own idea of what this thread is all about too..... but no-one as yet ('cept me!) seems to have given you any coherent reply to the question inherent-implied in your post!
Perhaps it's just what Catholics call "mistero della fede" (mystery of the faith!)
