I look forward to seeing what you bring to the table. You seem to have a few very interesting perspectives on all the great things you're not supposed to discuss in polite company.

I'd like to make a disclaimer and a recommendation.

Disclaimer: While I'm pretty deeply interested in spirituality, to use the slipperiest of all words, you are probably best served by considering me an agnostic anti-theist if we ever discuss Religion in any organized capacity. Which leads to my

Recommendation: #talkreligion Is an ongoing discussion I think you might be interested in. rd95 and ThatFanficGuy are cool dudes.

Edit because of something I just noticed in #talkreligion

I think the fact that TFG is a non-native English speaker contributes to the value of these discussions. They must take place in language that crosses over well, so the ideas have to be conveyed in simplistic language.

Ongoing, but slow. Feel free to contribute to it at any point! rd95 and I started it, but I like to think of it as a metathread, not restricted by the two of us.

I've held some angry thoughts on religion at one point, which finds its reflection in what became the first of the #talkreligion posts. A lot has changed since then, but I'm yet to formalize the results in written form - or, in fact, in any form. If any of you would want to discuss religion and/or spirituality, feel free to hop onto IRC. I spend a lot of time there and find the freeform more helpful in getting towards some resulting thought, personally.

I really miss the days of having an IRC channel to hang out it. What server do y'all use? Is mIRC still in vogue or is there something better?

Great, I'll check out that tag. As I said, I believe there's Truth to be had everywhere, and there's plenty to learn from each other.
