Quote of the Day:

Afterward, his commander asked whether he believed in God, Hall said.

“I said, ‘No, but I believe in Plexiglas,”‘ Hall said. “I’ve never believed I was going to a happy place. You get one life. When I die, I’m worm food.”

  1. I appreciate your candor, humor and godless sensibilities.

    God believing does not have to be tedious or close minded to your own convictions, it is a personal belief much like your own. I dislike those that are on a crusade to “save” the world.

    You sound like you live by a great example. I hope you find that person who wants you for all the right reasons and you find much happiness on this mortal coil we must share, believer and non-believer alike.

    peace.

  2. Once again, I find myself admiring your wit and intelligence. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to find my own philosophies reflected so closely in another person beyond my own family. Sad though it may be, I find, increasingly, that tolerance is becoming a rarity in this world of ours. As a single white male struggling to build a career as an educator in America, I am often confronted with the issue of tolerance. Though I can’t say that I’ve had much experience with religious intolerance (excepting, of course, from my ex-girlfriend the devout Christian), I do find myself advocating often for the tolerance of culture. As an Arizona resident, I am also confronted regularly with the American intolerance of immigrants (one of our greatest ironies when one considers that one way or another all American families immigrated to this land at one point or another). As a teacher of English language learners, mostly immigrants, I am faced, day in and out, with the complete lack of regard for Latin culture held by the state as I am commanded to force our language upon my students while disciplining them for using theirs.

    Not quite the ideas that you have expressed, I’ll admit, but certainly they are relevant to the overarching theme of tolerance and intolerance. In any event, I wholeheartedly agree with your words of wisdom and I restate my belief that you have a fantastic personality. If ever you should desire to share correspondence as friends or even just as two like minds, I would be honored indeed. Never have I found another person whose passions, interests, values, and philosophies so closely mirrored my own. Adieu.
