Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
I believe this is my first post:
http://www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&m=106825

In which Percy agreed with me, a great honor for a first post I guess. It was mostly downhill from there as I went through a bit of a learning curve. I came in here to debate about creation, because I was believing in what creationists were saying, taking on faith that they were conducting real science. I have found that not to be true.

However, my faith has not waned, and I still believe. If anything, debating in this forum has increased my faith, and made me learn the bible a lot better than I would have on my own. The bible is not my source of faith, but confirms some things I feel inside. I've learned a lot about science along the way too.

I've learned that faith is very subjective, and you cannot prove God. Actually you can't prove anything. It's brought about a sensitivity to what others feel about religion, and God, and soften my approach to people in that regard. I've learned that the only way to convey feelings about God is through love, and that's it.

Like Ned, my posting has slowed down quite a bit, as you tend to get tired of debating with certain people who just don't understand you, and are just basically liars.

I guess if I went back and read, I find quite a few posts that I might be embarrassed about today, but heh, wtf, no regrets, live and learn.
