Religious Views

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

A few weeks ago, an old friend invited me to join Facebook. So I did. That total strangers want to add me on their friends list (and even send those flirt-with-me requests) I didn’t find odd or creepy. I actually find it amusing. What struck me was this particular information being asked for in the profile area:

Religious views

I had to think twice. “So what do I write here?” I asked myself. Is agnosticism a religious view? Or is it a lack of any religious views? Do I dare reveal to the facebook world my strong strong suspicion that this is it for us, with no heaven or hell to go to when we die? Being branded as a heathen or a heretic is perfectly fine with me. What is shameful, I admit, is my being a waffly straddler—unable to commit to believing, with conviction, in either the existence of non-existence of a supreme being.

FSM welcomes waffly stradlers. His noodliness would rather that you didn't go around telling people anyone he talks to you. :)

better to be a noodle than a waffle, huh? :)

You can be both, remember FSM in His infinite wisdom or drunkenness does not discriminate regardless of complex carbohydrates. :)
