“When one person suffers from delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from delusion it is called religion.” Robert M.Pirsig

That's one heck of a con-clusion!

As a Naturalistic Atheistic Agnostic (NAA!!!) a pet peeve of mine is when someone refers to oneself as being a Non-Theist as that is negatively non-descriptive. It's as if I referred to myself as being a non-vegetarian.

Oh well, it's time for me to have some bacon while contemplating the meaning of a scorpion's existence.

"I don't think of myself as fat ... I just think of my self as non-thin." Merrilees Andrews.

That's an easy enough non to understand I say, the saying made me laugh to be sure. I then went on to describe myself (to me) in non terms - and had some fun I tell you! Try it, you'll surely smile.

Cheers

Sort of like . . . I don't think of myself as forgetful, I think of myself as non-rememberful? Mmm, I like the idea, but I think I'm not quite getting the hang of it.

This non-stuff can be taken in many different directions...

Since I'm not very good at adding up numbers as they confuse me so, I consider myself as being
non-plussed.

Since Mona and Lestie are always well-mannered and polite, I see them as being non-toxic.

This topic is fun. My goat ran away. My life is just one big non sequitur.

Does that mean then that a non-agon is likely to be an octagon? Or perhaps some ecstasy is attached after all?

I guess if you are chalant, then you care; if descript then you would make an impression; if an esuch or pareil then you would blend in! Talking such sense could make a girl plussed while in search of staying an entity against all odds,

Ah well, for the nonce I agree with Orwell, who was nonelling (my word!) on about the use of double negatives in prose. He said when ever tempted to say things like 'she was not unpretty ...' think of the sentence the not-black dog ran across the not green field, not at the beginning of the day (or something like that).

Chasing after goats is a full time occupation - good luck xme.

With a hey nonny nonny I bid you cheers smiling

PS Mona, I am also a rememberable of the non club.

I don't get lost. Sometimes I find myself in a different place to the one I expected.

If you offer a goat something tasty, won't it chase after you instead? I'm not acquainted with goats, but it usually works with cats.

I must be an agenerian. (That sounds like some sort of herb.) Otherwise I'd be a non-agenerian.

Is derstand good or bad? Do we want to derstand or understand? Life is difficult.

Such a difference a little space makes. Notable vs not able. Manslaughter vs mans laughter. Therapist vs the rapist.

If one is a non-nun that doesn't mean that their belief in a God is none but given that information it's difficult to discern what type of noun they may be, pro or not.

A theist is not a atheist
and a atheist is not a theist,
So why do they sound the same?

It's the N-factor that's missing!
