sandmansister: (Sylar best thing)
Here's a link to the original post. DBAD* is a philosophy I can totally get behind, and it only goes to illustrate my point that in spiritual/religious matters, we're all doing the same thing; we just use different words to achieve our ends. So really, why quibble over vocabulary?

A friend and I were discussing religion yesterday. He's a devout evangelical Christian, and I'm a militant secular humanist.

AVAUNT!
