Ha! Yeah, I might as well dig in. I'm in-between projects so I have a little time.

Look how pompous you are. You love to draw attention to your Christianity, which is exactly the opposite advice you gave Titan on page 2:

And to top it all off, you've completely missed the point
of Titan's original post, strangely, since you think you have some sort of Christian bond with him. It's not just an apology (thankfully, because it's a pretty silly one). Titan is clearly saying his relationship with God (nay, everyone's relationship with God) is completely personal and can't be known through studying literature, advice, or any of the common ways people generally approach their practice. He's experiencing a sense of the divine that exceeds description. He sees the divine in everything, including us horrible atheists. And yet you still want to jump in and be seen as the older, wiser, more experienced/advanced Christian. How can you possibly contribute to this kid's overwhelming experience of the universe exploding within and around him? "Crisis of faith?" How would you know what he's feeling? Seriously, go screw yourself.
If you'll notice, I didn't really say anything in this thread until I got tired of you making yourself seem so righteous. Go ahead and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ of Nazareth
. I'll watch my back. This isn't about my distaste of religion. It's about me being tired of your haughty nonsense. "Oh look at me I'm so peaceful when I tell others how to live their lives"

Nice example of how to be annoyingly proud. If you really think it's a "dead horse" you wouldn't be posting, attention-whore.
And for the record, I've never smoked. I think it's extremely immature and something adults don't do. If you are out of your teens and still smoke, damn, grow the hell up.
