The revelation has come, and the creation is still nigh, but not as nigh as we previously rectroactively thought we'd believed. The great creator works in mysterious ways, ours is not to question, BUT, maybe this is wisdom, for it gives the non-existing more non-time to pre-repent. SO PRE REPENT WHILE THERE'S STILL NO TIME!

Revelation can only come through cleansing, and I have not received your cheque, I must note.

I got asked earlier during a group discussion what religious affiliation I belong to. Being an experienced atheist in the workplace, my little mind started working overtime seeking an acceptable answer, but my mouth was one ahead of the head this time around - I'm now a proudly out the closet now-nowist, and everybody swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

I'm waiting for the most curious of them to come ask me details about my beliefs.....  Evil

I'll give praise justnow-now.

Good work sister, I'm sure the great creator shall not overlook your creation when the creating begins.

I got a moments silence, a few odd looks and then the conversation went back to social issues within the family environment (read mamma moer vir pappa en boetjie got sussie's best friend pregnant)

I'm rather enjoying this, I'll report back on whether I gain any conversions to our esteemed religion.

I just had an hour's worth of discussion about my beliefs. My own head is turning, I have'nt spouted so much crap since I was a teenager and I'm relatively certain that I would'nt be able to repeat the performance.

At the very least, I was believable, I almost started believing myself at one point, I honestly never thought that my knowledge about spiritualism would be of any benefit to me whatsoever, I was wrong.

BM you are thoroughly evil, its all your fault.

Hey heeyyyy now, no need to be insulting to Justnownowism. I don't have strong rules about blasphemy at all but the creator has feelings too ya know.

I love it when a joke goes too far because people don't realise you were joking. I also hate it when it backfires in your face and they get offended at a tongue-in-cheek comment. It's a thin line, well played.

I'll go write down the concept of my discussions tonight whilst the husband is sanding down walls, its lengthy, but a belief system should have a written word to back it up with - we all need that safetynet of "BUT, but, the [insert holy book of choice here] says so!!"

Be sure to use "sanding walls" metaphors.

No, this sacred moment did not and will not occur. It will merely be implanted into our brains during creation (Edit: Sacredly).
