The Good Old Days

August 11, 2010

Do you use that phrase? What do you mean if you do? I guess the average person is talking about a previous stage in life better than the one currently in. I don’t know about you, but I ain’t got no good old days. I can look back in my life and point to a shitload of pain and things I don’t even want to remember. That’s nothing to do with religion, because only pussies and fools blame all their problems on religion. The way I’m feeling when I wake up these days is my version of the average person’s ^good old days^ if you catch my drift. I actually like where I’m at for once.

What’s freaky is that no matter how good my days get one day I’m going to die. If there’s one thing I’ll give theists it’s that they have something more to look forward to. That doesn’t square selling snake oil and indulgences I’m just saying that optimism gives theists who have it a tangible benefit in that regard. So long as they live and let live, that’s a ^good^ thing. I wouldn’t wish inner pain on anyone.
