RUN_FOREST_RUN, I am not here to preach Krishna consciousness to anybody, much less yourself. I for one would appreciate it if you would not preach use this venue to preach atheism to me. After all, for one thing, it's against the rules to preach anything here...The purpose of this message board is not to promote a specific religious and/or political viewpoint. Don't use it to preach or proselytize.
...and for another thing, it's hypocritical on your part to be a "preachy atheist."
I used to be an atheist myself, until I started to study what Prabhupada was teaching. That is my honest experience. Ohers' milage my vary (so to speak).
In other words: I am not trying to persuade you (or anybody else) of anything at all. Please do the same for me (and whatever other theists might be reading this). I am only here to share information, with respect to this stupid Code the Good ol' Boys Club (GBC) has come up with.
I will not preach my thing to you, and you will not preach your thing to me. Can we agree to that, please?
