It's been awhile. It's good to see some familiar faces.
I saw from another place that the site could be fading away. May not, who knows. But it may.
So I wanted to stop by before I lost the chance and sincerely thank this particular subforum for being a teaching ground for me.
Whatever else I am the discussions and arguments I had here, specifically in this subforum, shaped who I am and developed my mind towards seeking
information and answers.
While many members here in those days helped, and some I've had the opportunity to meet on other sites or even in person while others i'm afraid
have faded before I had the chance.
Of the many members who helped with this, I'd like to especially thank AugustusMasonicus.
It was always an education, even when the topics repeated over and again.
Im not the person I was, and i do think i can say I'm better than I was then.
And simply put, it's because of this site.
It definitely opened me up to new ways of thinking, skepticism, and a basic introduction to philosophy as well as a reawakening of a love of history
I had lost.
All that said I doubt where I am would be satisfactory to some. I'm not religious, no longer have an interest in joining Masonry.
But I like these things about me and they started here.
I remember the site with fondness.
It's been 13 years since I registered on this site. A lot has changed since then. A lot will, hopefully, change in the future.
I haven't been here in awhile, I know. But it's always been a cornerstone, if you will.
Maybe the site will go on, and if so that's great. If not, I will remember it fondly. Well , mostly.
If anyone remembers me at all, fondly or not, then the remembrance is appreciated.
The world moves forward and things change. The change isn't always good, but it isn't always bad either. And we can't stop it.
So again, while I have the opportunity I wanted to say my thanks, in case the opportunity too do so passes as the changes go on. I appreciate the
time I had and try to do the same for others as time and changes keep on.
