For years I thought I knew what Deism was. Looking up the definition, I realize it's similar to my beliefs somewhat.

Look up Theism. A lot of folks get the two confused.

Ppl who got past dpression (or mostly did) are extremely annoying. I live w/ 1. They 4get what it's like. Willpower isn't enuf.

If they can get past it on willpower alone, then they were depressed. They weren't suffering from clinical depression.

There's a rather major difference. And far too many people think that the clinical sort is the other sort.

Like so many other "mental" things (and many physical ones) our culture has a bias towards thinking such things are "merely" weakness or not trying hard enough.

And now we come upon one of the oddities of being a multiple... Alex is a Deist, the others are Theists.

In here most of the system is materialistic and rationalist. The only exception, oddly, are the Xeltrigan who bear a vague resemblance to demons but follow a religious split that roughly approximates Orthodox Christianity v. Sunni Islam. Though neither of the two practices would really be comfortable for Earthmen witnessing the liturgies thereof.

As for the polytheists......what matters to us is that the ritual is completed for the health of our community and to avoid the wrath of the gods, and sometimes you have people who even deny the existence of our gods but do the rituals for social reasons. I happen to be polytheist and follow the gods of my people.

It should be emphasized that liberalism doesn't necessarily mean the ideas of the moderate right wing of the United States, it meant in an early 20th Century context a form of hyper-individualistic Free Market ideology with resemblance to today's conservatism (the conservatism of that era favored nobles and king, not necessarily business interests and not truly business interests until after Europe became split between the American and Soviet Empires and then just the Western half).

However, Hitler was also against the economic Left as well, and in fact was largely elected on a Red Scare basis (which had a small degree of basis in that Thalmann was basically as much a thug as Hitler was).

Not a problem. I skip a lot of people's tweets too.

Metric isn't used often in USA. 1 and 2 liter bottles for soda are the most common use of metric outside of the medical industry around here.

Our old people still use it, sometimes.

That is, use whatever the old units of measure are called.
