I have just been newly introduced to FictionPress, but I've read many (understatement) books. If any of you wish to discuss a book with me, feel free.
My Fanfiction pen name is GoldenAura.
Three Facts About me:
- I can read and finish a 400 page book on a school night if it's really interesting and I don't have too much to do.
- My friends say my hidden talent is getting amazing grades when I don't understand. (They're lying! I totally understand!)
- I love playing soccer and dodge ball.
Why is it that when clothes are wet they get darker? Is there a scientific explanation for that?
Was toilet paper invented before or after the toilet?
Why do movies always display dinosaurs as creatures with brownish, greenish skin? How do they know that dinosaurs weren't purple or blue? They can't possibly have found remains of their skin since it would have decayed over the years, unlike the bones?
If anyone knows any of these answers, feel free to tell me.

- If a child runs into the room saying "Mummy, mummy! I love Jesus and He loves me! We're all going to Heaven when we die and God is looking over us!", people will smile and praise the child. Nobody would say "Don't be silly. You can't possibly say that because you don't fully understand everything about the religion. How can you know that for sure, when you've not read the Bible in the original Hebrew?!". But if a child (or teenager, or adult) says "I've had a good think about it, and have come to the conclusion that Jesus is a myth and nothing in Christianity makes much sense. I declare myself to be a freethinking secular humanist.", then they are quite likely to receive the latter response. You could have all the theological training of a hedgehog and still get wild applause if you stand up and say you're a Christian, but it seems that atheists are required to demonstrate more intelligence and Biblical expertise than all the clergymen and theologians that have ever lived before they are allowed to publicly express their doubts. -Adrian Barnett
