The Ship is really all about friends. Most of us have them and and like listening to Nerves and Jitterbug not just because we might agree with one of them on any given topic but because they are two friends. These two friends often disagree about either ors and the like. That's what's funny and awesome about the ship. If these two guys weren't friends (and we weren't friends with them also) it would just be two pricks arguing.

A short while ago I had the privilege of stowing away on the ship and aiding with the helm for an evening. Jitterbug and I spoke for hours that didn't make it into the show. A lot of it had to with religion and our different beliefs. We both feel strongly that this makes our friendship better, the differences.

Everything is customizable, from pizza to M&M's. You can get what ever you want how ever you want it. The danger with that in people is if you only surround yourself with people like you, if you customize your friends, all really end up with is pizzas.

Another aspect of enjoying and interacting with our differences is the effect it has on our similarities. Acknowledging and understanding our differences is what makes our similarities even more unique.

So it only stands to reason that people who have opinions on everything from beer to anal beads would have thoughts on belief as well. The only difference is the level of care required in what we say to each other about what we believe verses what counsel we have at home.

SO interact, share, ask each other questions about what you believe. Don't stand on the virtual street conner with your mega phone and condemn. Remember the group of friends who had a special card made up that read "Jesus Loves You..." on the front and they would give it to someone in the group when they thought they needed it. The back read "but the rest of us think you're an Asshole!". Don't make us give you the card!

Glad to have you aboard! We might have to make you the official Ship Chaplain!!

The idea is something like "One for all, All for one." :)
