Vegan Coder I will never take anybody seriously who claims things about freemasonry past helping people and a spiritual existence, because that's all they are you fucking idiot.

Vegan Coder are you fucking autistic? You have a club penguin as your picture and why would a logo matter about a flat earth? Have you ever been on google earth? Pictures taken from satellites! Just kill yourself
