EXPLAIN THESE ONES ATHEISTS.
I’m not sure if David is bad at being a troll or if David is just bad at being funny.
What the heck. I have time to kill. I’ll try meditating “correctly”. I’d love to see millions of gods and angels face to face. I’m not entirely sure why I have to pass through these hoops to see these gods and angels and why they don’t just make themselves readily apparent, but who am I to question the wisdom of millions of gods?

Nah…that would never happen.
The Cycle of Abuse Illustrated Through Single Photos and Multiple Models
Statistics show that 70% of people who are abused as children will grow up into adults who will in turn abuse children. A recent awareness ad campaign by Mexican organization Save the Children shared this fact in single photographs that are both creative and difficult to stomach.
The advertisements were originally published back in May 2012, and were created by Mexican agency Y&R and photographer Ale Burset.
Each one uses five models showing one individual at different stages of life. In the foreground, the individual is experiencing abuse as a child. Older versions of the abused child grow up as they walk across the background of the frame, and turn into the original abuser by the time they walk a full circle.
“70% of abused children turn into abusive adults. Donate at savethechildren.mx,” the advertisements say.

Thus proving that the world really is flat.
If you think abortions ok, remember what Horton says.
Awkward. Dr. Seuss and his wife were really liberal and pro-choice. They’ve even threatened to sue pro-life organizations for using this quote the wrong way (the way you’re doing it actually). I guess you didn’t already know that Horton Hears a Who is about the American occupation of Japan post-WWII. He even dedicated it to his dear Japanese friend.
Mrs. Geisel (Mrs. Seuss) continued donating to Planned Parenthood and advocating for reproductive health and rights after her husband died.
Hmmph. While I appreciate Twain’s sentiment, to be fair, for those billions and billions of years I didn’t know what I was missing, either.
I’m pretty sure creationists are immune to this stuff.
On my facebook feed, I noticed that today was apparently an unofficial “christians and atheists are mad at each other” day.
I don’t understand why they argue with each other. They both reject each other’s preferred source of point-proving. It is literally a no-win situation that just makes everyone angry.
I’m not in the least mad at Christians as a whole, but I admit that fundamentalists do cause me some problems. I have to point that arguments are kind of inevitable when the fundamentalist preferred source of point-proving is the Bible and that the atheists preferred source of point-proving is the entire rest of reality. When your rejection of reality tries to get itself infiltrated into politics and education, it does then to cause a bit of contention.

The level of psychosis in that post…
There is only one appropriate reply…
Perfect example of Exactly what House was talking about here.
Ya this guy is fucking stupid. People I have talked to say he’s a classic example of the dunning-kruger effect. And they couldn’t be more right. In some video of his he said “not to toot my own horn, but i think i’m the smartest guy i know”.
This is…disturbingly disturbed. I’m not even sure what the Creationism dude thinks his logic is.
Is it impossible for God to exist? Then correct answer “we don’t know”. By what we know of logic and physics, the God traditionally discussed is certainly impossible. As for some other form of deistic god, nothing we know about science indicates that such a being would be possible, but, since we don’t know everything there is to know, we can’t completely rule out the possibility.
Is it possible for God to unambiguously reveal himself? This would certainly fall under the definition of what an all powerful god could do, but then it begs the question of “if he exists, then why hasn’t he?” And if a God indeed turns out to be an impossibility, then the question is moot.
a guy i work with tried to tell me that a ‘mastectomy’ was exactly like a ‘vasectomy’ and that angelina jolie wasn’t ‘losing her breasts,’ they were just ‘cutting off the milk supply’
Why do people try to sound authoritative when they haven’t a clue what they are talking about. O.o
THIS IS WATER
” In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.
This video was built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).”
If you watch just one video today, make it this one.
^^^ What she said.
This video will be very worth your time. I promise.
