Think of religions like cake.
On the outside it looks so appealing that you just have to have a piece. The frosting and piping and elaborate decorations are the things that particular religion shows off to the world. Beautiful architecture, holidays, ceremonies and messages of love and peace.
Some people window shop before they pick a cake, but most eat their parent's cake during childhood and get used to eating that particular cake and are satisfied with it.
You didn't bake the cake so you a
I am sick of seeing this ignorance passed around like its a good thing. It is not.
Religious moderates cherry pick their scriptures.
Religious moderates provide the platform for so called extremists (those that take scripture literally) to stand up on,*Ours is a religion of peace*
They are the shield the nutters hide behind *We're not all like that*.
Moderates accept no responsibility for the actions of their kind abusing, raping and killing in the name of or under the protection of th
I dislike people pushing their religion into secular causes, especially when religion is a main cause of the problem.
One of the gay rights activist pages I support posted an image with a cross in front of the equal sign. All the self proclaimed Christians responded with praise. I wanted to puke. It is religion, their holy scriptures that are the primary force for inequality for the gay community. People who claim to be Christian and do not follow their scriptures aren't, they're cherry picker
There, now you've seen it too. I tried three times to watch it and couldn't get to the end, finally this morning I read the transcript to get through it. Again I was struck by how religion poisons everything.
The body of the piece is homage to the hard work and rugged lives of those that put our food on our tables and its lovely. I worked dairy farms the latter half of my teens and I know the work that goes into the milk you pour over your cereal. Farmers should be
Surrounded by a puzzling and often frightening world, people from almost every culture have come to trust in the improvable and supernatural. Here Richard Dawkins remembers when he broke with this pattern and became an atheist.
sadly I must put my faith in humanity and hope that there is enough good in our species to keep us going
The latest windows update defaulted everything to light mode including the task bar and start menu. x_x Thankfully there is a setting to change that in the taskbar settings. Its like windows decided to burn my eyes first thing this morning. x_x
Playing through MW2's campaign again, I forgot how many batshit crazy watershed moments there were. Like MW1 was way more grounded in reality. Both are great but MW2's campaign is like an 80's action movie at times. My heart still raced stealthing through the snow and hijacking the snow mobiles near the start. running through the favela tops, escaping the gulag. Its pretty fun experiencing it all again 10 years later with slightly better visuals. I'm glad it's this month's free game.
Damn ground bee stung the hell out of my arm yesterday while I was weed whacking. If I could have gotten to their hive with the whacker I'd have shredded it into a million pieces and then ran for my life. But the hive was in a concrete block. I sprayed it last night. I'll hit it with some expanding foam spray tonight to seal off the rest of them so they'll be buried alive.
Now that the state of Mississippi has opted into the lottery, I can take a 15 min drive across the state line to a little gas station and buy tickets. Its astonishing how my state just refuses to even let us vote on it. People take their money to FL and GA for lotto tickets, and now the state we share out biggest border has it... on top of that most of the population is on the west side of the state anyways making it even easier. So dumb. I'm just glad I don't have to drive an hour plus to get tickets anymore. I can now make a weekly trip and try my luck.
First it was a heat wave and now we got deluged with rain. Lol. We got so much rain the pool started overflowing at the white frame areas.
The pool at max capacity is 4500 gallons and we only get 4000 delivered every year. The pool was getting a little low last week. Since last Saturday the pool got enough rain to fill it up over 500 gallons and overflow. So much water. 😮
