What If God Is A Scientist?

If an almighty being created us, gave us free will and then hid itself what would be the purpose?

The Scientist With Lego

When we were children we were probably at some stage given toys such as Lego or other building blocks. We would build and play with that lego and learn what designs worked and what would fall down. What if God is the same? Only he has the power to create anything he wants. See what designs work and what falls down. People claim god is omniscient and therefore knows everything, but perhaps it's just our puny human understanding. Maybe he just knows everything about us and since many humans think they are the center of gods undivided attention, that appears to be everything. What if god doesn't know everything and it is all an experiment to see if things will work? (thus the platypus). Knowing everything would be incredibly boring to an immortal almighty being!

You Can't Prove That God Exists

No one can prove God exists, all we have are religious scriptures that are written by (ignorant human) men. There is not one shred of evidence that god did or ever exist-
However, isn't that perfect for someone conducting an experiment? A god has not intervened in our daily affairs, has not stopped world hunger, war, homophobia, suicides. Like a good scientist he can watch a baby penguin die without intervening. He is simply fascinated by what we do even if it's us blowing each other up!

We Are To God What White Mice Are To Scientists

What if that's it? and all religion is a lie even though there's a god who doesn't care about us? Why should god care? He may have set up the dominos, but it is much more fun to watch them fall down!

You Have No Way Of Proving Me Wrong

As all religions argue "since you can't prove me wrong I must be right", even though in ordinary circumstances the one making the claim has to provide evidence but apparently this doesn't apply to religion.

God Is a Scientist Because...

  • He left no proof of his existence to influence us.
  • He does not interfere with our lives, wars or answer prayers.
  • He doesn't actually care about individuals.
  • God didn't create religion which is why there are so many man made ones.
If there is a God, he isn't an asshole he's just totally indifferent to us.

Save Derpy-The Thoughts Of A Non MLP Fan

Recently there has been a huge controversy in the Brony world that I am not really apart of. I've watch one or two episodes of my little pony friendship is magic just to see what the buzz is about and thought it was alright. It's quite easy on the eyes and while I'm not really a fan of it, I don't really see it as a reason to hate anybody for watching.

Anyway, one of the background ponies had a lazy eye and the fans affectionately dubbed this pony 'Derpy Hooves'. Derp is internet slang that means a number of things, but it's usually like being clumsy or silly. The fans loved this non intrusive background pony and recently she got her first lines and a nod to the fanbase.

The fans were thrilled! but...

Not everyone loves Derpy

Derpy, true to how fans saw her is mildly implied to have a mental disability. She has a lazy eye like previously mentioned a slight speech impediment and is quite clumsy. Despite all this people still love her but then something awful happened.
People started fighting to have Derpy removed from my little pony because of this disability. Hasbro caved in pretty easily to the demands and changed Derpy, fixing her eye and speech impediment so she was just like every other pony.
Here is a comparison between the original and the new

What's Wrong With Getting Rid Of Derpy?

Mental disabilities are facts of life. I have friends with autism and down syndrome and I am aware of how cruel people are to them. A pony like Derpy warms my heart a little, not just because there is a pony with a disability but because so many people love her for who she is. Bronies welcomed her with open... uh hooves and I love that! But now that she has been changed...

What message does this send to mentally disabled children?

...It's as if you can't be different. Changing Derpy means that no one wants the mentally disabled kid. It means that they are the part of society that no one wants to acknowledge the existence of and it is hurtful. Not everyone is given the same chance at life even if we pretend in tv that they are. Derpy was a symbol and by destroying her you have destroyed all the things she stood for-
Equality, Justice, Being Different, Vulnerability and Love.
And why?
To please the people who have fully functional brains who don't have a mental disability and don't know what it's like. So what if there is a little controversy? You should stand up for what is right even if it's just a pony.

But It's Just A Pony

is it? Or is Derpy Hooves a symbol and her removal a symbol of humanities nature to be cruel to anyone who is different. Make a stand, not for a pony or for bronies but for mentally disabled children and equality #SaveDerpy

Stop Using The Bible To Hurt People


So I've already established some of the things I hate about Christianity in my other post including

  • Their inability to leave non Christians alone.
  • Using the bible to justify everything in a debate.
  • The lack of the 'live and let live' mentality.
  • The hatred and intolerance it is misused to breed.
  • The vicious comments left behind by over zealous Christians on Youtube
After I wrote it I ended up having to deal with some lovely Christian hatemail and while doing so I remember a whole bunch of stuff I hate about Christianity and over zealous Christians that I left out and at the top of the list was their cursed book-The bible
Disclaimer:
If you are a Christian and you aren't a prick about it then of course this does not apply to you.

The Use And Misuse of The Bible

Picture Origin Here
The Bible is a messed up book on its own and I really don't think it needs any help when it comes to condoning messed up stuff. However, people still misuse the bible to twist try and justify their arguments in ways that make my skin crawl.

Awful Things The Bible Condones

Murder of The Following Types Of People

  • Witches: Exodus 22:17 You should not let a sorceress live.
  • Homosexuals: Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives.
  • Fortunetellers: Leviticus 20:27 A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death.
  • Someone Who Hits Their Parents: Exodus 21:15 Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death.
  • ...Or Curses Them: Leviticus 20:9  All who curse their father or mother must be put to death.  They are guilty of a capital offense.
  • Adulters And The Woman They Adultered: Leviticus 20:10 If a man commits adultery with another man's wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death.
  • Priests Daughters That Have Sex: Leviticus 21:9 A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.
  • Atheists & Non-Christians: 2 Chronicles 15:12-13  They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.
  • False Prophets: Zechariah 13:3 If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord."  When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.
  • Entires Towns If One Person Isn't Christian: Deuteronomy 13:13-19  Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.
  • Women Who Aren't Virgins On Their Wedding Night: Deuteronomy  22:20-21 But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house.  Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst
  • Sons of Sinners: Isaiah 14:21 Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants. 

Huff... Puff... Damn that's a long list...

Slavery

Okay so we all no slavery is wrong... except God apparently. There are some rules though, like buying your slaves from foreigners, you know that's usually how the whole human trafficking thing works. Don't want anyone they know to recognise them and all that jazz. At least you don't have to travel, you can buy them from a foreigner who's visiting for all your slave driving needs.

 However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you.  You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land.  You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance.  You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.  (Leviticus 25:44-46)

Isn't that considerate? They won't treat their relatives like property. That's real honor there, I think I'm tearing up at how kind and wonderful Christianity clearly is. It gets even better though, we don't want to hurt the dear Hebrews, we'll let them go in about six years, maybe. Maybe if they leave us their beautiful children to be slaves and be handed down to our children as part of the inheritance. Praise the Lord

 If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years.  Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom.  If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year.  But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him.  If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master.  But the slave may plainly declare, 'I love my master, my wife, and my children.  I would rather not go free.'  If he does this, his master must present him before God.  Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl.  After that, the slave will belong to his master forever.  (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

But don't think women are left out. No no because men definitely need their sex slaves and you can even get married to and keep your sex slave, just be sure to have just as much sex with her as your wife because that is a hardship for you I'm sure.

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.  (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
Now you may need to discipline your naughty servants. That's fine just make sure if you're going to beat them to death that it take about two days for them to die otherwise it's murder.

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.  If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.  (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

Christians like to argue and say that Jesus got rid of slavery but he actually approved of slavery as well so hate to burst their bubble but...

 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear.  Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.  (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)
Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed.  If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful.  You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts.  Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.  (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

And Jesus wasn't above having slaves beaten either.

The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it.  "But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly.  Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given."  (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

Rape & Lack Of Respect For Women

So murder, check. Slavery? check. Rape? Oh yeah, check. Let's learn some more about Gods *cough cough* love

 (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

    If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

So pay the father so he won't be too sad that you grabbed his daughter and proceeded to ravage her and scar her for life and then force her to marry you so you can ravage her every night. Great answer God.

(Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

    If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

If someone is raping you they are going to try and keep you quiet or threaten to kill you if you aren't quiet. Women simply can't win but God doesn't care

(Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)
    "When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house.  But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's garb.  After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife.  However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion." 

Well at least he can't sell her into slavery once he's gotten off.

(Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

     As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace.  If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor.  But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town.  When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town.  But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder.  You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

Whoa, so that's more than a little messed up. Notice women and children, so pedophilia may go further back into the church than we think.

(Numbers 31:7-18 NLT)

    They attacked Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men.  All five of the Midianite kings – Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba – died in the battle.  They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword.  Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder.  They burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived.  After they had gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.

    Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp.  But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle.  "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded.  "These are the very ones who followed Balaam's advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor.  They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people.  Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man.  Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.
I can only imagine the pain of having your home destroyed, your parents murdered and then as a young girl being turned into a sex slave. these girls were virgins and considering people died and got married young they don't have to be teenagers, these were probably children.


Implied Rape In-
(Judges 21:10-24 NLT)
    So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children.  "This is what you are to do," they said. "Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin."  Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.
    The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives.  But there were not enough women for all of them.  The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had left this gap in the tribes of Israel.  So the Israelite leaders asked, "How can we find wives for the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead?  There must be heirs for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever.  But we cannot give them our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who does this will fall under God's curse."
    Then they thought of the annual festival of the LORD held in Shiloh, between Lebonah and Bethel, along the east side of the road that goes from Bethel to Shechem.  They told the men of Benjamin who still needed wives, "Go and hide in the vineyards.  When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife!  And when their fathers and brothers come to us in protest, we will tell them, 'Please be understanding.  Let them have your daughters, for we didn't find enough wives for them when we destroyed Jabesh-gilead. And you are not guilty of breaking the vow since you did not give your daughters in marriage to them.'"  So the men of Benjamin did as they were told.  They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the land of their own inheritance.  Then they rebuilt their towns and lived in them.  So the assembly of Israel departed by tribes and families, and they returned to their own homes.

And That Is Merely The Tip Of The Iceberg

Bible WTF Moments

Animal Sacrifice 

Leviticus 1:9: "But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD."

So wait... the LORD likes the smell of burning flesh. That is not a good sign, that is never a good sign, if this were a horror movie it would be time to GTFO.

The Lord Isn't Half As Merciful As You Think

Nahum 1:2-8: The LORD is a jealous God, filled with vengeance and wrath.  He takes revenge on all who oppose him and furiously destroys his enemies!  The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished.  He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm.  The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet.  At his command the oceans and rivers dry up, the lush pastures of Bashan and Carmel fade, and the green forests of Lebanon wilt.  In his presence the mountains quake, and the hills melt away; the earth trembles, and its people are destroyed.  Who can stand before his fierce anger?  Who can survive his burning fury?  His rage blazes forth like fire, and the mountains crumble to dust in his presence.  The LORD is good.  When trouble comes, he is a strong refuge.  And he knows everyone who trusts in him.  But he sweeps away his enemies in an overwhelming flood.  He pursues his foes into the darkness of night.   

uh huh... sounds just as loving a merciful as I remember.

God The Racist

Zephaniah 2:12-15: "You Ethiopians will also be slaughtered by my sword," says the LORD.  And the LORD will strike the lands of the north with his fist.  He will destroy Assyria and make its great capital, Nineveh, a desolate wasteland, parched like a desert.  The city that once was so proud will become a pasture for sheep and cattle.  All sorts of wild animals will settle there.  Owls of many kinds will live among the ruins of its palaces, hooting from the gaping windows.  Rubble will block all the doorways, and the cedar paneling will lie open to the wind and weather.  This is the fate of that boisterous city, once so secure.  "In all the world there is no city as great as I," it boasted.  But now, look how it has become an utter ruin, a place where animals live!  Everyone passing that way will laugh in derision or shake a defiant fist.   

Because Ethiopians aren't allowed nice things.



God The Child Killer

Hosea 9:11-16: The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will die at birth or perish in the womb or never even be conceived.  Even if your children do survive to grow up, I will take them from you.  It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone.  I have watched Israel become as beautiful and pleasant as Tyre.  But now Israel will bring out her children to be slaughtered."  O LORD, what should I request for your people?  I will ask for wombs that don't give birth and breasts that give no milk.  The LORD says, "All their wickedness began at Gilgal; there I began to hate them.  I will drive them from my land because of their evil actions.  I will love them no more because all their leaders are rebels.  The people of Israel are stricken.  Their roots are dried up; they will bear no more fruit.  And if they give birth, I will slaughter their beloved children."

You know, even Jeff the Killer didn't kill babies.

You know what all this really reminds me of??????
It's not my fault I'm a little, as they call me, "off."
It's not my fault I like a little gore.
It's not my fault I like killing. (1 Chronicles 21)
It's not my fault I like killing innocent citizens.(Deuteronomy 3)
It's not my fault I kill the families of children so they can never realise what it is to have a family.
Judges 21
It's not my fault I want to gut everyone or anyone who looks me straight in the eye.
It's not my fault I have strange obsessions over any sort of murder or massacres that has happened on this human world of Earth. 
It's not my fault I cut myself, drinking the blood out of my own veins and drawing the pentagram on the mirror in the liquid that apparently keeps me alive.
It's not my fault I sliced my testicles and fed it to my own flesh and blood.  (Matthew 19:12) (Matthew 26:28)
It's not my fault I love the smell of flesh burning. (Leviticus 1:9)
It's not my fault that the sounds of screams and terrified yells are music to my ears.
I know what you are thinking, I'm pretty much insane. No, you got it all wrong.
Mad, they call me.


When your God can be compared to a psychopathic killer you must question your belief

Why I'm Not Christian

There are a hundred reasons, but it's mainly the interactions I have or have seen on the internet between Christians and anyone who isn't. Here are my many TITs and BOOBs on Christianity (my least favorite religion).

Why Can't You Leave Me Alone?

It's my soul, don't I get a choice as to whether I want to let it burn or not?

It's bad enough that on ash Wednesday I get assaulted and have The Dark Mark put on my head. The ash of course representing death and all-lovely, really got up this morning wanting ash smeared on my head thanks a mill.
It's bad enough that you stop me in the street to talk about God then after you leave I'm held up by the next member of your gang to talk about god.
It's bad enough that you then have to pollute my air with drivel about me burning in hell for not worshipping your god.
It's bad enough you attack gays, atheists and scientists.
But please would you just leave me alone outside of those times. Look I don't care if you say godbless you when I sneeze or send me a Christ-mas card but please don't talk to me about how my friend deserved to die because she was lesbian. Also, please stop saying Pokemon teaches kids to be devil worshippers when it's clearly listening to Christians that makes people want to worship a talking goat demon. I'm sorry but if the people who tell you- "The circumstances of birth are irrelevant, it's what you do with the gift of life that makes you who you are"-Mewtwo in Pokemon the first movie-Are evil then I do not know what good is anymore. Pardon my ignorance

Please kindly read your own book where it tells you not to judge people because that's god's job and kindly stfu

And while you're at it read the desiderata and educate yourself a little.

Why Do We Have To Bring The Bible Into Everything

I understand that it is the sacred text of your religion and all, but you bring it in to play at times that just leaves me standing there gawping at you. For instance I can/can't eat what I want because in the bible it says I can or homosexuality is wrong because the bible said so or the earth isn't 2billion years old because in the bible it says so.
Can I just say this? If Rome wasn't built in a day I highly doubt that the universe was built in seven. You have to remember that God didn't write the bible, Men wrote the bible for god. They interpretted what they were told and wrote it down, you know how unreliable that is? For instance

A 12 year old black male was shot down by six white police officers while carrying a water gun.
Now someone see this seen and writes
A black man was shot by police officers today for carrying a gun.
Then this book is translated which muddles the message even more
A man with a gun was shot by the police.
It is very easy to misinterpret information even if it's unintentional. Also, if you are going to disregard that then at least read the bible and don't use stupid expressions like 'it's Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve' because then your telling me you believe that a talking snake is behind all of humanity's suffering.

Riddle Me This

Supposedly before Eve ate the forbidden fruit she had no knowledge of evil. How was she to know that disobeying God was bad?

Also, If God knows everything then he must have known that putting a super persuasive talking snake in the garden of Eden was a bad idea.

Further more, God is meant to be a loving a forgiving entity yet he then condemns Eve and all their children for eating a fruit.

While on that subject, why the heck was the fruit so easily attainable? Why not make it a really tall tree that you can't climb?

And let's forget all of that and ask why God would condemn people who never get a chance to even hear about Christianity to hell? How many Inuits have been cooked already?

The Lack of Live and Let Live

Her Deviantart Page
One thing that makes me bare my fangs and want to punch a hole through my computer screen is that Christians seem to go to places like 'Gay Pride' or an Atheist Youtube Channel In mass like vultures settling in on a dying animal and come and spew hatred. I had someone very dear to me commit suicide because she was lesbian. She felt it was an illness, everyone made it feel like it was something wrong with her and she was tortured to death by jeering Christians. But that isn't what gets me, what gets me is that I had the password to her Deviantart account because she didn't go on the computer that often (the cyberbullying was too much). After she died I went on her profile and the sight nearly broke my heart. Endless private notes jeering at her for being Lesbian, some had been posted after she died some had already been open and read. Had this been the last thing she saw before she died? I deleted everything but when I checked again there were more, if I got their accounts deleted they made new ones. Eventually, it subsided... about three months after her death. Their family was utterly destroyed and I haven't been able to contact any of them since.

The Hatred And Intolerance I've Seen

Honestly the most hateful people I meet on the internet are keyboard warrior Christians. There is no other group on the internet that I detest more than the keyboard warrior Christian. As you have probably seen, I detest homophobia but also how they react to anyone who isn't Christian. I'm not a fan of the idea of religion, it's just another way to label people and deprive them of their individuality but Christianity is my number one most hated religion. Not because of the philosophy behind it which is good mostly, do as you be done by etc, but the people it produces and the level of ignorance and intolerance.

I know ignorance and intolerance aren't exclusive to Christians but please do tell of any other religion that is quite as ferocious as this one? It is probably more apparent because so many people belong to that religion and they seem to be quite vocal and I'm sure there are Christians who aren't like this but... it's all I see.

I remember one year I was in religion class and the first thing the teacher did was ask
"How many of you go to church every Sunday?"
Very few hands were raised so the teacher than boomed
"Do we have a classroom full of atheists?"
Insulted that he didn't even consider any other religion I said "Sir just because you go to church doesn't mean you believe in God"
A laugh went through the class and he smirked, self assured
"But going to church is part of loving God"
I replied "You mean The Christian god."
He laughed me off "of course without a Christian god you wouldn't have a moral compass"
"I'm not a Christian sir, and I have a moral compass."
"Yess but your surrounded by Christians it must have rubbed off on you"
"Yeah. That's why no one from our school is allowed to visit the shops during the day because they think we're all shop lifters or why my bag gets cut up if I leave it unattended too long. I can feel those Christian moral rubbing off on me."
"Well that's nothing to do with Christianity."
"Well if you say that you can only have morals if you are Christian and as a Christian school we have a reputation of thievery and vandalism then shouldn't we find some new morals because this compass is pointing south." Needless to say, you can imagine the trouble I got in and it continued for a year. I had to listen to him condemn Arabs and muslims and say things like "If they had Christianity they wouldn't be evil." As if they were all terrorists or something. It was sickening and my voice was just lost and pushed to the back...but it never stopped me trying to get him to listen to reason.

The Turning Point For Me

I think the turning point was when I watched a heartbreaking short film about homosexuality where being straight or 'hetero' was weird. The main character, a little primary school girl, commits suicide while her mothers argue about what's wrong with her.

It really stung me with it's potent and poignant message and made me think of Oakley. I'm pretty sure I cried, but at the same time I felt some happiness that someone had made this video. I felt sure anyone who saw it would stop hating LGBT people forever and see their own serious problems. I honestly have too much faith in people sometimes... I made the mistake of scrolling into the comments...
Wow. I understand entirely now because you put together such a wonderful argument.


Such a typical response it's sickens me

Please notice the MLP icon-He is not loving or tolerating the shit out of anyone today
Except, You know, Lots of gay animals in nature as population control


I didn't think it would be possible to pour so much contempt out of your heart after watching a little girl die... but they managed it. So many of them managed it with such practiced ease. That's when I knew that I could never be a Christian. If being Christian somehow meant I would be associated with these people than it wasn't worth it and never could be.

Why I Support Vegetarians

Hello everyone, I've been getting lots of hate since I published my article on things people say to vegetarians. Can I remind everyone of the title of this blog? My Incredibly Big Overly Opinionated Beliefs. That said a lot of people asked why I supported vegetarians and vegans even though I'm not one. Well my response to that is I support a lot of things that I'm not apart of, I support homosexuality for instance, but I've never so much as kissed a girl. I support cancer research even though I neither have cancer or know anyone with cancer. I will support anything that I personally believe is right or just no matter if people try and say it's wrong. It is my decision and cannot be dictated to me by anyone.

Why Aren't You A Vegetarian Then?

Well I try my best but where I live the soil quality is very poor which means any vegetables grown here don't have as many nutrients as they should. I also live very rurally so finding the foods necessary to complete my diet can become very hard. So when I buy meat I buy it from the local farm where I can see out of my bedroom window that the animals are taken care of or I buy meat from the local hunter who uses every bit of the meat so nothing goes to waste. I only eat meat a few times a month and abstain from it as much as possible.

Well Then You Have No Right To Question Me! Rawr

Well if your being stupid or you are abusing a vegetarian or your making up stuff do you think I'm just going to stand here? I don't care if we are on the same 'side' not that there really are sides, if you are doing something wrong or acting vulgar I am going to pull you up on it. The same way that even though I'm white if I saw a bunch of white kids beating up a black kid I'm going to intervene because all that matters is doing The Right Thing not The Right Thing For You. Most of these debates are actually just warring egos and it has to stop.

TIT: We All Need To Examine The Reasons We Do The Things We Do

For instance, do we eat meat because we believe it is healthier than a vegetarian diet?
Or maybe because it's easy? Or because most people eat meat?
Do we not eat meat because we think that is healthier? Or maybe because we don't want animals to suffer? For some maybe it makes them feel superior or maybe the thought of eating something that was once alive makes you feel sick.

We need to know why we do things, then we need to decide if we are doing the right things without our ego getting in the way. So...
Meat Eater: I eat meat because I think eating meat is healthier than not.
Vegetarian/Vegan: Actually it isn't necessarily healthier, you have a greater risk of heart disease.
M.E: But we've been eating meat for years how can it be wrong?
V/V: We discriminated against black people for years, it doesn't mean it was right. Here just look at this evidence that shows you can live healthily on a vegetarian diet. Also, no animals will have to die.
M.E: So we can live without meat... and in doing so save the lives of hundreds of animals. I'll have to research this myself.

We cannot let our ego's prevent us from taking on new information. You can learn something from everyone you just need to have an open mind. You need to be open to change because even in nature it's the creatures that adapt to their environment best that survive not the ones too stubborn to change.

Try and remember not just what is good for you but also what is good for the world!

To change the world you need to be able to change the way you look at the world. You will only be held back by being close-minded and even if you disagree ask yourself why you disagree and ask yourself if you have a valid reason for disagreeing.
