tbh it kind of bugs me when people are like “I’m giving up Lent for Lent lol”
"you should give up religion for Lent haha" ok cool you’ve been to reddit, you know there’s an actual purpose to abstinence or sacrifice, right
yeah. like, it’s a very…
I disagree, it all comes back to child indoctrination, which in my book is child abuse. If parents force there kids to give up part of their diet in the name of a most likely non-existent deity then that parent is a terrible parent.
I know people who take a break from video games or from their cell phones and I see nothing wrong with that because they don’t frame it as a piece of worship and they don’t so it during
Lent, it a personal choice and something they are normally happy about afterward.
Anonymous asked: Science will not ever explain it because the most fundamental, basic tenet of science, i.e. the *First* Law of Thermodynamics (upon which ALL science is based), is irreconcilable with the idea of something coming from nothing. Everything you said and cited avoids this issue. By the way, citing Scientific American (a "science" magazine) is the entertainment equivalent of TMZ. I would say more but Tumblr limits the length of these posts.
You clearly didn’t understand my last post (x). So, yeah, try reading it again.
Scientific American is like TMZ? News to me. But either way, you’ll find the same facts in any respected modern scientific publication.
p.s. “all of science is based on the first law of thermodynamics”? dude, you really gotta study the structure and theory of science.
The thermodynamics argument doesn’t even deserve a reply

Anonymous asked: Hi. I just wanted to point out something. Even the early Church Fathers warned against taking the book of Genesis literally. Genesis is to be understood for its religious truths only. Today, many Protestants take Genesis literally, which is a mistake. Therefore, Evolution and the book of Genesis don't contradict each other. I believe in God; however regardless of if I belief in Evolution or not, it will not restrict my relationship with God or His Church.
“Many Christians, including BioLogos, like to throw out the “you can’t take the Bible literally” argument. They think it is the ultimate zinger that will end any debate in their favor. But if we shouldn’t take the Bible literally, why should we believe God is real in the literal sense? Perhaps God is a metaphor also. Maybe God is really a metaphor for nature or chance. Heaven forbid! However, BioLogos insists on having it both ways: God is literally true but the Bible is not. That’s like saying Mother Goose is literally true but her nursery rhymes are not.”
Christianity’s number one enemy: A proper education.
This article made me angry, it claims that the reason is so many students are pressured into partying and that the secular classroom has nothing rondo with it.
