A little while ago, someone on Facebook posted a very dangerous video. It was from a priest of some indeterminable denomination and it contained a very errant message.
Here’s a conundrum that has eluded the concept of logic for centuries. Our government wants us to pay taxes. Fair enough. Otherwise they wouldn’t have any money. The government also wants us to figure out how much to pay them. We figure this out by having the government send us a W-2 form. Anyone else catch what’s wrong with this particular scenario?
A free press is a magnificent thing, but sometimes, I worry that the we (I can say being a member of said community – yes, I am.) might get in our own way sometimes. Picture this scenario. I can see it starting like this:
If god is all knowing and all watching, why do we have to dedicate so much time to letting him know that we know he’s watching and we… what? Appreciate it? But if he knows all, then doesn’t he know we’re appreciative of his works?
I’ve heard it called the “Original Sin,” but is it? Why exactly is “sex” a sin? It is, biologically speaking, the act of creating more humans. Having a deity that says procreation is a bad idea makes very little sense. If we didn’t do it, us lowly humans would die out and then there wouldn’t be anyone left to worship anyone, would there?
Apparently, it’s news that the Houston Astros are capable of watching television and telling their players about it. What a crime!
I’m going to let you know up front, this post is born out of my own ignorance. It concerns a subject that is sensitive to many people and, so you know, I’m on the side of the women on this one. I have no problem with the movement I am about to talk about, I would have been in favor of it if I were around when all this happened. I do not want it reversed. I would, however, like it to have a different name for the movement and it’s followers as the one it has makes remarkably little sense to me. The words in question, in my mind, are “Sufferage” and “Sufferagette.”
No, seriously. The DC Universe is riddled with better female characters than the fairly inept Harley Quinn.
I’m asked periodically, how I can be an atheist. The answer is simple, organized religions really don’t make a whole lot of sense. Most of them.
Television and movies have, all too often, shown the ugly side of religions and, unfortunately, many people believe the way the people on TV do.
As you’ve probably noticed, there are a lot of things I don’t understand. I think there are a lot of things everyone doesn’t understand. In this particular instance, I’m referring to whether or not a particular food is good for you – specifically: avacados.
