This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.
Amen to the comment
Oh my precious lambs:
Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:
"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)
Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.
But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting.
People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.
I love that these ladies basically sent these dudes howlers.
When I was around 9, my mum, grandma, sister and I, went to the beach. My sister and I were digging a whole in the sand and this demon spawn of a kid started throwing sand at us. I told my sister not to do anything and we just sat there while this little shit kept throwing sand. Eventually he ran up to where his mother was sitting to eat(I am pretty sure she had seen at least some of what this little dick was doing). My sister and I thought we were fine but oh no, he came back and started throwing sand at us again, this time he got sand in my sisters eye. NOBODY (but me) THROWS SAND IN MY SISTERS EYE. SO I MARCHED UP TO HIS MOTHER, ALL OF HER FRIENDS WERE WATCHING, I LOOKED HER IN THE EYE AND SAID, “Can you /please/ control your son” with what must have been the sassiest voice a 9 year old could have. Then I just walked off. That kids mum was so embarrassed she started yelling at her kid and we got an apology within a minute. My mum was in hysterics. That has to be the only time I have ever gotten a highfive from my grandma.
Can we just talk about the movie Shrek for a second here?
Here we see the three bears in a cage, the baby bear is crying that it’s too small. Now, back at Shreks swamp we see the baby bear still crying to his father, yet he’s not in a cage, Where’s his mother?
Later on, it shows Lord Farquaads castle and it shows the Mother bear skinned and turned into a rug.
Lord Farquaad SKINNED AND TURNED THE MOTHER BEAR INTO A RUG. THAT’S WHY THE BABY BEAR IS STILL CRYING.
