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. 

In short:

People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.

"Stop teaching science, it offends me" 

Yeah, (most) science is true, but it is only true because of God. Yes, this is how a sunset works. But it wouldn’t have to happen. There doesn’t need to be a scientific explanation for it at all! In fact, God could suddenly decide, ya know what, I’m gonna change how a sunset works and all of you scientist would be so messed up and you would have to find a different way to explain what happened. I am not offended by this because I accept that people believe what they want. Do I agree? No! But I’m not gonna be a bible thumper. However, it is true on what was said about other religions and what not. If this brought down Muslims or something everyone would be mad. But because it is Christians, it’s all okay! I just think everyone needs to think about that a moment. Why is it okay to make fun of one religion, and not another?

This isn’t making fun of religion, she was asking how the sunset works and she got an answer whether she liked it or not. I can sit here and ask how does the sunset work if Apollo didn’t exist since in Greek mythology (which used to be religion) he is the god of the sun. 

It’s all that is after that. All I’m saying is everyone believes different things, and everyone should respect that. It goes for Christians too! To me, there wouldn’t be a sun set without God! He set the world into motion, and He keeps it that way. You go with the scientific reasoning, and that is perfectly fine with me. I just wish that this place that was supposed to be “judgement free” was actually judgement free.

Alrighty then, question: How did god create light before he created the sun? 

Also she spelled “there” wrong.

Perspective. 

"Looting? I thought these were supposed to be nonviolent protests"

I know it’s incredible! People are literally coming out of the woodwork to comment on this photoset to focus on the looting headline with “well yes it is nice they were helping people hit with the tear gas, but stealing is still wrong uwu” as if they’re back to kindergarten morality.

Like everyone who’s gone to boot camp I’ve been tear gassed. They put about 50+ of you in a gas chamber and toss it in. You have to stay there until your rank is allowed to exit. Before that though, you have to say your name, rank, and social security number. You then exit and file into ranks (again) outside and are not allowed at any point to rinse your face or eyes for the entire day.

That right there? Easily the worst part of boot camp. My eyes were literally swollen shut. I was blinded for a good 30 minutes and my chest hurt for days.

I have zero problem and not and ounce of judgement for people raiding a mcdonalds that can easily afford to repair damage for ANYTHING to help ease the shittiness that is being tear gassed. Esp because every one of us in boot were medically sound to deal with tear gas. Children, asthmatics, people prone to panic and anxiety attacks, the elderly as sooo many more are NOT going to handle tear gas well at ALL.

Or that smoke the police use either.

It’s easy to sit there and judge someone from the safety of your home and say things like “it’s just tear gas” or “it can’t be that bad”.

Fuck you. As someone who HAS been gassed, you need to stfu.

Also milk at Mcdonalds costs like what, a dollar and change? chill the fuck out brah
