Chloë Moretz in Hick
Rainbow knickers implies she is a lesbian. SCORE!
firstly, I apologise. spoiler alert, it sort of continues like that, but first things first and stuff. i didn’t realise this was so offensive, and I’m really sorry about that.
my intentions dont really matter because it was still wrong and upsetting regardless and I apologise for that also. I was explaining my personal view of the aspects which I suddenly realised I could relate to after all. in my own head I thought some things and was thinking aloud (whilst filming it) about whether this was also something religious people thought, even though I don’t understand and may not share many other aspects of this complicated and subjective thing. However I see now that it came across like I actually was talking about other people and trying to explain why they have their beliefs, which I apologise for because that is, as you pointed out, a terrible and asshattish thing to do. I don’t want to speculate why people believe in God, and I apologise for how talking about why I personally might totally came across like I was trying to do that. it did come across that way, super awful. also these were only initial thoughts but it came across like I was saying them conclusively and as if I had actually thought them through, when I hadn’t and I was obviously just saying stuff with no authority or actual knowledge. I apologise for this move
also, ‘people with religious beliefs’ aren’t really ‘other’, I mean I don’t finitely not believe in God, and I think a lot of people do. does society really look at people in that ‘poor darling’ way? I’m sorry if I have. a lot of things are unexplained, like consciousness like you mentioned, I don’t understand how scientific reactions could cause that either, it’s all a bit confusing
thank you for making a post about it. I know that sometimes when filled with anger it is hard to actually explain yourself to the person who has caused the anger. because like you obviously dont have to help the person out by explaining things like that, but when you do it is really useful and stuff. get mad and yell at me. tell me why I’m an asshole. it’s great and helpful. I’m sorry. I apologise.
Here’s one I did last night

Because let’s face it all the post are hilarious.
Sherly wants the cat off the computer.
I love this episode
A gif on tumblr of Vanessa Hudgens lead my friend to have an “epiphany”. I put epiphany in brackets because I found what she said incredibly insulting, ignorant and radiated the kind of asshatery that makes you burn with furious rage. When say “you”, I actually mean me but the event is so painful that I have to use the second person. She told me that she never understood why people were religious, she always assumed it was because something happened to when you die, which is obviously ridiculous because she “can’t really see why people would think something happens ”. Her realisation is that it was something to do with God having a plan and praying not to feel complacent when bad things happen. Honestly I think these thing only impact the people, who already believe pretty strongly believe in the idea of a god. But I mean there have been worse occasion, where people come up with their amateur speculations about those crazy believer. This is one of the reasons I gave up talking to religion and avoid the topic like the plague. Suddenly religion is a “us and them” subject, where if you believe in a God you might as well be in a freak show. The kindest comment about religion seems to be “look at the poor darling, actually believing in God” and ” oh how society has wronged those poor souls”, which is so condescending.
I am by no means an expert on the matter but I can only assume that people believe in god for the same reason I believed/believe/ agnostic-so-I-don’t-know-if-I-believe in god is do with the ideals that religion preaches. So naturally I think when other people read it’s values they see something that they agree with strongly and that they think is profoundly true. They maybe know that talking snakes are fictional but believe strongly in the meanings behind the metaphor.
I think also science doesn’t really explain things adequately. I think the most significant is consciousness. The idea that everything you think and do is product of a chemical reactions seems a bit far-fetched. The emotions you are feeling, the thought you are thinking and the actions you make are just there because of dead cold chemical reactions.
Finally it’s because praying and meditating on bible verses gives me a sense of peace that nothing else really offers. Such an intense calm I can’t really explain it. It is very nice
