My name is Chris, I'm a college student, who is looking to go into the field of game design, maybe theology, maybe physics... Really I just love to learn.

So, in my absence from social media I believed I’ve discovered the importance of fasting. Through depriving myself of social media, and the desires I do have for it, I’ve found recently that other desires, those more sinful, are easier to ignore or abstain from, and I’ve gained an ounce or two more of self-control. As well more of my free time has been spent reading or in prayer which is always a good thing. Chastity is a sin I have struggled with since my decision to convert, as I was always raised in something of a secular “if it feels good, do it” mentality, but over the past few weeks or so, I’ve found it easier to temper such temptations with prayer, and it’s definitely exploded exponentially since this bout of social media “fasting”.

Not sure that I’ll be returning to tumblr full-time, but definitely was excited to share :)

My college geography professor is well bona fide and has been studying "global warming" for 20 years along with Dr. John Christy. In his study so far at 18 years, my professor hasn't recorded a single instance that hints to "global warming." The average overall global temperature has been dropping at -0.01 degrees Celsius per century. He then showed a core sample 420,000 years old that proves Earth's climate cycle. Earth is colder MUCH longer than it is hot. By 10's of thousands of years.

Does that mean we should ignore the Constitution because it says  ”…that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”

It’s their right not to stand for the pledge, but that doesn’t make it any less dickish.

It’s dickish not to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance??

That’s new.

It’s pretty dickish, the Pledge is making a pledge to those who died for you, to the veterans, I refuse to stand when I was young, that was dickish of me, I grew up and started to stand.

As an atheist, when I hear the under god bit, I don’t make an ass out of myself and say I’m discriminated against, I know what the intention of the pledge is.

To be moral is to always do what you feel is right regardless of what the outcome will be.


• Getting hopped up on amphetamines and dancing around naked in traffic may feel right, but the outcome will be terrible.  It is not moral.
• Cheating on your wife/husband may feel right.  It is still not moral.
• Lying under oath to save your ass may feel right.  It is not moral.
• Punching a politician in the nose may feel right, but the outcome won’t be good.  It is not moral.
• Child molesters may think sexually abusing young children feels right.  It is, of course, not moral in any scenario.
I could go on and on, but I believe you got the point.  This is the problem with this “feel good,” “do what you feel,” “I am my own overseer” mentality.  When you put your trust in yourself, you are prone to exceeding your own moral restrictions.  This is why many of the great philosophers believed that a culture without being held accountable to a higher power was destined for immorality.  Mankind is fallible and weak to temptation.  The idea of a higher power put a check on your corrupt behavior.  This is precisely why “Under God” is used as well as why people swear upon the bible.
