Bill Nye is Awesome!

I love this man:
Taken from article

And now I have even more reason to love him:
"And I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine, but don't make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can - we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.
"It's just really a hard thing, it's really a hard thing. You know, in another couple of centuries that world view, I'm sure, will be, it just won't exist. There's no evidence for it."
Taken from this article on Yahoo. I miss his show. On the bright side, I've found a website that has all of the episodes.

Back to laundry!

First Day of School!

Hey everyone!!!

     Today my fiance and I started the class that we are taking together. Fortunately, the class is with one of my favourite professors (Hey, Prof! You should give me an A. Also my Walking Dead compendium. I want it back). The class is Western Religious Tradition. It's about the Abrahamic religions and I am super excited about taking the class with my guy.
     Here's the thing, I've taken a lot of religion classes (my minor is World Religion), most of them with this professor (I call him Prof). This, combined with my extensive experience with Christians, has led me to read who will excel in classes about religion and who will struggle or drop the class. As my fiance (who will be known as FH from now on) and I walked out of the class, I turned to him and said "I bet you fifty dollars that the older blonde lady will drop the class by the halfway point." I said this because Prof asked "If God knows everything, how can there be free will?" during a game that he calls "Coffeehouse Atheist" in which he says cliche phrases that a lot of atheists spew out. He's not saying that these are not valid questions, just that there are a lot better questions that you can ask. Anyway, this lady had a mini identity crisis during this "game." It was totally nuts. She couldn't wrap her head around the fact that her god is not all loving. She even said "I'm thinking things that I shouldn't be thinking!"

In other words, she has never thought about her religion academically. She has never questioned her faith. I started questioning my Pentecostal faith at 9 years old. I can't imagine going through my life without questioning things that people tell me.

I'll keep everyone updated on what happens!

This Just In: People Are Morons!

I think it's because I like controversy...

So, my mom's cousin posted this on their facebook wall and hilarity ensued!

My family is weird.

What Do You Think God Would Look Like?

I have found God, and He is here on Earth!

Brian May

65 years old and he still rocks the socks off of everyone in the room! Look at this:

It's Brian May Jesus!

That would be an awesome action figure, right?

Rock on, Brian!
