Old Faithful

A blog about how I went from a die-hard Christian to a die-peacefully Atheist

bibledevotionals:

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Matthew 16:24 
For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26


How arrogant- this world and everyone in it is unique and it’s the only one we have. It should be worth everything to you so as to ensure it continues on and humankind can expand beyond our lonely planet. You can take your “not of this world” concept and be gone from history as a stumbling block to human advancement and the survival of all life on this planet. Alternatively you can drop that selfish and bigoted attitude and do something useful rather then hide in your religions and wish us all away.

Jesus on the cross = love.


…after his father (himself) made mankind knowing they would turn against him? “Sorry son, these people we made (I made) yeah well they’re gonna rebel. BUT good news some of them are ok, see they obey these laws I made, annnnd for their sake I’m gonna send you. To die. For them.”

“If we redefine what Scripture calls sin as “not sin”, we mislead people about their need for Jesus.”

—   Albert Mohler  (via heartsings77)

…Because we can’t have women preach and gays marry or else what would Jesus have left to worry about?

The most admirable human. I love you Julia. 

Well my home is earth and instead of wishing it away in favour of a fictional city of Jerusalem in the sky made of gold, I’m going to spend my life ensuring equality and education for all and hope for peace for the future generations- and the ability to explore the universe

This is how the police in the USA handle someone who is “resisting”.  Notice his “resistance”.

The eagerness with which the rotund cop scampered in to tase the unarmed black man with his hands in the air further serves to demonstrate how so many cops join the force for power-tripping opportunities to dish out abuse just like this.

Paranal Observatory in Chile | Via

Paranal Observatory is an astronomical observatory located on the mountains of Cerro Paranal in the Atacama desert of northern Chile, at an altitude of 2,635 meters, about 120 kilometers south of Antofagasta and 80 km north of Taltal. Far from city lights, high above sea level, with more than 350 cloudless days a year, Atacama desert is an ideal location for ground-based astronomy.

The Very Large Telescope (VLT) at Cerro Paranal is European Southern Observatory’s premier site for observations in the visible and infrared light, and at one time, was one of the most powerful optical array in the world. This groundbreaking observatory consist of four separate 8.2 m (320 in) telescopes and a large collection of instruments. Additionally, the four main telescopes can combine their light to operate as a single device.
