I represent objectivism amongst my atheist peers

And I spoke up about it… Rather I rambled at 3 AM in response to the article about how Misogyny may basically what ruins atheism. It is funny because a part of me loves to see the structure of something become another thing. The principle of a remix, for a musical mind. But in an organization - you can see what it’s really made of when it’s challenged within.

I rediscovered one thing about myself, above all, I am a humanist. So, I challenge atheists at every chance in a healthy conversational way because I am friends with them and will make use of rhetoric.

I discovered something new: if Atheism is based on the lack of belief in a god of any sort, then in reality Atheism cannot exist. You cannot believe anything then based on one’s Atheism. And those who claim superiority in intellect for grasping the concept of nothingness in that field of what was faith… Or something, anyhow, that’s so close minded I can just smell the hypocrisy.

So, I feel much better talking to atheists now that I have this wonderful conversation piece. I really like what it does to the conversation. Basically, you have beliefs that are there. If Atheism is mentioned it must be nullified. An interesting practice in whittling down to what is true about one’s beliefs.

Ignition

A billion sparks impossible
unimpressive without fuel
A kiss began with little thought
Lips, parted, connected, [redacted]

I felt sick, can’t take back
My heart lost in thought
Can’t remember what a beat feels like
trying hard to leave my mind

Fight Fight Fight a fire
Douse it in regret
Keep it as a pet
Ashes and flame
Call your name
Ignite your reasoning
You’re the one to blame

Samples of smoke
Stain the synapse
It’s a missed life crisis
I’m feeling [sic]
I’m getting better
At recognizing whim

It isn’t him
It isn’t her
not anyone in particular
It’s all the rage
And anger stays
When you let it out

Fight Fight Fight a fire
Douse it in regret
Keep it as a pet
Ashes and flame
Call your name
Ignite your reasoning
You’re the one to blame

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel

reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better

READ THE COMMENT

It was not Vin Diesel, it was director James Gunn

http://www.ramascreen.com/heres-that-guardians-of-the-galaxy-dancing-baby-groot-scene-guess-who-really-danced/

It’s the exact quote but attributed somehow completely incorrectly.

You people, liars, all of you.

I’d pay good money to see wil wheaton and adam baldwin fistfight over politics

There is no way Wil is that fucking stupid. Is he not paying attention to what ISIS is doing? What is that tweet from Adam even saying? 

Wil really is that stupid, don’t worry.
My teacher pretty much said the same thing, that ISIS is some conspiracy by the US government and somehow isn’t real.

I….
the amount of ignorance….
Have they not seen the videos? Read the stories from survivors? 
*high pitched screaming*

"The videos are staged, to get attention away from our greedy, capitalist society"

Why are they teaching or bringing their politics into a classroom that has no need for them?

Because that’s how educators happen?
It is the opinion of a passionate person that drives them to knowledge; moreso, a greater desire than that to teach others.
As an educator, it is my impression you have a lot to learn about the subject. If you remove opinions and editorials from classrooms you can no longer model freedom of speech. You’re asking for humans to not express what is their own psychology and design a stale environment. You do not create free thinkers, and radical or critical thought is removed from these fellow and future generations. You may be exempt from that! I just want you to see where I find your statements dangerous.
Conspiracy theories have their place, some are especially true. McCarthy began quite the conspiracy, a movement to silence a “scary” people. It did not prevail, it was a stain on our history.
I have spent a lot of my time reading up on ISIS, and it is just a hell of a lot of info to digest. Unfortunately, we are lied to all the time. Education is about bringing light, and some consider it a devil unto itself. Knowledge is something to be feared when you have something to be afraid of.
Anyhow, I expect all decency in conversation. I came here to discuss terrorists, not have a bad time.

I had a history teacher who used to rant about the moon landing being a hoax and would take time out of the class to talk about his conspiracy theories. That isn’t teaching anyone, that’s pushing your theories onto kids. It didn’t open us up to new ideas, because he never entertained any ideas that didn’t fit with his own. He was quickly replaced by someone who actually taught the class and we, the students, were relieved because then we weren’t behind anymore.
I’m not asking for humans to not express themselves, I’m asking for teachers to do their jobs and teach the subject and not that 9/11 was an inside job or that ISIS’s videos are made up. I ask that political ideologies, just like religious ideologies not be brought up whilst teaching when they aren’t needed. I ask for an unbiased learning environment.
Express yourself all you want, but don’t sit there and take class time away to talk about your conspiracy theories. That’s what that teacher was doing and that doesn’t fly with me. Or at least if you want to express yourself, don’t be surprised when parents come into the school to discuss why their son is coming home talking about ISIS being fake when he should have been learning about WWII or something completely different.

That makes more sense.
I may have read what you’re saying in the same light as all the newshound politifact I don’t know… Super scared bloggers out there. Reading about terrorism and going to the comments section, people say some stupid stuff.
It came off similarly arrogant, but that provides greater context. I thought you were advocating a stupid learning environment, rather you are annoyed people are taking away from actual education. I can’t argue that. Ha.
By the way, have you seen the video on how it couldn’t have been faked, due to the technology at the time? That’s a fun video to drop into that conversation.

I would hate a learning environment that’d keep my kid stupid. I hated it as a kid as much as I hated the moon landing hoaxer teacher. The best teachers I had were the ones that fostered discussion without getting into it. They’d come up with a debate question and split us up and let us have at it. We’d end up having to advocate for the side we may not have agreed with but we’d learn the other side that way. The teacher’s thoughts were never known on it so we were graded based on our work and not on whether they agreed or not, something a few of my middle school teachers were guilty of…
I have not seen the video. Do you happen to have the link or the title?

Here!http://youtu.be/sGXTF6bs1IUI have seen a billion (give or take) moon landing hoax videos so it was refreshing to see a casually explained counter.
