Slenderman - MisunderstoodWhy don't you humans get it? I'm not the enemy. I'm just different, that's all. You are not used to seeing my kind. That's no surprise. I am one of two that's left. I also have a cousin, somewhere. The last I heard from him was that he found more of his kind in a world made up of blocks. Are you humans there as well? If so, be careful. Don't make direct eye contact with his kin, they take that as a challenge.Slenderman - Misunderstood2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
You humans naturally fear the unknown. I can relate to that. But, you don't try to understand. Instead, you make assumptions.
Let's take my appearance, for example. My height varies, but I am usually 9 feet tall. I have on a black suit and tie, I can make an infinite amount of black tendrils/tentacles come out of my back, and have no face. I am seen as 'unnatural;' as 'alien;' as 'threatening.' Anything that you humans find unusual that intimidates you is labeled as 'unsafe' and a 'threat to your existence.' You must 'exterminate the

Chapter Twelve- Conquest of The Leader
Part Three- War of the Hulks
Defeating the HYDRA soldiers and leaving all of them incapacitated for the time being, the three heroes searched through the campsite, each investigating anything that would be unusual. It was Hawkeye who discovered a large metal crate, setting a small explosive device upon its hatch, thus unlocking it and allowing the crate to be opened. What Hawkeye, Black Panther, and Gorilla-Man discovered within the metal crate caught their immediate attention, for within the metal crate was... a gamma-bomb!
All of them were informed of The Leader's demads and broadcast, but they never thought that the psychotic gamma villain would be able to pull off such a threat! But it would seem that they underestimated The Leader, but how could they have known that the gamma villain was working with the likes of HYDRA and AIM? Regardless, they knew what had to be done, for if they were to have even the slighte
Realities of Climate ChangeClimate Change is a Reality. This cannot be questioned.

Skeptics- the ones who matter- do not deny climate change, or global warming. That science is Sound. But when the representation of science becomes politicized- as with the Unproven theory of 'man-made' global warming- then we begin to run into problems.
When the media, most politicians, or even people on this site, claim that 'denialists' are nothing but dogged, ranting right-wing bloggers or AM radio hosts, 'creationists,' in the pay of 'Big Oil,' they are at the very least being Specious. Claims that the Bible has anything to do with the situation, are not even worth considering. In fact the entire pur

IntoleranceThe world claims we are intolerant.Intolerance2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That we are weak fools.
Claiming our beliefs are lies
While they worship false knowledge and sparsely dressed idols.
They persecute us and slander our names
While they roll in their adulteries and drink the blood of the saints.
They feed off lies and hide in the shadows,
Persecuting us for following the light.
We put up our crosses and hang our signs
While they scream at us to take it down,
Claiming it is offensive.
But when they hang up images of naked idols and scream profanities and practice their dark arts,
And we ask them to take it down, saying it is offensive,
They merely laugh
And wave us away.
They allow the practice of witchcraft
The screaming of profanities
Encourage evil deeds
Lust for blood spill
Spread deception and harmful rumors
And promote acts of impurity.
Yet they refuse to allow Scripture and the church.
They make it illegal to teach the Word to those who need it most
And punish those who try or even mention its name,

Last time I checked
The world cannot be seen in only black and white
You think you’re so strong
Hiding behind the curtain
You say you’re in control
I’m not that certain
All you seem to desire is ripping open old wounds
But you’re only hurting yourselves and acting like fools
Dividing a nation
For future generations
You want to push the tension to the brink
But you won’t let other people think?!
Just listen to their voice
Their hearts and minds are not to be toyed
Why don’t you genuinely try and make amends
Instead of fueling rotten corruption on both ends
This is not a matter of fate. Both sides chose to drink from the cauldron of hate
Please stop engaging in these hateful campaigns before it’s too late
Stop judging others by the color of their skin

At some point she realized she was breathing.
Sensations came slowly after that. That muffled thudding...her heartbeat, footsteps, or guns in the distance? She tried to open her eyes, but the blackness was absolute. A finger twitched. Her lips - everything was numb - her lips parted and she tried to speak, but everything was muffled, she couldn't move, she couldn't move! She tried to yell and only managed to produce a choked whimper.
A sudden burst of noise and activity, a pinch on her arm, and everything spiraled back into oblivion.
There was a beeping. It was annoying. How long had it been going on?
She slowly pulled herself out of unconsciousness. It was a huge effort to open her eyes, almost an unbearable task to focus them. The stark white and bright light of the room made her headache -- because by god, she had a massive headache --- about ten times worse instantly. An involuntary moan escaped her, which then made her realize just how absolutely foul her mouth tasted. Where

The first is misreading the text, the second is misunderstanding the context, and the third is not reading that section in light of the whole of that section.
The fourth is forgetting who it addresses--that is to say (allegorically) people of a certain heart or disposition.
The fifth is seeing these words distinct from a life that has been lived.
The sixth is to see the Old Testament without considering and making it separate from Wisdom, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes, and to see the New as separate from Christ's example.
The seventh is to see the Old Testament radically distinct from the New--what does Christ cast aside, what does He fulfill, and what does He do in His life?

On AbortionIntroductionOn Abortion2 years ago in Settings More Like This
So people think that it should be OK to kill babies. Here is why they are wrong on so many levels. A fetus is a human. Overpopulation is a myth. Abortion hampers the economy. Abortion increases the risk of breast cancer. These are the problems with abortion.
So You Think A Fetus is not a Person?
When a zygote is made at the moment of conception it already has the attributes needed to be alive. It has the reproduction cells, metabolism, growth, etc. so because of these facts a fetus is already a human and killing it is murder. So if abortion is murder it should be illegal. When fertilization begins a new being has been made with human DNA and it has the qualities needed for life. By the third day several organs including a nervous system are being created. So a fetus is a human, but are you still not convinced? How about a fetus and self-awareness. A fetus can practice its self-awareness in the near future, just like people who are in a coma.

FACT: The HadCRUT3 surface temperature index, produced by the Hadley Centre of the UK Met Office and the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, shows warming to 1878, cooling to 1911, warming to 1941, cooling to 1964, warming to 1998 and cooling through 2011. The warming rate from 1964 to 1998 was the same as the previous warming from 1911 to 1941. Satellites, weather balloons and ground stations all show cooling since 2001. The mild warming of 0.6 to 0.8 C over the 20th century is well within the natural variations recorded in the last millennium. The ground station network suffers from an uneven distribution across the globe; the stations are preferentially located in growing urban and industrial areas ("heat islands"), which show substantially higher readings than adjacent rural areas ("land use effects"). Two science teams have shown that correcting the surface temperature record for

Knowledge is power, and knowledge of climate-change science is serious lacking for a lot of reasons. Those reasons, however, are NOT what the True Believers in 'man-made' global warming would have you believe.
A lot of people on this site believe that things are not as dire as the heavily politicized IPCC and those governments which back it, would have us believe. Most of you do not really have the time to find the information you need to counter the often scientifically illiterate responses you get from those who would blame the human race, and more specifically the Right / Conservatives / Christians / the US / White people, for what we believe is just another phase in half a billion years of climate change.
