"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."

He woke up. No longer he was in his room, the damaged relics of a happy childhood, ruined by the farce that the town was all along. No, he was not in the dark, the shelter where he quietly sobbed himself to sleep, the quiet nothingness where they could not see his emotional suffering. Instead of opening the eyes to see nothing, he opened

Common abrahamic excuses that hold little waterCommon abrahamic excuses that hold little water2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
"God gaves us free will, ergo it's pur own fault": Except that the Bible nor the Qu'ran put emphasis on free will. Hell, this excuse is so very recent, that, until a few centuries ago, the idea that God had absolute control over our lives was very popular.
"Its our fault; Adam and Eve's sin created evil, not God!": If you have read Genesis, you'll know this is bullshit (Hell, even Yahweh admits he created evil!). Likewise, at no point is the first sin ever considered a "Pandora's Box" situation.
"God is goodness incarnate! Evil is against his nature!":...have you even read the Bible? Yahweh is also considered to not be goodness incarnate until the NT and Qu'ran; in the OT, he is treated as a Lawful Neutral agent.
"Your're putting everything out of context!": Considering I actually bother to read the Bible/Qu'ran, while you only cherry pick passages your pastor dictates...
"He died for your sins! You should be grateful!":

4 gods you never heard ofMany people chose to worship the retarded judeo-christian YHWH. Here's some less mentally ill alternatives:4 gods you never heard of3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
This was a pre-islamic snake god from Arabia. He was the god of the moon and friendship, also known as Ilumquh and Amm. There is a rather curious Qu'ran quote about him:
"And they say: By no means leave your gods, nor leave Wadd, nor Suwa'; nor Yaghuth, and Ya'uq and Nasr." (Qur'an 71:23)
So, how the hell did we ended up with monotheistic Islam?
A Fijian shark god. He was greatly respected by fishermen because he protected them from any danger at sea and sometimes protected them from evil denizens of the sea. He was once going inland to conquer Kadavu Island through the river when another god challenged him in the form of an octopus. After a great battle, the octopus won (mainly due to his 8 arms which enabled him to hold off the massive shark god's attack) forcing Dakuwaqa to promise to never attack Kadavu again. That is how Dakuwaqa became the
Hate SpeechWhoever reads my texts on Deviant Art (not many anymore, for obvious reasons) can see I'm rather unashamed of making clear as water how much I despise certain people and/or organisations. You can perfectly see how I do not bother to sound reasonable nor to actually convince people to see through my point off view.Hate Speech4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The reason for this is because I'm not using as much propaganda and trying to convert people as much as I'm simply saying how much my enemies suck; whereas you join my side or not isn't actually that relevant, because I'm assuming directly that you, as a reader that I do not know anything about, is not really that smart to figure out that wolfaboos or conservative christians/muslims are bad. Kinda like Encyclopedia Dramatica, only far less charismatic and more silly.
You might see that this hasn't always been the case, and that I was a far more reasonable human being further back in time. However, with all the retards that compose the gallery of imbeciles that I see as toxic
Christian persecutionOn the internet, christians have an odd type of behaviours. They seem to be under the impression that they are persecuted, that they are not free, that they need the existence of save havens like 1923 christian clubs on DA where they can speak without being condemned (which fails epically at logic since everyone in the internet can see their conversations), and whine endlessly about how everyone hates them and God's reign is falling and blah blah blah christian bullshiut blah blah blah.Christian persecution3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
SHUT THE FUCK UP
For begginers, in the western civilasation (which is where most of these whiny christians come from) there is no such thing as christian persecution; in fact, of all places in the world, christians only face significant persecution in a few arabian nations and in China, and in the case of the later and most of the former Christianity is still legal. Second, have a monopoly over western culture, Christianity IS THE ONE OPRESSING EVERYONE ELSE.

6 lies by wolfaboos1- According to wolfaboos, native americans hunted alongside wolves and worshipped them. In reality, native americans at most just respected the wolf as yet another animal; for them, it was no more important than the cougar and the bear. In fact, some tribes like the Navajos actually killed wolves as a rite of passage. As for hunting alongside wolves, they didn't even had dogs, and there's no evidence whatsoever of wolf domestication. Interestingly, south american people did domesticated native fox-like canines, but wolfaboos only care about plain old retarded Canis lupus.6 lies by wolfaboos4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
2- Wolves are not as the smartest animals on Earth, as opposed to the idiotic wolfaboos say; they are very avaerage by animal standards. Things like pigs, elephants, cetaceans, corvids, parrots and apes are far more intelligent than them. Pack hunting is not a sign of intelligence, for most of the behaviour is both instinctive and imitative, and since hyenas and Harris hawks hunt far better in packs than wolve

I accept wisdom and truth; I do not wish to dwell in lies made so that you, honourless coward, can happily mock the universe and try to change reality to fit your horrid notions.
I listen to what other people say; I do not shut the ears Nature gave me and my mind does not words of wisdom, while my tongue [and fingers] defies lies.
I do not discriminate people by their race, gender or sexuality, for everyone is equal, while you attempt to make women your slaves (or, woman should you be, fall to the shit all the horrid prophets say) and your brother who likes men the chair of bones and skin your inhumanly would sit in.

1. Evolution denial
At the present far more evidence supports evolution than anything else. One could argue about the existence of a creator deity or not, but regardless of how life appeared it has ever since evolved. And indeed, the process of evolution, natural selection, is pretty much so obvious that only a lobotomised, mentally ill or blind person could not see it; ever since as early as Ancient Greece that people noticed it, and accepted the changes of the world as real. To add further to the injury, there is no difference between "macro" and "micro" evolution; scientists nowadays use cladistics, not taxonomy, and thus rely on genetics, not ill defined human made definitions, to classify organisms. And so it happens that the difference between a species and another is unclear. However, genetic and morphological change is still there, and it increases generation after generation.
Pterosaur diversity in the endLately I've seen many people who have the erroneous idea pterosaurs were being replaced by birds in the Late Cretaceous. In reality, the evidence availiable does not, in fact, support a long decline as said imbeciles think.Pterosaur diversity in the end4 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
To begin with, lets analyse avian and pterosaurian diversity. Birds began diversifying early in the Cretaceous; Liaoning is a clear evidence of this, presenting a vast menagerie of bird species. In the late Cretaceous birds pretty much only went to populate marine ecosystems, and even so seabirds were already present in the Early Cretaceous, and only diving forms like the Hesperornithes seem to have achieved success; volant forms like Itchyornis were still outnumbered by pterosaurs, or somehow just managed to avoid being preserved. In the late Cretaceous we have footprints of a crane sized bird and remains of large, flightless forms like Gargantuavis, but the first don't seem to have been common (we still don't have fossils of flying, crane sized birds
AnchiornisThis is not the first time I dedicate essays to real animals; once I've spoke of at least three pterosaur linages, though in two I screwed up things a little thanks to a little lack of research. Nonetheless, this being my first essay on real dinosaurs, I decide to disclaim that this is my interpretation of the evidence, and I'd be glad if someone more wise would correct me.Anchiornis4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
As the title states, this is about Anchiornis huxleyi, a small, primitive troodontid from Jurassic China. Later troodontids were ratite sized cursorial omnivores, whose arms were short when compared to other maniraptors like dromeosaurs, but Anchiornis had quite long arms, supporting wing feathers; it did had long legs, but how good a runner it was its difficult to tell, since it had wing feathers on the legs too. Said "hindwings" are also present in early dromeosaurs like Microraptor, the primitive paravian Pedopenna and in early birds, suggesting that flight most likely evolved with the usage
Mesozoic Flying PigsTo most people, pterosaurs are little more than uninteresting, fish eating flying things from the Mesozoic. Such people as a whole fail to realise the many recent scientific discoveries about these animals, and the least of these discoveries is that pterosaurs weren't a bunch of membranous winged seagulls, but a group about as diverse as modern birds. In fact, it is fair to say both groups were equally diverse in terms of lifestyles and forms; some pterosaurs occupied niches modern birds never managed to occupy, and vice versa.Mesozoic Flying Pigs3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Notable pterosaur at that is the genus Dsungaripterus. To most people, it is known as the "shellfish pterosaur", for it is mostly known as a shellfish eater. Reality, however, is far more complex than that.
A single species within this genus is officially recognised, D. weii. While this particular form is known exclusively from what is now China, other members of its clade Dsungaripteridae, occur in Europe and South America; presumably, their distr
PaganismAs a whole, I do not worship any deity, both for the lack of time and things to do so and because I believe that no supernatural entity is worthy of human attention, since they never answer. However, as a misotheistic spiritualist, I like to disreguard logic every once in a while because the idea of the existence of deities is simply awesome. As such, while this is probably just a pointless fantasy, I like to imagine that maybe, just maybe, the fair folk goes around in the forests to piss of people, that there's an Underworld ruled by a benevolent ruler and that the Sun really is trying to kill me.Paganism4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
As just, if I ever followed a religion, I think I'd be a polytheist, because the idea of several forces of nature acting with their own distinct personalities is far more pleasant than the idea that there is a single god watching us all the time. Because that is creepy. Animism is also a rather pleasant idea, though pantheism is just a more privacy-violating version of monotheism (it does pi
