10 reasons Religion is Immoral1) You can't question faith.10 reasons Religion is Immoral4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The religious texts are believed despite mountains of evidence against them- If they were anything other than 'Holy' they would be sitting next to Harry Potter and Twilight right now. 'Because God said so' or 'Because I have faith' does not prove anything, anymore than me believing in Dragons because I saw one on a Welsh Flag and my flatmate told me the DO exist. It is also completely illogical for a society which relies in science to have such an attitude, I know enough from my boring statistics work that you need a LOT of evidence just to say 'this does not disprove the hypothesis'. But if I say 'you don't get healed by magic water' I'm ganna go to hell.
2) It stands in the way of scientific discoveries and evidence.
Religion prevents real science from being developed and understood by a significant amount of society, such as Geneses being taught in schools as fact, and Darwin being given as much regard as a crazy homeless man shouting in the street.
The Twilight SongOkay, so I got the idea for another anti-Twilight ditty, and I couldn't help myself. This goes to the tune of Billy Joel's "Piano Man", another personal favorite. Get your harmonicas ready!The Twilight Song4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
~ * ~
Once upon a time, there was a girl
Known to the world as Bella Swann
Kind of a funny and quirky kid
Doesn't know half of what's going on
One day, she bumped into some vampire dude
Yeah, Edward Cullen was his name
Oh, he's such a big shot,
So incredibly hot
How come he doesn't burst into flames?
Sing us a song
It's the Twilight song
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for some amusement
And you'll have us laughing all night
Now Jacob the wolf-man's a friend of hers
He wants Bella for his own
But to his great chagrin
Bella only likes men
Who sparkle, and are colder than stone
The one and only thing Bella dreams about
Is how to become a vampire, too
And she's willing to do whatever it takes
To make that fantasy come true
On WritingTo be a good writer, you have to be a Man. Not just a man, but a Man. I envy the hell out of chicks that decide to write mainstream fiction. Rehash a few awkward or painful teenage memories, chuck your crystallized adolescence into the defroster and pawn it off to Oprah, ba-da-bing, youre a millionaire. Not with guys. Oprah doesnt have your back if youre swingin around a dick. Did you see what she did to James Frey? Jesus. That should teach him to potentially exaggerate any fragment of a story.On Writing7 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Writing is easy. Anyone with a superiority complex and a pen is already a writer. But to be a good writer, one of them literary-types who actually sell books, you have to toe the borderline of godhood. You have to eat lightening and shit victory. You have to drink like Hemingway and be at least 70% more bulletproof. You have to be able to chop down a redwood with your knuckles and whittle it into a massive club using only your teeth.

behind the gears
of my clockwork heart
when you were near
the symmetry of our
mechanisms astounded me
and so I hid away
and tried to match
my artificial breath
with the eternal beat
of my elegant machine
to no avail
shaking hands are no
match for oiled seeds
of power that create
a miraculous world
and a shaking body
cannot withstand the might
of the heat you'd bring
with your flaming words
and smokey intentions
that would glint off
of my shimmering surface
as I hid behind
my clockwork heart
that could not sound
an irregular beat
to betray the emotions
that were not mine
for I am cold iron
and burnt steel
and you are too soft
for my love
and will never know
that hide behind

Imagine this: you're a guy and you're joking around with your girlfriend. You're tickling each other, poking and laughing, then you grab one of her love handles and get slapped. Everything was hunky-dory in your mind, and now your face is stinging. All you can do is sit there in utter bewilderment thinking, "What the hell happened?"
You, my friend, came into contact with one of the sides of what my dad calls The Devil's Triangle. In essence, it's a 3-dimensional triangle (a 3-sided pyramid) that encompasses the three aspects of a woman you never EVER discuss or joke about: age, weight, and physical appearance. The three sides converge into a point at which is waiting a big rifle ready to blow your pretty little head off. That isn't to say the woman will actually shoot you for violating the triangle, but you can rest assured something bad is in store.

Hi there, my name is Ahsroth, and I am here to help you, with my five part basic guide to the 'Real World'.
There are times in our lives we just can't avoid it. Times when we are dragged from the comforting glow of our computer screens. Times when all our online super powers are of no use. Yes, I'm talking about the times we have to enter the 'Real World'.

How do I rightly explain the Real World? Until you have been there yourself, you can never truly know. There are some things you must remember about the Real World.
1. You can actually get hurt. Actual physical pain. The Real World is a very dangerous place. You cannot heal yourself with magic, you need things called bandages. This takes EFFORT. And also, if you flame people in the Real World, they can beat you up. I will later teach you how to avoid situations like this.

We walk into the woods
The wind sighs gently
And again I feel safe
Like I am invincible
But then the clouds move in
And the lightning strikes
And you are not there
There is no one there
Because in the end we are alone
We are islands in the sea
Occasionally grabbing a glimpse
But never being able to truly connect
We are the damned
To walk alone in this world filled with life
We don't have to be lonely
As long as we accept what we are
And accept others as who they are,
Then we will truly never be alone
Hand in hand
We walk into the woods

Goodbye, Twilight, GoodbyeNot so long ago,Goodbye, Twilight, Goodbye4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Maybe yesterday, or so
There came this new thing they called "Twilight"
They said it had thrills and romance
So I thought I'd give it a chance
I figured, at the least, it'd be all right
But this book, it just didn't please me
All that it did was make me queasy
The writing was beastly
The characters were sleazy
What a most unpleasant surprise
Had to use Windex to clean my eyes
And I made a vow, there and then,
To never read Twilight again
Goodbye, Twilight, goodbye
See you later, alligator
You are out of my life
We don't need you to pollute innocent young minds
I say, this will be the day the craze dies
This will be the day the craze dies
Tell me, Stephenie Meyer,
What is it with these sparkling vampires?
That just sounds completely dumb
Anybody with half a mind
Knows these guys don't sparkle and shine
They just sizzle to a crisp in the sun
And why should a girl be called Bella?
Why should she fall for some dead fella?

Thine Wasted NuggetsThe Kitsune of Sylver didst one day desire,Thine Wasted Nuggets3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A mouthful of nuggets, lest their body retire.
A source of the food they soon did find,
Yet the numbers of which, were still undefined.
"At last, a Wendys!" they shouted with joy,
Though this glee could not last as the ordering would annoy.
"I want 10 nuggets." said Sylver to order,
The voice on the line had their mind back in Mordor.
As they waited they wondered, why an order of ten,
Could take so danged long, with so little to tend.
Finally the fools arrived with her meal,
The quantity of which, Sylver soon did appeal.
"I ordered ten nuggets, yet you bring me times ten."
"And then you charge me an arm and a leg?"
"This does not compute, I'll not entertain your ploy."
"Take back thy nuggets, You infantile boy."
Outraged and confused, the cashier did pursue,
In an unearthly howl, which only prolonged exposure to the fast-food environment can do.
As Sylver readied to leave, the cashier shouted with haste,

And eyes blinded by a hollow light.

Some walk nature's path, hear her voice on the wind!
Some hold their swords high, battle-cries to the gods of old!
Some work the fabric of our world, knotting and weaving they command!
But the same blood flows through us all!
With fiery eyes and souls of steel!
We stand as one, and shall kneel to none!

Alright, so a couple days ago, I was just sitting outside of the school parking lot...But then, a girl came walking up past me and I saw the first Twilight book clutched deeply to her chest... Being me, I gave a slightly disgusted look at the novel and she immediately noticed this, and whipped around and smiled at me.She said, "So, you're looking at this, right? Isn't Twilight the best? Of course you have read it, right? I mean, who hasn't!"... I replied back, "I read half of the first book, but didn't like it so I stopped. Didn't really faze me or anything." Then, all of a sudden, she just started bitching at me about how my opinion doesn't matter, that I'm stupid, and how I was just jealous of Bella because Edward would never want me because I'm weird. Then she said one last thing that made me uneasy.
"I'll get you, bitch. Just you wait."
