Creationism: Not A Childish IdeologyMore Like This
Myths and Misconceptions Concerning Creationism and it's Believers.
The following statements that I will refute are common claims I have heard in my own experience and the experience of other Creationists. While not all evolutionists, be they religious or otherwise, make such claims, a surprising majority does give off this attitude. I made this to clarify biased stereotypes surrounding the subject as I am personally tired of being treated as a naive, and even brainwashed, Christian simply for denying evolution.
I do not expect this commentary to "convert" people, or to win over evolutionist Christians to Creationism (though I encourage you to look into it, as I can not properly explain Creationism in a single stamp commentary). I just want people to know the facts before they make uneducated judgments. I am tolerant of other people embracing evolution, and I respect their choice; all I ask is that I receive the same treatment in return.

SR: Gay Marriage in IllinoisSo the House here in Illinois just passed (61-54) Senate Bill 10 which legalizes 'gay marriage.' The flood of Facebook messages: "Finally" and "I'm so happy" and "#equality." Politicians coming out as gay, companies contorting their image so as to appear inclusive, and anyone who would dare oppose something such as gay marriage are hit with salvo after salvo of "equal protection under the law" and "human/civil rights."More Like This
In all the breakdown of certain values, such as "marriage is not a natural institution" and "marriage is not sacred" among other things lawmakers and individuals alike have decided that the former view of marriage is limiting and prejudiced. Regardless of what you believe I imagine any thoughtful reflection on the whole situation reveals a rather odd phenomenon.
Whereas it seems that everything that was once held as common-sense and true is now irrational and false, the invocation of a universal truth has taken form, not of God or of nature, but of the Constitution.
How A Christian Feels About HomosexualsThere is a very big assumption that has been going around for the past few years, and that is, "If you don't support gay/lesbian couples, you are backwards-thinking, unreasonable and cruel." (Maybe some of you will fight against this shallow thinking in the comments by not only understanding homosexuals, but also understanding Christians?) I hope that this thinking will change overtime, because if homosexuals have a right to voice their beliefs, don't heterosexuals also have a right?More Like This
I don't support the choice homosexuals have made for their lives, but that doesn't mean I hate them. In fact, I actually have a few friends who are bisexual/homosexual.
Now, I do know that there are a few churches who have done very nasty things in protest of gay marriage, but there have also been a few groups of homosexuals who have done equally unreasonable things to "fight back" at these churches. But is it fair to judge the majority of all churches and all C
The Convenience of EqualityMore Like This
The topic of marriage is no stranger to Americans in recent weeks. The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 split decision, ruled that DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) was unconstitutional because it failed to offer homosexuals “equal protection under the law” and that the purpose of DOMA is to “humiliate” and “injure” homosexuals who seek marriage.
No doubt a number of individuals celebrated the ruling, happy, perhaps, to see the archaic edifice of ‘traditional’ marriage burn and establish a sleek and modern “marriage” in its place. Many rejoiced at the new building, but many of us looked on and asked to see the building plans.
Arguments for “marriage equality” are many times the product of convenient reasoning. The typical strain of equality reasoning usually goes along the lines of this: We can’t expect everyone to go by one definition of marriage, nor should the government force one view over the other. Moreover, th
Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixelsThis is a sort of guide on canvas sizes, inches, dpi and pixel x pixels.More Like This
when it came to canvas sizes, I always kind of assumed that inches belonged with dpi and pixels were just pixels and that everyone knew that; but i read a whole bunch of comments on a tumblr blog where someone asked about canvas sizes, and SO MANY people were replying with things such as, "4000x4000 px at 300 dpi" or "2000x2000 px at 200dpi".
and I guess not everyone quite understands what dpi's really used for xD.
DPI = Dots per Inch. It means how many dots will be printed per inch.
DPI is actually used for printing purposes. It shows the printer how much pixels to print per inch, literally. A common printer (at home or even at a lot of printing stores) at best prints at 150dpi most of the time actually; there are some super duper great printers that can print REALLY fine that can go up to ...apparently a lot more xD; #dpi, so that's why everyone usually suggests saving your project at 300dpi; most printers are f
