This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.
Amen to the comment
Oh my precious lambs:
Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:
"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)
Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.
But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting.
People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.
"Stop teaching science, it offends me"
OKAY YES THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!
As a Christian, I understand that fucking science is a thing. Like holy fuck balls there are so many Christians out there opposed to science because science and Christianity cannot exist in the same world like I DO NOT KNOW WHAT FUCKING GLITTER GLUE YOURE SNIFFING BUT STAY AWAY FROM ME
Bottom line, Christians need to understand that God created such things for it all to work out in a bigger plan. He made the minute details of the light rays and the Earth’s axis being on such a finite point and I understand like 99% of you will disagree because you don’t believe in our God, and that’s okay, but let me just spit some shit for those who don’t understand.
He, God, put so much detail into creation! Like you think that he had nothing to do with science and the fact that waves are made by the moon and magnetic fields and fuCKING GRAVITY
SCIENCE AND FAITH GO HAND IN HAND
THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF HIS CREATION
GOD IS SUCH A FUCKING BAMF THAT HE CREATED ALL OF THE EARTH AND ALL. THE. SCIENTIFIC. DETAILS
