cultivatingty: I’ve been thinking a bit about this perspective on agnosticism, shared recently by Sharanam. In response, I thought I’d share another perspective that particularly resonates with me: The force of the term “agnosticism” has been lost. It has come to mean: not to hold an…

Moments Of Distraction: RUN It's an opinion →
alexds1: I’m getting a little tired of this idea that everything eventually needs to be made into a movie, as if the film format is the ultimate validation of an idea. To my biologist brain, it reminds me of the misconception that humans are at the top of the evolutionary ladder because we…
Life only asks of you what it knows you can handle I have grown to rather despise this quote over the years… it seems to be quoted continuously by some, in an attempt to feel strong or in control. This idea of taking control is erroneous, and so is the quote. Life doesn’t ask anything - it simply happens.
Life is too important to be taken seriously.– Oscar Wilde
bwnblog: I’m not very political and can’t honestly say I have a big opinion on things like the war (besides the obvious fact war is bad); but when someone you went to school with was killed in action, it makes it a little more real. I didn’t know him but it still puts things in perspective. That is one thing I think many politicians fail to recognize. How many of them know someone killed in the...

I’ve lost any sense of purpose in my life over the past few months… nothing seems to hold much point anymore and it can’t continue this way. The problem is, I have far from been wallowing in it, just blindly giving up - I have put myself through plenty of thought and I just get nowhere. I don’t hold any value on accumulating wealth, I have no faith in some...

Non-existent 'Rape Culture'
libertarians: Society teaches girls how “not to get raped” instead of teaching boys “not to rape” because rapists aren’t rational fucking people. I would much rather spend an entire year teaching a girl how to properly use a handgun as opposed to teaching some jackass why it’s bad to rape.
