there’s something really satisfying about the brown rice, baked tofu, purple cabbage, carrot and peanut-ginger sauce bowl I’m eating right now :-)
But if you also think that the Bible tells you that you can’t stamp a piece of paper because you’ll be complicit in some evil deed, then you should not have a job that requires you to stamp a piece of paper. You should get a new job. Have you tried cooking meth? The Bible says literally nothing about meth. Nothing.” —Rebecca Watson, “Dear Theist: Do Your Job or Find Another”
If you believe that it’s normal and healthy to think about things that you would never actually do; that expressing anger is often useful and healthy; that good people should resist evil and oppression; that people’s sexual and marital lives are nobody’s business but their own; that people of different faiths, perhaps even of no faith at all, can still be good people; that you shouldn’t just believe what you’re told; that women and men should have equal marital rights; that actions speak louder than words and beliefs; that religion shouldn’t divide people; that fact-checking is a valuable skill; and that it’s more important to treat each other well than to have the exact right religious doctrine… then good for you. I think so, too. But if you believe that the Gospels reflect the reality of his life and teachings, then apparently Jesus didn’t.” —Greta Christina, The Messed Up Teachings of Jesus
I stupidly burned my hand while baking cookies for work tomorrow. The good news is that they turned out perfectly. The bad news is that I have to keep my hand in cold water or the pain is unbearable :-(
They better like these damn cookies.
Woke up this morning from a dream in which Liverpool won 2-0 over Everton and that was what the score ended up being today. If I was an unskeptical person I’m sure I’d be quite pleased with myself, but as it is, I’m just happy with the win :-)
