“One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.” - Nikola Tesla
If you support an organization (this includes organized religion/religious institutions) which aid in the dispersement of false information about reality to children and adults alike, your good intentions are overshadowed by your own ignorance and you’re a part of the problem, not the solution.
Your “take” or (psychological) “interpretation” of scripture, doctrine, or code is irrelevant when others’ lives are being manipulated at the will of parents, pastors, and peers whom are only capable of being impressionable when the minds they focus on (and surround themselves) have not been adequately equipped with the tools of skepticism in such a way to have refined their critical thinking to a degree for which they are impervious to indoctrination.
The same can be said of political or “powerful” figures, including sources of media and communication.
Scientific literacy is the vaccine against ignorance. And I’m hopeful that we are transitioning into a new Age of Enlightenment whereby religion - which again, we need to remind ourselves, is merely a psychological construct - fades away for a global scientifically literate citizenry capable to solve tomorrow’s problems and embrace our responsibility and stewardship to the universe, instead of being mentally enslaved to ancient human ideologies.
Ignorance is the only weight that anchors our future.

YAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSS FUCK IT UP IN DEUTSCHLAND !
I can never stop posting this. The narrow minded bible fanatics that just look at one small thing in the bible then feed the world with their hate over it. At the same time they ignore all the other silly laws made by man they claimed were made by god. These gif’s say it all.
Take that slut
Ugh my pastor dad does not understand this concept. I love this post
This is a quote from the end of “The Parable of the 10 Minas”. One could argue that this is taken out of context, for the person who issues these orders is not Jesus himself but rather the king in the parable. From everything I’ve read, however, this is exactly the correct context. The parable is interpreted as referring to Jesus’ return to earth as king over all, and the rewards and punishments for those who were asked to spread his ministry. The king in the parable, therefore, is Jesus himself, meting out punishment to those who rejected him. No other interpretation of the parable makes sense.
