Creationism Vs. Evolution: The Argument for Creationism

The question of whether life was intelligently designed or evolved over billions of years has been a major point of contention since Darwin’s On The Origin Of Species was first published in the mid-19th century. Here are the strongest arguments from the creationist side of this ongoing and heated debate:

CREATIONISM

*Evolutionary theory rests on precepts set out by old, obsolete book written over a hundred years ago
*Scientifically corroborated by numerous peer-reviewed Facebook posts
*Banana flawlessly designed for use as fake phone
*Bible verses about molecular mutation and generational metamorphosis in allele frequencies clearly allegorical
*Nine electoral votes in Alabama
*Results of natural selection experiments have only been reproduced a few thousand times in a laboratory
*Archaeopteryx way too awesome to have evolved into shitty birds of today
*Far easier to understand than evolution

Just to top off the irony at work here, Caliborn’s ORIGINAL THE CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL was… stolen. This was posted on the mspa forums by user Nakkirz in 2010, before Lord English was revealed! Bet he never expected this to become “canon” in the end!
Of course, 99% of fanart depicted him as a bishie Final Fantasy villain looking guy in the vein of this art. Honestly this is one of the better looking ones though! 

The artist is actually laughing hysterically right now.

(note: this is the artist’s alt account)

that’s incredible

New York City: ‘Justice for Jennifer Laude! U.S. out of the Philippines!’ October 15, 2014

A rainy New York rush hour didn’t deter over 50 Filipino-American activists, transgender people and supporters who rallied outside the Philippines Consulate October 15, chanting “We say no to the VFA! Fight transphobia every day for Jennifer Laude!”

Laude, a transgender Filipina woman, was found strangled in a hotel room in Olongapo City, the Philippines, on October 11. A U.S. Marine suspected of her murder is being held by Pentagon authorities aboard a Navy ship.

“We are outraged that another innocent life has been taken away because of the ongoing infestation of U.S. troops who have no right to be in the Philippines in the first place,” said BAYAN-USA Chair Bernadette Ellorin.

“We are equally incensed that the U.S. whisked the suspect Marine away and is holding him aboard an American ship, rather than turning him over to Philippine authorities. This shows how the U.S. has no respect for Philippine sovereignty or our country’s legal system.”

Some 660 U.S. military personnel are permanently stationed in the Philippines under the 1999 Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA), and other 1,500 are there now participating in war games. As with other places where U.S. military personnel are stationed around the world, crimes against women are commonplace.

“This insult to Philippine sovereignty is no surprise, given the history of U.S. militarization in the Philippines, said Ellorin. “It also exemplifies exactly why Filipinos are opposed to the Visiting Forces Agreement and the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement. Instead of rushing to implement the EDCA, [President] Aquino should stand up for Philippine sovereignty for once by ensuring that the Philippines asserts complete jurisdiction over Jennifer’s case.”

The October 15 action was called by the BAYAN Queer Caucus, GABRIELA New York, and Barangay New York- LGBTQ Pin@ys, and supported by Trans-Justice of The Audre Lorde Project, the New York City Anti-Violence Project, the International Action Center and others.

Wondering why do you like Lieutenant Pores so much?

WHY DO I LIKE LIEUTENANT PORES?!?!?!!?
I love Lieutenant Pores for a number of reasons here let me list them:

  • He’s a little shit.
  • He’s lazy.
  • He doesn’t like fighting but joined the army anyway.
  • Somehow he always gets injured so he doesn’t have to do any fighting or hard work.
  • Even when he’s fully healed he still lazes around on medical cots.
  • His full name is Aramstos Pores.
  • He created the whole ruse about how he was Captain Kindly.
  • He pretended he had two twins.
  • He’s really smart.
  • I’m pretty sure he survived the entirety of the series without even touching a weapon.
  • Someone gave him some tiny bird bones and he pretended to cough them up as if he was still really sick so he might get some sympathy from Kindly.
  • His banter with Kindly is the best.
  • He’s “Indebted, criminal, misfit, pervert, patriot and insane”.
  • His childhood was kind of shitty.
  • When he was young he dug a pond for all these little minnows he rescued until they were suddenly gone the next day.
  • “‘Pores to Kindly meet in secret when?’”
  • He’s the reason I know who to spell ‘lieutenant’.
  • He’s actually a massive asshole sometimes but he’s not mean or anything okay.
  • He’s ‘mostly a nice guy’.
  • He’s just good at manipulating people (most of the time).
  • Pretty sure he convinced some guys to give him their alcohol so he could check supplies or something, but instead he just went in the back of a tent and drank it all cause he’s a lazy little shit.
  • When she reached to take his arm, he waved her off. Both gestures made his chest hurt, but that was the kind of pain he welcomed these days. Keeping the other kind at bay. (◕︵◕)
  • He gets three title ranks like how awesome is that?
  • When Blistig stabs him he just wants to laugh and thinks: ‘Saves me a night’s march.’
  • Fuck who thinks that when he’s just been stabbed like wow?!?!?!
  • I dunno I just really like him okay. (ノ◕ヮ◕)*:・゚

Personality Types Under Stress: ENFP

myersandbriggs:

ENFPs have a tendency to overextend themselves in both their physical and emotional commitments. Their proclivity to procrastinate and to overlook details complicates their circumstances. ENFPs often move on to new ventures without completing those they have already started. Their charming personalities can show signs of irritability and over-sensitivity when their desires to please different people come into conflict. During times of stress, ENFPs feel alienated. They then engage in deceptions that serve to obscure what is occurring within themselves.

The ENFP finds symbolic meanings behind the immediate circumstances. These meanings are construed as foreboding problems when ENFPs are under stress. Having a pervasive feeling of losing control over their own independent identities, ENFPs will feel virtually split apart by intruding circumstances. They will be “besides themselves” and “just not all there” — as if something, or someone, has taken away the essence of who they are. Not feeling like themselves, the ENFP will become subject to their own feelings of shame for being a phony, a fake or an impostor. If stress continues to grow, they may attribute malevolent schemes to others in order to explain away their fears.
