I can’t stand Catholicism now. It’s gotten to the point where I feel like religion has caused so much ignorance in science (Nye & Ham’s debate, for one. How illogical can you get? No evidence will sway Ham from his opinion, when Nye just directly states Evidence would change his mind. Evidence should always be how we form our opinions and ideas on things! What the heck Ham), not to mention how religion has really been the factor in gay intolerance, not to mention the whole issue of pro-choice….
If religion didn’t exist, would our world be a lot better? If we had a more effective belief system (i.e, science), then yes. I think it would.

Am I a good person? Deep down, do I even really want to be a good person, or do I only want to seem like a good person so that people (including myself) will approve of me? Is there a difference? How do I ever actually know whether I’m bullshitting myself, morally speaking?

I’ve never posted anything that deserved to go more viral than this.
in online forum posts for classes: saying you “agree” with someone is not holding a conversation you need to engage w the material ppl and connect what we’re learning back to you otherwise wtf are we doing. just taking up long-ass posts saying we agree — i mean, that’s cool if u do, but connect it back to you and your thinking, i want to LEARN FROM ALL OF YOU and i can’t do that if you’re not ENGAGING W THE MATERIAL.
We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.
