  • More About Me
    I am a student pursuing my associate's degree in Veterinary Technology in Virginia. My Sun Conure parrot named Skittles is the love of my life and the main reason I went into the veterinary field. I hope to eventually work in zoo and wildlife aviculture and animal behavior with an ultimate goal of becoming an Ornithologist.

  1. So just to be clear, you don't have family living with you that forces you to go, but you instead go out of guilt and fear of disappointing your grandparents? I'm not sure how your grandparents are, so this may be a silly suggestion but have you ever told them you just want a "break" from church? Just say something along the lines of "I need time to be alone and explore my spirituality" or something? Or would they have a coronary if you said that?
  2. So this video popped up on Facebook from a friend who is in the same veterinary technology program as me: http://www.viralnova.com/owen-and-haatchi/ If you don't feel like clicking the link, it's about a boy with a disease that causes his muscles to be constantly tense and a dog with three legs. In the story, the boy is really introverted because he's afraid he'll be judged due to his condition. They then find out about this dog who was tied to a train track and had his leg mangled so it had to be amputated. Apparently they were having difficulty finding a home for it. So I posted in t
  3. Got my first Dr. Who shirt since having been sucked into the fandom with my tax return. I luvs it.

  4. The point is that they believe that Jesus/God is the ultimate cause. WHY he is that cause is debated between xtians, but in the end their answer for everything boils down to "God did it." Even with the Creationists who say that God created the universe through the Big Bang, they still maintain that God was the uncaused cause of the Big Bang. It seems to me that "God" tends to be synonymous with "what hasn't been explained."
  5. If there's one thing I hated about xtianity, it was thinking that I supposedly knew all the answers without actually KNOWING them. Answer: God. How: We'll never understand because God is too crazy awesome for us to comprehend his ways. It feels dishonest to me. I much prefer the more realistic approach. Either we know the answer to something and have a way of explaining it or we don't know the answer to something, we are honest about that fact, and we are working every day to understand it. With xtianity, they have this finality. This notion of "Don't attempt to even try to
  6. Is it me or does it sound like a perfect storm of contradictions for developing OCD? "We should keep trying to get sin out of our lives, even though it's not possible to make that happen. You should still keep trying though." "Dogs should keep chasing their tail. They'll never catch it, but they should keep trying" "You should keep trying to make that picture straight. It'll never be perfectly straight, but you should strive for it to be." "The kitchen will never be clean enough, but you should keep trying to make it perfectly clean." I feel like there's a huge differenc
  7. Just discovered "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog" yesterday. I can't stop rewatching it and marveling in the glory of Neil Patrick Harris' singing voice.

      That is such a funny blog. I watch it about once a month.

      It's so Joss Whedon though with his character murdering tendencies.

  8. Hey all, it's been awhile since I've posted on here because of life and all but I read something and was interested enough to hear your thoughts. There was a vlog post on the Friendly Atheist about being asked to say grace before a meal. What should an atheist (or in this case also assume, agnostic/humanist/secular jew/etc.) do? Should they politely decline? Should they go with the flow and pretend? Hemant Mehta suggested just saying what you're thankful for without mentioning God. So I thought of myself in that position (it doesn't happen because my family knows I'm an atheis
  9. No, I don't believe in a conscious, all-knowing god. Or any of the other ones. Were I to envision some sort of universal entity , I would say I would be somewhat similar to a pandeist. I wouldn't think that this god actually guided anything in the universe or was even aware of it.
  10. Nope, nope, nope. The words always enrage me enough that I just can't listen to that stuff.
  11. People tend to thirst for debate. If the xtians aren't coming for us to debate, we debate about other things. Honestly, I just haven't been paying attention to the stuff BO posts.
  12. I may have worked for the guy, but I wasn't really close to him or anything. I kind of always thought the way people practically worshiped him was creepy. I went to counseling with him once, but that was it. It's my dad whose world of falling apart right now. This was the job he was supposed to spend the rest of his life doing. Now he finds out that all the people around him that he trusted were scum and he could lose his job because of it. He was talking about getting a weekend security job. I told him he would miss church and he said "We don't exactly know what's going to ha
  13. So, those of you on the Facebook group may have heard that the pastor of the church I used to work for (and that my dad currently works for) was arrested with charges of having sex with two minors younger than 14. He is currently facing 7 felonies and had $200k bond in Texas. So he made bond, came back to Virginia and now I have updates that I would like to share. Another pastor of ours was arrested a week prior for basically harassing and threatening someone who was trying to get the head pastor convicted. As of today, the head pastor, the harassment pastor and two other pastors resign
  14. JW just came by. She gave me a book; "What Does The Bible REALLY Teach?", and I can't stop laughing hysterically at this shit.

      Lol, if the JW gave you a book that tells you what the Bible really teaches, it would make any sane person that reads it look at the Bible and say, "WTF is this crap? I don't want to be part of that."

      Page 131 is about how the Bible teaches that you shouldn't get blood transfusions...
