“Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.” -Thomas Jefferson
I love this quote. One of my weaknesses is being indecisive because of all of the options of truth. At this point in my life, I consider myself agnostic. I like science because they have some proof, but who the hell knows for sure?
I’m a very open-minded person though. I want to get in discussions about religion because maybe you know better than me. Which leads me to another quote:
“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” -Voltaire
I really like this quote also because who really fucking cares what other people think? Let them think that. Even if what they are saying is unfathomable to you, let them say it. It may lead you toward something brilliant.
Everybody has good in them. Nobody is completely bad, and I will stand by that statement until I’m in the ground. Take the Westboro Baptist Church for example. They protested at my school because people are fairly open-minded there and we have a large number of gay students. I completely disagree with their message, but they’re passionate about it and that’s something I admire. Even in the midst of all of that hate, they’re still coming together for a common goal, and that in itself is difficult. Let them protest. They have every right. Just like I have every right to say if there is a hell, I hope those people get to hang out there after they’ve died and see what they’ve put people through.
I’m also good at rambling. Maybe that’s healthy though. I have a lot to say, even if nobody reads it.
So ask me some questions and let’s have some deep conversations.
