a question…

sexxyyinsanity asked:

I’m in high school and I don’t want to say the ‘under god’ portion of the pledge of allegiance. I want to make a statement to say, I should not be required to say it (as I am an atheist) and for others at my school who are not comfortable with it whether they are of another religion than Christianity or simply atheist/agnostic. Since I go to school in a rather conservative area, I don’t want to cause harm to anyone close to me for my actions. What do you think would be a good way to make a statement about ‘under god’ in the pledge without a horrible backfire to me and others? Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I would say that the best way to go about it is to not say it yourself. If there are any problems that are had with teachers then you should go to the administration and let them know that you don’t have to say the “under god” portion if you don’t want to. If THEY have a problem to it then politely ask them to take it up with the board or superintendent of the school district.

Even if you live in a relatively conservative area, there should be no reason for backlash. if you find yourself being threatened because of this, i’m sure there are organizations that (if approached properly) will fight on your behalf.

This is a totally touchy subject for a lot of people. I would recommend that which action you decide to take, that you are sure it’s what you want to do. Think about your safety first, because that’s more important than making a statement about religion.

I hope that this answered your question.

closertothelost asked: Two questions: 1) do you believe in morality, and 2) if you believe in morals, from where do you believe they originate?

1. I absolutely believe in morality.

2. I believe that morals stem from us. We are personally responsible for morals on a subconscious level. Humans aren’t the only animals capable of it either, I believe I read an article on lab mice showing signs of empathy to other mice, which could possibly mean that they have morals as well.

Just what I think. I really don’t know if i’m right.

Thanks for the questions!

Anonymous asked: I don't want to sound like one of those "OMG THAT WAS OFFENSIVE" people, but I don't think it's ever a good idea to say "if you think that, you can go fucking die." (I'm sorry, not to be a nag, but it didn't come across well at all :-/)

To be honest, I really don’t care.

But I can see where you’re coming from. I’m not going to sit here and pretend that it is in no way offensive, because it was, and you have the right to your opinion.

People that think like that are just the most infuriating to me.

It’s what I think.

Anonymous asked: Monkeys understand that doing a favour for another monkey will deem them a favour in return at a later date. That is basically "do to others what you would have them do to you", a concept understood by animals who cannot read. Religion is all mythology, gives some nice stories that equates to the morals of lore like little red riding hood's not to talk to strangers. Past that, it is nothing more. Really do hope humanity sheds these archaic bindings.

I like your input, though I would say, “All religion is mythology.”

Thanks, anon!
