I check my global dashboard, and use the ‘latest posts’ section down the bottom to find recent and interesting things to comment on.
But I clicked one post (about lethal injections as execution) and it was from 2006!!!
And I was frustrated, because it was a topic I was interested in, but I didn’t want to comment on a post so old.
It also made me concerned I had commented on other old posts without realising it.
And it often seems to show a lot of blog posts from the same people – at first I think they’re fake copy-paste posts from spammers, but they seem to be fairly legitimate, but how could they have all been posted so recently? maybe they’re all old posts!
Does ‘latest’ actually mean LATE-est to WordPress? as in they were made ages ago?
Anyway, on a very different topic that popped into my head for little reason.
On my phones ‘notes’ I have some thoughts for my blog that I haven’t posted, or have posted later but forgotten to use my notes as a reference O.o; lol
I wrote this after my Christian friend said something about the ‘unimportant’ or ‘less important’ parts of The Bible.
And one of them is ‘I could never be religious’ (thinking of Christianity in particular)
“I just could not be Christian.
I think a Christian should believe every word in The Bible – not what they chose to be important or unimportant, hello, it’s the fucking WORD OF GOD, I would think it’s all important!
But a lot of things it says in The Bible, I could not believe, because I think they’re wrong.
Truly, I believe, that The Bible is written by men (albeit, Saints or whatever, but MEN) and whether or not they had guidance from God or not, they would’ve put their own bias or opinion into what they wrote, or interpreted God’s word incorrectly, due to their own bias.
So, I cannot believe everything in The Bible, I would have to pick and choose, like all of the others do, to be happy with it.
But I could not be happy because I could not pick and choose! Who am I to pick and choose!?
If I was Christian, it would be fake, it would be a lie.
And it wouldn’t make me happy at all.”
I think I still believe all that now.
Keep in mind that was really written for me, not for other people.
A main point I dislike about religion, is that people of OTHER religions are going to Hell – they believe just as much and as hard as any one else, and they love their God, and live just and respectful lives… they believe that they have put their faith in the right thing… but they’re going to Hell? for having faith?
And also, that if I became a Christian, it would mean thinking that my mother and most of my family would be going to Hell, even though they are good, beautiful, amazing people… mostly :p
And, I watch a show called The Tudors, about Henry The 8th, and there was a lot of religious persecution going on around then.
People got burnt because, even though they believed in the same God as the people punishing them, they didn’t believe that consecrated bread became the flesh of God.
I’m with them, really – it’s symbolism.
And, as one ‘heretic’ woman (Anne Askew?) said, “I have read that God made man, but no where have I read that man can make God.”
If it was real, Jesus would be sitting in Heaven, pale, with chunks taken out of his arm, going “yeah, thanks a lot”.
And, if you are what you eat, then does that mean that Catholics are Jesus!? O.O;
Also, I like to imagine a women going to communion, being offered the wafer, and going “I’m on a diet”.
