The Resurrection of minkiajetset on Deviant Art! (and other things...)
So I haven’t posted on my DA account in a while. I’ve been wrapped up in school, focusing more on the graphic design stuff, so I haven’t drawn anything in a bit. Well, I’ll change that soon enough. I’m also going to upload past school projects I’ve done, for this class I’m about to finish and my Life Drawing class; there were a few pieces that I think are worth uploading, so that’s the plan.
I also have to update my resume. I thought I did 3 years ago once I got the job I have now, but I guess not. My LinkedIn account needs to be fleshed out more. And I need a better profile picture now that I’m a naturalista!
Freethinking FoxHole Series: Things to Keep in Mind during Religious Debates/Discussions
Since coming to terms with the reality that I am quite skeptical when it comes to religious and spiritual matters, and in light of a recent discussion involving religion, I see that, like a favorite skeptic I’m subscribed to on YouTube, I will have to adopt certain criteria for future debates with theists, which are the following:
1. Do you know the definition of the word, “theory”, in the context of scientific theories? I was hit with the “it’s just a theory” argument when I stated that the Creation argument as told in the Bible has been debunked by science via the Theory of Evolution. Now…we all know that words have numerous meanings depending on the context for which they’re are being applied. If you act as if you’re ignorant of this? You’re being intellectually dishonest, and nothing you say will hold any merit with me.
2. Stop quoting scriptures from your holy book and handing it off as proof of your god’s existence. Scriptures from religious texts are only valid to people who subscribe to them. They are also written by men, who placed their own perspectives and biases influenced by faith, a belief in something not proven with evidence.
Also, stop quoting the good things and events written in your book, overlooking, and in some cases, outright denying to see the obvious bad things and outright fuckery that ARE written in it. KBYETHANKS.
If these things are heeded? Good stuff. It’s probably asking for too much, but I mean, a lady can ask, right?
