The Three Painters :A parable for athiests

A woman gave birth to a set of triplets, two boys and a girl. The three of them all grew up to be amazing still life painters and all three of them were born with a degenerative eye disease. They knew that some day they would go blind so they tried to paint as much as possible before the world went black.

They also knew that nothing satisfied them quite as much as seeing the world and presenting it in art form. To them still life was the greatest thing in the world.

One sunny…

My Letter to My Ethics Professor

Dear Dr. Sadler,

                First I would like to say that I love your teaching style, you are funny and approachable and you are one of my favorite professors. You are also a good man, I believe this because I have seen you react to stories of your wife and children and unless you are a fantastic actor I think you understand love, tremendous, wonderful and sometimes oh-so-painful love.

Me: Actually he…

Just some frustrations

I am a sophomore in college and taking summer courses to save money. I'm taking an ethics class and I swear today I wanted to flip my lid.

 

If I hear ONE more college educated person spout out "evolution is just a theory," I am going to fucking scream.

It's like I am accidentally poking bears.

I swear, I never see these stupid arguments coming, it's been almost a month since I last argued with my BFF about my atheism.

 

This one started when I said I thought that UAV's were unethical warfare. (If there is no life risked it isn't warfare, it's just murdering.)

Now I know that it is just my opinion, I'm anti-war in general but I always forget that Christians are tricky when it comes to who is acceptable to kill.

 

Anywho, I had just gotten the…
