i think it's bold for adam to be so upfront about his faith but i have to say i find it almost a little pushy to include that so openly on his record. im not offended by it at all but he could lose quite a few fans for pushing religion too hard. dont you think?

youretheskythatifellthrough:

I can completely see that from your point of view too. But look at how he started out, too, a lot of his songs from earlier days were about his religion - Galaxies, Meteor Shower, The Christmas Song, The Technicolor Phase, I think for a while he was told to possibly repress it because he may lose people (maybe for TMS?) but we can see it as him branching out once again and not being afraid to put himself out there. He’s been interviewed by countless Christian magazines, and even ATBAB was named after a hymn, so, I think people know what they’re getting into when it comes down to it and his music. I don’t see it as a pressure sort of thing, like if I attended church with a friend or something I would only see it as an admiration of another person’s faith or thoughts and beliefs. That’s how I listen to those songs, with more admiration instead of a feeling like pressure or being forced to convert or anything like that. It means a lot to him. I don’t think he means to be pushy or forward, I think he’s just proud of who he is and what he believes in. Just like you, I hope. :)

As an atheist, I can honestly say that I don’t find Adam at all pushy. His songs aren’t ever about trying to convert others, judging others, or even caring at all about what others believe. At most, I’d say you’d find this in some of his older blog posts, and possibly implied from some of the Bible passages he posts (although I don’t find that from either of those, but some might), but he basically talks about his own experiences.

Tbh, I don’t see it as any different from talking about a relationship or anything; it’s just something that’s a part of his life that he feels he needs a creative outlet for. I also don’t think it’s particularly important if he’s “losing fans” because of his faith, because I really think art is about making something for yourself.

Adam doesn’t talk about others’ relationship with any deity, he talks about his own, and honestly, good on him for it.

as a young child i lacked the comprehension for an episode of veggie tales so for three years of my life my vision of god was this. god appeared to me in the form of frankencelery.


Who needs the Flying Spaghetti Monster when you have the talking Frankencelery?

pluto is not a planet again

there was only a debate, and afterwards the audience voted that pluto should be reinstated. it was not official. [that link goes to the time article btw]

also, if pluto was declared a planet again, NASA would not be doing it, because NASA is an american government agency and we do not actually own space. the international astronomical union (IAU) is the body that demoted pluto before, and it’s the one that would reinstate it.

WHY ARE NONE OF YOU FUCKERS FLIPPING SHIT?!?

NASA HAS DECLARED PLUTO A PLANET AGAIN

IT HAS…

People always complain about how at 18 we’re suddenly expected to make all these important life decisions, but let’s be real here, whether you’re 18 or 45, the decision is equally difficult and intimidating. We all have to grow up some time…

Always remember

YEAH BUT CALIGULA WAS FUCKIN INSANE
And not in a good way. He was literally insane, and he was an absolute tyrant. He’s my favourite Roman emperor, just because he’s so interesting
His father was a military hero, and he spent the first few years of his life on an army camp, where he paraded around wearing this mini-military uniform his mother made (which is where he got his name- “Caligula” meaning “little boot”). The soldiers basically worshipped him.
As a teenager, he was called before Tiberius (who was a complete tyrant in his own right, and supposedly killed members of Caligula’s family) on the island of Capri, where he was forcibly adopted and as a result of how well he was treated he supposedly developed Stockholm Syndrome (though this is subject to debate). He held an undying hatred for Tiberius but was forced to show respect, so took out his anger on others and enjoyed watching executions and torture, and frequently indulged in orgies
TIBERIUS THOUGHT HE WAS MAD. TIBERIUS.
He gains absolute power of the Roman Empire at the 24- spent the last 5 years watching Tiberius murder, rape, and torture innocents for his own pleasure. So it’s fair to say he’s pretty messed up. He starts off by obliterating unpopular tax and literally giving away money- thus winning the adoration of the citizens. Then, seemingly overnight, he becomes a vicious, bloodthirsty psychopath.
Early in his reign, he fell ill and spent a considerably period of time on the verge of death. Following most of his recovery, he still suffered major headaches and sometimes wandered round his palace in the dead of night, and started cross-dressing
During his illness, one man offered his life in exchange for Caligula’s recovery. When he recovered, Caligula sought out this man and had him sacrificed.
He called banquets, raped the female guests, then brought them back to the table to discuss the rape with the other guests
HE DECLARED WAR ON THE GODS. Hence why he had the army fight Poseidon.
He would make parents watch the executions of their children
He held dinner parties for highly-regarded Roman citizens, during which he would order the executions of criminals between courses and- while his guests were dining- he would rape their wives in the room next door
He appointed a horse as a consul. I’ll say that again. HE NAMED A HORSE A CONSUL. He had said horse attended to by 18 servants and fed it oats mixed with gold flakes
He names himself a living God
He his reign lasted four years, before he was stabbed to death. He did all that in four years.
I’M SORRY I JUST REALLY LOVE ROMAN HISTORY OK

Also when he would throw house parties he would hide wild animal like lions in random rooms and made people tour his house by themselves and they would be eaten if they opened the wrong door
(just so you know I did a huge project about him in history)
