My religious spirituality is my crutch, and I still choose to rely on my crutch thank you.And you do…

My religious spirituality is my crutch, and I still choose to rely on my crutch thank you.

And you do realize what happens when you kick the crutch that a person relies on, don’t you? A quick clue: the limp DOES NOT magically become fully healed when you kick down their crutch.

Just a game of analogies that maybe some of you might want to poke with.

Or not.

Whatev.

So forgive me when I say that I am of the opinion that most all militant antitheists that I have personally come across throughout my life…

…are assholes.

The amygdala handles both pain response, and emotional reaction to cognitively dissonant information.

Think about that.

I’m feeling a bit bitey this evening. Forgive me that I don’t feel like conforming to the skeptical material logical scientific norm of the intellectual Internet community at this time.

The anti-socials have ruined social media. (And they insist on keeping it ruined.) (Militantly.)

I remember a lesson I got at one of my former offices, that publishing a piece of photojournalism without a caption is professionally irresponsible. Why is it irresponsible? Because a photograph without a caption leaves its context open to misinterpretation. The photograph could potentially misinform or, even worse, lie. But the thing is, the trend in Instagram lately has been to post pictures with little to no captions. Or even to post pictures whose purpose is nothing more than to hold a caption text that’s more of a blog post, and the picture sometimes doesn’t even have anything to do with the caption, or the picture is a quote-unquote “throwaway” picture. | One could perhaps argue that Instagram *is not* photojournalism, or at least not limited to just photojournalism. That would be a valid point of course. But still though Instagram does occasionally get used by and organizations for photojournalism, such as for example by Reuters and NatGeo. Routers and NatGeo always accompany their Instagram photos with captions, excellent captions even more often than not.
