Please note the forecasted windchills. Perhaps God is punishing us for hating on GLBTQ folks in Wyoming. The bill to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation/gender identity died in the Wyo. State House today. Maybe God is making it this fucking cold to match the hearts in Cheyenne.
As an atheist, I say God has nothing to do with it because there is no God. As a Wyomingite, I say if there was a God, I figure we’d have pissed him off by decreeing some of his creations are less than others.
Either way, layer up kiddos, it’s gonna be cold here.

I just had a thought.

man-over-matter:

cruefest:

You know when you walk in a room and you just forget why you went in there? What if life was like a game of sims? And God just deletes the action you were about to do?

Is it weird that this was my #1 conspiracy theory (and one of my first) that started when I was 12? It still has a special place in the conspiracy-theories corner of my heart, right next to the one that prevents me from ever taking vitamins ever.

Jesus Christ, it all becomes clear. This also explains why I run in circles when my stove catches fire!

So, Yellow and Red don’t know each other, and I swear this appeared in conjunction like this on my Facebook newsfeed.
Apparently God’s been busy passing people’s classes for them this semester.  
This is the “God gets the credit and none of the blame” attitude that really drives me up a wall.  Take credit for yourselves, guys!  Own your mistakes and your successes!

I can see it now… God: “Fuck the poor, starving kids in Africa, I’ve got Chemistry and English to pass for my holy minions!” *spits on beefy cosmic paws*

Kentucky's National Defense Strategy: "Reliance on Almighty God" - Members of the Kentucky House of Representatives and Senate are demanding the state acknowledge "reliance upon Almighty God" in its Homeland Security department.

Nearly every member of the Kentucky House of Representatives and Senate has signed a court brief demanding that the state be permitted to acknowledge “reliance upon Almighty God” in its Homeland Security department.

The controversy started last year after Franklin Circuit Court ruled that provisions in two laws requiring the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security to acknowledge God were a violation of church-state separation.

The first law, passed in 2002, contains a “legislative finding” declaring that the “safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.”

The second law, passed in 2006, goes a good bit further. It requires the Homeland Security Office to publicize the state’s “dependence on Almighty God” in agency educational and training material and mandates that a permanent plaque acknowledging God be posted at the department’s Emergency Operations Center.

I’m pretty sure that if God existed, he or she would not give a shit about Kentucky. Furthermore, if Kentucky needs Homeland Security, I’m sure praying the threat away will totally work. Encroaching theocracy says what?

'The planet won't be destroyed by global warming because God promised Noah,' says politician bidding to chair U.S. energy committee

A Republican congressman hoping to chair the powerful House Energy Committee refers to the Bible and God on the issue of global warming.

Representative John Shimkus insists we shouldn’t concerned about the planet being destroyed because God promised Noah it wouldn’t happen again after the great flood.

Speaking before a House Energy Subcommittee on Energy and Environment hearing in March, 2009, Shimkus quoted Chapter 8, Verse 22 of the Book of Genesis.

He said: ‘As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will never cease.’

Yeah, but did God pinky swear? If not, we’re fucked. I can’t believe these people get elected.
