when I'm small

blog / German

"Zwei werden sich nie einig sein, was ein Moment wirklich bedeutet. Was es heißt, wenn ich meine Hand auf deine lege. Was meine stolpernden Worte bedeuten und dein Lächeln, das auf Rückzug geht. Was das Foto bedeutet, das du von mir geschossen hast, in einem unbeobachteten Moment, das Foto, das du still auf den Tisch legst, bevor du gehst, eine Erinnerung an bessere, schweigsamere Tage.
Ich bin im Schreiben immer besser gewesen als im Reden. Manchmal denke ich, ich sollte stumm spielen, alles, was ich sagen will, zuerst auf Notizblöcke kritzeln und zehn Mal gegenlesen, alles Überflüssige kürzen und streichen, alles, was zu sehr nach Sehnsucht klingt, nach Brauchen, nach Einsamsein, alles, was zu sehr nach mir klingt. Alles, was mich zurück an den Rand deines Lebens rückt, irgendwo dorthin, wo die unliebsamen, sperrigen Möbel stehen, die man beim nächsten Umzug zurücklässt. Irgendwo kurz vor unbekannt, irgendwo, wo ich begreife, dass Reden ein Spiel ist, das ich nicht gewinnen kann."

You are a
hurricane of
a girl;

to breathe
every once

in a while,
do not drown
within your
own storm.

This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.

Amen to the comment

Oh my precious lambs:

Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:

"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)

Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.

But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting. 

In short:

People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.

"Stop teaching science, it offends me"
