Well, to be technical…
Agnosticism is the stance that ultimately the existence of a god or gods is unknowable.
Atheism is the lack of belief in a god.
So it is possible to be an agnostic atheist, as I am and as are most atheists.  I acknowledge that ultimately it is impossible to prove or disprove a god’s existence, but I personally see no reason to believe in one.
Likewise, it is possible to be an agnostic theist, which is belief in a god but acknowledging that ultimately your god’s existence can’t be proved.
Many people think that an atheist is someone who is certain that a god does not exist.  This would be a gnostic atheist, and in my experience people with this viewpoint are in the minority.
On the other hand, gnostic theists, that is, people who are certain that a god exists, are very common.
Here’s a handy-dandy chart with circles and stuff.

Bisexual apparently means to some people

  • not queer
  • the perpetual ‘just a phase’
  • available for anyone
  • available for constant harassment and abuse
  • incapable of monogamy (if they are going into a monogamous relationship, they WILL cheat)
  • really just waiting to be in a heterosexual relationship
  • really just waiting for you to invite them to have sex with your girlfriend b/c its ‘hot’ even if (especially if) they state that they are not interested
  • perpetually ‘on’, no variance in sex drive or desire
  • only worthwhile when visually appealing and desirable to straight men
  • only comprised of cis-women (there are no bisexual trans* people or men)

the best part is, these aren’t just beliefs held by straight people — TONS of gay people believe this too.

someone just left the dorm complex and she was wearing a shirt that said “I’m a thespian. my parents think it’s a stage.” and I swear I laughed for three minutes without stopping to breathe

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

I’d like to firstly say I’m not against gay people but they are adapted to glide over short distances better than us and they digest foliage at an alarming rate and their bones are hollow allowing them to glide across water when given enough momentum i mean when does it stop?

As a white Cis male I can only burrow. That’s my only function. To burrow. I can also fire off my talons like projectiles but that’s not considered socially acceptable in 2013.

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Hear more tales of nerdery in this week’s Pwn Up! (via dorkly)

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.
