I Am a Pagan and I Stand for Science

Currently, I’m a student in college studying for a Biology degree. However, my story doesn’t end simply there.  I’m also a polytheistic pagan.  Yeah, you read that right, I’m a STEM student who believes in a multitude of Gods and no I don’t find either conflicting with each other.  Science is the study of the natural world and the physical laws that go along with it.  Gods on the other hand are supernatural and are outside the realm of what science can perceive.  So, science can not prove nor disprove the existence of the Gods, it’s simply based on the premise of faith and anecdotal evidence that, to me at least, the Gods exist.  I do not speak for anyone else involved in the science field nor for any other pagans out there.  This is solely my beliefs.

Now, lets get to what I’m really writing about.  As many people know there’s going to be a country wide March for Science this Saturday.  This is very very very very VERY important since we have an anti-science government in power in the US of A.  They deny climate change specifically, which has been proven conclusively with over a thousand peer reviewed paper on the subject.  The science behind climate change is literally being tossed out the window by the Trump Administration and being replaced with anti-science nonsense that is wholly backed by companies mainly in the fossil industries.  Really, that shouldn’t be too surprising in the least.  What else do you expect from a businessman?  I believe it’s important that everyone get out, everyone who gives a damn about our planet whether you are pagan, atheist, agnostic or even Christian (you guys actually have some verses in the Bible that states pollution is shunned b your Gods), should be out there marching with scientists.  There is an app for Android devices called March for Science that will help find you the nearest march.  It’s for Free so there should be no reason not to download this app.

Science is the only forward for our species.  The quest for knowledge, especially among pagans, is paramount.  Odin sacrificed Himself for knowledge of the Runes and ultimately his eye for wisdom.  Perhaps we all should be like Odin except without the dramatics of self sacrifice of body parts, but rather sacrificing our time in our lives to devote to obtaining new knowledge no matter how daunting it may seem.  In the the end, the knowledge gained through hard work and research is far more fulfilling.

So I hope that the march will be successful in forcing the Trump Administration to avert its ridiculous war on science and that soon scientists will be running for public office to exact change from within.  Hel, maybe once I get my degree, do some time in a lab, I’ll run for public office one day.  We’ll see.

Brightest Blessings to all out there and have a great Yggdrasil Day (Earth Day)!!

Election 2016 aka The Circus Freakshow

What a joke this election turned into.  It became a clash of oligarchical titans spewing venom into each others faces as opposed telling us why we should vote for them.  Instead, it has been an admittance by each person that they are horrible people, but a vote in their favor would be better than a vote for the bigger of two evils.  I personally don’t support either one of these people.  My vote tomorrow will go to Jill Stein of the Green Party.  I’d rather rather vote with my conscience rather than for “the lesser of two evils” which, in my humble opinion, are the same type of evil we strive daily to stay away from.

Trump (Herr Drumpf)

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton at Trumps Wedding in 2005

What’s wrong with this picture?  Why it’s Trump and the Clintons together at Trumps wedding in 2005.  For people so diametrically opposed to each other the Clintons sure had no problems hamming it up with Trump.  If we can condemn Donald Rumsfelds picture with Saddam Hussein, then we can apply the same logic here.  These two are playing a game with the American people and no matter who wins, this country is in trouble.

Sure, you say, that picture proves nothing other than that wealthy hang out with each other a lot.  However, on May of 2015, Bill Clinton phoned Donald Trump and stated this:

 

Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his own views of the political landscape.

Moreover, Trump has donated plenty of times to the Clintons and their foundation.  If that shit don’t reek, well you’re aren’t smelling hard enough.

More evidence that Trump is nothing more than a shill to pave the way for Hillary is that Liberal billionaire, George Soros, has helped Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper

Once again, someone so diametrically opposed to Trump has in some way been involved with Trump, but the powers that be want you forget about all of that.  The so-called Conservatives who support Trump are those who will also responsible for putting Hillary into power.

Hillary Clinton

I seriously don’t need to go into the specifics as to why Hillary is unfit for Presidency.  Benghazi, email mishandling, the sabotaging of Bernie Sanders campaign, the scandals with the Clinton Foundation (you know that one I just told you Donald Trump donated to) and many other probable scandals.

And where does this end up?  Well this picture sums up it up perfectly.  At what point in our nations history do we stop voting for “the lesser evil” and actually become brave enough to vote for a third party candidate.  I’m tired of the same two parties with the same solutions for everything being elected, so for the first time since I’ve been a voter I’m voting straight third party and if there happens to be no third party candidate then I’m writing in a name, namely Ragnar Lodbrock.  A viking can do better in politics than these two false hopes running currently.  They have nothing to offer the American people, but as I always say, when the shit hits the fan in this country and one of these useless piles of garbage runs this country into the ground, you get what you voted for.  You gave in to the shit slinging and even participated in it by puffing your chest out and saying you know better.  Well, no one knows a damn thing.  If you did, you’d vote third party.

Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka 2016 for President!
