Jewel-encrusted skeletons of Roman Saints
In 1578 word spread of the discovery in Rome of a network of underground tombs containing the remains of thousands of early Christian martyrs. Many skeletons of these supposed saints were soon removed from their resting place and sent to Catholic churches in Europe to replace holy relics that were destroyed during the Protestant Reformation. Once in place the skeletons were then carefully reassembled and enshrined in costumes, wigs, jewels, crowns, gold lace, and armor as a physical reminder of the heavenly treasures that awaited in the afterlife.

Sometimes, you need some time and space, and the gods will know and understand this, and gently step back to give you the time and space that you need.
Sometimes, the gods know and understand this even before you do, and they will gently step back to let you know.

For real though Revelations straight up says that new scrolls will be revealed in the end times and yet almost (?) no one ever claims to be one of the prophets writing the new books of the Bible that are supposed to update us on what’s been going on Heaven-wise the past 2000 years. Instead people are always fake discovering the Book of Raziel like you are never going to find the Book of Raziel 💜
I just think it’s kinda weird that there’s a million Jesus 2 impersonators out there but no one ever claims to be the next chosen scribe of God :/

One of the reasons believers get pissy at non-believers is that while the gods are careful to tiptoe around the sensibilities, preferences and humble narcissism of their master, the non-believer is not subject to such an obligation.

i keep seeing this meme in reaction to really shitty news
and so far i’ve been unsuccessful at finding the source image
at first i thought it was an edited screenshot from the 1981 anime Superbook or its 1982 follow-up series The Flying House because I remembered Jesus having similar eyes in them, but nope, turns out I misremembered. Turns out I was mixing up the Superbook anime and the pretty much in-name-only 2011 American “re-imagining” because Jesus looks like this in the former:
and this in the latter:

Is this legit or is she just trying to justify hindus?
Yea it is true
Hinduism is not a homphobic religion. The people made it homphobic. They try to use religion as a shield to protect themselves which is something they shouldn't be doing.
In some holy books it is clearly written that is natural to be gay, lesbian, bi, pan, non binary etc etc
Above is the screenshot from Wikipedia
Vishnu and Shiva are genderfluid, there is lgbtq representation everywhere if you really see it. Same sex relationship and gender variance have been portrayed in hinduism since the vedic times
Hindu philosophy has the concept of a third sex or third gender (tritiya-prakriti – literally, "third nature"). Hinduism was never exclusively known to be homphobic! We (we as in the society) made it up.
the various Hindu deities connected with gender diversity such as:
▪︎ Ardhanarisvara the androgynous form of Shiva and his consort Parvati
▪︎ Aravan a hero whom the god Krishna married after becoming a woman
▪︎Harihara an incarnation of Shiva and Vishnu combined
▪︎Bahuchara Mata a goddess connected with transsexuality and eunuchism
▪︎ Gadadhara an incarnation of Radha in male form
▪︎ Chandi-Chamunda twin warrior goddesses
▪︎Bhagavati-devi a Hindu goddess associated with cross-dressing
▪︎ Gangamma a goddess connected with cross-dressing and disguises and the goddess Yellamma.
So to answer your question nonnie yes this true and I think she did a great a job and I personally love that post

In the Second Scroll of Wen the Eternally Surprised, a story is written concerning one day when the apprentice Clodpool, in a rebellious mood, approached Wen and spake thusly:
"Master, what is the difference between a humanistic, monastic system of belief in which wisdom is sought by means of an apparently nonsensical system of questions and answers, and a lot of mystic gibberish made up on the spur of the moment?"
Wen considered this for some time, and at last said: "A fish!"
And Clodpool went away, satisfied.

People joke about how silly the idea of being an atheist in a Dungeons & Dragons style fantasy setting is, but if you think about it, empirical proof of a supernatural being’s existence doesn’t tell you anything in particular in a setting like that, does it?
There are lots of creatures in a D&D style fantasy setting that could credibly pull off impersonating a god in a way that your average human would have no reasonable way of fact-checking – and I’m not just talking about supernatural con artists, though there is that.
D&D proposes a milieu in which there’s a whole ecosystem of things that magically pretend to be other things.
Imagine being a D&D cleric and discovering one day that the thing you’ve been worshipping and that grants you your magical powers is actually just a really big mimic, is what I mean to say.
