    A quote from http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Fridge/Literature:

    Like everyone seems like to point out, it the Bible at first glance seems to contain a lot of contradictions or things that don't seem to add up that apologists exist just to tell their interpretations. However, I realized that the fact that there are many things hard to explain in the Bible does not make it invalid and wrong, rather it confirms that it truly happened. Think about it, if the whole thing was just baloney, wouldn't the early Church and the medieval Church would try to correct the contradictions that are hard to explain? But instead it just stays there. That means that the early Christians truly believed that the stories in the Bible truly happened to the extent that what could easily look as a contradiction just stays there. This realization is also one of the few things that convinced me that the Bible truly is the Word of God.

    First, my mind went "this is a joke". Then "or is it?". I asked my husband what he thought. He told "oh, I've seen that already multiple times. If you cover 'it's inconsistent, so it's true' in enough mumbo-jumbo, lots of people will believe it."
    Now I can't wrap my mind around it at all. So it's not a joke, and it's even fairly common? The only thing that makes sense of this is a Ti receiving a pink slip.

    I just don't get gender roles. It's asinine in this day and age and those people telling immature kids to "be a man" should really learn to use "GROW UP".

    I don't get how anyone could be such a prude and have a stick up their ass; no matter how big it is it's going to get annoying. LOOSEN UP ALREADY.

    I'm sad you don't understand!

    Actually I might agree, depending on the kind of rock we're talking about. I don't understand why people like most of the new stuff. The screaming, raging "metal" I don't get either.

    But classic rock? Forget the lyrics. The melodies, the riffs: it had never been done before and never been successfully emulated since.

    telling someone to "be a man" doesn't always imply gender roles. if I were to tell someone to "be a man", I would be telling them "stop acting like a child. take responsibility for your life and get a goddamn job" as it is now, I'm applying this to myself first being a jobless 20 year old who feels uncomfortably dependent

    personally rock seems like kind of a enneagram 6/4/9 thing to me and an Sp last, Fe or Se thing. most of the TJs I know are like "ugh, this is awful!" though they don't say it
