I have some advice for you women out there who want to date Rob Kardashian -- don't.

If you've missed the latest kerfuffle, Kardashian and former lover Blac Chyna (born Angela White) are now at odds, with Kardashian posting intimate details of his and Chyna's relationship. In now-deleted Instagram posts, and currently live Twitter posts, Kardashian has accused Chyna of abusing drugs and alcohol in the same house as their daughter, Dream. Kardashian also posted an image on Instagram of an alleged text conversation between him and one of Chyna's current sexual partners, who looks to be asking him for money. There are allegations that Kardashian posted nude pictures of Chyna's body to his Instagram feed and criticized her body before it was shut down by Instagram moderators. I have not seen the images, and for the sake of my own sanity, will not be looking for them; however here is a news article detailing the fiasco. Kardashian's alleged actions would fall under the category of revenge porn.

Chyna's ability to raise her daughter (and son, King Cairo, by rapper Tyga) is not the point here. The point here is that Kardashian, who is no stranger to accusations of domestic abuse from Chyna, felt the need to post intimate pictures that she allegedly sent him as a way to get back at his ex-fiancee. That's just dead wrong, no matter how you spin it. It's also dead wrong to air your dirty laundry on social media, but Kardashian seems to do this every time he and Chyna are going through some sort of struggle.

I saw a tweet earlier pertaining to this situation that really turned my stomach - basically saying that because Chyna is a former stripper, Kardashian posting pictures of her naked body is old news. Well, let me break this down for the 3.1K idiots who retweeted that. If a woman chooses to post her naked body online ON HER OWN, that is HER CHOICE. It is her doing, on her own dime, her own conscience, her own risk. She is making that choice and exercising body autonomy. While I may not agree with that woman's decision, it is her choice. It is not her choice to have a former lover -- or any person for that matter, male or female -- post pictures of her naked body without her consent. I don't care if you're a nun or a nudist. Consent is everything in all aspects of life. Whether Chyna liked the photos he posted, whether she reposts them, whether she directs her followers to them - it doesn't eliminate the fact that her consent was not solicited when those photos were posted. It's dead wrong. Her past career has nothing to do with this situation.

I implore Kardashian and Chyna to think of baby Dream before they continue this public war on social media. I implore Chyna to get some help if she is really in the throes of addiction, and there are so many resources for her to reach out to in regards to the domestic violence accusations. As for Kardashian, dude quit being a jackass and say you're sorry. Apologize to the woman you talked up like crazy a year ago. I implore you to knock it off with this childish behavior, stop going to social media for everything, and act like the 30-year-old MAN that you are. Raise your children, folks.

From A Believer

For those living in the world, but not of it.
11

As Christians, Jesus calls us to “not conform to the pattern of this world” (Romans 12:2) or as most Christians will commonly coin it, “to be in the world but no of the world”. And many of us strive to live by this notion. But some Christians take this statement to impart judgment on those around us. We, as a church, and the body of Christ, have resorted to condemnation of others, and harsh judgment and accusation of those who may not be like us. Even I am guilty of looking at someone who isn’t following Christ’s way, and having an opinion about it. But Jesus calls us to be like him. As it is written in Genesis 1:26, when God created the Earth, He said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” where image and likeness mean that we are to have a demeanor and compassion like our God does. Then why is it that we are so easy to point a finger at those who aren’t following the commandments of the Lord? What’s ironic, is that in our haste to judge, we too, are sinning against God. Recently in my walk with the Lord, I discovered some things that changed my outlook on my faith, so I encourage you to look at my discovery, and hopefully gain the same insight I did.

We are quick to judge non-believers.

We are called to be not of this world, but that does not grant us the permission to dismiss those of the world. So often I have been told of people who completely disowned ‘non-believing friends’. That isn’t what Christ called us to do. He calls us to walk with those who don’t believe, in an effort that every eye will see, and every heart will know HIS name. But we are so consumed with pointing out the fact they live in sin, that we can’t even be bothered to love like Jesus does, and to share the gospel with them. One of my favorite passages in the Bible is John 8:3-11. It says, “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared.” No one in this passage, not even Jesus himself, condemns the woman. Because as Jesus says, we are ALL full of sin. We have all done wrong. But we, as Christians, have the power to pray and ask for forgiveness. So it is our job, our responsibility to not only abstain from judgment, but to pray for, and share Christ’s love and forgiveness with those who may not know it. 

As we judge non-believers, we even more harshly judge Christians.

We have all been guilty of gossip within the church, or school, when a Christian makes a mistake. We are quick to look down upon those who sin, once, or habitually. But is that Christ-like? Does that honor God? It doesn’t. Romans 3:23 states, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Every single one of us has committed sin. But that choice, that decision is between no one else but you and God. And once you ask Him for forgiveness, because His Son died on the cross for us, we are immediately forgiven, and washed clean. Matthew 7:3 says, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” As Christians, we must be wary to not judge others, as we too have sinned, and the only way to redemption is through Christ himself. 

Take all of this as a grain of salt. I know this isn’t perfect advice, but I’m hopeful it shed some light onto your walk with the Lord, as it did for me. If anything, take the time, instead of judging another, to share Christ’s love with them, as He calls us to do. And maybe they will feel convicted to lift their life to Him. What a blessing it is that Jesus truly forgives. 

Always,

Evidence, The Most Important Foundation

A real world example of why data rather than emotion should be used in an argument
274

As I was thinking of relevant topics to write about, I figured this is one of the most controversial as it is so necessary, yet it is not used to the degree we need to. Of course, one could claim that as I am someone studying the sciences; I have a bias and what I say in this article should be taken with a grain of sand. In an effort to show that evidence really is an unbiased issue, I will provide real life examples.

Within the last year and a half or so, during Trump’s presidency, Kellyanne Conway referenced “Alternative Facts” while discussing a topic of importance. This quickly became a fast spreading joke as people recognized the foolishness that is no two opposing statements can really be true in light of facts. This was laughed off, but it really shows the state of where we are as a society. Regardless of the evidence that provides truth, people still hold on to their beliefs. They even cite examples of exceptions as a reason to disprove an entire argument. Let me provide a crystal clear example of why that is not an acceptable retort. Gravity is something we experience all the time. It is what keeps us on the ground and ensures that we will not float into space where we would simultaneously freeze and burn at the same time. However, one of the most well known exceptions to the rule is helium. Helium is less dense than air and because of that, it floats to the top of the substance that is more dense - air. Now, because the balloon filled helium does not mean that the entire law of gravity is wrong. It simply means that other scientific forces create that exception to the law. This same logic, for example, applies to the immigrant/DACA/Dreamer issue today. Now, I am not going to go into explicit detail, but I will provide references below. Broadly speaking, those part of the Republican party and the President believe that immigrants simply come into the country to kill, steal, and “mooch” off of our welfare system. Data shows the opposite of those claims, however. Those in the DACA program, for example, actually contribute quite a bit to the economy. Greater than 90% in the program actually have jobs and there are immigrants that have become military members to fight for the country they seek refuge in. Now I am sure there are exceptions to those rules such as Mexicans who are part of the drug cartel or even people who come from countries of muslim origin who commit terrorist attacks. The reality is much different in that there have been significantly more domestic terror attacks by whites in this country than people of color. A person is actually more likely to be killed by a falling vending machine, shark, or even falling down stairs than being killed in a foreign terror attack. This relates back to the Law of Gravity example because even though there are exceptions to the reasons to the (primarily democrat) effort to keep immigrants safe in the country, that is not a viable reason to enact such radical policies to keep them out. Now of course, the issue of illegal immigrants is certainly prominent but arguably that is more a problem with the system itself and many of those people have been proving immigration policies futile. I am not saying I think illegal immigration is justified, but I think the data needs to be looked at and incorporated into any future improved policies.

The real point of this article is to tell people of this country that before you decide to get into a debate over a controversial topic, think about the facts first before letting your emotions guide your argument. Evidence has done wonders for the field of science ( science, engineering, mathematics, astronomy, etc.) and has gotten us where we are today. Try using it in your everyday life instead of reacting with emotion to something. Who knows, you may just change your position on an issue.
