As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does:
It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself, honey. This is hardcore science

Suffering Children and the Christian Science Church
The unwillingness of many Christian Science parents to seek help from physicians for their critically ill children has led to many painful and unnecessary deaths and, increasingly, to legal actions that have become burdensome to the Church and its members

“Beloved in Thee I Am Well Pleased” is the epitaph on the gravestone of James Andrew Wantland. According to the Gospel of Saint Luke, God spoke these words to his son, Jesus, at Jesus’ baptism. Given that James Andrew Wantland–Andrew, he was called–was twelve years old when he died, the choice of epitaph is striking. It does not express the sentiments one usually associates with the untimely death of a child. It suggests satisfaction, rather than regret or loss or sorrow. On the grave of a mature person it would presumably pay tribute to a life of accomplishment and fulfillment; on that of a child it seems almost too much to bear. But Andrew Wantland was the child of Christian Scientists, and the children of Christian Scientists have much to bear.

thefoxninja17  asked:

As a Christian, how have you responded to the people who try to disprove and denounce your faith with science and evolution?

Calmly.

I don’t agree with the belief that science and faith cannot coexist. Yes, many of the greatest minds in history never practiced religion, however, just as many of the greatest minds did. These minds did not believe their faith contradicted what they studied from the world around them, and these individuals have greatly impacted the way we study the world. Max Planck? Issac Newton? Lord Kelvin? The very men we name units of measurement after? They believed in God. In fact, many of them became stronger believers the MORE science marched forwards.

“In the last few years astronomy has come together so that we’re now able to tell a coherent story of how the universe began. This story does not contradict God, but instead enlarges [the idea of] God.”

Joel Primack, co-developer of the cold dark matter theory

However, I also believe that denying science is just as narrow-minded and arrogant as denouncing religion as intellectually stagnant. I believe that is completely disrespectful towards those individuals who have dedicated their lives towards the noble goal of understanding the world around us. Yes, some scientists are arrogant and dishonest, but every group has some of those kinds of people so let’s not paint in broad strokes. Scientists put a lot of work into what they do; show them some appreciation.

My Recent Google Search of Ginger in the News section has come up this… Now I certainly didn’t know Ginger personally but reading about her and studying her life for the last 20+ years I feel like her Christian Science self would be a bit appalled at this… My limited research into Christian Science consistently shows that they absolutely do not believe in ghosts. I am 100% behind a Ginger Rogers Museum and I plan to go often, but to claim she is haunting the house makes me sad. If it is fabricated it’s in very bad taste and is disrespectful towards what she believed in to her very core. That also being said if it’s true I would LOVE to meet Ginger’s Spirit (I think that might be how I die… From an overwhelming fangirl heart attach as a result of meeting the Love of my life’s ghost.) Now I personally am no Christian Scientist and don’t believe in the paranormal (I think that when you let that stuff in your life your asking for trouble) So I’m gonna call BS on these claims anyway, But then again I am a skeptic through and through so I guess prove me wrong. 

(also side note these articles imply that Ginger grew up in the house in Missouri but she only lived there from the time she was born till 1915 when she went to live with her grandparents while her mother Lela went to take on Hollywood. I don’t call the first 4 years a persons life growing up exactly. Not when Ginger herself remembered very little of it and remembers quite a bit more of her time at her grandparents house, her younger years living in New York as well as the house her mother and she shared with John Rogers in Fort Worth.)
