infallibles

mugmuseum asked:

You talk a lot about not believing in the idea of role models and I guess it's because I'm so accustomed to having role models but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that type of thinking. Could you explain it in some detail?

it would probably be more specific and nuanced and accurate to say i am “suspicious of the notion of role models”

i think the idea of role models encourages us to think of people in absolutes. i think it sets us up to have false and unfair expectations of a person. i think it sets us up to be disappointed – either in someone we conceived of in our minds as infallible, or in ourselves for not being able to live up to some hopelessly specific ideal. i think it subtly encourages us to consider our selves in someone else’s image and on someone else’s terms, which i find extremely dangerous – isn’t that the kind of thinking we should be fighting against?

there’s personal stuff here. i didn’t have role models growing up. i didn’t have anyone i thought was worth emulating. what i had were pieces of different people’s careers and personhoods and ideas that i found exciting and invigorating. what i had were people like jeremy denk and stephen hough who made me feel like there was space for a classical musician to articulate themselves as much through intellection as through “simply” playing their instrument. what i had were asian-americans like vijay iyer who made me feel like there was the possibility of my art engaging with its social space. what i had were theorists like muñoz who conceived of the relationship between performance and queerness as a dance of endless possibility

this, in my view, is far more interesting than simply having “role models.” all of these things, these “possibility models,” to use laverne cox’s term, encouraged me to synthesize and analyze and clump together anew. and that is a thrillingly endless process

not to mention also that i think the notion of role models is dehumanizing and reduces people to a set of signifiers, denying them any sort of agency and elasticity and, y'know, actual life

Hey I've been looking through your posts about self diagnosis and I agree with a lot of the points that you've made about medical professionals not being infallible the value of your personal insight into your individual mental state and things of that sort but I feel like anti self diagnosers have a valid point that you haven't really addressed which is that misdiagnosing yourself can really fuck with your mental health not to say that you can't be misdiagnosed by a professional too pt1

i feel like u & alot of other people are under the impression that self diagnosis means googling your symptoms, going with the first illness u see listed and then having unshakable confidence that you do have that illness

i believe thats cyberchondria??? not self diagnosis

usually self diagnosers have been battling with their symptoms for awhile & do tons of research on their suspected illness(es) and talk to people with that illness(es)

its not like a one/two step process

anonymous asked:

so I did what you suggested and I also looked on the Internet for help and I did some calculations and I got about 6,000 years for the age of the earth... surely that can't be right though!?? I mean the bible must be missing something.

You’ve come to the same conclusion as most bible scholars and if as Christians we believe the bible to be infallible then that’s what you get. Though (and this is just something to think over and consider) in Genesis it says the earth was without form so one could argue that the earth was there with God and then He shaped it and all so it could be the 6000 plus some maybe. Not saying that’s true or fact just there it is it may play into it.

PSA Just because you play a protagonist and I play an antagonist doesn’t mean your character is always infallibly justified by sole virtue of being the “good guy”.  It also doesn’t necessarily mean my character is stupid evil and deserves to be harassed and/or physically/emotionally hurt: especially when they haven’t done anything wrong yet.

Why you should all go see Mad Max Fury Road

I saw it last night. It’s amazing. Here’s some of the things I liked best:

1) Furiosa (Charlize Theron) is amazingly calm and badass. You want a strong female lead? She may not be on the promotional posters, but this is her movie for sure.

2) Furiosa is a more skilled driver, shooter, and leader than Max (and in hand-to-hand combat they are pretty well matched). Oh and she does all these things better with only one arm.

3) Max RECOGNISES that she is more skilled and defers to her in almost all situations, both in and out of combat.

4) Furiosa and Max are not completely infallible invincible superheroes. They fuck up. They suffer. They struggle. You care.

5) The action doesn’t let up.

6) A believable yet surreal world

7) Kickass soundtrack

8) So. 

Many. 

Explosions.

9) MRA are upset and feel that watching a movie which contains this scene:

will somehow make them less manly. 

Go figure. Let’s help make it a blockbuster.

so much of fury road’s awesomeness hinges on how uncool max is. like. in terms of typical coolness factor re: action heroes

he spends so much of the movie visibly scared and confused and he’s not a perfect infallible fighter 

it makes moments that more closely resemble Super Cool Action Hero Stuff that much more fun. like the scene where he goes off in the dark to kill the bullet farmer and comes back through the mist w/ a bunch of supplies and blood on his head was fantastic and funny and just overall carried more weight because that kind of thing wasn’t shoehorned into every other scene

I hate the word cis, it’s meaningless and futile to assume that women have ever been comfortable in the hierarchy of gender forced upon them since birth. Cis implies that I am comfortable with the hyper feminine, hyper sexual, readily available, submissive ideals that society begs me to be. The cis / trans dichotomy is worthless and to be frank, assimilationist, because it enforces the concept that a binary exists, the “man” and “woman” as infallible concepts when in reality, gender operates to be “men” and “subhuman.”

[The Imams are the corner stone on earth]

1) : It is narrated from Al-Mufaddal  that Abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) who has said the following. “Whatever Imam Ali (a.s.) has brought I follow them entirely and whatever he has forbidden I desist from them altogether. Whatever virtue that were found in the Holy Prophet (s.a.) were found in Imam Ali (a.s.) also. The Holy Prophet was more virtuous than all of the creatures of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High. Those turning away from any item of his (Imam Ali) guidance would be like one turning away from the guidance of Allah and His Prophet. Rejecting him in small or a great one matters would like considering things like Allah (shirk). Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) was the gate to Allah through which only, people could go closer to Him. Imam Ali (a.s.) was the path that if one would ignore it he would have been destroyed. This is also true of all the Imams of guidance one after the other. Allah has made them as the cornerstones of the earth so that people on it would not be destroyed. They possess the doubtless Divine authority over the inhabitants of earth and those below the earth.

Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) would very often say, "I am the supervisor for Allah to see who should go to Paradise and who should go to Hell. I am the greatest criterion, the possessor of the staff and the (marking) seal Miysam All the angels and the spirit have acknowledged the existence in me of all the matters that they had acknowledge in Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). I am held responsible for all such matters that Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) was held responsible. Such responsibilities are the duties to Allah, the Lord. The Holy Prophet will be called upon and his call will be accepted. I will be called up on and my call will be accepted. The Holy Prophet will be made to speak and I will be made to speak and I will speak just the way he would speak. I have been given certain distinctions which are given to no one before me. I was taught all about the deaths, the sufferings, the genealogy of people and clear speech. I have not missed any of the knowledge that have passed me by and nothing of the future is unseen or unknown to me. I give good news by the permission of Allah and do my duty towards Allah. All of these is from Allah Who has made it possible for me through His knowledge.”

[Al-Kafi, H 501, Ch. 14, h 1]

2) : It is narrated from Sa‘id’ al-A‘raj has said that he and Sulayman ibn Khalid once went to Abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) and al-A‘raj began the conversation as follows. “Whatever Imam Ali (a.s.) has brought is followed entirely and whatever he has forbidden is desisted from altogether. Whatever virtue that were found in the Holy Prophet (s.a.) were found in Imam Ali (a.s.) also. The Holy Prophet was more virtuous than all of the creatures of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High. Those who would find faults any item of his (Imam Ali) guidance would be like one finding faults in the guidance of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High and His Prophet. Rejecting him in small or a great matters would be like considering things similar to Allah (shirk). Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) was the gate to Allah through which only, people can get closer to Him. Imam Ali (a.s.) was the path that if one would ignore it he would have been destroyed. This is also true of all the Imams of guidance one after the other. Allah has made them as the cornerstones of the earth so that people on it would not be destroyed. They possess the doubtless Divine authority over the inhabitants of earth and those below the earth.

Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) has said, "I am the supervisor for Allah to see who should go to Paradise and who should go to Hell. I am the greatest criterion, the possessor of the staff and the (marking) seal Miysam All the angels and the spirit have acknowledged the existence in me of all the matters that they had acknowledge in Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w). I am held responsible for all such matters that Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) was held responsible. Such responsibilities are the duties to Allah, the Lord. The Holy Prophet will be called upon and his call will be accepted. I will be called up on and I my call will be accepted.

3) : It is narrated from Abu al-Samit al-Hulwani from Abu Ja‘far (a.s.) about the virtue of Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) the following Hadith. “Whatever Imam Ali (a.s.) has brought I follow them entirely and whatever he has forbidden I desist from them altogether. All that is true of the obedience to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w) is true of the obedience to Imam Ali (a.s.) after the Holy Prophet (s.a.) but virtue belongs to Prophet Muhammad (s.a.). Those who would try to be ahead of Imam Ali (a.s.) would be considered as trying to be ahead of Prophet (s.a.w.w). Those who would to show themselves as more virtuous than Imam Ali (a.s.) would be considered as trying to show themselves as more virtuous than the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w). Whoever would reject any of the small or great items of the guidance of Imam Ali (a.s.) he would be like considering things as similar (shirk) to Allah. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w) is the gate through which people can go to Allah. He is the path that if chosen would lead to Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High. The same was true of Imam Ali (a.s.) after the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w). All such matters were true of the Imams (a.s.) one after the other. Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has made them the cornerstone of the earth so that its inhabitants would not be destroyed. They were the pillars of Islam and the connection in the path of guidance. No guide can be a guide without their guidance and one would go astray unless he would ignore the rights of these Imams (a.s.). They are the trustees of Allah over whatever knowledge, warning and excuses that have been revealed to them (from the heavens). They possess the doubtless Divine authority over those on earth. Whatever, (virtue and authority) is found in one of them is true of all of them and no one can reach such a stage without support from Allah.

Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (a.s.) has said, "I am the supervisor for Allah over Paradise and Hell. No one would go either one without my supervision. I am the greatest criterion and the Imam for those after me the provider of relief for those before me. No one is permitted to be ahead of me except Ahmad . I and he are on the same path except that he is called Ahmed (the most praiseworthy). I have been given six things. I have been the knowledge of deaths, that of the sufferings, that of the wills and the clear speech. That I have been give the power to attack the enemy, the power subdue the adversary, that I am the owner of the staff and Maysam and the being that would speak to people.” (a reference to verse 82 of chapter 27 of Quran)

“When the word about them comes true We shall make a creature appear to them on earth who will tell them that people had no faith in Our revelations.” (27:82)

How absolutely bored shitless and how little do you need to value the sack of human skin and blood that is your fucking conscious life to go here?  Seriously, the Dominos and Pizza Hut CEOs are presently sitting at a bar in some Polynesian shithole tax haven country, pissed as fuck and putting your use of ROFL to shame with hysterical laughter as they play literal limbo with the human race: “How low will they go?? Ah hah hah we have so much fucking money thanks to all our fuckhead customers” they’d say and just start passionately kissing because they’ve made such a beautiful infallible business model they’d have no choice not to. “2 tomato sauce squeezies included” 😐 did everyone in Australia just turn 4 years old?  Flaccid pastry encrusted [and I hope I go down in history for the use of not two but four quotations marks here] ““meat pies”” as a crust for what I refuse to call a pizza?  That’s like an AIDs dick ejaculating several smaller AIDs dicks - but you’re all giggling now aren’t you, isn’t it funny?  He he he what a fun treat, like that vegemite/Cadbury bullshit that came out a few weeks ago, fuck you all. And all the fucking local radio station/gen y media Facebook pages are sharing it and everyone is having a right old laugh and we all think it’s just a bit of fun but it isn’t - this is reality and you will all die one day and on your death bed I want you to fucking remember the day you and your little dickhead mates with their clothing purchased from parasitic companies like H&M/Zara and your stupid fucking Macklemore haircuts bought this horseshit on your high interest rate credit cards and sat around and watched Q&A and shared your ludicrous and unreasonable political opinions on twitter, begging for retweets from irritating and irrational left wing twitter personalities.  Not so fucking carefree and #yolo now are we?  In that public health system hospital; that agonising bowel cancer that is tearing your soul from your body - was it worth it?? All those 😂 😂 😂 emoji comments and the instagram likes from people you don’t even know? Not such a big old joke now, is it, you dying, debt ridden piece of shit.

Okay but Lucifer being corrupted by the Mark makes so much sense????

He was literally God’s favorite, his most trusted, so of course he’d give him the Mark, he had total faith in Lucifer. God couldn’t think of any place safer than his most faithful angel.

God’s not infallible though, and he didn’t realise what would happen to Lucifer, didn’t expect the Darkness to manipulate the purest of his sons, didn’t expect shadow to taint his Lightbringer.

Lucifer’s Corruption has always been God’s greatest regret.
