questionall:

No, you are free to state your opinion but if your opinion involves calling other people names or degrading them that is NOT an opinion - that is liable and there is a difference.  For instance, you can say you believe gay marriage is wrong and that is your opinion - no one can force you to be gay or enter a gay marriage.  However, calling people who are gay derogatory names and claiming they will go to hell is wrong and will get you called out not only for liable but for hypocrisy and cherry picking.  So yes, you can say whatever you like but you will hear and see the consequences of what you choose to say.

Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean. Neil deGrasse Tyson in response to “Aliens can’t exist because we haven’t found them yet” (via unusual-entities)

There are two great mysteries that overshadow all other mysteries in science. One is the origin of the universe. That’s my day job. However, there is also the other great mystery of inner space. And that is what sits on your shoulders, which believe it or not, is the most complex object in the known universe. But the brain only uses 20 watts of power. It would require a nuclear power plant to energise a computer the size of a city block to mimic your brain, and your brain does it with just 20 watts. So if someone calls you a dim bulb, that’s a compliment. Michio Kaku (via mindblowingscience)
