Evolution is very agreeable. However…
One cannot “agree” with “evolution’s” evidence-based conclusions, because:
1. Evolution is not a person, a clearly defined thesis, or a single study.
2. One cannot agree with evolution as a whole, without assenting to a variety of theories which are contradictory. A majority of people who “agree” with evolutionary theory, have not studied what they are agreeing to, and treat it more like a matter of politics. If they aren’t creationists, they MUST be evolutionists, and vice versa. It is like voting along party lines, rather than thinking for one’s self.
Evolutionary theory is, in fact, commonly misunderstood, widely divided, full of contradicting ideas, and almost completely lacking consensus between geneticists, philosophers, biologists, and etc.
Granted, it is plain to see that evolution (however you may define it) is (in some way) occurring. However, there is no dominant narrative in evolutionary theory, and therefore nothing for me to agree with.
THINK FOR YOURSELF AND QUESTION AUTHORITY. Even if that authority seems agreeable.

Am I the only one that HATES seeing these?
Like, when I am out in nature, enjoying the shit out of the lack of humans, and I see some rocks stacked up (probably by some goonish toddler and his square parents), I KICK THEM MOTHERFUCKERS DOWN. Cause fuck that, nature hates it when you stack rocks in her hidden places.
Nature hates you.
Seriously, though. Stop stacking rocks, people. It ruins the vibe.
Ever heard of “leave no trace”?
That doesn’t just mean “don’t litter”. It means leave no trace of your existence.
Fuck anyone who does this.

Why and How to Leave FacebookNick Briz is a Chicago-based new media artist, educator, and organizer. Briz teaches at the Marwen Foundation and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has shown his work internationally, and is the co-founder of the GLI.TC/H conference. While all of that is undeniably impressive, I must say I knew Briz was a genius when I first saw, “Apple Computers,” a powerful affront against Apple and a manifesto for the prosumer of our age. So, when Briz made “How To / Why Leave Facebook,” a piece about leaving Facebook, I knew I should pay attention.I recently left Facebook as well, but I was uninterested in any self-congratulatory artwork or dramatic fuck-you to the social platform. I hadn’t enjoyed my time on Facebook for a while, but Facebook had been such a large part of my life for 9 years. I don’t buy most complaints about it “not being real life,” or some useless addiction. As the largest social network in the world, Facebook is very much a part of real life, I just hadn’t felt like I was benefitting from that part of my life.My vague discontentedness with Facebook finally reached a boiling point in light of theiremotional contagion study. The highly controversial academic study was recently published, and it claims that Facebook had secretly manipulated the emotional state of nearly 700,000 of its users. I understood that Facebook’s main purpose is to make advertising dollars from it’s users, but this felt excessively creepy. And as VICE News has already reported, one of the study’s researches received funding from the Minerva initiative—helping the Pentagon study and quell social unrest—that made it all the more creepy. Yet I knew Briz would offer some insight beyond the most recent headlines.
