Non-traditional Marraige

Posted on May 25, 2015 at 10:57pm 19 Comments

For all of those in favor of gay marriage, what are the feelings on polygamy?

Prepositions

Anyone ever check out the Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe (CTMU)?

Posted on June 2, 2014 at 9:24pm 16 Comments

One of the smartest men in the world is Chris Langan apparently, and he developed this theory and wrote a book that is now on my reading list. Anyone on ThinkAtheist ever look into this work?

Is government a more powerful force than love?

Posted on May 25, 2014 at 1:00am 10 Comments

I didn't join this site to take other people's words out of my mouth.

I attempted to emphasize the importance of love amid the current trend of legalized gay marriage. I'm not anonymous, so anyone can go to Facebook to verify my support of my gay friends' new marriage intentions.

Marriage is a much older religious institution than a governmental one, and marriage is younger than love. Tell me ThinkAtheist, does law matter more than love?
