"How many fallowers do you have. One million 10 million or even 50 million. It is true that democracy also considers power to the people but even if 50 million people fallow you the remaining 250 million might hold a bigger say. Also the arguments…"
"I guess it just sucks living under a democracy. Our country hit the 300,000,000 population mark in 2007 and the chances of legislature approving a law that all of us will agree on is highly improbable. The fact is we cant take the human element out…"
"I see. For those who are hurt by our countries laws I can see two main options. Go to a school of law and learn all the ethics and conducts of law. Once you have done this you can then try to enter a position that grants the power for you to add,…"
"I am not a law graduate so I will not even attempt to create or even provide a scheme to a law. I know some basic definitions of law and know why a few things wont work. I will leave the law making to those that have a specialized profession in that…"
"I was under the care of a gaurdian ad litem all the way till I was 18. The gaurdians job was to ensure that I was properly cared for as a minor and that I was properly represented to the fullest EXTENT OF THE LAW. A gaurdian or group of gaurdians…"
"It is not illegal for an adult to consent sexually to a minor. It is illegal for a minor to consent sexually to an adult. I am grateful that the law provided a structured environment for me to grow in. I just dont get why it is so hard for people to…"
"Here is a response from a friend of mine that is a third year law student: "So this is the problem with your proposal in regards to written law. Written law stands to outline rights and restrictions to the citizens governed by them. Your…"
"It protected me in the sense that I know some sex crazed 30 year old would be able to have the ability to even try to weasle his or her way out of a sex crime by looking for a minor to say yes lets have sex. I do appologize but I do not…"
"This is exactly what I ment about the 3 witnesses forming the law. Your proposal suggests that it is illegal for the minor to consent to sexual contact with an adult UNLESS these three court approved witnesses approve of the change of the law…"
"A lot of people on this particular forum are suggesting that the law needs to be changed to better satisfy our adolescent population. I just barely left the adolescent status (now 20 years old) and had no problems with these laws that protected me…"

"Well here is your proposal. It is illegal for a minor to consent to sex unless an agreement is made between three court approved advocates for the minor. Is that not what part of your plan suggests?

"Also this option leaves the law itself subject to discrimination. A minor wants to engage sexually with an adult that doesn't have good hygiene. Is this a valid argument if the minor says he/she has looked passed the persons imperfections."
I am not an opinionated individual. I base my life and beliefs on facts. This is why I have chosen to be agnostic in religious belief. I am open to the possibility of a higher being but only if factual evidence that can be repeated stands to prove that existance. The personal experiences of an individual will not sway my belief in a higher being because I cannot repeat the evidence they are presenting. I will not claim to know anything unless I have actually studied and cross referenced what I have learned. I do not fallow public opinion but instead fallow the facts. For example Fact: the U.S. is currently over $10,000,000,000,000 in debt Opinion: Obama is not working as he should to improve our debt. We can all agree that the U.S. is that much in debt. However having over three hundred million americans trying to throw in an opinionated suggestion on how to solve our problems would make quiet a mess of our country if it ran that way.

Just joined twitter and alot of the things got me thinking. I came accross think athiest when browsing some religious sections to see what might interest me.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I grew up. I went to church when I was a kid under the command of my parents. I began thinking what kind of person calls himself an all knowing being and kills millions if they dont fallow him. Anyone remember Hitler from history?
