Many of the Christians I have regular contact with are moral despite their belief in their Bible. They praise their god and tell me that the instructions for performing forced abortions, all the killings, and the rejection of homosexuals are things of the past that have nothing to do with good Christians of today. It's like these Christians recognize those parts of their Holy Bible that are incompatible with morality and label those parts as "just misinterpreted" or "from another time". They…Continue

But there's a flaw in our ability to detect what we perceive as opposing colors such as Red and Green. To our eyes, mixing red and green pigments gives us grey, not the color Red-Green. Our eyes cannot see red-green as a color. Dogs have a 2 color system, meaning they still see…Continue
I was on the fence about some of the arguments over bleeding heart verses fiscal conservation, until I gave it some thought about what conditions would be like without enough health care. I think I scared myself.
Health care being a right or a privilege seems to be asking the wrong question. If you really think you live on an island that has no disease you’re delusional. Poor health in just 1 individual can lead to a few concerned individuals attempting to care for the ill,…
