"The point of the original article was that atheists seem to want to avoid discussing the differences in people at all. While I'm sure this isn't the case, I was simply voicing the way I see things. It's true that at a…"
"When we talk about what it is to be *human* most people define it with a set criteria like the ability for rational thought and the ability to feel empathy for your fellow humans. To some extent I agree with that, but I do believe that there…"
"You should try going to a Mormon church on fast and testimony Sunday (First Sunday of every month). The idea is that people are supposed to get up in front of the congregation and give their personal testimony of how the Heavenly Father has…"
