I deeply take issue with condemning Islam as a whole just because of what some or even most of it's followers believe. I don't believe that many American muslims believe in such crazy and barbaric practices; probably they cherry pick the parts of the doctrine that resonate with them and reject the r...

When I was in Sunday school, I always though that the stories in the bible were pretty silly and unlikely, but I always believed they were metaphorical tales that God wrote to teach us about morality and spirituality. Or maybe I'm just projecting onto my 7-year-old self. Either way, I know I didn't ...

The fact that the physical activity in our brains somehow results in consciousness, our subjective experiences, is pretty surprising and amazing. It's enough to make me wonder if there really is something more going on behind the scenes. As much as some scientists like to pretend otherwise, consciou...

I am 100% pro-choice because I don't uphold human life as more sacred or special than other forms of life. The way I see it, if an individual does not value or is incapable of valuing his/her own life, and taking their life would not result in suffering for them or their loved ones, then it is moral...

I just don't want to be with someone who sees any sex act I do, but especially the more vulnerable ones, as a service. Aww, to be young and naive once more.. "Naive" implies a childish lack of knowledge. And it's belittling. Now you have puddingmouse saying that she has a mental illness (though obv...

Our scientific understanding of the world is very rarely correct, the world is a complex place there is so much we don't know. Scientists are not all knowing sages. Let's suppose your right, that we can't predict long-term climate change with any sort of accuracy. In that case, it's still ridiculou...

Lol, when I like a girl, I avoid eye contact, avoid talking to her, when I do talk to her I get really nervous and lose what little charm I ever had, and generally appear like I dislike her. When I'm around a girl I like, I'm not very good at regulating what I say and can come across as an a****** w...

This current Pope is a joke. Worse than the previous ones. If he wants my respect, he should declare a papal shutdown for good. That would be great. Worse than the previous one? Care to explain how? I think he seems like a pretty good man. It seems like you're letting your hatred of the Catholic ch...

I'm also a senior in high school and I feel much the same way you do. I've learned to accept myself and the way things are instead of worrying about how I'd like them to be, and have become more self-confident and less self-critical. I wouldn't necessarily say I feel happy- maybe something like mild...

I'm the opposite of all you. I enjoyed P.E. and shooting hoops, even if I can't catch sometimes. During the mile, I would join my running buddy (a fast runner, I needed motivation) and we would come up with a strategy to get good times while allowing leisure time. I liked having a class where I was...

I never was a big hand flapper. I don't think I even discovered it until a couple years ago. For stimming, I'd much rather hit a ball around than shake my hands.

The bible is very clear on the issue of homosexuality: If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. Witholding a tip is not harsh enough punishment for such a grave s...

It looks really fun. It doesn't have the wow factor that 64, Sunshine, and Galaxy had, but the Mario quality, creativity, and sense of fun are all present in great amounts. Multiplayer mode will be a blast.

If you think about it logically, ultimately nothing has an inherent point, purpose or meaning. Purpose and meaning only exist in our heads; they are abstract concepts imposed on objects by sentient beings. Therefore, the meaning of life is whatever you make it.
