Removing Religion from Politics

Artie

Even though I am an atheist I have respect for religions and I understand people who are religious. Some of the most amazing people I know in life are old regular Baptist and I would entrust my life to them. The passion and love they show to their God can inspire me, an atheist. That being said I do not believe that we will progress as a country and even a species if we allow politics to be so widely controlled by religion of any kind. I believe United States elected officials should be allowed...

Religion was made to control people

Coyote18
TheCritic89

Creating an invisible being that constitutes laws and defines our humanity is the best way to gain control. In the past, sciences were stopped because it didn't follow the laws of God. For example: When Copernicus argued that the Earth was not the center of the universe and it was rather the sun, the church tried to quickly kill his story. Religions control groups of people....

Donald Trump is the best choice for President

monim14
rangerofthewest

Honestly, I just feel like many people do not give Donald Trump enough credit. He has a strong character that many people lack and DO need. Donald Trump is exactly what America needs; he knows how to push and nag and get his point across, he understands that he doesn't have to "fix" himself to fit in with what other people's views are; he's just a man with much needed qualities in a leader. Everything Donald Trump has said is nothing new to what have already been problems in the United States fo...

makeup: should girls be encouraged to wear makeup?

mairavb

Coming from a mostly male- dominated family, I have always been questioned as to why I dedicate part of my time to putting on makeup. Society incentives women to wear makeup so that they can be seen as more attractive; honestly, it is something that makes women feel better about themselves. It has given me more confidence in myself; when I do my makeup, it is a time that I dedicate to skin care as well, therefore treating my body better. I also find it entertaining, I really enjoy trying new...

"They told you that the primary purpose of the death of the Lord Jesus on the cross was to save you"

EGJ

They told you that the primary purpose of the death of the Lord Jesus on the cross was to save you...was it? I propose to you to start by tracing back the story of the cross from the very beginning: There..., in the paradise, God prepared for Adam and Eve what you may call "heaven on earth" and God was like a friend to them, "the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, where are you? (Genesis 3:9). God provided them with everything they need to make their lives wonderful, but Satan...

God is Real

Eyeofthebeholder
squonk

God is real. Science proves it. There are several experiments that consist proving that there is an eternal force that is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. Science also claims that "energy" can be neither created nor destroyed (reason enough to believe in an un-created, indestructible eternal force) while purporting other scientific "laws" like the Law of Bio-Genesis, The First & Second Laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Like Forces Repelling. Please feel free to start the debate "again...
