Hayd

There's a sentiment among some that makes them say things like: "You can't tell me to shut up or call me stupid because of what I said. The 1st Amendment protects free speech." Actually the 1st Amendment just prohibits Congress from passing certain kinds of laws, like ones that take away free speech. "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech."

The school should also have a place to have lunch. In other places in the world, like Brazil, kids can stay in school for lunch or get out to buy something to eat, and they don't get hurt or don't come back to school. Some...

How do atheists ratiionally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Sarasaz

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheist know truth from fiction?...
