DNA Phenotyping

matthewz17

In June, the Supreme Court ruled that it is constitutional to take DNA samples from people who have been arrested for serious crimes"without a warrant, much less a conviction. Like bits of DNA taken from people found guilty, those samples can be entered into a database and used not only for the case at hand, but compared to other crime scene samples, connecting the arrestee to past crimes. The case before the Supreme Court focused on Alonzo Jay King, Jr., who was arrested for assault...

Darckshadow
ViceRegent

From the Very beginning, the people who created the constitution were looking out for themselves. While many of the people are looked back upon well, there are parts of their life that are looked over. Many were white, rich, and had slaves. Currently, slavery is abolished, the Rich have more power than ever, and the fact that Trump is nearly voted into Presidency shows how racist the general populace still is.

Salvation / Justice Paradox - all people shall be saved

hmk

Christianity universal statements: There is a God that will reward all good people with eternal bliss and all bad people with eternal damnation, giving to all equal chances, unconditional love and perfect justice.

Fact: Presuming Hitler died as a child, he would have been rewarded eternal bliss. Question: Do we really have equal chances? Don't you wish you hav...
