Greetings!Was the global flood described in Genesis a truly historical event? Is there scientific evidence which lends credibility to this terrifying deluge? As a biblical creationist and student of science, I assert that such evidence indeed exists and even goes beyond lending credibility; evidence exists which demonstra...

Experimenting on animals for scientific purposes should not be banned because of several things, such as : 1. There is no such things as rights for animals,that's why scientist have been experimenting on animals.

Imagine one of your family suffer a disease with cure that can't be found because scienti...

Most don't know what science is or how science operates.

Joshuaite
ContraDictator

Very few know how to think for themselves - to reason - to use logic anymore so they have no choice but to...
