Envisage

A controversial topic. Don't you think that believing in something, that has ample evidence, (Even though it's a theory.) is more alluring, and "sane" than believing in something that only has Evidence in a Book? The Creation story states that Adam and Eve were the first two humans on Earth....

Normal, mature mammals are not only sentinent but have other mental capabilities as well. 4.

Minimal torture is that in the former case the victim"s will is broken only temporarily and in a contained manner, and their consequent humiliation is limited. (4.) Torture targets autonomy itself, an...
