Is religion a delusion? By the term "delusion" one describes a belief which is not supported by any evidence, without that implying that it is necessarily wrong; it stands on pure faith. The same goes for religion. Countless people believe in a higher being, only in order to comfort themselves; and that is to be expected, since religion promises its followers the fulfillment of their greatest wishes: a loving fatherly being which watches them, bestows justice and provi...

privatizing social security with guaranteed minimum is better than the current system

privatizing social security with guaranteed benefits is better than the current system in this system only relatively safe investments allowed by the government would be allowed. this is better than the current system because at investment returns, people would receive a much larger income in retirement. the downside, if markets fail, would be a problem whether or not we allow people to invest privately. even in our current system, if the economy tanked, the government will still be on th...

Bring it!!...

confederate statues shouldnt be in places of honor

yomama12

confederate statues should not be in places of honor the civil war was about slavery, plain and simple. if you look at the reasons stated for the war, it always went back to slavery. only in the abstract was it about states' rights, and there has been a misinformation campaign to retrospectively say that's what it was about. research history and you will see the truth. so do we want statutes of men who led the fight for slavery? maybe in the same way we'd want a statue of hitler, maybe at a m...

Marriage equality is a fundamental right that very human deserves. Imagine going through life without having the right to marry because it makes some unhappy. They will say the bible says so, but that is false....
