Removing Religion from Politics

Artie
Mulan

Even though I am an atheist I have respect for religions and I understand people who are religious. Some of the most amazing people I know in life are old regular Baptist and I would entrust my life to them. The passion and love they show to their God can inspire me, an atheist. That being said I do not believe that we will progress as a country and even a species if we allow politics to be so widely controlled by religion of any kind. I believe United States elected officials should be allowed...

Religion was made to control people

Coyote18
TheCritic89

Creating an invisible being that constitutes laws and defines our humanity is the best way to gain control. In the past, sciences were stopped because it didn't follow the laws of God. For example: When Copernicus argued that the Earth was not the center of the universe and it was rather the sun, the church tried to quickly kill his story. Religions control groups of people....

Donald Trump is the best choice for President

monim14
rangerofthewest

Honestly, I just feel like many people do not give Donald Trump enough credit. He has a strong character that many people lack and DO need. Donald Trump is exactly what America needs; he knows how to push and nag and get his point across, he understands that he doesn't have to "fix" himself to fit in with what other people's views are; he's just a man with much needed qualities in a leader. Everything Donald Trump has said is nothing new to what have already been problems in the United States fo...

"They told you that the primary purpose of the death of the Lord Jesus on the cross was to save you"

They told you that the primary purpose of the death of the Lord Jesus on the cross was to save you...was it? I propose to you to start by tracing back the story of the cross from the very beginning: There..., in the paradise, God prepared for Adam and Eve what you may call "heaven on earth" and God was like a friend to them, "the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, where are you? (Genesis 3:9). God provided them with everything they need to make their lives wonderful, but Satan...

Dark matter is a hindrance to scientific advancement

TruthLibrary
ssadi

When astronomers observe the universe, their models do not match what they see. For example, astronomers predicted a very large and dense object in the middle of our galaxy, the Milky Way -- since the countless solar systems are being attracted. However, when we looked towards the center of the Milky Way... we saw nothing. So what happens next? Bright minds, instead of seriously questioning their understanding of the universe, declare that they can't possibly be wrong (ego through the roof)...

gay animals exist

blackliger777
harrytruman

There are there are hundreds or even thousands of animals that are actually gay. For example. Male dolphins often break away from the females to engage in all-male orgies, apparently for fun. There are plenty of females around, yet they still engage in this, as do other sea mammals. They are not trying to dominate each other, they're pleasuring each other playfully. Sometimes they will pair up REGARDLESS of availability of females. Male giraffes sometimes show affection towards each...
