God does not exist as anything but myth

God does not exist as anything but myth. As myth, the God concept servers for literary purposes, as a fictional character in a fable. But metaphysically, in reality, God does not exist. He does not exist for several reasons, all of which boil down to the fact that God is a contradictory concept, and therefore is an invalid concept. Please note that by reality I mean everything that exists, the whole universe. This includes material things, and immaterial things such as consciousness, and...

Just as food is not provided for free, yet is a necessity for life which must be earned by parents to feed their child, the same should apply to education. From the financial aspect, not all private schools would be expensive, just like not all grocery stores are expensive. Schools in poorer neighbourhoods would cost less, the price being set proportionately by Free Market. Cheaper schools will not have fancy facilities but still can provide good instruction. Education only requires enthusias...
