  2. "Become what thou art!"

    "Become what thou art!" I am of the opinion that we all have a number of personal resonances (talents?) that if discovered give great emphasis to our life’s satisfaction. Those individuals who discover and exploit such a personal resonance can find great self-satisfaction. If that particular...

  4. "corrupting the youth"

    “corrupting the youth” Science informs us that we are creatures who have evolved over a period of billions of years. Our human nature has many traits, all of which are the products of these years of evolution. I suspect that every trait we have can prove to be both positive and negative...

  6. "gods with anuses"

    “gods with anuses” Humans seek to be more than animals. We seek to be gods or at least propagate that level above animal and just below God. That which promotes life is good that which promotes death is evil. “Evil lies not in the hearts of men but in the social arrangements that men take...

  9. "The more civilized we become, the less individual liberties we get to keep."

    "The more civilized we become, the less individual liberties we get to keep." This was a quote from a member of another forum. He actually wrote it with an air of "of course, so what?" What say you? **I'd like to add a poll, but that option is apparently gone. **
