    Fascinating

    it's fascinating to see what a brain is capable of, memorizing, being complex and full of real beauty and being fine.  the beauty of an intellectual mind. It is like a garden, big and beautifully arranged. I wish I can become like that one day.

    Why Religion Should Be Eradicated From Society

    The topic discussed in this essay is religion and why it should be erradicated from society. Religion is bad and it has done little good for society. It has killed more people than any nuclear missile has before. Believers use the argument that science has produced weapons to...

    It Just Came Nurturally

    From the time I was 16 or so, even though I detested high school and suffered terribly at the hands of peers, teachers and family, I knew my future lay in some kind of mathematical science. It was my escape route. Or so I dreamed and schemed. The only other escape route I could...
