    Love is not enough. Love is not the answer to

    everything. It's a necessary ingredient but it's not the only thing we need. It's a driving force among many other forces. It's our inspiration today but it doesn't guarantee forever. Junk fairytales. Love is not enough.

    Free Thinking... What an incredible concept.

    In theory, should we not all be free thinkers? Are we not all relatively in control of the way we think? Unfortunately, no. Free thinking is an active process, rather than a passive one, meaning that in order to be free thinkers, we must all pursue the privilege to create our...

    I quickly come up with thoughts of anything at

    any time. I voice my opinions and share my ideas of what I like and don't like on other people's thoughts as well as my own. I also question everything.

    Quote From Bertrand Russell

    I'm not sure I'd call myself completely atheistic. Maybe agnostic-atheist. In any case, I hold fairly strongly the conviction that organised religion is intellectual and philosophical suicide, and I just don't have time for people who want to kill themselves or drown in pity and...

    I am someone who doesn't believe a word I'm told

    because it is all lies. Society is programmed to become a sickening unity where no one thinks different. Fortunately, I am not one of those programmed "people" as I think outside the box from most of my peers. Numbers and grades shouldn't define me, as I am wise in ways that can...

    I think the root problem of the world is lack

    of individualism. People are blind, they lack education, character integrity and critical judgment. They are insecure and weak and because of that they need some 'bigger powers' to rely on. Is it God, or a nation, it doesn't matter the point is, because people are too weak to...

    Exploring My Free Mind.

    Ever been raised to believe a certain way? Or ever been told you can't dress this way, think like that, blah blah? Guess that makes a billion of us. Lets just say I learned to think for myself when I admited that I'm not like everyone else, nor should I strive to be. My mother...

    If Christianity is true.

    .. Why are there still Jews? Why does Jesus resemble Apollos? Why does the scenario resemble Demi God status? Why are you cursed if you don't follow Jewish teaching AND believe in Jesus.

    Fluoride: Detox Seems To Be The Only Way Out

    I really do try hard not to engage in religious

    All that Israel wants is to defend itself!

    That is the only thing Israel does! Israel loves defending itself, just enjoys doing that! That's why they build Jewish settlements on Palestinian land, so that they can defend themselves over there! That's why they've rejected a peace treaty with Hamas: http://mondoweiss.net...

    Or at least I like to think I am.. I like to be open to new things.. New possibilities.. New encounters... And if I let too many things influence my way of thinking I wouldn't be able to grow as an individual... So.... I believe that being a free thinker is almost a must
