    When people issue expectations there is no need

    to get ruffled. Disappointment is natural and when their high expectations are not met they will experience it. Look around you. There is a world of possibilities just waiting to be explored. Authority figures are just that...figures, not actual authority. You can step out...

    We're living in a culturally

    and sociologically quite backwards period when it comes to the perceptions of religions. In the Eurocentric west, it is widely believed that Europe and the western civilisation is the birthplace of all modernity, and, on the opposite, Arabic and Muslim world is considered to be...

    that we must keep our personal life and spiritual life separate. When will they understand that's not good it works?

    I am always trying to get at he cause of things.

    Always considering in my mind the motivation and the details of any topic... So I ask questions. I once went to a retreat with the head honchos of a church for three days... The deacon asked me..."so do you feel like you learned anything" and I was like..."no...this is all the...

    Freedom of Thought (part I)

    USA is, as always, just creating a mess of chaos

    and destruction. Its goal is not to win in the war, because it has no allies that would be loyal to it in Syria and Iraq, so, they want to sustain the war as long as they can, to weaken all of the forces included and eventually come up with a solution that will suit them. And as...

    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...

    "Free thinkers are those

    who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it i essential for right thinking; where it is absent, discussion is apt to become worse...

    I Choose To Parent Differently.

    I have 4 incredible kids, ranging in ages from 8- 19. They all are intelligent, witty and college bound. They also, like all kids I know, test boundaries and test me to see if I'm paying attention. They are amazing, but not perfect. Lately, it's come to my attention that my...

    I Wish - Sheeple Rant

    Recently I was discussing on the possibility of

    the existence of a multiverse with someone. I have to admit that it was pretty convincing, but when you look at it you might find that it requires the same leap of faith that religious does. First off, its obvious that our universe is finite, the fact that it is constantly...

    I Wonder About This

    Seems like something quite a few people claim to be. If you don't think freely, you wouldn't know it, would you? Or why would you admit that you aren't a free thinker? I can't imagine anyone who would admit it. Ask people to define what a freethinker is and all their definitions...

    All that Israel wants is to defend itself!

    'power of positive thinking' is one of the

    Fluoride: Detox Seems To Be The Only Way Out

    Quote From Bertrand Russell

    Is God willing to prevent evil,

    I think the root problem of the world is lack
