    A Day That Changed My Life

    It was August 23rd. 10 pm to be exact. I was in my kitchen drinking diet iced tea. I tuned my satellite box to PBS, and what was on? A documentary about the human subconscious mind. It was titled, "At the edge of dreaming". A woman announced that she was dying of cancer. She...

    One Creation, Many Reasons

    Sometimes? More Like Always.

    I've even seen something on the history channel about it. There's a theory that god is hardwired into our minds, as another type of instinct. The reason for this, is to protect us from fear. The world would be complete chaos if everyone believed there would be no afterlife...

    Why We Believe In Gods

    The main reason we believe in Gods is that as a result of evolution, we wanted to feel that we had purpose. We did not want to face the fact that once you die, you're dead. The Sumerians invented God as a result. Their brains wanted to make sense of the world around them.
