    Nature And Reasons For Human Experience

    If you listen to science, we have no purpose. The Universe was born out of an imaginary white hole, the big bang. Careers and the egos of scientists are no different from the egos of warmongers, dictators or even so called Saints. They are limited in their abilities and forever...

    Manners seem to be missing in so many aspects of modern life. I know there are many of the older generations here who say my generation have poor manners, and I would agree, and debate that perhaps it is a fruit of the cosmopolitan society. I am always polite, I thank and I...
