Sumin Amelia Je : It is all ending. I think i am standing at the end of everything . For several month, i was detained in my thoughts which keep teasing me. Started with some bad thing, i had to bear so many things, and i spent my time and my feeling meaninglessly. Some peoples silly behaviors torn me into countless pieces, and their arrogance and selfishness made me crazy. I thought they dont want to me alive, and my head gonna be exploded. I was silly. In addition, in really really short time, i saw so many many peoples dark side which can hurt somebodys heart. So i thought life isnt meaningful. What i can do was just praying, please dont disrupt me again, and let me forgive them. Then suddenly i realized so many things. In life, some good people can be turn into apposite one and some people are unworthy to me. Everyone has good side and bad side, and no one can judge them good or bad. And there were so many people who told me positive things. I really really appreciate them. Thanks for them, i am happy now. I lost so many things, but i am reconstructing them. The old song is right. Let it be. Because of many not good experience, i think i wide awake than before. But thanks for nothing. 7 hours ago - View -
Dave O'Neal : "Rules: In your status line, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don't take more than a few minutes and don't think too hard — they don't have to be the "right" or "great" works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag (at least) 10 friends, including me, so I'll see your list."

Bucky Rea : What the New Atheists Get Very Wrong About Religion Brilliant take down of the overhyped Christopher Hitchens approach to religion bashing. Regardless of the metaphysics of most religions, which frankly make no sense at all, the social fact of religion has been an overwhelming good in society. Religion establishes and reinforces moral standards, creates social cohesion is ways no other social force can, and has been the single most important driving force in spreading cultural exchange among neighboring nationalities. The Silk Road, Humanism, the Civil Rights Movement, the Industrial Revolution, the resistance to Totalitarianism, the growth of Constitutionalism, and nearly all other great forward leaps in human history have been rooted in religious values.
Yes, the bearded dude on the cloud with the silver gates makes no sense. And yes the loudest Christians in America today are actively anti-humanitarian and promote pro-poverty policies. These are distractions from the big picture of what religion has and can mean for a society failing to struggle with some really big moral quandries of the next century. I read Christopher Hitchens's book and all he ever proved was that there wasn't a Santa Claus, whom he just so happened to call "God." The biggest threats to human survival today are rooted in the areligious views of transnational corporate hegemony and its useful sock-puppet of economic libertarianism. That's not a God problem; that's a lack of love problem. 1 day ago - View -

KgosiEtsile Ipeleng Makhubela : The level of disrespect of felow South Africans @ tyms is embarassing! booing the President in such a magnificient event. I'm not blind 2 d Presidents mistakes, but rediculing him like dat is just unaceptable! If u nt happy, show it on ur voting ballot, not in this hooligan behaviour! Yes its ur right 2 express urself, but even the Bible says we must respect authority! And I guess its just as bad as those in social media blabbing about the font of his speech (not knowing the condition of his eyes) and waiting with a red pen 4 mistakes and missing d point! So what if the font of his tribute 2 Madiba is 80 and Bolded? Does it make him less worthy of respect? Or does it make him dumb? I personaly apreciate his initiative 2 print his speach in a font that he is comrtable in. With all said, u can jump, fly a kite, scream, disrespect and judge, its ur right, but when he enters, u still stand, in uniform, u salute him! He is still Number 1 and ur still in ur lil corner with a red pen. Let's grow up n not humiliate our country, if u nt happy, go vote next year, 4 nw, take a chill pill *like my comander says* 1 day ago - View -

RockingMrE : The Truth About Nelson Mandela Thank you Stefan Molyneux for clarifying what any rational person knew or suspected. And for the unnamed person that claims my ancestors are complicit in the South African apartheid, when they were Greek people that lived under Ottoman colonialism - F you. These leftist race baiters making excuses for Mandela, and whitewashing history, appal me. Nelson Mandela is portrayed in the mainstream media as a peace-loving anti-apartheid revolutionary and philanthropist. But what is the truth about Nelson Man...

Andile's apparatchikki like Ncedisa and many other dom kops who blindly follow whatever this so called intellectual and 'black consciousness' proponent, says, are very dangerous and detrimental towards the psyche of blacks. Yesterday, the sophist Andile wrote, fiercingly asserting his reasons why Biko would NEVER vote, and sheep-mided non-thinking oafs like Ncedisa and other puppets followed without questioning. Today, the chameleon has turned red, and it is busy talking about how it is essentially crucial to practice the democratic right or franchise as it were to vote in order to get the EFF into power, so that they could get the land back from whites - guess what! The sheeps are supporting this without questioning. And these people make us believe that they are thinkers? You fucken robots!
Mother fuckers, were not you the ones who said that the colonially-introduced-Parliamentary politics will never liberate blacks and the land can never be expropriated through the participation in the elections? Were you guys not using Zimbabwe as an analogy to your claim on dismissal of the electoral process, in the quest for land expropriation, wealth redistribution and black men liberation? Please dumb mother fuckers get yourselves together! 1 day ago - View -
Ray Comfort : Scientific facts in the Bible:
Psalm 8:8: "And the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas."
The sea is just a huge mass of water, how then could it have "paths?" Man discovered the existence of ocean currents in the 1850's, but the Bible declared the science of oceanography 2,800 years ago. Matthew Maury (1806-1873) is considered to be the father of oceanography. He was bedridden during a serious illness and asked his son to read a portion of the Bible to him. While listening, he noticed the expression "paths of the sea." Upon his recovery, Maury took God at His word and went looking for these paths. His book on oceanography is still considered a basic text on the subject and is still used in universities.

Wibawanto Nugroho Widodo : Indonesia as an enlightened democracy needs a commander-in-chief who walk his/her talk, dare to acknowledge the reality (actual beneath problems of the nation), has formal and informal capacity to address such problems, and restore the nation to the greatness.
We do not need a sophist leader, who gives up on the search for truth in order to play rhetorical games, using his/her persuasive powers on behalf of any case. He/she is relativist in his/her morality, disinterested in truth, suggesting that all that really mattered was power. He/she displays an appealing capacity to defeat a just argument by an unjust one and so use his/her cleverness to confuse ordinary people.
When conceptions and language struggled to keep up with reality, they become almost meaningless and turned into slogans, devoid of true meaning.
