Also by Maze+15How liberalism is destroying church
Attending church is an ancient tradition, and according to the Christian tradition, clergy are all straight males. But that was changed in the 1960s and 70s, allowing women to be ordained as clergy. Now they're even letting homosexuals become clergy. But here's the rub: if the clergy, the people leading the tradition don't respect the tradition enough to obey it themselves, WHY SHOULD ANYONE ELSE RESPECT IT OR OBEY IT? So church attendance has been in a steady decline ever since, amirite?
Also by Maze+45Scientific Study finds that up to 4 times more heat (and only 1/3rd as much moisture) enters the atmosphere when forest is cut down and converted to agriculture.
Given the fact that over half the mature forest on earth is already gone, and carbon dioxide is only about four one hundredths of one percent of the atmosphere (0.04% or 400 ppm), a trace element, it's much more plausible that the true cause of climate change is deforestation, amirite? More
Also about current events+294School would be much more educational and entertaining if there was at least one class a day for "General Knowledge". The teacher would be more of a facilitator than an instructor and would have valuable discussions with the students about things you need to know to succeed or how the world works, and the class would also consist of healthy debates about current events. This way, the children would be prepared, aware, and more confident about voicing their opinion. amirite?

Also about current events+22We formulate our opinions of the world based mostly on news that has been selected, edited, and presented by an intermediary. For instance, how many of you participated in the "Arab Spring"? These intermediaries - news corporations mostly - have their own agendas, and painting an accurate, even-handed picture of an event might not be part of it. Therefore, if you truly want to be informed about current events, you need to get your information of at least two (often opposing) sources, amirite?
