As a current High School student I know first hand how much kids are expected to plan their lives from a very early age. By 8th grade my home economics teacher had us do a presentation on what we wanted to be “when we grow up” and what college we…Continue

So for February, I'd like to choose More Than This by Patrick Ness. 1. Read the book. 2. Come back to this forum and leave your thoughts about the book. You can write a sentence, you can write an essay, it doesn't matter, whatever you want. 3.…Continue
The words of the Stark family are pretty straightforward. Unlike the other great houses they don't roar or not sow or whatever it is the Tully's do... swim, we are assuming. Instead, the Stark words are a call to action and a reminder to never forget what waits just beyond the Wall. Yet, despite the ominous family motto, most of their southern and even northern cousins tend to forget that winter is indeed coming, and of all the fantastical elements in Game of Thrones, this denial of the inevitable is perhaps one of the most understandable.

I can see the arguments people make in favour of God, I can see the supposed evidence, but again it is my own opinion that there is no solid argument in the case of god/gods/whatever. One thing that annoys the hell of out me, although, is this superiority complex both sides seem to enjoy.
For example, if a Fundie Christian were to come out, screaming bible quotes and trying to enforce his faith on me, I'd ruddy well bad mouth said person for thinking he has a higher deck than me. That his knowledge is greater, therefore he feels entitled to give me hell. But what some Atheists forget to remember is, they're in exactly the same boat. …Continue
