It wasn't terrible and I wasn't like "ugh, I hate this" while reading it, but it just doesn't do anything special for me.

With all the evidence for the theory of evolution, why do some people still believe otherwise.Once you have got your head around the theory of evolution, it's pretty obvious that it's close to how it must work. After all, animal breeders do the same thing when they selectively breed their stock....

Our holy books says “Soul brought nothing when you born and nothing you will able to carry...when you die. Then why there is greed everywhere?
