When did it become a fad to be an "intellectual thinker". Maybe I'm immature, maybe I can read through B.S. But the "Intellectual thinker" is probably less than 200 years old. I understand being literate and I understand the freedom to ponder, but that does not mean sitting around in coffee houses and 'thinking outside of the box' means you are smart.

Sometimes I get a little irritated when a Muslim says, "God doesn't have son, what need for there is a son to God?" All I have to say is that 1. Jesus is called the Son of God. That is his title, Mohammad was called Mohammad and you consider him the last of the prophets...
Why do people resort to name-calling when making a political argument?I find this behavior highly offensive and have to stop myself from responding with the same tone of the original poster. I've always believed that people use name-calling as an argument when they cannot support their point of...
Hillary has hinted and has been fundraising in the last month, which some say indicates she is preparing for another run at President Trump. Others say she's just trying to make it look like she's a candidate to keep the law off of her tail.Thoughts?
While at a doctor's appointment with my husband, my cell phone rang. This is not a common thing, as I don't have a so-called "smart" phone, and I very, very rarely give out the number. It's for emergencies and keeping in touch while away from home.I had earlier tried to reach...
I have been with my boyfriend now for two years, he is my first "real boyfriend." I am living with him now and have been for about a year. He told me that he planned to propose to me over the summer, which has passed, and I am still not engaged? Then he told me he was going to propose to...
