Is Richard Dawkins Really a Scientist? Atheists often erroneously claim that atheism is the default position. The true default position of science is that there is a physical reality called "universe". The default question of science then becomes, how and why is there a physical reality called "universe". Even Richard Dawkins agrees with this, stating that the "God question" is "central to all of science". Atheists don't get a pass any more than the rest of us.

Is Mainstream Media Even a Little Bit Legit? American mainstream media habitually fails to address issues in a legitimate manner that could actually help achieve legitimate reform. Instead, we are treated to a giant merry-go-round shell game of opposing pundit charades; both "sides" whining about and belittling the other, with neither offering any coherent plan for actually achieving reform.

Should We Put Our Swords Away? Pacifism is more complex than it may appear. One form of pacifism is to never strike back, which was practiced personally by Martin Luther King, Jr. While King was giving a speech, a man jumped on stage and repeatedly punched him. King refused to strike back while instructing others surrounding the man to not harm him.

Is Atheism Scientific? Those saying there is no God or might be no God, are trying to sell the rest of us the greatest of all known human superstitions, that the universe either did or could have magically randomly appeared. Such positions, however far-fetched, require supporting evidence within a legitimate scientific discussion, the same as any other position.

Where is the Great American Dream? Today two wage-earners often need to work two and more jobs in order to afford what most working Americans not long ago took for granted. The gap between the wealthy and the poor continues to grow, and the American middle class is fast disappearing. Is this due to the cost of foreign wars, taxing the wealthy less and less, deregulation of Wall Street, open bribery of our so-called 'representatives', or all of this and more?

How Appalling Can American City Leaders Be? Cities across the United States are callously and indifferently arresting American citizens for the 'crime' of being poor, even though national, state and local comparative statistical studies clearly demonstrate it is far less expensive for taxpayers to house the homeless than to not house them.

Can Charles Darwin be Trusted? In spite of what various modern 'scholars' claim, Charles Darwin, according to his own words, credited our Creator with being behind the universal reality and processes of life. According to Darwin himself, "One can be an ardent Theist and evolutionist."

Can We Afford to House the Homeless? The State of Utah has discovered that it is less expensive for taxpayers to house the homeless than to not house the homeless. In fact, it is a lot less expensive.

Why Are There Homeless Veterans in America? What manner of nation claims to be the greatest nation on earth and a beacon for freedom and democracy, while millions of her own citizens live in open squalor?

Can Congress Be Reformed? Proposed Constitutional Amendment to rid our government of big-money influence. Our children's future has been sold down a no-strings-attached, golden-platter river of unprecedented gilded tax haven and bailout bonus bonanza. Experts say rather than being reformed, banks are behaving worse than ever, driving the world to the brink of far worse economic catastrophe.

Does Science Really Know What is True? What is called "science" from a fair historical view, represents a constant changing of even the most fundamental of concepts. How much does science really know about the universal reality we reside in?

Is There Really Life in the Future? Ever notice that the mainstream media never mentions the indisputable medical fact that pollution is very bad for people? Instead, it focuses a silly debate on whether global warming is caused by pollution, which is irrelevant to the established medical facts demonstrating, beyond all doubt, that pollution is extremely harmful for us, our children, and our children's children.

Does the NRA Really Support the 2nd Amendment? Is the mainstream media really in cahoots with the NRA and gun manufactures? Ever notice how they draw an artificial line through the center of the 2nd Amendment, limiting it to private gun ownership, rather than the much larger issues of "Arms" that it actually addresses?

Are People Really Sheep? Is there anyone among us who is truly an independent, non-conforming individual? Do we tend to imitate rather than initiate and otherwise, conform to the norm without even thinking twice or even realizing that we do?

What is the Real Right Wing Agenda? Right-wing extremists are the first to wave flags and pretend how much they believe in the Constitution and yet, they constantly whine and complain we can't trust the government. Apparently, they were asleep at the wheel during civics class, when the rest of us learned we the people are the government.

Should We Care if Everyone Has Health Care? Have you ever considered how many American children catch common colds because their neighbor's children don't have adequate health care? Mainstream media prefers to debate superficial "sides", rather than inform us regarding the obvious need for universal health coverage in light of the overwhelming medical facts of contagious diseases.
