Tell you’re kids that it’s OK to believe in God or not to believe– different people have different view and we are all good people! If another kid threatens your kid with Hell and tells him/her that they will go to Hell if they don't believe in God: tell your kid to tell the aggressive kid one of the following responses: -not everyone believes in God and it’s OK not to believe - we're all good if we do good or -stop being a bully (if they persist to threaten) or -Hell is as make believe as…See More

American fascisti

It is my contention that religion breeds fascism and has always.  The Church virtually brought Musollini, Hitler, Salazar and the Ustasha to power.  Some also claim that if paid for Hitler's war machine as well. It also was deeply involved in Death Squad funding and activity with American theocrats and The Family in and…See More

Welcome.  Your parents were hippies, weren't they?

Don't get me wrong.  I love the name, but it's usually an indicator of your parents' leanings.  ^.^

 

Oh, and did you mean post-doctoral?  As in you already have a Ph.D.?  Freaking impressive, at your age, if that isn't a typo or misstatement.
