Does the universe have powers?

The definition of universe of course is open to your interpretation; could be your god, the physical universe, or maybe just your immediate environment/sphere of influence. I'm 27 and nearly 2 years into my career. I'm not happy. In fact I think I'm starting to loose my mind. A windlowless basement, unreliable car, no friends, no relatives around, and no woman isn't helping. I'm in no less financial debt than I was before I took this job. I'm no healthier. I've been called dumb too many times…See More

That last thing on my mind is poll numbers.Instead of people taking hard-lines on politics can't they just step back and work hard and be good honest people with integrity?An example would be my…See More

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
