CigaretteTake the smoke in deepMore Like This
Let it run through your blood till it begins to seep
Take a good long drag
Let it leave your lungs with a bit of a lag
There will be peace for the rest of the night
Or least until the end of this light
Just need a sanction from all this stress
Life's running through my mind causing a mess
Just this one smoke will clear the air
Slow my mind down till I don't care
I'm too weak to deal with my own issues
And I'm too much a man to my sob story and grab a tissue
I'd rather light up this smoke and live in denial
While behind me my problems just pile
Just one more light, hand me my cigarette
Just so I can have some time where I can forget
Through my problems into the thick gray abyss
If I can't see them then they don't exist
But this cigarette won't last forever
So I better light up again or get clever
Cause once that fog clears I won't be ready
To charge head on into my problems and remain steady
Before I know it happens again and I dive back into the smoke
Define a ManDefine for me a manMore Like This
Tell me what he can't and can
Tell me of his appearance, how he looks
And show me where it's stated in books
What makes a boy a man in truth?
What test must he pass to show proof
Of his strength and maturity
Of his resolve and purity
What does a man do that makes him so?
Is a man all the wiser, what secrets does he know?
When does this metamorphosis occur?
Is it easily seen or is the transition a blur?
You can't tell the difference between the two
When the definition is so askew
Call me a boy, call me a man
But no matter what I'll do all I can
Carry My SoulWhen it seems that nothing is good anymoreMore Like This
When it seems that nothing is right
You just gotta break through that door
And see your light
Then nothing will cause you to fall
And you'll see the sunny day
You'll finally break though your prison wall
And come out and say,
Carry my soul
Into the night
It won't matter though
Cause I'll still have my light
Drag me to the darkest abyss
Lock the door and throw the key away
I'll still live in bliss
And see the beauty of the day
Carry my soul, carry my soul
Into the night
It won't matter though
Cause I'll still have my light
Even when life's crashing down on me
And I can't find my way home
I'll still be able to get off my knee
Cause I know that I'm not alone
So carry my soul (carry my soul)
Into the night (into the night)
It won't matter though (it won't matter though)
Cause I'll still have my, still have my light

I am sorry that I destroyed your perceptions
I am sorry that I rebuked your most hallowed beliefs
I am sorry that I am not as innately malleable as you would wish of me
I am sorry that I am not as weak as you assumed when you attacked me
I am sorry that you have to die out of spite
I am sorry you are a fool
I am sorry you have no future
I am sorry you made it this far, only to fall on your face
I am sorry you do not find it as entertaining as I do
I am sorry you ever were
I am sorry you
I am sorry
There is nothing left of you but me
I am not sorry about that

In 1956, "In God We Trust" was adopted as the United States official motto. This motto has been on our coins since 1864 and on our paper currency since 1957. In 1954, the words "Under God" where added to the Pledge of Allegiance. The question of whether or not these phrases are constitutional has been argued on all levels, from the dinner tables of average Americans, all the way up to the Supreme Court. I personally believe that these phrases are unconstitutional, but the arguments for it have been so overused that I feel repeating them would be beating a dead horse.

Resolution 1580 (2007)
The dangers of creationism in education
1. The aim of this resolution is not to question or to fight a belief the right to freedom of belief does not permit that. The aim is to warn against certain tendencies to pass off a belief as science. It is necessary to separate belief from science. It is not a matter of antagonism. Science and belief must be able to coexist. It is not a matter of opposing belief and science, but it is necessary to prevent belief from opposing science.
2. For some people the Creation, as a matter of religious belief, gives a meaning to life. Nevertheless, the Parliamentary Assembly is worried about the possible ill-effects of the spread of creationist ideas within our education systems and about the consequences for our democracies. If we are not careful, creationism could become a threat to human rights, which are a key concern of the Council of Europe.
How I Became an AtheistHow I became and AtheistMore Like This
In my life I've been asked many questions on how I became an Atheist. They were more or less the same. They asked "are you angry at God", "did something happen","have you read the Bible","how is it possible not to believe" and other similar to these. If you're an Atheist you know what I'm talking about. These are pretty common. Also, these questions remind me the same questions asked to the gay people when the gay rights movement first started. The people behind these questions? More or less the same. These questions will be asked by your average theist person that has no idea what an Atheist is and most possibly is scared to ask questions and doubt his own faith.
I was brought up in a Christian Greek Orthodox household but my parents didn't have strict control over my beliefs. That was step one. We were a family that liked to travel abroad a lot, specialy in Europe and because one of my aunts is married to a Turkish person (surprise!), I
I Wasn't Born An AtheistI didn't always used to not believe.More Like This
I used to be a Christian, one that went to a Lutherarn school, read the Bible every day, went to chapel on Wednesdays and church on Sundays, prayed every night before I went to bed, and always said thanks at every meal. I viewed myself to be a very devoted Christain girl, wanting to do nothing more than to please God and get into Heaven.
Yet, I had questions. I always had questions about my faith. I had some scientific questions and I had some historical questions, but for the most part, I had honest questions about this so-called Almighty Lord I followed.
Why did God create Hell?
Why did God say homosexuality was a sin?
Why did God despise birth control?
Why didn't God stop those that killed in His name, breaking His 5th commandment?
Why did good people who were not followers of God go to Hell?
Why did God allow there to be rape, murder, famine, war, and so much more worldly cruelities in the world if He had the power to stop it all?

What Harm is... Faith Healing?Several times, especially recently, I've been asked questions like "Why do you always talk badly about religion?" and "Why pick on people's beliefs?" For most of us who have gone from believer to nonbeliever, we understand perfectly why we have hostility towards the religion(s) of our past. For some it's the constant bullying of religious family and friends trying to "save" us. For others, losing the faith means escaping a system of emotional traumatization, manipulation, and abuse, only to be faced with ostracization and abandonment afterward. But these are not the harmful things about religion that I am going to address today - no, what I'll be touching on today is "faith healing."More Like This
Faith healing is defined as "healing achieved by religious belief and prayer, rather than by medical treatment." To nonbelievers, even to most people who practice various religions, the thought of rejecting medical treatment in favor of prayer for an inj
Religion is RidiculousHave you ever stopped and thought, I mean really just taken five minutes out of your day to sit down and think about the boring and antagonizing subject of religion? I have, and I would recommend that everyone also does so, whether they be Christian, Atheist, Muslim, it doesn't matter, just take the time out of your day to think about religion. By religion, I am not referring to the practices of religion or it's followers, I am referring to the very foundation of a religion itself: the idea of a deity, and the religious texts.More Like This
It's easier to do so if you pick one and focus on it. I'll use Christianity as an example:
Supposedly, there is some sort of being somewhere out there in the universe. We don't know much about this being, we just know that he's something, and that he's somewhere out there. This being is said to posses many traits that are similar to those possessed by humans. It is supposedly immaterial, created the Universe as we know it, and is a constantly present and l
