    Everyone wants to talk about guns and save the children, but more kids kill themselves than are murdered and nobody wants to address why.

    Psychological Science gives the reason - as people lose touch with God they then lose purpose and meaning.

    The researchers found that this factor of religiosity mediated the relationship between a country’s wealth and the perceived meaning in its citizen’s lives, meaning that it was the presence of religion that largely accounted for the gap between money and meaning. They analyzed other factors—education, fertility rates, individualism, and social support (having relatives and friends to count on in troubled times)—to see if they could explain the findings, but in the end it came down to religion.

    When I was a kid, when you left school for the day, you left behind all the bullshit cliques, the bullies, all the crap that sucked.

    Today, kids can't get away from it. Social media 24/7. That has to be terrible.

    The left have created a rotten world for kids to grow up in and brainwashed them into believing their lives are meaningless.

    Bibles and korans have molested human DNA similarly. Nazism is morality itself.
