"Consequently the security of society is not preserved, for, although the obnoxious member is mechanically cut off and sent far away out of sight, another criminal always comes to take his place at once, and often two of them. If anything does preserve society, even in our time, and does regenerate and transform the criminal, it is only the law of Christ speaking in his conscience." - Fyodor Dostoevsky
"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use" - Galileo
"It should be said that no being is called evil insofar as it is being, but insofar as it lacks some existence, as a man is called evil insofar as he lacks some virtue, and the eye is called bad insofar as it lacks the sharpness of sight" - Thomas Aquinas
"Being a lover of freedom I looked to the universities to defend it, knowing they had always boasted of their devotion to the cause of truth; but, no, the universities immediately were silenced. Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom, but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks. Only the church stood squarely across the path of Hitlers campaign for suppressing the truth. I never had any special interest in the church before, but now I feel a great affection and admiration because the church alone has had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual truth and moral freedom. I am forced to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly."

"IF THE standard changes, how can there be improvement, which implies a standard? Nietzsche started a nonsensical idea that men had once sought as good what we now call evil; if it were so, we could not talk of surpassing or even falling short of them. How can you overtake Jones if you walk in the other direction? You cannot discuss whether one people has succeeded more in being miserable than another succeeded in being happy. It would be like discussing whether Milton was more puritanical than a pig is fat.”
~G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy, III: 'The Suicide of Thought'.

Hey, I'm 20, Christian Male. With strong convictions to help the lost. But I must also add that I am rather argumentative >.< If I do not agree with you on the slightest thing I will end up arguing with you, unless I do not know much about a subject.
: P.... I honestly don't have much else to say ^^"....I might someday have a friend get on here and add what they think about me. o 3o
"God's ideal will is that allshall be saved, but His permissive will means only those that respond will be saved. Otherwise, why Christ? God could just have left things the way they were... and His elect would still have gone to Heaven."
