    Hell: exothermic or endothermic?

    My goodness, that person really finished his test early! Anyway, I always just sort of figured Hell was exothermic because it was full of fire, which is an exothermic reaction. But I always have a tendency of oversimplifying things. Meh. Kudos to this person! That was an A well deserved.

    Unchallenged. Actually, my Spanish teacher had a friend who died from the bombing, so it's fairly close to home for me. :( Tragedies suck.

    What book are you reading at the moment?

    Oye, you can't go wrong with a good teen fantasy. I'm reading Howl's Moving Castle. By Diana Wynne Jones. The woman is a genius. A published author of over 30 years, she only gets better at it. :)

    Find your fairy!

    My fairy is called Oak Elffilter (As in, the filterer of elves.? Gotta make sure they don't get through! o_O) She is a cheerful sprite, she lives in forests of oak and lime trees, she is only seen on Midsummer's Eve. *huff* How dreadfully boring. I want to avenge widows in a bone-chollling...

    Gay Marriage

    It was my understanding that Jesus said nothing about homosexuality at all. And that the Homosexuality referred to in the Old Testament is actually addressing a from of idol worship in which people engage in homosexual activity to bring themselves closer to certain goddesses. Therefore these...

    Nichiren Buddhism

    I'm curious as to what this denomination of Buddhism actually IS. Whenever any Buddhist is listing the schools of Buddhism, I never hear about this one. I only hear about it completely independantly, and it is never compared to any other denominations, and so leaves out what i really want to...

    Gay Marriage

    Yes, juantoo, a daresay we can still be friends! Yay! And thanks for clearing up some things Archangel. That theory seems much more valid to me now, even a little bit intriguing. :)

    If you are wrong, do you go to hell?

    If you are right, then according to Christian teachings, having rejected Christ, I will most certainly go to hell. *crosses fingers* However, if YOU are wrong, then where you end up depends entirely on who is right, and the beliefs are extremely diverse. If Islam is correct, then I THINK you...

    When considering getting married, I ask myself: Is this REALLY the man I want my children to spend their weekends with?

    Hello all

    Thanks again for the welcome. It is much appreciated. :) Susma, you nailed it! Though breaking down the title of the religion is probably not going to get you a very good sense of what it is. Unitarianism and Universalism were two liberal Christian denominations that opposed Orthodox...

    Gay Marriage

    I would like to clarify. Homosexuality is not a lifestyle choice. It is something a person has no control over. Perhaps homosexual ACTS are a lifestyle choice, but being homosexual is not. I'm gay, and my lifestyle is no different than that of my heterosexual sister. I do agree, however, that...

    Gay Marriage

    I think I agree, for the most part. :) It's difficult for me to argue with you, but denying marriage to a homosexual couple just doesn't seem unconstitutional to me. The definition of marriage is a union between a man and a woman, so with that definition, denying homosexual couples marriage is...

    Hello all

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I'm trying to be as patient as I possibly can. But you know us hormone-crazy teens. Trying to identify ourselves asap and experience absolutely everything all at once. ;) *sigh* Oh, the foolishness of the young.

    You are wrong: what now?

    For me, it would depend on what the theory actually IS. If it was a theory that I found particularly enlightening, I would probably adapt. If not, however, I would need more than I universal acceptance of a contrary belief to change what I think. Just because something is widely considered to be...

    Hello all

    Hey there. I'm a 16 year old male, and I must say, I feel a bit out of my league in here, but I joined anyway! I'm sure I won't regret it. You all seem really... really... smart... :eek: *ahem* Anyway, to the point. I am a teenager, and religious at heart, but I'm having difficulty finding one...
