Its really too bad, honestly. The scientific method is a fantastic piece of philosophy. The issue being, like always, that we tend to think the world

I certainly hold nothing but good thoughts about folks like GUT though. Someone like him exemplifies the idea that our approach can make all the

Definitely check out Natsume Yuujinchou! I don't know of another series that is able to combine action, humor, and genuine heartfelt scenes in such a

I'm also convinced that plants an fauna have intelligence and sentience. Its just so far removed from ours that its incomprehensible and totally
