    • I think that it was a good thing to shift your research idea and this new idea is a really interesting topic. I think that religion has played an integral role to politics whether it was evident or not since the beginning of time and this shift away from that is a rather new trend. I think Utah is a great place to research this as well because of the mormon influence in Utah you mentioned. I am very interested in seeing how this is happening in Utah as well as other places.

    • Dear Anthony,:

      I am intrigued by your post about God, “Argumentative Research Essay: “Objective Morality after Darwin (and without God)?”, because I am a strong believer in God. It interests me because of what your argument is. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “She would be able to take a look at her difficult situation and be okay with her decision.” I think this is intriguing because I believe that abortion is the same as murder, except an infant. Another sentence that I read was: “These ‘immoral’ things are what allowed our species to make it so far down the evolutionary chain. ” This stood out for me because I don’t exactly understand how these immoral things helped us make far down the evolutionary chain. I don’t agree with you that God is not real. One reason I say this is because Darwin’s theories have been proven wrong several times.

      For example, https://www.ucg.org/the-good-news/10-ways-darwin-got-it-wrong
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you have very interesting ideas. I wish to see why else you believe there is no God.

    • Anthony, I did a post on stress not too long ago so I can understand your perspective on this topic. you say not thinking is a factor to why you make a bad decision but why don’t you think, is there a scientific reason or emotional, what is it? when I talked about stress i mentioned stress of failing so I totally agree with your comment on taking shortcuts. people want to succeed so bad they’ll do whatever it takes to get it. this link(https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/wired-success/201107/how-deal-best-failure-and-stress) should help you look into that. you also mentioned nature v. nurture so my question is this need to succeed taught or instinctive? can’t wait to hear back.

    • Dear Anthony,
      I am significantly interested in what you had to write about in your article because it is such an obscure topic that isn’t brought up and talked about frequently. It’s interesting to have a desire to know about what happens in the future. One thing that you had said that speaks out to me was when you said, “The amount of technologies and differences that we have today, compared to 50 years ago, are beyond belief.” This is fascinating because I have not really thought about comparing our life now to 50 years ago. It’s deranged to think that we, as people, had developed so much in every capacity of doing anything; technology, science, language, acceptance, etc. This is a topic that has an obligation to be brought up more than it should currently.
