The biggest question so many of us have in life, one that we have been seeking to answer for years: what happens when we die?
Even modern day science seeks to answer this question. Where does human consciousness come from and what is its origin?

Even China has phased out the use of paraquat. In 2012, the Chinese government announced that the pesticide would no longer be used in order to “safeguard people’s lives.” China is not a nation that is recognized for its environmental protection policies. If they’re concerned about this pesticide, it stands to reason we should be too. Continue reading

Many Americans of all political stripes were upset that President Barack Obama issued a commutation of the prison sentence of Army Pvt. Bradley/Chelsea Manning, who had been convicted of stealing and leaking hundreds of thousands of classified military documents.
