    One of the problems with theocratic socialism is the dogma that, the meaning of concepts, terms and words must be sufficiently altered or eliminated as not to expose a socialists core beliefs or destructive actions. The actual and in fact definition of "religion" is but one illuminating factor that exposes socialism and other humanistic enclaves for what they are.

    The proof of the Creator is self-evident  the creation bears witness to itself.  We need not to have been present for the act of creation to acknowledge the intelligent design of the human body, plants and animals, even the physical laws and the geometry of mathematics  absolutely ingenious and humbling.  What a pity for those that cannot see it ...
