I like your site.

I like your site, I agree with a lot of the things you said, you're very logical. I especially liked your article on conforming with normal ideas. I think it's stupid how people always agree with the general opinion. It's pretty ironic that there are people who disagree with normal ideas. They disagree just to be rebels, but in doing so they're just as controlled by it as the normal people! I always think about things very logically, with little bias. I did notice quite a bit of bias, though. Especially the common references to Satanism. And saying that "some people have otherworldly superstitious ideas" and that sort of thing. I'm not exactly the most religious person, and I don't know anything about Satanism, but the bias is pretty clear.(I'm agnostic, by the way. For creationism, where did God come from? "He's always been there" doesn't explain anything. And for evolution, where did the very first little cell come from? A bunch of atoms didn't just randomly fall in the right place and spring to life.) I still haven't finished reading through it yet. Man, I've been thinking a lot of the things on this site for quite some time now. Normal people, though I like them, sort of frustrate me sometimes. I also really liked your page on opposites. I always break down sayings like that. For instance, "I could care less" means you have to actually care at least a little bit! And if it "goes without saying" then you don't need to say "it goes without saying." Those are just a couple. When I try to tell other people about this stuff, they just pretty much ignore it. I have never went into this stuff as in-depth as you did, though. Keep writing, I'll keep reading!
