Great Posts and Interesting Discussions

last update 11/15/98

Discussions in cover a wide range of topics.  I've decided to put some of the more interesting ones here.  I'm not going to post every article on a certain topic, just enough of them to give an adequate overview of the various thoughts/opinions out there.  As this is my own website, my personal opinions and biases are going to be prominent.  I plan to post some views that oppose my own if they seem like truly viable alternatives, but some people's comments directly oppose statements in the books themselves, and I therefore find them quite silly!

Original posts may be snipped for conciseness, and edited for grammar.

I may add more and more to this page as I have the time and inclination...
