How is it going buddy? Are you still working up the nerve to ask out that little haitian number you were telling me about yesterday? You know the one with the visible open and oozing soar (I assure that is normal.... in some places).

Anyway..... to the rest of the forum, I do agree somewhat with the assertion that monopolistic religious regions are restricted in their commerce, but I do not believe in the idea that communism restricts free thinking. I think it may very well place restrictions on peoples views towards their governments in terms of total dedication without dissenst, but not free thinking. Look at the cold war Soviet Union. Lots of science (astronomy, physics, biology, ....) came out of the USSR during the reign of communism partly because there was no religious fundamentalism to impede its growth. No Pat Robertsons or other religious zealots denying scientific evidences to promote their own agendas. I think scientific discovery takes enormous free thinking and critical analysis, just not towards the government.

Just a thought, what do you think?

Scott
