Drugs Debate "Junk yields a basic formula of "evil" virus: *The Algebra of Need*. The face of "evil" is always the face of total need. A dope fiend is a man in total need of dope.

Dyslexia
Dyslexia By: pat_moras E-mail: pat_moras@hotmail.com The hardest thing a child or an adult can ever experience, which happens to be a fact is to be labeled by society as an � ILLITERATE�.

Does God Exist
Does God Exist What is God? Who is God? Why do some people conclude that a God exists? Saint Thomas Aquinas goes from the fact that there must be a first efficient cause to the conclusion that God is that cause.

Matter is the substance that any physical object is composed of. Matter is closed and finite, with n...
