Being older, 63, and having seen many changes occur in my life, I can tell you the conservative way of life works much better with more happiness associated with it than any other way of life.
How can you really believe the bid bang theroy? Have you ever seen an explosion? It causes a big mess, it does not produce a beautifully orginized, delicately balanced, and well developed life structure as we enjoy on planet earth.
Life does start at conception and people produce other people not any lessor life force. If you reduce the importance of anyone's life you reduce the importance of all life. If the unborn children do not count, who is next? Crippled, older, less intellegent, someone who is not of your race, or just someone you are particularly mad at in this present moment. No human being is safe from that form of thinking.
If evolution was really true, we should be seeing new forms of animals and people evolving even today. This planet and our life support system is so intricately balanced and precisely formed down to the smallest atom, it should make you realize whoever made it must be watching over it and must be so much more intelligent than we are.
If there are no consequences for our actions then there is no social structure only chaos. Spanking is a good form of correction for a child if done right with love and explination. Children are good, their actions may be bad for many reasons.
Oh, by the way, most Scientists are conservatives. Teachers on the other hand, particularly college level, mostly hold a liberal view point. Take time to see the results of some of the beliefs that your teachers and classmates are advocating. With every action we take there is a reaction. Take time to findout what the long term results are for the choices you are thinking about making. You may change your mind about things.
