Mr. Monson received a Christian revisionist tract that is currently making the rounds in Christian news groups and email forwarding databases. It was written anonymously (which should be cause for concern in and of itself) and it seeks as its goal to attack the very foundations of our Constitution by way of a Christian-based revision of history, to include changing the very convictions of our founding fathers, in order to convince the targeted audience (i.e., already believing Christians) that the United States is a "Christian nation," founded by Christians, for Christians!Added "The Proposal " by Brandon Seger to the Agora section of the Kiosk.

March 10, 2002Added "Influence of the Idea of God on Human Thought" by Mohammad Akram Gill to the Agora section of the Kiosk.
The influence of the idea of God on human thought is so pervasive that hardly any sphere of man's intellectual activity is free from it. So much so that even the scientists who deal with physical facts, their observation and measurement, and correlation and interpretation are also directly or indirectly affected by it in spite of the fact that their profession, 'science', has little room for speculation about a super-natural entity.
