CM is an alternative operating system, to replace the one pre-installed on your smart phones and tablets. If you've got an older device that isn't getting updates anymore, or if your device seems unusually slow, or maybe you're sick of spyware, adware, and other unwanted garbage on your phone that ...

Re: Why is it so difficult to leave religion?

Why is it so difficult to leave religion? Butting in with everybody's kind permission; religions are so old and equally powerful with respect to institutionalization and there's also rituals.

Excellent clip Nermin. 8) It also raises the interesting question of what different societies thought processes and views are concerning ( each other ) across the planet. What the levels of wealth and poverty distribution are one thing; and the political, cultural, and religious points of view are ...

Butting in with your permission. I thought all about this while watching the Story of Pi and decided that Hinduism is 'more than a religion'. You should have heard before the story of the boy going to a church and doing all that was required to become a Christian. But then, he returns to his Mandir ...
