If not, let us tell you a little about it:

People are smart. In general, I think people are smarter than even they think they are. All of us know things. We also all believe things. Sometimes there is a huge difference between the two. We believe some things that we do not know for sure. Sometimes the things we know don't fit with what we believe. I think it makes sense to make sure the two are as close a fit as possible.

Have you ever had someone come up to you and tell you that something you believe is totally wrong? Of course, you are offended. But, then the person shows you proof that they are right! Now, what? Do you ignore them and go your way? Then this is not the site for you.

This site presents questions to see what people think on various subjects. We generally focus on those area that are "taboo" in public discussion - religion and politics. If you want to join in, just think about the question and send us your thoughts to gjohnsonjr@promisesandsecrets.com.

Of course, the opinions expressed in this site are those of the author and of those who send in their thoughts. While we will gladly publish any dissenting opinion, with few exceptions, it must be coherent and publicly presentable. For example, we do not intend to publish profanity, argue whether rocks have feelings, whether God is black, white, yellow, brown, red, or blue..., well, you get the point. However, if we decide not to print your topic of discussion, we will publish the name of the topic and state our reasons for censoring. If enough responses say that others want to cover it, then it becomes fair territory as long as it is coherent and publicly presentable.
