What is something you strongly believe in?
Posted 8/27/14 , edited 8/31/14
I'll start.

I strongly believe in education. I'm studying to become an (English) teacher, and am going to be going to get my masters, maybe even doctorate in education. I really do think people should learn until the day they die. My father always told/tells me, "The day you stop learning is the day is you keel over and die." It's true. But, I also believe that the education system, especially here in the United States, is currently just a total mess, as is it in a whole lot of other things that'll remain unspoken for now. I think the drop out rates in high school is just way too high, the curriculum is outdated, and the entire education process is way back behind a whole bunch of countries I'd rather not name *cough* Japan *cough*.


I don't think I personally can do much to change all that, but if I do my part that's the best I can do.

We're tenth in the world when it comes to testing, right beside Lithuania, which in my opinion isn't bad. *Source needed.


I strongly believe in enjoying life and being grateful for having existed at all.

How does one not learn? I didn't learn my native language because I wanted to and many people have accidentally learned an L2 without really wanting to. Deliberate learning is a small amount of the learning you do IMO.

Japan is a very advanced country but their job system is behind as fk like 1900s America lol.

I too think the education system needs a complete overhaul. I'm not sure I believe in anything really strongly, or I avoid believing in something strongly. Maybe the need for less humans in the world.

Are we supposed to be talking about things we believe in like rationally? Like i strongly believe that pure evil is in dominant control of our planet.......... Like not everything is evil but why is the economic gap so high? Why is there a race section on a job application if it has "no effect?" Why does big business trample Mom&Pop local businesses? Why the heck do i pass 4 McDonald restaurants on my way to school, Yet there are no jobs?

I'm not one of those "Anarchists" even if it sounds like that's what i'm saying, but i do feel like Our planet as a whole is 2 faced. The rich people that eat off of the golden plates where they get to make enough money to go to school for there Masters/Doctorates and then turn a blind eye to all the poor and suffering people of the world that can't even find jobs to feed there families. But Our planet isn't gonna last forever, and all the money in the world won't matter at that point......... When did i turn into such a anarchist :p lol

I applaud you figuring out the injustice of the world. Question is when will the workers figure out it's time to knock the rich down a notch.

I believe in research and education, done in the proper ways, with real and unbiased sources. Specifically, I believe in science, and more specifically I believe in biological sciences. I am a heavy proponent of vaccines due to their near infinite contributions to society in the past 150 years. I also believe that if allowed, stem cell research will one day help us reduce cancer and other disease, and afford us many more safe and effective treatments when said illnesses happen.

I strongly believe that you can never go wrong in overstating the depths of human stupidity.
I strongly believe that Murphy was an optimist.
I strongly believe that 90% of the people in the world is good. It's just the other 10% we hear about.
I strongly believe that the pun is the greatest form of humour because everybody knows a good pun is its own reword.
I strongly believe in not worrying about the big things you can't change. Worry about the things you can change.

I strongly believe that if you can't take people taking the piss out of you, you shouldn't do the same back. I also believe kids under a certain age should be banned from certain restaurants. It's so annoying when you go out for a meal, only for a screaming kid and inept parents who don't give a shit to ruin everything.
