    People who believe in God also believe in reincarnation like I do but I also believe
    children should not be left in poverty even if their parents remain in poverty because

    parents consider they should be educated to their potential ability even to achieve

    university training and degrees so, those children after being funded will eventually

    help others who are the less well off in society.

    People Who Care.

    Where people care for children they are also potential carers for the elderly

    because patience with old people is important even they can be difficult at time but

    carers are psychologists in their own right providing they have a clear conscience

    then when chatting to elderly people they prick their conscience which helps clear

    their conscience as they relive their memories of the distant past, which

    compliments their long term memory.

    I appreciated your introduction to philosophy and this one is also helpful. Together these show some of the overlap in these fields.

    This was great, thanks, I been tryin to find out about "what is the study of human anatomy called?" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Piayilliam Uncomplex Power – (just google it ) ? It is a good one off product for discovering how to become an expert in human anatomy and physiology minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my partner got cool results with it.
