                                              Pray for technology 😀
                                              Technology and science are brothers and sisters made by scientists. Scientist do not believe in something too work. They collect proof to let it work. If he will pray for technology to his imaginary father. Scientists will think for the ones who stop thinking and trough their faith in a book of pure nonsense.

                                                  I know 3 young adults who have a Pituitary Adenoma (brain tumor that tends to press on the optic nerve). I also know a preschool aged baby with multiple brain tumors. Just a few years ago I never knew anyone with a brain tumor. I didn't even know anyone who knew anyone with a brain tumor. And now this seems to be the new normal. Well it's not normal!!! We need to learn what is happening and why.
