Articles on new technology, crime, influences caused by religion or non-religion groups, and other subjects can create great topics. Even covering the issues with the gay/lesbian/transgender issues can be good topics.

  • Older researches
  • When Professor Langdon Gilkey coined the phrase “There are three truths; what we have accepted, what we do accept, and what we will accept” is a key to science. Meaning that this explains why no research will ever be complete and always will need redone. What we knew and accepted fifty years ago, is not what we know and accept today. So new papers explaining the differences based on new information will always be needed. Looking in the library can find some older out of date researches that could use a fresh go over.
