What is religion? It is a relationship that affects the way we live our lives every day. The right choice is still available to those who want to find it.

The growing capability to determine physical characteristics from genetics can help the police, but it also raises questions of rights and profiling.

Did forecasters get the snowstorm wrong?
 
Did forecasters get the snowstorm wrong?

While Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey had braced for 30 to 60 centimetres of snow, they got far less than that.
Although much of the East Coast was hammered by a massive winter storm, the dire predictions of huge snowfalls in some areas, including New York City and Philadelphia, failed to materialize, prompting criticism of meteorologists and public officials.

Heads of state sought his talent. The top business leaders and entrepreneurs of his day eagerly desired to work with him.

How is it that George Washington Carver, who was born a slave in southern Missouri and orphaned as an infant, could generate such demand and respect?

War as we know it is indeed an entirely human enterprise.

But what is it in the heart of man that causes this perpetual descent into killing off another part of the species?

Global efforts to fight obesity have been "unacceptably slow" and no one's reversing the trend.

Experts are calling for a worldwide action plan including restrictions on how food aimed at children is marketed.

Anne Frank was a young girl with a vision: to become an author and have a profound effect on the world. The dedication she applied to her vision actually resulted in its realization—possibly beyond her wildest hopes. http://ow.ly/I2MMh

Story
Tagline
In-depth coverage of current social issues. Insights into the philosophical, moral and ethical values in society today—health care, science and environmental news and articles.
Introduction
Vision evaluates the news of the day from a different perspective than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems facing humanity.

Where do you turn for trustworthy information in today’s world of sound bites and sensationalized news? With the average person being bombarded by literally thousands of messages every day from the ever expanding and fragmenting media, how is it possible to sort through the tremendous clutter and make sense of the conflicting voices?

With these questions in mind, the idea of Vision.org was born. We set out to create a Web site that would challenge readers to examine the historical and philosophical origins of today’s issues. Here you will find articles from our quarterly international companion journal Vision as well as other articles, interviews and information that help give direction in a difficult and confusing age.

While Vision.org examines the issues of today, it is not primarily a news site. Instead it seeks to evaluate the news of the day in a more in-depth way than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems with which humanity wrestles. In doing so, we affirm our commitment to accuracy and to honest treatment of the facts of every issue we explore. We are dedicated to presenting the subjects we address in a thorough, objective and balanced way.

But, like every other information or news source, we do have a certain bent. Vision.org brings insight into the complex social, moral and philosophical questions that confront society by examining them through the wisdom of an ancient source, the Bible. We believe that the principles contained in that book are still valid and can be applied to help solve the global, national and personal conflicts we face. But we do not proselytize, nor do we seek to convert anyone to any denomination or religious belief. Our only goal is to reestablish the Bible as a credible voice in the discussion of ideas. We hope you benefit from what you read, hear and see on this site, and we look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
