If you have an article, video or image to contribute to this section, please get in contact. Remember, we are non-religious, nonpartisan and support no-one, except those who aim to bring truth to everyone, so we can't accept anything with a bias. Real life examples are most welcome.

Sometimes science cannot comment on, explain or quantify the topic you have information for. We need that type of article, video etc too.
