    Where Theories come from

    I think they can also be from logic. Some theories cant be correctly formed based off of observations. It is like before Gregor Mendel discovered genetics, people beleived inb spontaneous creation, where things like tadpoles were born from the water, bugs were born from the Earth, stuff like...

    Is assassination better than terrorism?

    I think they are both really just political methods. Assassination is to take out someone running the government. Although it involves less death and it is more effective then terrorism, so I guess in that sense it is morally better, when it boils down to things, terrorism is just to sway the...

    Peak Oil Crisis Has Arrived

    lol, they dont, they just guess and assume they are always right and have no chance of being wrong. If they say the world will end tommarrow then it must be so! :grumpy: :rofl: :bugeye:

    Why does one fear death?

    Well, because all organisms have a will to live, and not just people, I do not beleive that it is an emotional matter, or a matter of fear. It quite possibly be broken down to evolution. If an organism does not have the will to live, it will perish. If it perishes, then those that did not...

    Why do some people die, while others dont?

    Well, although I am an athiest, I would have to say that this type of thing was covered in the book of Job in the Bible, yes? If there is a god, then you are probably needed to be subjected to trials and tribulations in life, as a test of your faith usually. If you are faithful, then you will...

    Morality and Cheating in School

    I would say it is ok in high school, cause if you screw up there your life is pretty much ruined. But college is something you pay for. Therefore, because you pay for that, and is you fail you can just try again, cheating is unexcusable. But high school, it isnt about being honest, it is...

    Let a thousand guilty men go to save 1 innocent person

    Murder perhaps, but this question didnt really specify murder, did it? I forget, I just thought it was just some serious crime. Since it was hypothetical, I didnt consider passion or not, but practically, I believe you are correct.

    Science, another faith system ?

    lol, although I think you have a point, I can see loseyourname's concern. I had a forum (still do, but I have a serious lack of membership) and have of the members were idiots that called people dumb***es for disagreeing with them. Then when I talked to them about it, they were all like, "I...

    Is it hypocritical?

    The difference their is killing innocent people vs killing people that want to kill other innocent people. Pro-life may be a little bit of a propagandous term, but that view was a little extremist. I think it is simply a matter of what Bort said. Society is full of hypocritical ideas and...

    Ignorance IS bliss?

    I loved that book. I read it twice....>.< But at least I was able to understand it perfectly. But I disagree that this type of society is good. It creates a system that people have no choice or opinion. People lose their humanity. You may as well be a plant, and do the same thing day in...

    Let a thousand guilty men go to save 1 innocent person

    And the government is their deterent. That is why I dont buy that it is proven that the government is not an effective deterant. The government makes the laws and the punishment, thus, the government stops people from stealing and such.

    Why was eating pork taboo in many cultures?

    yes, I know. But pork was like the worst as I understood it. Plus, I would imagine there is a reason that people eat fish and red meat pretty darn close to raw, but not pork. I would say chicken, but perhaps in Moses's time, samonella wasnt a big concern. Plus, that is bacterial, not parasitic.

    Let a thousand guilty men go to save 1 innocent person

    If it is just 1:1, then it would change the dynamics of it. That murderer may not neccessarily kill again. So most people would save the innocent man.

    Let a thousand guilty men go to save 1 innocent person

    lol, well, no offense, but I dont buy that. Because everytime someone steals something, they plan it to where they dont get caught for a reason. It is because they fear being caught. I am not entirely sure, but I very well might take petty stuff from stores if I was hungry one day and I...

    Why was eating pork taboo in many cultures?

    I think that it was a combination of various things. If they didnt cook it perfectly, pork is crawling with parasites raw, so it would cause alot of disease. Also, it poisoned the water, like what was said, and water was scarce. So the best the Jews could come up with is that it was a...
