I only learnt advanced Math to help me think in a certain way (I like physics and I program applications on a computer). Training your brain to think in a logical manner is very useful application in my opinion and is a highly transferable skill.
How about something along the lines of an old Bagatelle type game?
It would be easy to make.
A piece of plywood with small nails hammered partly the way through it.
A number of small balls
Numbered slots at the bottom for the ball to drop into.
You could have theme games like playing...
It may be a solution just to let them kill each other.
I know it sounds a bit callus but if the hatred is insurmountable (neither side willing to accommodate the other for any reason) then what other choices are available?
If the UN or any other country thinks it has a right to intervine...
What are the main contentions between Sunni's and Shiites? Is it similar to the problems between Protestants and Catholics? Some stupid differences in interperating a religious text?
If it is then I've got no sympathy for them because I've have no tolorance for that kind of stupidity.
This isn't just from your statement. I've heard similar claims and I've wondered about it for years.
I suspected it was because the explaination of matter falling into a BH was oversimplified to a high degree. I wasn't suggesting that matter doesn't enter the BH just that if the matter appeared...
This has always seemed flawed to me. If any matter that enters a BH would appear stationary at the horizon then surely, with the amount of matter that has previously fallen in, the BH would seize to be 'black' as it would appear to have a 'coating'/'shell' surrounding it.
When I disagree with someone it is usually because I've thought long and hard about something and then drew my possible conclusions. If someone has come to a different conclusion I sometimes think that they obviously haven't thought things through in the degree that I have. This is obviously...
SpaceTiger's explaination covers a lot of ground and applies to most people (if not all).
I get misunderstood all the time it seems.
Mainly because the chain:
1) What I want to say
2) What I actually say
3) What the other person thinks I said
4) How the person interperates what...
