Well, the increasingly demanding society is always needing people who got the brains to solve problems and be inventive.
Besides, look at the mess we have create for ourselves: Mass deforestation, depletion of ozone layer, global warming, air pollution, presence of nuclear waste, countries...
I agree with Sciart. The accumulation of entropy - like physical damages, little gene mutations, and etc. - leads to death being a neccesary occurence. Although these body cells with defects may be replaced by new cells, this would become unnecessary as the defects accumulates more and more as...
Complete gobble-dooky and nonsensical content - as a matter of fact it is. :grumpy:
Take a look at some of these article's statements which are completely cranky:
Apparently, the author of this article is merely stating known physics terms and juggling them without any empirical basis...
Well, i have observe that fishes do sleep - or at least, the species of the fish that I keep. At night, my fishes would remain motionless at a single spot with their eyes turned pale (Sometimes, they even lie down on their side when their sleep! ).
Cloning might make identification of the each cloned individual difficult. Suppose future identification techninques were based on gene recognition and iris recognition, and they would not differentiate the individual being cloned and the cloned. Other forms of identification techniques must be...
hmmm... what a profound question indeed...
Answer: this question has no answer for they are as profound as you in thinking thank you very much.
My question: What is a... wait a sec... what is the hell a 'stupid question'?
This seems like a good argument against the existence of god anyway.
Insane man has no control over his actions, therefore he is a 'Free man'! :biggrin: He has no restrictions over his thinking. I suppose that's why plenty of genius aren't really normal.
>Insanity could also be caused...
No, i think the definition of 'geek' more close to what the quiz mean is:
- "A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept."
Got a Total Geek ( 25.64103% ) ... I'm surprised! I thought I'm the king of all geeks.
I think the differentce in thinking using diffrent languages lies more in the way of presenting and organising what the speaker/writer wants to convey. For example, in one language, it could be convey in a form of a rhetorical question, and in another language, presented as a statement.
Thx for the quiz. It was nice! Looks like there's plenty of atheists here - I'm one too! Anyway, i think it was the 'question5. Are you afraid of God?' I answered 'I'm not sure he exists'. Isn't that obvious?!
Suppose I store all information related to my consciousness or mind - memory, personality, IQ level, knowledge, and etc. - into a computer (when we've that kind of tecnology, of course). Now this data is equivilant to everything of me. Then I give this computer a body for it to move and excecute...
This is the explanation from website http://eportfolio.babson.edu/2006/rbrennan1/BlackHoles/classifications.htm :
"Hawking speculates that pair creation exists right around the event horizon. During the pair creation, the particle or the antiparticle has the ability to fall within the event...
Alright, I had made some mistake in my explanation for this problem! Sorry... :frown: The truth is that any of the antiparticle pair could enter the black hole or leave the black hole. It is the negative energy from creation of the anti-particle pairs that slowly destroy the matter inside a...
The answer to how much is the gravitational force on the explorer remains unknown until some guy finds out what is the mass of Earth's core.
But now, the main question is: does the layer of Earth and magma which the explorer had climbed through exert a gravitational pull on him? I think I...
I disagree with Drag's view on saying that the force of gravity actually increase when you get closer to the center of the Earth! Drag, you said that "the force of gravity depends on mass devided by distance - radius in this case, square (second power)", and you also wrote this:
"So you when...
Well, according to Mister Stephen Hawking, black holes can evaporate and can losing their mass until they diasppear. This is explained either by the fact that they (the black holes) have temperature, or that the anti-particles I mentioned annihilate the matter of the Singularity gradually...
My friend had asked me one puzzling and 'paradoxing' question on gravity:
Suppose one were to go really deep underground until he or she is only a few kilometres from the centre of the Earth (provided that he or she wears super antiheat suits). As the point of attraction of gravity is at...
One of my friend had asked me one question which I did not really have a good answer for. His question was: Why does the antiparticle counterpart of the virtual antiparticle pairs (those that appear due to uncertainty between time and energy) at the event horizon fall into the black hole...
My friends had asked me a question which I thought was rather troubling and provoking. The problem is that is actually seems to violate the law that states that nothing travels faster than the speed of light. Their question was:
Suppose two planets (planet A and planet B) which are one...
Let's say country X attacks country Y. Then, country Y counters by killing X's people. Is that justice?
Justice: Quality of being righteous. The law.
Revenge: The act of taking retaliation for injuries or wrongs.
Justice can also being 'an eye for an eye' like...
Illusion = unreal / non-existent / virtual
Illusion = things of non-existence PERCEIVED by a conscious being
Real = truly exists / the ultimate / pure / the greater illusion Iachus mention
Real has no beginning nor ending
I have never seen you guys here, so are...
The death sentence as a punishment. Should it exist?
I think it serves more like a warning to others than a punishment to the criminals - you do this, you die. The problem here is that, is it necessary? Should chance be given?
Ok, here's my more 'formalized' definitions of each terms :wink: :
Lazy = not wanting to think or act
Not wanting to walk the stairs (X) = Lazy
Not wanting to invent (Y) = Lazy
X leds to Y, but if that person is really lazy, there won't be Y!
Alright, it's definitely okay to
show your appreciation by giving
someone a reward. But don't make it
seem too controlling or manipulating.
That's all I want to say!
For example: It's better to
pay good employees extra salary
or praise them while showing geniune appreciation...
For me, the ideal education must have the
Room for students to express their creativity
No more prejudices & lack of co-operating
by eliminating class academic rankings.
Less control= no more "sucking up" to higher authority &
more independence. (Pls read my...
Should we eat meat?
Nowadays, you can see lots of people trying
to save certain animals from being mistreated, like
protecting the sharks or whales from being
But I can't see the diference between
eating a steak and killing a shark.
Anyway, they are all life forms.
I find time travel an indeed very stupid idea
because, wouldn't your memory of what you have perceived
now and in the past flow back to the
surroundings through your five senses
when you travel to the past?!
So you would not even know that you had traveled
back in time becasue you...
Yeap, the "sexiest" person to be in life is yourself! Hehehe!
That's why the happiest people on Earth
are geniuses & idiots(HONESTLY, no offence!)
becasue they can do whatever they want to!
We have always been told consciously or unconscious
that we shouldn't do this or that even if...
Because both of them display similar behaviors.
And they are the ability to:
multiply & spread rapidly
mutate into other forms after some time.
control the behavior of their hosts
You can also call it a bacteria because there are both good and bad bacteria...
Yeap, i agree these are not really
But there are also some techniques for
developing the unborn baby's brain!
For example: Puting a headphone playing Mozart's
music on the mother's stomach and
exposing her stomach to sunlight to cast
shadows with her hands to...
You might have heard of Lucid dreaming.
It means to stay conscious
when you are dreaming and you can
possess whatever abilities you want in it
or do whatever you desired.
I find it very cool but I'm still
figuring out how to be conscious in my dreams.
Does anyone here have any...
The Earth will still stick to the Sun and the solar system will also stick to the Milky Way. (until the day the Sun dies)
And due to the Big Bang Expansion, The Milky Way is heading outwards with other galaxy.
