Philosophy forum closing

  1. Oct 8, 2012 #1
    The Philosophy forum will be closing in one week, Monday the 15th. All threads will be closed and merged into General Discussion. The reason is that the Philosophy forum over the past couple years has been almost impossible to moderate fairly and two out of three threads end up locked. Please finish up any discussion you have there. Thanks for your understanding.

    It's something that is long overdue and will be best for PF. No active forum members post there except as an exception. The majority of members have asked why it is there. It's just not something that we can keep within the scientific guidelines of the forum.

    Nonsense, you can tell from Evo's post that she is absolutely heartbroken over the closure of the Philosophy Forum. There, there, girl. Have a cookie and some juice. *Hands Evo a cookie and some juice*

    Et tu jt?? Evo Child stopped by the other day with a bag of Cheetos. I *LOVE* Cheetos, fried though, she had baked, so it was less painful. If you're going to sin, go all the way, get fried.

    They do fry things just to see if they can be fried, the worst had to be the stick of fried butter.

    But can we be sure kittens really exist? I propose they are simply shadows of a true quantum reality!

    Oh come on. Kittens exist, you just can't tell if they are alive when sleeping or in a box.
