Is cloning = reincarnation?

We're at the point where a human being can be cloned.
It raises issues such as a way to cheat death (if a violent criminal killed someone who can be restored to life, what should we do with the criminal?)

Your thoughts please.

Does intelligent alien life exist?

If so, where? Every day I see new articles, both pro- and anti-alien.

What do you think about this?

Is it politically correct to say ______?

A handbook on political correctness would be useless due to the multiplicity of examples and the fluidity as new ex...

Family Feud's best host?

There are three that stand out. First we have Richard Dawson. He was witty, charming and knowledgeable. He was nicknamed "The Kissing Bandit" and is my favorite. Next we have Ray Combs.

Why does math have applications to the real world?

What is a good substitute for sex (including masturbation)?

Re: Paradox?

The last time I checked, Euclidean geometry was regarded as the best model for our universe which suggests it is the best candidate for reality. So do you propose to divorce Euclidean geometry from physics or wed it? Or do you have a better model? So you agree that geometry is a model of the world ...

Re: Paradox?

Based on this article, I don't see why there's such a strong desire to separate math from physics:
