If Hitler is dead and Mozart is dead it's the same?
Exactly so! Even if you compare Hitler to St. Francis or Jesus himself; dead means dead as if you were never alive in the first place. Nature doesn't owe you more than what you had...and to be precise, didn't even owe you that much.

Nobody knows." - Neil deGrasse Tyson That would imply that those of us who know nothing would know as much as he does. In fact, I'm in a superior position to NdeGT ...

Thanks...and: good luck to you in them greener pastures.
The world now being what it is and what we've made of it hosting billions, there are hardly any green pastures left or the life that used to roam on it.

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

If you want to carry it forward then why not start your own thread instead of doing it in someone else's. You're just repeating yourself, going in circles.

Good luck! Maybe you'll still get a whole set of new responses each time you ask the same three questions.

What, cuz you're done with the thread no one else should have a chance to pipe up with their view? If you're done, move on to greener pastures and leave this old patch of dirt be.

What a pregnant woman carries:

Is it a person?

When does it become a person?

If it's a person, shouldn't it be accorded the same consideration as any other person?

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

Excellent post in which the reality of the situation is well described which means excluding all the sentimental, supercilious claptrap regarding fetuses and humans who aren't human yet. This part is especially true... You are an animal. We are all animals. Foetuses are not people, full stop. In fac...

Re: Poetry here.

yep! but of course - to be pedantic - that is not Adagio for Strings, its the coral version - the title i do not know forgetting and not knowing latin. From YT...

Re: Poetry here.

BTW the best "song" ever given to mankind to date (IMO) - is Samuel Barber's Adigio for Strings/and the related choral work (they sing about God in latin - not that i understood what they were saying), cought up in the melody of the chorus/ which was same as the instrumental version melody wise.

How does he do that, though? The same way he learns and discovers everything else. He uses is mind. How? What path does his mind follow, in order to show him "how to live," as you put it? In your case, this question is totally appropriate since you only know of ONE path. What other path can there b...

Re: Free Will-debate settled

Read what's written in nature. Free Will is the easiest of all problems to solve even that which refers to its limitations. You're free to discover (if you have the ability) and you're free to use those discoveries in whatever way for enhancement or an early demise. What you are not free to do is ch...
