Re: Before and after: the universe has everything?

Unfortunately, the off-centre non-expanding local cosmic mass is part of the unknown part of the universe. Really... Do you have a link for this one then? Where are you learning these facts? How do you suppose to find a link to what's unknown? Duh... Facts? Are you saying I am quoting facts? Double...

Re: Before and after: the universe has everything?

Phusicists are currently calculating if this mass is off centre of the geometrical centre,or of the point of gravity of our known universe. Are they now? How very pre-Hubble of them. You have a reference for this one? Unfortunately, the off-centre non-expanding local cosmic mass is part of the unkn...

I thought it was Aesop.
Aesop's was a parable. Xeno's was a paradox. They both used the hare and the tortoise in their respective stories.

Re: The tortoise and the hare

This is Zeno's most famous paradox which has a twist. The hare (whose initials are wf) bet the tortoise he can beat him in another race and let the tortoise start with a ten foot lead. The tortoise (whose initials are ak) said let's talk about it first (because he wanted to show off his knowledge o...

Re: Before and after: the universe has everything?

What existed before the Big Bang is not currently known at this point in time though the event itself was simply the beginning of local cosmic expansion and nothing else In fact, off the centre of our own known universe, a bit to the left, but not too far, is a local mass which had no beginning of ...

Re: Before and after: the universe has everything?

Our universe is just a tiny drop in a vast ocean. Hogyaszongya: If that's true, then what is a single human being? Or the Earth? Or the Solar system? Once you start comparing delimeted (finite) amounts to infinite amounts, the analogy breaks down, because a vast ocean is not even a drop of water ag...

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

Democracy = Majority is always right. I am sorry, but this basic premise is dead wrong. It is not true. If you build an argument on it, your argument will be invalid. Now, you could start with "Democracy=Majority always wins." That would be true. The majority believes they are right. This is not ne...

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

No, it is not hypocritical by wanting at least some some semblance or pretence of probity in governance. There is no need for you to incoherently babble against me in what looks like a desperate attempt to justify the idiotic comments you made earlier. Why not just admit that you stuffed up before ...

Re: Who pays for the meal?

I am a problem solver.

If the persona of payer becomes a problem, then I have a solution: take your (I'll take mine, if the problem presents) to dinner to a soup-kitchen.

Nobody pays. Perfect arrangement.

Re: Dear Abby: What do I do with this love poem?

1. Can't read it if our eyes are closed. 2. Poetry can only work (just) if the woman is already in love with you (then women will think any old crap is Shakespeare). 3. If she isn't in love with you then she will assume you are a stalker and possibly phone the police. 1. Your inadequacy is duly not...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

I believe morality is a complex but still biologically built-in mechanism; and it has socially developed acquired features.

Calling it objective or subjective from my point of view is redundant.

The constitution clearly states the requirements to be a POTUS.
Precisely.

Why Greta can't accept that is beyond me. If it's good for the goose, why is she demanding a different code of behaviour for the gander?

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

You can believe what you like, -1-. Feel free to pronounce me a hypocrite or whatever you like based on your imaginings. You fantasies, however, are not relevant. If Clinton tried on what Trump had done of course I would have been just as offput. Tyrannical behaviour is ideally not to be tolerated,...

Re: Dear Abby: What do I do with this love poem?

Write another poem if you think that's going to turn her on. Make sure it's not just another piece of sentimental slop coming out of a greasy soup kitchen. Ninety nine percent of love poems are like that overdosed with saccharine and cholesterol inside a limited vocabulary. (here's the original pie...
