Re: This is True Conservatism

That's Conservatism for you, right there! Conservatives are monsters. Here's the problem for that claim. "Conservative" is not a particular ideology, but rather an answer to the question, "How do things need to be changed?" Conservatism's answer is "Slowly and carefully, so as to preserve what we h...

Re: Entanglement and Information

Again no, speeding up evolution is one part of it. To give some examples, enzymes in your body, and your ability to smell, are using quantum effects right now (the second one is questionable though). Or look up the European Robin if you want to see quantum entanglement exploited in a living body (p...

Re: Entanglement and Information

Ok, maybe it's not so beside the point. If (big if) there is something to things like twins feeling each other's emotions, or people sensing a loved one's death, then I think it probably works via all this "leaking out", degrees or remnants of entanglement even after "wavefunction collapse", reachi...

Re: Entanglement and Information

"Is measurement/observation and the resulting collapse crucial to have obtained information about a particle's state of entanglement? Or can a particle's uncertainty somehow be measured without collapse?" Start here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entanglement_witness You are going to have to build ...

Re: Entanglement and Information

I think it's because you would need to monitor the particle at the receiver end, in order to be able to determine the time of the collapse. However, monitoring it would also collapse it. Makes sense, as my question regarding the entanglement-information can really be boiled down to this: "Is measur...

Entanglement and Information

Entanglement says that two particles can have their spin properties shared, so when one measures the other, it changes the other in an instant (faster than light). Though according to Bell's No-go-theorem you cannot send information faster than the speed of light. But itsn't the spin-property or an ...

Re: God, Religion and Logic

Why do you want me to assume that this "God thing" is a 'he'? Do you have some bias to the male of a species? Most people refer to "god" as a male-deity, I'm only playing on the terms of "most people". It really doesn't matter to me. Feel free to replace "he" with "it" if you like. And then why are...

God, Religion and Logic

Assuming God exists, and ignoring the lack of evidence for said deity: If God is almighty, can he make a rock so heavy he cannot carry it? Obviously this is a contradiction and therefore we must assume that Logic is above God, and God is subject to the Rules of Logic. It also answers a lot of the qu...

Re: "Your" Money & Taxation

The low-wage, underpaid factory worker can quit their factory job, start their own factory and compete with their boss. No he can't. Starting your own factory requires lots of money. If you don't have it, you're at the mercy of the banks. And they won't neccessarily lent you money. Even if he succe...

Re: "Your" Money & Taxation

What is meant by "my money" is "I get to keep the value I created". Now we're getting to my point: What about the workers working in factories? They produce the values which the big boss gets all for himself (nearly). The workers are paid low wages in return. That's also known as exploitation of th...

Re: "Your" Money & Taxation

I could be completely wrong but I think that the point being made here is you can not print money. You are literally legally prohibited from making your own money. If I am wrong I would like to be corrected. No, you are totally right. I meant printing money, sorry I couldn't find the right word for...
