Re: How would you control the world population?

I'm adding another idea to this discussion. How about
3D printing? Could it be used to feed people? The technology is advancing rapidly.

Re: Can science be unified?

My belief is yes. At one time, elliptical equations and modular forms were regarded as different mathematical
objects until Andrew Wiles proved them the same which solved Fermat's puzzle (read Fermat's Enigma by Simon Singh). You should also read up on Langland's Program.

Re: It's a sign of the times

When were miniskirts gone? but I think wearing miniskirts is more a matter of the age of the woman than it is related to the stock market. I didn't mean it that way.

Re: Can women judge beauty the same way men do and vice-versa?

In terms of writers, we have Mary Shelley (Frankenstein),
Emily Dickinson and others that come to mind, but for painters and musicians in the classical arts, even to the present day, I can't think of any female examples.

Why this should be, I haven't a clue.

How serious is accidental lying?

Say you lied by accident. Should that be treated the same as deliberate lying?

I think you mean 'genius', which is far more prevalent in males. I can't even think of any female ones off the top of my head.
Not genius (imaginative yes such as MC Escher who created impossible figures).

Re: Can women judge beauty the same way men do and vice-versa?

There seems to be a male dominance in the arts as I indicated which I attribute to male hormones as I don't recall any prominent female artists in painting and music. It seems that women don't have the ability to judge what would interest men and women in music and painting and possibly other areas ...

Absolutely. It would deprive every last human of breathable oxygen and sustainable temperature, amongst other things. Problem solved.
Here on Earth, I don't know about the oxygen part. The temperature part? Yeah I can see that one. :lol:

Can women judge beauty the same way men do and vice-versa?

I don't think so. In the arts, I don't recall running across mention of prominent artists such as Da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Picasso, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart. I'm unable to account for this gender difference. Do you have anything to add?

Would outer space solve overpopulation?

First earth is actually part of outer space so I mean the outer space beyond earth. Would outer space be a solution to earth's overpopulation? We're certainly planning to go to Mars. But eventually wouldn't what's happening on earth just happen elsewhere? Wouldn't it be better in the long run to put...
