This is a well thought out position, even if you disagree. I just want to point out that emotions are required by evolution;. That's why we have them.

They each have their uses in language (I prefer short, but long can communicate more).

Re: What's your philosophical quirk?

WE all have a quirk here on this board. A philosophical quirk. Or a personality quirk. Or a quirk. There are two types of quirks: One you recognize in yourself as a quirk, and one you take deadly seriously, and others recognize instantly that it's your own quirk. If we made this thread to speak of ...

Re: Global warming is NOT a science

BTW the oldest known asteriod (via verified evidence (satilite views)) hit was a "Biggen" - 50 mile wide? - hit South Africa 3.5 billion yrs ago - huge rock to still be seen today on surface. How about Theia impact? That was about 80 times wider and maybe over a billion years older than Biggen, and...

Patton https://youtu.be/YrtS2_TfbeYAetixintro George C Scott is amazing in this movie. I agree, buy at the end of the day, he fails to go that final step into portraying Patton as the idiot that he was. Patton wanted to press on to Moscow. The world would have been a different place if he had done ...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

Treat yourself. Buy the DVD. Less than two quid. The scent of a woman is great. I won't pay for that, I don't need it to feel great with myself. Well Al Pacino's hammy acting and ugly voice certainly aren't to everyone's taste. stick with Serpico, or Dog Day Afternoon. he goes from good to horrible...
