Re: What is the character of a woman?

I have stumbled upon an answer to the difference between the genders. Men are not, generally speaking, concerned with long-term growth as much as with immediate results. Long-term potential of a human life seems less important to men than the direct root. The distance between point A and B is, for ...

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

_______ Now I realize that there aren’t many Christians or Muslims participating in this forum, nevertheless, perhaps some lurkers might chime in. The question I am going to pose by way of a thought experiment is primarily based on the Christian belief that many (indeed, most) humans are going to e...

Re: Are You Enjoying You Life?

Is wisdom not the foundation of philosophy rather than happiness ? Is the purpose of wisdom to achieve suffering and death, or joy and life? neither, Wisdom's sole goal is self knowledge. for happiness or sorrow. life IS. one deals with it, and after knowing/valuing Wisdom takes the bitter pill wit...
