What is the speed of light relative to? Anything you like. The point of special relativity is not that the speed of light is constant, it is that regardless of your inertial frame, you will measure the speed of light in a vacuum as c . But then, wherever there are agents with the means to measure, ...

If a person doesn't own or want to own herself, would it follow that a person shouldn't own herself? No such person exists. ...

Re: What Good Is Your Morality? No Good!

If you say so, but how is what is, "between men," not a, "relationship" between them? I suppose it is: between men, among men...relational So the purpose of morality is to assure a society is a free one. Is that right? yes I have no intention of arguing with your Henry. yeah you do... ;) I really w...

Doctor assisted dying would please most people. the hell you say! Yes, I have seen statistics show most people in favour of doctor assisted dying .
