Re: Six degrees of DEATH!

The mourning of the dead prompts a person to burn himself(to death) but this burns another twelve people, who die.

Re: How do people become monsters?

I will assume all social norms exist, like morality is well-defined. I think people become monsters largely by their environment. If nobody taught X what is commonly taken as right or wrong, if he did not learn it himself, he is likely to go astray. X could, perhaps with testosterone(Not a Bio exper...

Re: End of humanity.

It has to be next thursday! Because you gave the option.

Anyway, 2012 is just a baktun, so that is unlikely.

A nuclear war is likely in next 100 years *Looks at Dee Pee arr! Kay*

So that's my 'answer': 100 years?

Re: Does Determinism necessitate moral nihilism?[Philosophy]

1, 2, 3 and 4. Agreeing with (1) and (2). On (3) I do not agree being conscious is major. "Its Actions" do not hold that much meaning to me. Rather, "Events" hold more meaning like "The table broke." So I am more for a Universal point of view. As for (4), if you can't ...

Re: Does Determinism necessitate moral nihilism?[Philosophy]

The funny thing, to me, is that free will supposedly means the ability to choose any action at all, within the realms of physical capability; and yet, if a person strays too far from ordinary, typical, predictable behavior, we pronounce that person mentally ill and consider her not to be in control...

Re: Does Determinism necessitate moral nihilism?[Philosophy]

I think Determinism does necessitate moral nihilism. For me, I believe in Wiki Fatalism, its definition is there. Anyway, the fact is that Free Will has to been absent. You are given no choice of your own to drop the apple or not. Its 1-way simulation, which fakes up your freedom. Keep running the s...

So what relationship do these units of angular momentum have with the intrinsic property of spin, if I'm seeing this correctly? Or it is about one of the Quantum numbers of the Electron?

Re: Traveler's Dilemma

You're certainly correct that there are serious flaws in the argument you just made. The fact that your rational play and your opponent's rational play are identical does not imply that the play with the highest outcome when played against itself is rational. This is the concept that people really ...

Re: Speed of Electricity

So, just to see if I see this correctly: This Electric Wave travels near c and the exact speed depends on the conductor as it travels through the conductor. So if you had like a really long and coiled wire but the actual distance between the bulb and battery is small, the bulb should, in theory, lig...
