What if the Soul existed by shushi_boi on March 13th, 2014, 12:58 am
I know that many areas of study such as psychology, neuroscience, ethics, philosophy, etc. are divided among the areas of science and social science. Science and the scientific method tries to eliminate human error/biases and it is based on a descriptive approach of trying to understand the 'irrational' world where value doesn't objectively exist. (through the lens of a subjective mind trying to be objective)

Social sciences, such as the study of law, economics, philosophy, ethics, etc. make claims that these human based fields aren't relativistic and are in nature objective.

(example william lane craig (a philosopher) claims that objective moral duties exist, a notion against Michael Ruse, (an evolutionary naturalist, one who believes humans are materialistic byproducts) who stated - "Morality is a biological adaptation no less than are hands and feet and teeth. Considered as a rationally justifiable set of claims about an 'objective something', ethics is illusory. I appreciate...

horoscope omens in canopic jars by Char0n on July 20th, 2014, 1:11 am
when the night is hot... being cool is a quality of time... some have it... that sense of security that installs the time on your vcr... just by shooting from the hip... like a desperado ok ... ... i mean who needs a tin star... but the manifest destiny bums... and maybe providence...after all that way to perdition needs an antithesis if it is to have any credit at all...
some say it can only alienate us from our environment further... to hope for a future... with a recursive groth rate or some enigma wrapped in a riddly wrapped in a mystery wrapped in plain sight... wrapped in gift wrapper wrapped in a ribbon and tagged to us personally... like a christmas present fallen behind the tree that no one found for something like 17 years....
something tells me that when i hear it said that nasa or some space agency claims that inside of 20 years we won't be alone... kind of like a clock tracking the volume of universe it takes life to discover itself in... some formula for green wavelength light...

'Mud and chaos at island music festival.." by toucana on June 23rd, 2012, 1:14 pm
Reports of gridlocked traffic and mud bound chaos at this weekend's festival on the Isle of Wight invoke happy childhood memories for me. My mother's family came from Newport Isle of Wight, and we spent all our childhood summer holidays there with our extended family and grandparents back in the 1960s.

The Isle of Wight is a tiny rhombus shaped patch of land just 23 miles wide and 12 miles deep located off the south coast of England. It has always been the very first port of call for any sea-borne invaders of our shores, including the Romans who called it Vectis, yet it has also ever been a traditional sleepy hollow. They say that the clocks go back twenty years when you step off the ferry at Cowes.

Between 1968 and 1970 the Isle of Wight improbably played host to three of the most famous rock music festivals ever held in England, and I watched all of them unfurling at a distance from the perspective of a local child, rather than as an invading 'grockle'. Many...

Muhammad during Battles by Hendrick Laursen on September 2nd, 2014, 3:46 pm
There are many things to be discussed, but I prefer to start discussing with prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) War Behaviors and Moralities. Note that as I’m quoting from Arabic reference books, some of these names might be written in another spelling in other English books or websites. I'm writing nothing from myself, it's all the result of my 10-hours study from Reliable Islamic reference history books. I'll cite as I write. You can search all the keywords in Wikipedia, for further studying.
Muhammad’s amnesty, forgiving and mercy on his enemies are somehow stunning as follows:

1) In the Battle of Hunayn, not only he forgave the majority of his adversary forces, he returned back their goods (taken during the war) and freed their captives, he forgave Malik bin 'Awf, the head of the Hawazin tribe, and gave him 100 camels –while he was still infidel.
After Malik accepted Islam, Muhammad appointed him as the head of the Muslims of Hawazin and Bani-Sa’ad tribes, who were – as Ibn- Hisham writes – ov...

Class by VoudonLipstick on March 12th, 2011, 1:50 am
I just signed up for a class the last week. My first was this past Wednesday, I'm not too happy with the teacher. I ask alot of questions and every time she would say "we'll go over that" and just kind of blew it off. In college I had amazing teachers. I guess I was spoiled and not all teachers are that way. Kind of disappointed and there was alot of hippies and like stereotypical frat guys. Didn't bother me so much, I sat in the front in the middle, the chairs were set up a strange way so they weren't in rows they were in a line. I was wearing skinny jeans, my hair was done and in big waves, a black tank top, my Dolce jacket because I had just gotten off work and dark pink lipstick. Nobody sat next to me and every seat was filled except the two on both sides of me and there were some people that even sat on the floor. Why do you think that is? Am I intimidating? I've been told that before and I don't like that. I wish people wouldn't care and just be friendly. I'm a pretty friendly...
