earthquakes by cleo on March 3rd, 2010, 1:36 pm
Please remember I am a newbie......

My question is: what is the effect of removing billions of crude oil from the earth's inner sanctum?
what supports the surface? why not an implosion? and why are earthquakes not the result in plates shifting?

my other simplistic ? when you open an outside door, does the heated inside air leave or does the cold air enter.........I have a debate going on with this..............cold air I know comes in thru wall outlets.but what is the answer?

David Wiggins - A Sensible Subjectivism? by Zin5ki on April 24th, 2011, 10:18 am
From Foundations of ethics: an anthology. Ed. Russ Shafer-Landau and Terence Cuneo. Oxford: Blackwell Publishing, 2007. 145-156.

I shall firstly outline the merits of Wiggins' contributions. In recognition of the failure of subjectivism to provide an analysis of what it means to say 'x is good', owing to the fact that citing such things as sentiments of approbation does not answer this question without introducing circularity through implicitly identifying such sentiments by their association to the thought that x is good, an enlightening clarification is provided. His account of the goal of subjectivism with regards to value is, or at least traditionally has been not to provide a definition of what 'good' is, but instead to provide a commentary of what, when holding x to be good, we are actually doing.
Chiefly they (subjectivists) have wanted to persuade us that, when we...

Atheism vs. Agnosticism by Sisyphus on December 20th, 2009, 3:59 pm

Austin Cline wrote:Atheism vs. Agnosticism
What's the Difference? Are they Alternatives to Each Other?

If atheism is just disbelief in gods, then what is the difference between that and agnosticism?

Many people who adopt the label of agnostic reject the label of atheist — there is a common perception that agnosticism is a more “reasonable” position while atheism is more “dogmatic,” ultimately indistinguishable from theism except in the details. This is not a valid position to adopt because it misrepresents or misunderstands everything involved: atheism, theism, agnosticism, and the nature of belief itself. It also happens to reinforce popular prejudice against atheists.

Prejudice Against Atheism, Atheists

Agnostics may sincerely...

The End Of Peace -1914 by airth10 on February 12th, 2014, 3:18 pm
Margaret MacMillan, author of the block buster book Paris 1919, has come out with a new book, The War That Ended Peace. It Is about the first world war, which ended the peace that had endured through most of the nineteenth century and into the beginning of the twentieth century. However, I'm wondering how peaceful were things in the world if it ended in a world war?

One of McMillan's arguments is that WWI was not necessarily inevitable, that it didn't have to happen. Well, I don't think it was a random event or an accident. It happened for a reason. The world, especially Europe, had reached a tipping point centered around issues that nations were incapable of addressing in a peaceful or political manner. As a result unresolved tensions had built up. The result was a violent confrontation between nations and societies, like that of tectonic plates crashing into each other, releasing tension, eventually causing a seismic event.

Wars are made up of underlying currents like the weather,...
