Sorry if my above post was kinda hard to follow…I type whatever comes…

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why are people still religious?

People are still religious because it has most likely been forced upon them when they were young. They grew up believing in God, Jesus, or Allah, because their parents told them it was so. That little seed of teachings from their parents grew into a tree of religiousness…
The new generation, however, is more atheistic. This, obviously, happens when the above doesn’t happen. Personally, I grew up with the gods that I still pray to, but I do not actually believe in “God”. I believe that what people believe to happen, usually happens, because people usually see what they want to see. There aren’t any miracles to validate the fact that gods cause miracles, and we don’t see any supreme being in the sky watching over us. And if there is a god, it is one that is a compilation of all of our beliefs and hopes and dreams. If not material, then psychological. That god is us.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is There An Undeniably Selfless Act?

Originally posted by Criks:

An utterly selfless act HAS to be against your own will, otherwise you benefit from it due to the fact that you get to to what you want. It cannot either be forced upon you by outside factors because then it wouldnt be your act, it would be whoever forced it upon you. Same reasoning with accidents. If a rock accidentally defuses a bomb, did the rock do a selfless act? No, because dead things cannot do actions. Thus, if a living being accidentally does something, it doesnt count as an act.

Only possible way to loosen this infinite loop, is to let the person do things himself even against his own will. Such as, even if he loves his life dearly, he can rationalize that the right thing to do in the name of humanity, is to sacrefise himself so a greater number of people can live. He cannot give a crap about the people, that they dont deserve it, and he has to believe they will look down on him for doing it, forever hated after doing it. I suppose you can somehow allow this, if you believe a person can actually do such an act.

This reasoning reminded my of the Ender series by Orson Scott Card…

Because for a life form from another solar system to get to ours will take just that long to get here, if not longer. I suppose it technically doesnt break the laws of physics, but it is a lot more unlikely than instant flying pigs.

What if these life forms live extremely long lives, considered normal by their standards, but immortal by ours. It’s highly unlikely that these life forms have a shorter life span than us. Also, these life forms could always just reproduce on their shuttle, thus having a living generation meet us. The life forms could also be put into stasis…there are just so many possibilities…

I do think that somewhere out there life does exist, but I do not think that I am in a position that would justify me to make any statements about their behaviour or level of intelligence. The video: I find it hilarious that people still believe that aliens will by all means come here in spaceships (preferably shaped like a saucer) and use something like electrical light and generally fit the “alien-stereotype” (very intelligent, creepy humanoids). I cannot take these clips serious. They prove nothing.

I’m not saying that I believe in aliens, I just asked the question. I wanted to know people’s opinions. Truthfully though, I believe in intelligent life off of Earth but not like this:

Lol, I love the site name…my sister found it on Facebook, so I went on the site, found the video, and watched it

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is There An Undeniably Selfless Act?

Maybe there was an evil person who had a doomsday device and was planning on killing everybody on the world with it. He wouldn’t die, due to the fact that he was rich enough to buy a private space shuttle from NASA and also fund the first ever settlement on the moon, and he was to be the first person to go there (and the last). He had a sudden change of heart and decided not to kill everyone. Since he made no demands and just wanted to destroy the world he had no motivation. Nobody knew about the plan because he created the device all by himself. In his plan, nobody in outer space would live either, because as the world blew up, so would all of the supplies that the space shuttles and stations already in space needed.
There, I seemed to have created an undeniably selfless act, no matter how unlikely it might be :P
By the way, the settlement was made to be self-sustaining, and he knew that there was nothing faulty with it.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is blood taxation moral?

An easy way to get enough blood is to just kill the death row people by sucking out their blood XD
But that’s besides the point…giving blood should be mandatory. So what if it’s not a donation anymore, how would you like it if you needed blood to live, but there wasn’t enough blood in stock because no one wanted to donate? Also, if donating blood was mandatory, there would be enough blood to give anybody in need of blood get blood immediately. That way, there wouldn’t be any waiting list, and no one could “die” due to waiting.
If it does end up becoming a law, there should be some sort of penalty for not “donating”. If you were impaired or sick, then you are let off, but if you have no alibi, you should have to pay a fine for first offense of not giving blood, a higher fine for the second, and jail time for the third and onwards. Oh, and if you are ineligible, no need to worry. because these laws won’t effect you.
Then again, this is just my opinion, you don’t have to take it seriously…I’m only fourteen :P

Topic: Technical Support / Unity Bugs Masterthread

I HAVE FIXED MINE!!!!
I’M NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE REASON WHY IT WORKED BUT WHATEVER!!!!
IF YOU ARE USING GOOGLE CHROME, TURN ON ANY UNITY BASED GAME AFTER UNINSTALLATION (I used Langman).
YOUR BROWSER MAY OR MAY NOT END UP UNRESPONSIVE. IF SO, WAIT. IT IS GOING TO SAY FLASH PLAYER FAILED. SAY OKAY. THEN, REINSTALL UNITY FROM THE LINK OF THE GAME WHEN THE BOTTOM BAR THING COMES UP, SAVE AND OPEN. BEFORE CONTINUING SHUT OFF YOUR BROWSER. THEN, INSTALL. TURN ON THE SAME GAME, AND THE FLASH PLAYER FAILING THING WILL COME UP AGAIN. SAY OKAY AGAIN. THEN, HOPEFULLY, UNITY AND YOUR GAME WILL LOAD AND YOU CAN PLAY!!!!!!!!

Topic: Technical Support / Unity Bugs Masterthread

I have the same problem as Krate and dark12222000
OS: Windows Vista
Browser: Google Chrome, build unknown
Unusual add-ons: Unknown
Additional details: I had Unity before and the games worked and then they just suddenly didn’t work. Every time I tried playing, it made my browser unresponsive and I had to restart it. I uninstalled it, but when I tried reinstalling it, the installation didn’t work and the same problem as with when I tried playing happened. I also tried reinstalling on IE but it (still) didn’t work.

What do you mean? That image looks flat to me.

Images are 2D so they appear flat. The exact shape of the earth is a slightly oblate spheroid. This is proved due to the fact that the gravitational pull is slightly greater at the poles that at the equator. Also, we know it is round due to space pictures, ships appear to sink slightly as they move farther away from us, and that during a lunar eclipse, the earth casts a round shadow upon the moon. We know it is spherical in shape due to the fact that all other celestial objects are spherical, so we can correctly assume that the earth is spherical as well.

Really guys. I’m in 8th grade and I know this stuff. Come on. You guys really cannot be that stupid to disprove what scientists have proved thousands of years ago, like the Greek guy Eratosthenes.

No, I would not kill an unknown stranger no matter what the payment was to be.

Killing people is morally wrong, there is no way to actually justify murder. So, you get 1 billion dollars, your life is made, but what if that person had a family, and they were on the brink of poverty, and that that person dying meant the whole family being unable to feed themselves and soon die. So what, that doesn’t affect you? Killing one person is one thing, but having a whole family killed as a chain reaction is just inhuman. What if another person took the deal and your family was in that situation and one of your parents was targeted? Would it still feel like a good idea to take the deal?

Originally posted by Hallucent:

Yes I would, without hesitation.

I would then give $995 million to cancer research, keeping the other $5 million for myself.

Donating millions of dollars to various charities won’t clear your conscience. Don’t take me wrong, I’m all for finding a cure for cancer, but still. You can “justify” it by saying that the man died to find a cure for cancer, but the man is still dead by your own hand. Giving the money that you earned away doesn’t make it right. It may ease the guilt a little bit, but if that opportunity came again, you would most likely take it right away and not give any away because you are thinking that you have already given away your fair share.

They can can and have been, like most psychadelics. But are they still doing this? I hate to be problematic, but I’m going to have to ask for a citation.

First one
Second one
Third one
Fourth one
I gave you four. Is that enough?

Meh.

Read it, studied it, did not really like it.

In my opinion, it’s actually quite interesting. It provides an account on the Salem witch trials. Maybe the reason you didn’t like it was because you had to study it.

Originally posted by Ungeziefer:

Not only that some other illegal drugs also have medical purposes and are used in certain medical treatments, such as magic mushrooms. Hopefully I have made my point clear.

Are or were? I have no knowledge of any current use of psilo mushrooms for anything right now. Would be very curious and suprised to know if there is anything going on.

Almost all currently illegal drugs have a wide arrange o medical uses and are generally still in application. Heroin is little different from any other opiate used for pain treatment. Cocaine used to be used for all sorts of surgery and as a mood lifter – its refined form not so much any more – but coca leaves are widely used across South America and something of a tourist attraction in Peru. Methamphetamine were and still are used in the military, particularly for extended missions by pilots.

It does not make a difference whether it can be proven or not, this is a discussion and just something for you to ponder when you can’t fall asleep and you are too lazy to get up and get a book or watch TV or something.

That is the only one you are aware of. Have you ever had deja vu or a premonition and wonder how you got that? Have you ever wonder if there exists a parallel dimension in which you have glimpsed into, one that has the past or future in it, one which showed what would happen if you chose one thing instead of the other? Wouldn’t it be great if we were able to glance into that reality more often to see what would happen if you did the other thing in your greatest what if? Think about that for a while and then respond.

Yes, but do you believe that there may be others, as well as some that may effect this reality, whether positively or negatively.
