Topic: Serious Discussion / Nudism: Inspiring, or pointless

Nudist hope to create a society where people are not ashamed of themselves and are self confident. And also point out that being nude is different than sex.

I myself believe this is pointless, as what will making people not ashamed of themselves going to prove? Sure, it is nice watching them try, but it is not going to happen anytime soon.

Nudist argue that nudism is greener for the planet, as people use less water doing laundry, its faster and easier, saves money on clothes, and makes the most sense.

a lot of the criticisms of nudism is usually backed against with valid reasons for nudism (I argued with a nudist once. Trust me, it is hard to prove your point), and critics of nudism are often called “bigots”, which is what gay right activist use against homophobes.

So, back to the point, is nudism pointless, neutral, or actually a good idea.
your thoughts.

Yeah yeah, I don’t agree with it either. But I doubt they are going to change it though. But we still need to try to take a stand.

Can you give more examples of random humor?

Okay, I was sitting in my car the other day, when all of a sudden some guy in a banana costume comes up and stares at me. I try asking what he wants, but then he pours a bucket of water in my car, and runs off laughing.
^ Random humour.

One of the biggest problems with marijuana research is a catch-22. The research that can be done is extremely limited because marijuana is a controlled substance. On thew other hand, in order to properly declassify it, we need to thoroughly research its effects, which cannot be done whilst it is a controlled substance…

Yep, marijuana should be legal only for medical and scientific reasons.

Marijuana really has no health effects, but they worry that people who do marijuana will also do other drugs like cocaine and shit. Fear really controls people. I too, admit that if I saw some hippie smoking weed at the store I would get quite worried that he might put up an act.
I think marijuana should be legal, but for medical uses only.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Cultural Imperialism

Who cares about cultural imperialism? If they really want to go to their old ways, they will. If they like the new ways that has been brought to them, it’s their choice. The world changes everyday, and we can do nothing to stop it.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Anime and it's impact on society

This also tells me you haven’t tried to look at a range of anime, or potentially haven’t bothered looking at any animes with an adult target audience, and are concentrating solely on the animes with a child target audience.

Try some of the more sophisticated ones, like: Wings of Honneamise, Golgo 13 Queen Bee, Tales of the Black Freighter, Howl’s Moving Castle, Laputa: Castle in the Sky

Each is different, very different. Each is sophisticated in its own way, and I suspect you’ll really, really struggle to label any of them as a ‘cartoon’.

It’ll also give you a glimpse with that selection, of truly how little the full range of animes has in common with one another. I’ve grabbed examples there, from all over the spectrum.

Yes yes, Anime has a wide array of genres. when I said stupid, I wasn’t referring to the child anime’s, but anime in general.
I do agree with WLoJTqpCToLW, Expressing yourself in a dark and complicated way. Over here in the west, if someone is expressing themselves with a dark and depressing overtone, we all freak out wondering they are mentally ill. In japan, they don’t give shit, As long as they can relate, and understand It is FICTION, It is just fine. We are way to wary of mental illnesses over here in the west, Look at ADHD for example. It has “risen” in numbers over the years. I believe they are just worrying too much. What if the kid just wants a more fun way to learn? I admit, just looking at a math teacher all day would be boring.

How do thought provoking animes which eschew or demonise violence fit into this mold? Films like The Wings of Honneamise as an example?

You seem to be damming the media, rather than damming the individual messages within it. It is like saying that because one book writes about violence, all books must be having the same negative, neutral or positive effect on culture.

Anime is just a medium, just like books are. Within that medium, all manner of different philosophies run off in all different directions. So just as you might seek to stymie all books as evil because some of them contain violence and they all have writing in common, or uphold all books as good because some of them speak of healing techniques and all books have writing in common, so it is with anime.

Literally the only thing they all have in common is the method in which information is presented. Why does it make sense to critique them as a group, when the only thing they all have in common, is that alone?

I was not stating that is what I feel. I was stating that their are some who feel this way. I was in the neutral zone as I later stated. I don’t believe this has a negative effect on society. That is like saying south park is having a negative impact and ignoring the rest of the media. Media as a whole would be the problem, not some stupid Japanese cartoon.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Anime and it's impact on society

Yes indeed. I do admit, I admire the anime art style. The story lines are hell of lot better than most American comics. I mean, come on, Goku is like ten times better than super man! I am more of the neutral zone though, it really does not concern me. Anime can get very sexual at times, hence is why to stay out of that hentai. Sorry I misused “conclusion” I just want a good discussion on everyones thoughts on anime.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Anime and it's impact on society

A lot of people like to watch anime. The same group also like to read manga.
Because of the large fanbase of anime, ( so called “otaku’s”), it has been the subject of much parodies, and even American works which copy the anime style.
Some say that anime has had a negative impact on society, as it often is violent and sexual in nature.
Others say anime has had a positive impact on society, as it’s art style is very admirable and praise it’s creative story lines and characters.
So let’s come to a conclusion, is anime having a positive, neutral or positive effect on our culture?

Imagine the universe were to go back in time to a random point before life. .

well, the problem is that now you are imagining things. assuming there could be more than one timeline without any evidence isn’t a good idea. and the fact that a way of looking at something is easier than another way doesn’t mean much. i do agree that the decision we make are obviously based on who we are, and who we are is a composition of nature and nurture, but that doesn’t mean that you are the one making your own decisions.

Well, we do. I believe that our consciousness is just a element God created, a special kind of element, that has it’s own values and thinking. When he put us on this earth, he tied our consciousness to these bodies, which is way we feel pain and are stuck with the laws of gravity. He put us in these bodies to test if we are holy enough to live in his kingdom. And of course this is where Satan comes in. He tempts us to try to steer us off of making to the kingdom of god, because Satan want’s revenge or whatever. When we follow Satan, we are actually giving up our free will to him, As he WANTS us to do sin, therefore making us sin against our own free will. So we have a free will, but when we sin, we are giving it to Satan.

i suggest trying to back up your beliefs with evidence. just saying. btw, if god created us why would he/she/it need to test us? if we fail to do as he/she/it wishes, wouldn’t it be his/her/its fault?

Why else would we be put here if he wasn’t testing us? Our we like his Sims or something?
It is just what I believe, The idea I have been raised with.

i don’t think you can possibly prove that we are “put” on earth by any kind of deity. and Kasic is right. don’t get me wrong, no one here is calling your parents liars, because they were also raised to believe this stuff. it is like a never-ending cycle of lies. i hope that makes sense.

Y’all think my parents were typical? They were assholes! They treated me like shit all me life, and I was proud like many of y’all to leave them. I wasn’t introduced to Jesus and moral all that much until I was an adult. A few of my friends started introducing me to the bible, Jesus and moral, and I am proud that I am accepted it.
How tardy of you to assume I never put a thought into it. I have. I think all the time about death, the beginning and life, and what life is, and the meaning of it.
In fact, I don’t really have a religion. I at times, am like “With what I am doing now, will I make it into heaven? Is god pleased with what I am doing?” While are other times I am like “How did the universe start? What will death be like?”
I am like some kind of atheist Christian or whatever.
I put thought into it, I was raised without religion. As an adult, I am surrounded by all kinds of people. Mormons, Methodists, and hell, even a catholic friend.

Topic: Serious Discussion / The Meaning of Life

There is no “Meaning” of life, just what our paths are. We are were made to contribute to the universe some way or another, and we must find that way. Try being nothing but yourself for a day, see who you are. Discover your talents, and when you find your number one talent, use it to change the world anyway you can. Even if your talent is small, you can still change a few peoples lives for the better, and they will try to change the world any way they can, make other peoples day better, and so forth. Just find your talent, make sure if it easy for you, and you enjoy doing it. If it is hard for you, and you hate doing it, it is not your talent.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What happens after death

If you don’t believe in god, then I guess this is what happens: We still are thinking, but we can’t move or anything because our conciseness left our bodies, disabling any control of it. So you don’t have eyes or anything, all you can do is think about your life, what you did, forever. I think our conciseness is a element, even another matter, that thinks for it’s own. We are tied to these bodies, which are made of earthly elements, and we are in control. The sad thing is, we all die, we all live forever, but only temporally in these kick ass bodies. After death, you are stuck to your thoughts.

It would make sense if it all was only symbolic. Like the resurrection only meant Jesus’ will lived on. And the feeding of five thousand was actually just investment. But even literal or not, I believe it to be true, but that’s just me.
