Topic: Serious Discussion / what do you think hell looks like?

I’d say hell is all fire, torture and satan, though i suppose hell is different for everyone, tailored to what they hate or fear. Whereas heaven is a paradise for each individual, if i got to heaven i doubt i’d see god at all

Topic: Serious Discussion / IF god was real why dosnt he fix the world we live in now

having watched it earlier today i’d say the film bruce almighty shows why god doesn’t give us everything we want also as an after thought we don’t want paradise we got chucked out of eden and do nothing unless it benefits us in some way. there are very few completely selfless people out there if any

It was one study, where was it carried out, maybe the women in that region are not as desperate or maybe their husbands are richer

Topic: Serious Discussion / Fat People on Planes

this guy is still human and has the right to human decency, maybe he has a medical condition, maybe he really loves food, it doesn’t matter he should get the same opportunity as everyone else.

Topic: Serious Discussion / There are no gays in Star Wars..

Aren’t the droids C-3PO and R2D2 percieved as being gay, also there seems to be a very close relationship between the two male aliens that have a problem with Luke in the cantina in episode 4. Why do u have a problem with their been no man on man action in a sci-fi film, there aren’t any lesbians either, starwars is still one of the greatest sagas of all time

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is criminality genetic?

criminality is not genetic, it is based soulley on the individual and how they percieve the world. However, in my experience everyone on the planet is a criminal. No one is perfect

Topic: Off-topic / Whats worse, blind or deaf

I’ve been thinking about this recently as i’m a person who has a terrible habit of complaining about how horrible life is for me and never doing anything to fix it. i had a revelation the other day, it won’t change me as i have a lot of them but this recent one still has be seeing the great beauty in the world. I also like to believe i can live life without any family ties or close friends but it still seems good to talk to someone even to hear the voice of a family member occassionaly as i’m away from home for uni. So i’ve been thinking which is worse going through life unable to see its beauty or being unable to hear the voices of those you love and care about

Topic: Serious Discussion / How do apologise to a great friend after getting drunk and punching them in the face

See I was rather wasted last night, so i don’t even remember doing it. He told me what i did, sorry didn’t seem to mean anything to him. I offered to let him hit me to make us even you know but he just walked out. I caused pain even in an attempt to make us even. He’s only in the room next door, yet i haven’t seen him all day and as i don’t remember doing it i don’t know how badly i injured him. Please help me, how do i fix this?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Counselor Confidentiality

My other post may contradict this, but even if suicide or abuse is mentioned, counselors shouldn’t have the right to divulge information to anyone about what the patient said,without the patient’s permission! Or at least having given the patient, the counselor’s limits beforehand!!

Topic: Serious Discussion / Counselor Confidentiality

Having read one of the posts above my own, to hell with the law. If a patient is told what they say is confidential then whether they harm themselves or not, it should only be discussed between the patient and counselor. Furthermore the patient should never be coerced into allowing a counselor to report such things. To hell with what people say parents should be in formed of, once a patient is over 18 they should have that choice for themselves. A persons life is their own business, if they want to harm it, no one else should feel obligated to stop them.

If a counsellor is told anything, they should always keep what is shared between themselves and a patient should always be confidential.

Topic: Serious Discussion / If you were homeless, would you put yourself in jail?

If I were homeless, I think I’d be doing everything I could to stay out of jail. I think its more life affirming to attempt to make it on your own despite your situation. To stand on your own two feet, face the world and never give up, than get myself arrested just so i can live off the government in some box on the edge of some city! Surely if you are homeless, you have the chance to do whatever you want to do, your way, screw society, screw politics, screw laws. If the world put you there, then you have the right to do whatever you need to to survive. If it were me i think i’d travel the world, illegally cross borders and see the natural world away from the disease of humanity.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Artificial Intelligence

I accept that an Artificial Intelligence system is intelligent. I believe that the only difference between the brain and a computer is that one is organic and the other is inorganic. However, this is quite a large difference. Yes, AI can reason, it does problem solve but it is created. i suppose if you’re religous it’s the difference between Adam and Eve and Jesus. As humans we evolved and were each born but a machine is created. No matter how intelligent a machine with AI may seem it is created and programmed by man. A simple program of IF statements which allow a computer to analyse a collection of variables before choosing one that most matches a pattern. So I accept that AI can intelligent as a non-biological system but it will never be so advanced as to overtake organic life, at least not within the next century.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What's Your Political Party?

I’ve only voted once and that was for the green party because i really thought that what they stood for was much better than what the conservatives, labour or the liberals were doing for us. But surprise, surprise they didn’t get anywhere close to getting in. Conservatives I think spit on the little guy, they don’t see that its worth it to give welfare. Someone could be injured and unable to work but conservatives just assume they’re lazy, or conservatives spend more time sending young people to war even if the country isn’t involved. However, Labour has been doing the same thing with this war on terror. But at least labour give support to those who need it at home. The liberals do nothing major from what i can see. But politics confuses me greatly, i mean people were so against Tony Blair that he resigned yet he was one of our two longest serving Prime ministers. Why when he made a blunder in each of this three terms did we vote him in so much. I want britain out of iraq and to stop following America wherever they go, but labour is doing this. The conservatives maybe worse!! If you don’t vote you have no say in the running of a country, but no one as far as i can see helps Britain in the slightest. And can someone please tell me why people want Gordon Brown out, but don’t want David Cameron in power?

Topic: Serious Discussion / What would it be like with no emotions?

Well a classic example of a man with no emotion is Ebenezer Scrooge and he seemed to do just fine in fact he was very successful. Though he didn’t fit in with society. So you could be powerful, you could be rich, but you’d be alone. And I think is what happens if you have no emotion.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What is your goal in life?

I believe some low paid actor once said Go forth, and Prosper! One could argue that that is the meaning of life, for a second opinion consult Monty Python.
