  1. sorry don't know how to spell unnesiserly. im not sure if this should be under philosophy. Are people unnesiserly embarrassed over things they shouldn't be embarrassed about? has the scocierrty made people be embarrassed about things that there is no reason to be embarrassed about? I coundnt find any studies on this exact question but i did find some studies on embarrassment. " Results are consistent with the compliance model that embarrassed individuals seek the positive experience of helping someone in order to relieve the discomfort of their embarrassment." http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/
  2. is it possible to memorize something complex for the rest of your life? hoe many times do you have to replete something to memorize it for life? I really want to learn chemistry, biology and other sciences but every time that I watch a lecture online or read a text book I dont remember enough things I try repeating them ,it takes me a long time to keep repeating something long enough to memorize it and i think what is the point of learning science.I spend so much effort in memorizing but dont use it. I need to repeat things every so often to know the information and not forget it and if I don
  3. I was born in a country that retaught their citizens to right with their right hand and they still do that today schools during my time didn't even accept students that wrote with their left hand everyone had to be retrained. I lived there until I turned seven and then came to the us. I was still right handed but at one point I injured my right hand and had to use my left and I can still feel that even though i write with both hands equally well and I do not feel a difference. I sometimes reach with my left hand to grab something and I think that I grab things with my left hand more often beca
  4. what exactly is still present? give me a right that men have that women don't.
  5. MigL" While I agree with you, guys about the disadvantages females face, rights are not equivalent to a ship that's off course. I would very much like to see more women participating in our forum, and get their perspective, for one thing. It would get rid of the 'novelty' and this avatar foolishness for one thing. ( I personally favor Hypervalent's approach; I simply consider her an intelligent person, neither male nor female )" I understand there are many disadvantages that females face but I dont want men to not have a voice and i see in America they are being shamed by women guilt tr
  6. its better to have a well lit room when your staring at any bright screens. my dad always told me take a break from the computer and do some eye exercises. every half hour to an hour usually I forget but I try to do that. in fact its better to set your screen to the lowest brightness to not damage your eyes.the kindle black and white actually does no damage to your eyes, its like reading from a peice of paper.
  7. I used to really like to watch ted talks and the youtube channel dnews. i also am a big fan of hermiony from the harry potter series. I like the actress who played her and now there are more social justice or feminist videos on ted talks, laci green who hosted dnews is a feminist and same with the actress who plays hermiony in harry potter. I think there is a good kind of feminist that is for equality but the represented in the media feminist is trying to give women more rights then men and they usually use all their arguments just to complain about something. these feminists are going along w
  8. I think that science and religion are not comparable therfore there should be no fight. i dont believe in any religion i dint believe it tries to seek the truth it just tries to satisfy peoples wants to become better or get help from god. it makes them feel better thats all it does otherwise so many more people would not believe in the bible and write an updated version of it. i am only talking about the fundamentalists that believe this word for word, im not talking about anyone who believes in the bible.
  9. I think real is a perception if we think things are real then they are real to us. I do agree we are afraid of questions but I think we are more afraid of getting the wrong answer. for instance i like to believe there is no god and that people have free will because I don't like to think that someone created us and that there is someone intelligent out there that is looking at u and can destroy us at any point. i like to believe in free will because that means i can change my personality if we do not have free will that would be depressing that means that i can never change and if its meat to
  10. I don't understand the model you have set up but i think that you cant really create free will because like you said the circumstances or tasks have been created by someone elces free will. i like to believe that we do have free will it makes me feel better, that means I can change, if we didint have free will we would not be able to change our personalities, and maybe we cant change them i cant seem to change mine. I think for now we dont have the science to set up this experiment.
  11. its definitely a tool it could be destructive depends on who's hands its in. I think it is more good then bad because its mostly used for people to survive, its a way for people to exchange their work and favors.
  12. maybe some emotions can be quantified. i was at the science festival at an even which talked about emotions the speaker said that emotions like grief have been measured by an mri to have the same chemical reaction as getting punched in the stomach really hard. I don't think they can be measured other then relative comparison more or less then previous scan not an exact number but i do think it can be compared. I did not like this festival, it was mainly for kids and it showed simple experiments like blow up a balloon let it go and it will fly around. pretty boring. i really want to go to the
  13. I have had a dream like this where i had to go to the bathroom but the only bathroom around was disgusting it had rats swimming in it. but when I woke up I did not have to go to the bathroom. it could be just a coincidence because every time i got this dream i didn't have to go.
  14. is this saying that what was witnessed was really an illusion? and that it was tested at one point in time and had not got retested more to get proven better? i think this is an onion article but i dont understand it that well i reread it and dont understand the terminology. i dont understand what they mean by "Disproving the STR and other related theories of physics " what is STR? I bet if it was really disproven there will be do much more media coverage, and it will be alot more publicized then it is now, there have got to be scientists that looked at this and said this is bogus no need to d
  15. wow thats grate. hopefully they will find a universal well working medication for depression from this. and hopefully this will work on more then just mice. I wish this video said more about the brain it just says how the amigdala when depressed dosent assign an emotion to the event. that just seems like not a very impressive discovery and that there is more to it. what i would want is a medication that controls emotions during periods because i think it effects me very negatively its something i cant control and so far there is no medication for it.
  16. I haven't been on this site for a while but now im back. I'm not that smart in science but I do like finding out new things and doing research on different topics. I would like to get a lot better with science especially chemistry.I want an education in science beyond high school but I cant afford to go back to college. I occasionally go to the library and read all the science magazines and I do enjoy science documentaries on the science channel and discovery. But i do want some smart friends around to inspire me to learn more on my won. anyway I got a virus and the doctor told me I should ta
  17. what do Egalitarians believe in ? egalitarianism is equality for all people, thinking we all have the same fundamental worth. they try to gain equal rights for all people. but I dont think I believe that this is fair. I believe that since the two genders are physiologically different they need different treatment based on the barriers each gender faces. Does this mean egalitarians want the same amount of paternity leave for men as maternity for women? because otherwise men and women would have different social rights, women would get more rights for maternity leave then men for paternity leav
  18. I agree with phi for all. knowledge is information someone learned, by connecting information together or material being told to you which is already gathered. I would also add that information is something we discover by using proof all this information like the bottle the surroundings like lavish tablecloth are all proof of information you are looking for.
  19. I don't really understand what your saying or asking, it might be good to rephrase this, that's probably why you didn't get many answers the previous time you posted this.its okay sometimes I say things in the most confusing way possible. "it is the size of the universe. To me it feels like it is so big that "size" really doesn't describe it. It does me no good to say to myself "of course it may be infinite so what do you expect"" when size cant describe it it means that its infinite because everything that is not infinite can be measured you just have to have bigger units or there is to
  20. you guys were asking me for some sources on children making the decision I coulnt find the documentary I was watching about it but i found a snipit of it that explains somehting,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNWB8SuxCIk the video i bookmarked was taken down but this was a portion of it. my friend recommended it to me that's why all these questions came up. its about the whittington family with a child named ryland who was born a girl but became a boy. most of the videos I find on youtube of transgender people they are under 18 years old when they hget hormonal therapy or a sex change. i
  21. yes sex is linked to shame, but for right reasons, kids should not see sex, animals dont normally have sex in front of their young in the wild. And therefore perfectly free from embarrassment? it is not free of embarrassment because not everyone wants to see sex in public, i have seen some people naked that i will never forget. not haveing sex in public is more related to higher intelligence, because its harder to keep yourself from haveing sex and it shows that people respect other people, if other people dont want to see sex while walking down the street they dont have to. Its almost
  22. they can depending if there is a stereotype linked to the accessory. somethings look gothic and the people who wear them have similar personality traits like introversion.
  23. aww sorry for your loss, it is definitely hard to let go of a death even with animals. i feel so bad for your doggie, but they just dont live as long as people.
