  1. I don't like the idea but I don't fear the moment. Like Tyrion Lannister said: "Death is so final, while life is full of possibilities." At what age do you start to live forever? If everything lives forever then there is no joy….
  2. It's not my intent but I think many people find me a troll. The Wikipedia definition of 'Internet troll' mostly fits with me.
  3. Not really no. Doing excercise/sport or having an active life is (for most people) beneficial for several reasons. Your body ages less fast by doing excercise/sport or having active lifestyle...and you are less prone to form mental health issues.
  4. The idea of afterlife or heaven is due to wishful thinking ….many people are afraid of dying so they believe in afterlife or heaven. It goes in against evolution.
  5. 'adapt or die' is what survival of the fittest is all about. The OP asked for pessimistic thoughts….
  6. That's an odd statement. There is no causal link between being a pessimist and dying.
  7. No. I think The miracles go in line with the rest of the stories...they are to teach 'morality'.
  8. We live to die. When you are born, the only thing that's certain is that you will die.
  9. The beneficial effects are imo due to mr.placebo.
  10. The yeast used by people for millennia to ferment alcoholic drinks can now produce cannabinoids – chemicals with medicinal properties as well as occasionally mind-altering characteristics in cannabis. The accomplishment, described in Nature on February 27, transforms a sugar known as galactose in brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) into THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary psychoactive compound in Cannabis sativa or cannabis. Moreover, the modified enzyme can yield CBD or cannabidiol, another essential cannabinoid that’s been famous lately for its possible therapeutic benefits, such as pain-relief and anti-anxiety effects. The aspirations are that this process of fermentation will empower manufacturers to produce CBD, THC, and rare cannabinoids that exist in small amounts in nature more efficiently, reliably, and cheaply than traditional plant-based cultivation. Past work detailed constructing parts of the production of cannabinoid in yeast, but not the entire process. According to Hyasynth Bio chief executive Kevin Chen, the recent study is the first to combine and show that it works within one cell. The Montreal, Canada-based Hyasynth Bio is one of about ten companies collaborating to produce cannabinoids in altered yeast, algae, or bacteria. Scientists have produced anti-malaria medicines for economic purposes, and opiates in the laboratory, using the same yeast-grown methods previously. However, the technology for producing cannabinoids is not ready for commercial production any time soon. According to AltaCorp Capital cannabis analyst David Kideckel of Toronto, Canada, it will take at most two years before synthetic cannabinoids become cheap enough to sell to the general public or pharmaceutical companies.https://thecannabisradar.com/scientists-use-hacked-beer-yeast-to-brew-cannabis/184/
  11. The true meaning of praying is imo useless. But praying can cause you to feel better/stronger on a personal level. And praying can increase groupcohesion which can have beneficial effects.
  12. What is often meant with 'soul' is our conscious mind. Consciousness evolved and is imo a property of the central nervous system.
  13. I think you should temper what you say (not everything) and you should realize things which sound 'logic' to you are not necessary logic for other people. So unless you have valid reference to back up your opinions, it's sometimes better not to join the 'thread'. My reputation is positive but my reputation on this forum is messed up.
  14. I made soup with forgotten vegetables but it was just plain water...I forgot the vegetables.
  15. Do you think it's moral to edit genes of unborn children? This concerns the CRISPR baby-scandal.https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00673-1
  16. It was not random and life doesn't evolve by chance. Things evolve via cause and effect. The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the observable universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution. This 'large scale evolution' formed our Solar system and Earth had the correct 'composition' for life to develop/evolve.
  17. I'm sorry, when I hear 'climate change supporter' I think about someone who thinks climate change is great and cheerleads climate change.
  18. When did it start? This paper makkes it seem logic that the global warming started when we started to cut trees/plants.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/01/world/european-colonization-climate-change-trnd/index.html According to this paper: "Scientists generally regard the later part of the 19th century as the point at which human activity started influencing the climate. But the new study brings that date forward to the 1830s."https://www.carbonbrief.org/scientists-clarify-starting-point-for-human-caused-climate-change
  19. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle forms a fundamental element of quantum mechanics. Uncertainty relations in terms of entropies were initially proposed to deal with conceptual shortcomings in the original formulation of the uncertainty principle and, hence, play an important role in quantum foundations.https://arxiv.org/pdf/1511.04857.pdf I'm sorry I did not counter your arguments. I didn't see them. When I look/go close to a donkey it changes it's behavior. It's the Hawthorne effect this is mo the real observer effect. You change the energy of something by interacting with it or by using measuring devices...this is rather a measurement effect. You still have to observe what you measure…... True but in the Hawthorne effect, you change what you observe because it has a conscious mind. Also, observing/looking doesn't change lightning(electrons), measuring the lightning does.
  20. It's today 19°C in Belgium, that's uncommonly warm. I noticed (in my garden) plants that grow with less water grow more often compact and their roots are more developed. Water is an ingredient of photosynthesis so with less water, you decrease the growth of a plant.
