  1. Or that people believe an action is immoral. Many 'external' factors can form your opinion whether you find an action immoral or not.
  2. Hawking proposed that information is lost in black holes, and not preserved in Hawking radiation. Susskind disagreed, arguing that Hawking's conclusions violated one of the most basic scientific laws of the universe, the conservation of information. As Susskind depicts in his book, "The Black Hole War" was a "genuine scientific controversy" between scientists favoring an emphasis on the principles of relativity against those in favor of quantum mechanics. The debate led to the holographic principle, proposed by Gerard 't Hooft and refined by Susskind, which suggested that the information is in fact preserved, stored on the boundary of a system.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Hole_War Their 'views' on what's inside: http://www.hawking.org.uk/into-a-black-hole.html
  3. Neanderthals and Denisovans might have lived side by side for tens of thousands of years, scientists report in two papers in Nature. The long-awaited studies are based on the analysis of bones, artefacts and sediments from Denisova Cave in southern Siberia, which is dotted with ancient-human remains. They provide the first detailed history of the site’s 300,000-year occupation by different groups of ancient humans.https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00353-0
  4. Having sex is necessary because it helps us to preserve our genetic legacies For this reason it's imo an evolutionary trait that having sex is or can be fun...for many animal species.
  5. According to the No-hair theorem Info that enters a black hole doesn't leave 'quantum scars'. According to this theorem the event horizon doesn't alter when the black hole feeds. Stephen Hawking thought differently. He suggested that black holes might have 'sot hairs' low-energy quantum excitations that release information when the black hole evaporates.

    Yes it is. Gluten in food also contain a lot of glutamine....

    Glutamine is necessary for muscle building and it has an effect on your mitochondria. Many proteins contain glutamine but the 'concentration' differs. What's wrong about that information? I did not say it's the only protein that contains glutamine. But the concentration glutamine is high in gluten. Yes they are. Gluten contain a lot of glutamine, your ribosomes create proteins with a long glutamine tract, those proteins bind, form a body and do damage. I have a polyglutamine disease.(SCA type 7)

    Gluten contain glutamine. The polyglutamine (polyQ) diseases are a group of neurodegenerative disorders caused by expanded cytosine-adenine-guanine (CAG) repeats encoding a long polyQ tract in the respective proteins.
  9. Antarctica used to be green.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jul/17/antarctica-tropical-climate-co2-research
  10. Every year, water shortages affect more than one-third of the world’s population. In 2017, even Rome — ancient pioneer of urban water provision — saw its myriad public drinking fountains switched off. Environmental economist Edward Barbier plunges deep into these and other stories from the fascinating, often fraught world of water management past and present in his scholarly but accessible study The Water Paradox. Barbier investigates, too, the threats looming over water resources. The paradox is this: despite ample scientific evidence on exploitation and overuse of fresh water, and ample wealth, knowledge and institutional power, humanity has created a preventable water crisis. We persist in exploiting fresh water as if it were abundant, even as we recognize its scarcity. By 2040, 2 billion people will be affected by the global groundwater crisis (more water being withdrawn than is refilling aquifers); Indonesia, Iran and South Africa will be among the countries suffering from high or extreme water stress. The pressure will be environmental and agricultural, and will intensify social and economic crises.https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00214-w
  11. Today I learned the asteroid that caused the mass extinction 65 million years ago probably caused extreme global cooling. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/11/dinosaurs-extinction-asteroid-chicxulub-soot-earth-science/
  12. Scientists drilling into a buried Antarctic lake 600 kilometres from the South Pole have found surprising signs of ancient life: the carcasses of tiny animals preserved under a kilometre of ice. The crustaceans and a tardigrade, or ‘water bear’ — all smaller than poppy seeds — were found in Subglacial Lake Mercer, a body of water that had lain undisturbed for thousands of years. Until now, humans had seen the lake only indirectly, through ice-penetrating radar and other remote-sensing techniques. But that changed on 26 December when researchers funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) succeeded in melting a narrow portal through the ice to the water below. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00106-z
  13. The bible does 'say' homosexuals shall be put to death.(leviticus 20:13) Wars do insert a random aspect. Basically in wars humans are killed because they are part of a 'group'.
  14. You do know immigration is not the same as tourism?
  15. Immigration is the international movement of people into a destination country of which they are not natives or where they do not possess citizenship in order to settle or reside there. Tourism implies travelling without the goal of settling/residing at the place you're travelling to. Asian countries, especially Thailand, India, the Philippines, Cambodia, and Nepal are common destinations for sex tourists, as well as countries in Central and South America.
  16. Global warming changes climates and in the not so far future there will be (on average)less easily drinkable water...maybe this will have an effect on our selective breeding behavior.
  17. Have a look: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirituality#Definition I don't redefine words. You (and many other people on this forum) assume your ideas/definitions concerning semantics count for the rest of the world...
  18. No. Spirituality can mean a lot of things...you can use it as synonym for creativity….semantics. You finally say something partly useful. Einstein was very deterministic which is why he thought QM is incomplete, tried to debunk heisenberg uncertainty, created a hidden variable theory but did not publish it, said: "God does not play dice with the universe". His deterministic point of view underlined all his theories...including general relativity. The holographic principle (which explains the randomness)for example fits with the no-hair theorem. True determinism/indeterminism can never be 'proven'. The randomness in QM is what science currently 'says' about our reality. Science develops/evolves continuously so it's impossible to know how quantum mechanics will look in maybe 500 years. Faith implies believing in things without evidence. You can't know what 'experimental' evidence they will find. Faith based models/theories might become 'scientific'.
  19. No, I asked if Einstein used religion rather as a metaphor for creativity/spirituality/imaginativeness. Einstein then conflated them….not me. Janus said he rather meant 'curiosity' Curiosity is a 'fundamental building block'http://www.creativitypost.com/psychology/want_to_innovate_science_says_be_curious of creativity and creativity leans on imagination.https://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/learn/creativity
  20. I'm not conflating religion and imagination, I asked what Einstein meant. Why is it so difficult to react to what I actually say? I see. Curiosity is a 'fundamental building block'http://www.creativitypost.com/psychology/want_to_innovate_science_says_be_curious of creativity and creativity leans on imagination.https://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/learn/creativity
  21. I didn't know it was this 'strong' in Greenland as well. It's part of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_methane_emissions
  22. Scientists and the models they build have underestimated the amount of methane seeping from beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet and into the atmosphere, according to new research.https://www.upi.com/Greenlands-ice-sheet-is-emitting-a-lot-of-methane/3321546532876/
