    Amuse me for a second, I am going to conjure a conspiracy theory..

    It has to do with American politics and how Europe, or actually how the Vatican, uses pro-life to divide America. So hear me out: for a lot of Republican voters, one major issue they vote for is abortion. If anyone has studied the history of abortion and how it relates to Protestants in the US...

    Dumb and dumbers from Youtube.

    I miss the dumb pointless youtube videos that defined the 2000s. Let's go back to that. Rules: 1) Videos must be under 3 minutes 2) Only 1 video per day 3) You are allowed to comment on someone's video, but if you do, you must post a video yourself

    I have a theory concerning COVID and personalities.

    I think because of this pandemic, we'll have an uptick in personalities being more introverted, and that the population in general will see a rise in more introverted people. People aren't able to gather as much as they've used to, so extroversion isn't as being exercised as much. It's a simple...

    How is your country faring with Corona?

    Not to flex or anything, but South Korea is, well, as most people know from the news, doing quite well. No extreme lockdown of any sort, and we've been able to minimize our deaths to around only 450~, with currently 26,000 cases confirmed. Around 24,000 recovered, so only around 2,000 have the...

    Atheism [thread split Does communism suck ?]

    Atheism is just the lack of belief in a traditional deity. But atheism can set up idols for ourselves, to which we can put up false hope upon. I don't mean it as a personal thing. For me, understanding atheism is the easiest form of thought, because it requires no thought at all.

    Where does the meaning or make up of the word jacking off come from?

    Like I know it means masturbating, but jacking off? Like trying to jack a switch to go to sleep? In Korean the word had a different eyptomological root so I was wondering where the US one comes from. Help me, dark side of the internet? Lol

    Is pornography moral?

    Just want to armchair about a topic. Is pornography moral? We could go at this from both religious and non-religious views. To start, we'll define our terms: pornography is a recording of any sexual activity between two humans, whether it be for sexual pleasure, a quenching of lust, or sexual...

    I found some funny quiz, "intersectionality"

    Is there such thing as perfect morality?

    So I think it's common census that we as a peoples have grown to be more moral with the passing of time. Take slavery for example, or something like universal suffrage. However, it's unsure whether or not we are actually going into a more morally progressive state than we were just a moment ago...

    Generally, does love find you or do you have to find it or work for it?

    Welp. So basically I think this girl I met at a certain camp has a bf- albert I never really took the time to get to know her more since I had to leave the camp prematurely- but I did get her number and a promise to "see each other" about a month later because she's taking a 'short trip' with...

    What is a story? What makes it so captivating and gripping for people, such as through oral speech or through books or film, and how is it advantageous to us as a species, and/or is there a certain teleology that is within stories and storytelling that we head towards? Is there supposedly a...

    Interesting questions to ask to a Christian

    No, not mundane questions like does God exist or not, but something like: If you had to choose between saving your child or the very last Bible on face of the earth, which would you choose?

    Does overpopulation affect our purpose in life?

    Many of us on this forum prescribe or at least parrot Sartre on the purpose of life, that we make one of our own and just go with it. Now this existentialism is admirable in the sense that it's basically you verse the world and you finding a place in it, but beyond it, what would that mean in...

    Realism, does Plato's Forms exist?

    For those who are unfamiliar with Plato's Theory of Forms, Plato basically thought that there was a realm somewhere where the perfect idea or thing of an idea that existed somewhere. What I mean by that is this: let's say there was a chair. What makes a chair a chair? We're here reading the...

    Does the sense of the range of colors undermine beauty?

    In the animal kingdom we are only able to visualise colors from a certain color spectrum, but for dogs and even reindeers, their color spectrum could be smaller or eveb bigger (apparently reindeers can see ultraviolet rays). What I'm trying to get at is that since colors are not universal for...

    What do you think is the essence of nationality?

    What do you think nationality is, in terms of its essence? I mean this could differ for many people, as the essence can be boiled down into many things.. What do you think it is? A shared history? A shared biology? (speaking technically, e.g. DNA) A shared goal/principle? (the American...

    What do you think more defines humanity: our will or our ability to rationalize?

    What do you think sets us apart from other animals more? Our wills- a desire for dominance, power, grit and glory, or our ability to rationalize- to plan ahead, strategize, contemplate and scrutinize? What is more us, will or wit?

    How would you define pride?

    New way of tackling teleology, ontology?

    How about instead of having a single individual theorize/fantasize/philosophize/lecture someone on the purpose of life, we have a collective answer to the question? I think this is a new way of trying to set a course for humanity, instead of trying to just haphazardly guess where we're going...

    If we were to find similarities with other animals, would ants be the closest?

    Not biologically, but socially speaking. Ants work together and are able to construct structures with huge organization. I don't think any other animals are capable of doing this. Why are most animals solitary? Birds on the other hand are able to travel in large numbers, but they aren't able to...
