• What is the purpose of death?

    Best answer: Just like with life, there is no inherent purpose. Intelligence assigns purpose where other intellences don't have to agree with those purposes. Not all creatures of earth die from old age. Lobsters for example, cannot die from old age. They can die from predators, disease, etc, but not old age. The reason is because when cells... show more
    Best answer: Just like with life, there is no inherent purpose. Intelligence assigns purpose where other intellences don't have to agree with those purposes. Not all creatures of earth die from old age. Lobsters for example, cannot die from old age. They can die from predators, disease, etc, but not old age. The reason is because when cells replicate, it's not an exact replication, the telemeres get shorter in most lifeforms, which is a predictor of death. In lobsters, their telemeres are exactly matched and hence no death from old age.

    Best answer: There is really nothing to think of any person that draws a conclusion based on their ability. When it comes to arguing for positions, I find agnosticism potentially the most irrational position there is, depending on what the person means by agnostic. While the technical definition is without knowledge, the usage often hints "possible existence" for pure agnostics, whereas in the combination of atheism or theism often implies a possibility of being wrong. It is the usage of "possible existence" that causes the argument to be more irrational than a position of theism. When a theist argues for existence, they at least believe they have made a reasonable case whereas an agnostic would disagree, otherwise they would be theistic and not agnostic. From this perspective, they view the claim of existence the same as atheists as in they don't see a case made for theism, yet they grant the "real" possibility but based on what? Would we claim agosticism of any other magical beings/creatures? Usually not and for good reason. It is quite easy to claim agnosticism of other life in our universe because our existence allows for this very real possibility. There is nothing "reasonable" to support any "real" possibility and actually arguments that present the concept of God as a square circle, making it possible to know why they are impossible. I cannot fault any person for where they are on the learning curve or the high amount of irrationality involved on this emotionally charged topic. I can also understand the misunderstandings that agnostics have of atheism, not realizing there is no need for agnosticism as a position because atheism covers it. Of course some agnostics use the position to be what they consider a neutral position, when in fact it is a position of "possibility" that shares the same burden of theists to demonstrate why there is an actual possibility of magical super Beings as opposed to magical fairies. There is not a reasonable case to be had.

  • Would an Atheist ask God for help if he was one of the Thailand boys trapped in that cave. During the first 10 days before rescuers found?

  • Why is Christianity so popular when it makes no sense?

    Best answer: Mainly because there is a promise of magic and most christians just make christianity whatever they want to be by cherry picking and not actually reading their bibles. Of course there is irrationality involved.

  • Why are atheist women all feminists?

    Best answer: I suspect this is not always true since feminism is tied to the far left and not atheists are far left. I am personally a conservative atheist. Feminism today is not what it once was, it has become something ugly that many women don't want to be associated with.

  • Is there really evidence for the scientific theory of evolution?

    Best answer: Yes, there is plenty of evidence. In science, a scientific theory is a "model" for how the evidence fits together. What does it mean?

    Best answer: Yes, there is plenty of evidence. In science, a scientific theory is a "model" for how the evidence fits together. What does it mean? It means God or no God, evolution is how we have the diversity of species that we currently have, with most species already extinct. Yes we are mutations. Yes we are animals. Purpose is what an intelligence assigns and what other intelligences don't necessarily have to agree with. So if God assign the purpose for humans to be "soul food" and we are just cattle to God, you don't have to agree with that purpose He assigned. You are responsible for assigning your own purposes in life. The fact that you are alive allows you to do this. If you want a long term purpose, it would be to preserve our species and pass on our knowledge to future generations. This would be true even if we pass on to an afterlife, with or without Gods.

    Best answer: Some men are insecure and it's not just women they get angry or jealous of, it's other men as well. I have always been naturally talented when learning and working with technology and especially when I was younger and new to a company, some of the long time employees would hate that I had far less experience than them but could think rings around them. The more secure men were happy that I could help out with my knowledge and wanted to learn from me. There may be a few men who single out just women but most insecure men at that way with both sexes so I would not take it personally.

    Best answer: I am not even sure what a nothing would look like. One reason there is something is because energy cannot be created. Whatever energy there is, is it. All of existence seems to hinge on energy conversions where one form of energy converts into other forms of energy. Even the Big Bang that produced this particular universe is nothing more than an energy conversion. The interesting part is that the universe is expanding, but into what? Again the answer seems to be into dark energy. I have no idea why energy just exists, it just does. I suppose God believers are in the same boat of not knowing why their particular God just exists, but it does help to eliminate an endless chain of causes where "something" just had to exist. I suppose you could look at it as a known "natural" reason, vs a supernatural/magical reason that is hypothesized.
