    Yes. I consider myself a realist (a little hopeful at times, pessimistic at others). I see things as they are. I'm reasonably well-informed about the things that matter to me. I realize that I don't know everything & I don't hesitate to find out more when I need to. Some things you don't count on & can't really prepare for, so in that sense I suppose I make it up as I go along. But overall, I know who I am & what I can do. I know what's importatn in life & I prioritize accordingly. I'm proud of my accomplishments. I'm following my dreams. I have a pretty good life. Of course, it can always be better & I'm hoping in the coming year to get off my butt, take more risks & strive for better!

    I like to think I have a balanced viewpoint, but I acknowledge my prejudices. I do stay very informed of current events, world affairs, as well as the more light-hearted things going on in this big world of ours. I love it all.

    it somewhat is a sturdy argument for the nicely suited to existence. it is not even mandatory to argue whether or not the youngster is yet a individual and at what degree. The newly formed human existence nevertheless has an attractive to be born and the concept shouldn't ensue without some duty for it. interior the case of rape, the criminal is accountable, however the ensuing human continues to be harmless and desires his existence secure. in any different case, we are different than a helpless individual. The rape sufferer would desire to be secure and the community would desire to be answerable for assisting her if the rapist can not be got here across or held answerable for the youngster's needs and pay for the ensuing wellness expenses of the sufferer (IMO). An abortion would desire to be seen unconstitutional and a denial to the main elementary human ideal, precisely as you mentioned. existence, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And existence is first as a results of fact the others can not be had without it! a tribulation would not be needed if the nicely suited became secure. a tribulation would desire to be held to end an abortion. it may be sturdy for a father or a young person mom would desire to try this in the event that they don't comply with the finishing of the existence of their infant. For the father the trial could be to end a mom from aborting their infant, or the teenager who can not comply with oldsters pressuring her to have an abortion. you would be able to additionally upload the be conscious "guy or woman", to what you mentioned approximately this human existence being separate. that's definatly a human rights difficulty. it is likewise a civil rights difficulty different than the pre-born infant isn't able to march for his or her own rights and want somebody else to talk up for them. in line with risk we would desire to continuously ask ourselves if we are us of a who's unselfish sufficient to try this.

    i dont think ANYONE can have a truly "balanced" and "informed" view on life.

    there is so much knowledge and truth out there. it would be impossible to learn it all and be able to come to anything even close to a balanced view.

    we are all influenced by bias, preconceptions, and certain-centric points of view, no matter how hard we try to overcome them.

    the best thing we can do is acknowledge our shortcomings and strive for greater knowledge in our capacity

    No I am not balanced. I have bias and point of view. I make mistakes, I think god does too. I think my ego gets in the way of my id. I say this because I am out to do my best, that is all.

    No, as a scientist, if I even intimated " making it up as I went along ", peer review would have at me and I would have to take up astrology.
