Best answer: Because it's a reminder of how fleeting all our endeavours are.

Best answer: Apparently you're unaware of the fact that squirrels will eat anything that can't run fast enough to get away from them.

Best answer: Yeah, I think so.

Best answer: WE make our chances with our choices.

Best answer: Life is a puzzle. And each one of us is the final piece in that puzzle. Just as the puzzle is completed by our incorporation into its structure, are we completed by the puzzle. Both the puzzle and the final piece work together as a single entity. We exist inside our own model of the universe being it’s final piece... show more

Best answer: It is scary to consider those things. And we don't have the answers. A lot of people find comfort in religion. But whether it's god's plan or the plan of some other designer, it does appear to be the plan that things are as they are and that we come then we go. Nothing for it, so might as well just... show more

Best answer: She likes to breathe so I go commando most of the time, when feasible. That way I can take more gambling money, pamphlets on why we're under reptilian rule and my sparkly collection of pet rocks. Yay!

Best answer: If you live with them, move out. Visit as often as comfortable and concentrate on discussing other topics.

Best answer: Objective morality does not exist. Morality is a fluid social construct, and it evolves as the common views of the society evolve. 150 years ago, it was moral to own slaves. 75 years ago, it was moral to beat your wife. 50 years ago, it was moral to drink and drive.

In the "can't prove a negative" argument, one just takes a contrarian view of another's claim, labeling their... show more

Best answer: There is no free will. We are not free to do as we please. all our actions have consequences.

This is why... show more

Best answer: Their most common one is " There's no evidence for God " Which is not a syllogistic argument,but an assertion. It's also, 1. irrational, because you'd literally have to hold all data in the universe to make this claim ( They don't ) And 2. It assumes a naturalistic epistemology as the... show more

Best answer: You could say pleasure and pain are the only base emotions. Apathy would be an absence of pleasure or pain, and not an emotion itself. Then all other emotions are variations or mixtures of the two base emotions. Tranquility could be a little pleasure and an absence of pain. Love is a bit fear of being... show more

Since you are your thoughts, you can't actually stop them, because that would involve another thought and the past. But it's seeing this entire problem and... show more

Best answer: It is the responsibility of each person to give their life purpose.
