• Why argue, why not love?

    Why do so many argue over doctrine and philosophy? Is it not just to walk away the winner, isn't living by instinct, sight , sound, emotions, intuition, love, meditation, faith. We are all individuals. What is true to you may not be true for someone else ( see Paul's analogy of meat eating) isn't what... show more
    Why do so many argue over doctrine and philosophy? Is it not just to walk away the winner, isn't living by instinct, sight , sound, emotions, intuition, love, meditation, faith. We are all individuals. What is true to you may not be true for someone else ( see Paul's analogy of meat eating) isn't what counts loving uplifting and caring for your fellow creatures ( as unadulterated instinct leads us to do) and being glad of the universe and it's beauties. These count way more than doctrine ( see the parable of the good Samaritan) I'm convinced that arguing over philosophy is just an egotistical pastime entertained by people with superiority complexes. It's a waste of time because it's just opinions. Universal truth however, cannot be disclaimed. You are born with everything you need to be a full wonderful human. We are one. Who needs doctrine/ philosophy? Please. If your one of those pompous self inflated so called " intellectuals" then kindly miss me as I have posed no argument just a question. I desire words of wisdom not " intelligence" for some dogs are wiser than some people

  • If the big bang is how the universe came to be, then what caused the big bang?

    Best answer: Who knows

    but that is not evidence "goddidit" unless somebody has evidence it was

    Until you get evidence to support an answer then "I dont know" is the default answer until you get that evidence

    you think "goddidit" ?- then where is your evidence?

  • How did Hitler able to tell who was a Jew and who was not?

    Arent all Jews white and look the same as regular white people? How was Hitler able to look and point out who was Jewish or not? They are the same race that Hitler was trying to create as the master race. You cant just point out a Jew by looking at him as if he was black or asian. How can Hitler tell? Has he ever... show more
    Arent all Jews white and look the same as regular white people? How was Hitler able to look and point out who was Jewish or not? They are the same race that Hitler was trying to create as the master race. You cant just point out a Jew by looking at him as if he was black or asian. How can Hitler tell? Has he ever captured the wrong person who he thought was Jewish? Was Hitler possibly a Jew himself? Why did he want the master race to all have blue eyes and blond hair when Hitler had neither? Is that why he killed himself?

    Best answer: Here are some (legal) sites that offer free online books.

    The Online Books Page (University of Pennsylvania)
    http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu

    Project Gutenberg
    http://www.gutenberg.org

    Google Books (click "Free Google eBooks" after you have done a search to show only the free titles you can read in their entirety online).
    https://books.google.com

    The Internet Archive:
    https://archive.org/details/texts

    HathiTrust Digital Library
    https://www.hathitrust.org

    Europeana (digitized books from European libraries + other material)
    http://www.europeana.eu/portal

    There are also many "specialized" free ebook sites that cater to one particular genre, such as fanfiction, open access textbooks, or early modern English literature. They are easy to find via a Google search.

    All the sites to which I've linked comply with local copyright law in the country in which they are hosted. Except for Europeana, that would be the United States. They mostly contain public domain material, along with other material made available with the consent of the copyright holders.

    Copyright laws vary from one country to another. A book hosted by Project Gutenberg that is public domain in the United States is still copyrighted in Europe if its author died less than 70 years ago. So the onus is on you to make sure that any book you read online or download through one of these sites is really legal in your country.

    Happy reading! Taken together, the sites to which I linked host several million unique books. That should keep you busy for quite some time!

  • Do people still like to read books?

    I have a huge passion for writing, and I was wondering if people still like to read for fun? It would be fun to write a novel sometime in the near future.

  • How can we be proud to be Human?

    We are proud of many things. If we beat our fellow man to win employment, or a promotion, we are proud. If our children succeed in school, we are proud. The list goes on, and in general we are proud of many things that highlight our strength and intelligence, and often kindness and good deeds. And while I, like... show more
    We are proud of many things. If we beat our fellow man to win employment, or a promotion, we are proud. If our children succeed in school, we are proud. The list goes on, and in general we are proud of many things that highlight our strength and intelligence, and often kindness and good deeds. And while I, like most, are proud of things I've accomplished, I believe as a species we are scum. History proves that humans cannot refrain from fighting, torturing, murdering, along with countless unthinkable evil acts. We are driven be selfishness, wrath and cruelty. Sure, we have acts of kindness, but overall, we cannot maintain peace. How can we ever be proud to be what we are?
