Media Impact on Teens' Ideas for Their Futures 18 Replies

As a current High School student I know first hand how much kids are expected to plan their lives from a very early age. By 8th grade my home economics teacher had us do a presentation on what we wanted to be “when we grow up” and what college we…Continue

Use the F=ma

“A long time ago in a galaxy far far away" is a lot like saying "once upon a time.” It signals to us that we are heading on a journey that takes place in a different place where we will need to suspend our belief in reality and accept a world of magic, sorcery, and even the belief that George Lucas can still write a Star Wars script. Yet, how much of the impossible must we accept? Is the Force real? Did Han really shoot first? Are we actually seeing the events of a different and distant galaxy? That last one just might be the most fantastical of the bunch. What is more likely is that Star Wars takes place in a different universe, one governed by physical laws that are completely different than our own.

There is nothing more exciting than Luke Skywalker screaming down that Death Star trench,…

An Open Letter to Change

Change is not always a good thing, but there is little we can do about it other than embrace it and move on. I tried to convey that with something personal in this spoken letter. Felt like a good idea at the time. It is not all that often I make videos, be on The Nerdfightersinfo Colab channel (NFi) or on my own channel, let alone a serious one. But once in a while I fancy a change.

This months song July (Take it Down)

I usually try to write pretty happy go lucky music, However do to recent tragic events I wanted to say some things about the uncomfortable topic of racism in America. It is my hope that by having this conversation we can make some desperately needed progress. Thanks for listening.

Attention Atheists and Christians: Read.

Let's get one thing clear. I'm a full fletched  Atheist, agnostic/Atheist that is. I cannot claim that I know for certain that there isn't a God, but I lean towards the idea that no, there isn't. I can see the arguments people make in favour of God, I can see the supposed evidence, but again it is my own opinion that there is no solid argument in the case of god/gods/whatever. One thing that annoys the hell of out me, although, is this superiority complex both sides seem to enjoy. 

For example, if a Fundie Christian were to come out, screaming bible quotes and trying to enforce his faith on me, I'd ruddy well bad mouth said person for thinking he has a higher deck than me. That his knowledge is greater, therefore he feels entitled to give me hell. But what some Atheists forget to remember is, they're in exactly the same boat. …

"I suppose, though that doesn't seem terribly relevant. The more relevant concern, I think, is that in both cases, the negative consequences of the action are too far from certain for the agent to make a decision based on their or potential. The…"

Vertigo_One [Ops Mod] replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion What is the pro-choice response to the following:
"Actually, here's a better way of looking at it. With abortion, the outcome is binary. Either you kill a person, or you do not. With driving, things are far more complex. It's not just a "if you go wrong, you will kill someone"…"

Vertigo_One [Ops Mod] replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion What is the pro-choice response to the following:
"The problem with that argument is that it goes broader. If you cannot decide what a human is at that stage, and it gives you license to do what you want then, what gives us license to decide what a human is at a later stage? "

Vertigo_One [Ops Mod] replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion What is the pro-choice response to the following:
"In my example, the person theoretically knows the risk of aneurysms, etc, so they know that there is a chance that they could kill someone while driving.  They do not think it is likely, though. In the argument presented, the person in the car…"
