Ok, let's say the man has cancer that needs to be operated on or he will die. He knows that he has cancer, yet he tells himself that he doesn't and he goes to Las Vegas to gamble. He collapses in Vegas, is taken to a hospital there, and, while unconscious, is operated on by the best oncologist staff...

Not at all. The person in question can panic, can commit suicide, can drive away in a car, all of which would be relevant to his ability to live. And my point is that having the most accurate knowledge of his condition might actually be a detriment in that very moment, whereas positive visualization...

No, but I can give you the following example: Imagine a patient undergoing some elaborate brain surgery that only has a success rate of 10%. Now, it would benefit that patient if he is not panicked therefore there could be some benefit to the patient willfully ignoring knowledge of the odds and simp...

The scientific method is a tool by which we can verify, through experiment, the validity of our hypotheses. By use of the method we can learn about the universe. In that respect the scientific method is a tool and does indeed "work" despite the nit you pick. Regarding lies, I agree that ignoring rea...

Hi Paris! :-) <b>You wrote:</b> <i>So now I tell her everyday how much I love her, and even on phone conversation, etc.</i> Abusing the use of "I love you" much?

Hi dkane75! :-) I've not studied Heidegger or the continentals generally as I've found the analytic tradition I've had capable of framing and resolving internal disputes about various topics that are covered by philosophers. Some initial questions then. In your opening paragraph you equate conscious...

Hi Ms. Paris! :-) Question 1. Is homosexuality (or gay marriage) immoral? Answer. We have learned that all morality is based on sympathy, so we must go back to that. Are homosexual actions between two consenting adults harmful to anyone else? Of course not. Do the participants consider it harmful to...

Hah, I have no problem with infinity. The curvature of space/time implies a Universe that is both finite and infinite. As I said, you could travel forever and never reach an "edge of Universe." Anyway, that makes sense to me. Your attempts to create uncertainty have already been accounted for when I...

Hi Britishk, I'm sorry, but your alternative explanation of a bounded Universe requiring something "outside" causes an infinity. In other words, if there is something outside the Universe, why would it not have boundaries also? And if it had boundaries, wouldn't your alternative require something el...
