What is Netalive.org?

Far from the maddening crowds, a place to kick back and lead an intelligent discussion in peace. We respectfully ask the braindeads to stay outside. (New here?)

Best Good All

What is the meaning of Life? Sometimes I believe that we are meant to live only to deal with diversity and overcome it. So why is there diversity, what does it teach us? Do we really learn from our experiences. If we do, does this mean we can change what happens the next time we run into a similar experience? If the aforementioned is true does that mean we have free will? What do you all think about the meaning of life, free will, diversity, and how the interconnect?

Thanks

I have been doing a great deal of thinking lately about creationism/evolution/intelligent design. This was brought about in part by the number of discussions we have had here on the philosophy forum over the past months.

When I received my new cellphone I eagerly set out and bought a handful of Java games, among them the magnificent Alpha Wing. The games arrived through a service message from my provider and played without problems. The world was good.

A few weeks later I had to patch my phone's firmware in order to fix some annoying bugs. In the process I lost every game I bought because purchased games are stored in some super-secure place you cannot (...)

There is little more tiresome than talking to someone only to find out that they don't have a clue about the universal pillars of life, the universe and everything. It is therefore necessary to define a minimum set of knowledge that every citizen must be aware of. The list proposed in this post is by no means complete but should cover the very basics. If you haven't read at least the following you have no business talking to (...)

Hawk wrote about morals and law the other day. Since I don't respect any law just because it exists, that's not really a question to me. No law can ever be rated more important than my own judgement, so my own morals.

But what about a conflict between morals and your own sentimentalities and feelings?

The following is in fact not a scenario, but a situation I'm facing right now. Let me tell you in advance, that I'm (...)
