  1. Who gets to decide meaning?

    A valued Gardener wrote this statement in an unrelated thread: A failure to see meaning in the question does not conclude that it is meaningless. Agree or disagree?

  2. To Kill an Innocent

    I thought this subject was already brought up before, but I couldn't find it. When, if ever, would it be justifiable to purposely target and kill an innocent person? I'm not talking about collateral damage or acts of war, and would appreciate not dragging the thread down that path.

  3. "The more civilized we become, the less individual liberties we get to keep."

    "The more civilized we become, the less individual liberties we get to keep." This was a quote from a member of another forum. He actually wrote it with an air of "of course, so what?" What say you? **I'd like to add a poll, but that option is apparently gone. **

  4. The Invisible Hand Theory

    Is Adam Smith's grand illusion (delusion is more like it) finally dead in America? I hope so and if its not I believe it is at least dying.

  5. Neoteny

    I came across this while reading around the net on a blog I find quite interesting. I'd like to know what those of you that don't mind a little bit of reading (not much really - I promise) think of it. I'd like your critical opinions. For those of you that may have relatives or friends that...

  6. Basic Evolutionary Theory -- What is it?

    I placed this in the philosophy forum because I'd like Cobert to have a look, and I have the impression he likes to stick to this forum exclusively. His input and scrutiny is important to me. Since the Evolutionists/Creationists thread has most likely gone its course, I'd like to explore this...

  8. Aspiring to be more?

    I hope you don't mind me taking this from that other thread, Bryn, but it intrigued me and I didn't want to take the other one off topic. So my question is: What is it we should aspire to be more than, ourselves? I had another question and lost it. Anyone?

  9. The Hero's Myth

    I didn't either and thats because I'm conscious of the existence and allure of myths, as perhaps you are as well. The Myth Speaking as an American (though other cultures do it as well), the myth is a sacred generational story handed down in order to enshrine ideals and hero's. Sports has...

  10. Where are we going?

    I pulled this from another thread. Carla's sentence which is quoted above assumes a destination. Moving forward to where or what? Is where we are headed a place of rest?

  11. Destroyed Lives

    I'm not arguing with your opinion but I'm interested in exploring this. How do you define a "Destroyed Life?" And assuming a destroyed life would be opposite of a "productive" life: what is a productive life?

  12. Proactive or Reactive - Where does it come from?

    I'm wondering if the above statement is accurate in your view. and secondly, I'm wondering whether or not one or the other is in our genes? Are some of us passive and others aggressive? If it is in our genes, is it possible to overcome either through education or management skills?

  13. Richard Dawkins verses David Sloan Wilson - On Religion

    If you've read Richard Dawkins "The God Delusion" (which I have not) You may be interested in this little exchange between Dawkins and David Sloan Wilson, Author of "Darwin's Cathedral" and "Evolution for Everyone" (of which I have read both).

  14. Sexual Attraction

    What does or has (while it lasted :wah:) attracted you to a mate? I'm wording my post carefully as to not alienate any gay people. Natural selection dictates we are drawn to potential mates based on two criteria 1) ability to reproduce strong offspring, and 2) survivability. Thats it! Getting...

  15. Mystery of Life and Death

    What is it you find mysterious about life and death? For me there isn't much mystery to it. Wondrous, yes - mysterious, no. It is hard work though.

  16. Why human dominance?

    Why do you think it is humans have dominance over the planet? Where did it come from and why us? I'm sure most of you will accurately guess my answer so I won't bore you with a long post. For those who don't know, my short answer to this question is: it is due to our evolution through the...

  20. Aphorisms

    I realized that there's really no 'right' place for this on ForumGarden. there's no 'philosophy' forum, and these fall under philosophy, after a fashion - not specifically religion. but anyway. aphorisms are 'nuggets of wisdom'. typically brief, pithy little bits of information pertaining to...
