Re: Is Computer Science Really A Science?

Sure, then I'd say all CS people/programmers are scientists to different degrees, because programming is nothing but constant hypothesizing and experimentation. It's almost impossible to be a professional programmer and not follow something that resembles the scientific method. This is because the t...

Re: Is Computer Science Really A Science?

What criteria are you using? These?

Predictability and testability
Reproducibility

If yes, then I would say it is a hard science.

Re: Best Methods for Making Passive Income?

Take up programming :D Find any process or service that can be monetized. Automate it and you have passive income.
The amount of upkeep you have to do can be 0, but it depends on the circumstances.

Re: 10 year vegan goes to beef only diet

But looking more into it, I think it's a deliberate attempt at a character assassination, since nearly all dissenting comments have been removed and in the thread the author basically admits to misrepresenting Sam Harris. If I had to guess, the auth...

That's a cartoonish and wrong r...

Re: Libertarianism/ Fun

Libertarianism is one of those terms that's not well-defined, and can be either very reasonable or completely insane depending on how it's used. If libertarianism is "the individual above everything else", then it doesn't make sense to me, since an individual can only ignore the collective for so lo...
