Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

So it's just a matter of degree. What do you mean? But should these humanities people go to college to learn about it? STEM people should learn humanities too so they apply STEM ethically. So? So I'm using the common definition. How? Because you talked about why the humanities are unnecessary and s...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

Then why didn't you say that. You were being much to broad. Ok. Anyway, the point is that humanities justify the meaning of STEM and ensure it doesn't do damage. Right, but... they're not. Yeah, technically, but everyone thinks of them that way. And you yourself framed it that way in your first pos...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

Basically, while the humanities have their uses in such a respect, it's more about teaching both scientific literacy and ethical values. Scientific literacy allows people to not subscribe to pseudoscience (like anti-vaxxing or anti-nuclear cucks), and ethics for obvious reasons. Wanting to improve ...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

There is currently a strong push for STEM which I think makes people devalue humanities. However, they both are important for society. The best thing about STEM is that it creates technology that can improve the world. But the reason why we want to improve the world is explored in humanities. Withou...

Re: Is mental illness a useful idea?

No, I am saying that the subjective whims of friends and family are what cause the subject distress and perhaps their mental condition. What do you mean? Right, only if they cause disfunction in social, work, and family spheres, which homosexuality has and often continues to. The definition states ...

Re: Is mental illness a useful idea?

The definition could mean that the psychiatrist and subject determine if this is the case. The definition is vague, but I think that's necessary due to the nature of mental illness. Sometimes this is possible for the person suffering from the illness to do, too, during periods of lucidity. It's alm...

Re: Is mental illness a useful idea?

I understand the definition of mental illness to be as follows: Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in thinking, emotion or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities. The ...

Re: Quitting a raw vegan diet is not failure.

And just because we've cooked for a long time doesn't mean it's good. Cooking is good for food safety (which is pretty much a universal rule). Half of the food poisoning is caused by produce. Someone just died from contaminated raw romaine lettuce recently. "Almost 6 dozen outbreaks traced to leafy...

Re: Do Conservatives Care About Doing Any Good?

I don't think that it does any good to generalize conservatives as a whole. Many of them are selfish individuals and many of them are decent people who genuinely believe that a capitalist system with little or no government oversight will lead to the most prosperity. I think the latter is more comm...
