Because it is the product of the person reading it.

REALLY


For the sake of intelligent debate [I'll assume you know what the word intelligent menas] - PROVE IT


Site at least 10 examples of posts that can be answered 'intelligently' with one word.

Please back up your expositions with clear explanations of meanings and implications.

FAIR ENOUGH


"In the beginnning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God"

- And the rest was History - still searching for the original Word

Depends on how willing you are to just settle on an answer because it's easy and you don't want to be bothered thinking about it anymore.

"What happens when you die?"
"If you were good, you go to Heaven where everything is wonderful forever. If you're bad, you go to Hell, where everything sucks forever."
"Good enough for me. Back to watching TV."

The above is a word despite the fact that one would generally not think of words that way.


Einstein presents we are energy so what specifically should not stop us from considering permutations despite disagreements


We are individuals. Meanwhile at the fundamental levels [subatomic) in some interpretation the worst of us and the best of us is potentially irrelevant at such scales.

Any thoughts?

It's been pointed out that if a thread title ends with the question mark the answer is just about always, "No."

Sometimes simpler is better. Not everyone is well-versed in philosophical concepts such as analysis and explication. Also, when you go too deep into analysis and explication, it can take away from the essence of the topic being discussed.





It is simple....LOVE

It runs completely contrary to the essence of what a forum on philosophy and metaphysics should be.

Who defines what the essence of a forum should be? I would think it would be the people who take their time and giving of their soul to define it.
