• Do some atheists not think outside of the box because they assume there is no outside of the box?

    "We have no box to limit our thinking" Yes you do. You are limited by the assumptions of science. There are things science can't prove and there are things you can't know. You, just like any other human. have to take a position of faith. If science can not prove if God does or does not exist and science is the only thing you can... show more

You, just like any other human. have to take a position of faith. If science can not prove if God does or does not exist and science is the only thing you can use to determin your reality then you are limited by the assumptions of the scientists and you have to trust they are always giving you accurate information. "We have all of reality." Really? How do you know? and how can you be sure if you can not be absolutley sure of anything? You "think" you have all of reality and that is why you are unable to think outside of the box.

  • Why are Americans so against ObamaCare?

    Although 59% of Americans polled in a Washington Post survey are in favor of ObamaCare, that still leaves 41% who are against. Why are these 41% against providing affordable health-care for the poorest and most vulnerable in their society -I thought America was proud to be a Christian country -what am I missing?

    whilst answering an emergency call!! WTF? Godfrey Smith, a 64 year old NHS Ambulance volunteer has been sacked for doing 33 in a 20mph zone whilst responding to a call of a collapsed male struggling to breathe http://metro.co.uk/2013/09/11/999-ambula... He seems to accept that he was wrong but I don't see how? He allegedly broke the law which "he is not permitted to do" according to the NHS trust that 'employed' him but I don't understand what the problem was here? He was responding to a 999 call in a marked vehicle, he's a first responder so I presume he's expected to arrive at the scene first so why is he not allowed to do more than the speed limit to get to an emergency? Someone please clarify what has gone on here because it seems absurd, although Mr Smith seems to now realise that he was in the wrong but how was he? Is he meant to do 20mph in a 20mph zone when trying to respond first to an emergency situation? So basically because he is a volunteer (or was) despite being a first responder he is meant to sit in traffic and obey the speed limits for the area? Why was he in a marked high visibility vehicle then? He may as well have been driving his Ford Fiesta then

  • Why do some people think classical music is boring?

    I've heard people say that classical music is just 'boring' and 'has no life to it'. Personally I love classical composers such as Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven and I refuse to accept that their music is 'boring' when, in fact, it is very intense. What do you think?

Since i am mixed race myself i don't like this. Then he went on to say the parents of the mixed race child are abandoned by their communities and cultures because they are embarrassing the community, i am so upset, i feel like crying. This "HelloThere" guy has been replying hatefully against mixed race people and he's been on here for a long time i see. Why are the yahoo answers allowing him to post so much hate. I know naming and shaming will get me reported but i am so upset right now. @Fry-day: phew, reading your answers from previous question, i thought you were a racist, nice to know your not.

I know have a understanding of how long the package will take but not on the additional charges... Can someone please explain the laws on customs and handling fees. I have these links: http://www.royalmail.com/customs-informa... http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/inte... but i still don't understand if i will have any fees to pay, and if so.. how much roughly will i need to pay? Item Information: A CD considered rare. Hard to find. Won (luckily) in eBay Auction. Price was US $48.00 including $7 for shipping. Approximately £29.86 including £4.34 for shipping (all together: £34.20) I had no idea charges would occur (or if i am going to have charges), i'm so confused. The ebayer has been payed and the item has been shipped... what happens now... i don't know. Please explain >.< Also i have been reading alot about this... what is VAT? Thanks Dave. Really good help.... (sarcasm)
