    Good And Evil

    "All things truly wicked start from an innocence." Ernest Hemingway This quote is an obsession to me.. Good and Evil are merely concepts created by society to protect itself. And it's because they were made by man that they are subjective, this makes the line between Good and...

    This Post Was Going To Happen At Some Point...Or Was It?

    I'm sure everyone has seen enough of the free will and determinism debates on here. I am just curious what the overall consensus is nowadays. A couple years ago, I would never have thought about this, but since pursuing a minor in Philosophy on top of my Biology and Medical Lab...

    Money, Gold, Words, Action

    If you go down the timeline you may accept that there was a time without money and a time without gold and a time without words. The first human beings have surely talked to each other but they didn't need money nor did they need gold. But true is also that long before any human...

    Your Ying And My Yang Should Do Lunch :)
