  • Why so many "end of the world" predictions failed?

    Religious predictions are intuitive guesses. Even scientific guesses fail in many cases. Let us consider a simple case. You have a million Dollars in a bank account. You are only spending and not crediting any money. If you take your average monthly expenditure, you can calculate that the amount will be over in, say, X months. But there... show more
    Religious predictions are intuitive guesses. Even scientific guesses fail in many cases. Let us consider a simple case. You have a million Dollars in a bank account. You are only spending and not crediting any money. If you take your average monthly expenditure, you can calculate that the amount will be over in, say, X months. But there can be some heavy purchases, and your scientific prediction may fail. Can science predict earthquakes or hurricanes? Can medicine predict end of a human life? What I want to say is that an exceptionally large number of persons are predicting that the end is near. How near it is - will it be in one year, ten years - no one can be accurate. Remember that end of the world is philosophically the most complex and complicated topic. What are your views on this?

  • Do these lines still have a meaning or purpose?

    The following lines are translated from a medieval text written in India: "When you go beyond wealth, life sets you free. Beyond wealth lies a relationship with life. You set on to discover the undiscovered." Your comment please.

  • Why there is no single engineering book written by a woman?

    Why most of the science inventions are by men only? Modern psychologists accept the existence of more than one faculty of mind: "Our two minds .... One is an act of the emotional mind, the other of the rational mind. In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels" (Daniel Goleman, Emotional... show more
    Why most of the science inventions are by men only? Modern psychologists accept the existence of more than one faculty of mind: "Our two minds .... One is an act of the emotional mind, the other of the rational mind. In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels" (Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 1996, page 8). This rational mind is also called the faculty of logic and reason. http://www.funderstanding.com/content/ri... Emotion has usually, in the European- American tradition, been seen as the opposite of reason; the definitions provided in the Oxford English Dictionary emphasize emotion as agitation, perturbation, and feeling or affection — as distinguished from cognitive or volitional states of consciousness. Philosophically this split became entrenched through the thought of Rene Descartes, with his famous ‘I think, therefore I am’. Emotion has thus come to be associated with the body the way reason has been associated with the mind. http://www.answers.com/topic/emotion Women more likely than men to put emotions in motion http://www.vanderbilt.edu/News/news/june... http://www.oregoncounseling.org/ArticlesPapers/Documents/DifferencesMenWomen.htm The rational mind is connected with engineering. That part of brain works dominantly in men.

  • Did ancient European Aryan tribes enter India and created Indo-European race?

    Despite the propaganda of Adolf Hitler and the posturing of white supremacist groups in the United States, the true Aryan nation is to be found not in the woods of Idaho but in the words of ancient India. The word Aryan comes from Sanskrit, the sacred and carefully preserved language of the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. Arya, the Sanskrit word, is not a racial designation but a term of respect, meaning "excellent, worthy, honorable, noble" or "lord, master, friend." Before a person's name it is used like "Sir," as in Aryaputra or Aryakanya. Sanskrit is of great interest to linguists and historians, because it is the oldest preserved language of the Indo-European family. http://www.answers.com/topic/aryan "Early Humans Settled India Before Europe, Study Suggests" Their model begins about 250,000 years ago. Meanwhile in Africa, modern humans arose about 190,000 years ago, most archaeologists believe. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/... Scientists proved that all Asians, who constitute more than half of the world population, originated in India. http://www.2point6billion.com/news/2009/... http://article.wn.com/view/2009/12/11/Genetic_origin_of_Asians_traced_to_India/ Indian maternal DNA is generally similar right across the country indicating that the mass of population has been in place there for a long period. It was also found that the Haplo group R1a gene previously associated with Indo-Europeans is also found in significant amounts in certain tribal populations, and may have originated in India.

    If members of a parliament make a lot of noise, not allowing a resolution to be made, then the situation can be figuratively called "a parliament of crows". In Swedish, it's called "kråkriksdag", which is roughly translated as "crow parliament". Old folklore told of groups of crows essentially holding court over members of their flock that had committed offenses. If they decide against the "defendant" crow, then the rest of the flock swoops down on it and kills it. This is usually referred to as "murder of crows". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_C... What other meanings can there be?
