    So, There's 2 Atheists. Atheists 1 and Atheist 2. Atheist 1 Gets a deal from atheist 2. They meet up with each other and atheist 1 pays atheist 2 for the deal that was made. Soon, atheist 1 realizes he's been conned so brilliantly. Finding where atheist 2 lives, a few months later, he sues atheist 2 for the con game he played and wants his money back. Unfortunalty, atheist 2 can't do that. Atheist 2 claims it wasn't his doing and doesn't know what happened to the money because what happened was done by random chance. The case is dismissed and atheist 1 is sad. What do you think?

  • Do Christians believe in the paleolithic and periods prior to that?

    Best answer: A global majority do, but a small percentage claim that it is a conspiracy by the world's scientists. We call these persons creationists, which is code for imbeciles.

  • I work hard, but my peers don't praise me.?

    Everyday I'm furious at everyone. I can't do the things I love anymore because all I can think is how all my effort is going to waste or that my perception is so warped that I can't even tell what's good anymore so thus what I'm creating is bad and I'm doing a disservice to my... show more
    Everyday I'm furious at everyone. I can't do the things I love anymore because all I can think is how all my effort is going to waste or that my perception is so warped that I can't even tell what's good anymore so thus what I'm creating is bad and I'm doing a disservice to my subjects. I'm an art student. I love art. I love comics. In Highschool, I wrote a 1000+ page novel and have had two agents tell me that it'd be publishable if not for some of the subject matter. I had an art show at the local college. Even then, no one was interested in my stuff. No one wanted to read my book. No one went to my show. When people saw my art on display, they didn't say anything. I'm at the end of my first year of college now. I've had an art show offered to me next year. I've made cash off my art. But in my class, I was never praised during critiques. I'd show my art and I'd get laughed at and mocked. People would say "I can do better than you." I ask for critique and I get insults. People have vandalized my work. I talked to the professor and she said that out of everyone in the class, she believed I was the only one who could make it professionally. She said I had the talent, drive, and work ethic for it. That with all the other students, there were awkward moments. Not with me. We showed our final project. My professor said I was the best by far. She said my quality was professional. But my peers laughed at me. They didn't say anything positive. I can't continue like this.

  • Is emotional pain conducive to artistic creativity?

    Best answer: I believe it is more a byproduct than a source.

    Best answer: I believe it is more a byproduct than a source.

    I recall a story about Ernest Hemingway bristling when a young literary journalist asked him to explain the meaning of one of his stories.

    "Meaning?" Hemingway growled. "Everything I wanted to say is on those pages. It means exactly what I wrote. I can't express any clearer for you."

    I think Hemingway's terse response alludes to a common trait among artists: their artistic expression is often compensation for an inability to otherwise enunciate their heightened passions and sensitivity. And because the nature of art is so subjective, that message is often misunderstood or misinterpreted, leading to a sense of frustration, failure and alienation.

    Think of the emotional pain experienced by stroke sufferers, or the common frustration felt by those in foreign countries unfamiliar with the local language. I doubt many would call those feelings "conducive" to each situation, but would instead recognize both as rooted in the disconnect between thought and the ability to fully express it.

    Too many would-be artists, I believe, fall into the trap that equates artistic merit with addiction and emotional instability and commit themselves more to "living the life" than to their own creativity. Author/journalist Pete Hamill, a celebrated member of a hard-living, hard-drinking generation of NYC writers, often lamented how younger writers seem to glorify alcoholism.

    "My writing isn't a product of tragedy," he once said. "The tragedy is all the things I might have achieved but didn't because I gave into the drinking life."

  • In the movie Harry Potter Half Blood Prince, Dumbledore is able to apparate and vice versa within Hogwarts. Is this true to the book?

    I'm a Potter fan...but I don't think it says in the book "since he is a headmaster, he can freely apparate in Hogwarts.

    I'm a Potter fan...but I don't think it says in the book "since he is a headmaster, he can freely apparate in Hogwarts. In the book..didn't Harry and Dumbledore have to temporarily disable the protective spells around the Astronomy Tower to enter the school? In the film It goes: Harry - "Sir I thought you can't apparate within Hogwarts...?" Dumbledore- "being me (headmaster) I have the privilege..." Why do the filmmakers always change details? Shouldn't they stick to the facts in the book? Anyone who didn't read the book will have the mistaken knowledge that apparition is possible for the headmaster within the castle's walls when it isn't...I would hate to be one of them.

  • Why do christians try so hard to convince everyone that God exists when it doesn't?

    Best answer: Christians are under the belief that he does and thing that by trying to convince you they are helping you. While annoying it comes from a caring place. If you have a life where you are often aproched by religious people attempting to convert you, try lieing and saying you will drop by their church sometime. It is morally wrong, but effective. And make sure not to be rude, they are trying, if misguided.

    So the Protagonist is the most important person in the situation.

    Likewise the word antagonist comes from the Greek Antagonistes, meaning to struggle against.


    The shortened "Pro" coming from Professional actually comes from Middle English, derived from Latin. The orogin is the word Profes, meaning having profressed or made ones vows. In modern parlance that would mean you've made your vow to a job, and work proffesionally.
