I know there's already a religion, philosophy and politics thread but I think that it would be cool to have a thead about interesting ideas in general where people could post a short preview of a theory/idea/view/practice that they think is interesting and then a link to a site that talks more about it. That way if you're bored and want to read something interesting you can just come to this thread.

If this thread actually picks up (which Im not so sure of, considering it's the pit lol) I could make an index on the first few posts of all the ideas and divide it in sections (philosophy, physics, religion, etc)


I'll start with a few:

Berkley's idea of objects

His theory that objects have no more existence than ideas in people's minds.
He talks about this idea in his dialogue between Hylas and Philonous:

Dream Yoga

I posted my theory that Jesus is actually a time traveller from the future in the religion an philosophy thread and no one liked it. It does explain a lot, but I don't actually believe it myself.

Because it's not really the same holiday it used to be. It's not about Jesus anymore, it's about either making people feel awesome or being greedy and wanting a bunch of ish. I actually celebrate Christmas by giving food hampers to poor families. It's a great feeling when kids are happy for corn flakes

But I also asked for a bunch of books for xmas.

And yea, I'm an atheist.

Presents.
Pick flowers not fights.
Make love not war.
Drop acid not bombs.

Why do atheists celebrate Christmas?


Consumer culture has made it popular for people of any creed?

I get yelled at every year when I say I don't want to celebrate it
How I wish, how I wish
That the world, that the world
Had just one
THROAT
And my fingers were around it

more importantly, WHY DON'T WE CELEBRATE HONICA!!!

as most country's are majority christian, then everyone (that lives there) celebrates Christmas, if you haven't realized, its become more than about Jesus. now its about family and sharing and **** like that.

im sure non Jews in Jew land (i have no idea what country its from) celebrate honica... lucky bastards

I have a theory.

In recent years, girls have become more sexually attracted to girl-esque guys. "Emo" guys being the most prevolent, along with "sk8ers". As these last couple of years have gone by, it's only gotten bigger. Girls don't like the manly man/not too girly man too much anymore.

MY THEORY: All girls will eventually turn lesbian.

What we all know as christmas (pretty much everything about it minus jesus) is loosly based on a pagen holiday. Plus its so comercial and is such a big part of our culture that its here to stay regardless or christianity.

Plus do you have any idea how much money companies and buisnesses make of christmas? It isn't going away any time soon.
