There is no true opposite to any living and inanimate existing object

Daniel_Nemes
vi_spex

Let us begin. Left and Right, are they true opposites? No. Left is a direction, and so is Right, therefore they cannot be true opposites. They share a common trait which mean that they cannot oppose the other perfectly. Additionally, my belief is that the true opposite to anything is simply: nothing. Anything that can have an "opposite" is existing, therefore the true opposite is non-existence. Ergo, a theoretical "opposite world" does not exist, because our world is existing. My theory appli...

    Science is the best explanation of us and God isn't

    JordanCJKM
    gryephon

    As an atheist, and with the people that do not believe in God, we think that science to any extent is the best explanation of what we came from, how we grow and what we should or should not do. Science brings us the best, natural information by what is given from nature. Science respects the laws of nature therefore obeys the laws of nature. We do make up theories like any other religions. For every religions out there, God is defined as the ruler of the universe and source of all moral auth...
