About Me:All I can be certain of is that I think. Therefore, I am thoht. This is an intentional misspelling because I simply believe thought should be spelled thoht. It's a palindrome, and suits me. I believe there is no "free" will, but that currently we are "free." I believe that one day we will not be "free." I believe that the Great Filter is centered around this concept, and several others, and am here in an attempt to figure out how to bypass it, or learn how to convince others of uncertainty and doubt in an attempt to lead all of humanity into the future I currently only have the barest shred of hope for. I attempt to cling to hope.
Activities:Music, Games, Philosophy, Debate, Fencing.
Beliefs:In what can be proven with decent enough confidence intervals. I leave myself open to "believing" things theoretically in an attempt to prove them, but realize that the evidence supports another option in the current time.
Books:The Wheel of Time series, the Sword of Truth series, Heechee Saga, many, many more. Generally Science Fiction Fantasy (a title that may not apply to some in the future)
Movies:Infinity War did a fair job lately. Gladiator is great. Other than that, mostly documentaries. However documentaries should also be seen as one-sided and fairly flawed.
Music:I love all music. It is all music to my ears. I usually listen to everything once and keep a small list of musicians that I don't care to listen to anymore. If pressed, Classical, Epic, Trance, Dubstep, or any song that has meaningful lyrics.
Quotes:I have no interest in quotes. Only evidence. The vast majority of quotes are taken out of context or misattributed, or even the wording is changed. Take them with a grain of salt. One who uses too many quotes and uses too little of their own ability to think will not gain my respect.
Sports Teams:Not into Sports.
TV Shows:TV shows are mostly dull. 13 Reasons Why is fair, some others are interesting lately, but drama, while entertaining, is not that interesting for debate.

Each year more than 115 million animals, Counting only vertebrates, Are subjected to experimentation with the supposed purpose of benefiting human beings. This includes practices such as forcing them to inhale toxic gases, Apply corrosive substances to skin and eyes, Infect them with HIV or remove part of their brains. Certainly, The number of nonhuman animals that suffer and die because of these practices is much less than that of those who are victims of the food industry, Or of individuals in...

Should Assisted Suicide be Legal?

lsdantzer333
Thoht

Assisted suicide should be illegal as people shouldn't be helped to die. If they are in pain or suffering they can be treated for it. They have pain killers and other drugs that can keep them from suffering. I also believe that doctors shouldn't be allowed to kill their patients. Doctors or physicians should be helping and preserving lives instead of taking them....
