Interested in engaged discourse and exchange of ideas and information.
Some exemplars of heated, yet informative discussions:
*Is the world becoming more peaceful and if so, why?
*Does G+ have a distinct culture of civility and if so, why?
*Is fructose bad for you and if so, why?
*Is the use of eponyms bad for science and if so, why?
*What would a day without science look like?
*Who is best at spending money? Governments? Individuals?
*Is religion enriching life and if so, how?
*How do you come to terms with the mistakes you made?
*Can suicide be rational and if so, was it in this case?
*If science is under attack, is it worth defending - and if so, how?
*Is fracking a viable solution to our energy woes and if not, what else can we do?
I a nutshell, I want to understand things (Bloom's taxonomy nonwithstanding), and use this understanding to inform positve change.
