Re: The future of antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance is a compromise. When you treat a large enough population of bacteria with antibiotics, a minority of that population will survive, as they have a random mutation allowing them to deactivate the antibiotic/actively pump it out/deny its entrance/affect its binding by changing th...

Re: Favorite math jokes

Might have been told already, but hey, there's 29 pages to search through: A bunch of Polish mathematicians wanted to take a holiday together. They all chipped in, hired themselves a private jet, and jetted off. During the flight, the plane suddenly banked very sharply, and started to nose dive towa...

morality is most likely a set of evolved behaviors that benefit the indavidual by tending to produce stable societys. The fundamental flaw however with morality is that immoral people can out compeet moral ones on the small scale (though morality is selected for sufficiently on the large scale to p...

Re: Reconciliation between Religion and Science

There are questions that have no meaning from a scientific perspective such as "do humans have souls." Religion can have answers to some of these questions, and just because the question is meaningless in terms of science doesn't mean it is meaningless to humans. What qualifies religion t...

Re: Reconciliation between Religion and Science

If you're looking at religion with a scientific eye you're doing it wrong. If you're looking at science with a religious eye you're doing it wrong.

Re: Reconciliation between Religion and Science

I wouldn't say exactly a metaphor, but, as I said, if you look at it from when it was written, then things concerning how the world was made, or if it's flat or not, should be considered as to what was common opinion at the time. Why? If it's the literal, or even the inspired, word of God, you woul...

Re: Favorite Time Signatures

I played a piece once many years ago in an orchestra, the name escapes me. The time signature was 9/8, but almost every bar was split into different groupings, with none of them 3+3+3. I don't think we ever played it at a concert, mostly because the conduct just hated trying to conduct it.

Re: Medical question - suggested remedy?

Have a look at this study. It show that by giving patients an opioid receptor antagonists, the placebo effect could be negated. Therefore endogenous opioids (endorphins) must play a large role.
