Re: Holodecks: What would you do?

I'd do strange, dreamlike sequences. Swimming in an ocean with no end, no land in sight; you never quite drown, but you're never going to get there. Watching your teeth fall out one by one. Driving a train around a mountain. Being trapped in a spaceship with far too much to eat. Also, if the holo-de...

Re: Does atheism inspire "good" works like religion does?

The problem with the OP's question is that atheism is actually a lack of a belief.

And if there is nothing there, that nothing cannot inspire you. ...
