I am not atheist.
I believe in god, but only as a moral philosophy.
Well, you did it and I'm laughing.

I am sort of spiritual in some definitions of the word.
But i believe that a complete lack of morals in society would cause chaos, so even if the morals that we, as a world population, are based on a fallacy, which i can neither prove or disprove, but i believe to be true, then these morals are still important, even if the reason behind them is not.

It would be impossible to travel at the speed of light. If youthink about it, if you went onto a spaceship, the sheer mass of it will cause resistence, so the faster you travel the more resistence, therefore reaching the speed of light is an impossible feat.

Photons are generally regarded as having zero mass, which allows their energy to be finite whilst travelling at the speed of light.

I totally agree with you - we live our lives constantly in line with perceptions of institutions and phenomenon whether they are true or not (just look at our govt!!!!)

How can something exist if it has zero mass?

Dont worry it often happens - one becomes disorientated at these clashes of intellectual egos and it is perfectly natural

Exactly. And although we believe that we want truth, truth would invoke anarchy.

This could bring up a discussion about the meaning of the word truth hehe.

If the people ever realise about what's happening around them this planet will be a mess worse than now.

You know anarchy is a model where no state exists and where everyone is truly free - however the negative ideas about it are based on the belief that fundamentally every man is 'bad' and would commit what we could describe as 'crimes' if there are not any laws in place which say it is wrong and that man will be punished for these crimes

No, I don't think so, I agree that everyone is bad by the way, it's the human nature.

i agree. it is impossible to travel at the speed of light without creating a infinate mass and you can't do that because that would create a black hole.
