I am not asking here about what is good or bad. I am talking about our mindset that things have a true or false value. The reason I ask is because I saw a documentary about infinity. It stated that if we had two infinte sets, can we say they are both equal? Example: A = {The set of all numbers} B =...

I would respond with something like "I do not share your beliefs, but as long as your god hasn't cured me, please be aware that I will still have AS and will therefore react differently to certain things."

I picked male, married, had dating problems. The woman I'm married to prefers introverted people over extroverts and macho guys, so that helps.

Actually (you can safely ignore this if you want) there is an extension of the real numbers called the complex numbers, and we c...
