@user dENd: , xXPikachuXx, EpicCrisis, Tau: My point isn't that we should become a bunch of mourners. The story is very emotional mainly because of the sequence of coincidences and the ending "Do you believe in Angels or God?" / "I do".

I don't even have birthday and writing a title in capital letters is stupid. closed.
This was wrote in mrlightcorn's thread "Happy birthday, DC!". So that means that DC does not have a birthday?

I do not. We humans bear the final responsibility on this planet, and while we should strive to a position where we can save ourselves from death, there is nobody we can rely on to do that for us.

Other than that, I do not consider a human born with an eventually fatal disorder evidence for any kind of mighty, superintelligent and benevolent being.

Quoting myself:

If I were trying to manipulate a large audience into believing a story I wanted to tell them, that'd be my course of action.


Now I know what the motivation behind this is.

@user Tau: The story is true. He died and over 1500 people were at his funeral, or do you think that he's in front of the computer, with one hand on the hamburger and the other one on the mouse laughing at us?

Even if the story itself is true (which I am ready to believe), it could easily be instrumentalized to promote a propaganda, which is anything but unlikely, taking the things that I stated above into account.

That, of course, depends on what you call an emotion and what else you are talking about when talking about human minds.

By emotion, i mean any and every feeling ( other than ones generated by physical means, such as touch, hearing, sight, etc ) we have. Without interest, would we want to push past the galaxy barrier and into the wide unknown? Without fear, would the Cold War have started? Nope. Nothing would have EVER been done by humans that could be considered an achievement if it were not for emotion.

Now you say emotions are "feelings" (whatever that should be) that come from the inside, without direct connection to physical events outside the body.

No, you don't score a point for that. This doesn't answer anything about emotions.

If you want to say that everything within us with the exception of our senses is responsible for everything we humans ever do, then you're trivially right, but that's not a sound (meaningful) argument.

However, my point from above (how humans high on emotion act irrationally) still stands.

A religious propaganda, as the educated reader might have guessed.
