Question by No Name.: How did us humans get all this kind of knowledge?
People talk about things like ghosts,aliens,and other mystic beings(Like Bigfoot,Mermaids,The Jersey Devil,etc…) and yet now people cliam they are actually seeing all of them around.Since thats the case,i was wondering if they weren’t actually lying,and we got investigators(LIke Destination Truth,TAPS,PRS,and other investigators/researchers finding it out for themselves.Would this be a good but funny reason why a lot of us know all this.

Answer by Linds
Most people “know” by experience, others are nonbelievers because they never have experienced it.
I was never a believer in ghosts until I actually saw one.
We don’t KNOW anything about any of it, we just chose to believe or not.

Question by King of Chaos: Why do we hold so dearly to the myth of humans as stable entities?
Why does the West like to view human bodies as a bounded and clear-cut separation between the self and the world, when in reality all sorts of things enter and exit our bodies (food, waste, sweat, even lotions). Why do humans shudder at the breaking of the fantasy of the bounded body that occurs when humans vomit or when bones stick out where they shouldn’t? And how come this metamorphosis (or grotesque, which refers to bodies exceeding their boundaries) is feared by the West instead of seen as something magical, when the same process of boundary breaking occurs constantly in the natural world?

Question by Becca: If we were to clone humans how would genetic modification work to create the ‘perfect being’?
What would be the steps to modifying the cells? How would we go about it? In simplistic terms if possible.
Sorry I worded that awkwardly- how does genetic modification work?

Best answer:

Answer by Wise Duck
In short: we can’t.

There is no way to modify genes in a human embryo. We can insert new genes with a viral vector, but we can’t control where they go.

In contrast we can use homologous recombination to swap out genes in mice zygotes. This just doesn’t work in human cells.

Question by Desiree: Is it more a case of humans being susceptible to superstition rather than a naturally superstitious nature?
There is a subtle difference between these two states, I think. You know, we’re not naturally superstitious meaning that if we never learn anything superstitious, we never naturally become superstitious. But if we do learn something superstitious, then we are quite susceptible to its influence. Do you understand what I’m saying here? And religious people, admit it; superstition and religion are two sides of the same coin.

Best answer:

Answer by Zack
I think no matter what if you here of something superstitious humans will be naturally superstitious that’s how we are. We are curious beings

Answer by Ford Prefect
Mahayana is the “Greater vehicle” of Buddhism and as such accepts that all beings are capable of earning good karma and of getting nearer to a state of liberation.
