TED’s mission statement begins:
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.

Question by Ken: Should I take AP Chemistry or Physics honors? Read details?
So sophomore year i took honors chem and it was ok, I had a B through out the entire year. Since we only have 3 main science classes that we HAVE to take (bio, chem, and physics) but we have to have 4 years of science. Does that make sense??? so should I take ap Chem my junior year? Then just take physics senior year? Thanks!!!

Answer by Tanner
Yes you should. The AP class is very helpful, if you do well on the test you can get college credits and not have to take the class in college.

Question by Deep Thought: A serious question for atheists about death (read details for question)?
We know the brain is made up matter and energy (our thoughts are made up of energy that can measured in the form of “brain waves”, and our brains emit electrical energy) This energy makes up our consciousness (at least I think most people can agree on that).

We know that energy is neither created or destroyed, but it is only changed from one state to another (see law of conservation of energy).

I have heard many atheists say that when we die we just die and we are gone. There is nothing of us left and no after life…our consciousness ceases to exist. So my question is this:

By what mechanics is a persons consciousness completely destroyed at death, and how do you “get around” the laws of conservation of energy?

Please note: I am not trying to convert anyone here, I am just curious if any of you have thought about this and reasoning.

Forgive if me if this question was already asked, I didn’t see it anywhere and maybe some didn’t get to answer it anyway.
Honestly, I just thought of this a half hour ago when I read someone’s question and it made me think about this.
Road Horse™ (Not To Be Cloned) – but in your answer you admit that it does go somewhere? Isn’t this a bit contradictory?
terafloo…interesting analogy, but we can retrieve data from a “broken” computer. Hmmm, I wonder if we’ll be able to retrieve thoughts from a “broken” brain someday ;-)
The Reverend Soleil – LOL..well serve me up and call me a pork chop :-)
Skepticat (UKB Operative) – so in a sense, we do continue on, even if we are worm food :-)
vic91106 – hmmm, I wonder if it would be possible to measure the amount of energy the system that makes of the body brings into it, and then measure the amount of energy expelled. That would be interesting to see.
vic91106 – I’m in agreement. For those who are saying the energy does convert, in that eventually we rot and then the worms eat us, transferring energy to them. I thought about that, and that sounds good, but doesn’t quite work. The worms, and microorganisms break down the matter that is left behind (no longer receiving energy), and convert that to energy. At the point of our death there appears to be a sudden drop in energy contained within our body/brains. As for computer analogies, they are decent analogies, but the problem is we are alive, the computer is a machine (like comparing apples to oranges). So now I’m left to ponder exactly what life is…evidence suggests it isn’t merely a material thing, and it is apparently related to energy (some of which appears to be electrical energy)…pretty darn fascinating. I’m glad I asked this question :-)

When you die the electrical charges in your brain cease to happen.

Question by Reincarnation is a fact: Have you read any of these paranormal books?
RANDI’S PRIZE: What sceptics say about the paranormal, why they are wrong and why it matters
Science and the Afterlife Experience: Evidence for the Immortality of Consciousness
The End of Materialism: How Evidence of the Paranormal Is Bringing Science and Spirit
The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities

I you did, tell me what you think. I’m really considering it!
eri- I disagree. I think a good book can provide evidence of something
If a book is based on FACTS then it can be evidence

Best answer:

Answer by eri
A book isn’t evidence of anything. Anyone can publish a book saying whatever you want. There’s no oversight process to make sure what you’re saying is true. Academic journals have a much higher standard for evidence, which is why you don’t see this stuff showing up in top journals – no one making those claims has the evidence to support them. If those things were real, it would be very easy to prove. No one ever has.

Question by Bella: Which two books should I read from my Honors English summer reading list?
Hi! A while ago, I signed up for an Honors English class and today I was given a summer reading list for the class. These are the four books we get to choose from:

1.) Frankenstein by Mary Shelly
2.) Shane by Jack Schaefer
3.) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
4.) Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

We have to choose two out of the four books to read and write an essay on from the list and I want to ask you which two you think are more interesting from experience. Thank you in advance!

Best answer:

Answer by Zee Leigh
Frankenstein and The Alchemist. They can be a little slow in some ways, but in other ways they will keep you on edge.

I didn’t enjoy Rebecca and I never read Shane.
