Question by Shannon W: Riddle me this…if we were made by a creator, who created the creator, and who created them, and so on?
I’m torn on this subject. I stand on a line between creation and evolution, often opting for a blend of the two. Its a bit of a paradox for me. I have a hard time believing that we evolved from microorganisms, but then there’s this creator question. At some point you have to say that something came from nothing, and its very trying going round and round in this circle. Your thoughts?
Please no nasty comments from you antireligious folks, I consider myself agnostic for the time being, with no formal religion, and I don’t need anyone to try to prove anything to me, so keep your nasty comments to yourself please.
All you open-minded folks, please share your thoughts.
thank you all for your great answers!!!

Question by : Gender and sexuality studies in relation to science. Please help me figure out how to combine them?
I love science and would love to have it geared at a specific topic of study
i love biochemistry and neuroscience the most
Is there a way i can use science to study things such as gender, sex and sexuality
Maybe genetics? Idk
I want to take courses and have a job that involves science but science that reveals or works to discover things about gender and sexuality
so think more in terms of genes or brain chemistry rather than psychology or sociology

please and thank you!

Not sure about sociologists, but many psychologists today rely on brain studies in their work, so don’t knock out some research just because it was carried out by a psychologist. Most studies that focus on a part of the brain involved in a certain activity use PET (positron emission tomography) scans, which can take minutes to capture a single image. In terms of sex, minutes can be, well, just a few minutes too long. But some studies have emerged in the last decade or so, some also making use of a technique known as fMRI.

Check out a 2003 study by Serge Stoléru, a neuroscientist at Pierre and Marie Curie University in France (see second source). They showed a series of pictures and films, including erotic and ordinary ones, to 15 men in an experiment. They scanned their brains during the viewing of the pictures and movies. In general, there was a definite difference in the brain recruitment between men who had “ordinary” sex lives and those who suffered from a condition that makes them experience sexual desires and fantasies much less than average people. Is that the kind of research that you’re interested in. Maybe a trip to France is in order. :-)

Generally, we know in the brain, sex and the sexuality response seem to be located in the temporal lobe, which is too big a site to say we know much more about it than we did before we knew the temporal lobe was involved. Specifically, the amygdala seems to put together the emotional response, and the hippocampus takes care of memories (associating sights and smells with past experiences). Also, some studies have also revealed that higher centers (those normally associated with understanding other people’s intentions) also kick into gear.

Question by Artisticat: If a NECROMANCER were real, or even asking about them in books and games, what GOOD could they bring?
I’ve only read of the destruction they can bring, and I am unsure if there is any good that could come from necromancy.
Xenon and Romantic… That’s not exactly answering the question. You fail. :( Thanks though.

Best answer:

Answer by XenonVortex BlackOp Death Eater
Usually they’re portrayed as evil sorcerers who do all kinds of creepy dark magic like raising dead corpses and that sort of stuff. By definition, a necromancer is usually involved in dark magic, so I’m not sure how there could be a “good” necromancer.

EDIT:

Oh really? Well, then excuse me, I’ll try again if that wasn’t good enough. All I’m saying is that it’s described as the “blackest of black arts”, so nothing good would really come out of it. Unless, they summon spirits to give messages to people. And to be fair to Romantic and I, your question is kind of confusing. Not all necromancers are destructive, some of them make a profession out of communicating with summoned spirits and that sort of thing.

Question by Morgan: Spots after a mystic tan, any way to rid of them?
I had a mystic tan done today and have had some spots show up. Is there any way to make these go away? They look very odd in my dress I need to wear for next week!

Best answer:

Answer by Tillie
If they are dark spots, it could be from having too much of the tanning agent in one spot, it happens sometimes with Mystic. In that case, try exfoliating the are with a rough wash cloth or puff. Be sure moisturize to keep from having any dry areas. Dry areas will look uneven compared to the rest of the tan.

Question by : Science- physics grade 11 … plz help with these 2 questions … cant solve them?
1) An ice skater pulls three small children, one behind the other, with masses 25 kg, 31kg, and 35kg. Assume that the ice is smooth enough to be considered frictionless

a) find the total force applied to the train of children if they reach a speed of 3.5 m/s in 15s
b) if the skater is holding onto the 25kg child, find the tension in the arms of the next child in line.

2)A 64 kg person is standing on a scale in an elevator. The elevetor is rising at a constant velocity but then begins to slow, with an accelration of 0.58m/s(squared). what is the reading on the scale while the elevator is accelerating?

Best answer:

Answer by Martin A
a) The train has a total mass of 91 kg. For them to reach the speed of 3.5 m/s in 15 s, they must accelerate by about 0.233 m/s^2. Multiply this by the mass, and you have a force of about 21.2 N.

b)
The child’s arms are being used to accelerate the two children behind it. Together, their mass is 66 kg. In order to accelerate them by 0.233 m/s^2, the force on them must be about 15.4 N. This means the tension in the arms of the 25kg child must 15.4 N.

2)
Since the man is in a frame of reference accelerating downwards by 0.58 m/s^2, to account for that, you must add an upwards pseudo-force of 0.58 N/kg. Since the man has a mass of 64 kg, his weight must be 628 N (assuming g=9.81 m/s^2.) However, adding the upwards pseudo-force of 0.58 N/kg subtracts 37 N from his weight. Therefore, the force he applies on the scale is 591 N, and the scale will read 60.2 kg.

Question by FluxofChaos: How can we break the spell that the democrats have over impoverished African Americans? Do liberals use them?
Isn’t it obvious that liberals want to keep them poor and give them handouts to keep their voter base?

How can we break the spell and draw them towards smaller government and conservative values?

Best answer:

Answer by itsme6922
by letting them know they can have all the guns they want under Republican rule and live in trailer parks their whole lives and spew hatred against a govt. they love but could care less about them….that should work…..
