Neither exist in a vacuum. At least not when it comes to humans and our brains. Emotions is just an idea/word that describes a certain range of human feelings that are loosely and roughly shared amongst us and loosely categorised and given labels. Logic is the term/idea given to reasoning/systems that adhere to a more strict principle/proposition of validity. So an attempt to reflect reality. Emotions tend to be more subjective and an expression of ones feelings, and can be true to that individual, its not an attempt to propose a fact about reality.

The tricky parts come in with peoples abilities to articulate and express logic and emotion, but also peoples ability to understand and appreciate those expressions as well. Communication is important with both ideas.

Another issue is people, generally overestimate how logical they are and greatly overestimate how emotional they are. Often, people will look down on emotions, because of the implication of lack on control, willpower, and the subjective influence and nature of emotions. Emotions don't change maths equations answers, however ironically many peoples negative attitudes towards emotion, can come from emotion or similar (ego is another variable that can be a strong factor) and many people lack the self awareness or competency to actually live up to the idea of how logical they are.

That being said, I tend to like logical people more than emotional people... but they have to actually be a logical person. Legitimately logical individuals actually tend to be emotionally receptive and considerate as well, and expressive. They just know when one os more appropriate than the other.

Doesn't need to have a point in order to exist for the sake of discussion. I mean, I even generally agree with that sort of sentiment. Fictional characters exist and spring forth from a writers imagination. They take on sort types of objective form... the same way random doodles do... they are given a bit more weight, as part of a business/franchised medium that has a partial goal of delivering 'consistency' and 'canon' but even then its all fake and not bound to reality. Imagine random online people arguing about random things your imagination cooks up and trying to make objective claims about them, when you can change your stance on a whim.

That being said, people discuss and enjoy talking about all manner of ideas that aren't bound or consistent with reality. Planet sized cyborg lion vs 100 Moon sized Polar Bears with laser eyes, for example.

I also remember him saying that Thor would still beat Superman in a fight despite Superman being stronger. Makes you think huh. I find some of his stories good, like his art a bit more than his writing. You shouldn't bother with any comics though, they are dumb and useless. Better to read a real book, like the thesaurus.

@renchamp: Thanks!

The user (or their new alts in question) went on to post a bunch of troll comments, swearing incoherently and talking about useless woman are, so thankfully I could just ban them outright, instead of being skeptical about their behaviour.

@renchamp: Hey there Renchamp.

Do you remember a user named XxX_SertSokucu_ and who they are an alt of/why they were banned? They have an alt and seem like the type to create more alts but none show up at the moment.

Thanks.

Anyone familiar with chuggachugga170? They showed up as an alt of BalancedTruth, who if I recall has quite a few alt accounts that have been banned. After I alluded to them being connected, they don't show up anymore, but pretty sure they are the same person, using VP's and they just got lay/forgot.

No mod notes, so maybe they are a decent user, but just for future reference if they seem suspicious/shady.

There isn't really one, if their were, that'd make things a whole lot easier and simpler for people who plan on being in fights. For each person, they are going to have natural strengths and weaknesses, and with training, you can have a general goal on improving strengths and eliminating weaknesses, and then you can get into more specifics. So it really depends.

The above qualities, well it also depends, whether we are speaking of a person possessing them at average for a fighter, but they will excel at one, or whether its a person who has them but not in an advanced way, very minimally and they have one thats higher/decent, since the higher their general competency, the less one matter, depending... basically it depends.

@sc:

I would say that the descent is not random or an accident.

Some view abiogenesis the same way, just that we don't have as much understanding, knowledge to make a robust scientific theory around it. Usually when I see people who view abiogenesis as a naturalistic process, they don't describe it as being random or an accident. Usually those terms are used to undermine the idea, because intuitively, the idea of life randomly popping up somehow like an accident sounds silly. The alternative though... well we experience that a lot, from when we first become aware. It also requires a bit of effort to adequately understand the ideas attempting to be communicated, which can lead to miscommunications and or misunderstandings.
