Others in fact are entitled to have opinions about your opinion. What are you going to do? Force them to think otherwise? No. That would be oppressive, not to mention arrogant to think your opinion cannot be questioned or opinionated upon. You hold that same right too, not just others. If you don't want others to have opinions of your opinions then you might as well not voice your opinion.

Really? How hard of a surface is your skin that a xxx would break upon impact?

You don't realize how much thought went into carefully wording that question.

Say the xxx is made out of glass like a pint used for drinking beer surely the xxx is hard enough to kill someone. Glass is really hard, harder than steel, only downside to it it's that it's brittle.

I meant as you probably will be knocked out or even killed if the xxx is thrown at that speed assuming it is thrown at your head. See my point how it would not make a difference in both cases you might die except in one someone is ruining a perfectly useful xxx.

The xxx would have to be thrown really fast in order for it to break in which case it would not make a difference what you are pelted with the xxx or a stone.

It is our intelligence that sets us apart from other species. We might not have the ability to regenerate limbs but we can sure put it back on with the proper knowledge. We may have to use weapons to hunt but it's only because we learned to. Our advantage over other species is our intelligence and our thoughts, remove that and we are completely useless and defenseless. If you take away our tools, so what? We can make more. If you take away our intelligence then we are of same if not more inferiority than any other species on this planet. Other animals might have evolved physically, but we evolved where it matters most, mentally. Abstract thought is something we have that makes us unique and quite possibly superior. We can love and hate, envy and appreciate, aspire and achieve. Don't say "oh, only some of us have accomplished greatness the rest of us can't take responsibility for the achievements of others thus making us equal or inferior to other species." True we can't take credit for other's accomplishments, but we sure can try to replicate those results something no ape can even begin to fathom.

Not everyone might have these qualities but we are capable of developing them because we have our intelligence to help us. We might need tools to make tools but we are still able to make those tool making tools, something no animal is capable of replicating. I don't understand why this is an issue as a species we will try to survive no matter what. If it came to an ultimatum human life will always be valued over any animal's life. Why? Because we consider ourselves superior to any other living creature to have ever lived on the surface of this planet. Even you, OP, will agree that you rather preserve your own life than that of a mouse. I could give you reasons as to why but I'm sure you have your own, and I'm positive that it would all boil down to because you are better.

In regards to the bookshelf we can at least attempt to build one while a oh I don't know a rhinoceros wouldn't know where to start comprehending what in the world is a bookshelf. Now the gun we can at least learn how to use it; give it to a donkey and try and train it to at least hold it.

I don't really like dancing but even I can appreciate the activity. Not only is it good for your health as a form of exercise but it also a form of expression. Body language says a lot and being capable of expressing oneself through dance is something universal and easily understood in many cultures.

It's harder to be a vegetarian. With meat in your diet it is easier to stay healthy as you don't have to look so hard for your missing nutrients. By sticking only to veggies you put yourself at a higher risk of being anemic which can lead to other health issues.

Besides our teeth and organs prove that we are meant to be omnivorous. Our molars can crush vegetation while our canines can rip through meat. Horses have an enlarged cecum due to the fact they eat so much vegetation and since they aren't ruminants they can't ferment the ingestia within their stomachs like a cow so the cecum takes care of most of the fibrous material. Humans have a small addition to the cecum which is the appendix and it was suggested by Charles Darwin that the appendix was used for digesting leaves as primates. If we shied away from eating so much fibrous food and ate more meat then it is very likely that the appendix was what was left over from years of evolution.

You are essentially the brain itself you don't require limbs to survive someone can feed you. Your stomach can be replaced with an IV, air can be poured into your lungs, and a machine can replace your heart to pump blood. Your mouth is redundant seeing as you are attached to oxygen and an IV eliminating the need to eat or breathe through it. You don't require your eyes to have sight nor your ears to hear to live. Your kidneys can be replaced also with a machine while your excrement pours out of you. Your brain is the main thing required to be you. Its thoughts and memories make you for who you are; you are the brain. You aren't just a shell housing this organ capable of decisions. You are the organ being carried around with your OWN commands. Again you are the brain and are in full control of everything you do.

If you were to go to one of the poles (or close to) say at an 85 degree angle close to the pole, you could actually travel in some kind of human transportation say a plane and circle the globe atop fast enough to actually live in the same "hour" for 24 hours. As the earth spins you could almost be stationary and beat the Earth's rotation and see the sun at the same angle for 24 hours. I would love to do that and become the man that lived in every hour of the day for one entire day each hour.

I see your point, but people can choose to remain uniformed, and thus ignorant about things that they really ought to know. That's what I have a problem with.

When a person decides to stay uninformed they are in fact stupid. Stupidity is seen in a person when they know better yet they do the wrong thing. For example: don't touch the stove because it is hot and you'll burn yourself yet they still do it. The movies Jackass are a perfect example of stupidity.

That's not my opinion, as stated it's proven fact a surprising amount of atheists choose to denounce god because acknowledging him is to fear his power and fear is uncomfortable. The truth is atheists are usually narrow minded **** faces who over compensate with anger. For example, you sound like you are one who is subconsciously fearing religion so you turn a 180 to stay in control. It's sad but understandable. What if you replace "X" with 'The big bang'? Shouldn't it go beyond that then?

I simply don't believe in him because I find the idea of God preposterous. I believe religion is good though. It creates character and morals but I refuse to believe in God. I don't consider myself narrow minded as I actually believed in God without question at one point. I truly believed that this world's beauty was all because of him but then I decided to defy that belief and expand my mind and learn of other ways how life as we know it is truly possible. I don't see that as narrow minded but open to new ideas instead of just believing what my parents taught me and what I gathered from the bible.

Celebrities are just people with fame, and his or her fame is nothing worth sticking with if the person itself is not an appropriate match.
