  1. Books and knowledge; how do we read?

    If you do not already have a strong foundation of a subject, then it is impossible for you to judge if the book is "right or wrong". I like the scientific perspective of looking at things. You learn something new. Later on you realize what you learned was not completely accurate and thus you seek out the more closer truth. Knowledge is always based on starting with other people's views. Every subject from math, science, philosophy, to religion you must learn about what others before learned. Then we build upon that foundation. Probably the only way to know whose views are more valuable in terms of correctness is by judging the content by what you have learned but only if you have a deep understanding of the topic already. Epistemology is the philosophy of knowledge and everything regarding knowledge. And not even epidemiologists all agree on what knowledge is or how to obtain it.
  2. Anyone with ADHD?

    Have you had to deal with any stigma surrounding ADHD? Especially from non-western communities such as Arabs who seem to have a different perspective of psychological problems.
  3. Future of North Korea?

    What could possibly happen is if North Korea witnesses an imminent threat, they would retaliate by throwing everything they have at Seoul, killings tens of thousands. As for uniting with South Korea, I don't see why people of North Korea would want to give up their "land" to join the others. China probably does not want South Korea to become any stronger as well, or want them on their border. The situation in North Korea could probably drag out for many years to come, as the outcomes of any change seem to be very messy.
  4. Daily mail is not a reputable source. http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-evolution-timeline-interactive I think the creature discussed is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multituberculata
  5. Yeah but would people be happy with it? I doubt it will compete with current smart phones in terms of camera quality, app store, and features. I could see older generations going for it who aren't too into the "smart phone".
  6. Anyone here diagnosed with ADHD? What have you done to help you academically?
  7. Almost sure this is fake, you can even find ridiculous shia "fatwas" spread by some western sources. Lets not believe this unless it is verified by a legitimate source.
  8. Coffeegate Dearborn

    We need to stop using "gate" lol.
  9. How to get my wife back >

    You had a feeling that she wanted to leave, and when you brought it up she used that opportunity as an excuse to leave. It seems like she wanted to leave for awhile, and what you told her that night wasn't the reason for her leaving so don't blame yourself. You can force others to have the same feelings you have for them. It hurts when you know that you love the other person more than they love you, but you owe it to yourself to be with someone who actually wants to be with you. With time, you will "get over her". It might hurt for awhile, but all wounds heal eventually.
  10. People should not view Iran as being infallible.
  11. My Antivirus picked up malware on SC?

    For VPN, the most popular option is Private Internet Access. They are very affordable and don't keep logs making them trustworthy. As for firewall, you could also use the one that comes with Windows. It will do just as good as a job as ZoneAlarm without using as much resources on your PC. Consider adding these to your arsenal: SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Ccleaner. Run them like once a week. For browser addons add these: HTTPS Everywhere and ScriptBlock You can get rid of Ghostery because UBlock Origin does the same job. In the UBlock settings, you can activate different types of filter lists. Also, consider adding a password manager such as LastPass. It stores all your passwords and can autofill online login forms for you so makes it easier. It can also auto generate complex secure passwords for you when you signup to sites and you don't have to memorize them because LastPass will know it for you. They offer 2-factor authorization so they are very secure. Lastly, the most important thing is common sense. Avoid sketchy websites and avoid downloading files from sketchy sources. This alone is like 90% of internet security.
  12. What Video Game Are You Playing These Days?

    CIV 6 and titanfall 2 when I have time, which seems like never lol.
  13. Ever drop out of an elective?

    In highschool I dropped out of theater because their was a lot of "touching". Teacher was cool with it, didn't have any issues. If you are in college, you probably wont need to give a reason. Just say the class isn't for you and that you would drop it rather than keep the class and fail it.
  14. Evolution?

    Evolution just makes sense. We see evolution in viruses when they develop resistance to our vaccines, and so we are constantly changing the vaccine for it to be effective. Look at the example above. Look how all these different animals have the same bones in the same order and #. This is called divergent evolution. It occurs because we all have a common ancestor. When something in nature makes sense such as this, we can't deny its part of Islam.
  15. My Antivirus picked up malware on SC?

    http://malware.wikia.com/wiki/Worm:VBS:Malware-Gen You most likely opened up a file that was infected. Also, Avast is no longer seen as great for anti-virus. It causes more blue screen issues than other AV. Hitman Pro is probably the best AV you can get now.
