Naturalism and Theism.

Provided that you beleive in materialism and naturalism everything that will happen to me and you and all that we think and do is inevitable.
All events in nature can be traced back eventually, I guess, to the Big-Bang, and all of our thougts are side-effects from nonrational, nonpurposive, unintentional laws of physics and chemistry. That thought to me is amazing. How long would it take in nature for a car to randomly assemble itself? ...

"Everybody knows..."

"Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everbody knows the war is over
Everbody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
Ther poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows"


"Everybody Knows" Leonard Cohen, Canadian at large

I find these melancholic lyrics to be truly uplifitng. :)

Deep Questions

I've noticed quite a few "deep" questions on this board, and they seem to generate the most responses, to speak generally. For example, does God exist? are there absolutes? is knowledge certain?

But on the other hand, I notice that some of you in your replies realize that these are questions cannot be answered, and so you are very short and angry in your replies to them.

Thus I ask my own deep question about ...

Learning Latin

I am teaching myself Latin from Wheelock. My question is, has anyone taken the SAT II on Latin, or even modern Hebrew or Spanish? And also is Wheelock the best book for self-instruction? I have heard certain parts require a tutor.

Igitur vs Quare

I translated this sentence:

He will, therefore, thank the queen and the whole people.

As:

Quare, reginae et toti populo gratias aget.

Should I have used 'igitur' in place of 'quare'?
Also, since 'populus' is plura should it read 'totis populis'?

Thank you.

The price was reasonable for $39 (there are only two copies in stock on amazon and it retails for $81; none at abebooks). It's a linguistic text. According to the description, "the author attemtps to assemble the first description of the possible inflexions found for each verb that Greek inherited from PI-European ...
