If an “illusion” isn't real, then what’s so wrong with being “disillusioned”?
Moravian comments on Oct 11, 2019:
the meaning of words change over time and although an illusion is a deceptive impression of reality, to be disillusioned now tends to mean to lose faith in an ideal. there is not necessarily anything wrong with being disillusioned if the ideal was false in the first place. eg the football fan was disillusioned with the running of his club as they were at the bottom of the league.

Moravian comments on Oct 11, 2019:
Couldn't find the time or the will to read through the whole of your post but the only way I think that reinstating the draft would curtail the US's illegal foreign wars is that is if a large proportion of those drafted refused to join up and we have a similar situation to the Vietnam conflict when the people saw the reality of what was happening.

I enjoyed some of the Top gear shows with Clarkson and his buddies but it was very juvenile humour. Greta is much more mature than he and his co presenters ever were.

Moravian comments on Oct 7, 2019:
Very true. In songbirds it is mostly the males that sing and they are either calling for a mate or telling others not to invade their territory. I find it very sad when in late summer after raising a brood or two they stop singing.

Moravian comments on Oct 6, 2019:
Both words are used far too much. People say that they love ice cream. No they don't. They just like the taste and texture and may get a sugar rush for an hour. I have friends who say that they "hate" certain politicians. No they don't.. They don't know them but may dislike their policies or they way they present themselves. As for having a path, I think it is beneficial to have a path of sorts but there should be room for deviation.

Why do we choose to do something?
Moravian comments on Oct 5, 2019:
A bit of both I think.We tend to be creatures of habit and mostly avoid what we think are going to be painful or uncomfortable situations. The question of free will has been debated endlessly and there is no definitive answer, I think we are at the mercy of our primitive selves and react instinctively at times. A bit like Brian the dog in "Family Guy" who acts like a human most of the time then reverts to dog like behaviour

The earth certainly provides us with life along with the sun.We are currently doing our utmost to make the earth uninhabitable for our species and if the mad scientists have their way they will pump chemicals into the upper atmosphere to try to alleviate the damage we are doing. We are part of nature and should appreciate this. As for giving ourselves labels, I'm not sure if that is helpful

Moravian comments on Oct 2, 2019:
"The connection between science and spirituality". I know all about science but haven't a clue what people mean by spirituality as it can mean just about anything. This article has been posted and debated before and it is promoting the Templeton foundation, a religious organisation. Science should have nothing whatsoever to do with the supernatural and to merge theology with science is ridiculous.

There may NOT be life on other planets
Moravian comments on Sep 14, 2019:
Haven't really got a clue what you are on about but a planet has been discovered recently which is in "the goldilocks zone" has a temp between 0C and 40C and has water in the atmosphere. How the boffins can ascertain this is beyond my comprehension but if they are right there must be millions of similar planets in the universe, so it is very likely that there is life out there. Whether "it is life Jim but not as we know it" is another matter.
