Must we have evidence to know the truth?
Yes if you want to make it tangible. Truth is knowledge and evidence is needed to establish it, gut instinct is merely a starting point and is liable to prejudice.
How much control does a person have over their life?
Not as much as we think and I don’t mean in a tin foil hat looney way. We live in an ever changing environment with an unlimited number of variables. Whether it be quirks of nature or the kindess or otherwise of others, sociopolitical events or twists in our own health.
What is gravity and how does it work?
I’m no physicist so I will leave that to those who are better equipped for such a question. I will however recant a story if how my friend got his photo on the front page of the local newspaper (and it didn’t involve the police in some capacity… Though if he were a female at the time they might have come a knocking about 15 years later).
When we were growing up there was a show which was presented by a former DJ with a penchant for Shellsuits and Cigars, in which children could ask for a wish of some variety and this would be “fixed” so it could be done. You could ask anything, meet a pop star, eat a McDonald’s while on a rollarcoadter, formation swimming, see how cheese is made, go on a F1 race track etc… and my friend asked “what causes gravity?” So off he went and had a small section on the show which involved an upside down globe with a pull motion diorama of Isaac Newton under a tree with the apple falling on his head. The illustration being that no matter where the apple fell from, it always is drawn towards the centre of the earth.
After recording the Shropshire Star had my friend photoed with his “Fixed it for Me” badge for a box on the front page.
Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness? How about vice versa?
Two sides of the same coin so no, happiness is nothing if can’t exist with sadness.
