To be an economic powerhouse, you need to set up a lot of things as a nation to ensure that you are trustworthy and assure investors that you have institutions and laws that ensure fairness and legal protection and respect for their property. read more
Microsoft's Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are Atheists. They also donated billions of their wealth to charity.read more
That's right. People who believe in a god or gods are theists. People who are not convinced that a god or gods exist are A-theists. That's is all we share in common. Nothing more. Nothing less.
It is also important to point out that we don't believe in the Devil or devils for the same reason we don't believe in a god or gods.
I think that's important because many people who believe in god cannot get their minds around that.read more
My answer on the 29th of August 2015:
If you are serious about blogging, do it on Wordpress. I would recommend it running on your own domain name and on a hosting account you control.
Reasons: you can customise its features, you have control over it, you're investing in your URL for the long term.

Do you need to register as a company? Can you NOT register as a Sole Trader in India? That's probably the simplest to start with. I would only start using a company when it is worth more than its trouble.
Once you have that, I would, if I were in your shoes, see if I can legally protect any intellectual property I can have on the product (trademarks, patent, copyright, etc). read more
In essence, allowing the IRS to take a huge chunk of one's money, in return for being able to use big boy words and "legal" documents, and business liability that may never be exercised.read more
I suppose that depends on what you need done. If you need a website designed and developed then you'll need Web designers and development services.
If your business is selling products and services then you might be okay developing a website made with a collection of pre developed parts cobbled to work together to minimise your cost. You can get a website anywhere from day $2000 to $10000 depending on what you're after. read more
I heard somewhere that providing services normally provided by governments in developed countries are profitable in areas where governments have become useless and dysfunctional. Providing power / electricity generated from renewable sources may be something to consider. If I find the resource i read/heard about this, I'll post it here.read more
What makes it up to 100 years? Why not 50 years? Why not 50000 years?read more
It depends on the type of business you're into and what you are offering the other prospective partner. They need to be convinced that there is a chance you can succeed. You need to convince them that working with you and your business is going to be worth their time. read more
It really depends on where more of your customers/clients/audience would be. If they're a demographic that uses apps more, then focus on the apps. Otherwise drive traffic to the website. That's my take on it.read more
It really depends on what you are trying to sell and why you are require people to log in. Only do things that are actually necessary. Do not make people have to log in if it's not necessary.read more
I am hopeful that humanity will last for a long time to come, but at some point, if the current physicist analysis is correct, then the universe will continue on expanding with all the planets and stars so far apart, and eventually go cold. Devoid of any source of energy, no life will exist no longer, then yes, it is sad. I feel this in solidarity with you. read more
I'll address the technical aspect of your project because I'm guessing you have worked out the business and operational aspects of your website.
If you want to have different types and levels of users, writers and contributors with varying access, restrictions and permissions, then Drupal is a good CMS to use for an online magazine website. It also has great tagging and categorising infrastructure.read more
I'm not an evolutionary biologist, just a science enthusiast. From my readings, it may not necessarily be the case that the remaining Great Apes will evolve exactly into Homo Sapiens. Keep in mind there were other types of Homo species that evolved and are now extinct. read more
I'm not sure if you're asking because you've tried and it failed or whether you're asking to see if it's a good idea.
If it's the latter, then it might be a good idea and it might work. But the question in business is who will continue to pay for these meals? Will it be the patients, will it be the relatives or will it be the taxpayer, or another group? Then once that's answered, the next question would be: is there enough incentive there to continue paying for it?read more
I think one of the reasons is that rats have a lot of similarities to us. We shared one of the earliest mammal ancestor with them. So if we are testing for diseases and cures we test it on them before we test it on us. There might be other reasons. read more
Darwin observed evolution through natural selection. His theories and works were strongly rejected by people who believed in god. Darwin's ideas went against the Bible's accounts of how life happened here on Earth.
The story of evolution as it happened here on Earth is a remarkable, beautiful story. So much more than made - up stories in so-called holy books can ever offer. read more
If there is such a thing where it is said that science says that life only comes from life, then it would be of some context, like the replication of DNA or the propagation of genes.
But if we are talking about the origins of life, then I don't think that's what our current understanding of Science is saying. read more
It is your misunderstanding of what Science is that is keeping you stuck. Atheists like myself understand that Science is fallible. Scientists themselves understand that Science is fallible. That is why they keep experimenting and experimenting. They're always arguing and disputing previous theories to keep testing that previous studies came up with correct conclusions. So when you see that, that is a sign that there is healthy science going on.read more
