Question(s) of the Week
Join to comment
 Group admin 
In an effort to boost conversation in this group, I've came up with a rather crazy idea to ask a philosophical (or at least my attempt to) question each week...
So anyway, do you think history should be written in active voice or passive voice and why?

You are going to kill us, 000... And I think active because it is more interesting to me, If the active I am thinking of is correct, as it usually is not...

LOL, anyhow I'd have to disagree, while active voice is more interesting to read, it allows for far too much author bias, whereas, passive voice merely states the facts... allowing the reader (the student) to develop his or her own opinion without the interference from the author...

We kinda got off topic I guess, but I think my friend needs a translation, for it was hard for even me to understand. Here is what he was trying to say in the first question. DO you like history to be blah? or just blahblahblah. =D JK, well at my church, the jonas brothers who are a huge hit in the states are coming to my churches 30th anniversary to perform some worship songs, and long story short, when everyone hears that the jonas brothers are coming and you can see them for free, well, lets just say it will get chaotic. They are also homeschooled, and overpaid if you ask my dad...

Yes we did get a bit off topic and no I don't believe that they are overpaid since if there are enough suckers on this planet willing to give em the cash then they deserve it... and no, the question is not if history should be written blah blah blah etc. see above... and yes, I think we should stay on topic here... save randomness for the other thread please... ;)

Passive. The other option leaves the feild open for any special interest group who gets offended by the harsh reality of the past, and decides to make the topic politically correct, pissing me, and alot of other people off.

passive definitely, as long as it is not a boring passive. I've had bad experiences with active teachers. I go to a protestant school and a few of the teachers don't exactly like Catholics. Last year the whole class was actually CHANTING.

Since I reserved the right to ask multiple questions a week, here's the next one... (this is a bit goofy) should atheists get insurance for "acts of God"? Given that there are such things as "acts of God"?

For an atheist to insure against "acts of God", they would be hypocrites at their best. However, used in the insurance nomenclature, "acts of God" are not miracles, so much are they supreme natural disasters. So yes, they should get insurance against "acts of God".

I believe that if they were insured against "acts of god" they would be hypocrites like griffin said, but I do not think that they need it, as you can't really get insurance against natural disasters...At least, I don't think so...
