We might consider the term nothing as something without anything, absolute absence of anything. Well, this is hard to comprehend. For millennia, the concept of nothing, especially in religion, was something that
Wow! This was very mind bending but very intriguing! While reading I tried to define “nothing” in my own terms and found just how hard it is to not use the word “something” or another word along those lines. How did you come up with a question this abstract and complex? I also liked how you tied religion into it and how so many people can believe in “nothing” because they have never seen it.
Your writing is beautiful and fluent. I have a quote that relates to the pain you felt in which you gained beauty. One of my favorite philosophers named Aeschylus once said, “Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget

I think that your interest for this research is important. I think that you can go a long way in describing abuse from different standpoints whether it may be from the man or from the woman. I also would love to see some research done on verbal abuse among family or couples. I feel that verbal abuse does not get mentioned as much as many…[Read more]
I found your post very interesting and one that is a n important issue to discuss. A question that I would like to bring up and may be influential in your research is, “What kinds of programs do we have to offer to rehabilitate most inmates especially those of younger ages? And how can we make these programs as affective as we can?” I agree…[Read more]
I found your post interesting in the way that it describes the assent of power that North Korea has accumulated. I often wonder to what extent does their power want to reach? I also wonder to which extent does North Korea plan to protect itself. I would say that North Korea’s goal is to do harm to the United States of America. Unfortunately…[Read more]
Your post is very formative with regards to the growing concern for local and small businesses. This interest is an important research topic to pursue. Something that would help a lot or hopefully would help is the understanding of how big businesses grow and become powerful. The historic advent of innovation with technology led…[Read more]
I think that your post is very clever. When you talk about the fear that our “…fellow humans see us as nothing more than meat on bone…” is utterly terrifying. I really found your connection to zombies with the collapse of humanity as something relatable especially when there are debates that people—especially younger g…[Read more]
Do I have a destiny? Personally, I believe that I can shape my own destiny, but this question leaks into the two arguments that propose if we, as humans, have free will or not. This question asks if our lives
I found your post very interesting. I think you would enjoy the article (link below) about how destiny is determined by your decisions. I agreed with your statement that “choosing the path of determinism leaves no room for many of the cultural and advanced philosophical values that we hold close today.” People have formed many important things and ideas that shape the world we live in. I have also thought that “it best to control as much as we can, to form our own destiny.” I believe that people should work for what they want in life. I look forward to reading your next post.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
