Thats a load of garbage, you should get more sleep.
Life exists, you cant place your own definition on it. To live you exist, to exist you must live.
Knee jerk response, think about it a little bit. If I can't a definition to it it doesn't exist, so your answer is self-defeating.
I think therefore I am? Do worms think?
That's a good question, do they? Is reasoning thinking? Do bees think? They can accommndate learned response, which demonstrates so type of reasoning function. Define intelligence.
Responsibility: Uh sorry I just Tboned your car and killed your kids, but hey, im not responsible for you.
You are responsible for your actions, not someone elses. You Tbone someones car and kill their kids you are responsible not only for the carelessness, but the destruction and grief done to others as a result.
Reciprocity: I dont find this in the the Declaration anywhere.
Just because it is not mentioned does not mean it isn't a truth, most of what is cited in the Declaration are inalienable rights which are sub-texts of truths. Truths are the most basic concepts, inalienable rights are components of a truth. Can you see the difference?
Resprocity is the interaction between life forms for mutual benefit, it is the basic cornerstone of civilization.
Choice, yes thats what a choice is, am I missing something?
Evidently a lot! Choice is the excercise of free will, without it you have life without function.
Reproduction: Got nothing to do with anything.
Think not? Without reproduction life is unsustainable.
Are you sure you read the Declaration of Independence and not a high school philosophy book? Youre not talking about truths of any sort. Are you sure youre not trying to invent a religion?
No, I already have a religion, I'm trying to boil concepts to their lowest common denomenator. It is obvious that neither person who has answered so far is a deep thinker or understands the concepts upon which the discussion was predicated.
