hello i am new in this class, please to meet you all. i hope you all can help me understand philosophy


hey jazziegirl. Philosophy is basicly deep thinking into possibilities, and asking, "why?" like when the first cave man wondered, why does the moon go up and down, and the sun? Where does it go? once he/she started thinking of reasons, there was philosophy.. you may hear me menton Theology, wich is philosophy, exept dealing with religion.

Ok class its time for a new project. We are going to discuss the the effect of Vampires and other supernatural beings. Starting with Vampires i want to know how evrone in the call sees them. Are they the Cancer or the cure? what other then physicology seperates humans from vampires? How is it each of you think they came about. This will be the start of our first debate. We will be talking about why the supernatural have survived in our mind for so long. Each of you is to choose a Vampire that represents what you see as being a TRUE vampire. your can refernce from any source. Also im planing a small feild trip for the class since it is so small and we are going to take a indepth look at the world of vampires soon. Ill keep you posted. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

hm... dont know of vampires much, but you said, "Why the supernatural have survived in our mind for so long," i can think of something for that.... i think we as humans... are greedy... we always want more. a poor man beggs for change. a fair man beggs for hundreds. a rich man beggs for millions. we as humans are more capable of doing things than any other being that lives on the earth, or that has EVER lived on the earth. that is why we dominate today. but we still want more. myth and legend has effeected us in many ways. first, i believe that we invented these beings for many reasons. 1) Crazy poeple. 2) Actual existance. 3) Creative fiction stories, but people eventually believed because they were bored. 4) Wanting there to be something more.
along with no.4, we are all sorta bored with life as it is. we would prefer if there was something else, and with Vampires.... think about it, that myth is that they were once people. because everyone here has once wanted to be a vampire atleast once in thier life. now, i am not saying that Vampires dont exist, but i do think that if they were real, we definately exagherated thier truth.

well, i dont really know about "supernatural vampires"

but the question that as to why the people believe in the supernatural merely because we are humans.. and has humans our imagination drives us..and as humans we are bound to create something.... creativity is something that humans differ from the animals. believing in the supernatural is coming from a desire to know about something or someone far more powerful than us and believing in something for us to "fear".

about the vampires..... dracula was real. well, he didnt have the fangs and dont suck blood. but he loved killing people for fun. and he delighted at the sight of blood..... that is when the legend was made that the people believed that he sucked the persons blood thus killing them in the process.... in todays society, i can say that in a way, we are all vampires. considering that we use too much of nature for our own whims. and as Soulgrenade as said. it is the peoples greediness.....

very good so far so you think greed is what was the major benefactor in the creation of the Vampire. I see you gave this some thought. In actuallity the myth stims from a warlord named Vlad Dracule. he would impale his victims on spears and set them vertical infornt of his estate to scare those who would oppose him. he and his subject would rutinely bathe in the blood of the dead. Since then the perception of the Vampire has changed. Now if vampire do exist as thet are in books/movies/animes what do you beleave their effect on humanity would be?

in the question "if vampire do exist as they are in books/movies/animes what do you believe their effect on humanity would be?" i have an answer....

I think if the vampire do really exist, there will be more people that will be curious. it can make people do things that is not appropriate, like going beyond the world they have, and disturb another one. I also believe there will be an arguments, misunderstandings, and divisions on the humanity because of all different perceptions and beliefs of each. it will be another issue that will be a difficult or never be solve.

i don't know if my answer does make sense.....

effect of the humanity will be distrust. fear will be evident in all beings..... i can say that instead of us becoming of this age now... we would apparently would still be living same as the dark ages..... after all, the fear of these vampires have started there.... witches and the like. slayers would go out and collect money to kill of these so called vampires.....

hmmm.... buffy the vamipe slayer or Claymore style.. *laughs*

anyway, in conclusion... typical effects will be:

*Fear
*no trust to others
*killings will be evident
