Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

December 1, 2012

James asks…

Possible concussion, but scared of going to the doctor without good reason?

Hi there,

I’m a twenty year old female. I work in a school with autistic children, and the about 44 hours ago, I was hit several times, hard, around the head, by a student. I didn’t lose consciousness, but he also got my arm, which bruised immediately (just to give a guide as to the strength of these hits for better reference).

I walked home to clear my head, and went to sleep almost immediately after getting home, because… Well, I’d just done an eleven hour night shift, I was tired. I went back into work the next night, but I’ve had a really bad headache ever since, and it’s still with me. I was standing earlier, and I sort of stumbled slightly. In addition to this, my gaze went funny earlier, but only once. I’m also still really tired.

I don’t like going to the doctor’s, because they have a habit of sending you packing. I mean, the last time I went, my doctor told me I had a chest infection and that it would clear up in 2-3 weeks and sent me off without giving me anything to help, despite me explaining the kind of job I do, and how some of the students have impaired immune systems. That was about two months ago, and I still have trouble breathing. So if anybody with medical knowledge could tell me this isn’t likely to be something worth going about, I’d rather avoid going.

I’d appreciate the help. Thank you.

admin answers:

Don’t go to see a regular doctor then if he/she is the get you in and out in 2 minutes type. Go see a neurologist instead. You are dealing with concussion symptoms and you don’t want to treat them lightly. I was fine with mine for 2 days then everything went to heck in a hand basket and I had to relearn how to get dressed. If you can’t get an appt with a neurologist, go to the ER. The neurologist will most likely want an MRI or a CT scan done anyway. If you do have concussion symptoms that last longer than a week start looking for a neurologist with brain injury expertise. It will make all the difference in the world for your recovery. I spent the first 8+ months with a bozo. When I finally got to see an expert it gave me hope and it was like a breath of fresh air.

Good luck to you.

Helen asks…

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate?

I read this on web MD about complications of getting the measles:
Complications from measles include ear infection and, in rare cases, pneumonia, strep throat, diarrhea, and encephalitis. In extremely rare cases, encephalitis can result in permanent brain damage and death.

If a pregnant woman gets measles, she has a greater chance of miscarrying her baby, delivering her baby prematurely, or delivering a stillborn baby. But measles infection does not cause birth defects.

Infants, older adults, people who have impaired immune systems, and people who have poor nutrition are at a higher risk for complications.

So it is either the very slight possibility of your child getting autism(which has not been proven) or the possibility of death from not vaccinating a child. With all the recent outbreaks in measles how do you feel about this situation? Why or why not?

admin answers:

My three year old nephew is autistic and my sister in law believes it’s from the vaccinations. He is such a sweet little boy and although autism is horrible I’d much rather him have that then have him get a serious illness from not getting vaccinated. I think every child should get vaccinated, sure there is a risk of becoming autistic, but it’s far better than the risk of losing your child. My sister in law decided to wait to have my other nephew vaccinated until he’s five. I think that’s a good alternative.

Your Questions About If You Choose To Answer This Question At Random

September 30, 2012

Paul asks…

Probability question. will choose BEST answer…need help :( ?

If you could give me an explanation of how to do this I would GREATLY appreciate it. Will choose best answer

As part of its quality-control program, the video cartridges produced by Starr Communications are
subjected to a final inspection before shipment. A sample of 7 cartridges is selected at random from each lot of cartridges produced, and the lot is rejected if the sample contains one or more defective cartridges. If 1.7% of the cartridges produced by Starr is defective, find the probability that a shipment will be accepted.

admin answers:

W need to find out the size of the lot to compute the defectives. Then we subtract defectives from the the lot size and divide by the lot size , multiply by 100 to obtain the %of a good cartridges per lot.
Y= lot size

7 samples per lot are taken so what is the size of the lot?

Y / 7 -1 = 1
y = 14

the % defective is 1.7% , 14(1.7)/100 = 0.238 defects per lot

14 – 0.238 = 13.76 good cartridges, —-> 13.76/14*100 = 98.3% good cartridges per lot which is the
probability of success in any one trial. So the probabilities the shipment will be accepted are unknown.But there is more on the calc.of the probability of acceptance of the shipment.For we have to make use of a formula called the Binomial Probability Formula which give the probability of sucess given the values already calculated.

P(x) = nCx *p^x *q^(n-x) where the definitions are:

n = number of trials = 7
x= number of succees among trials = 6
p = probability of success in any one trial = 98.3%
q= probability of failure in any one trial ( 1-p )
nCx = combinations of n items , choose x

from here is a matter of substitution: nCx = 7C6 = 7! / 6 !(7-6)! = 7*6! / 6! (1)! = 7!

So we have, P(6) = 7 *(0.983)^6 * (0.017)^(7-6) = 6*(0.9022)(0.017) = 0.107 = 10.7% which is the
the probability of the shipment being rejected, then 100- 10.7
= 89.3 % being accepted.

Betty asks…

If you are a witness/victim in a court case can you refuse to answer a question?

So, I have court tomorrow morning, and I’m stressing obviously. But I had a question about if your aloud to do this. So I am the victim in this case which I won’t get into details and it’s a juvenile case just so you know if that changes anything , but when I go to testify, if the offenders public defender asks me a question that has NOTHING to do with the case at all, that can’t help the case, has literally no connection to it can I CHOOSE to not answer the question? Can I like object? Or is that illegal and will I get in trouble? Because I honestly have no idea and when I talked to the District Attorney for the case he said that the public defender may ask some questions that are random that don’t have a lot to do with the case like for example: she may ask about me cosplaying (dressing up as a character from an anime) because the fact that I do could make me look bad or something.
So for a question like that would I be aloud to withhold an answer?
They didn’t tell me and at the time I didn’t ask so if anyone knows about anything like that, please answer or if you even have a thought on it or just your opinion on if you THINK it would be acceptable not to answer, please tell me. Thank you!
ADD: okay, since I can’t refuse to answer my main main concern is if they ask a question like per say “did your ex-boyfriend hit you,” or something to that effect (this person not being the person in trouble) could they get in trouble if I answered “yes.” ? Even if I didn’t want them to get in trouble?

admin answers:

If you think the question is unfair – say so and explain why you feel its unfair.

You ask ‘Can I like object?’ – no that will be for the do, where he must give reason such as – relevence to the case –

The question of ‘did your ex-boyfriend hit you’ the question would be ‘How many times did your former boyfriend hit you – and where di they hit you?’ The significance of the question esablishes the assault, – the physical contact as well as the number of times it happens. This forms a pattern of actions as well as a history.

I think you are getting worked up with out reason, but you can always talk to a court official about your concerns.

Carol asks…

Repost, random questions, answer the ones you can, 10pts!?

Thanks to everyone who posted before, I just had to revise some wording in the questions to clarify.

1) I rode English for the… third? time yesterday in a hunt saddle! I loved it! I ride quite well western, and I have been riding western for 4-5 years, so I understand walk trot canter cues, sitting deep, heels down, etc. I could use advice on these two issues:
a. The stirrups slip back from the ball of my foot to the heel of my boot! This NEVER happens to me western, although sometimes I put my heels down a bit too much. Has anyone heard of putting your heals too far down in English stirrups so that not enough weight is on the ball of your foot, and the stirrup slips back? Could this be the problem? Any tips?
b. I am MUCH better at posting and keeping my stirrup when traveling counter-clockwise than clockwise. Is it normal to be better in one direction?
Any other advise is much appreciated! *NOTE* I DO NOT want a western vs. english debate here. I respect both types of riding, and honestly don’t care if you think that english is abusive, or that western doesn’t take skill.

2) My 4H horse quiz bowl team won Regional, State, and now we are headed to Nationals!! Nationals are in Lexington, Kentucky, and the Breeders Cup will be going on during the event, so we get to hang out there!! But anyways, has anyone been to the Breeders Cup? What’s your experience? Any major events that you recommend!?

3) *OK, please READ. I don’t want to be yelled at or lectured.* So, I might lease a horse over the summer that my instructor recommended. He is a English and Western pleasure horse, which is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! He is well trained in both, and I’m a fairly good rider, but I’m wondering if he could be too advanced for me. What I mean is that could I be able to handle him fine, and actually look rather nice on him, but harm his training by not challenging him to his full capacity? Can I handle him well, and look nice on him, but damage his training by not always demanding the best from him, because I am not at that level to compete?

Thanks, I WILL chose a best answer. If you don’t know all of them, just answer the ones you can!

admin answers:

1- Definately shorten your stirrups.The correct position for english riding is to push your weight down into your heels.That will help to keep your legs in the right position. Everyone,very much like horses has a stronger and a weaker side,so its very common to ride better on one particular rein,meaning clock wise or anti clockwise.Unfortunately you`ll always find that your weak side is also the horses weak side usually due to the rider not riding the horse evenly balanced,and lets be honnest we are all i think gulity of that. 2-No,never been. 3-Do you trust your instructor? Surely they wouldn`t have recommended this horse if they didnt think you were capable of riding him.I really do understand your predicament,and I understand the worry of you ruining him but I would be more worried that someone who didnt have a clue what they were doing but thought they were an expert would ruin him.You are obviously very compassionate and its lovely to hear someone being totally honnest regarding their ability but I think that you could maybe learn alot from this advanced horse.We are all on a learning curve.Trust me,I`ve been riding 21 years and Im still learning.I`d say go for it! You wont know til you try him and if need be you`ve always got your instructor to help should you run into any teething problems

Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

September 29, 2012

David asks…

What old PC game is this?

I’m trying to remember the name of this old PC game I used to play with my granddad as a kid. Apologies in advance for the limited info but it’s all I can remember!

1. It used to run on Windows 98.
2. It was a tactical war/shooting game set in the future.
3. It was a 2.5D (two-and-a-half-dimensional) game I think. The camera angle was similar to the one used in Commandos.
4. You would control a squad of soldiers, each member of the squad would have different coloured armour based on their skills (I think). This was customisable at the start so you could choose what types of soldiers you wanted to take on a mission.
5. The game would take place in a city if I remember correctly. You could go into different rooms.

Feel free to list a bunch of possibles. I don’t mind researching them all individually! Thanks!
The gameplay looks very much like Shadow Watch except that it’s not a turn based game. Also Shadow Watch seems to have better graphics than I remember this game to have.

The opponents in the game, if I recall, looked very much like the soldiers that were controlled by the player.

admin answers:

What kind of weapons?

What kind of opponents?

It’s not XCOM. Sounds vaguely like Shadow Watch

EDIT: Would it be… Syndicate?

George asks…

Is it selfish if you don’t want to spend your whole life going on mission trips?

… Stupid question, kind of…
… And before I start, I’d rather not talk about this is any kind of ‘religious’ way, (as that may be some people who might answer) it makes me mad that people see helping people = religion, I’m not atheist or anything, but because of stereotypes, I’d rather talk about it in a general sense…
I’ve been depressed … it’s not really a constant thing and it’s not that I’m never happy… but kind of…. for more than 2 years. I have low self esteem and there are things that I really hate about myself, which is mostly why I am depressed.
…. I’m going to college, and I guess you could say I have to start thinking about ‘what I want to do with the rest of my life’. Whenever I think about this, I always think about it in an ‘if‘ basis — like IF my life turns out to be any good, then…. And I really don’t know… I love psychology … or I did in high school … although I’m not sure about it, like I don’t know if I would be any good at talking to people… When I finally have to choose a major it will probably be between that and something in science… as I might actually be better at that.
And, as it is, a lot of things that most people chase after, like being popular and facades of wealth and the ‘successful’ job like business or s/t… don’t make me happy ( I don’t admire rich, powerful people)
.. This sound really dumb and cliche, but… I’ve always sort of wished I could change someone’s life for the better… in a way. I don’t know… I might want to help people who are depressed see things in themselves…as I don’t think they are just being stupid and whiny and I can see that in myself.
And they say what makes you happiest is giving to others, instead of always seeing what you can get for yourself.
……..But recently, in religion class (I went to private high school) and in books they make us read and speakers that come and stuff… there’s all this about other people in the world. … Like all the starving children in Africa and all over the world, and all the third world countries and places where people are oppressed… and they say other people in more privileged countries should be doing more to help…
That makes me feel kind of guilty…. But for the people who do do stuff… it’s almost like…. an ‘all or nothing’ kind of thing… Like if you help at all you have to spend your whole life being a missionary or something….
Maybe I’m selfish for saying this, but I really don’t want to spend my whole life being a missionary trying to rebuild a country and putting in all that effort and becoming exhausted beyond reason just to see millions and millions more of desolate, hurt people every day… I mean, you‘re doing something really good, but it’s almost like your whole life is going by working, and it’s not really doing much good… in the long run or in the big picture or whatever.
Maybe I’m selfish for saying this too, but I want to experience other things, like falling in love and just being with that person (hopefully :) ) ,and just having fun, and having a good time with friends, and taking walks at night, and going outside on a lovely day, and shopping for clothes and cool stuff, and dancing in my room while blasting my music, and watching a good movie, and swimming, and yummy ice cream, and stupid stuff like that.
…….It’s not that anyone has ever told me that I MUST do this with the rest of my life or anything…
Normally, I wouldn’t have thought about it, but it made me wonder… why other people’s lives could be so unfair as I see a lot of injustices in my own….
So really, for me and the other 99% of people who choose not to make mission trips the sole basis of their lives, is that selfish?

admin answers:

Wow. There’s way more than one question here. :-)
People get depressed for many reasons, but the main ones are lack of purpose in life and not being true to themselves. The definition of selfishness is being concerned only with your own needs at the expense of others’ needs. That doesn’t sound like you if you feel you want to make a difference in people’s lives. That being said, you don’t have to take on an entire third world country. Mission work is not for everyone, just as one-on-one care is not for everyone. The world needs all kinds of people so you need to find the niche that fulfills you while helping others and being a part of something bigger than yourself. That includes falling in love, having friends, and nurturing your psyche – what comforts your soul and cheers your heart enables you to share your happiness with others.
This time in your life is one of soul-searching to discover what career and life path is right for you. Consider taking a Career Exploration class at the community college. Maybe being a high school or college counselor will give you the satisfaction of helping people like yourself figure out what life path is best for them. Ask your friends what they think your best qualities and strengths are and think about where you can use them to do the most good.
You are asking all the right questions about your life. Good luck!

Also i might drink it with food like steak but probably i will drink it on it’s so yeah 90% i will probably drink it on it’s on without food so yeah

Prices in New Zealand dollars

Somebody answer me with this answer so what do you think about it do you agree or disagree or do you have any other choices any other ideas

Of the Cabernet sauvignon, I saw, understanding that you want a medium/full body, I’d recommend anything from Penfolds, Jacob’s Creek or Mission Estate (they’re all available here in Canada and they’re all good). If I were picking this up for myself, I’d order the Jacobs Creek Cabernet sauvignon reserve, especially since it is on special at the moment.

One last note, Cabernet sauvignon is intended for food, especially to balance out it’s tannins. Again, if it were me, I’d order the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot or the Wyndham Estate Cabernet Merlot bin 888 for sipping by itself. Merlot mellows out the Cab.

I just want pick something good quality good for sipping and chatting something that is not for a new wine drinker i will drink with my friend who loves red wine not sure which exactly but he likes dry and he been drinking a lot of red wine in moderation so i need something that will suit for any body at nay day or at least most of them and will not brake my bank so yeah i need something like not for beginner something like medium or little bit better quality but at the same time non of like professional quality staff if you know what i mean

admin answers:

Try the “Barefoot” wines. Decent and very inexpensive.

Also, try “Banrock Station” from Australia. Very good Shiraz and Shiraz blend.

Donald asks…

Canter pirouette question! Any dressage riders out there? Greg B?

I’m afraid nobody on here will be able to help me, but on the off chance there is an upper level dressage rider online tonight I’ll go ahead and ask.

Ok, so I’m learning to ride a canter pirouette. My horse is a schoolmaster who knows what to do, I think sometimes he rolls his eyes and sighs at how low he’s fallen in the world to be carting around the likes of me. Anyway, here’s how my instructor introduced it to me. I start by developing a good canter on a 20m circle, then spiral in until I’m on a small volte, maybe 6-8m. On the volte, I ask for haunches-in. Then, maintaining the haunches-in, I continue spiraling in until I’m on maybe a 1m circle. The hardest part is keeping the “jump” in the canter, and making sure the horse’s outside shoulder continues to come around on the circle. If I don’t keep the horse wrapped around my inside leg, he kinda falls against my inside leg and out through the outside shoulder, we lose the bend, and it seems more like a leg yield than a haunches-in. So, I really have to concentrate on keeping my inside leg on, turning the horse’s outside shoulder from my outside rein, and keeping my weight down on my inside seatbone. It’s not easy, but I suppose that’ the point of the exercise!

Here’s the problem I’m having. It’s not entering into the pirouette, it’s coming back out of it. Once I get down to the smallest circle I can hold, I only ride 3-4 strides, then release the horse to spiral back out. But when I try to spiral back out of the pirouete (I guess technically I’m in leg yield since I maintain inside bend as I move out on the circle) my horse loses his balance. We lose the bend, he drops his back and we lose the frame, and I lose his outside shoulder. He ends up running through the outside shoulder as we wobble our way back to the rail like a drunken sailor. I’m sure the problem is 100% rider error. My horse is very well schooled, but like any horse he is always happy to take advantage of my mistakes.

So, any suggestions? I know more practice will help. I’m just learning this movement. But it seems weird that riding a pirouette comes fairly easy but leaving the pirouette proves nearly impossible! Just for some background, we manage haunches in on a straight line and half pass pretty well now. I do always struggle to keep enough impulsion and “jump” in the canter when doing anything lateral, but my horse can be very lazy and at 17 hands sometimes I just lack the core strength to keep pushing the canter forward.

admin answers:

I always train canter pirouette by riding a square, and doing a quarter pirouette at each corner. The reason I mention this, it that it helps me (and the horse) learn to get out of the pirouette. ‘Cause guess what, that is a very hard part of riding the pirouette!

When the quarter pirouettes are going well, you ride a half pirouette and then ride forward out of it. I know this isn’t exactly what your instructor is having you do, but it helps to get the rhythm of changing from the haunches in to the sort of leg yield. Plus, it’s fun to do; it really gets the horse on the outside aides, and then it’s less work for you to keep him going.

When the half pirouettes are good, they I just go for the whole thing and ride on out of it.

I also train canter pirouette from within a walk pirouette, and transition from the walk to canter while keeping the pirouette. I usually can only get a half pirouette out of this at first because the youngsters just aren’t strong enough yet, but it keeps them from getting too worried about the movement.

Years ago I worked with Carole Grant Oldford, and she taught me the quarter pirouette trick.

I love the older schoolmasters; they are so smart at making you work for it, but once you get the key to the question, they do it so well.

Have fun!

Daniel asks…

How long do you think I will live?

please give me an honest opinion.

I’m 24 years old, and I’ve been drinking for 6 years. But at first since I was under 21 and I just asked my parents/sister for some beer every now and then it wasn’t so bad, but when I was 19, my grandfather paid for a trip to Cancun that I took with my friends and my girlfriend from back then, I spent all summer in Cancun where the drinking age was 18, well for 2 months, it wasn’t just a 6 pack here and there, it was constant drinking, and ALOT of liquor and beer with some wine thrown in here and there, and well I enjoyed it, so I came back an alcoholic, and from there on I started drinking about 12 beers a day at first, then about 18, I also drank liquor here and there and my family and friends were very upset, but I’m a master manipulator lol some have called me a sociopath, so I manipulated them into buying them for me, it caused me some legal problems too and at first I just had to pay fines (well my parents/grandfather) and then they gave me a suspended sentence and probation, well I somehow managed to convince my probation officer to not alcohol test me and I didn’t stop drinking. I didn’t go to college and I’d just sit at home all day drinking and playing video games, smoking cigarettes and writing, and at night I’d just go to strip clubs and sneak in liquor on a flask.

Well after I turned 21, it got worse, I started drinking a lot of liquor and more beer, for 3 years now I drink about 24 beers a day (coors light or corona), and about 3-7 mini bottles of vodka (50ml), and every now and then some wine. I also binge drink a lot to get drunk faster.

Well up until recently I’d pretty much lost a lot of my friends and my parents had just given up on me, they still gave me money to buy alcohol but I could tell my father hated me.

Well now through some luck (well not really luck), I inherited money and a house from my grandpa, so now I have no reason to stop drinking. Sometimes I honestly don’t care and I’m really happy, but sometimes I get depressed and feel alone (my girlfriend broke up with me because I cheated on her) and I realize that me drinking has really ruined me.

But now I’m not ruined, well not really ruined I have money now and I’ve been spending it on more drinking, more sex, and more hedonistic lazy pastimes. But I see other people my age and they’re in serious relationships and even thinking about marriage, while every Friday night I’m passed out at a random girl’s house after having a one night stand or worse yet passed out by myself after watching online porn. I also just hire escorts and go to strip clubs and parties, and while I do have fun, sometimes I feel like it’s all meaningless and in the eyes of the world Im a loser.

My mind also changes a lot, sometimes I feel happy sometimes depressed and since I inherited the money I got excited that I might never have to work again but at the same time it’s made me feel worthless. I’ve also gained weight which I don’t like.

So based on the above how long do you think I have? I drink about 24 beers a day + 7 shots of liquor, smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day, don’t exercise much, don’t eat healthy. and I’m 24 years old about to turn 25 and been drinking for 6 and a half years, I’m 6-1, weigh 215 pounds.

Everytime I think about stopping my drinking I get anxiety and my whole world revolves around drinking.

admin answers:

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 61 percent of U.S. Adults drink alcohol. Most users will not experience any harmful effects. When alcohol is consumed in large quantities—as by alcoholics or binge drinkers—the liver can be severely damaged.

Alcoholic liver disease is an umbrella term for liver conditions caused by alcohol abuse—fat buildup in the liver (fatty liver); inflammation of the liver (hepatitis); and the most serious condition, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver.

Doctors confirm alcoholic liver disease with blood tests, imaging and/or tissue testing. Blood tests check liver enzymes for signs of disease, while imaging—such as a CT or MRI scan—can show fat buildup or inflammation. Tissue testing, or a biopsy, looks at samples of liver tissue for inflammation or scarring.

The Mayo Clinic says the No. 1 recommendation for patients with alcohol-related liver diseases is to stop drinking. Existing damage is typically treated with dietary changes and anti-inflammatory medication, such as corticosteroids. In serious cases, a liver transplant may be needed.

Life Expectancy
The life expectancy for people with alcoholic liver diseases depends on the disease, health status and treatment. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 90 percent of patients with cirrhosis who stop drinking will live at least five more years.

Though some damage done by excessive drinking is permanent, abstaining from alcohol can allow at least partial healing, and dramatically increase your chances of survival.

Laura asks…

Christians whose hearts are filled with the spirit of Christ: Is it God’s justice that those who ridicule us ?

and say we are delusional for believing in God are the same people who are under the false illusion that they have free will?

Having had the spirit of Christ in my heart all my life has brought me closer to the truth. I realize that a loving and just God would never be as stupid to just give free will to anyone after killing his own begotten son. A thing like free will must be earned, and I know that path for me is to have Christ in my heart. I think it is funny how many people think that if they go out and do moral acts, that they will be entrusted with free will.

All in all, I think that a quote by my son Jayden sums it up; he said, “No person who is single or closed minded will ever be able to change the future.”

Thank you and God Bless!

Maybe they believe this for a reason. We don’t know what God has planned for them.

We should just pray for them.

Richard asks…

To those non-believers who may think that we are just phisycal beings,believers coment too-thanks?

Some people may believe we are nothing more than this physical or biologocal body.Well I want them and others to read this completely and share their views.
Normal people(wether religious or not,believer in god or not) become happy after they do a good act, even if their action can’t be justified by materialistic laws , for example sacrifising one’s self for another person, or to give your kidney to someone else for free.
And they will get sad in their hearts when they do something evil , even if they make a good money(that their actions are justifyable by materialistic laws) ofcourse I am talking about ‘normal’ people whose heart hasn’t changed dramatically.
So if we read between the lines it proves there is something more than this physical world it proves reward and consequence for our actions. >>
this is a feeling so deep in our heart(deeper than one can say because they were taught it in the school when they were child), it is deep there.
Just like we love and want the beauty , we love good acts( even if they dont make sense with materialistic laws).
you know, when something is in our heart there is a response outside, if there is the hunger inside ,there is food outside. if there is the need of love inside ,there is marriage and love outside.For every natural need or tendency or feeling that we have inside our hearts ,there is a response a satisfaction outside. the response to this feeling is that there is more than
this world, there is reward and consequenses.
Things make sense.
If we admire sombody when he get killed, trying to rescue somebody else which doesnt make sense by the physical laws,it means our hearts knows that there is more than this physical world.even if some people has become unbelievers and consciously deny it while their hearts unconsciously act in according to spritual laws.
and yes when god created us he put this in our heart.
Note that I dont say non-belivers dont do good acts,some of them do,beacause the truth is in their hearts but they consciously deny it.and sometimes they act in according to spritual laws without paying attention to it.
peace to you all

well I should add that I am saying that God will forigve nonbelievers because of their
good deeds. but I just said these things about their actions to prove my point, that
there is more than just this world
I am saying God will forgive =I am not saying ….
in above
Sorry I had a typing mistake:
well I should add that I “”"”NOT”"”" am saying that God will forigve nonbelievers because of their
good deeds. but I just said these things about their actions to prove my point, that
there is more than just this world
I am tired I meant
well I should add that I am **NOT** saying that God will forigve nonbelievers because of their
good deeds. but I just said these things about their actions to prove my point, that
there is more than just this world
to scif Guy:
look I made a typing mistake and corrected it. by my correct statement ( I am not saying that god will forgive….)
you cant draw that “God will ignore those acts” , nor you can draw that “it is enough that God forgive their sins with it”.
“I am not saying” .. means the aim of this
question is something else….that i explained it is to show that there is another world.
I just did not talk about that matter in this question
