@jesuswasanalien
Not only do I not think Jesus was an alien, I straight up think he didn't exist at all in this world ever. Watch Zeitgeist, it will explain it way better than I ever could.

well I don't believe Jesus was the son of god, but sadly, there is proof that he did exist. they found like some burial thing about him? that apparently led to his grave? idk. I stumbled upon it. but yeah he did.

No one knows if he was the real deal though. sooo we just let it slideeee

Not to be that guy, but money actually does hold value. And it's made out of fabric's, not paper.

 
 
Thu, 07/21/2011 - 1:15pm

well yeah but not as much as we think it does.

If money is made from cotton then we can make money from hemp. Hemp material is awesome and very usable.

true, but not only does it hold very little actual value in fabric, i would imagine that it would hold less true value than the pre-dollar fabric because in order to use it as fabric you would have to spend money breaking it all down again.

so really printing money is basically spending money to convert real value into fake value...fail.

nothing really holds value in a universal sense, but that piece of fabric can get you weed. that is value in my book

 
 
Fri, 07/22/2011 - 7:01pm

Technically, the dollar hold's no actual value anymore. It used to be representative of a certain amount of gold in our treasury, but we aren't on the gold standard any more.

What he's trying to say is that if humans were really smart we'd notice we didn't need money we could do with out it we just need to help each other out and keep doin things its not like money is whats fueling machines powerin plants operating tools ext we are what make things happen not some piece of fabric with printed words saying its worth something.

the only reason money has any value at all is because theres so much of it

 
 
Sat, 07/23/2011 - 8:39am

I think the only reason it has value is so the goverment can say they have a shitload more of it than everyone else

Not true haven't you read or paid attention in school the more of somethin the less it is worth since there is more it grows less valuable because it is no longer rare dur

Well, if your gonna get all analytical, nothing has any real value, People give things different values.

people give things different values, based on money. which has no value except what were told. woah. money has WAY too much control over us, but at the same time, money is powerless... without us. we are the only reason the concepts of money and measured time even exist

by that logic there's no reason to ever debate anything because every word and concept in every dictionary was created by humans, meaning going on highdeas and sharing your ideas (like this post) with everyone is pointless.

shame on you for devaluing highdeas ;)
