Hello, Art of Manliness; my name is Ender, and I'm a senior biochemistry and philosophy double major. I'm currently towards the end of the medical school application process (so fingers are crossed).

I've been perusing articles here for a few years now, and I thought I would join the conversation on these fine fora. I imagine it's more or less the digital equivalent of chatting at a barber shop while you wait.

That's a good analogy. You just got lots of cool points in my book just for your name. LOL Have you read the books by Orson Scott Card? 

Anyway, welcome and good luck on med school. I hope you know what you're getting yourself in to! 

Only Ender's Game; I never got into the sequels/parallel novels.

As for medical school, I hope so too!

Hallo Ender, welcome to AoM. 

Interesting pairing for your academic pursuits. I look forward to your discussion contributions. Will keep my fingers crossed as well, for your med school plans. 

Thank you.

Science and philosophy make a more natural combination than one would think. I have always seen science as a subset of philosophy.

A fair point. There was a pretty hard divide between the two departments when I was in school. But generally, I would agree with you.

Philosophy major? Have fun with that

I hope that's not sarcastic...

Should freedom of speech apply absolutely to the internet?

It goes without saying that freedom of speech as mentioned in the 1st Amendment was drafted long before anyone could have envisioned the internet.Interestingly many states do have their own local laws regulating speech (ex. obscenity) which seem bypassed by internet access.So should freedom of speech as a right be applied unequivocally to anything any everything accessible on the internet; the internet is the closest to anarchism that one can really get so there's no further-left one could go…See More

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
