The Philosopher's Thread

I have looked far and wide on SI for a serious philosophy thread. Having found none, I decided to start my own, just in case there is one other person out there who has infinite curiosity about their existence.

If you do not believe in evolution, this thread is not for you. If you are not a liberal, this thread is probably not for you.

Knowledge is expanding at the speed of light and this thread is for trying to surf that wave of knowledge to try and keep up with new discoveries and ideas, in science, Existentialism, Phenomonology, Quantum physics and whatever else possibly exists in the universe.
