Discussion of everything related to the Theory of Evolution.
because it's not sweet - it's bitter. It only has to taste good. For you, bitter is sweet to taste though not tasting sugary
I am a bit lost in that discussion. And I would say that crucible is the one generally losing me.
The fact that something taste the way it is is a truly unique experiment for each individual, just as any perception. I cannot share anyone perception. All I can say is that I find that a perception that is common when tasting a number of substances or viewing different objects is named a certain way and we share that. If I remember correctly there was some things done showing that naming things can actually interfere with perception (i.e. people with different grouping of colors :when does blue end and green starts, this kind of thing, had a different perception of the world and would be more aware of some distinctions and less of other). But when it comes to associating emotions (pleasant, not pleasant) there is probably both an innate component (The receptors for bitterness are usually associated with rejection, because alkaloids are usually stimulating those receptors), but this perception can be educated an modifies consciously over time. And I am pretty sure that this interplay between innate and acquired is true for all perception.
With that I am not sure what was my point, but that is Okay, I just read the thread again, and I am not sure there was a point to it anymore....

How about if I give you an example, instead ?
OK. I am not one who believes that It's necessary to change your opinion. I can only offer the evidence and the reasoning, but if that fails, your case can be abandoned with not too much hardship.
