Biologically, happiness must be the feeling of being a step better for our propagation. Otherwise, human can not survive long.

Unhappiness is almost just the counterpart of the happiness.

These conclusions can be drawn simply by reasoning with the knowledge of a high school student who has learnt the biology and history.

Is it just me or is this the same post three times in three different threads?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

I am not very sure how evolution plays a major role here....

The way you see the reality may tell how happy you really are.

defining happiness

Post by Nick1254367 » Fri Dec 11, 2009 8:46 am

interesting thoughts. I completely agree, happiness is a tricky word. I had a shot at trying to define it in a more "scientific" or "objective" way, despite it being a subjective feeling: [link removed]

I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thank you,

Nick
