Are viruses alive? My elementary school science teacher insisted that they weren't since they can't reproduce by themselves, but if they react to stimuli and are capable of reproducing at all then they seem to be alive to me.

Books Edition

Talk about mathematics, last thread was >>13742383

Some people here and there wanted book recommendations, so I made a short list where anyone is welcome to add to it (as long as they're not a spaz about it). It's more algebra-oriented, so it definitely needs additions. If it gets long enough, I'll put it in a pastebin.

(If there's no title, then title = subject)

-"How to Prove It", Velleman


Linear Algebra:
-"Linear Algebra Done Right", Axler

Set Theory:
-"Naive Set Theory", Halmos

Abstract Algebra:
-"A Book of Abstract Algebra", Pinter (Baby book)
-Dummit & Foote (not so baby)

Real Analysis:
-"Principles of Mathematical Analysis", Rudin (everybody's favorite)

Complex Analysis:


Number Theory:
-"A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory", Ireland & Rosen

Galois Theory:

Commutative Algebra:
-"Introduction to Commutative Algebra", Atiyah & Macdonald
-"Commutative Rings", Kaplansky

Algebraic Topology:

Differential Geometry:
-"Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces", Do Carmo

Ellipctic Curves:
-"Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves", Silverman

i'm retarded when it comes to science, so i'm looking for people who know what they're talking about.

how firm or sound is the darwinian theory of evolution? are there gaps, miracles, or anomalies in the evolutionary record? my dad is saying darwinian evolution requires faith and a materialist worldview, and that there are mysteries that it cannot explain (like the evolution of the eye).

thanks in advance

Why don't we set the meter to be like 1/100,000,000 of the distance light travels in a single second instead of having the cumbersome 1/129,028,029 or whatever it is?

Metal Bed Frame EMFs

No.13783660 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Recently bought a new metal bed frame and I was absolutely in love with it. Much less noise than my old wooden frame and is extremely sturdy. A friend showed my an article about the possible side effects of a metal bed frame, namely capturing EMF radiation. I try not to be paranoid about things out of my control but it's been nagging at me for the couple of days now. Any anons have a bed frame like this? Is it safe to sleep on them for the long term?
