This is a very subjective question, and one many philosophers have attempted to answer.
My personal opinion is that life is to be valued and respected, but not to the point of getting dogmatic about it. There are times when a person is suffering so deeply that they may wish to die, and that should be that person's perogative. We will euthanize our pets if they're suffering a slow death from a terminal illness and we call it "kindness"; yet there is a lot of resistence to a human being of sound mind asking for that same kindness when enduring a slow and painful death.
That being said, I think a respect for life can keep us emotionally healthy. As I unfortunately know from past experience, deciding that life is horrible and worthless only contributes to a downward spiral of depression. Whether one believes in creation or evolution (or both at once), life can be seen as a wonderous and intriguing thing.
There are somethings in life that are better not known, for our own sake.
For its own sake, the union agreed to the trade agreement.
it means that you value something more than you value your own life. idiot. you care about something more than your life
"Intrinsic value is the worth of something for its own sake. The word intrinsic refers to the essential nature of a thing. Value is a judgement based on an assessment. Something's intrinsic value would have to do with what it is worth to an individual.
not demanded for its own sake
Assuming SMV is an acronym for Sake Meter Value (a translation of "nihonshu-do"), then you can calculate a SMV value from a specific gravity (SG) value using this formula:SMV = ((1/SG)−1) × 1443For example, a finished genshu sake with a SG of 0.996 (what my homemade sake typically finishes fermenting at) would have a nihonshu-do of +5.8.
Well, obviously you couldn't do that, but I guess for argument's sake, and from only those choices, it would be the value of everything in the basement. That is the territory that is independent.
art exists for the sake of its beauty alone, and that it need serve no political, didactic, or other purpose
Since we are all human beings, we naturally tend to believe that human life has value. We value our own lives and it would be hypocritical to value our own lives but to place no value on the lives of other people. So, if human life has value, then the indiscriminate murder of large numbers of innocent people must necessarily be a bad thing.
You are not smart and.... you're a stupid prat who does not understand life. SO HERE IS THE ANSWER. No you can't print you own money for gods sake. Try listenin YEA? Some people are 1OO% Loonies. Including YOU.
