    Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. - Hebbel

    People don't ask for facts in making up their minds. They would rather have one good, soul-satisfying emotion than a dozen facts.

    This is actually a scientific fact, observed on magnetic resonnance imagery.
    So I guess I should thank you for accidentally explaining us why religions are plaguing the world and wars are wagged over every possible bad excuse.

    This is all so very SCI-EN-TI-FIC.

    You have got to love Voltaire:

    Yes, that is true if you are only thinking of physicality. I don't think it holds true for non-tangibles at all. Such as emotional health.

    And I'm not sure that the most useful way to tackle this question is by comparisons. Individual emotion is probably the most useful way to examine the question.

    HA! That's a laugh. The average hunter-gatherer caveman spent 20 hours gathering/hunting for food, and the rest of his time sleeping, playing, and sexing it up with the wife. Now? 50-60 hours a week, we all hate ourselves and each other.

    The average time it takes to maintain a household is the same amount of time it took 50 years ago, despite innovations in laundry, cleaning, etc. What gives?

    But isn't the 'non tangible' expressed in the physical word?
    I'm not saying your 'wrong ' or anything, we all know human beings need both emotion and reason. 'm just curious to know your opinion.

    What I'm talking about, Eck, is the nature of human interaction. Regardless of environment nothing much has changed, I suspect, about the way we react emotionally to our environment.

    And, as a homeowner, I can affirm that little has changed in the amount of work it takes to maintain a "suitable" living environment in my lifetime. We were also told in high school that by the time we had reached working age that a work week would be reduced to four days. What I see now is people working two and three jobs and a great deal of overtime. A further example would be the amount of time it takes to check out a library book even with the modern electronic method. But that's beside the point of the OP.

    How is the argument unfitting, you said we were better off and more comfortable now. I'm just asking you to apply a definition of "better off and more comfortable" since using one definition makes your statement laughable.

    Oh, here is a nice source, although the studies by McCarthy and McArthur themselves elude me.

    And are you kidding? Have you been to the grocery store on senior discount tuesday? I'd prefer the saber-toothed tiger. Anyways this is getting off topic.

    Emotions are important because they exist and affect human behavior, thus they need to be considered.
