  3. Not all contracts have to be written in order to be valid.
  4. My grandmother had it done two years ago and her vision reverted to perfect 20/20 vision and she hasn't had to wear glasses for anything since the surgery. She told me it was painless and rather quick as well.
  5. Interesting.... Not that we didn't already know the answer to this.. at least it helps. http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2011/04/formerly-blind-children-shed-lig.html?etoc

  7. The axioms (Existence, Identity, and Consciousness) are not taken on faith. They can't be disproved because any attempt to disprove them is a contradiction. By this I mean that the only way to disprove them is by using them. It is the idea of the "stolen concept" that Rand sometimes referred too. Any attempt to disprove the axioms illustrates why they exist and why any attempt to prove or disprove them is futile. They are hardly issues of faith.
  8. Thanks everyone for the fast responses. This is what I was looking for exactly
  9. Ah, that makes sense. An alternative definition I was thinking could be applied to "ignorance" would be the refusal to learn or the refusal to admit to a lack of knowledge.
