So a cake chart would be a 3d pie chart and a bar graph combined, is that right?

Yeah, basically. Although we can inception one level more, and have a Layered Cake Chart, where every Slice is actually made of slices going vertically.

Opinion 2: Cults and religions are differentiated mainly by size/number of adherents.

Cults or "high demand religions" require a higher level of conformity from their members, and they strictly control members' beliefs and behaviors, often reinforced through public shaming and humiliation.  Many believe that brainwashing is also involved.  My opinion is that the size of the movement doesn't determine whether it is or is not a cult.

That's what modern usage refers to as a "cult," but historically it had other meanings.  The old mystery cults, for example, were very different from this modern meaning.

Opinion: people shouldnít indoctrinate their children into cults/religion, or politics, or anything else. Teach children skills they need, donít tell the, what to believe

Opinion 2 is definitely disprovable, so correct me if it is wrong, opinion at the top seems correct to me but I think itís more subjective than opinion 2
Yeah education should always be secular and religion has no place in schools. However religions should not be outlawed unless they're death cults or something. Freedom of religion is a basic human right.

And I'm saying this as a (very casual, I don't go to church or anything) Christian.

I donít remember saying anything hot about outlawing it, just that parents shouldnít force their children to believe what they do

Opinion: whatís considered overthinking varies from person to person

Also the degree towards which they demand a clash with standard social mores, for varying values of social mores.

What do you guys think about deliberately not seeking out information regarding something unknown?

The only merit I think such wilful ignorance possesses is that it can allow for joyful discoveries on a planet Earth which otherwise has fewer and fewer mysteries to uncover

That is indeed the only merit, which I couldn't care less about. It is not worth it. Science and acquisition of knowledge is an end in and of itself. Everything in exitence should be researched and catalogued to the best of our abilities.

I agree, also, weíve only explored like 5% of the ocean, so thereís that to uncover.

Opinion: the moons of Jupiter and Saturn should be studies more, at least the ones that contain liquids

I can't wait until we've got a UAV snooping around the ice of Europa

An unmanned submarine exploring under the ice would be amazing.

Yes to both
Similar deployments to Titan would be interesting too, there are hypotheses on how life could work if methane took the place of water, and Titan has liquid methane, so maybe we could figure out whether life could start in methane too

The surface is probably not very interesting, especially if you're trying to find life.

A mission to Europa should maybe land in one of those canyons (I assume the ice is thinner there) and then drill down to the subsurface ocean (don't worry about sterility besides cleaning the drill and submarine somewhat before launch, the years in vacuum should kill absolutely anything). Analyze the conditions there then go looking for alien aquatic life. It would be a massive sensation if anything is found. It certainly isn't too deep because at some point, water just becomes ice from pressure so the ocean isn't thousands of kilometers deep. Then the submarine should somehow be recovered so it can radio back its findings (there's no way you will get a signal through kilometers of ice).

This is literally Apollo-tier and might not happen in the next 50 years.

That would be so mental, I love it. Highly ambitious though

Fingers crossed, given the exponential rate of scientific research and application, we may not have to wait 50 years to reach Europa
