    I don't want to hear your philosophical musings about money. My question is:  Do you know, from a strictly scientific standpoint, what Money actually is?

    It's a fancy IOU or generic credit slip that stands for goods or services owed.

    When you google the definition it simply states truth.
    Mobile-friendly - : something generally accepted as a medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment: as. a : officially coined or stamped metal currency. b : money of account. c : paper money. a : wealth reckoned in terms of money.
    Basically something in exchange for something you want or need.

    How about a tip of the iceberg?

    It is a certificate of productivity. Unless stolen.

    J. Madison wanted us to use specie and not dollar bills/notes.

    You may laugh at me, and feel free to do so if you feel so, but taking something without ever producing it - is also productivity.

      Okay I take twenty dollars from the church collection plate as it goes by, without anybody noticing because I am clever like that and I have no conscience what so ever.( I came to church for free money.)
      I have done nothing to earn it as far as goods or services.
      Where is the productivity?
      Everyone else has put in money which they earned by providing goods or services (or stole and are now atoning for their sins.)

      What is your definition of productivity?

        What if they willingly give you the collection plate?

          I will spend that money and it is good for the economy?

            That is a completely separate issue.

    Obama made importing of Ivory illegal just this year. Poaching is bad producing.
    Bad for the elephants.

      Money is hovercraft.

    But it will not be good for the church if they give me the collection plate. The church could fold. it will cease to exist if they continue to give the collection money to me every week just because I ask nicely.   
    Atheists will cheer, but the theists won't.

      Perhaps a morally conscious Satan is something that should not be discouraged.

        how is a MCS discouraged?

          DasEngelposted 2 years agoin reply to this

          Good question!


          The answer is: By sending a MCS to a school.

            Where they learn from a strictly scientific standpoint, what Money actually is.

                Kathryn L Hillposted 2 years agoin reply to this

                yes. thankfully so, because they love money.
                Where would they be without it?

    The issue of morality should be discussed separately. And we all know the fact that we can create money, but money can not create us.

    I feel that a few years later I'll tell you that the only thing that really matters, is one's own conscience.

    1. Kathryn L Hill profile image79
      Kathryn L Hillposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      but, you said MCSs can be discouraged by a school.
      What encourages their moral consciousness / conscience?

      or can it only be discouraged in your view?

        I'm a radio device. There are many channels that I can tune in to. In my short life, I have accessed quite a few of them.

        I can talk about reality, and its channels, only as much as I've personally experienced. I can't talk about what goes on with other radio devices.

        1. Kathryn L Hill profile image79
          Kathryn L Hillposted 2 years agoin reply to this

          It is good to respect different radio devices and allow them to tune into whatever channels they wish.

    Money is material compensation for an educational and skill set acquired.  The higher the educational and skill set, the higher the material compensation.

      In theory, yes. In practice -- not always.
