    if no one had any emotions, the world might be a better, or worse place. better, because no one would be sad, lonely, evil, etc. worse, because no one would feel satisfaction, love, happiness, etc. since alot of animals tend to have not as many emotions as humans, do you think it would be for the better or worse without them? explain (sounds like a school problem)

    Life without emotions would be kinda boring because can you imagine what sex would be like?

    Me: Oh Yeah
    Girl: Oh Baby
    Me: Oh Yeah
    Girl: Oh Baby

    If I wanted to see that I'd watch Cinemax.

    A world without emotions is just one gigantic cock block to the planet.

    The world would be a more efficient place, but lifeless and less enjoyable. Then again if we couldn't feel enjoyment, it wouldn't matter anyway.

    Isn't it said that without emotions (regrets, anger, love, hate) there is peace? Peace is stillness and completeness, where everything is content, natural and simple.

    How do you feel about this? Perhaps it's not emotions that kill peace, but our lack of control of our own self over our inner emotions.

    everyone would be dead very quikly. no one would fear for the life, so they would walk in the middle of roads, and no one would care about other peoples lives, so they would keep on driving. all we would have are the basic things we want in life, food and stuff, but we would end up eating posion sooner or later, because we wouldn't care WHAT food, just need food. so it would be boring, but only for a while, cause we would die soon after :)

    Well I think if we didn't have emotions, we probably wouldn't be human.
    Just speaking biologically, many emotions are linked to situations in which we need them. Fear for example, is an excellent motivator.
    ------------------------------
    Human we are,
    Confused bastards,
    We hate, we love.
    We heal, we kill.
    The same hands that hug a baby
    Can dash it against the floor.
    It's just one of those things.
    --------------------------------

    You hit it on the head though--lack of self-control over emotions is a chronic problem the world over

    Life without emotions would be meaningless...all the choices we would make will be based on random binary system...and no one would be able to enjoy the "fruit of the labor"

    There would be no art...no anime...and no NARUTO!!! That would be terrible.

    having no emotions kinda loops around in circles to where you think about nothing, do nothing, say nothing, or desire nothing. we honestly would just rot away. also, there would be no emoticons!! oh no!

    if you had no emotions, you wouldnt even care if the world was a better place. you wont even feel happy that you are alive.

    I honestly think emotion is one of the crucial parts of life. Without it, our lives would be extremely dull. It's like every individual is dead emotionally. We would be lifeless, walking forms.

    Emotions aren't something that is magical. Emotions are basically just states that are used to described the way our mind responds to different scenarios.

    Since our minds will always respond differently to the different situations around them, you can't have a mind without emotions. There could be one, technically, but it'd likely kill itself of almost immedietely, because if it doesn't react differently to the things around it it will surely die.

    Life wouldn't really be life without emotions, as stated already we'd be like a bunch of zombies who wouldn't care what happened, its kinda scary to think about a life without such things as anger, happiness etc

    robots

    Well, in Star Trek, there is always an emotionless character. There are the Vulcans, the borg, Data, and various holograms. Ironically it's these emotionless beings that teach us more about our humanity through their misunderstandings of emotions. THe same goes for the Terminator when he gets lowered into the smelting pool. THat was the only time i cried in a movie...and it was because a robot died. But then again, this isn't Star Trek or Terminator.

    But like someone said earlier, the absence of emotion is peace. So maybe we'd all be sitting around all day staring at clouds.

    Life without emotions would be totally peaceful but also boring as hell so it has both good and bad sides.

    Emotions dicate humans' actions while instincts dicate animals' action. After all, humans are the ONLY species that smex out of pleasure not necessity. So, it would be a pretty dangerous place. (Hmmmm. What would the world be like if everyone were perfect?)

    Life without emotions. Hmmmmm. Well many people believe that emotions go against logic, when in actuality they can go hand in hand. Emotions can cloud logic at times, but sometimes it's just logical to feel certain emotions, so I guess it would be a life with 50/50 logic.....or something like that.
