>if Pluto and Charon will turn into similar contact binary or not

not really, and it's not just about the size - the Solar System is way too old.

The theory behind Ultima becoming a contact binary is that there were other bodies in this tiny system which extracted the rotational energy from Ultima and Thule by the process of tidal deceleration (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_acceleration#Tidal_deceleration).
These satellites have either been ejected out of the system or are orbiting at a far distance - and the New Horizons team is hoping to find at least one of these bodies responsible for this.

By now any objects large enough to potentially do the same with Pluto and Charon have either been ejected or have already collided with either of these bodies. There is just not enough stuff flying around through the solar system to to that in any reasonable amount of time.

That being said, gravitational waves causes all orbits to be ultimately unstable in the (very, very, very, very very ) long run. Given that Pluto orbits so far away from the Sun that it won't be bothered too much when it burns out, it can potentially keep orbiting there forever - and unless something screws the entire system up (which is not unlikely, given the ridiculously long timescales we're talking about here) - the normally negligible effect of decay through gravitational radiation WILL eventually cause them to collide.

However - as both Pluto and Charon are well beyond the hydrostatic equilibrium threshold (meaning- they are big enough to pull themselves into spheres) - even when they do collide, they will not form a binary, they would form a spherical object (whether you consider it a new planet or just an enlarged Pluto is mostly semantics at that point)

So short answer: they might get closer to each other and collide, but not by the same mechanism as Ultima and Thule and they are way to heavy to form a similar object, they would merge into a sphere.

>I don't know what entry-level means.
Definition:
>An entry-level job is a job that is normally designed or designated for recent graduates of a given discipline and typically does not require prior experience in the field or profession. These roles may require some on-site training. Many entry-level jobs are part-time and do not include employee benefits. Recent graduates from high school or college usually take entry-level positions. Entry-level jobs targeted at college graduates often offer a higher salary than those targeted at high school graduates. These positions are more likely to require specific skills, knowledge, or experience.[1] Most entry-level jobs offered to college graduates are full-time permanent positions and some offer more extensive graduate training programs. While entry-level jobs traditionally required no experience, the Great Recession produced a surplus of college graduates on the job market and eliminated many entry level positions.[2][3]

Kind of soft science, but what's the benefit of equality, many people (independent of political, social, financial factors) accept equality of everyone regardless of race/sex/... to be such a fundamental principle that it doesn't even need motivation, and resort to arguing only about how it should be implemented, but why? It's not a universal view in all cultures in history that everyone is equal, unlike values such as 'dont kill random people', which is almost completely universal, and has a clear benefit for the society as a whole.

Arguments I've heard are
>Imagine if people weren't equal and you were one of the oppressed people
Which is literally an appeal to emotion and can be used to justify anything (imagine if you were on death row, thus death penalty is wrong, for example)
>The recent increase in inequality has also caused an increase in unhappiness
No sources or further motivation are ever given on this

You have to first establish why you were going to treat people unequally. In your terrible example we can establish why someone might be put on death row.

Now establish why women shouldn't deserve to vote? I think Rawls' veil of ignorance is a useful tool here to determine what we should do.

The problem with people that argue for what you argue is that they always include themselves as within the "in" group. So if we make a minimum IQ needed to vote, im sure you would include yourself. A minimum "health" to breed, i'm sure would include yourself. Not very rational.

>The problem with people that argue for what you argue
You mean people that want reasoning behind believes instead of blind faith? What I Believe isn't even relavent to this. This type of knee jerk reaction to questioning why we should have equality of oh, you want a reason? You must be anti equality then! Is so immature.

I knew about Rawls theory, and while it at least tries to explain it, it ends up being equivalent to if I was disadvantaged, I'd be sad, and you need a more fundamental goal for this to work, such as maximising average happiness, but i can't think of a more fundamental criteria that would always be consistent with equality. In the maximise average happiness case e can imagine a highly unequal society that ends up with half the population extremely happy and half content.

>>10300534
So it's purely an ideology that can't be justified in any way? This is supported by a fuckton of people who call themselve sceptics, who value science above all else, would they hold believes with no evidence to this extent?
