|About Me:||My prime issue is the economy. Money is the most detrimental invention of all time and has done nothing but hurt us since it's been invented. A Resource-Based Economy in any form (zeitgeist, venus project, etc) would be much more beneficial for not only 100% of the human population, but 100% of all living things.|
|Activities:||Longboarding, videography, talking about politics and religion, cooking, piano, guitar, anything fun. I aspire to travel a lot when I'm older.|
|Beliefs:||Soldiers are not heroes, they are just poor decision makers. Money is the worst invention of all time and a world organized without it would be better. I don't respect opinions when they are factually wrong. Magic does not exist, and God is a non-explanation. It doesn't matter if I can explain something. Embarrassment is an illusion. Be yourself; embarrass yourself 1000 times and the 1001st time won't matter. I'm Straight Edge, but I have no problem with people who smoke weed, but alcohol and tobacco are primitive.|
|Movies:||It's always the last movie I saw, no matter how bad it is. I just follow the psychological journey the hypnotizes me into liking the movie. BUT I liked Chronicle a lot, and Horrible Bosses and Pineapple Express are the 2 comedies that stand out the most in my mind.|
|Music:||Ra Ra Riot Foster the People The Temper Trap Tokyo Police Club Outasight Gavin Degraw Fall Out Boy to name a few...|
|Quotes:||"We don't have bodies; we are bodies." -Christopher Hitchens|
"Any part of the brain can be damaged. You can cease to recognize faces, forget language, etc ... but at death you can somehow rise off the brain with all of your faculties intact, recognize grandma, and speak English."
|Sports Teams:||I don't follow sports|
|TV Shows:||I don't always watch TV, but when I do, I watch 30 Rock, The Daily Show, and Always Sunny.|
Say I have a really nice house and you really want to buy it, because you think it'd make your family's life a lot better. However, I reject all of your offers. Because of this, you plan to break into my house and kill me. I find out, so now if you break in, you're risking your life. If you follow through with this plan, are you a hero to your family or do you just have very poor problem solving skills? Even if I was acting like a total a-hole, that still is not the way you handle any situation....

Resolution and BOP:The burden on PRO is to prove that the world would be a better place with a resource based economy. The burden on CON is to prove that the world would not be better with a resource based economy, and we're perfectly fine with the system we have in place.Definitions:A Resource-Based Economy is the fair and sustainable distribution of natural resources, governed/influenced by science, but is not the totalitarian ruling by scientists. The main concern in this type of economy is t...
Rules:The first round is for acceptance.New arguments made in the fourth round will not be counted.Resolution & BOP:The burden on the PRO is to prove that God is theoretically possible, without the use of magic. The burden on the CON is to prove that God cannot exist without magic.Definitions:God will be defined as a supreme omniscient, omnipotent, conscious being who created and/or governs the universe. The PRO may tweak this definition in the first round.Magic will be defined as anything a...
