Human caused global warming is 'overhyped'

muslimnomore

I am certain that the emission of green house gases produced through human activity has affected climates and temperatures world wide. There is no question about this in my mind. It is not even a matter of mere correlation really. Greenhouse gases trap heat and human beings are pumping out excessive amounts of ghg's into the Earth's atmosphere. I am not certain that human caused global warming is as big of a threat as the scientific community and popular media purport. Specifically, I am...

In practice, socialism requires a ruling elite.

RoyLatham

Definitions. For this debate, "in practice" means "as generally applied to humans having ordinary human nature." We might suppose "In theory, police are not required to enforce laws." That's because theoretically every person might study the laws to find out what they are and then voluntarily choose to obey them. In practice, police are required.

it is perfectly normal to feel like you are hunting when eating with only a fork

KingDebater

Sometimes when I am eating my dinner and the only cutlery I have to eat with is a fork, I feel like I am hunting. I think this is perfectly normal because you need a bit of excitement in your life once in a while.Suddenly, a battered sausage and chips dinner from the chip shop turns into a wild Pig and Potato hunting safari. Perhaps this tomato liquid may even come into use, and this salt will come in handy as well. Some of my friends think this is odd because I...
